i was looking for a punchline as i was reading through this. can people really be that narrow minded? that's a pretty dehumanizing view of iraqis like they're some kind of primitive species on national geographic. i just dont understand the logic on how a group of people can examine another group of people they see as inferior and then say "hey look at that...they're almost like real people like us"

What you've said is better than any punchline. I think the University of North Carolina School of Public Health should be thoroughly investigated to see if they've a working brain cell between the lot of them, and then closed down.

jumping onions, it's a comedy site. all the news on the site mocks the regular news.

there was no study.

next person to post about the atrocities of this study without reading my posts stating that The Onion is a satirical site and that the study isn't real, is going to come down with a serious case of bad karma, in the form of dead cats falling on them whenever they leave their home.

it's ok. there have been others who have done this with The Onion and other satirical sites. There's currently one about ufos leaving massive wakes in the clouds. There was one about penguins a while back from the same mock eco-friendly site.

and I promise you, after all of your posts and mine, someone will post about how wrong this study is and how the group should be jailed or punished.
