    1. Oxytocin is a hell of a drug.

      1. ADHD is a bitch.
              ?

      2. You mean Oxycontin? Oxytocin (pitocin) is for stimulating and/or regulating uterine contractions. Maybe there’s a joke circulating amongst the regulars which has eluded me?

        1. Recent studies have begun to investigate oxytocin’s role in various behaviors, including orgasm, social recognition, pair bonding, anxiety, and maternal behaviors. For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as the “love hormone”. The inability to secrete oxytocin and feel empathy is linked to sociopathy, psychopathy, narcissism and general manipulativeness.

          1. Ahh, yes I understand now.

          2. “linked to sociopathy, psychopathy, narcissism and general manipulativeness”

            I think you just successfully diagnosed the problem with the H&R commentariat Dr. Mulatto.

        2. “Recent studies have begun to investigate oxytocin’s role in various behaviors, including orgasm, social recognition, pair bonding, anxiety, and maternal behaviors.[1] For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as the “love hormone”. The inability to secrete oxytocin and feel empathy is linked to sociopathy, psychopathy, narcissism and general manipulativeness.”

          Hey, maybe Newt’s campaign should look into giving his sociopathic ass some of that. Just feed him the blood of lovers and new mothers, that should do it

          1. Fuck, I should refresh more often. I even quoted the same fucking paragraph.

            1. i’ll refresh your paragraph

            2. There are those who would say we must refresh before before posting.

              Let me be clear: I am not one of those people because I know we can’t wait!

    2. Pictures or it didn’t happen.

  1. This is much more appropriate here than in the space junk thread.

    SCIENCE!

    1. Not true, because it’s fucking junk science. Venison is not gamey when done properly, Sloppy Joes are anything but noble, and there is no jamon on the entire table, which has several isotopes beyond the base Serrano isotope.

      I don’t know who these researchers are, but they’re probably politically motivated and funded by Oscar Meyer. Good job getting fooled, you moron.

      1. I think the reason they’re noble is that that can’t be combined with any other meats.

        1. Your theory is flawed at the lowest level. The hamburger, at the top of the noble list, is eminently combine-able with meat #1: bacon. And the hot dog, last of the noble meats, is combine-able with…chili, which also seems to be missing!

          No, no, this whole thing is deeply flawed. We need an investigation into the emails between the researchers who put this together. Meatgate.

          1. Wait, chili is at 17. Which reinforces my point even more!

            And pancetta grouped with the cold cuts? What?!?

            1. Pancetta (raw) sandwich. Suuuuure.

              1. Trichinosis, here we come!

                Where the fuck is the liver? And they include head cheese but not Genoa salami? Or soppressata?

                1. Wait a damn minute, roadkill is #95? That gives away the game. This entire chart is a sham.

                  1. Yeah, and lamb is listed as “gamey”, along with rabbit and bison. Idiots.

                    1. Glad I’m not the only one who thought that entire grouping was a fucking mockery.

                    2. And how the hell is lamb at 93? It’s not a man-made meat!

                    3. That whole section (other than roadkill and bushmeat) should be relabeled “meats I wish I had more”.

                      And you make a good point. At the higher numbers should be the meats that can only be produced in a lab, like Spam or haggis.

                2. Porchetta? Linguica?

          2. The hamburger, at the top of the noble list, is eminently combine-able with meat #1: bacon.

            Science, Epi, don’t you even know what “Noble” is? Some anarchist thing? As a monocle and top hat wearing, libertarian leaning conservative, Veal is unquestionably the most noble of meats, on several levels. Noble implying the most basic of compounds, is defined by the loin. Since veal is young and milk fed, it is more pure. When you combine the caged living of the poor, defenseless calf and raise it with child labor, it’s meat has an even greater taste of oppression.

            Even on the list of meat compounds, pepperoni ranks above hamburger, doesn’t it?

            1. Sorry, I didn’t realize they were using “yummieness” as a qualifying factor. Of course bacon is #1.

              Why does Islam promise 72 virgins after death? Because they couldn’t get anyone to give up both bacon and alcohol otherwise.

            2. I prefer to dine on either the tender flesh of a baby panda or the offspring of my factory workers. How dare you besmirch the good name of libertarian with your mundane talk of veal that any commoner can readily get. Good day sir!

              1. I said I was libertarian leaning. When the LP called the house and asked me to join I told them straight up “No, I will not eat human flesh” and they hung up on me.

            3. Science my ass, you hack. While veal is both amazing and missing from the list, it would clearly fall in the “meats that are totally awesome” section of the chart, which was foolishly not created by the charlatans who produced this…work of fiction. Also in this section would be foie gras and duck breast.

              pepperoni ranks above hamburger, doesn’t it

              I should have you assassinated for this.

              1. To each his own tastes, but foie gras simply does not do it for me. Something about liver that I’ll never be able to stomach.

                1. I should have you assassinated for this.

                  Do your worst, White Castle boy!

                  That sure is a strange looking plane. It almost looks like one of those dron……

                2. Liver is delicious, but foie gras is something else entirely. They way the fat in the liver spreads across your tongue as you eat it, spreading that flavor…amazing. Same for uni.

                  I’m guessing you don’t like any other organ meats, then, either.

                  1. Well, if lymphnodes count, I’m quite the chorizo fan. Although I can’t say I’ve had a great deal of organ meat. And admittedly I’ve never had foie gras, but always avoided it because of my intense distaste for liver pate in the past. Perhaps I’ll give it a chance next time I see it around and have the discretionary money to blow on it.

                    1. There is one additional complaint I must register with the table above: it cites virtually every possible preparation of chicken, but doesn’t bother breaking shellfish into distinct groups. Mussels, oysters, and scallops are far different than general tso’s chicken, chicken fingers, and fried chicken.

                    2. You not liking a particular liver pate doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t like liver (depends on how the pate was made, and pates can be very different), and foie gras really tastes nothing like that (unless you get a foie gras pate).

                      Try somebody’s some time just to see if you like it.

                    3. I don’t care for pate at all. I just don’t like the sensation of smearing goop in my mouth.

                    4. I love the pate they put on those Vietnamese “combination” sub sandwiches. It’s the best of the multiple mystery meats.

                    5. If you don’t like pate – and I hardly blame you – try rillettes.

    2. New desktop wallpaper assigned!

    3. Damn! Warty hits another one out of the park.

    4. This gave me PM wood.

      thanks, Warty!

    5. WTH are “steak fingers”? Sounds like a scam to me.

      1. Cow hooves. jk of course, but speculating nonetheless.

      2. Like Epi said: Meatgate.

      3. WTH are “steak fingers”

        Really showing the Yankeetude on that one. Steak fingers are basically chicken fried steak cut into strips to facilitate more breading, and gravy.

        1. Canadians can’t be Yankees, dude.

          1. Don’t tell Russell Martin that.

          2. Canadians are the Yankeeist possible type of Yankee, you ignorant slut.

            1. God you’re stupid. How can they be Yankees when they never put a feather in their caps and called it macaroni?

              1. Don’t they put ketchup on macaroni and cheese? Same thing.

                1. No, we put ketchup on Kraft Dinner

                  1. What’s the difference between Kraft-brand mac and cheese, and Kraft Dinner?

                    1. I think the Canadian version has more fetuses. Not sure.

                    2. Clearly you haven’t had my Kraft mac and cheese then.

    6. I didn’t look, but is Potted Meat Product on there?

      1. No, as it is an unstable meat.

        1. so rather is Potted Meat Product? makes sense

    7. You lost me at Pork Chops at number 3. Pork Butt maybe. And where the hell is ribeye? I think you are suffering from a deficiency in oxytocin.

  2. Thirst!

    1. I know it’s a little early, but I just poured a Cabin Still on the rocks. I’m new to this bourbon, but it is mighty good. Have a good weekend Reasonoids!

      1. They used to sell that for a dollar a shot at Daveys Uptown Ramblers Club on Tuesdays if you asked for it by name.

        1. Just google’d Davey’s. Looks like a fun little spot to get drunk and listen to music. And Sarah, the lovely bartender ain’t so bad either. 😉

  3. onetime my cat left a tootsie roll on the kitchen floor but when I tried to give it back it ran real fast.

    1. onetime I made some lemonade and brought it to the public pool so that I could pour it in and pretend that someone had peed, but once I poured it into the pool it turns out it really was pee.

      1. onetime you are the stupidist fucking loser ever who stoops to spoofing a blogwhore. How empty your life must be.

        1. “How empty your life must be.”

          Says the person griefing the spoofer.

          1. Not griefing. Putting into words for the first time what I think each time that crap appears on a thread.

          2. Fucking spoofer at 7:28

    2. Did you at least get the cat to fart in a jar??

  4. “There’s no reason that legitimate issues raised about PROTECT IP can’t be resolved,” [Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid] wrote, referring to the Senate bill by its shorthand name. “Counterfeiting & piracy cost 1000s of #jobs yearly. Americans rightfully expect to be fairly compensated 4 their work. I’m optimistic that we can reach compromise on PROTECT IP in coming week.

    Look at that shit! Next fucking week he expects to railroad this crap through. Like a senator from Nevada can be trusted on this. He’s determined to take care of his bankrollers.

    Reid is definitely on my five least favorite senators list, along with assholes like Chuck Schumer.

    1. Reid is definitely on my five least favorite senators list, along with assholes like Chuck Schumer.

      #1. Frank Lautenberg

      1. That guy is a freakin placeholder moron. He came in at the last second off the bench when Torricelli had to quit because of all his corruption scandals, spouted some absolutely content-free Democratic talking point boilerplate, and won easily. He’s proof that New Jersey is beyond redemption.

        But he’s still not bad enough to make the top five, not with people like Orrin Hatch and Joe Lieberman to contend with. And Lamar Smith wins the fifth spot for sponsoring PIPA in the first place.

        1. Lamar Smith is in the House…

      2. Launtenberg is pretty bad, but never voiced support for PIPA, Menendez (my other senator) still does.

      3. That skeletal shitfuck Lautenberg is the reason new machine guns can’t be legally registered. I hope he gets raped to death, and soon.

        1. Cocksucker ALMOST succeeded in banning the entire hobby of model rocketry.

    2. Only five?

      1. Well, we’re talking the worst of the worst. On the flip side, it’s would extremely difficult to make a list of even five senators that are worth a shit.

      2. And some of the ones I really hated have left office.

    3. This afternoon, I got a tepid say-nothing response from Amy Klobuchar on this. No response yet from Al Franken. Michelle Bachmann’s response was in agreement with my statement of opposition.

      Yes, thank you, I live at that place in space where stupidity comes to a point.

      1. where stupidity comes to a point

        Listen, California can’t contain all of it.

    4. They can always put it on the back burner, then on Dec 1 pass it to be signed by the lame duck Obama.

    5. I would like to know which jobs he is talking about.

      1. Blowjobs from aspiring starlets.

  5. Also, Newt Gingrich = Pig Devil

    1. Seriously. He looks demonic there.

  6. Romney and Gingrich are now essentially battling one-on-one down the stretch, with Rick Santorum in third place.

    Fuck you CNN. Paul is polling ahead of Santorum both nationally and in South Carolina.

    1. Awesome quiz. Even with my Balko-honed skills, I only got 15 of 21 correct. I am sooo sharing this with everyone I know. I hope it scares the shit out of them.

      1. Same score. A couple were easy, like that last one (SPOILER ALERT) with that fat head sticking out of the tank.

        1. one of them is mislabeled as a cop, the dude with the machine gun and AT-4, so adjust your score accordingly. I got 17(18) out of 21.

          1. How do you know he’s not DEA F.A.S.T.?

            1. Is it wrong to root for the brown guys?

          2. Also 17/21. I found my best strategy was ignoring service arms and instead focusing on the subject (youth + fitness = military, age + fatass = Cop) and also focusing on the setting and looking for clues that would indicate first world vs. third world.

            1. I looked for noob tubes.

            2. That’s how I played it and only 15/21.

            3. helmet camoflage or lack thereof was a big tell for me. You never see bare Kevlar in the Army or the Marines.

              1. That was the best indicator for me.

            4. i did it your way, 16/21

              also, some of the cop shots had blurred out insignias

      2. Just shared on FB. 16/21, but most were lucky guesses.

      3. “I hope it scares the shit out of them.”

        Good luck with that. Most of the people I work with would probably be in favor of the militarization of police.

    2. “Church-affiliated schools and hospitals will not have to provide contraception under Obamacare.”

      The newsworthy part of that story is that church-run schools and charities will have to provide contraception, sterilization and some abortion-causing drugs for employees.

      The religious exception is a joke – it only applies to those parts of the church which service their own members. If they provide service to non-members, they aren’t considered religious.

      So if a Lutheran church has a food pantry which serves people without regard to religion, then that’s not religious and is subject to the edict.

      And a Catholic-run school also has to obey the edict.

      This isn’t tied to government aid so far as I can tell.

      The matter is being fought in court:

      http://www.becketfund.org/obam…..g-mandate/

      1. Didn’t mean to attach this to the cop/soldier test (which I didn’t do well at)

    3. I only got 13/21. Other than being able to recognize a few weapons cops don’t use, or seeing women or badges, it’s very difficult to tell.

    4. 13/21 and honestly confused as to whether one should be desirous of a higher score, or a lower one.

    5. 15/21 the easiest one by far is the dude checking his make up in his mirror. and people wonder why libertarians say cops like to play army man dress-up

      1. yup. all those fat old guys around him… no way are those dudes grunts in the army. they’re earning a ton of money arresting black guys smoking pot here at home!

    6. 17 of 21 . . missed a stretch of three in a row in the middle that I guessed Soldier instead of Cop

    7. Ouch, just 14. Good link, though.

  7. I had a dream one night that the tree had lost its middle so I built a trunk of chicken wire to try to hold it up but the wire, the wire turned to lizard skin and when I climbed inside there wasn’t even time to say goodbye to Newty G so whistle as the wind blows; whistle as the wind blows with me.

  8. South Carolina is dead to me. Newt Gingrich is bigger big government than anyone else in the race, you fools.

    1. Gingrich stands for American values like uniting Team Red.

      1. Team Red doesn’t have any women? I can’t believe he’s at all palatable to any woman.

        1. If something is unpalatable, sometimes you just swallow it to get the taste out of your mouth.

          1. In this case, it would not be bad manners at all to spit instead.

          2. Joe M, have your boyfriend eat more parsley

    2. So you won’t be visiting? Oh well. Shouldn’t all 50 states be dead to you based on who they vote for?

      1. Pretty much everyone is dead to me. But this will be the worst thing that has ever happened in South Carolina, and my mother died vacationing in South Carolina. That’s what I think of voting for Newt Gingrich.

        1. my mother is in SC right now, and she’s gonna vote gingrich.

          so, that’s like dying, to me.

  9. “The day will come when the senators who forced this move will look back and realize they made a knee-jerk reaction to a monumental problem,” he added. “Somewhere in China today, in Russia today, and in many other countries that do not respect American intellectual property, criminals who do nothing but peddle in counterfeit products and stolen American content are smugly watching how the United States Senate decided it was not even worth debating how to stop the overseas criminals from draining our economy.”

    Yellow Peril! Dey’re terkin’ ur jerbs!

    1. RRR TRK RRRJRRBZZ!

    2. Avatar made $1Billion dollars world wide. $1Billion dollars for people to watch a 3d version of Fern Gully! Fuck me sideways how is any of this draining our economy?

      1. Cameron would have had 2 billion dollars if it wasn’t for the piracy of the intertubes.

    3. I thought of air. I’m gonna copyright that and charge everyone for breathing my air!

  10. The statement read: “The agency’s investigation has concluded that no discernible defect trend exists and that the vehicle modifications recently developed by General Motors reduce the potential for battery intrusion resulting from side impacts.

    There is no defect, besides which we modified our car to reduce the defect.

    1. It’s not discernible. When the hood is down you can’t even tell.

    2. Uh, HELLO! This is merely evidence of the application Value Engineering and Continuous Improvement processes and tools to deliver Leading Edge technology in response to The Voice of the Customer, and provides further evidence of The General’s? devotion to Lean Manufacturing and Just-In-Time product evolution.

      /fuck GM

      1. I’m sure a kaizen will clear the problem right up.

        1. I was thinking more along the lines of ritual Seppuku

  11. The Hamtramck plant has been on an extended holiday shutdown but will resume production Feb. 1, said GM spokesman Greg Martin.

    Those VOLTs aren’t exactly flying out of the showrooms, are they?

    1. Yeah, interesting. Seeing as how every other plant of the Former Big is working balls to the wall to meet customer demand (which outstrips current collective North American production capacity).

      But Hamtramck? Not so much. Weird!

      PS Speaking of Hamtramck, cannot WAIT for paczki day! Mmmm, 7 billion-calorie doughnut thingies! Thanks, Pollacks!

      1. Speaking of “derp” – ‘Former Big’ = ‘Former Big THREE’ this evening.

        That is all.

      2. Interesting what happens when you make business decisions based on political objectives.

    2. Why would anyone want to buy a Prius, much less GM’s knockoff version of a Prius?

  12. criminals who do nothing but peddle in counterfeit products and stolen American content are smugly watching how the United States Senate decided it was not even worth debating how to stop the overseas criminals from draining our economy.”

    Jesus, dude, try the decaf.

  13. I like how Romney’s victory in NH meant nothing because he held office in a neighboring state, but somehow a victory for a former GA congressman in SC would be a tide-turner.

    1. He’s a not-Romney.

      1. Either that or the media is like the hot dog selling guy who prays that the Series goes 7 games.

    2. Hey, just because we’re a bunch of superstitious, Bible-thumping rednecks, doesn’t mean we don’t take our responsibility to elect the next Christian collectivist seriously.

    3. I like how Romney’s victory in NH meant nothing because he held office in a neighboring state

      I don’t get that. Politically and culturally, NH and MA are as different as night and day.

      1. I do…

        You must understand, MA vacilates between electing technocrats, kooky progressives and corrupt machine politicians.

        Much of New Hampshire’s commerce with the rest of the world is with or goes through MA, so they are heavily impacted by MA politicians.

        The technocrats, being the least annoying, are relatively well regarded by people in NH.

        Also, New Englanders have a tradition of trying to promote incompetents to Federal office to get them out from underfoot.

        1. It worked with Lieberman!

        2. Also, New Englanders have a tradition of trying to promote incompetents to Federal office to get them out from underfoot.

          It’s not just New England’s tic. Washington does it all the time.

        3. The technocrats, being the least annoying, are relatively well regarded by people in NH.

          Yeah, I can see that. Especially given that the Sununus are the very definition of technocrats.

  14. As much as I detest Gingrich, I don’t mind him beating that jackass Romney in a few primaries. If the GOP voters in SC have any sense they’ll forget both of these false conservatives and pick a true one (Ron Paul).

    1. They’re real conservatives. Their beliefs line up nicely with a majority of conservative voters and politicians.

    2. open primary so any dipshit is free to vote in the gop primary. i hope we all(dipshits) vote for paul.

  15. The federal safety investigation into post-crash fires in Chevrolet Volt batteries formally closed today.

    Electric cars actually crash? I thought that when electric cars crashed, the spawned a signularity of goodness?

  16. Erin Burnett is(was) interviewing Newt Kuan Yew; I lasted about 90 seconds, and don’t ask me why I turned it on.

    Apparently, that mean question about his wife “humanized” the would-be Great White Father and all-purpose benevolent dictator, and made him more “sympathetic’ and relatable.

    So we’ve got that going for us.

    1. She needs to do a track with Hikakin.

      1. That dude is awesome!

  17. Strict Code of Silence:

    http://www.reuters.com/article…..CI20120119

    1. If it’s on Facebook, it’s secret.

  18. “Church-affiliated schools and hospitals will not have to provide contraception under Obamacare.”

    The newsworthy part of that story is that church-run schools and charities will have to provide contraception, sterilization and some abortion-causing drugs for employees.

    The religious exception is a joke – it only applies to those parts of the church which service their own members. If they provide service to non-members, they aren’t considered religious.

    So if a Lutheran church has a food pantry which serves people without regard to religion, then that’s not religious and is subject to the edict.

  19. Smith is withdrawing SOPA supposedly.

    Of course, the same guy authored this same piece of garbage legislation:

    http://www.theatlantic.com/pol…..od/242853/

    If you can’t pass it to look tough on crime like Internet piracy or to save “jobs” then claim it’s for the children.

    1. I wonder if anybody thinks there’s a chance that they’ll pull a MADD and tack the key bits onto some appropriations bill…

      1. They would NEVER do such a thing!!

        How dare you say that about our betters?

  20. From Volokh.com: If an official in a Democratic scandal is about to take the Fifth, does it make a sound in the MSM?

    http://volokh.com/2012/01/20/s…..years-ago/

  21. Feds end investigation of Chevy Volt.

    “The car is crap. Continue with the subsidies, nothing to see here.”

  22. Double-dose of HuffPo stoopid:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/…..o&ir=Yahoo

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/…..19035.html

    I puked just reading the first paragraph of each one. Let’s see who can make it all the way through both columns.

    1. Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to expressly exclude for-profit corporations from the rights given to natural persons by the Constitution of the United States, prohibit corporate spending in all elections, and affirm the authority of Congress and the States to regulate corporations and to regulate and set limits on all election contributions and expenditures.

      Of course, the state would NEVER abuse its power to determine who may, and more importantly, who may not, spend money on an election.

      17th Amendment = Mistake.

  23. “The amendment would establish that constitutional rights belong to real people, not for-profit corporations. The amendment would prohibit corporations from making election-related expenditures. It would clarify that Congress and states have the power to regulate campaign spending, overturning the doctrine that election contributions and expenditures constitute First Amendment-protected speech and therefore may be subject only to limited restrictions. And it would affirm that nothing in the amendment limits freedom of press.”

    Except that everything in the amendment logically limits freedom of the press. Every article, story, editorial by CNN, Fox News, the New York Times, Reason Magazine et al can be considered a campaign exenditure if the Citizens United documenary can. The only way it does not is by setting arbitrary distinctions between what activities and corporations constitute “legitimate” press.

    “If the question is on breaking up huge banks, for example, every member of the Senate and the House, in the back of their minds, will ask themselves what the personal price would be for taking on Wall Street. Am I going to be punished?”

    If enduring potentially harsh criticism on a issue before Congress is punishment, then yes of course, a legislator should be worried about being “punished” for any decision on any controversial issue. Exactly why should the people represented by the term “Wall Street” have limited rights to defend their interests against government intrusion? Besides Bernie Sanders being a Socialist and hating private business as matter of course?

    1. Scared of criticism?

      What’s the matter, Bernie Sanders – chicken?

      1. And by the Huffingtonpost posting his article, did not Senator Sanders just receive a political donation from a corporate entity?

    2. There is no form of punishment more cruel and unusual than petitioning the government for redress of grievances.

  24. I love how bacon is the foundation of everything.

    1. I rencenty received a microwave bacon cooker and while that may sound sagrelig to some it works pretty good. In less than two minutes I can have a couple of slices of good crispy bacon so pretty much everthing I make gets bacon now. I still cook it slow in a frying pan on the weekends for breakfast but if I’m just making a sandwich or want to add something extra to a dish it’s awesome.

  25. Why does reason keep putting up that picture of Joh Wayne Gacy?

  26. Ron Paul and his supporters are like those morons who went around saying the world was going to end last year and after it didn’t no one cared and they faded into obscurity. When America eventually recovers from the recession completely and we don’t go bankrupt and the UN doesn’t control the USD then people will laugh and say “Remember that idiot Ron Paul? lol Those fucking people were crazy”

      “When America eventually recovers from the recession…” That’s how the game is played, right? You claim you will fix the economy, do a bunch of dumb stuff that actually retards the recovery, and then when the economy “eventually” recovers…you get to claim the credit! Post hoc, ergo procter hoc.

      And yeah…I’d say when you are at the point where you are printing money and loaning it to yourself to stay afloat…you might be in some trouble.

    2. When America eventually recovers from the recession completely

      We never completely recovered from the 2001 recession–what makes you think we’re going to completely recover from this one?

      and we don’t go bankrupt

      So we’re NOT $15 trillion in the hole? Quelle surprise!

      and the UN doesn’t control the USD

      Your coffeehouse credentials are showing.

    3. Cool story, bro.

  27. Add some horns to that Newt photo and you have it about right. That is amazingly unflattering (but well-deserved, from what I have seen over the past several decades).

    1. I was thinking clown paint
