Then we broke those down.

"We" didn't, the food industry did, so that they could sell more food and/or charge more for pseudo health labeling.

If you want to see the benefits of switching from sugary drinks to artificially sweetened ones, the control group should be drinking sugar sweetened water ad libitum, not plain water.

That would answer "whether". We already know "whether" and would like to understand "why".... Specifically, the mechanism by which Aspartame promotes weight gain / hinders weight loss.

These talks about having the EC changing their vote, or recounts are delusional.

IMHO, we shouldn't recount just because Trump was elected. We 'should' always validate the result and have one random state recount their ballots after the vote to verify the integrity of the voting and recount processes. It should be something that happens independent of whichever douche or turd sandwich wins.

Comment Re:The media lied (Score 2) 286

Any of my non-liberal friends are afraid to speak up because most liberals have extremely vile personalities, and they think you are Satan's Little Helper if you aren't on the same page as them. The vast majority of them won't even listen to reason, just spouting off the rhetoric they read from their left-wing propaganda rags.

Totally unlike you who has just spouted off a bunch of vile rhetoric about how slightly over half of the voters are evil.

Seriously, who modded this inflammatory shit "insightful"?

Like any group of humans, 15% are vile, 15% are righteous, and 70% are sheep and will do whatever the loudest person in the group is doing. It is unwise to dismiss our shared shortcomings.

Comment Verifiable votes. (Score 1) 286

The case for verifiable and reproducible ballots/votes is extremely strong and is entirely independent of the current Clinton/Trump issue. The only thing I question is why so many people think that this somehow requires "paper", as if it will somehow magically prevent tampering and beget accurate recounts and election integrity.

Comment Re:And to think the DNC wanted to face Trump... (Score 1) 2837

And that is exactly why I blame the Democrats for Trump.

If you want to blame someone, blame the sixty million people that voted for Trump, or the 120m people that didn't vote for Johnson. Blame the 200m people that chose not to vote.

Placing blame isn't productive when it is the vast majority of the population that is at fault. We deserve Trump.
