PostSubject: So what ya up too?   Mon Mar 18, 2013 10:52 pm

Just thought would do a topic where we can just come on and have a chat about anything really, and people can come here and sort of chat with other that are online at the same time, sort of like a chat box, so what ya been doing today? Hows it going? what game you been playing? Going for any achievements, stuff like that really.

I've been trying to 100% Saints Row: The Third at the moment, So close, Was on till 3 last night then realised that my daughter will be awake at 7, lol so went to bed, be doing the same tonight unless I can actually find some Gears 3 matches, as last night could I hell as like find a horder or beast match. Arrgghhhh.

I was planning on playing gears last night, but realised that Candy and I only have a few days to get the Dead Space 3 DLC done.

I love this game. It's been top draw from the word go.

The Campaign was awesome. It was abut 25 hours and I loved every minute. This more than made up for the let downs that were Aliens:CM & Resy 6.

Man flu is no myth as scientists prove men suffer more from disease

Man flu is not a myth, claim scientists, who found men suffer more because they invest in their spirit of adventure at the expense of their immune system.

Men's ability to turn a sniffle into flu and a headache into a migraine has long been a source of irritation to wives and girlfriends.

But the new research suggests that they are not faking it and that they suffer diseases more seriously and for longer.

Scientists believe it is the male predilection for a "live fast, die young" lifestyle that means in evolutionary terms they have failed to build up their immune systems like females.

That means that they not only catch more diseases but they tend to suffer more seriously, and for longer, from them.

A team at the University of Cambridge came up with the theory by applying a mathematical model to the various factors that characterise males and females.

It predicts that the adventurous lifestyle of the male means that they are more exposed to disease but paradoxically this reduces their immunity.

The reason is that they invest more energy in maintaining the ability to reproduce while ill and also take the view they will be reinfected quickly so do not need to have such a strong immune system.

Dr Olivier Restif, of the University of Cambridge, said: "In many cases, males tend to be more prone to get infected or less able to clear infection.

"Proposed mechanisms include interference between male hormones and immunity, as well as risk-taking behaviour.

Men compete more with each other than females do, because of the male strategy to "live hard, die young' which means they may invest less in immunity.

Dr Restif and colleague Dr William Amos assessed how the evolution of male and female immune defences is affected by differences between the sexes.

Dr Restif said: "An increase in male susceptibility or exposure to infection favours the spread of the pathogen in the whole population and therefore tends to select for higher resistance or tolerance in both sexes if the cost of immunity is essential.

"But above a certain level of exposure, the benefit of rapid recovery in males decreases owing to constant reinfection.

"This selects for lower resistance in males, ultimately leading to the counterintuitive situation where males with higher susceptibility or exposure to infection than females evolve lower immunocompetence."

The finding published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences suggests that 'man flu' is not a myth.

Across a range of animal species, males tend to be the "weaker sex" in relation to immune defences, usually because of hormonal differences.

Dr Restif said: "Our results show that, under a range of genetic and ecological constraints, males and females can evolve different levels of immune defences, sometimes at odds with intuitive expectations."

He said that maintaining the ability to mate was more important to men than getting better, yet for women it was the other way around.

"Under this scenario, the model predicts that overall, females should try to clear infection rapidly, regardless of the relative risk of catching infection," he said.

"In contrast, males are selected to decrease their immune defences and remain sexually active during infection if their exposure to infection is high."

"On the other hand, even if males have a strong immune system that clears infection, they will become reinfected rapidly, so the effective benefit of immunity is low."


There ya go mate :-) "man-flu" is a real thing!!!
