Or both. Yesterday I read a newspaper article on a newly-released medical study regarding a drug known as Celebrex. It seems the FDA had some concerns over the drug's safety after debacles like the one with Vioxx and ASKED PFIZER TO DO A STUDY OF THEIR OWN DRUG! And, surprise!!! Pfizer found it perfectly safe.

Whew. What a relief. Swallow 'em if you got 'em.:eek:

Good to know we the consumers are protected! I'll keep that in mind if I'm ever tempted to take Celebrex....

Actually, this fox-guarding-the-henhouse syndrome is not uncommon. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) asked VW to test and submit emissions data for VW cars to be marketed in the US. EPA accepted VW's test results until.......

Bouncing back a bit -- I was re-watching the second season of Fringe recently, and Charlie's wife was telling him a joke, about a guy who went to the doctor to ask if [giving up wine, women and song would really make him live longer]. Of course, the doctor replied "noooooo... but it will seem longer.'

We've got an international membership here, so some of you should appreciate this one.

A Scotsman, an Englishman, and an Irishman are all sitting at a pub enjoying a few pints.

As good as this pub is," said the Scotsman, "I still prefer the pubs back home. In Glasgow , there's a wee place called McTavish's. The landlord goes out of his way for the locals. When you buy four drinks, he'll buy the fifth drink."

"Well, Angus," said the Englishman, "At my local in London , the Red Lion, the barman will buy you your third drink after you buy the first two."

"Ahhh, dat's nothin'," said the Irishman, "back home in Cork at me favourite pub, the moment you set foot in the place, they'll buy you a drink, then another, all the drinks you like. Then, when you've had enough drinks, they'll take you upstairs and see dat you get laid, all on the house!"

The Englishman and Scotsman were suspicious of the claims. The Irishman swore every word was true, but they asked, "Did this actually happen to you?"

Not meself, personally, no," admitted the Irishman, "but it did happen to me sister quite a few times."
