Response to 9 Potential Mass Shootings That Were Stopped By Someone With A Personally Owned Firearm:
A prime example of why you should be required to pass rigorous training before you are allowed to buy a gun and ESPECIALLY before being issued any conceal and carry permit. We need to take classes and pass written and practical tests before getting a drivers license, why should it be easier to get a gun? (NOTE- people steal cars, drive underage and while drunk and yet we STILL require licenses to drive. So the argument that “Bad guys will get guns even if its illegal so why make it harder for the good guys to get guns” is kind of silly when you think about it..) Almost ALL of these people were professionally trained. Your average Joe with a gun would most likely have injured MORE people in the process of trying to bring down the shooter. Hell, even professionally trained cops hit innocent bystanders more than they’d like to admit, how do you think YOU would do under that sort of pressure?
Never said they were they were the healthiest option, just said they are delicious ;)
I’m so sick of self-righteous people chiming in with this same refrain after every mass shooting or terrorist attack. We’ve all heard the theory by now. This isn’t a Harry Potter book, saying someone’s name shouldn’t be this melodramatic taboo. Plus, its never going to happen. People will always be fascinated with the seemingly normal individuals who snap and do the unthinkable. It’s not glamorizing the killer and it’s not making them into celebrities, its answering the question in everyone’s mind- “Who could do such a thing?”. Talking about the victims isn’t nearly as interesting and frankly, (in my opinion) it seems rather disrespectful and voyeuristic to thrust vulnerable and grieving families into the spotlight. Censorship isn’t the answer. Treating the root of the problem is the answer (expanding mental health care and limiting access to guns are a good start…)
OKAY so those Smart Strips fake chicken things are DELICIOUS and I’m very sad that all the grocery stores around me don’t seem to carry them anymore :( My husband and I aren’t vegetarian, but we still buy fake meat fairly frequently. Some meat eaters are seriously closed minded, ain’t nothing wrong with tofu or veggie burgers. Expand your palates plz.

Response to How To Make Easy Pasta Carbonara:
from everything i’ve read its an in invention of american soldiers stationed in italy during WWII. awesome recipe though! when we make it we use the whole egg, not just the yolk. you put the egg mixture directly on the hot pasta so it cooks the egg, no need to worry about salmonella- you can even heat it some more if needed.

Response to 40 Personal DIY Details From Real Weddings:
i’m in the midst of planning my own wedding and there are so many fun ideas out there, but its really not worth the time or money for a lot of it. i’m definitely aiming for unique and fun wedding (i.e. not in a church or reception hall) but these little details can get pretty self indulgent. no one else will notice or care about flowers in your programs or the font on their place markers. good people, good music and good food are all that your guests will appreciate or remember.
