I like how it’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Thor: The Dark World” and then Iron Man is just like, fuck the bullshit, we’re just callin’ this thing “Iron Man 3”.
Because a secondary title would imply it’s also about something other than Iron Man. And we all know how well that would work out.
“Iron Man 3: Tony Stark”
Iron Man 3: The Tony Starkening.
Iron Man 3: Got Iron ?
yea, why not…
I hate it when that happens
That is not how you swat a spider.
So, in the middle of everything today, we ran across a hellaciously distressed momma mallard and a bunch of her baby ducks that had fallen down a sewer grate. Another guy was already trying to fish them out, so my friend and I called animal control before we tried to fish the rest of them out. When Animal Control got there, we had all of them out and the mother duck quacking very happily. I was surprised - none of us got snapped at or hurt. I was even holding onto a bag at one point that had all of them in it and she just watched me.
I love how the duck is perched on the guy’s butt
I’M SO HAPPY
Animals know who’s bad, who’s good, and who’s trying to help them.
the truth about dairy…
Um, the problem with this is that the top two cattle are beef cattle, and therefore are bred for their production of meat, not milk. Dairy cattle are bred for milk, and therefore have that kind of capacity… we obviously don’t get any meat from them.
And they keep getting them pregnant so their milk production stays high.
Truer words were never said…
THESE ARE THE AGES OF THE DISNEY PRINCESSES AND YOUR LIFE IS A LIE
And to think, a guy kissed a unconscious/comatose 14 year old.
thats a little bit shady
And a 60 year old man tried to force a marriage with a 15 year old.
The wonder of cultural differences…. like eating dog instead of cow.

Despite spending billions of dollars on research and development, drug companies have been unable to come up with effective treatments for dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Now, A. David Smith at the University of Oxford and his colleagues have discovered that, in some patients experiencing mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a cocktail of high-dose B vitamins could prevent gray matter loss associated with progression to AD. The study appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The World Health Organization predicts that between 2010 and 2050 the number of dementia cases will increase from 26 million to 115 million worldwide. Although there is an urgent demand for treatment, pharmaceutical companies have been unable to develop drugs that will delay or cure dementia. So far, approved drugs merely ease symptoms.
Smith and his team wanted to see if B vitamins reduced the risk of AD by lowering total homocysteine (tHcy) levels. There is a positive correlation between high tHcy levels and risk of cognitive impairment and AD.
The researchers studied 156 subjects over 70 in Oxford, England who suffered from MCI. The subjects received either a placebo or a high-dose B vitamin cocktail consisting of 20 milligrams of vitamin B6, 0.5 milligrams of vitamin B12 and 0.8 milligrams of folic acid.
Over a two-year period, subjects in both the experimental and control groups lost gray matter in the medial temporal, lateral temporoparietal and occipital regions and in the anterior and posterior cingulate cortex.
However, those receiving B vitamin treatment experienced significantly less atrophy in regions of the brain most affected in people with AD and people with MCI who go on to develop AD. These include the bilateral hippocampus, the parahippocampal gyrus, the retrosplenial precuneus, the lingual gyrus, the fusiform gyrus and the cerebellum. The placebo group experienced a 3.7 percent loss of gray matter in these regions, compared with a 0.5 percent loss among the experimental group.
When they looked at baseline tHcy levels, Smith and his colleagues found that B-vitamin treatment did not significantly reduce gray matter atrophy among subjects with tHcy levels below the median. The B-vitamin cocktail did have a significant effect on high-tHcy participants: those receiving the cocktail experienced only a 0.6 percent loss of gray matter, while high-tHcy participants in the placebo group experienced a 5.2 percent loss.
The team found a correlation between gray matter loss and worsening of scores on tests that measure cognitive function.
A causal Bayesian network analysis showed that B vitamins lower tHcy levels. This decreases gray matter atrophy, which delays cognitive decline.
