PRESCRIPTION DRUG SIDE EFFECT

January 25, 2016 at 12:32 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

It’s breakfast time, and a woman asks her husband, “Would you like some bacon and eggs, a slice of toast, and maybe some grapefruit juice and coffee?”

He declines. “Thanks for asking, but, I’m not hungry right now. “It’s this Viagra,” he says. “It’s really taken the edge off my appetite.”

At lunchtime, she asks him if he’d like something. “How about a bowl of soup, homemade muffins, or a cheese sandwich?”

He declines. “The Viagra,” he says, “really trashes my desire for food.”

Come dinner time, she asks if he wants anything to eat. “Would you like a juicy rib eye steak and some scrumptious apple pie? Or maybe a rotisserie chicken or tasty stir fry?”

He declines again. “No,” he says, “it’s got to be the Viagra. I’m still not hungry.”

“Well,” she says, “Would you mind letting me up? I’m starving.”

THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Crocodile takes morning dip in Florida Keys swimming pool: “A crocodile apparently decided a morning dip in a Florida Keys swimming pool was just the thing it needed. Monroe County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin says an Islamorada homeowner called around 7:30 a.m. Thursday to report the croc in his pool. A photo provided by the sheriff’s office shows the large reptile floating languidly in the shallow end of the pool. Herrin said the animal was about 8 feet long. Herrin says deputies and officers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission safely removed the animal and returned it to its native habitat. The American crocodile is designated as a federal threatened species. It lives mainly in brackish waters of South Florida and the Keys. Islamorada is 77 miles north of Key West.”

Guantánamo detainee refuses to leave: “Three Guantánamo detainees were slated to leave the US prison in Cuba this week after about 14 years in captivity. But early Wednesday morning, only two were willing to board the plane. The third, Mohammed Ali Abdullah Bwazir of Yemen, balked at the last minute, even though he has a history of hunger striking to protest his indefinite detention without trial. In recent days, Bwazir was “frightened” to leave the prison and go to a country where he has no family, his lawyer, John Chandler, said. The country has not been identified. Chandler also said his client, who was born around 1980 and brought to Guantánamo in 2002, was depressed. He compared his client to a character in the prison movie “The Shawshank Redemption” who has spent so much of his life behind bars that he cannot handle life on the outside after finally being paroled. “Can you imagine being there for 14 years, and going to a plane where you could finally leave, and saying ‘No, take me back to my cell?’”

Atlanta couple terrorized by unknown glitch that brings dozens of people and police to their home demanding STOLEN phones: “An Atlanta couple is being bombarded by people pounding on their front door, sometimes in the middle of the night, sometimes with a cop, demanding that they hand over a missing phone. Christina Lee and Michael Saba’s answer is always the same: ‘Your phone-tracking app is wrong, we’re sorry you’ve come all this way. This has happened before.’ They received more than a dozen visits in the last year – and two already in the first month of 2016. As the visits continue, Lee and Saba are getting more and more worried that one day the person who believes their stolen iPhone is inside their home won’t be as understanding as the last. ‘My biggest fear is that someone dangerous or violent is going to visit our house because of this,’ Saba told Fusion.”

Diver leaned out of cage to pat Great White shark on the nose: “This is the incredible moment one daredevil diver reached out of his underwater cage and patted a Great White shark on the nose. Not content with merely watching the terrifying predator prowling the underwater environment, the three scuba divers decide they want to get up close and personal. One member of the group decides the only way to attract the shark’s attention is by teasing it with some bait. And so some food is floated out of the cage to attract attention. The Great White swims up to the cage, and it is this moment where the diver leans his body between two rungs, and reaching out his hand, pats the beast on the nose. The other two divers remain in the confines of the cage, one photographing the incredible, if not heart-stopping encounter”

Sperm whales washed up dead on British beaches ‘were part of pod which has also lost 12 other members: “The four tragic whales found washed up on British beaches are believed to be part of the same all-male group as 12 more found dead around Holland and Germany last week. British experts say the three males found in Lincolnshire and one in Norfolk are part of a bachelor pod that ventured into the North Sea from deeper water and were unable to feed in shallower depths. Twelve more sperm whales, also all male, were found washed n or off the coast of the Dutch island of Texel and the German islands of Wangerooge and Helgoland last week. Pods can include more than 20 of the 30-tonne animals, and it is believed that all of them may die after venturing into a stretch of water that is almost impossible to escape without going back the way they came.”
