“No he wasn't the first. There are much older ones and this I found out just a few days ago...

...Searched down the article.. Apparently the first known "selfie" (aka Self-Portrait Photo) is from 1839.

Have a look, I found the old pictures fascinating. :)

14-Year-Old Charged As Adult In Alleged Rape Of 8-Year-Old Cousin

14-Year-Old Charged As Adult In Alleged Rape Of 8-Year-Old Cousin

Commented Apr 29, 2014 at 03:25:19 in Crime

“Well, since he ruined the life of his 8-year old cousin, his life should be ruined, too.

Do I think the boy needs to go to prison for it? No, but honestly, I think he should go through an adult trial just to show him what life he is headed too by threatening people and raping them.

I think the legal system is too generous on children. Baby them and baby them and they'll just keep doing things wrong because they've not seen the consequences. I think the method to trail should be the same as an adult, though I think the punishment should be child appropriate.
...Considering modern day: banning them from personal technology use would be #1 punishment... a boarding house of sorts as their prison and put them into cubical maybe with a pair of headphones and some educational program to view on a old style TVs (not smart tvs).”

“Yeah, our clothes are made by cheap labor; that's because no one can afford anything or whine about the prices so the companies ship the jobs to wear it can be made cheaply so you can buy it cheaply.

But the comment was inappropriate and unnecessary.

If the guy wanted to be less inappropriate he should have worn a shirt that was made by himself with his own two hands instead of one that clearly came from a store just as everyone else's. Whether or not he can prove his was Made in a non-sweatshop, I'm pretty sure he uses something in his life that is made in similar conditions.

Especially tech companies; I read Apple had a factory with "interns" that were children one time.... It's not a surprise since the jobs aren't here.... And we, as a country, the USA, have been there with the sweatshops; you have to let countries learn instead of smacking them in the face with your own ideals when you don't live in such a world as they.”

“I work at a restaurant and I had a customer freak out over "something" in their chicken finger. It was a very thin blood vessel; just part of the dead chicken they were eating.
...others freak out over the tendons that are there, the white bits.

You can always tell when people haven't TRULY cooked a day in their life when they don't recognize a piece of chicken as a piece of chicken.

Oh, and cooked, I['m pretty sure you could eat a chicken embryo. I know duck embryos in some countries are delicacies or something... Called balut eggs. They look nasty to me. I wouldn't eat one (I'm picky as heck though), but I know that they are edible.

I honestly think they should requite some sort of cooking class in all schools to familiarize people with what food actually looks like pre-cooked so they can see that some of these "mystery bits" are actually just parts of the food.”

“Instead of worrying about a pair of gay men who are seemingly raising these children great, why not worry about all the crappy straight parents who abuse their children, or don't really care for their children at all.

With the way the world is and with how many single parents whose child only ever sees one parent; worried about "but they don't have a mother/father"... so that's a non-issue if someone wants to challenge that.

Some people are ignorant... such in the case of gay people adopting. Some of these bigots would rather a child feel abandoned and alone for 18 years of their life than be adopted into a loving family that just happens to house around a gay couple.

And anyone who has a problem with these people being loving parents, need to make sure every child in a straight family has both a mother and father who are both perfect individuals before I give two shats about what they say. Good luck, though, since no one is perfect.”

“I don't think the age is as important as the sheer treatment of women in some of the countries and the sheer living conditions of the people that live there.

And something not taken into account in this is Life Expectancy. I'm pretty sure that some of those higher countries life expectancy ranges between 45-55 years old. With poor healthcare, child death is high.
...Human nature is to breed and strive; and in those low life expectant countries, it makes sense to start early.

I don't think its right that they girls are forced off, but I can see why it happens in some locations. Not all, but some.
...And I'm actually tired of countries forcing their 'Help' on other countries; telling them what they can and cannot do like they're their parent. Hypocriciy.... "we did it but it's not okay for you to do it, so stop it" that's how I read it.”

“No, I know BMI was created to only replace that stupid "Approriate Rate" chart that was cooked up by Life Insurance companies. It's not an accurate representation of anything for it isn't a definite thing.

They're study used who? "Average people". Who are these average people? What are their fitness levels? Did they study couch potatos or did they study more athletic people or people who just live normally? They don't say. Did they sample each category? What's the base of the study?

The only way to make this accurate is to test the BMI to see if the ratio is accurate. See how just accurate it is by using their same samples and getting representative data of each. So test the data to see if its accurate; go to a doctor and get real tests done, not a BS scale to make people think they are or are not healthy.

For all I know they could have used a bunch NFL players in this study which can skew it higher but not be correct at all.”

“Precisely why it is NOT accurate. Just like the old Approriate Wieght tables.

You're accepting the view that everyone over 200lbs is fat. That's what this is representing. Thus the study isn't accurate. They used an inaccurate study. The only way to make it accurate is, as I said, go to a physician and get a real test not this average BS cooked up by some lazy people.

The whole BMI thing was only created to replace the stupid Life Insurance chart that everyone thought was cooked up by doctors.”

“It's not accurate if you don't get it tested by a physician. You seriously think that these athletes or the people who just work out a lot, same height who weigh just as much as I do that is simply all muscle, has the same BMI as me?

BMI measures fat, not muscle. Thus it's not accurate.

It also is inaccurate because I'm pretty sure they didn't go around to every state and get an average of height/weight and then average that together.”

Brian Purcell on Oct 15, 2013 at 18:35:56

“The BMI is nothing more than a ratio between height and weight. It does not take into account muscle vs fat ratios. A weightlifter might have a very high BMI while having a very low body fat content. A tall but small framed woman may have a high relative percentage of bodyfat but a lower BMI.

The BMI is not a perfect tool but it does not require a doctor to administer it. You're thinking of an entirely different type of test like a pinch test or more accurate still, a Hydrodensitometry or immersion test.

Your understanding of the BMI is flawed.”

sjtringali on Oct 15, 2013 at 14:36:17

“Yes, I do seriously think. BMI is not the same thing as bodyfat %. BMI measures neither fat nor muscle. It measures total weight proportional to height.

BMI was developed precisely because it IS easy to measure across populations. Take the mean height and mean weight of a representative population, and you have a statistical BMI. Plenty of agencies have been correctly tracking these attributes across populations in mathematically sound manners for years.

It's no different than, say, tracking average income, amount of children, or number of cars, and we know thes things.”

I'm pretty sure that those piggybacks had a good hand into the debt. I'm also quite sure that the changing of mints to coin those stupid "State Quarters" and special pennies had a great hit on the budget as well.”
