"Stayin Alive" Helps You Stay Alive 31

Posted by samzenpus
from the truthful-advertising dept.
In a small study conducted at the University of Illinois medical school, doctors and students maintained close to the ideal number of chest compressions doing CPR while listening to the Bee Gees hit, "Stayin' Alive." At 103 beats per minute, the old disco song has almost the perfect rhythm to help keep accurate time while doing chest compressions. The study showed the song helped people who already know how to do CPR, and the results were promising enough to warrant larger, more definitive studies with real patients or untrained people. I wonder what intrinsic power is contained in "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?"

The issue is not skip protection. The issue is damage to the unit. No hard drive that I am aware of was meant to be bounced up and down for an hour or more.

I am frankly surprised at all the people who have responded to this, "D00D I RUN ALL TEH TIME WITH IT NO PROB". You can use a stack of running ThinkPads as a Reebok Step replacement, too... for a while.
