Love Your Banana

have a bananaYou may not be aware of the importance of nitric oxide in your life but it's quite essential for proper functioning of the human body. When released, as a result of sudden stress, it helps the arteries expand and thus allows blood to pass faster through the body. This is vital on those occasions where, say, you turn a corner to find a tiger named Vito holding a baseball bat, purring something ominous in regards to some unpaid gambling debts.

Unfortunately, Americans eat a lot of meat, which increases levels of bad cholesterol in the body, the LDL variety. They coat the arterial walls with plaque, subsequently lessening the effectiveness of nitric oxide. That's why, for instance, so many men have heart attacks shoveling snow as the heart unsuccessfully attempts to push ten gallons of blood through a five gallon hose.

As though that's bad enough there's another down side, literally, to reduced levels of nitric oxide and it's in men's pants. That's right, your penis also has arteries and excess amounts of bad cholesterol means plaque build-up there, too.

Like it or not, reducing your intake of meat will not only help you live longer, it will make you love longer, too.

So have a banana, instead of a kielbasa, and save the wiener.


Not much to talk about movie-wise this week. Beloved Girlfriend and I heard good things about a Netflixable action film called Elite Squad: The Enemy Within, so we gave it a try. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 95 but we gave up about an hour into the movie as it was too much talk, not enough rock. But if you happen to like Brazilian political bureaucracy, this might be your film.

We rounded out the evening watching episodes of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. If you like food porn plus stories of sin and redemption you'll enjoy this series.

Before I go, I have a recommendation you MUST see. It's a funny and imaginative Oscar-nominated short called "The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore" and you can view it on Youtube. Go now. And bring a hankie.

Here's a tantalizing image from the short.

Note 1: When did life begin at conception? Evidently in 1979.

Note 2: Mitt "Mittens" Romney's finance co-chair, a billionaire named Frank VanderSloot, is a huge anti-gay bigot.

Note 3: Bill Gates built himself a 66,000 square-foot, 25 bathroom, $134 million-dollar compound to live in. Steve Jobs lived in a regular house.

Note 4: Wal-Mart's "low prices" take a big bite out of American tax-payers. Shop at Costco.

Note 5: Sealife brought up from the deepest depths of the ocean literally fall apart at sea level. The "Abyss Box" changes all that, and has the coolest name ever.

Note 6: There are two types of diabetes; diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus. I'm told that before modern lab tests were available physicians would often taste urine samples to tell the difference as the melitius variety was less dilute and, therefore ,"sweeter".

Republican Job Creation Update

republican job creation2-20-2012: Congress is out this week on an extended Presidents Day vacation. Between now and April they're going to take four weeks off. Who the heck made this ridiculous schedule? (Hint: The majority party in the House. The idea being that the less Congress is in session, the less gets done.)
