Learning something new: meat-flavored water

It’s been a while since I’ve done a “learning something new every day” post. But I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share some meat-flavored water with you. Well, not with you, but rather with your dog. The day has now come for your dog to have a sports drink!

GAINESVILLE – A Gainesville startup company is marketing beef- and tuna-flavored sports drinks formulated in part by the inventors of Gatorade.

BioGalaxy Inc. is selling Animactive as a pet hydration drink. Flavors include ahi tuna, filet mignon, chicken kiev and natural.

Much like sports drinks for humans, Animactive is touted for performance enhancement and hydration that lasts longer than water. That could come in handy for animal shelters, police dogs and horses and rescue animals in high-stress situations, according to the company.

The website is “coming soon.”

In other news, the international space station has space for rent, or it will, sorta kinda. Apparently, there will be unused sections of the station when it is finally completed, and that space can be used by other government agencies besides NASA, and even private companies can take advantage of the offer. The catch, though, is that interested parties need to thumb a ride to the station. Gas, grass or a** … no one rides for free.

Presidential candidate Sen. Brownback and professor Jerry Coyne have dueling guest newspaper columns on the subject of evolution vs. creationism. I don’t know where Brownback is getting his science information, but I think he just needs to shut up and move on. He’s not doing himself any favors by keeping this issue alive.
