The following are quoted from a Food Babe article on the dangers of air travel. These should serve to prevent her from ever being taken seriously on anything ever again, but sadly, it hasn't fully done so. No I am not going to stop railing on her or other purveyors of idiocy. This is ncal-grade garbage and the fact that someone like this had influence is astounding.

When your body is in the air, at a seriously high altitude, your body under goes some serious pressure. Just think about it – Airplanes thrive in places we don’t. You are traveling in a pressurized cabin, and when your body is pressurized, it gets really compressed!

Compression leads to all sorts of issues. First off your body’s digestive organs start to shrink, taxing your ability to digest large quantities of food. Secondly, this compression reduces the ability for your body to normally circulate blood through your blood vessels.

The air you are breathing on an airplane is recycled from directly outside of your window. That means you are breathing everything that the airplanes gives off and is flying through. The air that is pumped in isn’t pure oxygen either, it’s mixed with nitrogen, sometimes almost at 50%. To pump a greater amount of oxygen in costs money in terms of fuel and the airlines know this! The nitrogen may affect the times and dosages of medications, make you feel bloated and cause your ankles and joints swell.

Until recently, Adam Ronning, 33 and from Minnesota, has been "dead" for 29 years. Just ask the IRS.

At age 4 he was mistakenly reported to the Social Security Administration's Death Master file as, well, dead. His parents' tax returns listing him as a dependent were constantly flagged for audit. When he went to get his first job, he was always having problems. He could not get credit, pass a background check, or anything.

The IRS of course still expected him to file and pay his taxes, but when he was due a refund they refused to issue any, since they apparently have a policy against issuing refunds to dead people, but don't have one against collecting taxes from them. At one point the IRS simultaneously had cases going where they were refusing to allow him to apply a refund as credit against other taxes he owed for the next year (like all of us living people can do) causing them to be simultaneously denying him a refund while pursuing wage garnishments against him, under the same SSN of course. The IRS owed him more than $20,000 in refunds but continued to demand he pay more taxes. His pleas to both the SSN and the IRS that he was not dead fell on deaf ears for the longest time.

It was only upon the personal intervention of US Senator Amy Klobuchar that Mr. Donning has been returned from the dead. "This was an absurd situation," the senator said in a statement. "This constituent was declared dead by the government when he wasn't. It doesn't get much worse than that."

Fun Fact: About 9,000 people are accidentally reported dead to the SSN every year.

And, let me add....

There are also those who want to turn EVERYTHING into a political topic. Besides ncal, there are others around here that do it, and not all of them are idiots.

I know people to whom I can barely so much as say "our business is doing well" without them either saying "Thanks to Trump!" or "Just you wait Trump is going to crash the economy!". If a local business is closing, it's because of Obamacare, or Trump, or Republicrats. WHATEVER. These people annoy the fucking shit out of me.

I do not like to fight. Most people are unable to disagree without it devolving into a fight.

I still do not understand a lot of that kind of thinking. I have said it over and over. I want disagreement, I want debate, I want to be challenged and forced to defend my positions. Evolve or die I guess. if you agree with everything I say, it is one boring conversation. I guess all that is ls left to do IS fuck.

"Do you want to talk politics or do you want to fuck?"

LOL..you know no one listening to his opinion EVER if he finds that's the best time to talk politics. Excuse me but I'd rather go jerk off a bald eagle.

One of my favorite stories rabbit has told here when she was a sf was when the male half of a couple she was playing with started talking politics with here. He started chiding her about her liberal ideas and she said, "Do you want to talk politics or do you want to fuck?"

Shut him right up.
