Skepticism, Medicine and Science News

Some quick news

A study has recently been done to determine why lederhosen is so popular among the participants of the Oktoberfest in Munich.  Apparently it has something to do with visitors wanting to be a part of and experience the German culture, kind of like tourists wearing plastic viking helmets in Norway. 

Another study shows that exercising, specifically jogging, while listening to music can increase endurance by up to 15%. The trick is to match your pace to the beat, and this increased the subjects endurance on a treadmill. 

And, not surprisingly, it has been established that people who regularly upload material to the internet are not doing it for the collective good, but are, in fact, just seeking attention. And I will not comment on the obvious irony of this being posted on a regularly updated internet blog….ehm….
