Re: Homeopathy is witchcraft, say doctors

food miles Localism is the dumbest thing ever. For most lefty, conspicuous caring, I think most realize deep down that it is just signaling (even if they wouldn't call it that), but I detect no sense at all from locavores.

Re: Legal Eagle Question

Thinking out loud: If you could make it to the American embassy you'd be alright. I think the idea is that you couldn't get plane tickets or maybe even train tickets or just around the block without identification. And of course the local police are part of the system so when you get picked up you'...

Vancouver was such an egotistical little bitch. Two cities and island? And neither of the cities is on the island? Asshat.

A family member was about as closely involved with the mountain as you could get without being killed or injured. And that's all I can say on the intertron.

He's obviously based on Ted of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure fame.

In a similar vein, I have seen ads around town for the world's first "low carbon" restaurant. Presumably they serve a solution of salt and micronutrients.
