I have compiled an easy reference here for things that you should be scared of, currently.
1. Iran. Nukes? OMG.

2. All-Male Birth Control Panel
There is just something inherently wrong in a bunch of old dudes sitting around deciding what women get to do with their bodies. We need some chicas in there for balance and perspective, and these kinds of discussions should not be behind closed doors.
Get up to date:
Greece is at the forefront now. This is a big deal and something we need to be thinking about and planning for. I believe that the economies of the world are, for the most part, interrelated. So even though most consider this "Europe's problem," it is definitely worth our attention and should be viewed as a learning experience.
4. Pageant moms.
I don't watch the show(s) on this stuff, because it is just too much for my brain to handle and makes me want to call the law on some of these people, but my friend was kind enough to share this clip with me.
It will scare the shit out of you. Should this even be legal? I think an age restriction should be put on pageants, and a thorough interview conducted with the participants (without their parents) to ensure that they are doing it for the right reasons (i.e. not because Mom wants them to or they want to shake their preschool booties onstage).
