Quick Hits: With More Meat

Another burger Senator?

According to a new poll, more people would like to have Obama as a barbecue guest than have McCain. They give all kinds of reasons in the story, but I think just the thought of John McCain in Bermuda shorts puts people off their burgers and potato salad.

Can I have 'schrooms on that?

According to a new study, eating psychedelic mushrooms can make a person feel happier and more centered for up to 14 months after the experience. There are so many drugs out there that aren't build in labs that could help people, it makes you wonder if the pharma companies are behind this whole war on drugs.

Excuse me sir, please step away from the sausage.

A man in Florida was arrested for throwing some sausage at his mother. That's right, arrested. He "grazed" her with three pounds of polish sausage and ended up in jail on $500 bond. If I remember correctly, Florida has a little problem with narcotics and guns, but these cops decided to spend their time and the court's time by arresting a guy for throwing meat at his mom. Only in Florida.

Just give me a cup 'o joe.

Scientists in Oklahoma found that mice which had been immunized to develop an MS-like condition appeared to be protected from the disease by drinking the equivalent of six to eight cups of coffee a day. Considering my borderline obsessive coffee habit, I think we can count MS off the list for me.

Coffee could help beat MS: study

I think it was also in Florida where they tazed a five year old boy in a closet. The cops are just real tough guys down there.

I have really grown to dislike drugs and drug users. Always looking for a miracle cure to this horrible life instead of fixing it and doing something about it.

I'd love to have both of them at a BBQ, are you kidding me? I'd have questions for them both for DAYS.

Dude got arrested for throwing sausage? Does this mean that I can file charges against my brother who has, in the past(though no one is keeping track...I'm no one), thrown frozen bologna at an old boyfriend and myself(should've gotten the hint at the time that the guy was jerk if my brother was throwing frozen meat at him), and also threw a half-gallon container of vanilla ice cream at me and knocked me right between the eyes.

I love coffee, and caffine in general, but my TMJ does not. If I have too much caffine in any given day, my jaw is a wreck the next day(which hubby doesn't complain about because I'm less likely to nag..or even talk in general).

We need those Florida cops up here, near Toronto. We have too much meat and non-meat related violence and they could really clean up this town.
