#26 - It's actually a mylar blanket. They're ridiculously inexpensive, lightweight, take up almost no space, and work really well for trapping body heat. They're a great addition to any emergency kit.

I volunteer at the Chicago Marathon every year, and all the runners get them after the race to help prevent hypothermia.

#9 - I believe the point is accuracy, effectiveness, and efficiency.

Think of it like treating cancer. It used to be that doctors would only be able to poison the whole body with chemo in the hope of killing off the bad stuff before too much damage was done to the rest. As technology progresses, they're getting better at isolating and attacking the problem, while leaving the rest of the body relatively unharmed.

+7 9. JaeMarie commented 13 years ago on video Nasty Big Oil Tank Explosion!

#11 - I didn't suspect that there was any fire inside the tank, but as they mention at 0:25 that excessive heat can cause an explosion.

Years ago I was talking to a firefighter friend of mine, telling him about the house my mother had just purchased. It was a brick home with a VERY narrow walkway in between it and the next house. He mentioned that situations like that were a PITA, because if one house was burning, they had to be sure to keep the neighboring house hosed off to keep the temp down to keep the interior of that from igniting.

Fire needs 3 things. Oxygen, fuel, and heat. Water doesn't just suffocate a fire, but it's also used to bring temperatures down below that of ignition.

I'd be curious to know what percentage of those drivers causing the accidents drove regularly in the city vs the ones that weren't used to the streets.

Just a guess, but I'm thinking that the majority are unfamiliar with the streets and probably trying to find their way and read street signs instead of noticing that GIANT METAL THING running them down.

#10 - If the woman releases multiple eggs that are fertilized, the babies will be fraternal twins (either sex & look different.) Same process as above, but more of them.

If she releases one egg, and after fertilization when the fertilized egg begins splitting and growing (2:20ish) if the cells completely separate, then a baby can grow from each. They would be identical twins, of the same sex and appearance, since they come from the same DNA. Triplets and other identical multiples are the same, just having split off more cells from the original.

Conjoined twins occur when the cell split is incomplete. They are identical, but never completely separated.

The egg itself doesn't begin splitting/growing on it's own - it needs to be fertilized first.

+5 13. JaeMarie commented 13 years ago on video Cop ran over

Ummm, did anyone else think that at 0:48 the cop was either going to have his throat crushed or nearly be decapitated between the bumpers of the cars? That is an extremely lucky man to not be dead.

As far as only drawing a gun in the face of a deadly weapon ie knife or a gun? Well, it sure as hell looked to me like the driver was using his car as a deadly weapon. The way he was driving could have caused any number of fatal accidents, and he showed no hesitation backing into that officer or plowing into that other car.

As for the innocent(?) passenger (of a stolen car), if the officers had guns on them, then common sense would state that they've had appropriate training... which would mean they wouldn't unload blindly into the car. A trained officer isn't going to take a shot unless it's a clean one. Not only that, but it's just as likely that they might have used the guns to take out the tires to keep the guy from flying back and forth.

#21 Please see hyperhydration.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_intoxication

The consumption of too much plain old everyday water CAN kill you. Just because something is "natural" or an element doesn't make it safe. Arsenic is a natural element (double whammy!) and I'm sure you'd find that your body doesn't handle it nearly as well as a diet pop. ;)

#17 - I'm believing this one http://www.snopes.com/cokelore/cokelore.asp before some random youtube link. Besides, I find it odd that an egg sitting in a cup of coke for a YEAR? is filled to the exact same level as when it was poured, and the egg hasn't rotted from the inside out.

Besides, if you're worried about the breakdown of calcium in your teeth, ANY acidic liquid will have the same effect with prolonged exposure. Orange juice, lemon juice, tomato juice, black tea, coffee, and beer are all acidic.

Like with anything in life, use a little moderation, common sense and enjoy. ;)

#11 Thanks for the extra info.

I'd almost forgotten how many versions of "disposables" there are lol. Thinking back on it, I believe the specific ones I have are weekly use disposables... or something like that. In any case, I've just taken care of them the same as I took care of the other more expensive contacts, and they've held up just fine and feel great.
Picture of JaeMarie37 achievements

+10 22. JaeMarie commented 14 years ago on video How It's Made: Contact Lenses

#3 & #6

Many years ago one of the prime time news programs did a show where they talked to eye doctors and manufacturers of contacts about the differences between disposables and regular contacts. There were only a couple doc's willing to say it, but I think they got one of the manufacturers to fess up that there's really no difference. The biggest differences are when it comes to extended wear (that you're supposed to be able to leave in for like a week at a time, then toss) as those are more gas permeable.

Since I saw that show... probably almost 10 years ago, I've purchased the much cheaper disposables and worn them and cared for them like daily wear lenses. If you take care of them, they last just fine, and I don't feel bad tossing them after several months or a year if I do start getting deposits on them. It's also quite convenient having spare sets around in case I loose one.

The ones I have come 6 to a box (one box for each eye, as my prescriptions are different) and after about 4years, I still have one pair left. I'll be going in this spring to get my eyes checked for health, even though the scripts don't seem to have changed. I'll order some more then.

Just for comparison, I have an astigmatism, so the lenses were more expensive than the regular ones at that time. When I got these I paid about $27 per box for the disposables, whereas they wanted in the $70 range for the SINGLE pair.

Easy math. ;)

+16 24. JaeMarie commented 14 years ago on video Illusionist walks through table

LOL - that was pretty slick!

The finish on the surface of the table is pretty flat, but you can see at 1:57 that there's some kind of seam/interruption of the surface in line with that inset. If not for the windows in the background casting some glare on the table, it would be harder to see.

Now, as far as whatever mechanism they have installed that is opening to his front/closing behind him, or however THAT works, I can't really tell. I've got to think on this one and watch it on something better than my netbook lol.

Another thought - maybe it's something along the lines of a high tech roller shade? He works his way into the middle of it, and stays in the hole while moving forward slowly with it. If you notice at the end, he takes the jacket off and covers himself from the front before he leaves the light colored inset.

0 25. JaeMarie commented 14 years ago on video bus driver fights with child

#10 "You clearly didn't raise any children yet..."

You're right - I'm not FINISHED raising my children, but I am raising them now. I bust my ass to take care of them, sit with them and help with homework, ask them about school, friends, etc, and pay attention to them.

"Leading by example doesn't work at all. All you get from that is the kid thinking you're a weakling and becoming more distant."

So, kids don't pick up behaviors from their parents? Disrespectful adults don't tend to raise disrespectful kids? I guarantee you that my kids don't think I'm a weakling just because I don't slap them around, and they're anything but distant.

My parents never laid a hand on me, other than the occasional pop on the butt as a little kid (which I've done with my own kids as well, if they were endangering themselves or someone else.) They raised me to respect them (not just by laying down rules, but by SHOWING ME what respect for others looked like) and had very high expectations of me. I never DREAMED of smarting off to my parents or stepping out of line. They always knew where I was, I never got into trouble at school, I never drank, smoked, or tried drugs and *gasp* I know this is hard to believe these days, but I also wasn't having sex (so I reject the "We accept that kids can start their sex life earlier" part, because not EVERYBODY accepts it.) My parents worked hard at doing a good job, and I'm following their lead.

If parents are willing to put the effort into their kids where the kids need support and supervision, there wouldn't be so many "douchebag" kids. Track down the douchebags and look at their lives. Do they have parents who did their best to give little Johnny whatever he WANTED, or what he actually NEEDED? Do those kids have responsibilities/chores to do, or do they come home and play on the computer and X-Box all night?

"Think."

Thank you, I did ;) .

#6

The problem isn't that the kids are supposed to be learning respect "at that age", the problem is that they should have good parents teaching them respect WAYYYYYYYY before they're ever ready to start going to school.

You'll never slap respect into anyone. The only thing that teaches is fear of getting slapped again, or worse. When parents lead by example and teach their children respect by guiding them, THEN children learn respect... and yes, I am a mother of 3 boys (who teachers consistently tell me are of the best behaved and most polite, helpful, and enjoyable kids.)

Lastly - "Child abuse is when the kid ends up in hospital, or, worse."

Really? I damn near choked on that comment. I have a friend who is dealing with an abusive ex (who the Department of Child and Family Services has investigated for a dozen or so reportings by the school, doctors, etc) is stuck having to turn her daughter regularly over to this monster. The bruises he leaves on her are always discreet, he plays a "game" of raising his arm to her face but only hits her some of the time, throws things at her, and while he hasn't locked her in a dog crate for a while, has threatened to kill her a number of times.

But I guess by your definition, that's not abuse. Maybe my friend just needs to wait it out till her daughter "ends up in hospital, or, worse" before she worries about it.

I used to work at a pet shop, and I have to say - hamsters ARE EVIL!

The nice ones got hearts drawn on their tanks to be sold as pets, the ones that bit got red X's and were sold 1/2 price for snake food. Even then, there were only a few snake owners who had snakes slick enough that they'd buy them. The last thing a snake owner wants is the snake's food kicking it's ass :( .

"99% of the time, when you see this, the child is just being a brat."

And then there's the other 1%.

Think of it this way. Let's say you were walking down the street, saw this happening, and did nothing. Later that day you see an Amber Alert with a picture of the child you dismissed.

Can you say in good conscience that your inaction would have been justified and you wouldn't question your decisions?

#19 - Ohhhh Noooo! Embarrassment? *gasp* We can't have that!

Who the hell cares? It's simple - "Hey little girl, do you know this guy?" If the answer is no, CALL THE POLICE. If it IS some snotty brat trying to manipulate the situation, when the cops get there and sort things out, she's going to get an earful and a half from them AND whatever's coming to her at home.

Why bother and go through the hassle? There's only 1 in 100 chance it's something bad? Don't you think it would mean a HELL of a lot to that kid that gets raped, beaten and may or may not be lucky enough to be found dead in a ditch? How great does the percentage have to be before it's worth inconveniencing you? Yeah. Maybe you could have saved some kids life, but you were running late and really wanted to stop at Starbucks on your way to work. I mean, it would be a shame if you didn't get your morning coffee...

#22 - You make no sense. Do you think shows do things like this with the intent to mess with people's emotions for entertainment? They do shows like this to try to get people to WAKE UP. They're not *making* any "good people" look like fools. The "good people" are making THEMSELVES look apathetic. Don't be whiny and blame the reason you wouldn't help on the thin chance that there might be actors involved. Own your apathy and admit that you just don't care about enough outside of yourself to be bothered.

+4 35. JaeMarie commented 14 years ago on video Bystander Effect - people watch girl being abducted

As a mother of three, when I see something like this the thought that comes to mind is the question "If this were my child, would I want someone to step in?"

The answer is YES.

I have yet to witness anything like the above or come across a stranger in the park watching kids type scenario, but I have been in stores and brought children to the attention of workers/management when I see parents ignoring their children or children unattended and wandering off where they could be grabbed. I've found that if I say something to a parent directly if they're not paying attention to their child, the child will likely get yelled at, but it's less likely when an employee/management says something.

While these two were slacking in a way that you should *NEVER* let your guard down, she did the right thing by keeping it non-confrontational and letting him have at the cash. Unless you have the upper hand (which they obviously didn't) and don't mind getting shot at, you cooperate.

Rules for getting held up.

1) Don't piss off the dude with the weapon and get yourself killed.

2) Give them what they want to get them out of the building and lock the door behind them.

Everything else beyond that is material and can be replaced.

#4 - he's mentally ill. OCD stands for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

There's no end to the number of ways it manifests itself in different people, but for the most part it feeds anxiety and fear. People are overcome with thoughts of "If I don't do (fill in the blank) then something terrible (sickness, disaster, death) will happen." The thoughts can become so overwhelming and obsessing, that some people won't leave there homes, lose jobs, and lose family and relationships due to their inability to function normally.

It's quite treatable with therapy, if the person can stick to it.

#13 - How they are kept depends greatly on the severity of the crime and the behavior of the inmate.

There are prisons here ranging from "tent cities" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Arpaio to maximum security prisons where inmates are held in individual cells and only allowed out to a controlled area by themselves for 1hr a day. The more violent the crime and more misbehaved the inmate, the more controlled and restricted the environment they're kept in.

"all that money when you dont even need FDA approval to goto market. "

Maybe not in your country, but in the US you do. There's certain allowances for "supplements" leaving them unregulated, which means you don't know if those pills full of powdery stuff contains *exactly* what the label says it does... because no one's checking or holding them responsible.

"When i was in middle school there was only one person in my age group who was on meds for ADHD, now there are classes where over half the students are taking meds for ADHD."

Soooo... the drug companies are force feeding kids these drugs - not the PARENTS who are complaining that little Johnny won't sit still or makes too much noise and go to their doctors DEMANDING they give them something to "fix" their kid? Because people will demand a "quick fix" pill for everything, the drug companies are bad for looking for those fixes?

If you go to the website, you see the $14.99 is a 14 day trial price, after which they charge you the $149.99. If you search the internet for scams related to Brainetics, you'll see cases where they charge BOTH the trial fee AND the full payment of $149.99 at the time of order, then suddenly have difficulties refunding the money if you call them on it.

While I won't discount that some genius kid is using a mental abacus, months ago I checked out the Brainetics DVDs that teach this type of thing. Here's the catch that they DON'T tell you...

THESE "TRICKS" ONLY WORK WITH CERTAIN SERIES OF NUMBERS!

You spend hundreds of dollars on the DVDs to find that YES you can add a list of 7 numbers whether they be in the tens, hundreds or thousands, AS LONG AS the list follows a Fibonacci series http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibonacci_number and you know which digits of which number in the series to add. These are not random numbers that you might come across and be helpful in everyday life like say, when grocery shopping? I made it through about half the DVDs before chalking it up to parlor tricks.

Synesthesia is fascinating. I actually have a form of it (there's over 60 types)that effects the way I see days of the week, months of the year, and some numbers. They take a spacial quality, where I "feel" the days of the week in a flat oval in front of me (each day remains at a specific point of the oval) and the months of the year create a similar oval, but running above my head (february) curving down in front of me (summer months hit about waist high) and curving below my feet and back up behind me (nov, dec, and jan) to my head. Where numbers end up is too complicated to explain effectively.

I honestly thought this was completely normal and that everyone did this, because it's the way I've always seen things and never thought to question it. I'm 38 now, and only about 3 years ago heard about synesthesia. After talking to my sister, I found she does similar things but more associated with colors (certain colors "feel" soft, hard, sharp). She also, thought everyone else did it too.

#16 is right. Homeopathy if founded on the idea that you can take an incredibly diluted amount of something and reap it's benefits. For example, to cure nausea, you should take something that causes nausea, dilute it, and consume that as a cure. Distilled water is used, then X (whatever causes the symptoms of what you're trying to cure) is added. Now here's where it gets funny. The solution is then diluted SO MUCH that there aren't even molecules of X to be found in a sample. The argument by those that believe in the benefits of homeopathy is that the water "remembers" or still contains the "essence" of X, and is therefore helpful. Overall, what homeopathy is, is distilled water.

There was recently a mass overdose of homeopathic "medicines" recently, as protest to show that there really is nothing in them. http://thelinc.co.uk/2010/02/sceptics-take-mass-overdose-to-prove-homeopathy-is-a-hoax/

The only ingredient that he mentions that could have some effect is the silver. Colloidal silver was thought for years to be another "cure all", but has again to be found to be nothing more than snake oil. Unless you want to turn yourself blue forever... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gq8C0GknwAM

FWIW, I'm a massage therapist. Because of that, for some reason there are many people that assume that I'm into alternative therapies. I'm into what can be scientifically proven through sound research. The benefits of colloidal silver and homeopathy are not among them.

And to those that say drug companies don't want us to know that these things work because they can't make money off of it... REALLY? There are a tremendous number of medicines derived from plants that drug companies are already using - don't you think they'd love to find more *if they actually worked*?

To those suggesting that the cops are picking on people in lower economic neighborhoods, consider this.

How do cops choose the places they use to set up stings? They pick neighborhoods where those particular crimes happen. This was likely a neighborhood where there had been several cars stolen. They do the same thing with drug and prostitution stings.

Would it make sense to set up a car theft sting in a neighborhood that hadn't reported any car thefts? This isn't about income levels - it's about where crimes are committed. I live in a crappy neighborhood and have had contact with the cops in the past regarding crimes that occur on my street and what to do to deter them (everything from domestic situations to drug and gang activity.) We were told straight up - the more calls to 911 we place from this neighborhood, the more patrols we'd get. If time and time again we reported a single particular type of crime occurring on my street, I'd think the next step to getting the criminals attention that we were tired of putting up with it would be to lay out some bait and GET THEM AWAY FROM MY FAMILY!.

+9 132. JaeMarie commented 14 years ago on video Stupid Criminals

#30 "Entrapment - In criminal law, entrapment is when a law enforcement agent induces a person to commit an offense which the person would otherwise have been unlikely to commit." Note that the cops would have to be intentionally causing a law abiding citizen to do something they would NOT likely otherwise do.

If an undercover cop TOLD those girls to take the car and they did, THEN arrested them for it, THAT is entrapment.

If an undercover cop posing as a prostitute APPROACHES someone walking down the street and PRESSURES them into purchasing her services, THAT is entrapment.

If an undercover cop looks up registered sex offenders and sends an underage looking person to their home and has that underage looking person PROPOSITION the sex offender, THAT is entrapment.

To leave a car on the street with the keys in it is not CAUSING a normal, law abiding citizen to do ANYTHING they wouldn't already be willing to do. A dear friend of mine lost his car last year because of that exact scenario. He was in a hurry to catch a bus, parked his car, and missed the fact he'd left his keys inside. Does that mean he's guilty of coercing someone into stealing his car?

Final thing. To those that think your financial situation decides your morality, you're sadly mistaken. I've lived below the poverty level for many years and have yet to steal a car, rob a bank, or mug someone. What little I may have in possessions, I've worked my tail off and saved money for. Lack of money doesn't forgive lack of morals.

#15 - I encourage you to check out the link I posted to http://www.perverted-justice.com/ . This is NOT a case of mistaking the age of a child who presents themselves as older. Rules are followed carefully for stings like this, otherwise the evidence can not be used for prosecution. Like I said - chats are logged by a third party - chats that show these predators are AWARE that the person they are talking to is representing themselves as WAY underage CHILDREN. These predators send images/videos of themselves naked, performing acts upon themselves, and encouraging *who they believe to be children* to take part. They groom them, try to become their best friend, encourage them to isolate themselves and disobey their parents. Eventually, they try to get *who they believe to be children* alone to "hang out", or more bluntly, for sex.

This isn't about just not liking someones preferences. This is about people who search out vulnerable children to have their way with.

Dateline worked with the people at Perverted Justice to find these sickos and call them out into the open.

Basically it's a group of people who go into internet chatrooms and pose as CHILDREN. They are approached by adults and things go downhill from there. This is not entrapment. The "kids" are not out there looking for attention or contacting people - there are very strict rules regarding what they do. This is a case of ADULTS searching out children. Everything is logged by a third party, and information is verified before the authorities are contacted. There have been cases where the adult will say "hey - let's meet at McDonalds" and when the meeting is arranged (with police on board) they find the guy has rope, duct tape, handcuffs, sexual paraphernalia... Obviously NOT looking to innocently share a Happy Meal.

"In April 2007, Ferrell launched "Funny or Die", a streaming video website where short comedy films are uploaded and voted on by users. The site features The Landlord, starring Ferrell and Funny or Die co-founder Adam McKay. Ferrell's character is harassed for the rent by his landlady, a swearing, beer-loving, two-year-old girl (played by McKay's daughter, Pearl). Child psychologists have criticized Ferrell and the McKay family for child exploitation, to which McKay responded:

Fortunately she is in this great stage now where she repeats anything you say to her and then forgets it right away, which is key. She has not said the 'B-word' since we shot the thing.

Many great athletes couldn't do half of what these women did. While you couldn't get me to run (unless there was a knife wielding psycho behind me) I have experience with marathon runners. Trust me - only those who train and prepare (most likely for years) come close to finishing these things.

While I agree that people do horrendous things to their bodies in this and similar competitions, I'll never criticize them considering the dedication and heart it takes to drive themselves towards their goal.

Old car - harder outside, person inside takes the force of the crash.

New car - softer outside takes the force of the crash, person insides eats a pillow.

If a cat isn't cleaning itself there's probably an underlying health issue, and should see a vet - not get trapped in a modified dishwasher. Healthy cats take care of themselves just fine.

If healthcare is so terrible in the US, why do people from other countries come here when they have serious conditions or are in need of potentially dangerous surgeries? Maybe because it's not safe, or the wait is too long in their own country?

And the whole "free healthcare" thing cracks me up. Nothing is free. If your government is footing the bill, they're paying it with your own taxes. I'd rather hang on to that money and choose my own heathcare provider and services... thank you very much.

My ex used to work at a match factory. The chemicals they use to make the match heads are about impossible to extinguish once ignited - it has to burn itself out. Had the guy waited past the initial flare up, it's very possible it could have gone out.

+9 165. JaeMarie commented 15 years ago on video Lucky basketball shot

"1 ) why does it always happen at the last 3 seconds of the game?"

Because at any other point in the game when there's time on the clock, there's no reason to throw a "Hail Mary" pass.

"2 ) why is the shot always the deciding factor of the games outcome?"

Common sense. Why throw a "Hail Mary" pass if it won't affect the score of the game? No reason for the team that's ahead to do it, no reason for the team that's behind by too much to bother either.

"3 ) they are all wearing one coloured shirts...get real.."

Actually, on my monitor there's kids wearing red shirts, and kids wearing burgundy shirts. Close, but still different.

"4 ) they look 10 years old, they probably cant throw that far."
They look more like the jr high kids around here - a couple years older.

"5 ) why is there a huge black thing hanging from the ceiling helping to *guide* this ball into the net ?"

I'm guessing it's the mechanism used to sometimes crank up and pull the backboard out of the way, or maybe a black climbing rope like we had in our gym, pulled behind the backboard to keep it (mostly) out of the way.


"finally, as clearly stated by the ref. it wasnt even allowed anyway? so good going to whoever makes these shit fake vids, they dont even achieve nething."

No, once the ball bounces off the ceiling/rafters it's considered out of bounds. Whether it counted towards the games score or not, doesn't take away the fact that it's a cool shot.

Anything else I can help you with while I'm here? ;) .

Remember, natural gas has no odor, so gas companies add a stinky funk to it so people will be aware when there's a leak. I'm sure they should have been able to smell SOMETHING was wrong - particularly when going to drink it.

Can you imagine putting a pot of water on the stove to boil?

#9 I had a cat that would do the same to carrots. She never ate them (just wanted to chew and roll in them) but went ballistic when she smelled them. Otherwise she was a perfectly normal cat.

As long as they're not doing things to create aggressiveness in other situations, this kitten will probably grow into a nice healthy cat... with a broccoli fetish LOL.

Unless we could see what happened before this, it's hard to say who deserved what. For all we know this little snot's been warned over and over again to hit the road... or the guard could be a jerk. Either way, the dumbass kid should have just picked up and gone elsewhere instead of making himself look like an idiot.

Funny, but I'm calling fake.

The way the robber leans in and stretches his arm is rather awkward, and he just happens to have a patch *right* where the dog bites. It looks to me like he's presenting the dog with his mark rather than holding up the clerk.
