Is Farmville cash really as important as energy or tax money? No, but it’s close.
Gross. I hate this.

Cozy-crazy couple makes tight all right in the city’s tiniest studio- NYPost
Just 14.9 feet long and 10 feet wide!

Dear any non-New York dwellers - do not fool yourselves! There is no way you can share a space this small with another person. We go stir crazy in our 1100 sq/ft apartment.

These people are nuts.


They’ve gotta be Christian.  No other way.

This sounds kind of nice to tell you the truth. The second page details what they do with all the money they save and it sounds awesome.

Why is this so hilarious. Oh, that’s right, it’s loaded with bundles of hypocrisy. I really, honestly, would never expect that from Palin’s offspring.

Can Animals be Gay? 
Yes. And the birds used in this study have the “lowest divorce rate” among birds. But you want the cute pictures, click here for the full story (via New York Times).
It turned out that many of the female-female pairs, at Kaena Point and at a colony that Young’s colleague studied on Kauai, had been together for 4, 8 or even 19 years — as far back as the biologists’ data went, in some cases. The female-female pairs had been incubating eggs together, rearing chicks and just generally passing under everybody’s nose for what you might call “straight” couples.

"Beginning in 2012, drug and medical device companies will be required to disclose payments of more than $10 to physicians, with the first report available in 2013. The federal Physician Payment Sunshine Act was passed as part of health care reform and signed by President Obama last week. Some states also have disclosure laws."

(via New York Times) in an article detailing Pfizer’s $20 million+ payments made to 4,500 doctors, health care specialists & medical professionals in just SIX months. The last six months of 2009.

$20 million in SIX months. Just for speaking on Pfizer’s behalf. Pfizer is the world’s largest drug manufacturer.

Keep this in mind while your friends continue to protest Health Care Reform in this country. By protesting HCR, you are also protesting the new laws that will require these types of payments to be disclosed.

Hint: we WANT to know when huge, billion-dollar drug-makers are paying doctors just to endorse their pharmaceuticals. When your doctor is paid a huge check to prescribe you medication, it might not be because the medication will cure you, maybe it’s not in your best interest.

But, when is for-profit medicine for anyone’s best interest?
