As the title says I just had my first sale of an item on eBay. I had an old PS3 system that was only good for parts and instead of just sending it to the trash I decided to see if it would sell on eBay. Now I had never sold anything on there before and I was a bit apprehensive about the whole process by it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Thousands of people all over the world sell their stuff on eBay every day, how hard could it really be. I will say that there is a definite learning curve to the whole process and if you do not stop to think things through then you will run into problems like I almost did.
I’m so pumped that this happened today! What a wonderful opportunity to get the information out there and let the world know about the dangers of high fructose corn syrup, and all the other names it might have! Join in the fun at Twitter and check out all the great links to learn more about the science of the dangers of HFSC, and the natural recipes to avoid it. The technology and nature gods are working together. Let’s back them up!

We know it’s bad for us, and reading labels can only take you so far. Even now the labels are being altered, more so than the sticky goo itself, so those of us who knew what to look for don’t even see it. I made mention of the tricky labels in an earlier post. Today, courtesy of http://www.3fatchicks.com/, I bring you the reasons why we should boycott this nasty syrup, and why the European Union outlawed it years ago.
Reason #1: Increase in Bad (LDL) Cholesterol and Triglycerides
Typically, over-consuming sugar will result in metabolic hindrances. High fructose corn syrup causes a major increase in insulin and leptin resistance, two key factors that help metabolize food into energy. Your body will encounter increased levels of bad cholesterol because the metabolized sugar turns to fat, in turn elevating triglyceride levels, also known as fat storages.
Reason #2: Risk of Heart Attack and Heart Disease
Misfile is an online comic that is done by Chris Hazelton who has worked on many film productions including “End of Days“, “The Hurricane“, “Thirteen Days” and “Spy Game“. But this review is about the online comic itself and not that of Chris :) Misfile start as a teen is just waking up. Scratch that, I just looked again and see that it start with an argument in Heaven and an angel getting kicked out until they are called back. Then the kid wakes up rather confused. You see Ash, the main character in the story, went to sleep as a boy and the whole world knew him as a boy but now he is a she and with a rack to boot. Talk about confusion, you still have all the urges and desires of a male but now are stuck in the body of a female. Just as Ash is freaking out the angel that was kicked out shows up to explain that he is the reason ash is the way that he is. He also further explains that the entire world thinks Ash is a female and remember Ash as always being female. Can you just imagine waking up and being something totally drastically different then you went to sleep? Even the size of Ash’s feet and body have changed to where it makes things even more awkward. The author, Chris, dose a great job in telling the story and it shows.
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is one of my more favorite films. With Sean Connery as Allan Quatermain in it why wouldn’t it be. It also stars Naseeruddin Shah as Captain Nemo, Peta Wilson as Mina Harker, Tony Curran as Rodney Skinner (An Invisible Man), Stuart Townsend as Dorian Gray, Shane West as Tom Sawyer and Jason Flemyng as Dr. Henry Jekyll. To be honest I don’t remember seeing any of the other actors till I saw LXG, but then I actually had to look up the names, all except Connery, for this review. I know I have seen this film at least half a dozen times or more and is definitely one of the films I am always re-watching.
