Coming soon...exercise in a pill

Postby Cyril » Thu Jul 31, 2008 3:02 pm

Check out this article....

"After a month of taking that drug and exercising, mice could run 68 percent longer and 70 percent farther than other mice that exercised but didn't get the drug."

Should do wonders for marathoners!

I didn't notice you'd started this thread; similar thread on TNTF, which at least may enjoy the benefit of not being locked down soon.

"Researchers at the Salk Institute report they have found two drugs that do wonders for the athletic endurance of couch potato mice. One drug, known as Aicar, increased the mice’s endurance on a treadmill by 44 percent after just four weeks of treatment."

Upon seeing Mennisco's thread, it took all my self-control not to make
a joke along the lines of ``How large is your provision?'' or ``Are
you trying sell these pills?''.

Since I have no self-control left:

Mennisco, how large is your provision?

Now use Your imagination, and you'd better be able to live up to Your handle.

Well, to quote my very first post:

Unable to think of a nick as I registered, I decided to think
positive.


Do not expect to much of me :-)

That aside, I have a long history of having jokes taken too seriously.
If this is one of these instances, I apologize. I have lurked long
enough on these boards to know that you are not a pill-selling spammer.
However, the general look of your post does go in the direction of a
spam email, and I was _not_ joking when I said that your first post
took all my self-control.

I am, BTW, calling the fifth amendment on your question...

I suppose my question could be construed as triply jeopardizing any man's capacity to defend himself.....

I was attempting, with my links, to give information of interest to both the lay person, and the specialist....
