What do you do when you find something, not only unexpected, but dead in your food–that which you need to sustain life? The first thing you must do is get the dead stuff out, and then figure out what else is tainted because of it. Sometimes you must throw out more than you desire, but that’s the only choice if you want to get rid of the dead stuff completely. On this episode of The Axiom Amnesia Theory, Heit & Cheri talk about a woman who literally found a dead toad in her beans, and whole lot more…
Topics discussed include a new study reporting that people who like rapper Lil Wayne are basically “stupid”, stereotypes involved in the assumptions about music tastes, Drake’s “Started from the Bottom” being some lowest common denominator type of music, a woman finding a whole dead toad in her can of green beans, dried grasshoppers as a delicacy, video of a woman digging things out of her butt and then eating it, making homemade ice cream, eating moldy foods, a UFO website making the claim that the Boston bombers were radicalized by the Axiom Amnesia website and Facebook page, the FDA appealing the ruling that all women 15 years and older shall have access to Plan B birth control over the counter, Netflix reportedly cutting 2K movies from their service, South Dakota having difficulty renaming places with offensive names, and more!

- A new study that says that people who like rapper Lil Wayne are basically “stupid”.
According to a recent study, Lil Wayne fans are as dumb as a rock. If you enjoy Beyonce and T.I., you’re not too far behind. If you listen to Beethoven, you’re practically a genuis.
Data for the study was gathered from Facebook. The study’s author found kids from different colleges across the US, and compared their favorite music to the average SAT scores from those schools. According to the results, Lil Wayne fans had the lowest SAT score at 876, giving his fans the dreaded title of “dumbest fans,” while fans bands like Radiohead, Counting Crows and singer Sufjan Stevens ranked in the 1200s. Fans of Beethoven ranked the highest at 1376. A perfect SAT score is 1600.
- Discussion about the stereotypes involved in the assumptions about music tastes.
- Discussion about the Drake’s “Started from the Bottom” being some lowest common denominator type of music.
- Our whole lives are patterns, this is why repetitive beats and music make you want to repeat them. This is why the Pink Panthere Theme being one of the best theme songs ever.
- Lil Wayne has surpassed Elvis on the charts, but you’re stupid if you listen to him.
- Lil Wayne also had another seizure a few days ago.
- Discussion about a woman finding a whole dead toad in her can of green beans.
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. — When checking the St. Joseph County Health Department complaint reports, what turned up in some foods at local stores was surprising. The most disturbing case concerns a can of green beans – and what one family found inside will keep them from ever eating canned green beans again.
“We eat a lot of green beans, we do, we did. Nobody wants anymore now,” said Gloria Chubb of South Bend.
Chubb, a retired nurse’s aide, is disgusted by what she served up at the dinner table.
“It was meatloaf, mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans,” said Chubb.
It was what was in the can of Meijer green beans that made them both lose their appetite.
“My son put some on his plate and said, ‘What is that?’ I thought maybe it was a piece of moldy bacon or something– because they have bacon in them sometimes,” said Chubb. “I and I took it out of there and it wasn’t moldy bacon, it was a toad with parts of his little legs all in the green beans. Other than that he was fully intact.”
The St. Joseph County Health Department took pictures of the toad.
Chubb alerted the department because she wants to warn others who may be in a rush like she was that day.
“I didn’t see it when I dumped it- I didn’t see it at all until after I cooked it in the microwave,” said Chubb. “I was sick, nauseated for two days, and I don’t think I’ll have green beans anytime soon.”
Chubb took her unopened cans back to Meijer and they gave her a refund.
She took the toad and the two questionable cans of beans to the health department.
- What should a person receive for having to endure a toad in their green beans? The company gave the woman $50–as if that was enough for the pain and suffering!
- There are dead animals in frozen food too! Even if you don’t see them in your can, they might have gotten ingot that batch…
- Discussion about dried grasshoppers as a delicacy.
- Discussion about video of a woman digging things out of her butt and then eating it.
- Discussion about peoples’ toothbrushes getting contaminated by flushing the toilet.
- There is no way to be completely germ-free.
- Discussion about eating moldy food.
- Discussion about homemade ice cream. How is it made exactly?
- Discussion about a UFO website making the claim that the Boston bombers were radicalized by the Axiom Amnesia website and Facebook page. How crazy is that?!?
- Discussion about the FDA appealing the ruling that all women 15 years and older shall have access to Plan B birth control over the counter.
The Justice Department filed notice late Wednesday that it will challenge a federal court decision requiring the government to make emergency contraceptives available over the counter to women of all ages.
The move came hours after the Food and Drug Administration approved over-the-counter sales of emergency contraceptives to women 15 and older. Previously, Plan B was available to teenagers younger than 17 only with a prescription. Older women had to request it from a pharmacist.
The Obama administration also asked the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of New York to stay Judge Edward Korman’s early-April ruling, which is set to take effect Sunday.
The administration’s challenge will no doubt reignite a debate over whether young teens should be eligible to obtain emergency contraception without a doctor’s consent, a politically fraught issue that has vexed two presidential administrations and led to the resignation of multiple FDA officials.
“We are deeply disappointed that just days after President Obama proclaimed his commitment to women’s reproductive rights, his administration has decided once again to deprive women of their right to obtain emergency contraception without unjustified and burdensome restrictions,” Center for Reproductive Rights President Nancy Northup, whose organization represents the defendants, said in a statement.
In federal court documents, the Justice Department argued that Korman overstepped his authority in ordering the FDA to make emergency contraceptives available to all women over the counter.

- The underlying issue is whether or not girls as young as 15 should be allowed to access medication without parental consent, although the argument put forth doesn’t mention this.
- If a child is mature enough to consent to sex, then they should be able to consent to all things related to reproduction.
- Should parents be notified if their child is seeking health care?
- Mention of the song “Brenda’s Got A Baby” by 2Pac.
- You don’t need a “brain” to follow primal urges to have sex.
- Some day they will have pills that quell the urge to have sex–chemical castration. It will probably be available at The Venus Project’s resourced-based economy utopia. Haha!
- Discussion about Netflix reportedly cutting 2K movies from their service.
- Discussion about South Dakota trying to change places with offensive names.
South Dakota is finding it difficult to change time-worn names of locations that are seen as offensive by African-Americans and Native Americans, such as “Negro” and “squaw” creeks, canyons and mountain ridges.
The state issued a plea this month for public assistance in renaming five geographic features. The five are part of a total of 18 sites that include the word “squaw” or “Negro” in their names and have been designated by the legislature as needing renaming.
But some of the replacement names suggested by the South Dakota Board of Geographic Names have been rejected by an obscure federal body called the U.S. Board on Geographic Names.
“It is hard for us to come up with a good name,” said June Hansen, a member of the South Dakota Board of Geographic Names. Tops on the list for renaming are places known for decades as “Negro Wool Ridge” and “Negro Gulch,” landmarks that in their early history were known by a different “n” word, said Hansen.
An effort to rename Negro Creek to Medicine Mountain Creek failed to garner approval of the federal body, for instance.
“There is some pretty strict criteria for what the name has to be,” said Hansen.
The federal board says that names should center on local history, folklore, events or natural aspects of the area, and says names cannot duplicate others attached to geographic features in South Dakota or nearby states.
