Jesda: Don't care. Waste of money. I'd rather pay for food stamps and drones over Pakistan than this garbage.
MusicMakeMyHeadPound: BillCo: They are not fat because they are lesbians, they are lesbians because they are fat. There is a difference.Ok, I have to admit that was funny.You're improving, Bill!
sigdiamond2000: MusicMakeMyHeadPound: BillCo: They are not fat because they are lesbians, they are lesbians because they are fat. There is a difference.Ok, I have to admit that was funny.You're improving, Bill!It's really heartwarming to see Farkers from both sides of the political aisle finally finding common ground in their rabid, abject misogyny.
HotWingConspiracy: Nobody would blink about an obesity study, which is what it is. Add in the word lesbian and it's pearl clutching time.
SlothB77: Britney Spear's Speculum: 1.5 million for a study that could help save billions in health care costs down the roadi love how every study related to health is going to save us billions in the future. If even half the studies we have done saved us 1/10 the savings we expected from them, our health costs would be negative by now and we'd be getting paid to eat doughnuts by pharmaceutical companies.This study, like the close door button in an elevator, will do nothing.

WhippingBoy: Most likely it's due to their rejection of patriarchal society's "oppressive standards of beauty" so they actively reject the modicum of self-control required to avoid becoming obese.
HMS_Blinkin: ManRay: Funding a fat study over EMTs and firefighters?At least we know where the Government's priorities are.Um, aren't most firefighters employed by local government? And don't most EMTs work for private ambulance companies? Really not sure how a million dollars to a study can effect either of those things.And good work CNS, you've found about 1/100th of a single F-35 worth of wasteful spending. Congrats.
Tman144: I heard this from a defendant on Judge Judy, its as true now as it ever was:"Women fall in love with their ears, not their eyes."
oryx: Go be a lesbian somewhere else?
MyRandomName: It is quite amazing how social science can live only off federal grants. Also amazing the amount of studies that have been found to be wrong or filed with fake survey data. Off to see the progress of the study repeatability effort going on to show social science fraud.
Cletus C.: Perhaps this will lead to study on why Walmart shoppers are so fat. Not just fat, mobility cart fat.
bunner: Here's the thing about race and gender based "movements". If you need to shock, annoy, get a reaction from or get the approval of your oppressors, your movement is probably a joke. The only revolution that ever amounted to a damn was when the bridge that tenuously straddled the chasm between rich and poor finally fell into the canyon and the latter went rogue. The rest are just things that the former sell, promote and keep close to a boil in order to keep poor people barking at each other instead of them. I don't care if you f*ck albino goats in a leather harness on Lent, but the lard on your ass is your problem and the endless prefab drama surrounding your "lifestyle choices" interest almost nobody. Nor should they. Try the rice cakes.
FLMountainMan: Thread full of false dichotomies, false equivalencies, red herrings, and strawmen from the left.
ph0rk: Aren't all NIH grants sequester proof once awarded? This passed the NIH approval process, the story is where?
skozlaw: FLMountainMan: Thread full of false dichotomies, false equivalencies, red herrings, and strawmen from the left.Such as?
Sybarite: HotWingConspiracy: I think this is the actual grant requestTo be honest, I don't know what they're hoping to learn here because we already know that fat flocks together. It's a social thing.Also a gravity thing.
Day_Old_Dutchie: CNSNews.com is not funded by the government like NPR.CNSNews.com is not funded by the government like PBS.In other words, they are funded by tightass bigoted assholes.
JackieRabbit: jso2897: What part of "across the board" don't these retards understand? That's why letting this happen was a bad idea.But, they stuck it to Obummer, and that's all that really matters.2014, assholes. It's coming sooner than you think.It appears that some people don't understand how NIH grants work. The money has already be allocated. The "across-the-board" part of the sequester is just political bullshiat and many programs are exempt.The Obama administration actually has nothing whatsoever to say about who or for what the independent committee that makes these grant determinations fund. They are prohibited from doing so by law, so that scientific research will not be politicized. And, $1.5M is a very small NIH grant.
vingamm: LMAO I find it incredibly interesting that if I do a google search on this article I cannot not find it being covered on Any major news site. Not NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, BBC News, NY Time, NY Post, Fortune, WSJ, The Register, CSPAN or......drum roll....FOX News. I can only find it on rightwing nut job websites. Not saying it is not a credible story but my daddy use to tell me if sometime quacks like a duck............
JollyMagistrate: Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Mass., has received two grants administered by NIH's Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to study the relationship between sexual orientation and obesity.Oh, surprise surprise. A post on fark is needlessly hyperbolic and has little to do with the source material. I know it's been a slow devolution from silly headlines to mostly troll posts only, but when is enough enough?
FlashHarry: CNS news? let me guess... just like eric cantor's "obama's paying people to play WoW!!!!" claim, which was really a study of alzheimer's disease, there's a wee bit more to the story.
MagicianNamedGob: CNS "News?" I thought moronic, right-wing, propaganda outlets only got green lit on the Politics board. You know, for "balance."
JackieRabbit: It appears that some people don't understand how NIH grants work. The money has already be allocated. The "across-the-board" part of the sequester is just political bullshiat and many programs are exempt.
