But your daily glass of wine is doing good things to your ticker....<br><br><a href="http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1706768,00.html" target="_blank">http://www.time.com/time/magazine/ar...706768,00.html</a>

And I'm lucky, since it's one glass for women, but two for men!<br>
Is this medical research? If so, could I get a prescription that I can show to the cops, just in case?

I will attest to the red wine – health connection. In February of 2007 I went in for an annual physical (I’m a 46 year old male). My previous “annual” physical before that was two years earlier in 2005. The results of my 2005 blood work showed my cholesterol to be 205. No surprise, no worries. It had always been just a little +/- 200. About that same time...in 2005...I found a taste for red wine (preferably Cabernet Sauvignon). I started drinking it with regularity. A bottle a week (unfortunately sometimes it’s not spread out over days and is consumed all in one night <img alt="razz.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/razz.gif"> ). So, fast forward to my 2007 physical. Blood work now showed my cholesterol to be down to 145. The lowest it had ever been in my life was in the low 180s back when I was 20-something. I had not changed my diet, or my exercise regiment. The only thing I can credit that reduction to is the consumption of the red wine. Cheers!<br><br>

Not to mention that red wine eliminates a lot of stress, thus protecting brain cells and extending life, or at least brain-healthy life.

I'd like someone to fund a study to figure out why old people drive so slow; and what can be done to prevent <i>THAT!!!</i>

NTSB needs to do it.<br><br>

NOOOOOOoooooooo.......they're turning into a parking place on the right!<br><br>
Aaaarrrggghgghghghgh<br><br>
I've learned to give them plenty of room.

I have nothing against slow drivers, for some people it's definitely better to drive slower.<br><br>
But...<br><br>
If you drive slow, STAY OFF THE FREAKIN LEFT LANE!<br><br>
There should be a rule: if 2 cars pass you on your right, there must be something wrong with you. Can happen to anybody, happened to me while I was on the phone, if I see a car passing on the right, I change lanes...

Do we really need a study for this??<br><br>
By the way, the government made a study that concluded it is wasting too much money and time on useless research. The study took 4 years and cost $40 millions.

We may live longer, but we'll spend more time sick. That is, unless we don't.<br><br><a href="http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/12/071204091909.htm" target="_blank">http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...1204091909.htm</a>

Not while they're injured. And as soon as they're healed, my brain will start saying "why do yoga or stretching, everything's fine!" Stupid brain.
