“After a fast I like to do an aerobic activity for an hour or so. The idea is that it will train my body to burn fat since I will be in a low glycogen state by that point. Being conditioned to going a while without food sure makes it easier to skip food at meal time if there's only junk available.”
“The outrage machine has been running full throttle. For the past week Huffpost has been issuing decrees on what is in poor taste and what costumes are not to be worn. Ever since adults stole Halloween from the kids the costumes have been about outrageousness and poor taste.
30,000 people a year die in auto accidents. I've lost friends and family to auto accidents. I had several trick-or-treaters come dressed as accident victims. I didn't feel outraged because guess what - it isn't all about me.
The on line bullies seem worse than the costume.”

“Exactly my point, and well said.”

“Yet if someone made fun of your dead friends or relatives directly you'd be the main one complaining. I see that happen al the time with these so called "Anti-PC" people. Pot calling the kettle black.”
“This is getting totally out of hand. I now know I can no longer listen to music while browsing Huffpost because of the arrogance of thinking I want to watch auto play videos with every tab I open, but this particular page had to open two at the same time.”
“What's with the gray dots on the health care spending chart? They have no mathematical significance but are presented as data points. Percentage of GDP does not track with actual dollar amount spent indicated by the red line, but the gray dots are placed at the peaks of the red line. There should be two scales or just leave the gray dots off and leave the percentages in parentheses.
The graph on the super rich may look impressive, but using absolute numbers is a fox news style trick. Per capita numbers would be more meaningful.”
“Anyone else find these auto play videos you can't turn off annoying?”

“Use Chrome and install all the ad blockers. If not for those I couldn't stand this site.”

“Yep, drives me nuts. Need an app for that. I downloaded a chrome extension that works, but works too well. Shuts down all flash content until you okay, that gets old fast. :) Now back complaining about politics :) :)”
“It is difficult to manage rentals on your own, but you can and should use rental management companies, who take a very small percentage for handling ALL the headaches, including managing the rents, repairs, finding excellent renters, increasing rents over time and all contact with the renters. You do nothing but receive the checks. You don't need to interview renters nor do you ever meet them. It is seamless. There are many great rental management teams who do this in every city around the country. Ask for references. For some, it is about $75 a month on a $1000 dollar rental, and the fee is prorated based on the rent fee. The more the rent costs per home, the more the management fee per home. Being a landlord is no longer a headache if you use rental management teams.”
“30,000+ driving deaths a year, 30,000+ gun related deaths annually and 10-15 terrorism related deaths annually and the government issues a terrorism alert? A terrorism death must be 6,000 times as bad.”

“Maybe they should issue a daily alert to every American citizen saying that we are far more likely to be killed on the highway or by a cowboy cop than a terrorist! This alert is just plain stupid!”
“It's purely a cost-benefit analysis. Many companies do it. Even though flu shots don't work that well, if you avoid one sick day for every five shots given you're money ahead. It sounds a little tea party-ish to get so indignant that someone, somewhere might be some benefit from the government we pay for.”

“i want you to read this and try and comprehend what this means in terms of taxpayer dollars. And remember this is just one perk,,,there are many::: I quote:The latest budget documents seen by the Times has DoD at 801,000 civilian employees. In addition, 776,000 contractor personnel are employed by DoD. Together, the number of civilian employees and contractors is greater than the size of the active duty military. In testimony before Congress, Secretary of Defense Panetta actively resisted any move to force reductions in the civilian workforce. The Times quotes the Secretary as follows:”
