Okay that makes more sense.

Yeah good points on the blood clots too. That makes it worse that they banned it.

Yeah it's addictive, but I think a lot of people, especially teens, use the vapes without nicotine. I guess I'd like to see numbers on that. Also, regarding the chemicals, there are bad chemicals iin everything from sunscreen to produce.

But if we focus on it, won't we by necessity focus less on other drug issues?

September 15, 2018 22:55:24

Eh, I think it's an overreaction. Teens are always looking for the next "thrill"... at least it's vaping and not a worse drug. Also for the vapes that don't have nicotine, I'm pretty sure it's just water vapor or whatever.

LOL. Love the quote.

I always thought the glass of red wine thing was an old wives' tale, but good to know anyway.

I think psychopathy is a strong word. Yeah, it's not realistic, but companies have been photoshopping models for years. Think about toys like Barbie too. It's nothing new.

You've clearly never seen the NYC taxi rush if you're thinking they'll help with "coherence and flow"...

Clearly she was smart to get the internship in the first place, but I wonder about her common sense, haha.

Man, the tennis world has been really shit to Serena lately. No, I don't think it should have been banned. There's literally no good reason for it, and they couldn't even come up with one in their statement. How do you define "respecting the game"? How is one of the world's best tennis players not "respecting the game" by wearing a freaking cat suit? Also she's MORE covered up than other players, so they can't say it's distracting or something. This whole thing bothers me.

I disagree with the violence going on. If you want the statue removed, pursue it through diplomatic means, and vice versa. I don't personally think that confederate statues should stand but II'm also not going to go tear any down.

Agreed--let the market solve its own issues.

September 10, 2018 04:43:31

This seems like a "duh!" kind of moment to me. Is alcohol healthy? No. Will people continue to drink it? Yes. We know fatty foods, sugar, etc. is bad for us and we still eat it. We know tobacco is REALLY bad for us and people still smoke/vape etc.. I can't see this changing much.

I feel like the training was more of a PR stunt because people were upset about it than an actual move to address racism. If someone is really racist, a training is probably not going to do much. However, I can't say I think it's a bad thing overall, just that I don't really trust Starbucks' motives here.

I think it should be legal. Although there's some confusing llanguage (i.e. "natural death") that should maybe be changed or addressed, the general notion that people should be able to end their lives when they are in pain and have no hope of survival is a good one to me. Even though you mentioned that hospice care exists, most people don't want to spend weeks, months, or years slowly dying in a bed, even if they aren't in severe pain. Especially people in vegetative states, etc. It seems cruel to force people to live in that state.

I agree that there's a double standard, and I'd be more on the side of imitating accents is fine as a joke or in a school play, as long as it's not used directly to make fun of someone. Like if you're doing a bad Indian accent in order to mock an Indian person, that's messed up. If you're doing one from a TV show, that's whatever. Same with British accents etc.

I'd be bothered more if Kanye was offended but he went on Twitter and defended Kimmel and said he had a good time on the show, so I think it's not a big deal.

We can't really know because everything is just allegations and we don't know what he really did. However, it likely could be an attack on his politics. Everything is politicized these days and I don't know if anything can be separated from politics.

As a driver, I think they're dangerous even if the technology doesn't fail, because people drive them like idiots in the street. If the technology itself isn't tested for safety, that's even worse. If you want to get around easily without an environmental impact, get a bike.

September 1, 2018 02:50:32

I think it's a waste of government funds. I'm for better technology, but the creation of a "Space Force" is excessive and serves Trump's ego rather than any rational reasons.

I agree it was a lack of morals but I think his comments didn't help.

I think she shouldn't have been fired in my personal opinion, but I also think she was stupid to do it.
