It’s been a while since I’ve posted funny pictures, so it’s way overdue. Plus, the first one has relevance based on current world events, if you’ve heard about Russia’s “takeover” of Crimea (part of the Ukraine). Then there’s the usual randomness.

Recently I was battling a cold, and someone suggested I take Cold-Eeze, which is supposedly proven to reduce the duration of the common cold. It’s hard to know how much it actually helps, because colds vary in duration naturally. But I’m willing to try it. Also, it has zinc in it, which reminds me of an episode of Phineas and Ferb. 🙂
While glancing over the fine print on the box, I noticed this line:
“Product may produce a laxative effect.”
That’s information that it pays to know! Well, you might also pay if you don’t know! If someone started taking them like candy, reasoning that if one helps then surely multiple doses helps more, bad things could happen. Ignorance isn’t always bliss, as the saying goes. Here, ignorance could equal diarrhea.
That’s all I have to say about that, but I can’t end the post with diarrhea, so let me close with an appropriate saying I learned from watching G.I. Joe cartoons as a kid: “Knowing is half the battle.” In this case, it could be more than half…
Isn’t it weird that when you have a fever, your body feels cold? Your internal temperature is above normal, yet you feel colder than normal. Some say it’s because your body’s thermostat (as controlled by your hypothalamus) sets the temperature higher, so despite being at normal temperatures, your brain says you’re cold, so you start shivering and getting chills. So your brain is actually deceived (stupid hypothalamus!). That explains why the common cold is considered a virus — it’s hacking your internal network, changing values and making the system malfunction. It all makes sense now!
And on the subject of colds, here’s an idea for a funny video. Have a hidden camera capture the facial reactions of people taking the liquidious version of DayQuil. That is some nasty-tasting medicine!
