Impeach Lepkowski - Always smiling and telling people to "start packing." Then trying to sell their home out from underneath of them. No one tells him to start packing and then sells their home. That's simply impolite. The welcome mat is not legally binding. When did Dan get powers of eminent domain?

The placebo cure-all TL;DR? - Tired of high prices for meds...
It's kind of odd that this alleged miracle cure all isn't examined a bit more in depth, especially when they report some of the same side-effects. Or at least declare a war on it so the powers that be can pat themselves on the back and claim victory. :) - More>>

So $4/pack is a freaking bargain. Like you're only paying 10% of the real cost to enjoy them rich noxious nerve gases. Yum! - More>>

The Abusive Public Relations Industry - If you TL;DR this, here's some highlights and the gist of it. A lot information is biased commercial garbage, so it's best to do your own research (try this internets). It shows how Independent 3rd party research is bought and paid for amongst other things. It has some interesting things about JAMA (the premiere "objective" medical journal that used to advertise cigarette's for their health benefits) and how scientists earn Pharma funding for reviewing their drugs. It sort of devolves into a rant, so take it for what it's worth...
