The heat wave and the giant bag
Posted by adianutrition on September 9, 2011
We had a website designer in the office this morning, because we’re upgrading the shopping cart and we’re getting ready to add some more revolutionary products. We’re also having a back to school sale, because if you have children, they’re running around with other germ infested children sharing things crawling with bacteria.
The designer’s biggest criticism of our website was that he thought the bag looked much bigger in the picture than it did in real life.
That’s a criticism I’m familiar with, having been married for 10 years.
I thought I would take a picture of the bag in front of my computer and next to a glass filled with tasty Optimum Orange probiotic drink to give it a sense of scale. The problem with the picture is the bag still looks huge. The first picture didn’t really solve the problem.
Then, I put the bag on the floor, and took a picture of it next to my foot:
I know your first thought. ‘Haven’t I seen that foot in commercials? Modeling footwear and socks?’. Good question. In fact, I’ve been told many times my feet are perfectly proportioned. And they are. But that’s not the point.
If you have size 11 feet, a bag of chews is about 75% the length of your foot. I hope that helps.
The heat wave got crazy in Southern California yesterday. There was a massive blackout in San Diego county that shut off power from the Baja peninsula in Mexico to Orange County. And from the coast to Arizona.
A technician was changing out a part in a substation, and he somehow tripped a circuit that shut off power to 3.5 million people for 12 hours. Traffic lights, cell phone towers, hotels. All shut down. Even the nuclear power plants in San Onofre shut down.
Officials seemed confused about how a small part in a small substation tripped a circuit that shut down the entire electric grid for 12 hours for a major city during one of the hottest days in history. I’m scared that our officials are confused about that, because of all the things to be confused about, I would hope that electricity would be way down on the list.
If you are out in the heat, take probiotics. It will help cool your body off, and it’s important.
Todays story is about the bacteria that live in cell phones. Your cell phone has 18 times more bacteria than a toilet flush handle. How disgusting is that?
Here’s the link:
Bacteria can live on your phone for up to a week, and 30% of viruses make it onto your fingertips just by touching the screen of another person’s phone.
So before you use someone else’s phone, ask yourself if you would be willing to stick your face in their toilet. If the answer is yes, then go ahead.
I leave you with these two tips for the weekend:
1. If you’re outside in the heat, take probiotics. Preferably ours. But if you don’t take ours, make sure you take some.
2. Don’t use other people’s cell phones. Don’t even touch them. In fact, don’t even look at them. This weekend, I’m not even taking calls from cell phones.
Have a great weekend everyone.
