Coffee helps prevent prostate cancer

If you haven't heard, then check out the article covering the study:

So why is this a post and not a cool Stumbledupon link at the side of my blog?

Because, accd. to the article, "drinking six or more cups of coffee per day can lower a man's risk of fatal prostate cancer by up to 60 percent."

Sure, it's just an association. I'm no sucker for correlations.

But I like coffee anyways, so I'm at least going to psych myself into thinking this works (for a combined coffee + quasi-placebo effect).

Thank you, coffee.

And finally, Word of Wisdom correlated to prostate cancer? just saying.

That is all.

(Also, now that I have time, I'll get started on the NT challenge soon. But not too soon, because vacation is coming up. And I'm suffering from what I call Agnostic Apathy, though I'm still really interested in breaking down the BoM into separate parts through a program and etc.)

The "Deep South" Response to Obama's speech

"I don't know why he's taking any credit, Obama was wanting to take troops out of Afghanistan! We never would've found him."


"How much did he meet with the Joint Chief of Staff? And the commander in Afghanistan? Only once, and a long time ago. He deserves no credit."

Dear Jesus...

"Obama sure can pronounce those Muslim words pretty well. Hmmm."


And then, a birther showed up.

She said: "I'm going to do what I always do when presented with facts: deny them."

Oops, misquoted a bit there.

Anyways. GO AMERICA!!! (and did anyone else catch how Adolph Hitler's death was announced in 1945 on the same day too? Wow.)
