    The other 40% must not be lactose intolerant, allergic to dairy or vegetarian/vegan. And the 11th-century Chinese soldiers got their armor and themselves turned into shreds. Good luck on breaking Mr. Snead’s record, Mr. Woods.

    Woods is halfway there at age 37. He has won in the 1990s, the 2000s and 2010s.
    He will be 64 in 2040, and, if he lives that long in good health, it’s possible that he may even win something in the beginning of the 2050s to add a seventh decade!

    I love milk, but sometimes it knocks me out cold like I’ve been taking some kind of strong drug. I can drink a gallon a day!

    TW isn’t worthy to carry Sam Sneads clubs … Snead was a GENTLEMAN as well as a champion, and TW has already proved he’s no gentleman … in fact, he proves it every time he plays golf and yells obscenities for all to hear. TW is no gentleman .. no role model … and (imho) not a champion either.

    But Tiger Woods does take lessons from President Clinton and South Carolina’s ex-governor Sanford!
    I normally don’t do a political rant, but here is just one: Gov. Sanford cheated on South Carolina when he said he was hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains when he was out of the country instead.
    He left his 4 sons, on Father’s Day, to go have sex with a top ranking Argentina political leader’s wife, his ‘soul-mate’ is what he called her.
    Now he’s running for Congress, wants to represent South Carolina in the Federal government.

    I was raised in Augusta, GA, about a mile south of the National. Every year, the Masters would have an open house on the Wednesday before play started. I met Sam Snead at one of those open houses when I was about about ten years ond, and he talked to me for a long time and was one of the nicest men I have ever met.

    You must not be a “Mythbusters” fan… Tory, Kari, and Grant did some research about Chinese paper armor. They found an expert in Napa Valley, CA, whot told them that the Chinese used paper armor from around 600 BC to the 19th century. After further research, they came up with a the type of paper, and how the individual pieces may have been made. They used mulberry paper, and used different techniques to create a 1/2" paper “plate” to test to see what worked the best. They discovered that simple folder paper, folded to 1/2" gave the most protection when compared to the other techniques. They then created a whole suit of armor out of the folder paper “plates” and purchased a period accurate suit of Chinese steel armor as a comparison. The tests involved Tory, Grant, and Kari wearing both sets of armor and running various timed obstacle courses to see how a soldier would fare wearing it in battle. In the final test, the trio attacked two dummies in the suits of armor and assessed the damage caused.

    Tory, Kari, and Grant tested the two sets of armor side by side,and fired arrows, attacked it with swords, and used an antique gun to fire rounds at the armor. Surprisingly, the paper armor held up against all the attacks, although it was a little worse for the wear, and wasn’t quite as durable as the steel armor. Tory fired a Colt .45 at both sets of armor, and the rounds punctured in both cases. The final decision: PLAUSIBLE. The paper armor protected almost as well as the steel and was much lighter than the steel. With the obstacle courses, due to paper armor being lighter, their times were lower than the steel armor.

    Paper armor was checked by MythBusters – it was almost as effective as steel, and much lighter.

    If you quite drinking milk for any length of time you loss the ability to digest milk. lactase, reaches its highest levels in the small intestines after birth and then begins a slow decline unless milk is consumed regularly.[

    Cow’s milk is for baby cows, just like a human woman’s milk is for baby humans. The dairy industry has brainwashed the public into thinking cow’s milk is good for you, but just like most corporations, they are out to make money. As for calcium, the protein strain in cow’s milk, doesn’t allow the human body to absorb the calcium, thus you just pass it with your urine. Research it, and you will find that hip fractures and other related bone issues occurring from calcium deficiencies, occur in lifelong cow’s milk drinkers. Cow’s milk is also full of estrogen, which women already produce naturally, so do you think dumping a bunch more estrogen into your body is good for it? At least 60% of the human populous is proving that once again, just because a corporation that profits by selling you cow’s milk tells you it’s good for you, doesn’t mean it’s the truth. Follow the money.
