Welcome back. How are you? I have to admit, it looked for a little while like we weren't going ot be able to meet up today. I finally fix the Clutter Headquarters IT issues, and then suddenly our web hosting company wouldn't let me log in. That's not cool. However, we were able to get in before another crisis developed, so it's all good. Everyone ready to get to work? Great, help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter.
I missed this, but apparently Hillary Clinton compared Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler?
It's great to hear that President Obama eliminated funding for abstinence-only-until-marriage programs from his latest budget. These programs aren't based in science, and they leave students umprepared to make informed decisions about how to lead healthy lives.
"Upskirt" pictures may be sleazy as hell, but apparently they're not illegal in Massachusetts. I imagine the Legislature will be revisiting that statute pretty quickly.
Wait, is Facebook looking to buy a drone company to "deal with" people who aren't subscribers?
Six games into spring training, the Red Sox have still won every game I've watched.
I generally liked former Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and would have been okay with Boston trying to sign him to a new reasonable contract, but when you lose your job in the middle of the World Series, it probably shouldn't be that much of a surprise when the team doesn't make a great effort to re-sign you. Best of luck to Salty in Miami, though I still think that humidity is going to be bru-tal on his hair.
We were talking yesterday about how awkard it would be for the Florida Panthers to have both former Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas and his one-time Stanley Cup rival Roberto Luongo on the same team. Awkwardness avoided, as the Panthers sent Thomas packing.
The World Health Organization wants to know if you can get buy on no more than five teaspoons of sugar a day. My hunch is that there's more sugar than that in my morning coffee (though I don't have the heart to look on the DD website), so I probably fail this test by 8:00 in the morning each day, but it is an important point to remember: Sugar is actively bad for you, and the less you can consume, the better off you'll be on multiple fronts.
I really hope I'm not shattering any illusions here, but it turns out that Ellen DeGeneres' "selfie" bit at the Oscars wasn't spontaneous. I know, it's shocking. Are we all okay? Can we move on?
Wait, we've already reached the point where an actress can considered to be "the next Jennifer Lawrence?" Has Jennifer Lawrence been around long enough for there to be another one of her? When did that happen?
Already old news? (pic via metro.co.uk)
Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. I feel like Debbie Downer every time we post something about sugar being bad for you, though that's an important message. There may be one time where it's not as harmful, and that's when Def Leppard is singing about it, though some people have told me today's, "Song of the Day" isn't about sugar? I don't know, I just report what I hear. Enjoy this blast from the past:
Thanks for stopping by, everyone. It was great to see you, as always. Have a good day, behave yourselves (as much as possible), and we'll see you back here again for more fun soon. Until next time, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
