I let him drag it around a little before I made him take it outside. Carpet came clean, of course. +Nick Molo +Sam Welch

"Clinical trials are now needed to establish whether eating foods such as oily fish or taking vitamin D supplements can delay or even prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. We need to be cautious at this early stage and our latest results do not demonstrate that low vitamin D levels cause dementia."

Unanimously ruled!
In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the vast amount of data contained on modern cellphones must be protected from routine inspection.

Desmond and Catniss got into a huge fight at 6:30 AM the morning of the 16th. It was spurred by the stray cat we call Batu sitting outside the front window. I sprayed both Catniss and Desmond with the sink hose, but Desmond wouldn't back off. I grabbed him by the scruff and gave him a good toss, but got badly bitten in the process. You should never surprise grab a scared or angry cat. I bottle fed and had raised Desmond, and he bit me out of fear for the first time ever! I don't blame him, he's 13.5 lbs and I'm sure being picked up like that hurt. The only reason I did it is Catniss weighs only about 7 lbs and would lose to Desmond in a serious fight. They're both vaccinated, healthy and well trained cats, but instincts will always be there. It's less expensive if I get hurt.

The bite itself is not that bad compared to the intestine-ruining antibiotics, and the rabies vaccine. The vaccine causes nausea, soreness and excess salivation, to name just a few side effects. I feel like shit! I've got two more boosters to go! At least I'll be safe and able to volunteer at the large cat rescue centers.

Yup! Right after y'all left too. Worst animal bite I've ever had. Been doing oral and topical antibiotics, and typically I'd heal in a few days. This one will actually take a whole week, which is lame sauce.

RIP Robin Williams. You were one of the most brilliant comedians, and a wonderful human being. You'll be missed.

I found this on r/SkincareAddiction and thought it'd be good to share with everyone. I still have friends that balk when I mention that I wear sunscreen everyday, and I reapply throughout the day, regardless of whether I think I'll be outside or not. 

Skin cancer, sunspots, photo aging, and many other skin problems are so easily avoided with proper care. I just don't understand why more people aren't actively attempting to protect themselves.

So, I can't tell if you're joking or not. I'm pretty sure it's just deadpan humor falling flat on the internet. Cole thinks you're kidding. I'm on the fence.

I don't know anything about left-wing Evangelistic para-aminobenzoic acid, but they do make interferon-alpha and Dacarbazine. I consider their side-effects to be worse than even the cheapest sunscreen, but to each their own I suppose...

Avid adventurer and scientist.
Introduction
I live for: adventure, bikes, outdoor activities of all kinds, coffee, chocolate, wines, great food, good company and science. 

Every chance I get, I travel. It'll be a long time before I settle down, but when I do I'll have two different kinds of education: bachelor of sciences, eventually MD, and the kind of education you can only absorb while travelling around the world. 

Staying in a box your whole life is a waste. Even being a tourist is a waste. GO. Become a part of a different culture. Don't be afraid to view your nation from a different angle. Criticize. 

Also, life is too short to spend it with people you don't enjoy.
