Long before you were born, young whippersnapper, all pills and potions came in brown glass bottles. That way you could go from branded proprietary meds to generic post-patent meds with nary a whisper from the patient. These days the NHS procurement / approvals bodies insist on buying meds in retail packaging instead of having pharmacists counting pills and deciding on brands or generics.

One of the girlies from the disco band has just started chemo for breast cancer. She had to give away her pro-biotic yoghurts, because she would have ended up with no enteric flora except what was in the drinks, therefore she would have been a new species of singing yoghurt. Apparently medical science is not ready for this yet.

(That is her flippant version of events, not mine.)

U.S. pharmacies distributed pills in both ways, depending on the drug in question. Last time I was prescribed antibiotics they came in a blister pack, but I've also gotten them in the orange bottle things. Sometimes there's a child safety concern as well, the bottles tend to have tricky opening methods (push and hold down, then turn) that make it harder for shorties to get into your pills.

They are more visually obvious than a blister pack. Plus, similar to what Roy said, there was a time when pills always came in bottles so there's a strong cultural association there. In the case of the comic, I think it's just easier to anthropomorphize a bottle than a blister pack.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

I am very immature and so find supermarket scrabble hilarious. You'll quickly understand how it's played but there are some notty words.

Edit - apparently this is several years old. I feel like I've been missing out.

Starsky and Hutch were playing Scrabble in the car. Hutch was losing, so he threw his pieces out of the window. Starsky had to go and find Huggy Bear, find out what the word on the street is.

Livestrong articles are written by idiots.

Reena Vokuon wrote:Myth 2: Muscle weighs more than fat, so if you're not slimming down from working out, this is the reason.

Reality: While most of us have probably heard this myth before, it's incorrect. According to the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Stacey Penney, NASM CES, PES, FNS, one pound of muscle actually weighs the same as one pound of fat.

No shit Sherlock. In other news, a pound of lead weighs the same as a pound of feathers :facewall:

Actually, they are written FOR idiots. I have to use a similar approach with many of the documents I write for elected officials. And doubly so for stuff I write for public consumption.

Also, those same feathers, and four times the original pound of lead, all weigh the same in zero gravity.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.
