Beer contains Female Hormones

This is serious stuff, researchers have found that "Beer Contains Female Hormones!"

Last month, National University of Lesotho scientists released the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer. Men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption. The theory is that beer contains female hormones (hops contain phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough beer, men turn into women.

To test the theory, 100 men drank 8 pints of beer each within a 1 hour period. It was then observed that 100% of the test subjects: . . . .

1. Argued over nothing.
2. Refused to apologize when obviously wrong.
3. Gained weight.
4. Talked excessively without making sense.
5. Became overly emotional.
6. Couldn't drive.
7. Failed to think rationally
8. Had to sit down while urinating.

No further testing was considered necessary

Caveman Golfer

Some of this is pretty funny,
Some of it, not so much.

Berkeley Pit

DI has a new take on this.

I Was Browsing information on the Berkeley Pit in Butte Montana.
I came across this Article that showed me just how the Daily show gets the people to look so stupid on film.

Sesso's story provides a pretty good illustration of how the Daily Show goes about creating its segments. The effusive Sesso tells Gelf he was interviewed for roughly two hours. "They asked me everything under the sun," he says. "I was pretty well prepared, though, and apparently was pretty boring to them. So they closed by asking me to tell a joke."

Sesso was unable to come with anything clean, he says, hence the pregnant pause that dominates much of the segment.

I visited the pit about 10 years ago and I thought that it was interesting.

Another long winded, but interesting read Here.

Happy 4th!
