Brain expert says orgasms work just as well as drugs at curing headaches

Professor Amanda Ellison, who works at Durham University and wrote a book called Splitting: The Inside Story on Headaches, says that orgasms – and even hugs – are just as effective as drugs at reducing headache symptoms.

Having an orgasm releases serotonin (the so-called ‘happy hormone’), which people who have frequent migraines are shown to be low in.

Antiviral coating on face masks kills Kent and South Africa Covid variants in an hour

Scientists at the University of Cambridge say an antiviral coating on face masks is capable of protecting users from the Kent and South Africa variants of Covid, killing the virus in as little as an hour.

The invisible coating attacks the virus by rapturing its outer layer, effectively eliminating all new mutant variants.

WW2 postcard delivered to Liverpool home 77 years after being sent

A postcard sent by a Royal Navy recruit during World War Two has been delivered to his childhood home in Liverpool after 77 years.

Bill Caldwell was 18 and in his first week of training at HMS Raleigh in Torpoint, Cornwall, when he wrote saying he was "in blue at last".

Mr Caldwell's adult children have seen the postcard for the first time after it was delivered on Friday.

Royal Mail said it was likely it had been reposted recently.

Topping the list is Greece, where an impressive 89% of adults have sex at least once a week.

So "No, I've got a headache is no longer an acceptable excuse" 😀 but of course " No I don't want to" still is.
