Brobible says fans blasted the NFL last night for giving players five minutes to get back on the field after Hamlin's collapse.
The Internet reacts ...
Imagine a coworker/friend of yours needed CPR for 9 minutes in your office and then after your boss was like - take 5 minutes, everyone. and then get back to work. That's basically what the NFL just tried to do. Total garbage.
The #NFL suggesting a return to play after ‘five minutes’ this evening tells you everything you need to know about how the league prioritizes player safety.
Btw the NFL saying "We'll give these guys five minutes to get ready after they watched someone potentially die on the field right next to them" might be their most shameless moment ever. They are insane.
If the coaches and players hadn’t said anything, the NFL would have had these guys playing 5 minutes after seeing one of their peers receive CPR for several minutes

Picking Your Nose Bad For Your Health LAD Bible says professors from Australia's Griffith University say picking your nose could lead to you having Alzheimer's disease.
The researchers say, "Picking your nose or plucking the hairs from your nose is probably not a good idea, particularly if you don't want to get Alzheimer's disease. If you damage the lining of the nose, you can increase how many bacteria can go up into your brain. We have suspected for a long time that bacteria, and even viruses, can lead to neuroinflammation and contribute to initiation of Alzheimer’s disease, however, the bacteria alone may not be enough to cause disease in someone. Once the bacteria get into the olfactory nerve, it's only a short journey - and very quick journey - for them to get up into the brain where they can start causing these pathologies of Alzheimer's disease."

Should I be insulted or not?
