"Mr. Chairman, I am against all foreign aid, especially to places like Hawaii and Alaska," says Senator Fussmussen from the floor of a cartoon Senate in 1962. In the visitors' gallery, Russian agents Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale are deciding whether to use their secret "Goof Gas" gun to turn the Congress stupid, as they did to all the rocket scientists and professors in the last episode of "Bullwinkle."

Another senator wants to raise taxes on everyone under the age of 67. He, of course, is 68. Yet a third stands up to demand, "We've got to get the government out of government!" The Pottsylvanian spies decide their weapon is unnecessary: Congress is already ignorant, corrupt and feckless.

Hahahahaha. Oh, Washington.

Sperm quality has been a subject of much debate within the scientific community, particularly since a landmark 1992 paper that found that average sperm counts had halved in men without a history of infertility between 1940 and 1990.

Studies have implicated everything from exposure to laptops to sitting in a hot tub as possible hazards that could diminish sperm count or affect their ability to swim and, in turn, reduce men's fertility.

According to a new study, not only is the quality of sperm declining, but so is the quantity, at least in Western men. The study found that, between 1973 and 2011, the sperm count of men from Western countries declined by more than 50 percent -- and the trend does not appear to be stopping.

A sane society would look at what happened in Vegas and make it much harder to obtain guns and gun tech that can fire so many bullets so fast.

America is not the only country in the world with firearms. Read recently that there are 200 million AK 47's in the world right now. That's 1 fully automatic firing weapon for every 35 people on earth.

Add in the 30+ countries that have multiple weapon manufacturers within their borders and it makes for a whole lot of guns in the world.

So trying to make America a 'safe space' while not maintaining our borders seems foolish to me. Those that want to do harm with a gun will find a way to obtain them.

The LV shooter had enough resources to have purchased AK 47s from the Philippines if he had wanted to.
That begs the question, why did he wire $100 k to the island while his girlfriend was there?
