“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Coffee: The Greatest Addiction Ever

Caffeine is an insecticide that actually kills or paralyzes bugs munching on it's tree.  It doesn't kill us, because we would need about 90 cups of coffee to equal the same amount of pain the buggies endure, and even then we pee it out constantly, so the chances of us dying from it are slim to none.
This is pretty cool video - it's only 4 minutes so I recommend watching it. Where does Caffeine come from?  Who drinks it the most?  How is it grown?  These are just a few of the questions the video answers for you.

Where Is All The Water? - Continued

Last Monday, when I originally posted "Where Is All The Water?," I didn't realize someone had actually cut off part of the chart.  While doing research for my "Foods That Will Make You Fat" series, I stumbled upon the other half of the chart. This took me by surprise, because I wasn't looking for it. Too Weird.  In either case, here is the other half of last week's post, "Where Is All The Water?".

Foods That Will Make You Fat - Issue No. 14

I've grappled with the title of this series since it's inception. I don't know, "Foods That Make You Cringe," just wasn't working for me.  While most of the food I was posting made me cringe, there were times I was posting foods people actually wanted to try.  So, without further adieu, I welcome you to my re-vamped series, "Foods That Will Make You Fat."  My favorite is the Tur-Bacon-uck-en.  Yeah, you try pronouncing that too.
Triple-Stack French Toast and Grilled Cheese Burger
I don't even know what to say about this sandwich.  It looks like it would stop one's heart from beating.  There was no description available, but it looks like it has bacon, cheese, ground beef,  and it looks like it could have egg, but not sure on that one. In either case, this will definitely make you fat.
Towering multi-stuffed Oreo
Just in case you don't know, the Oreo is the fattest cookie on the planet - that's mass produced anyway.  I'm sure we could make a cookie with a higher fat content if we tried.  Oh wait, someone already has.  Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
Seriously? A chicken inside a duck, stuffed inside a turkey, covered in Bacon?  Really?  Oh my lord, I'm sure this would be a great family favorite at Thanksgiving... if no one died of a stroke after the first bite!  You think this would make you fat?  I think so.

Giving credit where credit is due, this series is based on the popular website and book of the same name, "This Why You're Fat."

Poster of the Week - Issue No. 18 - Disservice

Continuing alphabetically, I bring you this week's poster, "Disservice".

Oh Justin Bieber... Someday...

A few weeks ago Ryan and I were watching television when a commercial appears on the screen.  It was Justin Bieber introducing us to his new perfume line.  We just looked at each and said, "Oh dear LORD."

This week he appeared with Jimmy Fallon on his late night talk show, and this was the outcome...
