Twinkie Diet Helps Nutrition Professor Lose 27 Pounds

http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/11/08/tw ... tml?hpt=T2

Twinkies. Nutty bars. Powdered donuts.

For 10 weeks, Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University, ate one of these sugary cakelets every three hours, instead of meals. To add variety in his steady stream of Hostess and Little Debbie snacks, Haub munched on Doritos chips, sugary cereals and Oreos, too.

His premise: That in weight loss, pure calorie counting is what matters most -- not the nutritional value of the food.

Lol, nothing like a satisfying diet.

He basically followed the Atkins diet, albeit in a bizarre way. The Twinkies, being so heavy in fat, satisfied his appetite quickly so his overall food intake went down. But this part, which you can't know from the headline, was also essential to his health and the positive result:

Two-thirds of his total intake came from junk food. He also took a multivitamin pill and drank a protein shake daily. And he ate vegetables, typically a can of green beans or three to four celery stalks.


Yeah, that sounds like a proper diet after all.

agree with you but from my personal experience, it bought 10000 Twitter followers from www.i-am-a-spamming-fuckwit.com I and they added them to my page in a little over 2 month. All the followers appeared to be real and some of them turned out to be great customers

Anti-worms? Nah, this man was really trying to produce "space pâté de foie gras", cannabis-fortified duck liver. The regular kind is produced by stuffing the ducks with fatty foods, after all. He just didn't know that the active substance would never be deposited inside the duck liver. Science, dude!

It might make the overfeeding process more pleasant for the ducks, however...in a way it would be medicinal application of cannabis. :D

Boy Can't Take Service Dog To School

This is the kind of story (video) that really makes you want to slap some school officials for banning a child from school for the WRONG reasons.

This 12 year old boy has epilepsy, and his family has now been able to provide him with a trained service dog that can detect the seizures and provide him with instant help from the magnet device in his collar so he can attend school with much more comfort. The school is saying the boy is not certified to handle the dog with who THEY use to determine proper certification, but yet the boy is indeed a certified handler. My guess is that the school will end up allowing it after some red tape, and I sure hope so. Yes, having a dog in school is a distraction, but it can also provide a sense of true camaraderie between students. Awesome dog.

News from California...

Appeals Court Says Cross On Federal Land Is Unconstitutional

http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/01/04/califo ... tml?hpt=T1
A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that a cross displayed on public property for nearly a century is unconstitutional.

Three versions of the Christian symbol have been erected atop 822-foot Mount Soledad in the posh La Jolla neighborhood of San Diego, California, since 1913.

The current 43-foot cross was erected in 1954 in honor of Korean War veterans and has been the subject of near constant judicial back and forth since 1989, when two Vietnam War veterans filed suit against the city, saying it violated the California Constitution's "No Preference" clause.
And the court rejected arguments that the cross at a war memorial was no different than any other memorial that includes a cross.

WTF?? Google any images of tombstones from the San Diego National Cemetery, and you will see that the majority of them have crosses on them. Are they not on federal land? Do they all need to be removed or changed? Absolutely ridiculous argument, imo. Religious or not, a cross has always been the main sign for many memorials and tombstones. And no, I am not intending to start a religious discussion/argument by posting this, I personally just think it's unreal.

Edit: Here's a perfect example, a picture from Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, San Diego, CA

$10K iTunes Winner Hung Up On Apple, Thought It Was a Prank

http://www.cultofmac.com/10k-itunes-win ... sive/78231

The winner of the Apple’s 10 billionth App download sweepstakes nearly made a horrible mistake: she hung up the phone when Apple called to say she’d won.

“I thought it was a prank call,” says Gail Davis of Orpington, Kent, UK. “I said, ‘Thank you very much, I’m not interested’ and I hung up.”

Speaking exclusively to CultofMac.com, Davis says it was actually one of her two daughters who downloaded the 10 billionth app, winning the family a $10,000 iTunes gift card. Her daughters, 14 and 17, had downloaded several apps in the morning. One of them, the free Paper Glider app, was the magic 10 billionth app.

“The girls came down and said it wasn’t a prank,” Davis explains. “I had a moment of panic.” Davis tried to ring Apple back, but got an clueless operator on the company’s helpdesk, who was ultimately unable to help.

Christina Aguilera Botches National Anthem At Super Bowl :oops: :doh: Image

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/celebr ... s_nat.html

Christina Aguilera hit all the right notes during her pre-Super Bowl performance of the national anthem. But the right lyrics? Not so much.

Aguilera completely dissed both the ramparts and the fact that o'er them, we could see the broad stripes and bright stars gallantly streaming, by skipping that line entirely. Instead she sang: "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming." That was a pseudo-repeat of the earlier lyric, "What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming." If you missed it, catch the moment via the video (in the article).

Well, at least she didn't have a wardrobe malfunction.
