Study sees rise in men not washing hands
By MARILYNN MARCHIONE, AP Medical Writer
CHICAGO - The gender gap has widened when it comes to hygiene, according to the latest stakeout by the "hand washing police." One-third of men didn't bother to wash after using the bathroom, compared with 12 percent of women, said the researchers who spy on people in public restrooms. They reported their latest findings Monday at a meeting of infectious disease scientists.
So about 22% of American are disgusting filthy pigs who don't wash their hands after using a bathroom. With the gumping of America proceeding at a very strong pace, is it any surprise? This is simply a subtle social symptom of America slowly becoming a third world nation. How long can it be before diseases brought on by poor sanitary habits begin to creep into our society? Next time some lug nut wants to shake your hand, remember, 1 of 3 men don't wash their hands after pissing.
New Yorker pushes limits of the "locavore" life

NEW YORK (Reuters) - . . . Freelance food writer Howard knew about "locavores" -- people who try to eat only locally produced food. But seeing one locavore at a market squint at a map while asking a pig farmer where exactly he lived in New York state, gave Howard the idea to try out life as an extreme locavore -- in the biggest U.S. city.
the 800-square-foot (74-square-meter) backyard and garage to his Brooklyn, New York, house.
He soon learned it was hard work -- seven days a week, six to 16 hours a day. . .
Ok, this is the first spot where I go WTF?! I've got 100 acres and it doesn't forcee me to work that hard.
. . . some of the rabbits died from maggot infestations.
"I was not so much a farmer ... as an undertaker,"
Again, WTF?! How in the fuck do rabbits become "maggot infest[ed]?" Sounds like a dirty filthy operation to me. How were those 6-16 hours a day 7 days a week spent?
. . . he suffered hardships. Howard nearly sawed off a finger building the chicken coop and went without alcohol because making a home distillery was too much work.
That only proves he's a stupid alcoholic.
In the month of reaping what he sowed, he lost 29 pounds, both from the work and sparse meals, mostly eggs, tomatoes, greens, and chicken stew.
WHAT? Working THAT hard, raising rabbits, chickens and ducks and you're starving? Yup, stupid.
Financially the farm was perhaps unsustainable. The costs rose to $11,000 -- or more than $120 per meal for the month.
$11,000!?!?! WTF?!?!?! I know people who could farm for years on that kind of money. Hell, I don't have that much in expenses in a year on my 100 acre poultry ranch.
But now his family has a greater appreciation for the business of food and the people who grow it,
I'd say they should also have a greater appreciation for what a moron this guy is. How inept do you have to be to pull this off. . . and then have the gall to publish such pitiful exploits? And then they might wonder why everyone else in the country assumes NYers are bozos. . . but they don't because they're too consumed with themselves.
Bush calls for expansion of spy law
AP - 1 hour, 2 minutes ago
FORT MEADE, Md. - President Bush said Wednesday he wants Congress to expand and make permanent a law that temporarily gives the government more power to eavesdrop without warrants on suspected foreign terrorists.
Oh here's a good idea! More invasion and violent acts upon the Constitution of the United States! Let's see if the congress will continue to drop to their knees and take it in the face from the corpo-fascist traitors.
Recently I heard that snide little twit Bill Maher (the right has Denis Miller, the left has Bill Maher) on his HBO show urging women to not expose themselves while breast feeding their children and then he unbelievably went on to compare breast feeding to masturbation. WTF?!
How fucked up, Victorian and prudish is that? Obviously this is a person who has no kids and never was involved in a program of raising a child that included breast feeding. I find such comparisons and views repulsive and nothing but childish . . . oppressed childishness.
I agree with almost everything this little impotent wise-ass punk says, but on the idea that women who are feeding their baby need to treat it as if they are masturbating?. . . grow up you little dip shit.
