How to Lose Weight the (Cheap &/or?) Easy Way

I meant to write this 20 or 30 pounds ago, but I wasn’t yet fully sure it wasn’t an anomaly, so I held off. But I’ve kept shedding the pounds, so I feel inclined to share. You know, for the betterment of society, but also just to brag.

Common Spastic Condition Receives a New Name

From today, nobody will ever again suffer from the annoying and temporary condition known as the hiccups, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

That is because they have suddenly decided to name them after their cause rather than the symptom, in line with current medical naming conventions.
