Every cloud has a silver lining ..... Short men and those who are mildly obese live longer whilst short women are less likely to get cancer. Those with smelly feet receive more compassion and those who are unpopular or have big noses are less likely to be infected by bugs. FULL ARTICLE

The more people eat cheese the more people are killed by their bedsheets. A website compiled by a scientist has sparked some worrying conclusions. FULL ARTICLE

Teen angst could linger on into adulthood as grumpy adults could unwittingly be carrying on temper tantrums they started then. FULL ARTICLE 

Godizilla is too fat though he could ice-skate ... but only on skates that are 21.6 metres long and with a blade width of 28 centimetres. FULL ARTICLE

Oh dear...maybe I need to reconsider my cheese intake (or rethink using sheets on my bed).

You gotta wonder sometimes. .. who on earth comes up with the idea for some of these studies? ! Great post as usual.

That article on coincidences is indeed funny but it is also insightful. It teaches us how careful we need to be with statistics.

I'm not surprised beer goggles exist! thanks for sharing.

Nina said...

I do agree, with a couple of beers people do look much better! :) Whoops.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

LOL! I think everything looks better after alcohol.

Don't know why godzilla would ice skate though. Isn't he cold blooded?

Suko said...

I never know what I'll find in these Monday posts. Who knew that smelly feet would bring out the compassion of others? Maybe we should all stop laundering our socks. Thank you for the laughs, Tracy.

Hi Tracy,

Now that I can officially blame my temper, mood swings and 'glass half empty' syndrome on my troubled teenage years, I feel much better and so should hubbie, at least he knows now that not EVERYTHING is his fault!!! ...... Just Joking!

Love your Monday posts, always good to banish those back to work blues!

Yvonne.

Love these bizarre weird and wonderful stories. I'm not giving cheese up though! :)

I hope I fall into the short women who don't get cancer category, but I probably won't be so lucky.

I'd better stop eating so much cheese.
