I Admire & Like Men Who Can Cry In Public — Especially U.S. Presidents (Like Joe Biden).

by Anura Guruge

YouTube Video.
There are plenty more.

To I, it is definitely NOT a sign of weakness. It is a good, positive sign of: strength, self-confidence, empathy with others & healthy emotions.

I cry. I cry openly. I cry watching movies. I cry every time I see Obama being elected. I cried when Joe got his ‘Medal of Freedom‘ from Obama.

Have you ever seen bloody Trump cry? QED! Proves my point.

I have a feeling that I will be crying a LOT tomorrow — ALL tears of joy & relief.

This is so good. So good. So healthy. So refreshing.

No Wonder The Guys On The ‘Nugenix’ TV Ad Have Problems With ‘Performance’ — They Are FAT.

by Anura Guruge

I CAN’T, alas, escape this stupid & INSULTING TV commercial because it appears on the ‘Willow TVcricket channel, ad nauseum, with ‘FF’-disabled.

It makes me LAUGH.

I am 67 & I do NOT have any low testosterone issues & SURE have no problem ‘raising the flag’. I have plenty of energy & I feel GREAT.

No wonder these clowns have issues. They each need to lose about 40 bloody pounds.

Have you noticed that most ‘middle aged’ & older men who play golf are FAT. Can’t be a coincidence. Cut the GOLF, some walk 8-miles (a day) with me. SMILE.

Yes, there was a Trulicity commercial too — and I objected.

‘Jardiance’ TV Commercials For Type II Diabetes Featuring An OBESE Guy Is Criminal!

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. Link to video below.

Click image to access the TV commercial video.

Over the last few days I have not been able to avoid this Jardiance ad — and it INFURIATES I.


Isn’t it obvious?

This ad is bloody criminal.

This FAT guy, ‘Dimitri’, needs to LOSE weight — not take a drug.

Plain & simple as that.

If he lost 80 pounds he wouldn’t need Jardiance.

No mention at all that he needs to stop pigging out, exercise more & lose 80 pounds.

Annoys me intensely. It is criminal.

We should NOT be encouraging bad behavior & saying it is OK to be obese … we have a magic, EXPENSIVE pill for YOU.

Yes, there was a Trulicity commercial too — and I objected.

Click to access my post.

Diabetes is something I live with every day. The reason I exercise and watch my diet (though not that successfully of late) is for my diabetes.

Then I see these bloody ads.

Every SINGLE man shown is very overweight if not obese. Of course they are going to be diabetic. Obeseness is a leading cause for diabetes.

Lose 80 pounds. It can be done.

The Lilly ‘Trulicity’ TV Commercials For Diabetes Are So Farcical That They Are Insulting.

I have seen a few of these Trulicity commercials on TV of late and they have made me see red.

Diabetes is something I live with every day. The reason I exercise and watch my diet (though not that successfully of late) is for my diabetes.

Then I see these bloody ads.

Every SINGLE man shown is very overweight if not obese. Of course they are going to be diabetic. Obeseness is a leading cause for diabetes.

Lose 40 pounds before you even think of Trulicity.

Lilly should be ashamed.

35-years ago Eli Lilly (in the UK) was one of my networking customers. They were a great company that I enjoyed dealing with. This is BELOW the Eli Lilly that I knew and respected.

Lose the weight.

Why Did The West Indies Send Their Women’s Team To Sri Lanka For The 2015 Test Matches?

To make it worse about 6 seem to having their monthlies and the others act as if they are having some wicked morning sickness.

This is NOT fair on Sri Lanka. It denigrates their performance — though Chandimal’s catch to dismiss Dorothy Bravo was World Class in any match.

This is CRAZY. The World’s First Men vs. Women cricket Test Match.

Let me tell you it does NOT work. It is a different league.

That Sri Lanka managed to score 848 runs doesn’t matter because the West Indies girls dropped at least 20 catches.

This is a bloody travesty.

This week I am going to write a letter to the London ‘Times’ asking for the ICC to displace the West Indies from International Cricket. There is NO nation called ‘West Indies’ and significance and beauty of International cricket is that it is played between Nations.

‘Free The Female Nipple’ Movement — Having Contributed To The ‘Topless Tour’ Deanna Thinks This Should Be Her Next Move.

This #FreeTheNipple material was sent to me, earlier this evening, by Deanna who wanted to know whether she should also support this WORTHY cause given the fun we all had when she decided, last year, that she wanted to contribute to the “Topless Tour“.

She knows where I stand on the issue. Having come of age in Europe I have no compunctions, whatsoever, about topless female. Does not bother me in the slightest. As I have said, many times, and it is easy if you frequented European beaches — “after you seen your first 10,000 they all look the same after that”. I do actually finding it quite amusing the women in the U.S. go to so much trouble to stay covered in the Sun when us men cavort about topless. I would much rather see topless women, irrespective of shape, than gross beer bellies hanging over shorts. But that is just me. I will probably go running topless, as is my wont if the temperature is above 65°F. When I do, I feel bad that I have the freedom to do so, with gusto, while women can’t do the same. Not fair. What happened to equality?

“Female Viagra” Nothing Like The Male, Blue Pill Viagra — It Is What Male Viagra Is NOT!

Female Viagra“, as a catchy headline grabber has been in the news this week because a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ‘Advisory Committee‘ voted to give the go ahead to a drug called ‘flibanserin‘ made by Sprout Pharmaceuticals.

Well, Sprout Pharmaceuticals Flibanserin is ALL that Viagra is NOT!

So to call it ‘female Viagra’ or ‘Viagra for Women’ is wrong, dead wrong and very misleading.

Here is one quick way to explain it pictorially (using a diagram I created).

See the HUGE difference. Viagra, Sildenafil, is basically a ‘plumbing’ medication. It increases blood flow. Yes, women can take it and it will increase blood flow to the genital area giving women a nice glow and ‘buzz’ down below. But that is IT!

Viagra, Sildenafil, in men or women in NO WAY helps with desire or arousal. IF you think that Viagra is an aphrodisiac you are going to be in for one heck of a disappointment.

Viagra does one and ONLY one thing and it does it WELL. It facilitates increased blood flow (in the pelvic area) which in men will usually result in an erection. While an erection is always a great start a erection alone has NOTHING, but nothing, to do with sexual satisfaction. You need an orgasm for that. Viagra does NOTHING in the orgasm department. If you are a man, Viagra, with luck, will give you a good solid erection BUT with that YOU are on your own. If you cannot have an orgasm Viagra does NOT want to know. That is not its job. Viagra is really like that adage about leading a horse to water.

I talked about THIS, at length, as item #61 in “Orgasms: 101 Facts & Trivia“. Hence my easy familiarity with it. Check it out.

Orgasms 101 Facts and Trivia book

Click to ENLARGE (and that is apropos) and enjoy. From page 91 to 93 of “Orgasms: 101 Facts & Trivia” by Anura Guruge. $0.99 from Amazon.

Flibanserin, on the other hand, has nothing to do with increasing blood flow.

It is actually a REPURPOSED antidepressant medication!

It wasn’t as efficacious as they wanted it to be in terms of helping with depression but it seemed to help with increasing sexual desire.

OK, to be fair, there is debate as to how effective it is. That is a different matter. The first thing we have to clear up is that it should not be confused with Viagra. OK?

The ‘Pink Pill’ Flibanserin from Sprout Pharmaceuticals. It is very, very different from Viagra.

The Equestrian High Jump Record, At 8.1′, That Has Stood For 64 Years Seems Incongruous To Me.

eqhighjumpdoodleClick here to get to this Google Doodle.

The record being set in Chile.

I have learned a lot of late by making a point to study Google Doodles.

I saw the above Chilean Colonel Alberto Larraguibel Morales (May 30, 1919 – April 12, 1995) Doodle on February 5, 2013 — the day after they produced a Doodle for Sri Lanka Independence Day.

I had no idea what they were talking about. Though I used to watch equestrian show jumping on TV, as all Brits are expected to do, I wasn’t familiar with the term ‘Puissance’. Maybe I did know it at one point but had forgotten it because I haven’t seen horse jumping on TV in the 29 years I have lived here (this time around).

Google has actually used the WRONG terminology. Puissance involves an upright fence. As you can see from the Doodle, Alberto Larraguibel was jumping over a sloped fence. That is the equestrian high jump competition ad it involves a single, sloping fence — the bottom half is hedge, the top made out of rails. So the Doodle is accurate in that respect.

Larraguibel (who at the time was a captain) broke the record for the the equestrian high jump, on February 5, 1949, at an official international event, in his native Chile.

He was riding quite a famous horse, chestnut stallion named ‘Huaso‘ (née ‘Faithful’).

They cleared, as officially ratified by the relevant sporting body, 8.1 feet (2.47 meters).

To beat the record somebody needs to jump 8.2 feet.

Same record jump, but head on. Does look quite high to me.

I like horses. Always have. I have done a very small amount of riding. I have watched Devanee taking riding lessons. But, I don’t know much about horses.

That height surprised me. 8.1′ Didn’t seem that high. I commented about this to Deanna.

Yes, I know the horse has a person, weighing at least 120 pounds, sitting on them — and I know the difference that 6 pounds make when I strap on my wrist weights to slog up Prospect Mountain Road.

Tonight I had some time. So I did what I had been meaning to do.

The World and Olympic records for High Jump. [I was in the ball park in what I had thought they were.]

Want to guess?

Men: …..8.03′ [2.45 m] World (set in 1993) and 7.84′ [2.39] Olympic (set in 1996).

Women: 6.86′ [2.09 m] World (set in 1987) and 6.76′ [2.06] Olympic (set in 2004).

So, the horse record is less than an 1″ different from the men’s high jump — obviously without the 120(+) burden.

Seems incongruous to me — especially since the horse record has stood for 64 years, one of the longest standing records in sports.
