Leading Cause of Death in the US/UK: Being a Rock Star Over 45? 5 votes / 5 Stars With the recent deaths of notable rock and roll celebrities like David Bowie and Glenn Frey, and the repeated news of deaths from the music community on a daily basis, many musicians are starting to ask questions.  The most common question is some variant of ‘WTF is going on with musicians?’ The fervor started with the death of Long John Hunter on the 4th of January, and hasn’t let up since.  We’ve lost such notables as Lemmy Kilminster, Dan Hicks, Maurice White, Paul Katner, and the aforementioned Bowie and Frey.  The first two months of 2016 have been horrible for music lovers everywhere. ...

New Marijuana Game, Smokémon, Killing Kids

New Marijuana Game, Smokémon, Killing Kids 11 votes / 5 Stars With widespread acceptance of marijuana culture and use, a new danger has arisen for children.  Like college kids and frat houses love their drinking games, it was only a matter of time before a smoking game caught on.  The game is called Smokémon, and it’s a lot like a trading card game, only with actual marijuanas.  We all know that marijuanas kill most of the people who use them, and that’s what makes this game so difficult to talk about. The game works using the strain names on leafly.com.  If a player has a sample (called a nug) of the strain on the card, he can use the card.  The more ...

Spit-Talkers: Annoyance, or Public Health Menace?

Spit-Talkers: Annoyance, or Public Health Menace? 4 votes / 5 Stars Some people spit when they talk.  To those of us who don’t, it’s an annoyance, especially considering the number of times we need to make excuses to end conversations quickly or avoid conversation altogether.  Hiding behind the annoyance factor, is something far more sinister.  Spit, as it turns out, is really, really nasty. Human saliva is full of all manner of bacteria.  In fact, there are typically between 500 and 650 different species of bacteria in the average human mouth.  If one were to scrape all the plaque in the average mouth off the teeth, there would be in the neighborhood of 20 billion microbes in it.  ‘Billion’ is ...

Scientists Recommend Easing Back Into Work After Holidays

Scientists Recommend Easing Back Into Work After Holidays 5 votes / 5 Stars No one likes work.  Even those people who tell you they love what they do.  They hate work more than the rest of us, they’ve just deluded themselves into believing that they don’t.  Those people also like boy bands, have tattoos of cartoon characters, respond to penis enlargement emails, and probably still drink wine coolers.  People especially hate returning to work after a holiday break or a vacation.  Now scientists believe jumping back in after a break is harmful to your health.  Dr. Lucy Rogers, behavioral psychologist at the University of Washington Social and Behavioral institute weighed in on the subject. Work stress is like a spring.  It ...

Susan G. Komen Declares War On Pink… Salt?

Susan G. Komen Declares War On Pink… Salt? 5 votes / 5 Stars The Susan G. Komen Foundation is making a Trump-esque play for all things pink. It claims ownership of the color and the word, and has decided to take to the courts in an effort to make known its intentions.  Spokesperson Mili Rosales, director of legal affairs for the foundation, informed us of the reasons for the move. Ever since we started the pink ribbon campaign, it’s been known that all things pink are related to the campaign against breast cancer.  Breast cancer kills far too many, and use of the color pink should be specifically for those victims. They have targeted all the brands and organizations who ...

Cheap Chinese Eucharist Carcinogenic, Catholics Upset

Cheap Chinese Eucharist Carcinogenic, Catholics Upset 3 votes / 5 Stars BRAINTREE, Massachusetts – The holy sacrament of the Eucharist is as much a part of the Catholic lifestyle as shaking hands during the Peace segment of Mass, but we’ve recently discovered that not all communion wafers are the same.  The vast majority of wafers used in churches and ministries throughout the US, Australia, Canada, Britain and now West Africa are made by a single company.  The Cavanagh Company in Greenville, RI manufactures full 80% of the communion wafers used in the above listed countries.  They’re described as tasting more like bread than their competition, making them arguably the best tasting Body of Christ available.  Recently, however, some less expensive newcomers ...

Popular Music and Ear Safety

Popular Music and Ear Safety 4 votes / 5 Stars The ability to hear for many is considered the most valuable of the senses. To hear the voice of a loved one or a favorite tune can lead to a wide array of emotions and feelings. To hear the sound of danger can save a life or alert us to trouble in the middle of the night. The sounds of the birds in the morning or the crisp falling water of a waterfall can relax or soothe the greatest beasts within us all. Most of us would do anything to protect and preserve our hearing from anything that could cause harm. Recent research from Potuncky University in Rawtland Hills, Kentucky ...

Hand Washing: Statistics Say, Don’t Shake Hands With Steve

Hand Washing: Statistics Say, Don’t Shake Hands With Steve 6 votes / 5 Stars We all know Steve. For all intents and purposes, he is a nice guy. He is a father, husband, friend, and son, but he has a dark, twisted secret. There is a sinister compulsion built into nearly every Steve that many of us know, but none of us ever talk about. Steve is not a hand washer. How many times have you watched Steve walk out of the restroom without washing his hands? If you are like the rest of us the answer is likely, every time. In a recent survey on hand washing practices we found that 30% of respondents admitted to using the restroom ...

Bad Grammar Linked to Silly, Accidental Deaths 4 votes / 5 Stars ACCIDENT, Maryland- A recent study by the Life Insurance Actuarial Research Society in Accident, Maryland has shown a startling link between poor grammar and the type of death and injury that most people find hilarious.  In recently collected insurance industry statistics, most silly deaths and injuries were suffered by people who seldom use punctuation, or confuse ‘to,’ ‘too’ and ‘two.’  Life insurance actuarial scientists have begun to develop a more clear picture of how the new data can be used to adjust premiums, as well as life expectancy charts.  Amanda Slaughter, and actuarial scientist with the society spoke with us about the recent findings.
