    well this is interesting: Denmark Imposes fat tax. i have mixed feelings about this. i can see how this can be both a good and bad thing. it can deter people from going overboard on butter, but it can also stop them from choosing to drink a glass of milk (which is good for you) and have OJ instead (which is good, but not as nutritious as milk).

    It has to be pretty harsh to go through a Danish tax audit only to be told you're fat.
    And if you ask them to double check they might find you're ugly too.

    I'm not posting this because it's political, I'm posting this because it's hilarious and weird and sad at the same time. This is a story of people who moved halfway across the country and spent their savings to campaign for Sarah Palin. And then they found out she wasn't running.

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politic...nned-disappointed-but-will-there-be-backlash/

    Remember what Bob Dylan said, kids, "Don't follow leaders and watch the parkin' metaws."

    Okay, this is not political, this is just funny. Watch this video. Make sure to watch it until the 40 second mark, and then pay close attention.

    Only then may you check out this image that I made.

    Folks are calling that the "smoking" ad, but it's the slow-mo smile that appeals to my sense of humor. Go figure!

    It is probably better that this is a web video and not a TV ad.

    I was thinking more along the lines of Apple tracking than Facebook, but valid point.
