    Posted by Jack Spade

    I guess everyone has to grow up and change someday and even includes the ‘Kool-Aid Man’

    “Kool-Aid is unveiling a new look for its big red mascot Monday, as the powdered drink brand looks to refresh its image and tout a new liquid mix.

    The Kool-Aid Man, known for busting through walls and his "Oh yeah!" tagline, will now be computer-generated and take on the personality of a celebrity trying to show he's just a normal guy. In past ads, the character was played by an actor in foam costume and had little to say or do besides crashing through a wall with a big, smiley face.” Click here for more

    Looks like all the bad habits I have are now good for me


    The bugs we encounter when biting our nails could boost our immune system

    It’s a habit most sufferers try hard to give up, but it may actually be good for you, says Dr Hilary Longhurst, consultant immunologist from the Bart’s NHS Trust. 

    ‘Unless your hands are filthy, the bugs we encounter when biting our nails could boost our immune system.’ 

    This is because our immune system has a memory, making a note of how to fight every bug it has ever encountered.
