Link bonanza!

And now, here are a bunch of things I have been meaning to write about, but haven't:

* Ever wondered what goes into a power bar? Here's a hint: Not food.

* Some of these medical myths I already suspected or knew were baloney (we only use 10% of our brains, shaving makes hair grow back thicker). Some, I have long believed (drink eight glasses of water per day).

* There is now a dating service that matches men and women according to the chemical cocktail that gives each of us our own unique scent.

* Brigham Young was right about the societal dangers posed by unmarried men.

* Are religious extremists more likely to resort to suicide terrorism?

* Is it possible for the tiny Gaza strip to conquer Egypt? Given the popularity of Hamas and the unpopularity of Mubarak, I think the author makes a persuasive argument.

Enjoy!

I have to admit that I didn't read the last two links...after reading the others that have convinced me to stop eating my power bars, stop drinking water I just thought that I shouls stop readind. And i ma now going to be spending all of my free time trying to figure out if LG and I are scent compatible.

I KNEW there was a reason I hated Power Bars. I mean, besides that they're disgusting.
