Do You Have Water Bottle Lips?

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

Most of you are probably aware of the term “smokers lips”, the lines and wrinkles around the mouth of someone that smokes. Here’s what D.C. dermatologist Dr. Marilyn Berzin has to say to back up her claim:

“When you’re drinking from a water bottle, you’re pretty much making the same face as you are when you’re smoking a cigarette,” said Berzin.

Berzin said that over time that face creates permanent lines.

People who drink from water bottles with either sport or straw tops or nozzles, consistently, all day long, for about two years, will start to develop noticeable smokers lips, according to Berzin.

Berzin recommended that water drinkers use wide-mouthed bottles or cups, allowing the upper lip to stay relaxed while drinking.

I’m not so sure I can go along with everything the good doctor is selling. It’s hard to believe people suck on water bottles like they’re trying to earn a fast $40. Most people don’t actually suck on a water bottle (unless you’re from California), they put the water bottle close to their mouths and squeeze.

If you’re trying to earn a spot in the cast of Rent, then sure, sucking off a water bottle is the way to go. But if you’re just thirsty, then a simple squeeze will suffice.

I really shouldn’t have to explain this

Experts Define Premature Ejaculation

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

Experts from around the globe say they have finally been able to define life-long premature ejaculation:

The definition was developed after lengthy critical evaluation of the evidence presented in more than 100 studies on the sexual problem published over the last 65 years. It was unanimously agreed by the experts that the definition of lifelong premature ejaculation should be a combination of three key factors:

– Ejaculation that always or nearly always occurs prior to or within about one minute of vaginal penetration.

– The inability to delay ejaculation on all or nearly all vaginal penetrations.

– Negative personal consequences such as distress, bother, frustration and/or the avoidance of sexual intimacy.

Hell, I came three times just reading the article.

If it took experts 65 years to define premature ejaculation, it’s going to take them 2000 years to find a cure for it.

It’s hard to imagine all the research and research money that went into just defining what premature ejaculation is. Especially when all they had to do was ask anyone that owns a Corvette.

And they’re off!

Women Lie, Cheat, Steal, So The Survey Says

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

Researchers for That’s Life! magazine surveyed 5000 British women and discovered some rather startling results, such as:

Four out of ten (42%) would lie about contraception in order to get pregnant, in spite of the wishes of their partner.

HALF of all women would lie to their husbands or partners to keep their relationship going if they became pregnant by another man.

Eight out of ten women (83%) admit to telling “big, life-changing lies”, with 13% saying they do so frequently.

38% say they would marry purely for money. 23% would allow their man to sleep with another woman for ‘50,000.

An alarming 31% of all women say they would not tell a future partner if they had a sexual disease. This rises for 65% for single women.

Don’t bother reading the rest of the statistics, for if you do, only two things will come out of it: You’ll end up getting divorced, or you’ll never let your honey out of the door unless she’s equipped with a tracking device, a ball-gag, and a leash.

Just forget you ever saw this article, or better yet, just assume that the women in question are British and that the behaviour in question only happens with British women and not with women like your little Suzie. Ya, Suzie’s a good girl, she’s loyal like a pit-bull.

I can’t resist adding this one last statistic into the fray:

Most women (68%) do not trust their partner.

That’s because men can’t be trusted, right?

I love you baby, but I must insist on references
