Let’s be honest here, the whole idea that Margarine was more healthy than butter was based on theoretical science of the time. It was wrong, but not fraudulently wrong. Same thing with eggs and cholesterol.  A scientist is not fraudulent if they are simply wrong.

At some point, the “Scientists” brainwashed my mom into believing that margarine was healthier than butter, so she fed us shitty trans fat instead of delicious butter. Read more

Worth submitting on. I was hesitant due to the final check box that my email will be shared with them and their partners, but if that is the reason I wont try and get $1,000 to spend on my local mainstreet, then that makes me a selfish person.

About fifteen years ago, on a Mother’s Day, a woman in my apartment complex said “Happy Mother’s day!” to me. I replied, “Oh, I won’t be having children.” She smiled at me and said “That’s ok because ALL women are mothers whether, they have their own or not Read more

Don’t lie.
That will get you into trouble.

Just figure out a more beneficial way to calculate the number.

Don’t put a fake number, just don’t list it. If they really care, they can ask. You can then have a discussion around why they think it’s important, and point to more recent successes in your work history. False info on a CV is a big no no.

My son was so distressed when I told him I was an alien, because my birth certificate lists a gas giant planet as my birthplace. It’s because it also happened to be the name of the town where I was born, but I told him my birth certificate said I was from <planet>, and he absolutely freaked the fuck out, to the point Read more

When I was very young my Mom had me convinced that she always knew when I was lying. Consequently I didn’t do it.
