Causes

Random fact: "facetious" is one of the only English words to feature all the vowels in the order AEIOU. "Abstemious" is another. Anyway, just a little word about the links under "fatuous and facetious": not all are completely facetious. The "34 Million Friends Project" is a fundraising project to help raise money for the United Nations Population Fund after the US government withdrew its financial support (for a loss of $34 million, hence the name). Give a buck or two - help increase access to family planning and reproductive health services throughout the world. (Note: money doesn't go to abortions, but to programmes such as healthcare to reduce infant mortality.)
