Mmm...the science of what tastes like death makes you stronger. I can't wait to try one.

Hey Dubai, caveat emptor. What does this say about the ideals of Dubai Police if some dude sitting on four open air, super-sized, vita-mix blenders is certain to ensure the public safety?

Isn't this all a result of folks, far and wide, now recognizing that for over a hundred years, we've consuming a pleasurable beverage with negative effects that far outweigh it's positives?

Big Soda is scared and is just buying time.

    Not far from Forever's offices in Ann Arbor is the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation. There, visitors can ride in a car that was built more than a century ago and is maintained by the regular replacement of parts. "We're getting to a point where we can do that" to ourselves, says Clausnitzer. "We're at the beginning of something."

Hey thenewgreen, you are talking about the "Henry Ford of the Human Body". mk may acquire an ego that makes Elon Musk look like a wallflower. :)

Could these be the key statements?

    In many cases, 97 to 99 percent of Progressive Activists said one thing and 93 to 95 percent of Dedicated Conservatives said the opposite. There’s little evidence of individual thought, just cult conformity. The current situation really does begin to look like the religious wars that ripped through Europe after the invention of the printing press, except that our religions now wear pagan political garb.

And...

    Unfortunately, people in the exhausted majority have no narrative. They have no coherent philosophic worldview to organize their thinking and compel action. When they get one I suspect it will look totally unlike the two dominant narratives today. These narratives are threat narratives. But the people who make positive change usually focus on gifts, not deficits. They tell stories about the assets we have and how we can use them together.

It always gets me when the main hatchway gives in and the cook says, “fellas it’s been good to know ya...”

Oh, and while I’m on the topic, Lake Titicaca.

Gitchee Gumee - the Ojibwa word for Lake Superior. Huge fan of it in Gordon Lightfoot’s ballad “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”.

I doubt many hubskiers can lay claim to tougher life conditions. I'll be a bit more understanding of any Guatemalan that I may run into.

Agreed. Stupid to me would describe plain ignorance despite evidence to the contrary. Just a bit different than retarded which can be useful to describe an idea that is slow in developing or needing development.

I find that most any harsh adjective has it’s place when describing situations of impermanence over adjectives directed in an absolute manner toward a person. For example, “What a retarded idea that was to throw a boomerang in our backyard and smash out two windows”. The adjective describes a poorly developed idea without disparaging any particular person or group. This, to me, is very different than than saying, “Dude, you are such a retard!” That is an unfavorable use in my book.

Yep. We have better food while older folks that can't deal with the change. This time it's those damn millennials at fault.

Eating crap cheese was good when were kids. That's the way it was, and we liked it.

Millennials are killing processed cheese food in retaliation for our complicity in saddling them with unforgivable college debt. If that’s the best they can do, maybe they had it coming!

Seriously though millennials. Sorry about the debt thing. Us non-millennials gotta fix that one somehow.

Thanks for killing terrible cheese. My kids manage to ingest far too much of it.
