Yum! Like, Chris Brown is just so damn sexy and he has, like, totally apologized for hitting Rhianna and he’s like, just SO DAMN SEXY! He is such a sweetheart! He’s THE PERFECT MAN and I DESERVE HIM!! YUM!
I don’t really get the diabetes one (of which I’ve seen different versions on several sites now).
Since when does raising money for a cause need to be something in which the recipients of money raised can participate?
The promotion is to buy chocolate bars or sweets of some kind and the money goes towards the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. No-one said anything about forcing them down some diabetes-stricken kid’s throats and then paying for the pleasure.
Otherwise, would it be wrong to do a sponsored run to help disabled people who are in wheelchairs? Would that be posted on the internet as hilariously funny because people in wheelchairs can’t run themselves?
I’ve got a horrible feeling I’ve completely missed the joke here and I’ve got the wrong end of the stick…
Beth isn’t tagged. And either way, putting someone’s face on the internet without their permission is lame and tacky. I’m guessing they have a lot of common friends that would recognize the picture, but even if no one she knows ever sees it, it’s tacky. What’s Lamebook worthy about the post is that the picture was posted, not Beth’s comment.
So I’m thinking Beth isn’t tagged because she untagged herself – but only after commenting on the pic, so it pops up on her profile as “Beth commented on x’s photo”. Perhaps Beth is not the smartest cookie in the box…
Poor Beth. If she had taken a half naked picture of her fat self and posted it online, THEN we could make fun of her. But the fact that she said that, [which is kinda hilarious] just makes me sad. Stupid posts are stupid.
‘eating too much candy could cause diabetes to emerge in people’… this statement is entirely incorrect. Juvenile Diabetes is not caused by eating too much candy. It is an auto immune disorder that is genetic. It is caused when the body starts to attack and destroy the cells in the pancreas. No one really knows WHY this happens but there are some things that are thought to be ‘triggers’. Such as an infection with a specific virus or bacteria. Even having the flu can trigger this sort of response.
You’re right, I think. I am not an expert and since our medical professional (Ben) is not around, I can’t ask him.
I didn’t really mean that candy (or diet) can be a direct trigger for diabetes. I more meant that a poor diet (lots of candy) can cause obesity, which I’ve read can lead to a higher chance of diabetes, later in life.
Again, I don’t know if this is true, but that’s more what I was getting at.
Thanks for the education, I always welcome it. Also, thanks for not saying “You’re an idiot! Skittles don’t make diabetes! Jerk!”
Not that anyone can take my word for it online, but whyohwhy is correct. mccowles is partially correct. The thing that many people don’t realize is that Type I diabetes, sometimes called juvenile diabetes, and Type II diabetes are different. Type I diabetes is an autoimmune disorder that keeps your body from producing insulin, while Type II diabetes happens when your insulin receptors are no longer sensitive. Type I diabetes is not caused by your diet or weight, but Type II can be.
Mostly because I spent some time researching it, after “this all went down”.
Leading things thought to be triggers for Type II Diabetes:
1) Increasing Age
3) Inactive lifestyle
4) Riding a motorcycle to and from work, without ever taking it out on the highway to really enjoy the wind against you as you go.
There were some other rarer “triggers”, but those are the main four…. or three, whatever.
The diabetic thing could be thought of as “counter-productive” in the case of type 2 diabetes, but the sign clearly says juvinile (i.e early onset type 1 diabetes) which has nothing to do with eating too much candy as it’s genetic! So yeah… lame.
Only really ever seen tampons whilst still in the wrapper, so I didn’t make the bread-tampon connection. I did, however, make the connection between the end of those loaves and penisis (peni?). Call it my 13 yr old inner child at work.
I would like to point out that the incident of Type II Diabetes in America is growing as a result of the increasing obesity, inactivity and poor diet among Americans. Heart attacks and strokes are also increasing. All typically diseases of the middle ages but increasingly being seen in younger and younger adults and even children. That is what is truly scary about the Obesity Epidemic.
As for Beth…I feel very sorry for her. She probably does eat, to hide from the pain of how she looks, and its not helping her out at all.
Yer the diabetes one makes no sense it’s basically as IndieSinger said…
and JUVENILE Diabetes is in no way caused by eating chocolates…
Type 2 and 1 completely different things…
Kids that are getting diabetes due to poor diet etc, it’s not juvenile, it’s type 2.
