  2. Can I ask why you look to Yahoo for news? This stuff is for 12 year olds and its written by 13 year olds.

    I have a 12 and 13 yr old, they send me things they like. Can I ask you why you read things you don't approve of and why you think you should be the arbiter of what others post.
     
  4. I read it because the headline caught my attention. When I got into the article I disagree with the headline. But then again consider the source - Yahoo. They sure are no CNN. They sell clicks and will do whatever it takes to sell a click.

    Sorry if I offended you. It seemed like you were posting many "news" stories of late and they all originate at Yahoo. Just seems an odd place to get news. I consider it distorted and hyped entertainment for tweens who are being misled by somone selling clicks. Their objective is to attain exactly what you did - people talk about it and get someone else to click it.
     
  5. I guess my 16 year old should be the highest scoring Mensa member, but he eats candy and crap to the extreme. I actually do recognize he needs to stop, but affecting his brain to the point of being an idiot? He is in every AP class, and Advanced class offered. Maybe he would be done with college all ready if he didn't candy, or maybe the sugar alternative industry should identify they backed a study. I am sick of these f***ing studies sponsored by people with an agenda. Too much of anything is probably bad, doesn't atke a study to figure that out, but I am looking to get government money for dumb ass studies myself.
    I'm thinking I can get at least a 10 mil grant study to deternine whether people who go into trading have a mental defect compared to others who think making money and supporting their families is a good idea, as opposed to living off the government, ala Congressmen and their leach staffs.

    I have read studies which show sugars in fruit juice are good for waking up the brain in the morning. So I am sure its all about moderation. but I also suspect this high fructose corn syrup... which I drink to much of is bad for me.
