Sugar is an addictive substance, just like caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol. And whilst we all know that a diet high in sugar can cause obesity, heart disease, cancer and diabetes, it is now also linked to a wide range of other serious health conditions, such as poor brain development in children, cataracts - even Alzheimer's. Quite simply, our excess intake of sugar, from the spoonfuls we tip into our tea to the high levels of fructose hidden in packaged foods, is making us fat and sick, and is prematurely aging our skin.

Here again, I will be gracing another major subject with my irreproachable wisdom and my brain-flipping intelligence, in this audiobook. I doubt that there is a single evolutionist who can match wits with me because I am a student of life and of nature. My own self-administered studies are far greater than those that can be offered by universities and schools (not to degrade the importance of them for most people) or by attaining educational degrees and credentials (also very important for the right people).

"They've Done It Again!"
What should have been the greatest moment of Dr. Spencer's life would be a death sentence if he told what he and some other scientists were working on in a secret underground governmental facility called XJ7. Rumor has it that Dr. Spencer and a team of scientists were working on reverse engineering on a UFO that crash landed on a farm about 25 miles from the XJ7 facility. It wasn't the Government that these scientists had to fear it was the aliens that were recovered from the crash site about keeping it secret.
It was Christmas Eve night just like all the other Christmas Eve's night before it, but this Christmas Eve night things were about to become ugly for Santa Claus. As Santa was climbing down the chimney he climbed down one he should have passed by. This chimney happened to be Castle Drac Von Stoller's and the Count was in no mood for any visitors, but Santa had no idea he was climbing down the chimney of a blood sucking vampire. Just as Santa was dusting off the ash from the chimney from his suit Count Drac Von Stoller's eyes were blazing red staring right at Santa. Santa said, "Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas!" Count Drac Von Stoller replied, "What are you doing in my castle uninvited?" Santa chuckled and said "It's Christmas Eve, and I brought gifts to place under the tree for you and your family to open on Christmas Day."

No one could leave their homes because the smog was getting thicker and thicker by the minute. The sun that used to shine so bright that every man, woman and child took for granted was nothing more than a dot like a flashlight with weak batteries that you hit with your hand several times in hopes light will shine.
While the solution I offer to the growing problem of restaurant patrons blowing their noses outwardly and openly within public dining rooms, is simple and that I could have easily stated within a single paragraph, this would be a lost opportunity. I say this because my example and solution for only one problem we may experience during our stay at a public eatery, is simply that..."an example". I am using what might be the single most disgusting behavioral act that can be perpetrated but not hidden, by a fellow restaurant-patron, being that of "dining room nose blowing".
