today i learned – weds 1st nov 2017

firstly, itโ€™s crazy that itโ€™s november! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ #what. secondly, i have man flu and i think i might be dying ๐Ÿคง

of course, the only thing that i can write about in my current state is definitely man flu … itโ€™s a legit thing everyone!

#tdil that a study in 2013 actually proved that man flu might be an actual thing! ๐Ÿ˜ #toldya

whenever us dudes get even the hint of a cold, weโ€™re always ridiculed with the ole โ€œitโ€™s only a bit of man flu!โ€ line … like, iโ€™ve been a dude for 26 years now and can 100% confirm it.

now, however, it seems that the kind folk at stanford university school of medicine ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€โš•๏ธ have found that the additional testosterone found in males might actually weaken the immune system when it comes to fighting influenza (fluโ€™s actual name … not italian for โ€˜influencerโ€™).

how did they figure this out? they studied the reaction of men and women to the flu vaccination. they found that the women in the test tended to have a stronger antibody response to the jab than the men – subsequently meaning that they were better protected ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

apparently, men with lower testosterone levels also had a stronger response and women with higher testosterone responded like the testosterone filled dudes ๐Ÿ™ƒ

to be honest, i think i have a pretty low level of testosterone, so i probably shouldnโ€™t moan ๐Ÿ˜‚ … but letโ€™s face it, if karl pilkington taught us anything, itโ€™s that moaning makes the world go round ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

i think you can probably just take this scientific study as yet more proof that the ladies are just superior to us fellas ๐Ÿ™ˆ … sorry guys, iโ€™ll happily admit that one ๐Ÿ˜…

anyway, iโ€™m going to return to my wallowing and self-pity ๐Ÿ˜ท

peace out โœŒ๐Ÿป #tdil


right, particularly uninspired writing this one ๐Ÿ˜… so hopefully itโ€™s still amusing! if you want some slightly more inspired postings, just go ->here<-
