Canadian study suggests men are weak

A recent study in Canada revealed that heavy snowfall increases heart attack risk for men. And even without going into details, one can make an educated guess why it might be so, especially considering women aren't affected at all by heavy snowfall.

According to the study the chance of getting a heart attack increases 16 percent after a heavy snowfall (at least 20 cm), as does the chance of dying from the heart attack (34 percent more likely).

The educated guess? Men today are not in a good enough physical shape to handle the snowfalls.

"We found that both the quantity and duration of snowfall were associated with an increased risk of heart attack for men but not women. It may be that men shovel more than women, particularly after heavy snowfalls. It is also possible that men put more effort into shoveling, and have a tendency to overdo it." Dr. Nathalie Auger of the University of Montreal said to Reuters.

For the study hospital data of more than 125 000 admissions was examined.

While the creators of the study didn't really have the data to say whether the men actually did any shoveling at all, to The Cheers team the results seem sort of obvious. On average men are too weak for shoveling these days.

While Trump would probably disagree with everything here, that's exactly what he did. Of course, he would probably say that he didn't fire anyone, but Sessions submitted his resignation letter himself. Which is true, but we all know how things like this are being done. He would also probably say that Session wasn't sent away because of the probe but because he was doing bad job in general. And, of course, he would most definitely lie about his own lies.
