U.S. Birth Rate Sets Record, Hits Lowest Level In A Century

They say that religious people are more likely to have kids than non-religious people. Same for the educated and middle class. Notice that people with the MOST kids tend to be more observant and often lower-income. The more degrees you have, the fewer the offspring. And no, it isn't only because one spent too much time studying. Isn't it interesting? One would think that people with a better education (and therefore more money) would have tons.

Yes, still here!

And I saw more crazy religious folks on the streets today.  Several people were handing out pamphlets/parapheralia on the Apocalypse, which is supposed to occur in 2011 (ummm, I thought it was 2012, for those believers?)....Don't they have anything better to do?

Clergy Arrested In U.K. Crackdown On 'Sham' Immigrant Weddings

This is a problem everywhere. There was a story around here a few weeks ago where a woman married a man in the "old country" (the woman was a citizen of Canada originally from India, I believe). She came home to get all the paperwork to get him here, but once his plane landed he took off! He pretty much only wanted to marry her so he could come to Canada. He had no intention of staying with her AT ALL. She did not know this. While I don't recall whether her parents were involved with arranging this marriage, it should serve as a warning for people who arranged marriages where one partner is from the old country - you never know what their REAL intentions are. That woman was from Canada, and there are plenty of people from her culture in the country whom she could have married.

Innovative Design Protection And Piracy Prevention Act Would Prevent Knockoffs For At Least Three Years

It will either force people to be really creative or not at all. Those who're really, really good will make something very, very distinctive (and difficult to copy) while those who aren't will just do basics (skinny or boot cut jeans, pencil skirts, polo shirts, etc...)

Prop 8 Ruling Exposes Democrats' Weak Support For LGBT Community

I'm really glad that California overturned their ruling. I don't understand why they had it to begin with. For those who're against gay marriage for religious reasons, just don't allow them to marry in your church. After all, if you're Catholic and divorced, you can't marry in a church, nor would many rabbis officiate an interfaith marriage (heck, I have heard of rabbis sending out "warning letters" to families of interfaith couples).

Hugh Hefner: 'Women Are Sex Objects'

Hey Hugh, if women are sex objects, then so would men, right? I mean, according to your theory of creation...
