Oh man that link has me clutching my sides in laughter. Thank you. The idea that anyone would be concerned about metal getting "sanitized" when it's already such a fringe industry is hilarious. The labels are small and don't care. The musicians don't care. Most of it is sold outside of major chain stores anyways, and most of them probably do not care.

I'm stumpted to find any more than one meaning for "fuck you" that would ever be used in conversation. But that is besides the point. I can say anything in a disrespectful tone. In that case, it is the tone that is the issue, not the words. Working in Southern California, just about everyone will ask about where you are from because the vast majority of people I have worked with are from somewhere else, whether in the country or the world.

Interesting. In the rural united States, you are most likely going to get a specially trained nurse when a helicopter is called to the scene, but not otherwise. That nurse can treat a lot more than cardiac arrest when they are in the air, such as draining fluid buildup in the chest cavity from severe trauma.

I did read the article and I don't see where the researchers accounted for socio-economic background. Additionaly, they point to "nine general groups of traits that were all highly hereditary" but fail to mention what traits these are. This is not listed in the abstract either.
