Stupid Sign

stupid sign

Spotted outside Lovejuice in Bluewater.

What kind of person puts a sign saying that

The only fruits available are: Mango, Kiwi, Strawberries, Blueberries and Banana

in front of a display of oranges and apples? I also noticed lemons behind the counter, and so ordered a freshly squeezed lemonade.  According to the menu, this is made of:

Freshly squeezed lemons sweetened naturally with a dash of grape juice.

The drink was delicious and refreshing, but I couldn’t help noticing that about half the drink comprised of grape juice from a carton. So not fresh, and not a dash either.

Anyhow, here are 18 tricks to teach your body. Number 5 is brilliant for someone like me who suffers from time to time from hayfever and sinusitis:

Forget Sudafed. An easier, quicker, and cheaper way to relieve sinus pressure is by alternately thrusting your tongue against the roof of your mouth, then pressing between your eyebrows with one finger. This causes the vomer bone, which runs through the nasal passages to the mouth, to rock back and forth, says Lisa DeStefano, D.O., an assistant professor at the Michigan State University college of osteopathic medicine. The motion loosens congestion; after 20 seconds, you’ll feel your sinuses start to drain.

It works!  And hopefully number 4 will also come in handy the next time I have an injection. (via BoingBoing)
