Intended or not, this is a sexist remark. And just because someone is not in a relationship does not necessarily mean there is no sex, for either men or women.

"It found that 42% of men and 44% of women had never had sex."

"The 2015 survey also found that seven-in-10 men were not in a relationship, while nearly six in 10 women were going to bed alone."

But the majority, otherwise you wouldn't have so much support for the NRA.

Come again? Roughly 1.5% of Americans support the NRA--and the 'come and take it' gun fondlers are a subset of that.

The thing is... all this is pointing to Martial Law. It also smells of stopping the US election process. The timing, the targets and the scale of attack are just not palatable.

This isn't a movie. Come back to reality.

A lot of people are not going to forget it and that will hurt her, how much is yet to be seen.

The only ones who won't forget that comment are Trump's "deplorables" (which is all of his base--not half).

Stab

verb: thrust a knife or other pointed weapon into (someone) so as to wound or kill.

noun: a thrust with a knife or other pointed weapon.

I'd say an awl is a pointed weapon.

day the guest was walking south on a wide boulevard - two lanes in both directions, separated by by trees. A woman approached. She crossed the street and walked past two streets. She crossed the boulevard, walked past one street light, the cross back to the original side. What is the meaning?

They had him on the TV and has a lot of bruising and contusions on his face that are not related to being lost. I hope these parents are investigated because it seems as though this kid has been abused

Citation?

The only images I've seen of him from today were him being unloaded from the helicopter (face not visible). No one else mentioned any of these bruises either; his doctor said he only had scratched arms and legs and a mild rash.

I disagree with this policy. Those offenders should just be kicked out of the restaurant whether or not they've finished their food,

But those offenders did agree to the policy; the read the rules before they sat down.

Then "toxicant".

I'm still right. Large fish and cetaceans are especially toxic--not small fish.

They are responsible for releasing toxins, but they are not toxins themselves

You think "poison" isn't a toxin? These words are synonymous. You think heavy metals are not toxins? If so, you are very, very confused. I'll grant you that toxins are leeched from plastics but you are just trying (and failing) to play word games at this point because you are simply wrong.

The irony of you saying someone is "making the scientific community cringe" is incredible. Also, the dictionary is your friend, friend.

Posted in: Japan’s demand for seafood declines, especially among young generation: report See in context

As a matter of fact, there was no mention of toxins in the first place.

As a matter of fact, this is completely false.

Please read the post that you attempted to correct.

Ok. Let's:

" the poisons, heavy metals and plastics in seafood, especially in smaller fish and cetaceans"

These are toxins. Do you understand now?

I will also point out that you are generalizing your use of the word "especially". Although a larger fish has more body mass and thus more cargo room to store toxins, this does not allow you to generalize larger fish as "especially" toxic.

I can't figure out if you're just trolling me at this point; it is fact that larger fish and cetaceans are especially toxic. If you can't understand the explanation I gave you about bioaccumulation and biomagnification, please try another source as I can't make it any simpler. It isn't a matter of having more body mass "to store toxins"--it is a matter of being at a higher trophic level, thereby consuming exponentially greater amounts of toxins than animals lower in the food chain.

I was willing to listen to any viable points you had to offer, but now I understand that you are only intent on defending your false correction. That is a shame.

The shame is that you are clearly projecting here.

However, it would seem that your correction of Disillusioned's comment would imply that there was something wrong in the first place. There is nothing incorrect about his statement.

Yes, there is something wrong. Toxins are not found "especially" in small fish and cetaceans. They are found especially in large fish and cetaceans.

Whether you find it easier or not to find it in a big fish, or a small fish, does not change the facts that plastic is consumed by all sizes of fish.

Not sure why you are repeating this straw man once more, but it looks like you're still not getting it. I'm not going to explain it a third time.

Cheers.

There are plenty of small edible fish that are also ingesting plastic crumbs.

Yes, except I didn't say otherwise; bioaccumulation starts with the smallest fish--or in the case of heavy metals, with what the smallest fish are eating (algae, plankton, etc.).

What I pointed out is that toxins are not "especially" present in smaller fish--the opposite is true. The higher up on the food chain an animal is, the higher the concentration of fat-soluble toxins in them. That's how biomagnification works.

Small fish eat a little toxin, bigger fish eat a lot of those small fish, even bigger fish eat a lot of those fish, and so on.

poisons, heavy metals and plastics in seafood, especially in smaller fish and cetaceans.

That would be "larger fish and cetaceans" (biomagnification).

I've never bought a melon, but ¥500 doesn't seem like such a high markup. The other farmer was gettin ¥600

I meant the retail markup (you cannot determine the farmers' markup from this article).

These 500 and 600 yen melons will probably be sold to the consumer for thrice that.

everything goes to his sister since he has no spouse or heirs, and what will become of the iconic property Paisley Park. Hope it doesn't turn into a long legal battle and his relatives can sort everything out to their satisfaction.

The Minnesota probate code is reportedly very clear about who gets what. It also apparently treats half-siblings the same as full siblings, so it would be split evenly six ways.
