Harvard scientists released the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer. Men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption. The theory is that beer contains female hormones (hops contain phytoeostrogens) and that by drinking enough beer, men turn into women.To test the theory, 100 men were fed 8 pints of beer each within a 1-hour period.
It was then observed that 100% of the test subjects:
Hey, when you think of Groundhog Day, what comes to mind? Bill Murray?Or this little guy?
At this time of year you probably think of the little ball of fur. But any other time, I'm sure it's the movie, starring Bill Murray that comes to mind. And that's fine. I'm with you. After all, the damn little rodent is a poseur. Yep, that's right, everybody thinks he knows what he's doing but it turns out he's wrong more than he's right. Here's what the day is all about...
But a Canadian study (leave it to those Canucks) conducted over 30 to 40 years showed that for nearly two-thirds of those years the groundhogs' forecasts turned out to be wrong. That's right, either they were contrary to what they should have been, or winter dragged on its normal duration. Groundhogs across the nation had a dismal record of being right about 37% of the time. For shame. No wonder they've been the subject of ridicule.
Newsworld's CBC Morning spent all morning making one of these. Thanks to The Presurfer for hunting down the recipe. This is more bacon than anyone would want to eat in one sitting, let alone 4 quarters of Sunday's Superbowl.
I knew this lady was influential but wow! She hosts the most-viewed talk show in the universe. She helped put a presidential candidate on the map. She's dropped and gained more pounds than Jabba the Hut. But perhaps what she's best known for is inventing a word. Yep, that's right. How many people do you know have actually invented a word?
It is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are over-sensitive, and there's nothing worse than an over-sensitive woman. My name is Jim. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife, Peggy. When I retired a few years ago, it became necessary for Peggy to get a full-time job along with her part-time job, both for extra income and for the health benefits that we needed. Shortly after she started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age. I usually get home from the golf club about the same time she gets home from work and although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the Men's G…
As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang. Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, "Herman, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on 280Interstate. Please be careful!""It's not just one car," said Herman. "It's hundreds of them!"merci Ruth
Sad News With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week. Larry LaPrise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in... And then the trouble started.
Well, I thought that was pretty funny. So I went to Wikipedia (sorry Hindleyite) to search Larry Laprise. Turns out he died in 1996 and that friggin' joke's been puttin' it's right foot in on the internet ever since. Not only that, the origin of the "Hokey, Pokey" has long been in dispute.
