Dioxin Homepage: "How are we exposed to dioxin?"

"The major sources of dioxin are in our diet. Since dioxin is fat-soluble, it bioaccumulates -- climbing up the food chain and it is mainly (97.5%) found in meat and dairy products (beef, dairy products, milk, chicken, pork, fish and eggs in that order... see chart below). In fish alone, these toxins bioaccumulate up the food chain so that dioxin levels in fish are 100,000 times that of the surrounding environment. The best way to avoid dioxin exposure is to reduce or eliminate your consumption of meat and dairy products by adopting a vegan diet. According to a May 2001 study of dioxin in foods, "The category with the lowest [dioxin] level was a simulated vegan diet, with 0.09 ppt.... Blood dioxin levels in pure vegans have also been found to be very low in comparison with the general population, indicating a lower contribution of these foods to human dioxin body burden."


Does dioxin cause cancer?
Yes. The EPA report confirmed that dioxin is a cancer hazard to people. In 1997, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) -- part of the World Health Organization -- published their research into dioxins and furans and announced on February 14, 1997, that the most potent dioxin, 2,3,7,8-TCDD, is a now considered a Class 1 carcinogen, meaning a "known human carcinogen" (source: IARC Monographs, Volume 69).

Also, in January 2001, the U.S. National Toxicology Program upgraded 2,3,7,8-TCDD from "Reasonably Anticipated to be a Human Carcinogen" to "Known to be a Human Carcinogen." See their reports on dioxins and furans from their most recent 10th Report on Carcinogens. Finally, a 2003 re-analysis of the cancer risk from dioxin reaffirmed that there is no known "safe dose" or "threshold" below which dioxin will not cause cancer.

Yahoo! News - Microsoft Gives $1 Bln for Computer Help:

I was appalled when I saw this! Imagine, M$ the Evil Empire giving CASH to HELP nonot just some random retarded kids but the U.N Development Program. How dare they help the world! It must be some kind of tricky scheme to try to get the public to like them instead of unix or linux or OSX.

""The scale of the program we have here is quite unusual in terms of corporate giving. It's $1 billion over five years and that represents both cash and software," "

I knew it! They are forcing their software on the United Nations. Could this be the beginning of a new war? I doubt it. The U.N would run and hide at the first shot fired. Luckily for them Gates is just buying them out.

"The United Nations will work with the Microsoft Unlimited Potential program to invest in community centers in poor regions where people can learn how to use personal computers and enhance their job prospects."

Watch out everyone! M$ is spreading like cancer. Infiltrating the hearts and minds of the young and old alike. Getting them hooked on M$. Linux should quit now. All you mac lover's out there should jump off a cliff and save yourselves!

No respect.

Sometimes I wonder what the hell is not going through people's minds. I say that because obviously they don't think before the say or act so clearly there is nothing going through their heads.

Last night went from peaceful to chaotic to long in about a 1min timespan at about 3am.

I woke up to the sound of my lower neighbor asking quite loudly "are you pissing on my car?". Now, when you wake up from a deep slumber to a question like that you have to ask yourself if you are still sleeping.

I quickly come to my senses and imagine that he's speaking to some passers-by. This particular neighbor has an excellent view of the alley where I park my bike and my GF usually parks her car. So I begin to think that maybe he's talking to some guys in the alley.

Long story short, the upstairs corner neighbors who overlook the alley way were having a party. Two morons decided it would be a good idea to not only piss over the balcony onto my neighbors car, but to also throw up on it. WTF? I was surprised he didn't go out there and beat the living hell out of whoever it was that was doing it.

So the cops came, and made those neighbors wash the car!

I love justice

Here;s some interesting "facts" about sex for you'z :

1. Sex is a beauty treatment. Scientific tests find that when women make
love they produce amounts of the hormone estrogen, which makes hair shine
and skin smooth.

2. Gentle, relaxed lovemaking reduces your chances of suffering dermatitis,
skin rashes and blemishes. The sweat produced cleanses the pores and makes
your skin glow.

3. Lovemaking can burn up those calories you piled on during that romantic
dinner.

4. Sex is one of the safest sports you can take up. It stretches and tones
up just about every muscle in the body. It's more enjoyable than swimming 20
laps, and you don't need special sneakers!

5. Sex is an instant cure for mild depression. It releases endorphins into
the bloodstream, producing a sense of euphoria and leaving you with a
feeling of well-being.

6. The more sex you have, the more you will be offered. The sexually active
body gives off greater quantities of chemicals called pheromones.. These
subtle sex perfumes drive the opposite sex crazy!
-- This would make sense. I guess. So, basically people are attracted to "slutty" people (so long as they don't LOOK slutty).

7. Sex is the safest tranquilizer in the world. IT IS 10 TIMES MORE
EFFECTIVE THAN VALIUM.

8. Kissing each day will keep the dentist away. Kissing encourages saliva to
wash food from the teeth and lowers the level of the acid that causes decay,
preventing plaque build-up.

9. Sex actually relieves headaches. A lovemaking session can release the
tension that restricts blood vessels in the brain.

10. A lot of lovemaking can unblock a stuffy nose. Sex is a natural
antihistamine. It can help combat asthma and hay fever.

Tongue Tied: "Will be Judged Not by the Color of Their Skin, but by the Content of Their Character"

Wow this is "reverse" racism and some sick and twisted form of PC at it's finest.

- A group of high school students in Omaha, Neb. who nominated a South African student for a “Distinguished African-American Student” award were disciplined for what was described by administrators as an “inappropriate and insensitive” act

- Administrators at Westside High School said the award should only go to a black student

- A student who later circulated a petition complaining about the racism inherent in that policy also was punished by the school.

Hm, I guess being South African isn't African enough. Maybe being Black-American makes you more African? It appears the school really wants to nominate a BLACK student for distinguised BLACK student award.

fgn wrong.

abc7.com: Murder, Kidnapping & Rape Suspect Arrested: "Murder, Kidnapping & Rape Suspect Arrested"

This seems a little more important than the Jackson trial. I never understood why somone like M. Jackson who has never been proven guilty and has a history of people filing lawsuits for anything they can think of against him, has to waste his time in court and embarassment on international TV.

I think our DA and police forces should focus more on protecting the "real" community and stop chasing a sick fantasy that M. Jackson is sucking off little boys.

What's my name again?




Yahoo! News - Dean Jokes About 'Screeching' in Iowa: "His performance has been widely lampooned on the Internet, and late-night talk shows, but it could also be a serious problem for his campaign, reinforcing his image among some as an 'angry' candidate who does not have the temperament to be president. "

No surprise. This guy is such a fgn tard. How do people like this even make it into politics? Oh that's right... politicians are scum that lie and cheat their way to the top.. well that makes much more sense.

""I have my warts. I sometimes say things that get me in trouble,"

I bet he does. Maybe he should stop bangin' two dollar whores on the side. We'll never know the truth to that, since the "honest" man won't unseal his records.

Alright I hate traffic lights!

This morning I planned on being very productive. I got up early. I spent some quality time with my 1 yr old cat. I went to Trader Joe's, Ralph's, and the Library and even the gas station.

Sounds great doesn't it? It wasn't. I think that my city is the only city in the whole of the United States that doesn't start it's day before 9am. That's right! Post Offices, Banks and even grocery stores do not open before 9am! At first I thought maybe it was just a few stores... but today I found out that it's in-fact EVERYONE. So even though I was out of the house at 8:30, I had to wait around for the City to wake up!

What is the deal with stoplights? Out of 13 or 14 stoplights I think every single one of them turned red when I reached them. Because this happens to me all the time, I have determined that I spend approximately 20-30 minutes at stoplights every day. My commute is only 12 miles. I guess I'm lucky I don't spend 4 hours on the fwy trying to go 4 miles, huh?

I'm moving.

Because I ship out March 09, I have to move out of my apartment this month. I will save exactly 1095.00 in rent. I'M RICH!! What to buy what to buy? Figuring it would take at least a week to pack I began tonight. So my entire living room was packed up in about 30min.

I don't know if that's good or bad.

Armor at StrategyPage.com's

I thought this was pretty cool.

"American trucks move thousands of tons of material along Iraqi roads each day. Most of it is moved by troops who do this regularly. These troops receive training before they are assigned to convoy duty, and are briefed before the convoy moves out. On any day, only a few percent of the convoys out there will encounter any hostile behavior (usually rocks thrown at them.) Actual ambushes are rare, and the combat troops and MPs are always looking for roadside bombs and armed Iraqis trying to set up an ambush. Most of the roadside bombs and ambushes are discovered this way, and neutralized. But it's only because of these careful preparations that the American casualty count has been kept so low. The Iraqi attackers suffer far more casualties. American intelligence knows this because they monitor the fees the attackers are often paid to make these attacks. Week by week, Iraqis demand, and get, higher fees for attacking American convoys. It's a risky business, and American troops want to keep it that way."

Block your ears to hear better on Japan's new bone phone

OMFG So my roommate gets a new phone, the new state of the art phone from Sprint PCS, camera, video, LEDs, flash, zoom, and I THINK that it has missiles and an oil slick...either that or he had the Hershey Squirts the other evening....but anyhow, his phone just came out, it's the best and newest on the US market (I suppose). So that's where we are with mobile phones in the US while the effing Japs (STFU, I am not predjudiced and/or bigoted, lighten up) have a phone that you can listen to by having it vibrate in your effing skull! Good thing they are our friends, jeezus man, we need to get our act together.

Just an idea, since it is so PC and "necessary" for us to have illegals in our country working, why don't we stop all the Mexicans that are coming up, pay an extra $0.50 per week to have our lawn cut and cars washed, and start importing some smart ass illegal Japs that can build US some crazy ass gizmos like the "bone phone"? If I was in charge I'd look into doing that. Heh.

OpinionJournal - Outside the Box

Well, it would appear things really aren't as bleak as the liberals would have us believe.

"Optimists have turned out to be fully correct; pessimists alarmingly misguided:" -- seriously!

Here are a few highlights for those of you too lazy to read.

Life expectancy in America has increased ...

Incomes are up. Inflation-adjusted per capita income has doubled since 1960. And we're working less for more money. -- I can attest to that!

Poverty is down. Twenty-two percent of Americans lived in poverty in 1960; by 2001 that rate had declined to 11.7%

We are not running out of any resource--oil, natural gas, copper, aluminum or anything else. Pollution is down; today's new cars emit "less than 2% as much pollution per mile as a car of 1970."

The goods available to us are overwhelming, and getting cheaper all the time

All this progress is not just in America or wealthy nations. Middle-class men and women in Europe and America live better than 99.4% of humans who have ever lived

"Rather than nasty, brutish and short, 21st century life is good, comfortable and long, and getting better all the time.
"


Give it a read you won't be disappointed and it might keep you from pulling that trigger tonight.

My apple has a yeast infection.

wtf! I went to Ralph's during lunch today. That's right, I went against the union and bought my apple from some SCABS! Anyway, maybe that's why it has a yeast infection. I like to eat apples all day long. They are the perfect snack. SO I have been sitting here looking forward to eating my apple and when I finally pulled it out of the bag I decided to wash it.

So I'm washing the apple and it freakin' starts to get all gooey on me. I'm looking at this thing in utter disgust. At first I thought maybe there was some kind of gel on it. But I kept washing it thinking it would go away. It didn't! I dried it off and then the gooey gel stuff hardened into a crust. What the heck! No way was I going to eat it.

Now I am without an apple. Maybe that was the plan of the Union. To teach me the unsuspecting SCAB supporter a lesson?

First of all, I own you. Yes, my nickname is so killer that you cannot even step up to it. (Well, yes, partly because it IS poop on a stick and, well, poop is smelly and kind of gross. *shrug*) Second of all, well, let me just get it out there now and say that John Kerry is a terd, Jimmy...errr...Steven....errr....Jimmmy Dean (or whatever his name is) is a crazy psycho, and basically, teh Dems have no candidate.

Do everyone a favor, read Ayn Rand and start infecting the minds of the youth (14-19 is prim age IMO) with the Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, Anthem may be a good primer. Ummm.....I think that's all I am going to rant about right now. Other than that, I think I will start typing "teh" instead of "the" because that's how I type anyhow more often than not. Guess I should learn to type with hands on Home Row, etc...blahblahblah. Poop on a stick.

I'm a thief.

Today I had to go to the hardware store during lunch to pick up a few items. I had limited time. I decided to go to Home Depot. I needed two 1/4" bolts and 2 1/4" wingnuts. Found them easily enough. I double checked the size of the wingnuts because they were in a plastic package. They cost .78 each. The bolts cost .07 each. I made it to a checkout stand easily enough as well. No line. I was rung up for 1.83. Ok.. so i just paid almost 2 dollars for about 1oz of metal. great!

I go outside to my awaiting elective blue '03 R6 motorcycle, because that is my primary means of transportation. No complaints. I pull out my license plate and proceed to use the bolts and wingnuts to attach to the rear of the bike.

WTF?! The wingnuts are the wrong size and don't fit the bolts! I wasted 1.56 on two stupid wingnuts that don't even fit the bolts! Fine. I go back inside and find two 1/4" nuts that I can physically be sure will fit on the 1/4" bolts I have. Now there is a HUGE line at the checkstand AND there some crazy crate mover machine blocking the main aisle! The nuts I hold in my hand have a combined grande value of .04. So I walked out of the store with the small pieces of metal (yes I just avoided saying "my nuts in my hand") without paying for them. I felt like I was jipped out of a 1.56 on wingnuts that didn't even fit! I had a right to walk out of there. PLus the hassle at the checkstand was a waste of time..

Should I go to jail?

Got this in email today:


What Kind Of Man Would Do Such A Thing?

At Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington DC recently the Sergeant
Major of the Army, Jack Tilley, was with a group of people visiting the wounded soldiers. He saw a Special Forces soldier who had lost his right hand and suffered severe wounds of his face and side of his body.

The SMA wanted to honor him and show him respect without offending, but what can you say or do in such a situation that will encourage and uplift?

How do you shake the right hand of a soldier who has none? He decided to
act as though the hand was not missing and gripped the soldiers wrist while
speaking words of comfort and encouragement to him.

But there was another man in that group of visitors who had even brought
his wife with him to visit the wounded who knew exactly what to do. This man
reverently took the soldiers stump of a hand in both of his hands, bowed
at the bedside and prayed for him. When he finished the prayer he stood up, bent over the soldier and kissed him on the head and told him that he loved him. What a powerful expression of love
for one of our wounded heroes! And what a beautiful Christ-like example!

What kind of a man would do such a thing?

It was the wounded man's Commander-in-Chief, George W. Bush; President of
the United States.


This story was told by the SMA at a Soldiers Breakfast held at Redstone
Arsenal, AL, and recorded by Chaplain James Henderson, stationed there.

Pass it on... the press won't.

Tuesday, January 20, 2004



"I think there's just two different worlds here, the world the president talks about and the world Americans are living in," Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites), who won Monday's Iowa caucuses, said on NBC.

"While CEO pay is up and Wall Street profits are up, the average American only earned three cents on the dollar more. Workers are hurting all across America," Kerry said. "

I'm an average "hard working" American and I don't have a problem with jobs. None of my average "hard working" American friends have a problem with jobs and in-fact every single person I know has a job. SO who the hell is Kerry talking about, exactly?

The world Americans live in is out of control and we are just trying to regain some control. Unfortunately a poor education system and MTV are rotting us from the inside out! Liberals try to tell us we are all victims and that we are entitled to govt handouts and charity. How about putting some of the responsibility on the Citizens? Samuel Adams is rolling in his grave. If he was alive today he'd up and leave and start a new republic because this one is too disgusting for him.

"Clark said Bush will "spend billions on the war in Iraq, missile defense, and sending a man to Mars. But he's going to spend a grand total of $120 million for job training. That's just $15 for each unemployed American. That's not much more than the cost of bus fare to the training center, lunch, and coffee."

I don't recall needing the govt to train me for a job. If I remember correctly I am, as a citizen, responsible for attending PUBLIC and FREE schools and at some point picking a profession and or going to college. Hell, I can even choose to work at McDonalds and pretend im a high rollin' playa by spending my entire paycheck on Prada.

WTF do liberals think that everyone is a helpless self-hating pile of shit? I'm incredibly insulted by these guys and frankly I would prefer that Bush spends MY tax money on kicking terrorist ass and securing american interests along with stabilizing the world (to the best of our ability) than paying for job training for some idiot on the street that failed every public school course he ever attended because he was either too lazy, or too cool to attend and pay some attention.

Also, after the State of the Union speech I think it would have been prudent for Kerry to say "Thank you President Bush" or "Congratulations" or "Way to go!". No, he had to talk a whole bunch of smack about how negative our country is and how everything is just WRONG WRONG and nothing is right. He should kill himself, I don't see how this guy can make it through a single day.

The squabling between the parties is so irritating and counter productive. These two groups are designed to compliment eachother and fill in where the other cannot.

Bush has my vote you liberal bitches!

EE Times - Lie-detector glasses offer peek at future of security -- This article scares the crap outta me.

"Besides lie detection, Watson said, the technology "can also measure for other emotions like anxiety, fear or even love." Indeed V Entertainment offers Pocket PC "love detector" software that can attach to a phone line or work from recorded tapes. It's available for download at www.v-entertainment.com. Instead of color-coded LEDs, a bar graph on the display indicates how much the caller to whom you are speaking "loves" you. V Entertainment claims the love detector has demonstrated 96 percent accuracy. A PC version is due next month. "

There are so many reasons why this is just downright horrific. Imagine that you are having a bad day and you FEEL like you want to kill the next person that says something lame to you. So some curious cop asks you if you plan on doing soemthing crazy and you say "no". According to the emotion and tensity in your voice, you do in fact plan on doing something. See ya later.

This reminds me of that one movie with Tom Cruise, Minority Report.

Now on to the "love detector" crap. So you put these babies on and ask your wife if she loves you.. or vice versa. Or maybe you can ask your dog?
