“So, wait.. we're just going to accept this as truth without much verifiable evidence? The paper has neither a name nor a grade on it, so how can this story be verified? Who's to say someone didn't just write this up themselves and post a picture of it on Twitter?
I'm all for an exposé on this subject, but I hardly think this is it.”

“Common sense-you haz it. Thank you. There's no definitive proof where this came from. There's not even a name on this paper. People are so quick to believe everything they read just because it's scandalous. I'm not doubting this happens, I just doubt this is the legitimate proof of it.”
“"In reality, Phil's prediction is decided ahead of time by a group called the Inner Circle, whose members don top hats and tuxedos for the annual Groundhog Day ceremony on Gobbler's Knob, the tiny hill in the town for which he's named about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh."
Uh... strange. How come I have never heard of this mysterious "Inner Circle" until this year!?”

“This is the problem that I have with commenters such as yourself: you have absolutely no sense of empathy and you assume that every single case is just the same as yours.
My job ended in October and I'm NOT on unemployment. But I've been to a bunch of temp agencies who have only had part time jobs, which I can't afford to take. Saying, "just go to temp agencies, everything will be fine" may have worked out well for you, but that's not the case for everyone else.”
“I've never encountered a company more inept than Sallie Mae. They constantly screw things up and it takes months and dozens of conversations with their customer service to get things fixed and / or properly explained. It's incredibly unfortunate that they're being rewarded for being horrible, but that's pretty much how government functions these days. Hooray for corruption!”

“Imagine the people he could've FED on that money. Ugh. And I doubt all that surgery made him happy in the least bit. I feel a little bad for the guy, he's obviously trying to fill some gaping hole with.. Bieber surgery? I dunno.”

“This article kinda reminds me of astrology: here are a bunch of characteristics and most likely, everyone meets at least a few of them, so it gives one the sense of belonging to an invented label. I'm sure EVERYONE has introvert-like tendencies, just like everyone has Scorpio-like tendencies.”

“I don't have scorpio like tendencies. In fact, there is no scorpio in my birth chart;)”

“No it's not like astrology at all. It's dopamine....neuropathways. Different personality types are quite literally wired differently, and respond differently to levels of dopamine. I'm by no means an expert, but I know I am an introvert. Not being able to relate to something does not make it false, or an "invented label". There are a lot of things I can't relate to...so I don't comment on them.”
"July is usually the warmest month in the area, but temperatures were 1 to 3 degrees Celsius above average."
The ice isn't going to MELT during the colder months. That's not how the basic facts of TEMPERATURE work. Having temperatures that are ONE TO THREE DEGREES CELSIUS higher than where they should be is pretty solid evidence that something is wrong.
And this is why this plant is utterly screwed. Utterly utterly screwed.”

“Three degrees? Come on! Some summers are hotter than others. Maybe next summer will be three degrees colder than normal.”
“I don't understand how Obama could nominate Summers after the speech he gave yesterday. If he does, I think we finally will have proof that he's completely full of it and has abandoned any and all of his principles.”
“"White" is not a culture. Having pride in your Italian, English, German, etc. heritage is completely understandable because those are all cultures with easily identifiable histories and traditions. "White" history merely means "not black" history, and THAT'S why it's offensive. Having pride in being an American is also fine, but being an American citizen has nothing to do with racial identity, nor should it. This guy, his supporters and people like him are either completely stupid or absolutely disgusting, and I'm willing to bet that it's both.”
And that's exactly why the rest of the world can't stand Americans like you.”

“Why? Because my first introduction was four planes hijacked and about three thousand people dead? Because it was my first experience with that kind of terror? Or maybe because in the past twelve years I've taken the time to learn a bit more about Islam and Muslims and no longer blame all Muslims for the attack? That I have not once insulted your prophet, even when my rage was at it's strongest? Which part is hated the most......”

“The rest of the world loves us. That is why there is about a 9 year waiting list for residency permits.”
“This right here shows that President Obama is nothing more than a typical politician more concerned with reelection than standing up for what is right and what he truly believes in. He's not "evolving" on the issue, he just doesn't want to make a stand for anything, much like most of his presidency unfortunately.”
