>Condoms are far cheaper than child support
>Hold your breath to quickly deflate a boner
>Never trust a fart in public or in the company of a pretty lady. Not even once
>Shaving your balls is much easier when you have a hard one
>After you get the spare tire on, there's still a chance that your spare is flat or close to flat as well, since it's been sitting in your trunk for a long time. However, the mechanic you take your dead tire to can fill it up for free if you just ask
>Keep a small trashcan in your bathroom for ladies you have over
>Do you tend to get sweaty on your morning commute via public transportation or walking?
>Don't put on your tie until you get to your office building. Do it in a restroom and use the chance to run a comb through your hair. Your shirt collar will stay cleaner, too

I read this in the newspaper yesterday (pulled it through google translate) and I thought I'd post it here.
Obesity still unhealthy
British and American newspapers rejoiced last week that a BMI up to 10 pounds overweight is healthy, and even can lead to a longer life, but Dutch experts see that completely different.
The media responded to a meta-analysis in the authoritative Jama, the Journal of the American Medical Association. It was looked at almost a hundred previous studies on the relationship mortality and obesity, measured in BMI. A group of people with a certain degree of overweight (BMI under 25) did not appear to die earlier than the group of average weight and underweight, and even live longer.
But under these statistical figures is another story, warn VU professor of Nutrition and Obesity Jaap Seidell and Frank Visseren, UMC internist and Professor of Vascular Medicine. "There is certainly no dispensation for obesity."
In the meta-study are few studies of Seidell taken including a study of 50,000 people aged 40 to 12 years were followed. What the figures and concluded distorts, he argues, for example, the areas included group (chronically) ill people who typically has a low weight, as heavy smokers. "People in this group died earlier than overweight people." Another study involved 65s who only recently were followed. "There too we found no association between BMI and mortality but between waist circumference and mortality."
