Scientists say vodka will ward off Sars

Russian scientists claim to have come up with a novel way of warding off Sars - a double shot of vodka.

Experts from the Medical Academy, in Moscow, believe the worldwide commotion over the virus is over-exaggerated.

Leading scientist Anatoli Vorobijev, from the department of microbiology and immunology, says the daily consumption of 10 centilitres of vodka should be enough to ward off the life-threatening epidemic.

Mr Vorobijev said the atypical pneumonia was "nothing special".

He said the flu virus took more lives than Sars and the death toll from normal pneumonia was about the same as that as Sars cases.

Vitali Sverjov, head of the Moscow Institute for Viral Research, also said the molecular method of diagnosing Sars through the polymerase chain reaction was "unreliable" and "prone to mistakes".

There are currently 25 suspected cases of Sars in Russia.

Back in my freshman and sophmore years I was able to drink vodka straight with no problem. That all changed one night where I swore off vodka for good after one too many screwdrivers. Ewwwww. The last they saw of me, I was curled in the fetal position in one of those oh too small "couchs" they supply each apartment with.

Shows how much you know. Despite me passing out from time to time, the <ahem> equipment definitely works when I'm drunk. I have taken it out for a test drive from time to time.

Of course, I know that you would do that to me Nwando. You are probably staring at my pics as we speak.
