I mean, really:

  • If your intent is to give yourself more than a sanctimonious hit of feel-goodery, why not foster or adopt a. . .human being? Adoption is noble. Ask any Christian who has studied the Galatian Epistle at length.
  • The polar bear population myth is a rightLeft pile of hooey.

Speaking of dodgy research, item #2 is an old chestnut from The Onion:
Revolutionary New Insoles Combine Five Forms Of Pseudoscience

Our third product is courtesy of Jay Leno:

  • Also, never maintain a foe. Make sure that if there is a problem with a co-worker, it’s entirely on them. Give no cause for offense.

    You are being mean.  Stacy is a loyal fighter and supporter of Herman Cain…even if Cain is not much on being loyal and supportive to Stacy.

    If you’re not able to adopt a child, how about funding a scholarship?

    I have never understood people who contribute money to benefit vicious, man-eating beasts.  But, hey, that’s just me.
