sugar on the brain, debt limit, usausaus, series

if you are someone who talks a lot on the cell phone
with it stuck in your ear then you may not want to
read the rest of this blog

one of the tests that i had done and will have every year
for the next 5 years is a pet scan that measures glucose
(one of the sugars) metabolism in the brain
they give you a radioactive labeled glucose that is given
intravenously then they do the scan
areas with abnormal or increased activity show up

so they had people hold the cell phone up to the ear and
turn it on but not talk on it or listen to anything on it

(that must have been real hard for people to do-its like
putting crack in front of a crack addict and telling them not
to use it)
and then measured brain glucose metabolism with a mri or
a pet scan
(wonder if they picked up anyone with early alzheimers)

what happens is that the part of the brain where the cell
phone antenna sits is the area that had the increased glucose
metabolism which shows that the radio frequency waves do
affect the brain activity

this cant be good for you
makes you want to use a hands free phone huh
just dont let it sit in your lap

more research is needed to be done to see what effects
long term this could have
there are millions of people they could test
they could start first with my wife she

just raise the dam debt limit and be done with it
makes me want to vote all of the representatives and senators
out right now
its a good thing this is not an election year

moodys is looking to down grade the us government rating from
their triple a rating
if this happens it will be devastating to our economy

just raise the debt limit-it has to be done
but do your cuts (start with their salaries first maybe 10%)
but you have to raise taxes some way too

it seems both sides are out of touch with reality
in the real world we all cut our expenses but also look for
other sources of revenue to help our bottom line

why cant the us government do the same

sure hope the biggest holder of our debt doesnt get pissed off
or we will all be speaking chinese

lets get er done please

so in soccer sometimes the team that plays the best game doesnt
always win
thats what happened yesterday with the us womens world cup
soccer game with france yesterday
france out played the usa until the last few minutes when the
usa suddenly came alive and scored two quick goals

this team has the karma and are now in the final game on
sunday against japan (i wanted them to play sweden for
a rematch)

hope solo is now the poster player for this team

go usa beat japan

starting tomorrow i will write a three part series on my trip
with alzheimers
it will be posted over the next 3 fridays

how it all happened and when i was diagnosed
later all the tests ive had and their results and then
what it all means for me and for you

  1. The part that gets me the most is the refusal to raise taxes on the top 2 percent. Paying almost 40 thousand in taxes is hard on a family of 5 with 1 income...heaven forbid they pay more. I mean that may mean just one less luxury car they get to drive.

  2. So.... is the reason I have a big butt is because I carry my cell phone in my back pocket and thereby have increased my glucose metabolism in that area? Hmmmm.... may get some shirts with front pockets on top! Enjoyed the blog!

  3. sn
    think thats the funniest comment ive had since i started this blog
