In regards to your question re: vegans and pets-- Cats and some other animals kept as pets are obligate carnivores...which means that they don't have a choice. Their bodies cannot digest food except for meat on a regular basis. They HAVE to eat meat to survive. (Dogs can, I think, be omnivores but they still require meat in their diet to be healthy IIRC.) Vegans, on the other hand, would argue that as omnivores we have a choice and they choose the so-called "moral high ground" by not eating other living beings. So there is no real moral problem with a vegan having a pet that eats meat. This kind of voids any argument about eating fingernails or swallowing cum too, because it doesn't harm any living creature except for maybe yourself if you munch a little too hard on that nail.

Noooo Amrit! I'm losing the foundation of my blogstery this month. I'm a law student and your story is inspiring. Gives me the hope that regardless of where I end up with my JD, life presents its twists and turns... Cheers, dude.

YEAH BADIDEAJEANS!! You're from Portland, right? That's where I live and our attitudes are very similar. Monsanto is the worst and I was happy to see that some Oregonians recently set fire to a huge crop of GMO sugar beets (which is NOT ecoterrorism because who cares about property damage). The poor bees :( Though I have seen many in my yard since I planted some nice flowers. I always give them little bee blessings when I see them. You go, bee! You're still alive. You can do it. You're welcome for planting nice flowers, bees. Thank you for making human agriculture possible! Sorry some people kill you ON PURPOSE which is an outrage because millions of you are dying because pesticides and antibiotics. : , , , ( Something like 150,000 bees recently died in a Target parking lot in Wilsonville because pesticides. A tragedy close to home...

OMG you guys. I went to school with Danielle (Taystee)!! She is a great actress. Glad to see someone I met in art school succeed :) (unlike me, who had the bright idea to go to law school. oh well.)

I totally agree with you, for the record. But I also just almost spewed afternoon coffee on my screen laughing, because I just can't help thinking of this. I just can't. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFBOQzSk14c

Condoms are approximately 60-70% likely to prevent HPV if used from beginning to end of a sexual act. I don't find that particularly reassuring. What's more is that as mentioned above, you cannot detect it in men--and even if you could they are completely unaffected by the virus. So if anything, a "nobody's gonna hurt my baby girl" line of thought would lead you to ensure that your daughter gets the vaccine--to prevent other people from infecting her knowingly or unknowingly. "Clean" partners can still give you HPV. In regards to your question, HPV can rarely cause penile cancer in men and some strains (not the same ones that cause cervical cancer) can cause genital warts in both sexes.

I was really torn when I heard this. Cosmos, yes! But there better not be any fucking fart jokes. I'm looking at you, Seth. On a serious note, I was surprised to read that Carl Sagan's widow is a part of the creative process on this? Huh. I'm not sure what to think.

August 5, 2011 on Wait, Do We Have To Like Seth MacFarlane Now?
well i thought it was weird cause at one point dude's like 'yeah we got a dog and a kid with us, why not a woman ._.' so i mean he kind of said something about it but then sissy bartender's wife is like THIS IS OUR DREAM. and yeah i'm kind of struggling to speak english today but the idea that marriages were for love/the man and wife were on equal footing just struck me as particularly laughable. Along with Olivia Wilde runnin' around carrying a gun and riding horses and whatnot and where was the man that was supposed to be keeping tabs on her anyway?! ahem.

I figured the aliens' outer parts were really a shell/biosuit sort of thing and their gooey arms were part of their actual bodies. BUT they coulda just been backup arms, I'm not entirely sure!

UGH CURSE YOU FB CONNECT. um also I thought that it was weirdly paced or not continuous or something, cause I kept forgetting about the aliens for the first hour, haha. and also harrison ford was far too blustery--if he was gonna be bad he shoulda just been regular surly harrison ford and not be all yelling at the indians and shit. but anyway. blah blah blah
