If your a filthy fagger, you’ve no doubt said to yourself ‘fluff it — quitting puts on 2 dress sizes!’ Just for a change, your right. Researchers have discovered that nicotine decreases the want of food via the activation of Pro-opiomelanocortin – POMC – neurons. (Mutations in the POMC gene have been associated with early onset obesity, adrenal insufficiency, and red hair-pigmentation) Importantly, the researchers have shown that nicotine causes a dip in appetite via a different pathway to the one that it triggers addiction through. This means that it’s possible to make a drug that isn’t addictive, but still has nicotine’s goodly appetite-suppressing powers. On average smokers are 2.5 kilograms lighter than non-smokers! In the study, researchers gave nicotine to mice daily for 30 days and found that the mice reduced their food intake by nearly 50 per cent and lost 15 to 20 per cent of their body fat. D★D READ MORE
With Lindsay Lohan the news just seems to go round and round and round. Lindsay Lohan appeared in court today – looking her usual mess – and had her probation revoked, it’s now likely she will go back to jail. A Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner, today and revoked Lindsay Lohan’s probation, saying the actress has blown off her court-ordered community service and even questioning the starlet’s commitments to her acting career. “She is supposed to be an actress from what I hear. I don’t know how much acting work she’s done or is doing,” said LA Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner said as a gaunt-looking Lohan sat quietly at a table. Lohan, aside from a role in last year’s film “Machete,” has seen her acting career evaporate in recent years. LiLo, who has of course looked a mess for a wee while now, was taken away in cuffs to sort out her bail, which was set at $100,000. She’ll be back in court again on November 2 for a probation violation hearing during which she’ll most likely be sent back to jail. Lohan’s spokesman Steve Honig said Lohan immediately posted bail.

At some point we ALL need to take a good hard look into a mirror and ask ourselves that question: “Am I a Cocknocker” Let me just tell you straight up! If you have a bottle of Bling H20 on your kitchen counter top, in your hand or on the fridge door, the answer is a definitive YES! At $40 a bottle – FOR WATER – your bent, hear that? BENT! Ready for the rant: It’s little wonder that Wall Street is – as we speak – crowded with people protesting against excesses, just how do you differentiate a product like bottled water, turn on a f_cking tap you cocknocker!? Americans drink more than 25 billion litres of bottled water a year at prices greater than gasoline. Bottled water sales have risen 50% per person in less than a decade, which isn’t bad for a core product that varies little, and is at least a thousand times more expensive than tap water which is readily available as an alternative. In Europe, water is even bigger business – Western Europeans drink more than half the world’s bottled water. And don’t even get us started on the massive problem bottled water causes to the environment! D★D READ MORE
