“On the one hand, good for her for being so fit (and having skin that was resistant to stretch marks, which not everyone has, regardless of fitness level).

On the other hand, she HAD to know that most women struggle with getting back to their pre-preggers figures, and she HAD to know that this kind of bragging would be more of a self-esteem squasher than a motivator for the women who saw it and compared themselves to her.

It was unkind of her.”

“It was not unkind of her this is a free country and she has every right to post pictures of herself. People need to get over themselves and move along if they dont like a picture or post. She was not purposely trying make people feel bad and people need to own their own feelings. By your statement every skinny fit woman and mom should hide in their houses and not post any pictures for fear of offending someone. Get over it people.”

“"There is no known scientific way of predicting earthquakes. The most reliable method is to count the number of missing cats in the local paper: if it trebles, an earthquake is imminent."

This "fact" comes from James Berkland, who is regarded as a nutcase by actual geologists. His "theory" has been thoroughly debunked by studies of actual newspaper items of missing cats and actual earthquake occurrences. It's pure baloney.

It's true that there have been many reports of animals and insects behaving strangely prior to earthquakes, but it's really hard to distinguish between actual observations and distortions of memory influenced by the traumatic nature of the event itself. Some people may "remember" their pets acting oddly before an earthquake, but it's hard to say if that's true memory or not. And even with valid observations of odd animal behavior, it's very difficult to establish a correlation between a particular behavior and the occurrence of an earthquake, much less to the specific time, place, and magnitude.

There are true methods of predicting earthquakes, and forecasting them, within limits. They have nothing to do with lost-cat notices, however.”

verflixed on Nov 24, 2013 at 23:54:54

“Than explain Tecumseh who predicted the biggest earthquake in U.S. history months before it happened. Dogs and other animals have certain sensitivities that can predict. We probably have them also but they are either retarded or can not accessed.”

JamesIanLoud on Nov 18, 2013 at 05:33:26

“You operate under false assumptions.  Your statement “rising tide” would imply there was a greater amount of civility in the past. Given the tumultuous, violent past of the U.S. that would seem to be a romantic, but untrue view of the past. May I remind you of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Kennedy, Roosevelt and Reagan, just to name a few. 
Many like to believe the vitriol surrounding obama is a new phenomenon due to the race of the president. That is obviously not true and in fact it may be argued that he has been spared much criticism due to his race.

“I'm not for publicly booing anyone with their family, regardless of political party, unless the whole family is guilty of some heinous misbehavior.

I was very, very anti-Bush, but I never made any online comments insulting or even critical of his wife and kids (in fact, I always thought that Laura Bush seemed like a lovely and gracious person) - and I would not have booed them, or for that matter even him. Withholding applause is as far as I will go to show disapproval at a public event.

Disapproval and disagreement on political issues should be shown in the voting booth, by writing letters or signing petitions, and by speaking out clearly and strongly, but always decently. That's just the way I was raised - old-fashioned as it may be.”

“I thoroughly agree with you. Then I read through some of the comments after the 2008 story of Bush booed at baseball game. Right here on this site. That seemed to be just fine with a majority of people. Obama has been so insulated that I'm sure he can't imagine how angry people are. And they can write to the WH and receive a canned letter or another lie. And then I remembered Obama's big civility speech that neither he or any of congress adhered to.

“"Butterball's Turkey Shortage Might Ruin Your Thanksgiving"

If your Thanksgiving is going to be "ruined" because you can't get a particular food item - much less because you may have to pay more for it than usual - you have a bigger problem than clearing out space in the fridge.

The name of the holiday is Thanksgiving. If you read that name over a few times, and think real hard, maybe you'll remember what the purpose of the day is.

A Thanksgiving might be ruined by family members not being able to get together, or having your plumbing freeze and burst, or by not being able to buy food at all. But not being able to get the particular brand of turkey you prefer? Come on.

I get more disgusted every year at people focusing on eating massive amounts of food, and referring to Thanksgiving as "Turkey Day" or even (as one local news blatherer called it) "pig-out day".”
