    Considering that Japan has a word that specifically means “death from overwork” (Karōshi), that sort of “work ethic” isn’t necessarily something to admire.

    I don’t know about Finland though…

    It could be worse.
    A Commissioner from a racehorse breeding association could be appointed head of FEMA based on his friendship with the President’s campaign manager. That would be really terrible.
    Oh, wait…

    If you go back to some of the earliest written descriptions of unicorns, they were clearly describing a rhinoceros. It was only later that it became a horse with a horn.

    My father is the embodiment of the Mark Twain quote:
    “Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I’ve done it thousands of times.”
    He’s in his early 70s and has been smoking since he was about 13. Every time he quits, it last for a year, at most.
    The most recent was a few years ago, after he developed cancerous lesions on his vocal cords. He went through radiation treatment, made a full recovery, and quit smoking. For a while.
    Then one day he noticed the California Proposition 65 warning on an aerosol product that he uses in his woodworking: “WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer.”
    He then said “Hey, I’ll bet this is what caused my cancer, not the cigarettes” and started smoking again.
    Truly addicted.

    The Wakefield study is a prime example of that.
    The original source of the “link” between vaccines and autism, Dr. Andrew Wakefield performed the study while employed by a law firm that was preparing to launch a class action lawsuit against vaccine manufacturers.
    That’s not even getting into the all but nonexistent test protocols and the doctored results…

    A lot of it can be traced back to the wide-spread introduction of “Stranger Danger” public service announcements and “education” programs, convincing parents and children that there are kidnappers and perverts lurking behind every bush, waiting for an opportunity. This ignores that fact that the vast majority of abductions and molestations are committed by someone the child already knows.
    There was one case of a lost 11-year-old Scout who avoided rescue searchers because he was afraid they wanted to ‘steal him’.

    Note the date on the comic. It was still the Sears Tower when this comic was written.

    It reminds me of one of Jeff Dunham’s routines.
    Two of his dumies are having a conversation in Spanish and he tells them that he feels left out when they do that because he doesn’t speak Spanish. Both dummies do a double take and one of them looks out at the audience and starts singing the Twilight Zone theme.

    For a long time, that was the main tactic of the Church of Scientology. Whenever someone would publicly criticize them the CoS would start launching multiple law suits against them. Even if they lost, the target would eventually go broke from the legal fees, while the CoS had virtually unlimited resources from decades of bilking their usually rich members out of huge amounts of money.
