By web gangsta | Published:

Talk about the ultimate “brain freeze”!

There have been many people who have said that “man was never intended to drink cow’s milk, unless man wanted to be as fat as a calf”. For those people, human milk is the only kind to have.

No joke: Your partner’s stinky farts may save your life!


By web gangsta | Published:

Everyone farts.

And everyone tries very hard to prevent farting in public.  That’s a lot of pent-up gas.

So why the pressure to not break wind in front of others?  Is it society politeness? Is it embarrassment of being labeled a Stink-a-roo?  Being stuck in an elevator with a foul odor for an extended period of time?

Interactive: Weather forecast for your area in the year 2100


By web gangsta | Published:

There is one common denominator in most small talk conversations: “HOW’S THE WEATHER WHERE YOU ARE?

Why is the weather such a topic of discussion? Because it’s safe. Everyone has an opinion on it, and you can’t argue whether someone’s wrong.  If you don’t like the weather, just wait an hour – it’ll likely change.

Using hospital elevators can kill you


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has told you about all the different ways physicians and other medical professionals spread germs and disease everywhere they go.

From dirty stethoscopes to dirty scrubs (or scrubs worn on airplanes, and then to who knows where!), nurses and doctors are constantly walking around in swirling packs of germs, like “Pigpen” from the Peanuts comic strip.

And it only gets worse from there.

Peeing in the Pool can Kill You


By web gangsta | Published:

We know you’ve done it at least once – everyone has pee’d in the pool at least once in their life.

Of course, this is more expected with children and others who have less control of their bathroom habits, but we’re sure that there are one or a dozen adults out there who have peed in the pool – on purpose – on some drunken night.

Heck, we’re fairly certain we saw one of the contestants on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette pee in the hot tub on an episode.  We definitely remember seeing it happen in MTV’s The Real World hot tub, as well as on CBS’s Big Brother.  And Michael Phelps did say that “all Olympic swimmers pee in the pool… all the time!”

If an Olympic athlete will pee in the pool, then how bad could it be for the rest of us?

There may be rare cases where a physician tells a patient that they have to eat more in order to maintain certain aspects of health, but the vast majority of us do need to lose some weight or get more exercise on a regular basis.
