No word on why people are trying to smoke cell phones, but be that as it may, a leading cancer specialist has compiled data over a ten year period that implicate cell phone useas an idex for probable brain cancer: prolific cell phone use appears to double the risk.
Cell providers pan the study, and with some justification: over the period of time in question, phones have grown smaller, use and emit less energy, and have become more versatile in the process. Using a cell phone today is as likely to involve sending a text message or taking a snapshot as it is to be used in a traditional phone handset manner.
Bottom line: no reliable data exist, because the field has been undergoing rapid change. The data from users of the brick-like phones of a decade ago cannot be reliably incorporated into the continuum of progressively smaller, less power-hungry and lower-emitting phones that have proliferated over the past five years.
We have no basis from which to conclude, firmly, that cell-phone use promotes tissue damage, and no data exist to show that use is completely benign.
Available data from other sources indicate that the study may be needlessly alarmist:
We've been flooded with increasing electromagnetic transimissions across an expanding set of wavelengths for over half a century, and during this time, the average lifespan for humans has increased. At the same time, humans not subjected to as much electromagnetic radiation, as in places such as Rwanda, have been slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands by dedicated Muslims - The Religion of Peace™ .
I'm thinking maybe we ought to consider giving those dedicated Muslims a few megawatts of electomagnetic radiation. It might do them - and the rest of the world - some good.
Debris consisting of up to two-thirds of the asteroid would have been hurled back along its route and a flash reaching temperatures of 400 Centigrade (752 Fahrenheit) would have been created, killing anyone in its path.
Or anything, one might suspect.
The finding raises interesting questions, at least for Christians. Did God smite Sodom and Gomorrah in retaliation for their sexual fixations? Or was this merely a Tunguskaincident that randomly happened to stike the cities in this unfortunate valley?
If this was an incident from the hand of God, would He not have spared the valley, and targeted instead only the cities?
In an amusing aside, new reports have been emerging regarding the tendency of The Little Missus to stiff the little folks. You may remember some of the other incidents, but this one's a hoot: she stiffed her own high school to the tune of $3,161! Of course, once word got out, the Billary campaign, currently some $8.7 million in the red, found a way to scrape up some cash. They report that they paid her high school today. That's some heavy Democrat fiscal responsibility for you.
Hey, Mrs. Clinton, here's the deal: get out of the president race, and we might get you moved in as governor of New York. While Bill rejects the idea, Dems are pushing it as a way to end the chaos that is currently imploding the Democrat Potty, and The Little Missus is now said to be open to discussing the idea.
She may have figured out that she's not going to be President.
Is the news coming out of Tibet going to impact your decision to tune in, or tune out? Should US teams even participate?
Does any of this affect your purchase patterns? Some folks avoid to the greatest extent possible buying anything made in China. Others figure that the best way to affect the country is by making them aware of the ways that our purchase decisions may impact their economy.
Hosting the Olympics is a big deal for them. Is it better to participate - or to boycott?
Heavy involvement in the drug trade has made the unassumingly-named Drew Street in Los Angeles one of the most notorious in in the city. Shootouts aren't uncommon. And why? Two word: illegal aliens.
An illegal immigrant and mother of 13, Leon has a lengthy arrest record and three convictions for drug-related crimes. The Leons -- and members of several other immigrant families on Drew Street whom authorities have charged with criminal acts -- hail from the town of Tlalchapa in the state of Guerrero, which has a reputation as one of Mexico's most violent regions. Police estimate that dozens of members of these extended families belong to the Avenues gang.
"It's been a safety net for them to rely on each other -- brothers, cousins and all," said LAPD Lt. Robert Lopez. "The likelihood of someone within your family ratting you out is really low."
Anybody who claims that illegal aliens aren't a problem is a complete moron.
Of course, Americans need to enable illegal aliens, otherwise, you might be called a "racist" or other bad names. After all, you don't know that they're here illegally, so you base your opposition to such centers strictly upon skin color. Therefore, you're a racist.
Daniel's kind of proven that such arguments are specious. Leftists try to demonize him, but I've been out to this site, with him, and Daniel's unfailingly polite to everyone he meets. In fact, he's so polite that illegal aliens willingly interact with him - on camera.
It's been difficult to track down, as Islamists have been threatening anybody who hosts the short video with death. Screw that. I don't give a rat's heinie about Islam or any other religion. What I do care about is the elimination of bloodthirsty butt-holes (who it seems generally happen to be Islamic).
The beauty of the Web is that if one place is censored, it's just damage that can be routed around.
Islamists may want to lead us back to the third century, but it ain't gonna happen.
