Knee-jerk nukes

Britain joined the United States’ invasion to oust the Taliban in 2001 because it feared America would “nuke the shit” out of Afghanistan, the former British ambassador to Washington reportedly told a television documentary to be screened Saturday. In comments printed in advance in the Daily Mirror tabloid on Monday, Christopher Meyer said that fear explained why Prime Minister Tony Blair chose to stand with US President George W. Bush in his decision to invade Afghanistan in the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks — to temper his aggressive battle plans.

“Blair’s real concern was that there would be quote unquote ‘a knee-jerk reaction’ by the Americans … they would go thundering off and nuke the shit out of the place without thinking straight,” Meyer reported told the documentary, according to the Mirror.

It slices and dices no more

Yes–you heard that right. The company that made Ron Popeil a household name has announced that it will try to continue operations while it works out a plan to pay its debts.

But wait, there’s more! The company has reached a non-binding agreement with a new buyer, but it’s not former owner and founder Popeil. The man considered to be the father of the infomercial is too busy working on his latest invention — a home turkey fryer.


Fountain of youth in a bottle

P.T. Barnum said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.”

So explains the success of Enzyte Bob, as well as various and sundry weight-loss drugs, diets, and schemes, including reviving the careers of several over-the-hill (and overweight) athletes.

Build a better mousetrap, the saying goes, and the world will beat a path to your door. But, coming up with something that sounds too good to be true, and often is, seems to be the way to riches for many in our self-indulgent society. When a British company comes up with an anti-aging “miracle serum”, is there any wonder that the manufacturer cannot keep up with the demand? Ol’ P.T. is having a great chuckle…..

Nick Watt of ABC News has the story:

protectandperfect.jpgSince time began people have been trying to reverse its ravages. Now Stewart Long, a mild-mannered product developer at Boots, thinks he cracked it. It’s a serum called No. 7 Protect and Perfect.

“It makes your skin visibly younger looking in four weeks,” Long said with confidence at his laboratory in Nottingham, England.

People believe him because Dr. Rachel Watson — a renowned dermatology researcher at the University of Manchester — endorsed the serum in an academic paper and then on television. She specializes in sun damage and skin aging.

My first question when I met Watson was this: Do you use this serum? The reply: “Yes, I do actually.”

Protect and Perfect has been in stores since 2004, gathering a small but enthusiastic following. Then it was featured in a BBC documentary analyzing the claims of beauty products.

The bottle appeared on screen for less then three seconds. That’s all it took for a 21-week stock to sell out in two days. Now Boots can’t make the stuff fast enough.

After our chat with Long, “Nightline” went to the factory where the serum is made. They’d run out of bottles. The supplier can’t keep up with the demand. For more than a month, 1,500 bottles of serum were rolling off the production lines every hour, 24 hours a day.
