Hamster Jet-lag

22 05 2007

I know it’s a burning issue, especially with an election here on Thursday, but according to the New Scientist online, “Viagra reduces hamster jet-lag“.  Now there’s a headline I didn’t expect to see…

According to the article, “Hamsters…adjusted more quickly to laboratory simulations of a six-hour time-zone change than animals in the control group”.  Did the viagraed hamsters stand up, have a good stretch, and then go for a run on the treadmill, whereas the other ones just moped around drinking coffee and devouring a half-pack of Marlboros?

Why haven’t Bertie and Enda covered this ground?  We, the people, demand answers!
