The Giants O line has needed serious help for about a decade, give or take a few years. I'd be surprised if the Giants didn't end up with the worst record in the league this year.

Of course, they will scrape out another win or two, to avoid getting the top draft picks. *shakes fist at the heavens*

Girl children are substantially less annoying than boy children.

Yeah, it's totally not annoying when my sons cousins (both girls) used to bully him (including punching him) and he'd come home and ask me why it's okay to stand up to bullies, but not okay to hit girls...

3rd and 2nd world, sure, girl children have a shit time of it for the most part and it deserves a lot of attention. First world? Girls are spoiled with advantages most boys will never have. Never getting called toxic because they had the fortune to be born with a vagina for example.

Google "International day of the boy child" sometime... This is the first thing that pops up:

International Men's Day is followed by Universal Children's Day on 20 November, forming a 48-hour celebration of men and children, respectively.

Then there's this...

http://internationalboysday.org/about-us/history/

Protecting the girl child is equally important. Some of us would be aware that since 2012, the United Nations marks 11 October as the “International Day of the Girl Child“. The obvious question is – why have we not dedicated a day that focuses on the Boy Child? We must not allow the continued imbalance of the gender scale. We cannot ignore that without a focus on both the boy child and the girl child, gender equality is not a reality.

And of course searching for day of the boy child inevitably brings up a few stories on the first page about day of the girl child... Equality yo!

First, cheese is extremely unhealthy, so eating less is a good thing.

Second, there's lots of good, real made in America cheese to eat that isn't processed "American" cheese like Kraft or Velveeta. Places like Jasper Hill farm, Vermont Creamery, Widmers, and a bunch of others have amazing cheese.

1. That's only true until they become teenagers. Then they flip.

2. Boy children are more likely to play video games with Dad.

I'll agree on the first three, I managed to miss the mac and cheese gene somehow. I've had it a couple of times, but basically only when it was the only choice. Like macaroni salad though...

Yeah, American isn't cheese. I live near Murray's Cheese, which is basically the cheese mecca, and spend way too much money on way too many kinds of cheese that I'll never remember having eaten but absolutely loved.

I do agree American does have its place, but very limited. As the article mentions (or another article mentioned), it melts in a way actual cheese can't. This can be desirable, as you guys mention, for grilled cheese. Or for a bare basics cheeseburger, as in, what you're throwing on the barbecue for a large group. But most of the time I'd prefer a grilled cheese with better cheese, and man, does gruyere taste really good on a burger sometimes.

Speaking of "cheese," I read an article the other day that said there are four things someone identified as being the core American food, in that it's eaten by the most people, including the pickiest. Chocolate chip cookies, french fries, fried chicken, Kraft Mac'n'cheese, Even as a kid I thought the Kraft stuff was gross. Same with nacho cheese. Cheese shouldn't be liquid at room temp!

Yeah, but why when you can use real cheddar?
It is the favor I expect from a grilled cheese sandwich. I'm not claiming it is the best cheese ever for a grilled cheese sandwich.

Yeah, but why when you can use real cheddar? It's like people who buy Annie's Mac'n'Cheese because it's "organic". And you can't just throw some milk, butter, and actual cheddar into some macaroni why?

Personally I eat a lot of different cheeses. Gruyere and Iberico being two of my faves. Some chevre now and then for sport. I like trying stuff I've never tried before, and there's so much of it out there it always boggles my mind that more people just keep eating the same ol' stuff all the time. Cheese plate with a few different kinds, some artisnal crackers, pear, apple, what have you, maybe some charcuterie...good times.

Not that I have kids this age, or kids at all, but anecdotally, when they become teens...

Nah. I know plenty of people who have both and complain long and loud about the female being the wild child while the male is a good child. I think on the whole however you're probably right. Might be which one came first. I've also noticed that. Wild child seems to be the first one and better behaved the second one when the parents have a better grip on how to parent.

Why is homeopathy even discussed in any journals? The 'experiments' are never comprehensive and always either use janky methodologies or poor reporting. There really should be a threshold of quality that is required for this sort of thing....
