Resveratrol = my hero.
A recent study has shown that Resveratrol, an ingredient in red wine may help treat fatty liver, associated with chronic alcohol abuse. Hah, ain’t that ironic… drink more to treat your problem of over drinking, makes sense to me.
The study apparently consisted on getting some mice wasted…giving the treatment group resveratrol and seeing how much fat was found in their livers afterwards.
Not too big of a fan of animal testing…but the end result is interesting.
Somebody is going home to drink a big glass of red wine! (that somebody is me)
We all know how rampant DUI’s can be. We all know many people that have them…especially if you live in the state of Arizona, where I believe more people than not do…due to the extremely strict DUI policies. But when it comes to strange DUI’s these really take the cake.
A man in Australia was arrested for drunk driving this week with a blood alcohol content of 0.31 (shouldn’t he be dead!?! That is six times over the legal limit!) and was so intoxicated that he fell asleep at the wheel…or shall I say controls, of a motorized wheel chair. Even better, it’s not like the man was on the sidewalk… he was in the turning lane of a major highway. Apparently other motorists were having to swerve to avoid him. Way to go champ, way to go!
Fun Fact: Other “vehicles” you can get a DUI with in Australia: Horses, bicycles, wheelchairs, and skateboards.
Oh Alaska, home of the rugged wilderness… and 20-year-old men starved for something, anything to do. In North Pole, Alaska this week, police received calls about a drunken man serving through lawns. The high, i mean slow, speed chase lasted for 200 feet at speeds of up to 5 mph! Poor Wyatt Lewis had a BAC of 0.18 (over twice the legal limit) and was arrested for driving a riding lawn mower while intoxicated.
I am very curious as to if he had the blades down and if so… what do those lawns look like?! Maybe he created some interesting patterns and instead of calling the cops, the neighbors should have given him $5 and a glass of lemonade.
Wow, it’s really been awhile since I’ve had the time and gusto to write… let’s put it this way…been busy and Top Chef really blew this season.
Many know how obsessed I am and have been since I was a wee tyke with Indiana Jones. I finally saw the fourth installment, which mind you I had been waiting over 9 years for, and well… I don’t really want to talk about it. It pains me a little. But one good think I can say is at least the heroine they brought back was Marion and not the annoying chick from Temple of Doom.
On the bright side… things are looking good for the future. More pop culture and ridiculousness to come…
Months after news of a new album and days before the official release, finally I am able to lay my ears on the new Burial album……..so goddamn good! If you’ve heard the first album, this new one takes everything that was great about that album and focuses only on those parts. Nothing but some serious middle of the night, back alley, haunted dance club shit, all complete with those amazing vocal samples which he seems to be able to pull from the outer reaches of record bin heaven. This week Pitchfork will give this album at least a 9 (or else I officially don’t know how they rate albums). If you’ve never heard of Burial just put it on when it’s dark and your nights will never be the same.
Every once in a while you might spot a huge douchebag, you make fun of them and then they are gone forever. Well somebody has gone through the trouble of collecting many pictures of the biggest bags of douche you will ever see www.hotchickswithdouchebags.com. Here’s a little taste
There’s no hot chick in this video, just a huge douchebag named Malibu (the interview at the end makes the video worthwhile)
