    I thought I had trapped wind. Turns out it was Ions. After wearing one of these bracelets from Team Ionic, I am happy to report sweet **** all. As I would get a better result from chugging a pint of unicorn farts.

    That USB thing looks good. My laptop could do with some negative ions.

    Complies with EU regulation? I’m in!

    Short for…

    There’s also gyppy, as in gyppy tummy, a term for diarrhoea mostly known in the UK and Commonwealth countries. This does have the same origin as gypsy β€” a mangled version of Egyptian. Gyppy tummy is noted by Eric Partridge as World War Two services slang for the ailment suffered by British forces in the North African desert campaign, and it was a phrase common in Britain after the War. It seems certain that gyppy was influenced in its creation by the pain sense of gyp, but also built on gyppy or gippy, a slang term for an Egyptian that can be traced back to Lord Kitchener’s army in Egypt in the 1880s and 1890s.

    So, what does “giving me jib” mean? Never heard that one, had a wee google and the few times it comes up all seem to be people who should be saying gyp πŸ˜†

    Indeed. Jib means to balk, to stop, to cease to go on. I incorrectly presumed it was the word you were looking to use but clearly I was totally wrong.

    Infused with Tourmaline. Is that the brand name for EPO?

    Sorry, far be it from me to take it OT. This thread has the scientific potential to not only make us better sportsmen and women, but it may, infact, help us find god.

    But the key ring “pushes out a whopping 500 negative ions per cm3” That sounds like the best thing ever.

    They are also scientifically proven. It doesn’t stipulate what aspect is scientifically proven though, perhaps just the fact the bands exist?

    Even better – your cyclic argument gives my head some gyp…
