Fitness funnies

Happy Friday!

Back then, it was injury and infection that got us.
Accidents, malnutrition, and acute diseases, such as influenza (flu) or smallpox, outcompeted tofu and pilates.

Good choice, fellas:  recent research found that penguins can taste salty and sour, but not sweet, bitter, or meaty flavors. They've actually lost the genes for these tastes: each of these is temperature-sensitive, and the receptors don't work in freezing cold, so penguins' evolution in the frigid Antarctic environment may have made these genes redundant.

Sometimes, you just need a cookie.
