Bacon.
It’s the chemistry of the meat, the chemistry of the smoking and the chemistry of the cooking that combine to make bacon smell and taste irresistible.

I think the fact that Cecil was wearing a tracking collar, that the hunters tried to destroy, would tend to negate the dentist's claim that he thought this was a legit hunt.  At some point he must have seen the collar, unless he's more of a lying loser than he appears to be. 
A professional hunter accused of helping a US tourist kill Zimbabwe's most famous lion is released on $1,000 bail by a court.

Squeezing pennies out of old folks to fund personal fun!
Like her television career, Sarah Palin’s political action committee—once a veritable money machine fueling the former Republican vice presidential nominee’s ambitions—has entered the doldrums. This year SarahPAC has depleted much of its once prodigious cash reserve, spending about a quarter-million dollars more than it raised, according to new filings with...

... and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
but we'll just shake it off

It's funny how we often perceive the world to be vastly different from what it was when we were children or when our parents or grandparents were young. Yet, in many of the ways that count, nothing much has changed.

This truth is illustrated in Danish writer and thinker Søren Kierkegaard's personal diary, where he talks of the psychology that drives phenomena that we typically associate with the now, contemporary world: bullying and trolling. The thing is, he wrote about it in 1847. 

An excerpt:

There is a form of envy of which I frequently have seen examples, in which an individual tries to obtain something by bullying [...] essentially it shows that he regards me as something great, maybe even greater than I am: but if he can’t be admitted as a participant in my greatness, at least he will laugh at me. (to read the full passage, please see the article)

There is a worthy lesson to be taken away from Kierkegaard's words, and remember, next time you're confronted with an online bully or troll:

Showing that they don’t care about me, or caring that I should know they don’t care about me, still denotes dependence… They show me respect precisely by showing me that they don’t respect me.

"Showing that they don’t care about me, or caring that I should know they don’t care about me, still denotes dependence." Celebrated

Slate: Hacked Confederate Facebook Group Becomes Tribute to LGBT Rights, Obama, Judaism. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIws6X5vSI
Virgil Texas is a Brooklyn-based professional funny person who, on Monday, announced that he'd joined a private "Confederate Pride" Facebook group that had left some of its settings unlocked. He then appears to have surreptitiously changed its header picture a few times as a ruse before convincing the group's administrators...

Always done early, always good value, always fixed right. We've even taken in odd-ball problems and they've worked them out. They'll work on new cars and old clunkers. Their oil changes are speedier and cheaper than those quick-change places AND they never try to sell you extra service you don't need.
