Karaoke for the deaf.
And men who donate blood have a 30% reduced risk of heart disease compared to those who do not. The difference is attributed to reduced levels of iron following a blood donation.
Huh...Maybe there was something to the medieval practice of bleeding people after all.
I wouldn't go that far. lol. They mainly bled women for hysteria as I recall.
I'd heard that, too. Sadly the wandering uterus goes largely untreated by today's so-called "doctors" ;)
Not to disparage the generosity of those who give blood, but that "study" sounds specious at best. A much more likely explanation is that people who give blood are more aware of health issues to begin with, and thus are less likely to smoke or overeat.
Agreed. post hoc, ergo propter hoc 'n all that.
*nod* I posted some more articles about the study if you wanted to research it. They're right below this comment, i believe. :)
Amusingly enough that skit wouldn't work well without the music, I'd have no idea what was going on at all. haha
Also, you should check out some of the other skits by the Hollow Men. If you go to www.comedycentral.com and go to motherload and search for them, you'll find some great skits form their show. Very Monty Python-esque. The show didn't last that long on Comedy Central though. It's extremely bizarre and unfortunately, that sort of humor doesn't seem to get the ratings on that station.
Oooh, I will definitely check that out. Thanks. :)

My high school principal would regularly donate 2 units of blood to rid his body of excess iron. I don't remember what caused him to have so much iron in his blood, though. (He was so annoying; I just kind of nodded and said, "M'kay" when it was discussed. :P
I loved the video. ;)
And I've never actually heard about it until i started reading up on it.
good thing i donate every year
I can't. I pass out. They told me I can't come again. lol
That reminds me, I was planning on donating soon since it's been long enough since my last piercing.
Awesome. :) Glad to be a good little reminder.
I wish I could. I pass out though, so they don't like me.
Lol, that deaf karaoke was hi-larious!
I can't. I pass out and they told me not to anymore.
Why don't you?
