I Thought We Were Evolving - If we really are evolving, then we should just be able to adapt to all of these wireless signals we're creating right? Why should there be any cause for concern? I can't say for sure whether they pose a health threat or not but the linked article says we're living in an electromagnetic field that is a billion times stronger than the one we supposedly evolved in. If some people get cancer from it, so what? They're just genetically weaker and shouldn't be swimming in the gene pool anyway right? Any honest atheist shouldn't have a problem with people dying from environmental causes.

Sheryl Is Crowing - I expect to hear a lot of moronic things from the entertainment industry but this is going to go down in history as one of the worst. Sheryl Crow, a famous environmental expert singer is telling us that there should be limits on how much toilet paper we can use at any one sitting. She thinks we only need one square each most of the time. Can you imagine the oversight committee for this sort of thing? We'll be forced to have toilet paper meters in every bathroom. I'm just imagining the black market for unmetered toilet paper! Imagine, Smokey And The Bandit hauling Charmin instead of Coors and trying to outwit Beaufort T. Justice!

Implied Discrimination - A new study by the American Association of University Women suggests that the income gap that still exists between men and women is the result of discrimination. Dang right it is! And why not? As I said in the comments of the previous post, any employer should be allowed to discriminate against anyone for any reason. If an employer doesn't think a woman is going to be as valuable of an employee for whatever reason, he's going to give her lower pay. Why shouldn't an employer be able to base compensation on what some anticipated behavior might be. Some employers are refusing to higher smokers or seriously obese people too. Discrimination is not inherently wrong, it's simply a choice between variables.
