“I think that is the mistake many trolls on here are making. She is a female and a singer. Those are the only two criteria she shares with Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus. There are a vast many more attributes to look at.”
“As the 'Other retailer' in the story, I'd like to distinguish between Kobe beef and American raised Wagyu/Kobe style. Kobe beef ONLY comes from the Kobe region in Japan. It is not available for export in any meaningful volume. It is like nothing else you've ever had, and to make jerky from it would be blasphemous...
Wagyu beef is marketed in the US as Kobe-style. That isn't entirely accurate. You can't really discuss Kobe beef without focusing on the marbling score (BMS). BMS scores go from 1 to 12, with 10, 11 and 12 being the highly prized Kobe steaks. In Japan, nothing under 6 can be called Kobe beef. We use BMS 4-6, since smoking anything higher just wastes the quality. American Wagyu can easily be compared to Japanese Kobe, if the marbling scores are equal.
Wagyu just means 'japanese cow'. It consists of a few breeds used to make Kobe beef. The animals are strictly regulated and registered. The animals are identical, and American Wagyu is raised in the same fashion as Kobe. The sake and massage myth is just that. American Wagyu makes a great steak. But most American Wagyu has BMS scores around 8 and lower.”
“Well, no. See, people who are fundamentalists are right wing. Al queda is fundamentalist. They are reactionary. Ergo right wing. See? Speaking accurately is hard, but it's fun. You should give it a try.”
“That's just a tiny peek at what curdles in the minds of so many. Don Young has been a lifelong bigot and corrupt politician. If you ask an Alaskan why they keep re-electing him, it is because he brings cash to Alaska. He plays the game.
It will never stop until voters do the right thing.”
“That is cherry-picking. The world temp trend is clearly upward since a low in 1910. Antarctic ice is pretty stable, whereas arctic ice is melting quite rapidly. Those two data points don't refute global warming.
The party of stupid is going to deny this until it is too late.”
“Never underestimate the ability of people to believe something they want to believe. And it appears that you really want to believe Fox is great! You just go ahead and do that. We'll leave you alone.”

“If that is what you think, you need to reread the post again. I believe you may have missed the 'second" paragraph or failed to understand of comprehend it.”
“The tide has turned on this. Yes, there are always those who escape the forces of evolution. I am sorry for those who have to deal with them.
Still, even living in a rural red county, gay rights are winning. In a time when we are still shocked at ridiculous positions re: guns, rape and other seemingly clear issues, I am relieved that this position of hate is being won over by human decency. Cheers to my LGBT friends.”
“I have three guns. They are tools. One is for hunting ducks. One is for the farm. One is for my wife when she hikes in cougar country.
An assault weapon is a tool of war. No citizen needs them. Say what you want about being ready to overthrow tyranny. It is a silly reason. If you think it is a valid concern, take the money you've saved for your assault rifle and spend it on some counseling sessions.
