    ‘Eating cheese may harm man’s fertility – Young men who eat more than 3 slices of cheese a day may be risking their chances of becoming fathers, a new Harvard study has claimed. Researchers discovered that even small amounts of full-fat dairy food can impair fertility in men. They found that men who eat even three portions of cheese a day had poorer quality sperm compared to others. A portion includes 28 gms of cheese, a teaspoon of cream, a scoop of ice-cream or a glass of full-fat milk. Researchers believe that female hormones that occur naturally in milk may be interfering with men’s ability to reproduce. Scientists from the Harvard School of Public Health compared the diets of 189 men aged 19 to 25, all very fit and did atleast one and a half hours of exercise a week’.

      I realize I am WAY late to the party here, but: French husband. Five kids. Four of them born after I (and he) turned 35. You do the math.

  5. tommy says:

    My mom always told me to cut down on the cheese. Now I know why.

    Ohio poll by the Ohio Newspaper Organization has O and R tied at 49 each. An earlier poll conducted last month had O up 51-46.

      And that’s still not using a demo that is closer to what we’ll see, namely 2010 level turnout differences.

      • DM says:

        I don’t believe that 2012 will be like 2010. I think that Democrats will have a better turnout in 2012. I think the Democratic turnout will be lower than 2008, but higher than 2010. The Republicans will have a higher turnout than 2008, and 2010, a midterm election. With no good pattern, the pollsters have little choice but to use 2008 as the pattern for 2012.

        • trist says:

          isn’t the turnout always higher during the pres. election years though.
          I’ve heard reports that expect dem turnout to be on par with ’08. But I’ll believe it when I see it. Firstly, I don’t see a whole lot of newly registered voters who aren’t physically picked up and driven to the polls by team O actually showing up on the day. Hence their mad rush for early voting. And then I expect there’s a lot more of us ex-dems or even current card holders who they aren’t factoring in, just assuming we’re still in their column who will vote for him. Which will also greatly decrease their turnout numbers.

      I don’t like Obama. I think he’s the worst leader the U.S. has ever had. But I have a very difficult time believing that Panetta, a man who headed the CIA, generals and other advisors would shy away from helping Americans under attack. WIthout hard evidence, I will hold my judgment.

      • 49erDweet says:

        Ten years ago that would have been my impression, too, but IMO in the interim he’s sold his soul to the devil and should not now be trusted. His political allegiance has always been higher to the party than the nation, and those now giving him the benefit of not criticizing his loyalty are being naive.

  8. DandyTiger says:

    That other quote of Obama’s about him needing his team to “lean forward”. I was wondering where I heard that before, then I remembered. I think that’s what Henry VIII said to Anne Boleyn the last time he talked to her. Do you think we should warn Obama’s team? Nah, they’ll figure it out.

  9. tommy says:

    Obama changes campaign slogan from FORWARD to FORWARD! Thats really lame-ass stuff and just plain weird. Dude is definitely consulting an astrologist.

    • swanspirit says:

      Astrologers figured out long ago he was the liar from hell . They would not consult with him !

    • trist says:

      Obama’s already leading this country towards an economic cliff, and his slogan is FORWARD!
      I dunno, are lemmings in vogue this year or what?

      Lol! The exclamation mark makes me think of this scene from ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’:
      (Don’t know about the cyrillic subtitles though, heh.) 🙂

    Long time fan of this blog and of myiq from RD days. 🙂

    Here is an astrological prediction of the US 2012 elections. It will make you feel good.

    • threewickets says:

      As long as they’re speculating, they should get their numbers straight. They mean $43 billion, not trillion.

    7.7 earthquake off the west coast of Canada. Initial tsunami warnings, but seems to be all clear now. Some news here:

      I told my bro who’s a giants fan that the one had backed the tigers, clearly for votes. which equated to giving them the kiss of death, so I expected the giants to sweep. It’s looking like I should have made a bet with him on that! >_<

    Okay, so Frankenstorm is slamming into the midAtlantic/northeast during the next few days, affecting about 66 million people…..and Obama’s going to Disney World ?

    I was intrigued by the VA poll from Gravis that showed O and RR tied. No way, I thought. So this is what I found. The Gravis poll includes 22% Black and 63% White (the rest Hispanic, Asian, etc).
    http://www.gravispolls.com/2012/10/virginia-presidential-and-senate-poll.html

    The 2008 VA exit poll showed 20% Blacks and 70% white voters.
    http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/results/polls/#val=VAP00p1

    Gravis expects a higher Black turnout and a lower White turnout in 2012.

    This is bad sampling.

    The Republicans have Obama’s number. He’s got nothing. No accomplishments that are not awful, no ideas, no plans, and expected to be re-elected because he and his useless staff have not paid one lick of attention to what was going on outside of their echo chamber cheer leading staff in the White House and Chicago political shop. They are flopping spectacularly after slacking for four years.

    The entire scenario is bringing back memories for one old Bush I speechwriter. “One issue surpassed all others, President Bush said. “It’s called trust. When you get down to it, this election will be like every other. Trust matters!”

    “It was only over the next several days that we began to suspect that the theme wasn’t working. Voters already knew President Bush was an honorable man. They liked the other guy better anyway. As a campaign issue, “trust” seemed an evasion, deflecting a more serious criticism that was thrown at us hourly, by the press and by voters themselves, in focus groups and surveys. The president, it was said, had no agenda”

    “Again our campaign leapt into action. Frantic phone calls were placed to federal agencies and cabinet departments: Who’s got an agenda?.”
    ….”The agenda was strung together and packaged in a booklet with glossy blue covers. The president could hold it up at rallies, with a look that said: No agenda, eh? What do you call this, smart guy? Chopped liver? The word renewal was testing very well with focus groups—better than reform, even—so our booklet got called Agenda for American Renewal. Millions of copies were mailed to voters. Perhaps you still have yours?”

    “Any veteran of the ’92 presidential campaign has learned to identify marks of intellectual exhaustion. The déjà vu this year is especially creepy.”

      Never can get the youtube embedding right. Can somebody give me a quick lesson ?

    • NewOrleans says:

      Paste the YouTube link on a line by itself.

    • Pips says:

      What NewOrleans said:
      Copy the url at the top of the YouTube site.

      Go to the site where you want to embed and paste into the comment field.

      Don’t type in anything after the link.

      On a Mac you can open up two pages, then ‘grab’ the little icon in front of the url from one page and drag it into the comment field on the other page.

      And remember: If at first you don’t succeed, try and try and try again. 😉
