Here’s an official government piece of advice from a real life government agency- “You’re a goner if a zombie bites you.”
That’s actually a quote taken from the official website of the Center for Disease Control. Yesterday, the CDC got the most web hits in the history of its existence. Why? Because, as a lark, they posted a blog listing about surving the “Zombie Apocalypse.”
Naturally, duct tape is at the top of the zombie survival guide list.
Cases of AIDS in the Boise, Idaho area have doubled over the last five years. HIV infections in the same period of time are up 50%. This has the local health department so concerned that they are starting a campaign to “initiate a public conversation” about risky sexual behavior.
The health department expressed its concern about the practice of “complete strangers meeting in public places for anonymous sex.” (Yes, there’s an app for that. Watch the video in this story.) Meanwhile, KTVB TV, the local NBC affiliate, focused their own investigation on adult book stores in the Boise area. Apparently, along with the rest rooms at public parks, rest areas and Boise State University bathroom stalls, the peep show rooms at adult book stores are the preferred destination for anonymous sexual hookups.
Channel 7 sent a producer “undercover” with a hidden camera into Boise area adult book stores. In a “matter of minutes” the producer was propositioned for anonymous sex through a GLORY HOLE at one of the adult book stores.
WANT THAT KARDASHIANESQUE ASS THAT MEN LOVE?
The next time a woman asks you, “Do these jeans make my butt look big?” you may want to answer, “Yes!”
The British tabloid The Sun has gotten a lot of mileage out of a story this weekend that reveals thousands of women in Europe are take “chicken fattening pills” to make their butts bigger. According to The Sun,
‘Women are so desperate for a bigger bottom they are risking their lives by taking pills designed to fatten up chickens.”
The pills are called an “herbal supplement.” In reality, many of the pills may contain animal hormones that have been linked to breast cancer and liver disease when used by humans.
Believe it or not the following story is absolutely true.
Scientists in England say they have developed a cell phone application that will allow anyone to put a sample of urine on a computer chip, plug that chip into a mobile phone and find out within minutes if you have a sexually transmitted disease.
The cell phone app is targeting Britain’s young people who have had an explosion in their rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea.
JENNY MCCARTHY AND SON
This would be why you shouldn’t receive your medical advice from Playboy centerfolds. For YEARS, Jenny McCarthy has been the most vocal anti-vaccine spokesperson in the world. McCarthy had claimed (despite all evidence to the contrary) that childhood vaccines had caused her young son’s autism.
Now in a stunning article in Time magazine, it’s revealed that McCarthy’s son NEVER had autism in the first place. It turns out the boy had been misdiagnosed and really has a rare neurological disorder. Fortunately, the child is getting better and no longer displays any signs of autism. However, McCarthy has not apologized for her misdirected zealotry against having children vaccinated. Even if she did, APOLOGY NOT ACCEPTED.
How many thousands and thousands of children have developed childhood diseases because their idiot mothers saw Jenny McCarthy on Oprah or some other show and refused to get them vaccinated? We’ll never know. What IS known is the CDC literally called McCarthy “a menace to public health.”
A blogger is in trouble for a Valentine’s Day post he wrote suggesting buying your loved one a cigar or other smokes as a long term cure for obesity.
“Maggie’s Farm” suggests:
“A good cigar, which lasts at least quadruple the time of a Wendy’s burger (450 calories), has zero calories and quadruple the enjoyment.”
The blogger tells children (not so tongue-in-cheek) to avoid vegetables because “they’re for adults,” but go ahead and smoke since it’s “organic.” This isn’t exactly a new concept. The Lucky Strike Diet was touted in 1930’s advertising. Smoking has been presented as an alternative to teenage obesity both in popular culture and medical journals.
“Maggie’s Farm” also called a woman with a cigar “sexy.”
TONY GALEA: TIGER WOODS’ DOCTOR TIED TO PED’S
A Canadian doctor who has treated golfer Tiger Woods and many of the world’s top athletes has been arrested after being linked to performance- enhancing drugs. The Toronto office of Dr. Tony Galea was raided in October after his assistant was caught at the U.S.-Canadian border trying to smuggle illegal performance-enhancing drugs into the country. The assistant was carrying human growth hormone and Actovegin (which is essentially strained, concentrated calves blood.)
Meanwhile, the New York Daily News ran a story linking Galea’s partner, chiropractor Mark Lindsay, to the disgraced company BALCO. Lindsay treated Tim Montgomery and Marion Jones-two athletes who went to prison for using illegal performance-enhancing drugs or lying to the FBI about using PED’s. Lindsay also has ties to other BALCO athletes such as former NFL player and supended drug user Bill Romanowski.
The New York Times also ran a story today linking Tiger Woods’ doctor, Galea, to performance-enhancing drugs. In fact, the Times article notes that Galea injects himself with human growth hormone five times a week. Galea even credits HGH for being able to keep a wife 20 years younger than himself. HGH is legal in Canada. The PGA has started drug testing players for performance-enhancing substances and made their first player suspension last month.
