Hello again iiwiiers
I read yesterday that arsenic has been found in an 'Austrian internet health drink'. What on Earth is an internet health drink? Even if this one is Austrian, I'm surprised I haven't heard of them, it's the internet. Oh, the vagaries of the English language! It must be a health drink for the Austrian internet. I didn't know they has a different internet to the rest of us. Or could it be a drink for Austrian internet health? Perhaps people drink it and the Austrian internet is healthier, either because money goes towards maintaining the infrastructure of the people that work on it drink it and are healthier. Oh, it says it's claimed to treat bowel disease too! It must be a clever drink. I suspect however that it's not got the proper medical qualifications a doctor has, so I don't think it should really be treating any sort of disease. Two people in Cheshire have fallen ill, it says - actually it says two users. Users of the Austrian internet, it must mean. I didn't know you could get it in the UK. Must just be in Cheshire. Oh, the drink is sold from the Austrian internet - they probably bought it because they like the Austrian internet and wanted to help maintain it.
I'm reading it as I write, had you worked that out yet? That's what it's an unusual shape with all the Oh starts. Oh, it says the drink 'claims to be a "comprehensive inflammatory bowel disease treatment"' now. That's not so bad. I mean, at least it's not claiming to be a doctor, which it looked like before. Although personally I wouldn't trust any claim made by a drink without seeing what a human had to say first. You might think that's a bit mean but think about it, a drink doesn't even have a nervous system. So it's a bit weird for it to be making claims, isn't it? It then says Under UK law this type of medicinal claim cannot be made about food supplements - but it doesn't say anything about them being made by food supplements - I guess that's the loophole. Although it's making it about itself, so it's also about them, isn't it? So it's still not allowed. I guess that's why they had to buy it from the Austrian internet. Presumably the loophole in Austrian law is that such claims are not allowed except if made by the drinks themselves, so as not to oppress them.
I think they should stick to what they're good at, giving the people who work on the Austrian internet a pickmeup in the mornings.
I didn't bother using Write Or Die to write that, I didn't need to. Or the ten minute timer I got for other things yesterday. I was keen to get on, having started quite late after all the preliminaries. And I'll carry on with it now. It's unusual for me to do it all in one go. It helps if I've got a story about drinks making the internet healthy and posing as doctors to talk about, and it's even better if that turns out to be a confused and it's something else interesting instead. But I don't get that lucky very often. I think this has come up less than five times in all the time I've been doing It Is What It Is.
that's all from me for now
see you around
