So apathetic. So, so apathetic.

Report: Poor People Pretty Much Fucked | The Onion - America's Finest News Source:
"'Although poor people have never had it particularly sweet, America has long been considered the land of opportunity, where upward class mobility is hard work's reward,' Park said. 'However, our study shows that limited access to quality education and a shortage of employment opportunities in depressed areas all but ensure that, once fucked, an individual tends to stay fucked.'"

Why not legalize marijuana and tax it, like liquor? | Cynthia Tucker:
"Researchers associated with the Rand Corp.’s Drug Policy Research Center said Wednesday that not much is certain about the potential impact of Proposition 19 except that the price of California’s choicest weed could plunge more than 80%, down from $300 to $450 per ounce to about $38."

Nutritional value of fruits, veggies is dwindling - Health - Diet and nutrition -
"It's happening to crops in the United States, too. In 2004, Donald Davis, PhD, a former researcher with the Biochemical Institute at the University of Texas, Austin, led a team that analyzed 43 fruits and vegetables from 1950 to 1999 and reported reductions in vitamins, minerals, and protein. Using USDA data, he found that broccoli, for example, had 130 mg of calcium in 1950. Today, that number is only 48 mg. What's going on? Davis believes it's due to the farming industry's desire to grow bigger vegetables faster. The very things that speed growth — selective breeding and synthetic fertilizers — decrease produce's ability to synthesize nutrients or absorb them from the soil."
