Duchess Kate's portrait artist lashes out following harsh criticism
Wed Jan 23, 2013
Photographs never do a painting justice; there are reflections and distortions that may not be part of the original piece. Also he only had two sittings with her, and may have had to refer to photographs, leading to a less true-to-life portrait since photos aren't very accurate, either. The only per …
Ryan did wash dirty dishes during soup kitchen visit
Tue Oct 16, 2012
NBC won't let me post the link, but there's a video on YouTube of the entire thing. (User edricle posted it; title: "OOPS: without Permission, Paul Ryan and Family Show Up Washing.") I think it shows him hustling through a photo op, but I agree with many others that there's no substance behind the f …
British Airways tests eliminating online check-in
Wed Sep 26, 2012
Southwest still wins this round. Yes, they're offering the $10 priority boarding fee (which equates to an automatic check-in fee), but even without paying it I still get into the top round checking in 24 hours ahead and have my choice of window seats. Assigned boarding order beats assigned seating e …
Classic 1937 steam engine soon to run carbon-free
Thu May 24, 2012
Yeah, I'm confused. How much energy does it take to log the trees, heat them, and ram them together? And what will happen to the carbon those trees would have sequestered? This sounds ridiculous.
Luxury for less: How these 8 beauty steals stack up
Fri Mar 2, 2012
She says they're the "best beauty bargains she's found," indicating that in her product sampling, they stack up against the comparable high-end products... that's the point of the article. That the results are equivalent is implied. It's your reading comprehension that's lacking, not the content. Sh …
Shell game: The house that's home to 2,000 companies
Tue Jun 28, 2011
Offensive and moronic, Tree Hugger. Cheney is a criminal and his activities don't represent the political views and moral structure of an entire state. Three of the last five governors of Wyoming were democrats (Herschler, Sullivan, and Freudenthall -- all beloved). Cheney was born in Nebraska, anyw …
'Chemo curls' another kink in cancer recovery

Mine's like that and not chemically processed at all. She probably spent a lot of time in the sun like me. Surfer.
Gulp! Take a gander at a Twinkie's 37 or so ingredients
Thu Aug 26, 2010
AChris-749391: YOU didn't read the article. One man wrote the book and another photographed the ingredients described in the book, independently of the author. I agree it's a fluff article -- I read the book over a year ago, so the fact that Today is reporting on it now is ridiculous -- but Ettlin …
Ho Ho no! With fate of Twinkies uncertain, try this recipe
Fri Aug 13, 2010
Read Twinkie, Deconstructed by Steve Ettlinger. You won't eat Twinkies anymore.
The 9 craziest beauty gadgets
Fri Jun 25, 2010
I have a Phillips brand epilator (like Epilady) that has rows of rotating discs set at a tilt. They pull the hair out as the discs come together. The first couple of times I used it were painful, but pretty soon the endorphins kick in and it's painless. Now I only notice tingles- but I NEVER use it …
