Although some high class call girls can earn as much as politicians the comparison is unfair. Politicians are held to a higher level of esteem (whether you like it or not) and prestige. They attract the same attention as celebrities and popstars in public. In contrast prostitutes are one of the most...

Proponent - a person who advocates a theory, proposal, or course of action.

So Baldwin is a proponent of gun regulation which are not yet law in the US

The new right only seem unhappy to apply critical thought to race relations but bend over backwards to apply critical thinking against the consensus on global warming or lockdowns/vaccines/face masks.

Not just expensive, even if there is approval, the planning will take 5 years and then it takes between 7-10 years to build a properly functioning nuclear power plant. Assuming there is a move to push for building replace coal with nuclear the time frame would be; 2021 - 2026 - advocacy 2026 - 2031 ...

Trump hates anyone who could honestly call him out as a fool and a coward: Epidemiologists, Journalists, Physicians, Veterans, Virologists, Women, et cetera.  It is as if he must discredit them before they even think about discrediting him. Sad! He removed most of the funding for the physical scien...

Environmental groups are ideologically opposed to nuclear energy because of the risk of environmental pollution and damage to the environment caused by incidents like 3 Mile island, Chernobyl and more recently the Fukashima accident in Japan. In the past there's sufficient avenues for renewables to ...

BTW...didnt you mean "PROponent". And not "opponent" of "gun laws". Actually it was trending on Twitter back in 2018 as #NoRA https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2018/apr/20/nra-alec-baldwin-amy-schumer-join-anti-nora-group It probably also explains why Kimmel and Shum...

Calories don't matter. When you eat high fat and high carbs at the same time, you increase amount of dead glycated LDL particles which can't be withdrawn from bloodstream through normal mechanisms and end up in your blood vessel lining, leading to atherosclerosis. It depends on how the meat is prep...

I think intent is a big factor. At the end of the day this is an accident. It is interesting (and frankly not surprising) to see how members of the GOP seem to be displaying "vulture" like behaviour https://www.huffpost.com/entry/jd-vance-laura-boebert-quip-about-prop-gun-deaths-to-attack-...

I find it strange that girls respond so strongly to Elsa. I feel that Anna is the star of the Frozen movies. I asked my daughter about it and she said she liked Elsa because she has magic powers. I posited that Anna was the better character because she gets stuff done without using magic powers, bu...

I think to be fair burgers are unhealthy if eaten in excess of how much you burn calories (like any other foods).

If you are not physically active then you increase your risk as you consume fast food.

Homemade Burgers can be healthy if you select appropriate ingredients. Not rocket science.

@Badrobot You have highlighted one of the issues I have with mods which is the deletion of discussion from threads. Often some effort goes into posts and its a little discouraging to see one's efforts removed, However I can also see the other side of the coin/flipside which is namely going off topic...

i find it curious why comments about Trump are being cancelled as if we are no longer allowed to say anything about orange man? Isn't he likely to be contesting the 2024 elections? so MaxE has a right to make comments.
