USDA Aims to Crush Obesity Epidemic with Flashy New Food Plate
When it comes to eating, Americans aren't exactly known for showing restraint. However, you can hardly blame nutritional ignorance for our country's ballooning waistlines. Back in 1992, the USDA adopted the Food Pyramid to help educate Americans about the components of a well-balanced diet. The chart was cribbed from Denmark, where it had been published 14 years prior, and offered a simple breakdown of food groups and recommended serving sizes.

You Will Not Remember Reading This Article

6 Reasons Men Should Pee Sitting Down
Ever since man could stand, he's opted to pee while doing so. Maybe not constantly, but certainly when the occasion calls for it. However, in recent years, arguments have surfaced as to whether the inclusion of urinals in public toilets are "intrinsically sexist" because they can only be used by males. Feminist craziness aside, there are plenty of benefits to peeing while comfortably seated, and if you're one of the cave dwellers who still insists on taking your leaks in the ...

A while back I brought up a t-shirt sold by Wet Seal that took the English language from behind and humiliated it so much, it's getting a "ripped from the headlines" episode on Law and Order: SVU. Today's shirt doesn't bastardize proper spelling and grammar, but it does take a dump on the hearts of working stiffs in blue collar jobs. Want the illusion of being a hard-working mechanic who gets grime under your fingernails and comes home with an aching back, grease in your ...
