Things which make you go, "Brrrr"!

Wow, just Wow! Words fail me. Not a story for anyone with a weak stomach.

I love sushi but this story gives me pause. Once upon a time I was staying at a nice hotel and ordered a fish dinner from room service. It was late at night; never been so sick in my life.

I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital; ended up taking bayberry, horehound, licorice and peppermint which cured it in 24 hours FLAT.

^ Thanks for sharing.

To the OP, once or twice I had sushi and thought it was OK. A few times I tried it and was not charmed. I think I'll pass from here on out though.

Supposedly some writing in the Dead Sea Scrolls implies that the scripture where Jesus is described as drawing the serpent out of a man involves him extracting a tapeworm. He had some people fasting and this one guy was doing poorly so he warmed some milk, wafted it before him and the worm emerged to get some food and he grabbed it and pulled it out.

Who knows.

Burn more calories than you consume will work with a discipline. I am no one to speak on the subject as I need to lose 20 or so pounds, but if I wanted to get serious that method would be way down on the list of methods to try.
