Beer. The Greatest Liquid Ever?

In Alcohol, Beer, health, Life, Odd News, The Crazy News, World News on November 3, 2007 at 12:19 am

Forget after exercise energy drinks, those so called fast hydrating fluids, for goodness sake, forget water! Forget everything you were ever taught in regards to the consumption of liquids.

The best thing you can do to overcome that well earned, well desired, thrist….is down yourself a bottle of fresh beer.

Yes, beer. B-E-E-R.

A dedicated team of Spanish scientist from Granada University said drinking beer after strenuous physical activity can be beneficial for the body. Yes, I repeat. Drinking a beer after physical activity can be BENEFICIAL for the body, even more so than water. Yes, BETTER THAN WATER! H2o baby!

Reports UPI.com

Professor Manuel Garzon, who led the study, said the bubbles in beer can help quench thirst and the carbohydrates in the beverage can help make up for burned calories.

The study involved a group of students asked to perform strenuous activities at a temperature of about 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Half of the students were given a pint of beer after their exercise and half were given a pint of water. Garzon said the hydration affect on the beer drinkers was “slightly better” than the sober group.

Juan Antonio Corbalan, a cardiologist who has worked with Real Madrid football players and Spain’s national basketball team, told The Telegraph he has long recommended beer to professional sportsmen after exhausting activities, as the drink is optimal for rehydrating the body.

If ever you needed a better excuse. If ever!

You can get it any old how…..

As a matter of fact. I’ve got it now…..

Yeah baby!

Watch out ladies, err and ah gents, amid all the current stock market turmoil and uncertainty, shares in British condom maker Futura Medical have ballooned to new heights with expectations the company’s new CSD500 condom will revolutionise the male sexual experience, media reports.

How exciting!

“I am delighted by these highly statistically significant study results, which give us confidence that the CSD500 product will gain marketing approval and, once launched, be a commercial success,” the chief executive, James Barder, said.

A statement on the company web site details how the revolutionary condom will work, touting an amazing Viagra like ability to allow for maximum pleasure for both sexual partners. Human trials on 108 healthy couples recently came to a climax.

The new product will “incorporate an erectogenic compound to help men maintain a full erection during intercourse…a pharmacological dose contained within the teat of the condom will be delivered to the penis.

“This will result in increased local blood flow which in turn should lead to improved rigidity, tumescence and duration of an erection.”

The “pharmacological dose” they speak of is a chemical compound called glyceryl trinitrate, otherwise known as nitroglycerin, a chemical most famous for its use in explosives. Yes, explosives.

Talk about more bang for your buck!

It is used in other medical products, primarily for its ability to widen blood vessels.

Shares did a roaring trade after the announcement,  skyrocketing 14.5 percent, just shy of a whopping 60 British pounds. Oh behave!

“We expect to get regulatory EU approval later this year and then it is a question of launching the product soon after, so the revenues are really going to hit us in 2008,” the CEO of the company moaned.

Market research had shown that “up to 80 percent of existing condom users would be interested in trying the product and, more importantly, 49 percent of non-condom users would be interested in using it as it will help them maintain an erection.” Yeah, baby!

The amazing new condom will be marketed by SSL International under the Durex brand.

I just can’t wait, till 2008! There’s nothing like increased blood flow, nothing!

Right ladies?

Right!

I’m sure all the man loving ladies of England will be happy with this product, especially if TV comedy Family Guy’s version of high class British porn rings true….

Well done, indeed!

Fat Cat! Pets start developing same diseases as their owners in record numbers.

In 2007, animals, Cats, europe, health, pets, UK on August 7, 2007 at 7:32 pm

Where’s my lasagna biatch!

In the true spirit of Garfield, pet cats in the UK are starting to get the same diseases as their owners, relishing on the lazy 21st century western lifestyle.

“The lifestyle of cats, just like their owners, is changing. They are tending to eat too much, gain weight and take less exercise. Unfortunately, just like people, cats will overeat if they are offered too much tasty food, particularly if they are bored and have little else to do.

“While cats would naturally exercise outside, many cats are now house-bound — perhaps because they live in a flat or because their owners feel that it is too dangerous to let them out — so they have little to do all day but eat, sleep, and gain weight,” said Professor Danielle Gunn-Moore from the University of Edinburgh.

The fattening of the UK population of cats parralels that of the human population and has led to a sharp rise in the cases of diabetes in felines.

Among the breeds, Burmese cats are three times more likely to develop the disease.

Tips for all you cat keepers in having a healthy pet cat include:

Choose a healthy, natural cat food

Lots of foods are full of artificial additives, sugars and cereals and not enough meat. Look for natural dry foods with at least 26 per cent meat and wet foods that have more than 80 per cent meat

Feed the correct amount

Follow the guidelines on the packaging rather than just feeding to your cat’s appetite

Small regular meals

Don’t leave food down all day. Instead, give your cat small regular meals when it is hungry

Avoid titbits and treats

Leftovers tend to be very fatty and treats are usually rich in sugars, so avoid letting your cat snack between meals

Make your cat work for its food

Rather than serve the food openly in a dish, hide it. You can buy specially designed toys in which to hide dry or wet foods, or you can improvise Exercise

Introduce exercise gradually

If you have a fat cat it will need to be eased into it. Cats are not like dogs. There are no set targets and you cannot force them to exercise

Playtime

Rubber balls, a ball of wool or any toy with catnip in it should really get them going. Activity centres with scratching posts and hanging toys are a good way of interesting them in exercise

Walkies

You can buy harnesses to take your cat out for a walk. It is not for every cat, but some will benefit

 Hey, after all that, maybe even you can get in shape just like your pet cat.

Is too much sex bad for the economy?

Let’s talk about sex!

 lets_talk_about_sex_ver2.jpg

A study released this week by a German researcher, interviewing 32,000 men and women, has come to two basic conclusions.

“The less sex you have, the more work you seek”, and those who are not getting any action “often take on more commitments and work.”

Or in the words of the studies author, Ragnar Beer of the University of Göttingen:

“Sexual frustration prevents you from being able to reduce your stress”

“One commonly takes on obligations out of sexual frustration that aren’t easy to let go of, like leadership positions in a club, for instance. That takes away from the time spent on the relationship, which again negatively contributes to sexual satisfaction. Unobserved, the frustration often becomes deeply ingrained.”

Beer’s team found that 36 percent of men and 35 percent of women who have sex only once a week take on extra work to compensate for their wanting sex life. It’s even worse for the hapless couples who have altogether lost their eye for one another. Forty-five percent of men and 46 percent of women who no longer have sex with their partner seek out other activities to salve their wanting libidos.

So, you could conclude that the more active participants in an economy getting no or little sex, the more productive that nation’s economy would be.

How could economic policy makers use this information to their advantage?

I blog, you decide.

Meanwhile….

In other studies of sex related news…

A world-wide study on women’s sexual satisfaction has found that Saudi Arabian women were the most sexually fulfilled, followed by Mexican, Spanish, Italian and Venezuelan women.

The survey of more than 14,000 women from 14 countries showed 76 per cent of women overall valued sex, while 89 per cent of men rated it important or very important.

How nice.

Now, lets talk about sex…

Quick, watch it before Universal records deletes it!
