I'm mostly picking at their reasoning and using the visitor and activity policies as some sort of cover, which I don't think really applies. I think the only reason this drew any attention was how frantic the guy was for trying to find a date...

Forever alone is forever alone. Not every guy is as lucky as Vexx-ojisan to marry a tsundere loli straight out of an anime.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

I was going to say the band was being silly, but that's not a band type broadcast.

I know bands that would insert something silly into a situation.

It isn't as if the '' tsundere loli straight out of an anime'' would be the perfect match for everyone .

We'll just say that series about "dragon and tiger" hit a few chords of recognition (though I think L*S's Kagami comes closest).

Brazilian police say they are hunting a gang of mostly blonde young women who have committed a series of kidnaps and robberies in Sao Paulo.

More like an alternate reality version of pure and innocent little Shiori......an evil BL-shotacon fangirl that seeks to kidnap cute girls to make as wives and young boys to make as little brothers.

In other words, a monster. Joking. Fujibayashi Kyou (one of my waifus) probably has the closest character to you - BL fangirl + pedophilia + violent enough to break bones of her lover.

And....

Chinese capitalism is just another knockoff

Read the article : the premise on how it is written is a huge joke. And the whole page is just plain silly other than this comment :

Neither capitalism or communism share a social consciousness.

I stopped reading when he said "the US is the paragon of success when it comes to the capitalist system" and started laughing hysterically.

Hence why I quoted the comment. That guy was right......the ideologies doesn't share any social consciousness.

Scientist who coined 'Pink Slime' reluctant whistleblower

Quote:
(Reuters) - Every time someone calls former U.S. government scientist Gerald Zirnstein a whistleblower, he cringes a little.

When he coined the term "Pink Slime" to describe the unlabeled and unappetizing bits of cartilage and other chemically-treated scrap meat going into U.S. ground beef, Zirnstein was a microbiologist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

He made the slime reference to a fellow scientist in an internal - and he thought private - email. But that email later became public, and with it came an explosion of outrage from consumer groups.

Descriptions of a mix of fatty beef by-products and connective tissue, ground up and treated with ammonium hydroxide, then blended with ground beef have led the nation's largest supermarket chains to ban the product.

McDonald's said it would stop buying hamburger containing what the industry calls "finely textured beef," and the USDA has said school districts can opt out of feeding it to children.

For food safety advocates, the campaign to reject Pink Slime has been wildly successful. Zirnstein said even though he never intended to publicize this issue, he does hope the furor will bring about change.

"You look through the regulations and a lot of that stuff was never approved for hamburger. It was under the radar," said the 54-year-old Zirnstein, who lives outside Washington, D.C. with his wife and 2-year-old son. "It's cheating. It's economic fraud," he said in a telephone interview.

Zirnstein, who worked in a meat plant growing up in Kansas, said the situation came to his attention a decade ago. In 2002, he was working as a USDA food scientist and was assigned to a project to determine what was going into ground beef and whether the ingredients met federal regulations.

PET FOOD AND COOKING OIL

At the same time, the beef industry was asking the government to endorse a new product they called "lean finely textured beef" that was largely trimmings typically used for pet food and cooking oil. The trimmings were treated with ammonia to kill dangerous bacteria.

USDA officials approved the processed product. Zirnstein was disgusted, and made his opinion known to co-workers in an email that called the processed product "pink slime." The email was later released to the New York Times as part of a Freedom of Information request for a 2009 investigative article on food safety. The newspaper article mentioned the slime reference in passing.

"Nobody did anything (about pink slime). USDA dropped the ball again. The meat industry soft sold it," said Zirnstein, who left USDA and took a job as an industry consultant but now is unemployed. The issue got renewed life when British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, who advocates for American children to eat healthier food, devoted an episode of his television show to the topic in April last year.

Disgusted by the product, consumer activist organizations, food safety blogs and the media have pounced on the issue. More than a million people have watched a YouTube video of Oliver's show, an online petition has begun and consumers have complained to major grocery companies.

The American Meat Institute says the product is 98 percent lean beef and USDA continues to say it is safe. But that has not stopped a parade of major supermarket chains and fast food companies from spurning the product.

"The whole thing went viral ... Just blew the top off everything," said Zirnstein. Zirnstein said he worried at first about being deemed a whistleblower, but now does not care. "I am really an involuntary whistleblower," he said. But he added, "It looks like pink slime. That is what I said." Asked if he and his family still eat hamburgers, Zirnstein sighed. "The labels aren't clear, so we don't eat it. That's the thing," he said. "It isn't freaking labeled."

They know it wouldn't sell if they had to label it, just like the Monsanto cabal trying to prevent requirements for GMO labeling. Sell whatever you want -- just label it accurately, that's a "free market".

Miss Canada kicked from Miss Universe pageant for being born... male

As far as traps go, she's pretty dang smokin' hot. I bet there are some insecure males out their weirded out right now. Honestly I think these pageants are the stupidest thing ever, its just a popularity perv contest. Maybe some women feel all empowered by them, but it seems like a misogynistic relic to me.

No, they're just a misogynistic relic ... booting her pretty leaves that pretty clear. I don't know how these pageant goons can keep these disasters going.

At my university, we solved the "homecoming queen" issue one year by electing the Creature From the Black Lagoon (or rather a guy in Creature costume with a tux). The alumni were furious, we had fun and it became a joke contest ever after with all manner of beast, gender, or unknown things being elected.

Well those guys you speak of can be weirded out as much as they want. If I were still unattached, I'd totally hit that.
