    That made me LMAO....

    My dad hadn't tended his garden for about two years, so I hired a mulcher and hacked it down with a metal tri-blade strimmer, I 'borrowed' from work, found a bag of (un)frozen peas that had been in the garden for gods knows how long, chucked it through the mulcher, then had to go lock meself in the house until one, the smell had gone and two, I'd stopped heaving....

    • It's October..... National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.. here in the US... Interesting facts I just read;

      What are the key statistics about breast cancer?
      Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. About 1 in 8 (12%) women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.

      The American Cancer Society's estimates for breast cancer in the United States for 2013 are:

      About 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
      About 64,640 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
      About 39,620 women will die from breast cancer
      After increasing for more than 2 decades, female breast cancer incidence rates began decreasing in 2000, then dropped by about 7% from 2002 to 2003. This large decrease was thought to be due to the decline in use of hormone therapy after menopause that occurred after the results of the Women's Health Initiative were published in 2002. This study linked the use of hormone therapy to an increased risk of breast cancer and heart diseases. Incidence rates have been stable in recent years.

      Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. The chance that breast cancer will be responsible for a woman's death is about 1 in 36 (about 3%). Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1989, with larger decreases in women younger than 50. These decreases are believed to be the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment.

      So, women get a month for boob cancer.... Before anyone gets their thong in a knot, I don't think its a bad idea to promote breast cancer awareness. Men die from breast cancer too, though it is rare, it's a good idea to promote cancer awareness.

      More interesting cancer info:

      Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. The American Cancer Society’s estimates for prostate cancer in the United States for 2013 are:

      About 238,590 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed
      About 29,720 men will die of prostate cancer
      About 1 man in 6 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.

      Prostate cancer occurs mainly in older men. About 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older, and it is rare before age 40. The average age at the time of diagnosis is about 67.

      Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. About 1 man in 36 will die of prostate cancer.

      Anyone ever heard of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month?

        It's called Movember.

        Just as ovarian cancer rates would be much, much lower if women didn't ovulate so much (ie spent more time knocked up or nursing), breast cancer rates would be much lower if women breastfed more (I'm smug, I may have only had one kid, but I kept nursing him for a number of years). I'm not sure that such correlations can be drawn with prostate cancer - but cleaning the pipes regularly can't hurt, surely. (BINGO)

        Ovarian and breast cancer tend to strike much younger than prostate cancer, which might be why they get more attention - these cancers kill the mothers of young families and are a economic/social tragedy as well as a personal/emotional one.
        I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

          I'm all for any form of cancer awareness really, weird how the contraction and death rates are virtually the same between both forms.

          Here's what I found in the UK, not sure what the percentages are between our's and your population mind, but wouldn't mind betting the ratios pretty close.
          Prostate cancer statistics are presented here.

          In 2010, 40,975 men in the UK were diagnosed with prostate cancer.
          In 2010 there were 10,721 deaths from prostate cancer in the UK.
          In 2005-2009, 81.4% of adult prostate cancer patients in England survived their cancer for five years or more.

            They're all tragic really, but I see where you're coming from.

            • Interesting that the rates for breast cancer went down so much with the decrease in HRT. I took it for under six months because I hadn't been able to sleep through the night from the flashes for a month and was kind of losing my mind. I quit as quickly as possible.

              Get your exams boys and girls. It's a drag to die from anything; it's a super drag to die from something treatable if caught early enough.
