WHICH PRESIDENT WAS THE HEAVIEST?

———-——-

William Howard Taft — a.k.a. “Big Bill” — He was 6 feet tall and topped the scales at a reported 350+ pounds, leading to strange rumours that he once got stuck in his bathtub. In fact, after getting elected, the White House acquired a specially-crafted tub that was over seven feet long, 41 inches wide, and weighed an actual ton. Taft was the 27th President of the United States and the only man to serve as both President and Supreme Court Chief Justice.

In 1901 he served as governor of the Philippines, he sent a telegram to Elihu Root (then Secretary of War) boasting that he had just ridden 25 miles into the jungle and back on horseback. Root cabled back: “How is the horse?” Taft got a good laugh.

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR BRAIN’S POWER

Brain 1. Exercise: You knew it was good for your muscles, but is it good for the brain? Yes, definitely!

2. Hydrate: If you’re looking for a little pick-me-up, don’t reach for your usual double espresso. Instead try drinking two glasses of water.

3. Find Stimulation: Listening to music can increase your productivity. Just like the smell of dinner can bring on hunger pangs, engaging all five senses will stimulate brain activity.

4. Think Happy Thoughts: Try to eliminate stressful influences from your life and workplace. Practice relaxation techniques, take a hot bath, or get a massage. Or fry up some bacon. I’ve often found that happiness = bacon.


5. Play Games:
Not Hide n’ Seek. Studies with dementia patients have shown that playing word games and puzzles can increase and even restore mental cognitive abilities.

6. Have Sex: Women will go weak at the knees at the thought of the size of your…brain. That’s right. A lot happens to the body during sex, and much of it goes on in your head. Your brain, that is. There is no activity that increases more blood flow to the brain, enhancing cognitive capabilities.

BACHELOR WEEKEND

By Harvey Tobkes

———————–—————

For this weekend I am going to lead the life of a bachelor. Anita is on a flight to visit her best pal (her art teacher), at her vacation home in North Carolina, so it’s peace and contentment for me for me until Monday, and to be truthful, I’ll enjoy it.

I do not like a cold thermostat setting for the air conditioner and Anita keeps the house at a frigid temperature (76 degrees). While she’s away I just turn the darn thing off, as the hotter it is the better I like it.

I can do all the crazy things that pop into mind. Eat any comfort foods I choose, and eat whatever I want, whenever I want. Sleep when I want, listen to loud music, have a Jack Daniels or 2 or 3, watch the ball game on TV for 3 hours straight, or anything else I like. Keep the lights on late into the night while reading. Stay on the computer till my behind starts to hurt. Try a new restaurant and flirt with the waitress. Spend money on frivolous things; and this is the best… the toilet seat stays in the up position 24/7, I could go on and on.

Of course, unless a husband wants big trouble, he’s got to say to his wife when she returns after an absence, “Honey I missed you so much!” That line also might advance his chances in the bedroom later that night.

But the minute she gets back, her first question will probably be, “O.K. what did you break this time?”
