One of the best memes from the Mike Barwis era was about his love of chocolate milk (of course the best one was about his pet wolves). This study from the University of Texas at Austin proves that chocolate milk is indeed the correct drink of choice for athletes of any type.
After riding a bike for 90 minutes at moderate intensity, then for 10 minutes of high intensity intervals, 10 trained cyclists had significantly more power and rode faster (reduced their ride time by an average of six minutes) when they consumed low-fat chocolate milk rather than a carbohydrate sports drink or calorie-free beverage.
Compared to the other recovery drinks, chocolate milk drinkers had twice the improvement in maximal oxygen uptake after four and a half weeks of cycling, which included intense exercise five days a week, with each exercise session followed by one of the three recovery beverages. Maximal oxygen uptake is one indicator of an athlete's aerobic endurance and ability to perform sustained exercise. The study included 32 healthy, amateur male and female cyclists.
I stumbled upon this link to rename the Austin garbage dept. - http://austin.uservoice.com/forums/95799-new-department-name-solid-waste...
There are 17 pages of creative and funny user submitted ideas for the new name.
A few of my favs ares: FLOATER - The Dept of Filth Litter Outreach Abatement Trimmings Education & Recycling
Solid Waste Service Dept 2 - Electric-Boogaloo
Austin Dept. of Are You Gonna Eat That?
Bea Arthur says "Who put that there?"
2-Girls-1 Treatment Plant
The Imperial Dump
I'm so wasted!
Given that we have several MGoBloggers located in the Austin, TX area I figured maybe we could help them rename their garbage dept. by coming up with some good Buckeye offerings.
I have already submitted and awaiting approval on:
Together, we can help out the fine residents of Austin by "Trashing" some Buckeyes...
