Drug researchers have been trying for at least as long as regular Viagra for men to make a version of the same for women.

Sometimes, they’ve even gone as far as testing regular Viagra on women for the same effects.

And of course, results were inconsistent.

Well, just a few days ago, the FDA approved the newest drug-salvo in that pleasure war, Addyi.

But unfortunately, if it’s a victory at all, it’s a Pyrrhic one…

Thus far in human history, wearing a man-skirt seemed only good for making a guy look like a trainspotting soccer hooligan to be avoided at all costs.

Well now SCIENCE! has come to the rescue and theorized an actual benefit to the traditional garb, besides winning your FREEEDOM! from the English.

The Kilt-loving Dr. Erwin Kompanje from Erasmus Medical Centre in the Netherlands has done a meta-analysis of the sparsely-available literature.

And his conclusions are that regimental-style kilt-wearing provides perhaps the perfect environment to boost male fertility…

Video: Because Science Explores DareDevil-Like Sensory Superpowers That You Might Have Too


 
In this video, Nerdist.com’s “Because Science” explores a few of the things that make DareDevil extraordinary, and how some real-life adaptations show we’re already a little bit like him.

While he learned to “see” the world using sound, the name “Bat Man” was already taken, “Submarine Man” seemed too nautical, -and so DareDevil it was.

-And though he can also Smell & Feel more than a normal person, it turns out that his bat-like Echo-Location is something un-super people can do too.

[-at least in early trials]
So, forget the miracle cure-stories of the Georgia doctor and the Texas nurse; for now.

A group of medical aid organizations from the United Kingdom, Norway & France made it all possible, crunching a normally years-long process down to 12 months or less to get Merck’s vaccine out there and save at least 4,000+ people.

The bigger takeaway is, if they can do this well, this fast, with something as fearsome as Ebola, can the end of other serious viruses be far behind?…

Wow.

First it was our old friend Vioxx that caused about 140,000 heart attacks in the early 2000s.

As a result, the FDA began warning people about the risk of heart attack and stroke with this class of meds as far back as 2005.

Still further, it seems biotech researchers suspected those risks for as-long-as 15 years; at least in high-dose cases.

Well Now: The FDA is putting its foot down still further and ramping up warnings on even garden variety…
