Fat Food Makes You Fat AND Stupid

I forget what this is.Guts may be in, but the process of procuring them does one no favors mentally: A recent study shows that "indulging in fatty foods over the course of a few days can affect the brain and body long before the extra pounds show up." Turns out that the more burgers you cram down your gaping maw, the worse your short-term memory reacts. (Exercise is also adversely affected, but I don't exercise, so I don't care.) Most of this information comes from studies on rats, so I'm going to offer myself up as a human participant in the experiment: I'm about to tuck into a bigass plate of wings. If I wind up doing another post on this very same subject in an hour or so, consider the hypothesis validated. If I post nothing, the theory clearly needs more work. Or else I've succumbed to a massive coronary. Anyway, mmmm, wings!

In other science news: Yeah, go ahead, pee in the shower, you're not hurting anyone.

If a racing mind was cardio, I'd look like a greyhound.

But who can pass up Oreos dipped in sausage gravy? Not me!

Thanks so much for this. I think. I'd forgotten to shower for the past few days.

I'd also forgotten to pee.

"gaping maw" never gets old.

It's days like this that make glad I subsist on the blood of the living.
