Undeniable Update

Tuesday, November 28, 2006

Sorry I haven't posted any facts lately folks, but I just awakened from a coma this morning caused (apparently) by too much Thanksgiving food. I'll elaborate:

You may already know of the chemical called "tryptophan" - best known for causing Thanksgiving Day drowsiness - which turkeys naturally produce as a defensive poison. Also fairly common knowledge is the mild sedative nature of the fruit of the heroin poppy, the cranberry. What may come as a surprise to you is that if mixed and in large quantities, these two chemicals greatly magnify each other's effects, producing potentially dangerous results.

The best advice I can give is that if you're really going to pig out on Thanksgiving, it's safest to choose either turkey or cranberries, but not both.

i want to know about a common myth, is it true that cats always fall in their paws because they have little mice in ther stomachs that hate highs? and when the cat jump the little mice run to the lower part of the cat effectively lowering their gravity centers?
