Anorexia - Someone's Tragic Story

"I have made a decision: I will not stop. The pain is necessary, especially the pain of hunger. It reassures me that I am strong, can withstand anything, that I am not a slave to my body, that I do not have to give in to its whining. I have freed myself from this compulsion of eating. "

A really disturbing read.

"Before you play Mornington Crescent it is assumed that because it was Wednesday yesterday you will know that the short rules only apply and from the 2nd turn in reverse order during December. Please also remember rule 7b: All Egyptian moves are disallowed except crossovers and double takes.
Please avoid all surface lines that back onto Mrs Trellis's home between 7pm and 7am on a Thursday."

Jesus n’ Me

"And I started thinking about Christmas, and I realized that somehow I no longer thought highly of Jesus. Examining it, I realize that it’s because of a lot of very recent things. It’s because of Bill O’Reilly and his Fox News cronies yelling about the “War on Christmas.” It’s because of an increasingly loud and angry bunch of Jesus fans who seem to have jettisoned the whole tolerance-and-peace thing in favor of getting Jesus into as many public places as possible as though there was little difference between a cross and a Nike swoosh."

"Throw him," a particularly desperate Needie might even command. "THROW HIM!"

The Effect of Country Music on Suicide

"In this article, we explore the link between a particular form of popular music (country music) and metropolitan suicide rates. We contend that the themes found in country music foster a suicidal mood among people already at risk of suicide and that it is thereby associated with a high suicide rate."

I believe the phrase is "No shit, Sherlock."
