“After flying Ryanair twice last month, I see this is the future of domestic flights: skinny, uncomfortable, non-reclining seats; advertisements all over every available inch of the cabin; flight attendants trying to sell scratch-off lottery tickets and overpriced junk food. The redeeming quality was the ticket price, but I'm not sure if that's worth it.”
“So that distinction makes it okay to torture a sentient being to death for the amusement of spectators? I guess you get that speciesism from your bible telling you god separated us from the other beasts?”

“That's their own traditional celebration, a kind of sport with fun and amusement. So are you of that feeling you'd rather choose the humans over the beast to get injured or die?”
“Right? Notice how he made no mention of any long hair besides dreads.”

“Dreads are easier to grab. But I remember back in the day seeing white guys with long hair flowing out of their helmets and thinking that was equally stupid.”

“It is hard to manufacture outrage over such minor (or in this case, imagined) instances of racism? Do you just walk around all day waiting for an opportunity to point your finger at something 'racist'?”
Significant Drop in Global New HIV Cases and AIDS Deaths
According to a new report from the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the global effort to combat HIV has achieved dramatic success during the past decade, with significant decreases in new HIV cases and AIDS-related deaths. Such achievement has come even as global donor funding for combating HIV has remained essentially flat since the international financial crisis hit in 2008.
New HIV infections in both adults and children have dropped by a third since 2001, to an estimated 2.3 million in 2012. The decline among children alone has been more dramatic: The 260,000 new infections in 2012 represent a 52 percent drop since 2001. Also, after hitting a peak in 2005, AIDS-related deaths have fallen 30 percent along with a massive global push to expand access to antiretrovirals (ARVs).
“It's weird that Steve Lonegan doesn't possess the cognitive abilities to understand the point Cory Booker was making. Oh wait, he's a Republican.”

“Yes Booker made a good point, but he also made it fairly clear that he is not gay with this statement he made saying that he wanted to keep his romantic life private; “Because how unfair is it to a young lady to put them in the spotlight if they haven’t signed up for that yet?
“Before I bought an Outback in Feb, I drove a Pontiac Vibe for 8 years. That car always started, except when I needed a new battery, took me on several cross-country trips and was fun to drive. It also sipped fuel.”
“You obviously know nothing about Subarus. WRX are a favorite car of the 18-35 demographic. They are safe, fun to drive and well made.
I have an Outback as do several people I know. We are all late 30-early 40. Used Subarus are in high demand.”

“The Subaru gets very poor gas mileage for a small car, service and parts are expensive and the Subaru is hideously ugly as cars go. Other than that, they are OK.”

“Only applies if the shark ripped his balls off and he can't add his stupidity to the gene pool or if
"Nominees significantly improve the gene pool by eliminating themselves from the human race in an obviously stupid way. They are self-selected examples of the dangers inherent in a lack of common sense, and all human races, cultures, and socioeconomic groups are eligible to compete. Actual winners must meet the following criteria:
Out of the gene pool: dead or sterile.
Astounding misapplication of judgment.
Cause one's own demise.
Capable of sound judgment.
The event must be true."”

Wait, wait, don't tell me... free will, right? Gawd is absolved for all the world's ills, but revered for all it's wonders. How convenient.”
