I am not even remotely surprised that Illinois is at the forefront of this nonsense; really I am not, because this state is just as blue and just as corrupt as any other Democrat stronghold state is.

Or maybe they died of something else before cancer could get them. Studying Egyptian mummies, these guys conclude that cancer is the result of industrialization and "purely man-made".
Dismissing the argument that the ancient Egyptians didn't live long enough to develop cancer, the researchers pointed out that other age-related disease such as hardening of the arteries and brittle bones died occur.SIC.
Of course, you can't possibly get "hardening of the arteries" at a younger age, oh no! It has nothing to do with what you eat but how old you are! And you can't possibly get "brittle bones" at a younger age due to malnutrition. Of course not! Why, everyone knows that people in primitive societies eat perfectly balanced diets all the time.
What a load of horseshit.

And here's even more! How the hell can we possibly be using "one and a half planets' worth of resources" when there is no space industry worth speaking of?
"...[T]he report, from the WWF, the Zoological Society of London and the Global Footprint Network"--oh gee, THOSE guys don't have a stake in exaggerating eco-nonsense like this! Not at all! They're just trying to show us how we should be more careful, right?
It's the usual eco-nazi scaremongering bullshit about human civilization being "unsustainable". They've been peddling this line of shit since the 1970s and it's no more accurate now than it was 40 years ago.

What the hell is happening here? Guy is doing something on a piece of exhaust tubing, goes to the other side of the garage when another person comes in; and wham the truck falls off the lift. It'd be nice if there were some audio or some explanation of WTF happened. Did the lift break? If so, that guy was damn lucky. Or did the shithead who came into the garage do something stupid?

And here's YET ANOTHER entry in the "Don't take nude pictures of yourself!" department:
When sending naked pics to your hubby’s email to brighten his day, make sure you don't hit the group send and mail them to his mom, dad and sister at their work addresses.If you want to brighten your husband's day while he's at work, e-mail him a joke or a LOLcat or something. Not nude pictures of yourself.
WTF--common sense is a thing of the past. *sigh*
