Warning: These Pants Smell Like Bacon

Good news: You can now buy pants that smell like bacon. Thank god. It means I don't have to spend time making my own. Something, something, something... banned from Tescos.

A company has started producing the bacon scented undercrackers, although I'm not really sure why. If you have pants that smell of bacon it's not likely to make me think, “Yum,” it's more likely to make me think, “You need to wash your damn pants!”

In fact, maybe that's the main reason behind these. Telling the meat-eaters about the terrible conditions that animals are kept in hasn't made many people stop eating meat, but make the smell of bacon synonymous with gussets and you may turn a few. Stomachs.

It won't improve your lovelife, I'm sure. No one wants to wants to sniff bacon when they're going down there, Kermit notwithstanding.

The problem of meeting someone with a dog and trying to hold a chat while their dog is snout-deep in your crotch will only get worse.

Any security guard will a good sense of smell will think you're a shoplifter.

But, should you want to buy them, they do them for men and women and it's a company called J&D's. Get them, and you could be the first person to have your pants smelling like bacon since David Cameron went to university.

Pigeons Can Detect Cancer

There are some things in life that make me think, “If there is intelligent design it's not that intelligent.”

New research has found that pigeons can spot breast cancer in women's scans 'as accurately as human experts'.

What is the point of that? Who gives the expert abilities of a doctor to a pigeon, literally a bird-brained animal?

I remember reading before that pigeons have great eyesight. That's good because it makes up for the minged up feet they always seem to have. Great eyes but can't really walk, the pigeon version of Rear Window is a great film. In fact, pigeons can see so well if you take them to a cinema they don't see a moving image, they'd view it as a series of still images. That would ruin many films, but make some Adam Sandler ones better.

Now scientists in the US tell us the birds can detect and identify malignant cancer cells in biopsy samples and mammogram scans. If the junior doctors weren't going on strike before they would after this. If you are replaced by a computer that's one thing, but if a trained bird gets your job you'd be rather miffed.

Prof Richard Levenson said: “With training and food reinforcement, pigeons do just as well as humans.” It could be a great saving for the NHS as you can feed the birds for tuppence a bag, I remember hearing.

Pretty soon the hospitals could be filled with animals as recently researchers have been discovering how dogs can “smell” if you have cancer. I'm not sure how the dogs let you know about this, I hope it's not just by sniffing the affected area a lot, or my gusset needs checking.

That's more impressive than the pigeon trick, because for a pigeon to detect you have cancer they still need to do a biopsy, and I don't think they're very good at that bit.

I have a theory that cats can probably smell cancer too. They just don't care enough to tell you.

This Music Will Make You Fitter

Recently there has been a lot of worry about drugs in sport. That's one of the main reasons Bridge wasn't allowed to be considered a sport, most people who play it are on something for the arthritis, blood pressure and cholesterol.

Mo Farah has been been investigated to see if he was caught up in the scandal. I hope the investigation was respectful, because if he goes on the run they'll never catch him.

And Paula Radcliffe was all but mentioned by an MP which brought awkward questions about her record. It can't be that hard to get a urine sample from her, just follow her with a cup.

Thankfully there's something that can stop all this silly drug using in sport. You don't need it. Scientists have found that listening to music by Eminem can boost athletic performance by 10%. Either we embrace this and play Eminem music to all athletes or we ban it as a performance enhancing substance. You'd still get runners using it during training but stopping before the race so they pass the test. The test would be to play that song from Dido and if they say, "Oooh, Eminem," you've got 'em.

Songs including Lose Yourself and Without Me have been found to "significantly" increase power and endurance during prolonged periods of intensive exercise. That's odd because in NLP "Lose Yourself" isn't the most positive of suggestions for a runner. The only sport that would suffer even more from that suggestion would be orienteering.

Researchers spent three months working with the British swimmer Ben Hooper to create a "soundtrack to success". Results show that the music of Bob Marley is likely to cause fatigue and a lacklustre performance. So Eminem is a replacement for amphetamines and Marley is a substitute for marijuana. This research will do the drug dealers out of business.

The study by Hartpury College found for a track to help with performance the lyrics had to "strike a chord with the test subject".

It's great that the music of Eminem can help someone achieve better results but if the person you're working with really gets lyrics about a guy who writes letters to celebs, gets drunk and locks his girlfriend in the boot of his car, maybe you'd be safer working elsewhere.
