How Rich Are You?

How Rich Are You?

It is pretty easy to feel sorry for yourself about your financial position in the world we live in. The bills pile up, the boss doesn?t give you that raise and you can?t update your latest gadget. Honestly sometimes money gets me down.

Can I suggest you head over to the Global Rich List and find out where you fit into the global population as far as how rich you are.

These things put life into perspective don?t they?

Quer saber o quão rico você é? Basta acessar o site Global Rich List e fornecer a sua renda mensal, em dólares ou libras. O site dará a sua posição financeira em relação ao resto do mundo. O GlobalRichList parece um daqueles testes aleatórios que circulam pela Internet, mas na verdade, é ligado à entidade CareE International, que ajuda as populações de países pobres. Os cálculos, inclusive, são baseados em dados do Banco Mundial.

McDonald's Diet

McDonald's Diet

Ever wondered what would happen to you if you ate McDonald's morning noon and night? Well now you can find out because someone has decided to be the guinea pig for us all and eat three meals every day for thirty days at McDonald's.

The New York Post has the details.

'His mission: To eat three meals a day for 30 days at McDonald's and document the impact on his health.

Scores of cheeseburgers, hundreds of fries and dozens of chocolate shakes later, the formerly strapping 6-foot-2 New Yorker - who started out at a healthy 185 pounds - had packed on 25 pounds.

But his supersized shape was the least of his problems.

Within a few days of beginning his drive-through diet, Spurlock, 33, was vomiting out the window of his car, and doctors who examined him were shocked at how rapidly Spurlock's entire body deteriorated.

"It was really crazy - my body basically fell apart over the course of 30 days," Spurlock told The Post.

His liver became toxic, his cholesterol shot up from a low 165 to 230, his libido flagged and he suffered headaches and depression.

Babies With Beards

Babies With Beards.
Bearded babies have been part of human life since the moment we evolved from monkeys. During the dawn of humanity, most people had an excess of body hair, so babies with beards were accepted and nurtured.
The phenomena of bearded babies is not to be confused with the condition of hypertrichosis or hursutism.
Bearded babies do not pose a medical mystery at all, some babies are simply born with beards.
Would you still love babies if they had beards? Jesus would! (6418)

Testing BlogJet

I have downloaded and installed an interesting application - BlogJet. It's a Windows-client for my blog tool (as well as some for other tools).

Actually, it was not me who wrote this text: when I launched BlogJet for the first time, it's edit window already contained this text and the program asked me to click Post and Publish button to post this text to my blog in order to test the connection (yes, and the text above is not mine too! :-)... So, I did.

Now I'm gonna learn all that cool features of BlogJet (don't ask me, there are too much - go to their website and read).
