Study Finds Concussions May Cause Alzheimer’s

Study Finds Concussions May Cause Alzheimer’s:  In what may be more bad news for the NFL, a study published in the journal Neurology found that people who have suffered concussions are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease as they get older.  You mean to tell me that endlessly slamming your head into hard objects at high speeds year after year after year after year could have a downside?  Why I’m so shocked, you could have knocked me over with a feather - or maybe even a 240-pound linebacker.

Study Finds Single Men Not As Bad-Off as Once Thought:  A new study about men seems to contradict previous studies assessing men who remain single for all their lives, finding that while marriage usually means men will make more money and reduces the likelihood they will commit crimes, single men seem to have more friends and have deeper connections to them, demonstrate more emotional self-sufficiency and have a heightened sense of self-determination.  Well, they’re certainly right about one thing - single men commit more crimes.  I’m single and I have a rap sheet so long, it would make Al Capone blush.  What crimes you ask?  Why I rob the married men who make more money - of course.  And talk about determination, why I’m completely determined to commit even more crimes.  So there you have it - study validated!

Stephen Hawking's Wheelchair Sells for Nearly $400K:  The wheelchair of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, which was expected to sell for somewhere between $10,000 to 15,000, just sold at an auction for nearly $400,000.  All I can say is, that’s theoretically one hell of a lot of money.  I mean, about the only way I’d ever be able to come up with that kind money is if we transcended into some kind of parallel universe.  Anyway, I hope whomever bought it puts it to good use - otherwise, it’s like throwing your money into a black hole.

“Expected to sell for between $10,000 and $15,000”?  What moron came up with that estimate? The chair new is likely to have been worth more than that with no one’s name attached to it. I know; my son had a power chair and I know what it cost my insurance company. My son’s chair was built in Sweden and, I am not making this up, it had a headlight option (which we obviously didn’t buy).

Yea, I'm sure the technology was quite expensive.  That said, I believe this was chair was the one he used in the 80's and 90's.  I just had no reason to include that in the joke.  But still, the tech and who used it make it quite valuable.

If only Hawking had played the guitar – imagine what that would have gone For!!  Or this guy's guitar!!

Hmmm, perhaps Einstein might play that old guitar song "Telstar."

I hear he played a mean guitar.  The dude knew how to jam.

had my tongue only half-way in my cheek – guitars owned by stars are obscenely expensive:

Einstein's violin sold at auction earlier this year for $550,000, and I'd be surprised if his guitar – if he'd owned one – would go for at least that much.
