    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I wonder if the Secret Service is coming after UBT for his various threats?

    Yeah, it looked a little fish-eye-lens to me, the kind that realtors use to make small apartments look bigger. I couldn't see why one would do that to an entire house, particularly one that is being advertised as cozy and charming and whatnot.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    The blind item rumor mills have had Jeremy cheating on Jinger for quite a while, for what that's worth (I suspect very little). I'm not sure he could have gotten away with it in a "small" town like Laredo, but in LA the sky's the limit if he's into that sort of thing.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I think Derick sees himself as a more successful William Jennings Bryan, not only relitigating the Scopes monkey trial and winning but making it stick, and then running for president and winning and bringing the US back to (his version of) Jesus. I'm sure he dreams big dreams, which I hope don't come true.

    I mean, I chew my nails on occasion as well, so I can't snark on her for that if that's why they're so short. But I'm not using my nails to sell nail art. Even if I wore that stuff, those pictures are not appealing at all with those short stubby nails on those chubby fingers (yes, I have chubby fingers too--again, not a hand model, me).

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I don't think either have them have worked a "real" job in a very long time, if ever, and I don't see either of them happily putting up with the whole "doing things I don't want to do because I have to" thing about any job. I see UBT getting angry and quitting, and Jenelle just leaving/slacking off/smoking up and getting fired.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    20+ years of teaching, and the only time I've had a student ask to take a picture with me (particularly in the first week) was when their sport coach required a picture to show they had showed up to class. Brown-noser supreme, our Jeremy, I suspect.
  8. Ivy will probably turn out pretty; after all, Henry looked like 10 miles of bad road as a baby, but now he's just the cutest thing (and I don't even like kids!). It will be interesting several years down the road to see if Ivy winds up sister-momming her siblings. I hope not, but figure she will.

    Has Meri said why she has the dog now, and if it’s permanent or not?

    Maddie Brown: Seeking a One-Woman Man

    Bill Cosby did say it on an album; he credited it to Carol Burnett on the recording. Cosby then used the image as part of a story about his wife giving birth.
  11. I wonder if her hair always looks greasy because she's trying to go no-shampoo? If she has fine blonde hair under all that dye, best of luck going without washing it. But it would help her crunchy/granola/woke/etc bona-fides if she gave up bathing her head in all those chemicals, or whatever.

    Small Talk: The Polygamous Cul-de-Sac

    Moved from Mykelti>: 2 HOURS AGO, SHARKERBABY SAID: And my absolute last word on this subject... Kody's direct quote was “When you kiss the person that you kiss, the hormones go into your mouth and it registers certain things that will stimulate both the heart and the body for other reasons, ” While very clumsy and awkward, hormones do indeed go into your mouth and kissing does stimulate both the heart and body so yeah, he "wasn't that far off the mark" as @GOTHISH520 put it. Except it appears the two things (the hormones and the stimulation) are correlational and not causal (which is reiterated by the last paragraph of the paper you quoted). After all, there's definitely a link between my alarm going off and the sun rising in the morning, but it doesn't mean that my alarm causes the sun to come up (or vice versa). It actually would be easy to test in a way (have people gargle with "fake" saliva with the same concentration of sex hormones and see if it causes a change), so I wonder why no one has tested it--or they have and it's not been supported and thus not published. I'm sure Kody heard it from someone and repeated it as fact. It's not fact, and so far there is no good evidence that the hormones in saliva swapped during kissing causes any response in the participants. Whether it deserves to be made fun of . . . well, this is a snark site.

    I'm sure after David killed him he chucked his body in the woods, and the scavengers took care of him. No body, no problem. And David probably hid all his weapons under the junk in the garage, so nobody would find them during any search. Or else he refused to let authorities search everywhere, and they figured not to push it.

    Reply moved to "Small Talk", if anyone is interested (probably not, but I teach about how to interpret scientific results and so I'm over-invested).

    The examples you've posted here don't support the contention of hormone-swapping: the first suggests that the act of kissing causes a release of hormones in a participant, but doesn't indicate that they are swapped. And I read the last article, and it doesn't show that hormones are swapped, as the article states; it labels that suggestion as "speculative", as it appears that it hasn't been tested.
