Today we learned about the dangers of the diet involving the hormone hCG, which is found in pregnant ladies' pee.

Hellionraiser doesn't recommend it:

Don't do it ladies!! hCG caused me to be constantly hungry and gain loads of weight while I was on it and made me super over-emotional. ( I did drop some weight finally after about, oh, 9 months or so but only about 8 lbs each time....) 10 years later, I am still experiencing side effects such as sleeplessness, irritability, irrational thoughts and sharp pains in the feet (g-damn Lego). The side effects just aren't worth it, and I have been told they could last for the rest of my life!!!11!!

As you've probably noticed, we're changing the Comment of the Day format a bit. From now on we'll only be highlighting one comment per day, so that user can claim all the bragging rights. We'd still like you to submit nominations to the Comment of the Day tag page. Just send the outstanding comment's URL and tag your nomination #cotd. (Replying to a comment with "#cotd" does not work.)


Use #trollpatrol to report comments that you feel the editors/mods should be aware of. Try not to respond to/approve/promote trollish comments in the threads — instead, just post the comment on the #trollpatrol page, the same way you'd post a comment on #groupthink or on the #cotd page, and the editors/mods will take care of it.
