Bullets, brain cells, and breasts

A mother wants you to see what bullets did to her child.

Plastic eating mealworms may save our planet from ourselves. And we need to build many of these 'trash wheels' and let them go all over the planet's oceans.  Kinda like really large roombas...

How to build new brain cells.

GMO Arctic apples.  Bacon is not fatal, just not particularly good for you.  Lettuce by LED lights.

Here's what Marijuana does to breast cancer.

We vote not for what we like but against what we're afraid of.  Fear works.

Uh oh... Scientology has its own candidate for Senate.

No matter what they say, it's all about sex.

Take, for instance, Monica Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, who was one of the major organizers for the past weekend’s nationwide protests of Planned Parenthood. The official story Republicans are pushing is that the attacks on Planned Parenthood are about “life,” but Miller broke with the party line and let the truth slip out on a Catholic radio program. “I say even if Planned Parenthood didn’t perform one single abortion, just the mere fact that its sexual ethic is corrupted means right there, should be the reason right there, that they should not receive any federal money,” Miller argued. “The kind of sexual ethic that Planned Parenthood promotes is sex for recreation, sex for mere pleasure.” 

It’s clear why Republican leadership might not want people to hear that the anti-choice movement, at its core, is about trying to end the practice of sex for pleasure.

ACLU Sues Ex-Psychologists Who Designed CIA Torture Program

Ada Lovelace.  Kate Beaton's take.

This quote about Fox News

Is marvelous:
Some people think the media business is tough, but think of it like teaching preschool. There's a whole range of strategies, but one of them, guaranteed to work, is walking into class every morning and handing out giant tubs of ice cream. The Fox lineup is the media equivalent of this: a giant pile of tits, explosions and football.

Giant air sucking machines and other stuff

Giant air sucking machines may be coming your way.  And that's a good thing.

The abortion pill, why it works well and why it's being prevented from doing so.  And why the Republicans are out of step with the rest of America.  And why even talking about having had an abortion makes you a whore.

What gun shots do to a body.  What a warped sense of masculinity might make someone do.

Lawrence Wilkerson talks about the USA splitting apart.

Did you know there were many more types of potatoes than what we can buy at the store?

Dear NRA and pro-gun advocates

Dear NRA

What about our children's right to live?

This could have been me.  My children.  My husband.  My relatives.  When does it end?

Update: Amanda Marcotte gives us the 4 horrible pro-gun arguments that will be used.
