What Happened to Skywriters?

skywriting

My brother recently pointed out to me the lack of skywriting these days.  It always seemed like a bold way to get around a restraining order to me, but I’m sure it served some legitimate purposes in its heyday.   I imagine the focus on chem trails from conspiracy nuts hasn’t helped.  Plus, Assad is hogging all the Sarin gas, so supplies can’t be easy to come by.

 

imgross will be diligently looking into a cost-effective manner to advertise through the dying medium.

20th Anniversary of Viagra’s FDA Approval

Today marks 20 years since the FDA officially approved Viagra as a treatment for male impotence.  The drug was historic in that it was the first to be approved in the United States for the condition.

The pills effectiveness is evident by the fact that the Rush and Division area in Chicago has been nicknamed “The Viagra Triangle,” from the propensity for horny, performance enhanced old men to chase young women in the local drinking establishments.  The “little blue pill” has been enormously significant in restoring confidence (and boners) to men wearing designer jeans long after they should have started wearing casual trousers or khakis.

Often the question that scientist ask themselves is “Can we?” when they should be asking “Should we?” The uptick in 70-year-old dads at high school graduation should be significant in the coming years.

Rooster Icy Mint

A dear friend of mine once loved the BOLDER FLAVOR of Rooster Icy Mint and threatened to buy up the remaining stock before it was discontinued.  He did not make good on the threat as he was not financially stable at the time.  I’m offering a reward of $100 for any cryogenically frozen or otherwise reasonably preserved tins of Rooster Icy Mint still in existence.

I often think of what life would be like if I crashed on a deserted island. All I think about it how I would kick my habit of every day eating one low-fat 1% milk fat mozzarella cheese stick brought to you by Happy Farms from ALDI.   What would I do?  Turn to Alchemy probably.

Best not to think about it.

New study shows people have no idea how to be funny while inhaling helium

An independent study conducted this New Year's Eve found that a striking majority of humans just don't have what it takes to make people laugh when thrust onto the stage of saying something funny while having a higher-than-normal voice.
 
Researchers from Northwestern University recorded 150 hours of conversation at 32 different imgross-sponsored New Year's Eve parties to study why people often fumble over their words when inhaling helium from balloons.  According to the results, 97% of adult humans can not make a group of people laugh when doing so.  Subjects generally tend to get distracted by the euphoria of having a high voice (or just the event they are attending as a whole) and they forget to think about what actual words will be coming out of their mouths in the coming moments.  A microcosm of common human behavior, they simply forget to think ahead.
 
"Panic sets in, and they revert to well-known songs or xmas carols, references to television's Alvin & The Chipmunks, and some just say, 'Hi!' then laugh.  That is the worst." says Dr. Marie Davidson of NU who led research on the study.  "Composure is key.  Most people aren't funny to begin with and that, coupled with the added pressure of a self-imposed spotlight during a time when not enough oxygen gets to the brain makes for some pretty unfunny and awkward babbling."
 
The funny 3% entertained parties at all times of the night with helium-based jokes ranging from alt-fart humor to bluegrass covers and included a once in a lifetime coked up/helium-voiced verbatim interpretation of Cuba Gooding Jr.'s Oscar acceptance speech at the 69th annual Academy Awards by imgross ceo Scott.
 
The study's full findings will be published sometime later this year.
