Are you a drug addict who loves Vicodin and OxyContin, but find yourself taking a handful of the drugs because one pill, “Just doesn’t do it for me anymore”?
Well you are in luck!!
The wonderful drug companies of the World have decided to make a new pill that is 100% pure Hydrocodone!!! No longer will you have to deal with non-addictive painkillers like acetaminophen or ibuprofen being mixed in with your opiates. You are now free to destroy your life and spend all of your money on the best stuff available!!
One of the pharmaceutical companies that is preparing to release the new pill, Teva Pharmaceuticals, is expecting sales of $500 Million or more annually. (I didn’t realize that many people live in West Virginia)
But watch out drug addicts, politicians are trying to rain on your prescription drug parade. Senator Chuck Schumer is asking the FDA not to approve the pill, and New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman has released a report showing the rising number of people abusing painkillers and asking that the FDA not allow pure hydrocodone to be sold in America. (Party poopers)
Don’t worry too much though, most of the folks over at the FDA have their pockets lined with cash from the drug companies, so this will definitely be approved.
Start saving your cash and steal some more prescription pads you drug riddled Americans, because the street value for this stuff is going to be crazy!!

According to a newly released report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, close to 17 percent of the United States population admit to binge drinking (4 or more drinks for a woman and 5 or more for a man, in one sitting). That is roughly 38 million people nationwide.
But listen to this, the state with the least amount of binge drinking according to the study is……………………………….drum roll please……………………………………………………………………………………………
NEW JERSEY!! (Just another in a long list of things to be proud of)
New Jerseyans only binge drink, on average, 3.6 times per month. That is compared to the highest binge drinking state, Kentucky, that consumes copious amounts of alcohol 6 times per month.
Oh, and we can’t forget about Wisconsin and the 25.6% of their population who binge on an average 9 drinks per occasion. I’m surprised those crazy badgers can “Jump Around” after the third quarter, you’d think they’d be passed out in their seats.
And what age group would you predict to binge drink the most often? Did you say 18-24 year olds? WRONG! Try 65+, who binge on the liquor of their choice an average of 6 times a month. Gotta love it when Grandma and Grandpa get a party started!!
After the Four Loko craziness from earlier this year, many states began banning alcoholic beverages that included caffeine. So what did kids do? Started mixing it themselves, what a shocker. (We’ve been doing it since we were 16, right?)
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, ER visits related to people combining alcohol with energy drinks rose from 1,128 visits in 2005 to 13,114 in 2009. I’m sure it was something like 25 billion visits in 2011 (Don’t quote me on that). You know what else is a surprise, most of the visits were by men between 18 and 39. Didn’t see that one coming.
So what did the doctors find wrong with these drunk and very awake young men? Arrhythmia, hypertension and dehydration were the most common ailments.
I guess Joe’s Tavern better re-think those 3 for 1 Vodka and Red Bulls on Tuesday nights.
Oh boy, here we go.
Only a few days after surviving the biggest Earthquake to hit the East Coast in over 50 years, now we have to brace ourselves for the biggest hurricane in 50 years!! (2012 is definitely going to happen.)
Hurricane Irene is getting ready to slam into North Carolina’s Outer Banks tonight and then head up to the Tri-State area to give us another punch in the balls. Forecasters are saying we could see up to a foot of rain in a 48 hour period and winds gusting up to 85mph.
That is going to suck.
I have a friend who lives in Hoboken, NJ coming to stay at my place for the weekend because officials are telling residents that the whole town will be under water come Monday morning.
I’m just hoping the one old tree in front of our house doesn’t decide that Irene is the storm that will claim it’s life.
I love how dramatic the Weather Channel is, just check out this one sentence, “Hurricane Irene poses an extraordinary threat and is one that no one has yet experienced from North Carolina to the Mid-Atlantic to the Northeast to New England.” I mean that is just fantastically scary writing right there.
We’ll see what really happens. I’ll try to take some pictures of my area. And don’t worry I have plenty of beer and potato chips.
Holy sea cow Batman!
Check out this crazy video footage that was shot in 2009 by Alaskan fishermen, which appears to show a living Cadborosaurus sea monster.
The clip, which is from the new Discovery show “Hillstranded”, shows what appears to be a large serpent like creature moving through the water. It has many prominent cryptozoologists very intrigued and might possibly lead to more researchers heading to the Pacific Northwest to see if they can find any other evidence that such a creature does in fact exist.
The Cadborosaurus is alleged to have been first seen more than 200 years ago and has since been spotted over 300 times by fisherman and locals.
In 1937 a Cadborosaurus carcass was found inside a whales stomach but was never positively identified as a new species and subsequently disappeared.
Personally I believe it is probably just a sea lion, but it would be very cool if it was in fact a new animal. I always find it extremely interesting when scientists discover new species that have been hiding from human eyes for such a long time. Hopefully with some more research we will be able to determine what this creature really is.
Check out the new Discovery show “Alaskan Monster Hunt: Hillstranded” tonight at 10pm.
Woah!! That’s one ugly animal.
A female zebra gave birth to a rather rare creature yesterday at a zoo in Xiamen, China; a “Donkra”.
The “Donkra”, half Donkey and half Zebra, was the product of the zoo’s male donkey having a one night stand with the local zebra slut.
The offspring has the characteristics of a donkey and the tell tale stripes of a zebra.
Veterinarians said that the birth was a little difficult but that the mom and her young ass are doing fine now.
No word yet on whether or not Mrs. Donkey is going to file for divorce.
Check out the video below.
Oops, sorry Spanish cucumber farmers, didn’t mean to destroy your business.
The deadly E. coli outbreak that is spreading across Europe has been linked to German bean sprouts from a farm in Uelzen, Germany.
Yeah, so the cucumbers are actually safe to eat after all. But please stay away from the bean sprouts!
German officials tracked the E. coli back to the organic farm and are conducting more tests to determine for certain that it originated there.
Spain meanwhile is getting ready to seek hundreds of millions of dollars from Germany, for what it calls “serious and irreparable” damage to their cucumber market after officials had originally blamed the green veggie.
I hope Spain doesn’t blame me.
The death toll is up to 17 in the German cucumber E. coli outbreak!!! The German national health agency is reporting that over 1,500 people have already been infected by the E. coli and that the number is going to keep growing.
The rare strain of E. coli, which has been found in Spanish cucumbers in Germany, is causing, “hemolytic uremic syndrome, which attacks the kidneys and can cause seizures, strokes and comas.” That does not sound good at all.
Professor Paul Hunter from the University of East Anglia in England had this to say about he outbreak, “There may well be a great number of asymptomatic cases out there that we’re missing. This could be a much bigger outbreak than we realize right now. There might also be something genetically different about this particular strain of E. coli that makes it more virulent.”
Researchers are also saying that they might never know the exact reason for the outbreak because it may be too difficult to trace back to an exact farm or area that supplied the cucumbers.
On Thursday the World Health Organization (WHO) said that the E. coli is, “A new bacteria that has never been seen before.”
An E. coli outbreak in Northern Germany that claimed the lives of 4 people, has been linked to cucumbers from Spain.
The outbreak also caused hundreds of more people to become violently ill. The Hamburg Institute for Hygiene and the Environment tested the cucumbers and found that the E. coli laced veggies were of Spanish origin.
Researchers are reporting that this strain of E. coli is particularly strong and is resistant to most antibiotics. It has been causing its victims to throw up blood and have constant diarrhea.
This is some gross and dangerous stuff. I’m glad I only eat organic locally grown cucumbers (yeah right).
This type of food tainting is going to continue unless we really focus on punishing the giant sized food producers. That will never happen though, it would cause the price to go up too high on most items and there would be a consumer backlash.
Oh well, guess we need to just stock up on toilet paper.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is having their annual meeting to discuss the World’s largest health concerns.
Top on their list; deciding if they should destroy the last two remaining vials of Smallpox.
And the answer isssssssssssssssssssssss?
Why, you may ask, would we not want to destroy one of the most dangerous diseases in the history of the planet? According to researchers they need the virus, “so they can complete work on a safer version of the vaccine and treatments for those already infected.”
Sounds reasonable enough, but others say that saving the virus may lead to its use in bio-weaponry if it falls into the wrong hands.
The two stashes can currently be found in Atlanta, USA and Siberia, Russia. Not surprising to say the least.
So, should we trust these guys?
