I watched some moronic morning show yesterday and there was this segment on how women should not drink more than 6 glasses of wine per week because that would totally cause them to have breast cancer. The whole time I was thinking , "Fark that. I'm gonna do what I wanna do...and you're not going to make me become paranoid because of it." We're all going to die at some point and I refuse to live a bland and depressing existence in the mean time (just in case). So women aren't allowed to have more than 6 drinks per week. Fark you.

I gotta meet this Science guy; he sounds like a pretty cool dude.

So a steady diet of wine and marijuana should pretty much make me immortal?

I choose to believe what I was programed to believe.


I also cannot spell programmed. Programned. It just gets worse. The lesson is: never try.

Danger Avoid Death: Cog Spinner: I watched some moronic morning show yesterday ...

Wait ... aren't they all moronic?


Yes. They are. It was the Home and Family show on Hallmark Channel and after that segment they had some farking crazy woman explain how young dudes should wear an oatmeal concoction on their faces to decrease clogged pores. She paraded her son and his fellow football team mates from a, get this, Christian high school (big surprise there) out in front of the cameras so they could slather this crap all over their faces. They even used paint brushes to apply this crap. My dog wouldn't eat that shiat and all of those "Christian" football players looked mortified, as they should. It was so farking ridiculous I had to turn the channel.

Good,  Now only need to live past all the alcohol related stuff.

I see this coming,

Police: You drunk !!!
Me : No it cancer treatment and I need another swing just about now!

like it or not, there is a fair bit of evidence that the more alcohol you drink the more likely you are to get breast cancer. you are obviously completely free to not give a shiat if you want to, but unfortunately the science is pretty solid.

there are lots and lots of other triggers as well, and living a healthy lifestyle in terms of food and exercise and weight and sleep and suchlike will help. at least that's my approach. no way im restricting myself to 6 drinks a week either...

/Great, now I'm gonna have to watch 'Sideways' again

Nothing but regurgitated research, or entirely made up studies, just to get someones name in a news article, paper or scribbled on a bathroom wall...  within 2-3 months some other asshat will have another made up study showing how this asshat is wrong and it causes your penis to fall off and attack people with assault rifles in coffee shops on Tuesday afternoons and loads of other made up BS that goes along with it like severe brain damage if you snort fresh Vit D milk up your nose in the same week on any day that ends in a "Y".

My father-in-law died of stomach cancer last week. He was a wine drinker. Not that he abused it ...

Sorry dude, apparently the wine didn't fight this kind of cancer.

/not buying it

n=1 is not a sufficiently large sample size to draw conclusions like that

Give me cheap wine without sulfites that CLOG MY SINUSES and we might talk.
 
2013-10-22 07:08:39 AM
In related news I have thought of a way to prevent breast cancer in women, but because I am not a scientist, the medical community along with the rest of society would surely mock my solution as a crack-pot theory.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: If a glass a day is good then a whole bottle while watching Pro Wrestling will make me immortal!


No, the article says you need to combine the wine with radiation, not pro wrestling, to kill the cancer cells.  I have several hundred bottles of wine and a degree in nuclear engineering so I'm in pretty good shape if the article is right.

/Oh, and I do watch pro wrestling too
//Just in case

So the winemakers are assuming that we've forgotten about this scam again?

Great, I always do these things wrong. I only drink white wine.
