Dec 16th 2008 8:51AM Everyone taks about how stevia is safe because it is "natural". However, so is sassafras, a root extract used for many years to make root beer. It was replaced after people found it to be a CARCINOGEN. You've grown stevia in your house for a few years? That's nice. Maybe you'll get cancer in ten. How do you know it's safe? Heck, there's a story in the Darwin Awards of some equally resourceful soldiers who found leftover thallium and started snorting it/powdering their feet. They seemed healthy for a little while at first, too, until they started vomiting/hallucinating/hair falling out. Thallium's been outlawed in the USA because it's too toxic to use as RAT POISON. Not saying that stevia's this toxic, just saing that it's good to be careful and investigate. Kudos to the FDA for being cautious. They're not in the pocket of sugar companies, they're doing their jobs!
Dec 4th 2008 6:53AM To the person who said that hunting conserves animals -- then why do we have an endangered species list where animals are protected from hunting? How did the carrier pigeon become extinct? Gee, your plan's almost as brilliant as mine for getting rid of AIDS. Just drain the world's blood.

Dude, he DID use a proxy. In the last article about this, they said that he used an anonymous proxy service and that they would get the caches from the owner of the service.
I say if she got her email hacked she needs to make tougher recovery questions. Common people get hacked every day! You go, kid!
Sep 22nd 2008 5:10PM I want to hear the rest of the story. If this is it, they're both at fault. The woman acted like a child and the federal lawsuit is pathetic. Let's not waste more tax dollars; we've already wasted 9.6 trillion of them.
And if you don't want to pay for something, leave it and just walk away. No harm done.
She must have had a really bad day...

You seem like a sexist pig. Here's a thought: what about waiting until you're off the what, three-hour flight to watch your porn? Would it kill you to go that long? How about you don't like these people doing their jobs, you don't fly?
You know, "men" are old enough to wait for gratification. You sound more like a whining little boy, really.
It is indeed their business, furthermore, considering that you're on *their* flight, *they* will be the ones taking the heat if a mother sues because her child saw your porn movie, and *you* have no obligation to fly.
Aug 26th 2008 2:19PM You've all forgotten one very important variable here: the people he told this joke to were stressed-out travelers, some probably very jet-lagged, at a point where nothing seems very funny.
Ask yourself: would this seem funny to you in their situation? The last time I flew, I was jet-lagged, nauseous, tired, dizzy, hungry, thirsty, etc.
I don't think professional comedians could have made me laugh at that point.
Jul 8th 2008 10:13PM Hey Stella, guess what? You had a shitty boyfriend who cheated on you. Everyone has had one. That doesn't give you the right to smash someone's car -- there's a reason it's against the law.
He hurt you. So if that justifies it, hurting a creepy boyfriend by breaking up with him and going out with another man would justify his smashing your stuff...or maybe "smashing you" if he thinks you've hurt him enough.
It's hard to draw the line, so it's better to just leave lobster in the trunk.
Be mature and reasonable. Because really, if you just let your sense of vendetta decide when it's reasonable to smash someone's car, maybe there's a reason he broke up with you for someone else. I'd be a little leery too.
May 15th 2008 11:58PM Hey sleazeballs.
I want to see a man with class who looks at my eyes when he's talking to me. Good luck for this one, getting a date.
And all of you losers on here who're still living in your mother's basement askinng for skirt shots: Get a girlfriend whose name doesn't end in .jpg.
Beaver Cleaver and Spanky, that would be you.
May 15th 2008 11:55PM Do you want to know something interesting that few people are mentioning?
Nobody *has* to buy these clothes. "Manties" exist too, but you don't see many people buying those (Google the name). I think this line is horrendous and will make these little kids into either spoiled snotty rich-babies or ridiculous bully magnets, but really --
I'm just not going to buy them.
Why would this be such a big news story?
May 15th 2008 10:16PM You know, while I think that cheaters are the scum of the earth next to killers, rapists, molesters and drunk drivers, this was pretty uncouth.
You would not leave old underwear outside. Likewise, metaphorical dirty laundry should be kept indoors as well.
It makes you look petty, and while it may seem fun at first, you could be in for it if he/she sees. Harassment lawsuits can get pretty dicey, even over something so juvenile.
And since this is now on AOL news, she will probably see.
