Wednesday's Digressions

  • I am nearly sure she is wrong but today a State Park Ranger told me you can develop an immunity to poison ivy. Actually, I am nearly sure the opposite is true- many people are not intitially sensitive to it and only break out after some sensitization to the active component of the oil produced by the plant. I have engaged in  conversation about this subject with doctors, physicians assistants, E.D. nurses and Army medics who all confirm the way it works is- your body tolerates it up to a point- then it responds.
  • Barry has mentioned before a doctor not being able to truly know for certain that what they're saying as they provide expert testimony is absolutely true and he is correct. Whether it is testifying to what a person could or could not do in a certain state of impairment or how a person died- there are things they cannot know. Good luck getting anybody to believe it though.
  • BRMC Spread Your Love live in London
  • Ikea uses 1% of the worlds supply of harvested wood every year. I may be the only person who has never been to an Ikea store or ordered any of their products online.
  • Another one of those things that doesn't happen or at best doesn't happen like you think it does- LSD induced psychosis. At best, it happens to people predisposed to a mental breakdown and then- maybe. The crazy thing?  As recreational drugs go and especially considering how long it has been used and the staggering number of people who regularly use it- it is pretty safe and side affects are rare.
  • I am not advocating its use- you oughta wonder though why we believe so many lies about recreational drug use.
  • My children eat fruits and vegetables like they're going out of style.
  • Domestic cats are not mentioned in the Bible.
