Aug 22nd 2012 7:07PM I didn't realize that AOL just recycled old articles. I read these same articles probably this time last year. Word for word! Ahh, just shows how much things have changed since the real newspaper went away.
Jun 15th 2011 4:08PM so when are we going to quit calling her Middleton? Isn't she married to prince william? Doesn't that make her Princess Kate? I didn't see us calling Diana by her maiden name it was always "Princess Diana".
Jun 8th 2011 2:06AM Yeah, they had to pay out of pocket for the bags, and when they file their travel vouchers, they will receive every penny of that back. This article is very misleading, and these soldiers have stepped over the boundaries, in my humble opinion. It's common for soldiers or airmen to pay out of pocket expenses when travelling, and then later recieving a refund. This is part of the deal of contracting out services for the US Military. We don't have military planes flying, so they have to pay the airlines in question. Anything above and beyond the original agreement is the responsibility of travel pay within their command to cover those costs. It's always done out of pocket for the military member, who receives a full refund within a week.
There's plenty to whine about being in the military. This isn't one of them.
Apr 25th 2011 3:51AM whoever wrote this article is insane. One of the most blatantly sexist nations I have visited, right after Egypt, was Germany. A german pilot even once told me they had a wonderful Air Force until they allowed women in, which only started in the 80's. I remember speaking with a German who told me how the male soldiers hated working under females because they didn't want to take orders from them.
Apr 21st 2011 12:57AM You must be getting paid for this. I can't even stomach the wendy's fries. They are Nasty with a capital N. They need to go back to the old ones, or at least sell them both. I had Wendy's fries one day and hardee's the next, both are identitical in size, shape and style - and even Hardees was better than wendy's.
Apr 12th 2011 1:19PM well, unless the miltiary pay structure has changed in the last oh... let's say 10 years, with 100% pay increases, you are out of your cotton pickin' mind (yes, an old southernism there)! Military pay sucks. The only thing worse is working a minimum wage job. True, if you have been in the service for 15 years and gained significant rank, then sure. But since most of those deployed have been in the service less than that, let me repeat, you are out of your cotton pickin' mind. Add to that how the wives are unable to get more than minimum wage jobs (because the military does still move families ever 3-4 years) you have a problem with finances. Just because in the 20's ppl made $1.00 an hour doesn't mean they shouldn't make more. And just because the military is easier now than it was in the past doesn't mean it shouldn't be better.
Yes, thinks are better than the last time I deployed on active duty - cell phones were just getting popular then, and the only ones who had them were officers, but I did have email. It made things easier than it had the previous gulf war, but separation is separation, no matter what.
Jan 27th 2011 2:37PM any article that lists science diet as it's #1 food is a waste and downright lies. It's probably actually a science diet paid advertisement.
Dec 31st 2010 3:19AM the thing is, had that child been allowed to not "pitch tantrums" , then when something was really wrong, the parents would have figured it out. True, some issues are allergies. Some are taste only. I, myself can't handle seafood or, of all things, turkey dressing. The smell of seafood alone can turn my stomach. It's not an allergy, it's a severe dsilike. Turkey dressing - I don't know, all I know is that it never made it all the way down before it came back when I was a kid. It wasn't texture. It was the combination of flavors, I Guess.
But like the woman who posted the "Three bite rule", something like that gave my parents the opportunity to FIND those issues as we grew up. I still ate carrots (which I hate to this day) and I still ate pumpkin (which yes, I still dislike), but wasn't forced to eat sweet potatoes and turkey stuffing or seafood. Everything else, because I showed no more than the average "kid dislike", i ate. Things like Collards and turnip greens, and anything else.
I didn't go hungry, though I didn't enjoy every single meal either. But, at the same time, I didn't have fits because I didn't "like" something. (The stuffing was the only exception, which is why I was allowed to skip it for the rest of my life).
Did I learn to like all those things I didn't like? Nope. But you know what, I got my vitamins and didn't have to drink one of those "Vitamin supplements" they give kids these days.
Dec 31st 2010 2:40AM I don't know. I don't think that Clash of the Titans and Airbender quite fit on this list. Neither were as satisfying as I thought they should be, but trust me when I say there are some really big stinkers not on the list. Legion doesn't deserve a bottom 10 slot either. Not exactly the best movie I've ever seen, but definitely not in the bottom 10.
Personally, even though I like the books, I think all of the Twilight movies are pretty bad (#2 was the best, but then the book #2 was the best too).
Predators, again? Are you kidding me? That certainly belonged in the bottom 10. How about Wall Street? I know, nobody wants to badmouth the movie, but it was freakin' boring as all get out. My husband fell asleep and I started "plotting" my own movie while I watched it.
How about Get him to the Greek? Just dumb.
Then Mega Piranha? MacGruger??? What?
Course these are probably the same guys who put District 12 or whatever it was, in the top #'s last year. It was the most boring movie with the greatest potential I'd ever seen. Everyone touted the style, and it was the style that made me go "You have to be kidding me!"
I have to admit, 2010 was not the year of awesome movies, that's for sure. But let's be fair. If you hadn't seen the original clash of the titans, you'd have loved this one for it's special effects alone! air bender? its' a kids movie, and had harry potter or twilight never seen the light of day, we'd all be thinking "Not bad for a kid's movie".
Overall, sometimes these lists get it right, but they always have some they put down because they are all about entertainment and not "plot". Clash of the titans was the same way in the 80's. It was all about entertainment.
Somehow we seem to forget that entertainment is as important as "literary and visionary" work. After all, if District 12 was so danged good as visionary work, then I really don't want to be watching visionary movies.
Aug 30th 2010 1:21AM Well, I've had issues with the golden in the top ten for years. Ability to think for one's self should be included with intelligence. Goldens are sweet, loveable and easily trainable. They are great friends and wonderful companions. But notice they aren't used as assistance dogs so much anymore. They can't evaluate a situation and make an important decision. They don't think for themselves. They do as their owner asks, no more. No less. Are there exceptions to every rule? Of course there are. :) Just like ppl are exceptions to rules. But on the whole, Goldens are only included on this list because they once topped the competitive obedience ring.
Oh, and that is NOT an Australian Cattle dog in that picture. Maybe an ACD mix, but it's sure not pure ACD.
