Either these researchers are participating in the most epic troll ever, or who knows?

Watching the warfare erupt over this study is entertaining.

perhaps it's time you divorced Earth for a younger, healthier space object.

We are never getting off this planet. Unless our debt/war/poverty is a cover for a secret something or whatever. The 99% are SOL either way.

I'm glad I got a lol out of that. I was just thinking about that post last night and sad that no one laughed at my brilliance.

It's funny how Ron Paul makes sense. And the rest of them sound like crooks who are only looking for power.

I think this one takes the cake for most epic pedophile troll ever:
Study: Multitasking hinders youth social skills

The study only included girls who responded to a survey in Discovery Girls magazine, but results should apply to boys, too, Clifford Nass, a Stanford professor of communications who worked on the study, said in a phone interview. Boys' emotional development is more difficult to analyze because male social development varies widely and over a longer time period, he said.
Yup, adolescent girls come quick and easy...not so much for the boys...perv

Wrote Issa to Holder:
[Your] actions lead us to conclude that the department is actively engaged in a cover-up. If the department continues to obstruct the congressional inquiry by not providing documents and information, this committee will have no alternative but to move forward with proceedings to hold you in contempt of Congress.

Meet Big Brother's bigger Father and and his even bigger Mother:

Quote:
In July 2011, I had a post on Big Government which looked at the Nevada DMV’s refusal to okay a personal license plate request worded “GOPALIN.” The gentleman who had requested the plate, Nevada resident James Linlor, had also requested “PALIN,” “PALIN12,” or “PALIN16,” and been denied on all those as well. As a result, on July 15, 2011, he filed suit in U.S. District Court alleging his rights had been violated.

At the outset it’s important to note that while the Nevada DMV tried to justify their rejection of a “GOPALIN” plate on the grounds that it was supposedly “vulgar or obscene or expressing superiority of political affiliation,” they had no problem okaying the following plates: ““GOGREEN,” “DMOCRAT,” “AL GORE,” “KERRY,” “EDWARDS,” “DEAN,” “HILLARY” and “RONPAUL”. (Moreover, Linlor claims that when he applied for a “GOOBAMA” plate, the DMV approved it.)

The head and ultimate decision maker for the Nevada DMV is Bruce Breslow, a Democrat who holds his job at the appointment of Nevada’s Republican Governor, Brian Sandoval. And for reasons unknown (and inexplicable), Gov. Sandoval is apparently siding with Breslow on this issue, if only by the simple act of keeping Breslow as DMV Director when such duplicitous, politically-motivated approvals and denials of personalized plate requests are taking place.

Again, just think about it: “GOPALIN” could not be approved because it was too “political” but “DMOCRAT,” HILLARY,” and “GOOBAMA” were all acceptable.

While some are asking whether Gov. Sandoval is standing by Breslow as a way to “curry favor with the unions representing the DMV and State employees,” the bottom line is that he’s making the wrong stand regardless of his reasons for doing so. And when questioned on the matter, the only answer the governor’s spokesman will give is “no comment.”

Sadly, this case has now moved up to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Which means Gov. Sandoval is determined to continue spending Nevada tax-payer dollars for attorney’s fees and other costs tied to defending the Nevada DMV’s decision. It just seems a bit ridiculous when you think about the fact that this is all the result of trying to prevent a Nevada citizen from putting a “GOPALIN” license plate on his vehicle.
