Mangoose: How bad can morning sickness get? I have never heard of someone staying at a hospital for it. She must be a) one sick mama or b) one frail little biddy.


My mom had it so bad she actually LOST weight during her pregnancy with me. She also used to have lower than average blood pressure (110/70) and lower than average temp (97.5). I messed her up really badly.

On the plus side, it's really easy to know when you get pregnant.

/good news: looks like I won't have the same problem

The cost of maintaining a royal lifestyle for a select group who happen to belong to the ''Lucky Sperm Club'' is no longer acceptable to many who live in the United Kingdom. (new window)


Is it significantly cheaper to maintain a presidential lifestyle for the US head of state? I don't think the British royal family have their own aircraft, for example. And don't presidents get secret service detail for life when they leave office? Be quite interesting to see just how much all that costs.

Yes, royalty is hereditary, but I like the separation of the representative of the UK from the politics of the UK.

Source4leko: As an American, I honestly couldn't give a shiat less about any royal family unless they are giving up their 'birthright' and getting actual jobs to work for their livings like the rest of us. How did they not get ousted with the rest of their inbred cousins on the continent again?


You may want to look up the English civil war and Oliver Cromwell.

Funny thing, in my youth, I was republican. But then I learned about American politics. Also, I suspect that were the monarchy to be ousted, it would be replaced by something worse (again, see Cromwell).

cptjeff: washington-babylon: cptjeff: Gimli_Gloin: I also don't care for those morning show pranking bullshiate on the drive to work either.

I just don't understand how anyone finds those moronic morning radio show people funny. Yet another reason my radio is pretty much permanently tuned to NPR.

Otherwise know as Radio Hanoi. NPR loves to spin stories as much as possible. The only reason I still listen to them is the Saturday night Music shows.

Let me guess- Fox News is too liberal for you?


Nice guess, but no dice. I am in the camp of "FARK the politics and the little snowflake mentality, grow some thicker skin about your so-called issues and shut up already". I don't care about how the feelings of one group or another might get hurt because they aren't specifically pandered to. I don't trust ANY news casting in the U.S. of whinyness. The media corporations as a whole rely on "Spinning" stories to excite unrest in different groups. It's how they get paid. "Liberal" and "Conservative" are merely labels used to identify the flavor of the spin on the story. And I have reached the point where the flavors are all just crap.
So, no. FOX is not "Too Liberal". It's just another pole of a monetary motor, cranking out cash it the best way it can.

/This country needs a reboot.

Don't forget her family has an endless supply of money.  Rich people go to the hospital for innocuous stuff like "nausea" all the time.  An IV drip can work wonders, and they don't care if the overnight stay costs them $2000.

ocschwar: Nope. I realize they don't actually rule over people. just that they are the biggest welfare queens in the Western Civilization.


If you don't like that, take it up with the citizens of Britain, who continue to support this institution, and the Queen's pension, instead of harassing her grandson's wife in hospital.


I am a citizen of Britain and I will be first in line to vote for the monarchy to be deported to New Zealand and all of their property to be nationalised.

/sorry New Zealand
//or to Fiji if New Zealand become a republic first
///and no one was harassed in hospital, someone made a joke. Bad taste joke? OK, but who cares.

To impersonate Prince Charles, you need these, of course.

"Corporation" wasn't referring to NPR, as the question was featuring Faux News. Does not matter that NPR is publicly funded, they still put a massive slant on most actual news stories.

Hello this is Donald Trump and I am VERY HONORED to be prank calling you as the queen. No. This is...I really am Donald Trump. I am VERY HON...I already told you. Yes. Yes. No. Yes, I...no I am Donald Trump. Why would I say I am if I weren't? I can have you fired, believe me. I...hello? Hello?

Unbelievable. That idiot just hung up on DONALD TRUMP.

Stuff like, "Did John Boehner make a secret deal with white power skinhead terrorists?" And "today it was reported that Republican Anthony Weiner traded tips on prostitute sex with Republican Eliot Spitzer."

I was Australian. I am now American.

I renounced my fealty to the Queen.

I also gave up the right to tell Australians and other British subjects whether or not to keep the monarchy. Not my business anymore.

Can you give an example? They seem pretty even handed whenever I have listened, although I only ever listen to All Things Considered.

No, he can't. The NPR is biased thing is complete and utter shiat. Though I do recommend On the Media's look at the subject, which includes extensive work with a conservative critic.
