Hello Peeps, right first things first (as I keep forgetting to ask) someone has voted on my poll (on the right... somewhere) for me to blog about ‘Other’ stuff, if this was you or if it wasn’t you but you feel like replying what would you like me to blog about? Secondly as it’s nearly Christmas here is a truly awful Christmas song; Atomic Nerd’s parody version of Ding Dong Merrily on High:
So we survived the apocalypse... how bad ass are we? We should all get superhero names or something; I’m going to call myself Weirdman and go by the name of The Weird Guy to protect my secret identity. If you could be a superhero what would your name be and what would your superpower be?
Anyways until I get some replies on the first question I shall continue writing about weird news (something I have left out for the last few blog posts). The Supreme Court in Iowa has ruled that employers in the state can sack employees they deem too attractive. The ruling came about when dentist James Knight fired his assistant Melissa Nelson as he found her too attractive causing her to be seen as a threat to his marriage. The court that created the ruling had to decide whether an employee who has not engaged in flirtatious conduct may be lawfully terminated simply because the boss views the employee as an irresistible attraction. It’s a little bit worrying to think that bosses may use this new found power over people they find attractive for two reasons one attractive people may be put into awkward positions by employers who find them attractive knowing full well they can be sacked if they don’t comply and two it may lead to a lot of attractive people leaving Iowa as jobs may be harder to keep for attractive people meaning Iowa could become a really ugly place.
In other news a man ends up in hospital for eating too many Brussels sprouts. That’s right peeps and not for the reason that you’re thinking (methane inhalation). The man in question from Ayrshire, Scotland ate a plate full of the methane bombs which interfered with his blood thinning tablets. Apparently green leafy vegetables are full of Vitamin K which is used by the body to help clot blood. Unfortunately for the man eating so many of the ‘good for you’ veggies meant the effects of his medication had been reversed leading to the man having heart failure, luckily the hospital were able to stabilise the man’s condition after initial confusion over what had caused the failure. So there you have it if you need thicker blood (my sister included) eat your greens, if you need thinner blood get plastered, alternatively as it’s Christmas do both.
Right that’s all for now & have a good Christmas superheroes
