Should Genetically Modified Food Be Clearly Labeled As Such? — Survey of the Day

Although there has never been any data definitively linking genetically modified food to health problems, many scientists and nutritionists worry that messing with the genetic makeup of food could have adverse effects on the environment and the people who eat it.

In light of this, Californians will be voting on a Proposition 37 this November, which would require special labels on all genetically modified food.

Do MLB Managers Get Fired Too Quickly? — Sports Survey of the Day

Major League Baseball's regular season is in the books. We move on to the postseason now, but first a quick look back.

It's safe to say that many people thought that Bobby Valentine's employment as manager of the Red Sox would be terminated at some point soon. Management wasted no time in doing so, firing him the day after the regular season ended.

10 Things We Wish Obama and Romney Had Debated — The Funnies

So how 'bout that debate? Obama and Romney put on their best I-hope-undecided-voters-like-this-color ties and then didn't even have the courtesy to commit any major gaffes for all of us to mock.

It's time that these topics are brought to the forefront of American politics, one way or another, so here are 10 things we wish to see Obama and Romney debate:

What’s a Boilermaker, and What Does It Have to Do With Purdue?

Have you even been watching a University of Purdue football or basketball game and found yourself wondering what their nickname, the Boilermakers, means?

According to legend, the nickname dates back to the late-19th century when the school perennially routed nearby Wabash College at football, and Wabash supporters wound up hurling derogatory names at their competition. The town began calling the Purdue team things like "a great big burly gang of corn-huskers," "rail-splitters," "foundry molders" and "log-haulers."

The 5 Most Questionable Calls in NFL History

By now, even non-football fans have heard about the officiating debacle in last night's showdown between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks (just check your Facebook feed). Facing a 12-7 deficit with just seconds left to play, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson rolled out of the pocket and threw a desperation heave into the end zone, resulting in a game-clinching interception for the Packers.

Except it wasn't. Instead, the NFL's much-maligned replacement officials inexplicably ruled the play a touchdown for the Seahawks, ignoring an obvious offensive pass-interference penalty and cementing the phrase "simultaneous catch" into the lexicon of poor sports officiating.

This screw-up will, hopefully, lead to the return of the real refs—but let's not forget that they too have made their share of awful calls over the years. Here's a look at some of the NFL's most controversial officiating decisions:
