@mamamia-user-893622181 Sorry, ma'am, you are so burnt out, even the quiz just quit.

@rush Raw mushrooms have been shown to be carcinogenic in mice. Not even trolling.

@little lucy Not entirely true, cooking enhances the availability of  broccoli's antioxidants, but reduces vitamin C and sulforaphane. Best to eat a mix of cooked and raw.

For the most part, cooking veges increases the availability of their nutrients.

From Dr Karl and the ABC: 

"Studies done on raw foodists show that they are generally undernourished. They have reduced bone mass (with bad implications for osteoporosis later in life), and reduced levels of good chemicals, such as vitamin B12, iron and vitamin D. And even though they eat more carotenoids (from yellow fruit and veges) than the rest of us, they have lower levels of vitamin A, because they seem to be poor converters of carotenoids to vitamin A."

Sorry, but it's Friday and this is a persistent myth that needs some bunk removed.

@simple simon Does she kiss her mama with that mouth? ;)

So, very measured, very single. 

I don't know how to put this delicately, so I won't; do you think the doctors pick up on all the wanking?

Does the ECG peak when he does?

Oh flog yes.

Let's not forget the Clovelly Hotel, seem to remember reading that Elordi was spotted there.

@snorks There's nothing in your comment that is a rebuttal. 'Not really' is an unsupported opinion, show me a semi-automatic knife and I'm happy to play make believe that it's equivalent. Snorks, you just like arguing to the point of exhaustion. My enthusiasm for internet arguments is exhausted, so this is my last response on this.

Let's not get all 'pick me' girl.

@millie1986 You should  google secondary sexual characteristic.

@snorks It does ultimately distill to "Too many guns; too many deaths", despite pro-gunners' obfuscation, for whom you seem to want to carry water.

@snorks They will see that as a something more excusable than it should be and yes, ups the chance of young players 'throwing down', or 'showing the coach who's boss'  like their national hero, Kelce.

There is a reason why, universally, enlisted men hitting an officer is very severely punished in armed forces the world wide - you don't want their authority seen as something that is eminently contestable because the whole team will break down.

Precedents are important.

I don't take out the garbage any more. 

Completely, I mean, TOTALLY, out of whack with my dharma.

My dharma's more about hanging out in pyjamas.

@snorks @snorks You're splitting hairs to court debate. My first comment squarely pointed at gun culture being a problem. An individual in any society can decide to kill, whether they have a gun at hand or not, determines their ease and reach in doing so. America's gun culture protects gun availability uniquely in the advanced world.

The US tops the world list for mass shootings (what we're dealing with here) outright. The US also tops the developed world for gun violence, by a very long way.

Only a determined contrarian would try and defend America's mishandling of its guns.

@rush I'll be waiting with clickbaited breath. Their podcast was boring before, it'll be boring again, unless they hire writers..

gu3st February 14, 2024

@snorks Yeah, "guns don't kill people, people kill people" is an often used refrain, in the only country where this happens regularly. There is a choice and then there is a choice within easy reach of the means.

@snorks It was a brain snap that matters. No need to dilute that.

gu3st February 14, 2024

Thoughts and prayers, America and god bless the NRA and your gun lobby.

@snorks Players absolutely shouldn't be manhandling their coach. It matters, particularly when there are so many teen players looking on. All that 'power dynamic' won't matter if the irate player has a knife or a handgun in their backpack, which isn't unlikely at all, in America.

@laura__palmer See my answer to Millie below. 

And, I'll say this separately, because it's way more provocative a notion, which will be deleted if moderation disagrees with it strongly enough.

If you wear a garment that is designed to attract the gaze, you lose some, or all, of the authority to complain when it attracts too much of the male gaze, or from whom it comes.
