Next time someone comes around with a health-based conspiracy theory, the proper response will be:

I'd bet it's more due to that super-dangerous Dihydrogen Monoxide. That's where I'd put my money. Most people with that problem were probably exposed to DHMO. Parents give that stuff to their kids like it was water, without ever realising how dangerous it is!

I'd go on, but I have to take my kids to swimming lessons.

It's dangerous stuff!  Remember last year there was a radio contest to see who could drink the most in the shortest amount of time, and one of the contestants died.

But it's not just radio contests ; according to the US NCHS report 46,419 people died in between 1999-2010 due to immersion in this stuff, in the United States alone.  Make sure you keep your kids away from DHMO!

Is this reasonable and correct because it's anti-feminist, or is it anti-feminist because it's reasonable and correct?

Got this installed in a basement bathroom under tile.  Should make showers much more palatable ;)  Wasn't crazy expensive, nor too bad to install.  Prior to the tile, of course :)

Even the wifi thermostat is working.

Only real complaint is that the thermostat is controlled by a site outside my house - opening up certain annoyances and security concerns.  Will have to talk to them about that.

I didn't understand a thing they said.  But, boy, did I understand the concept.

see, I'm more a slow cooking kind of guy. I'm amused by the premise here, and it seems fun to watch, but apart from that it's not my thing.

Can you keep a secret?

So can I.  That's why I'm not going to tell you.

Any perl people out there know how to map from what I18N::Langinfo::langinfo returns to what binmode / Encode accepts?

Well, duh, we've known this forever.

The problem seems to be too many people encouraging other family structures and then wondering why poverty is increasing... seriously, folks, to fight poverty we need to encourage a return to traditional, stable, long-term marriage.
This study documents five key findings about the relationships between family structure patterns and economic well-being in America.
