It's not just you: Facebook envy makes people miserable, studies show
Fri Jan 25, 2013
I have been saying this since FB launched and I witnessed people's characters change - always for the worse. Both more unpleasant, rude and impatient, and incredibly aggressive, mentally unstable and insecure. I find this trait to be universal, not governed by age. You see formerly respectable women …
Fat-shaming may curb obesity, bioethicist says
Thu Jan 24, 2013
FInally, someone gets it. My time in the USA (1991-2000) taught me that while nice people, Americans appeared to have little discipline or self respect when it came to things that we Brits would feel ashamed of, from talking loudly in public to being ridiculously overweight. Sadly today, Britain is …
Craigslist case: California couple shot while trying to sell iPhone
Wed Dec 19, 2012
As a Brit who has lived and travelled in the US for 10 years, it is interesting to note that crimes like this occur in cities or states with a liberal bent, no pun intended. It is just the same here in the UK. I visited Chicago in March (unaware of it's reputation for crime - other than political!) …

10 foods that can wreck your mood
Sun Dec 16, 2012
Speaking from a UK angle, (hi from wet and windy England!) I am not sure how people are educated in the US or elsewhere today (I'm in my late 40s), but I was taught the basics of nutrition through a combination of biology and chemistry classes, and so could draw all of the above conclusions - except …
Cops: Mom, tot die after frantic 911 call from sinking car
Fri Nov 16, 2012
Good idea. Like the ones they have in railway trains here in the UK. I imagine that in cars with central locking (most if not all today!), soon as the car electrics are shorted, the locks are inoperable. It should be law that if you manually pull up the lock on the door that it overrides the failed …
Taiwanese ships clash with Japanese coast guard over disputed islands
Tue Sep 25, 2012
The guy is a narcissist and whilst I don't doubt his intelligence, if he lacks comprehension of the dangers facing the free West, he's going to be responsible for WW3/4.
9/11 memorial to cost $60 million a year to operate
Sun Sep 9, 2012
It should be totally self funded. IE, visitors get in free, but like Museums, there are donation boxes, allowing those who can afford to donate to do so. For a memorial to get MORE money than a national park that preserves wildlife and provides an outlet for educators is outrageous because it let's …
Families of victims of theater shooting in Colorado slam relief fund
Tue Aug 28, 2012
As per another comment (perhaps there are many more?), why does money even come into the equation? Here in England, (which is sadly picking up some of the less ethical aspects of US culture so this is probably not going to last), we don't start discussing or asking for money when tragedy strikes. Le …
