"South Korea's spicy fermented cabbage dish, kimchi, could help to cure bird flu, according to researchers. Scientists at Seoul National University say they fed an extract of kimchi to 13 infected chickens - and a week later 11 of them had started recovering. The researchers said the results were far from scientifically proven and if kimchi did have the effects they observed, it was unclear why."

Granted, my experience with kimchi hasn't been exactly scientific, but if you've ever eaten it, you too probably have some vague inkling why... That'd be some strong medicine! :-)

I heard about this advertising scheme on a another blog, that gives away free computers. It sounded like a scam, but after I googled it, it was legitmiate. You have to sign up for an offer from one the sponser companies. I did the free credit report one and canceled before the free trial time was up. Here's the link, check it out.
