Re: Poll: Have you or someone you know said "Stupid uterus"?

It may be common sense scientifically, but that doesn't mean women are actually forthright about it. They might say, "it's that time of the month", or more likely, "it's feminine/women problems". The last I have heard countless times. Uhhhhhh. Just because you haven't heard it d...

Re: coffee with davean and Gordon and Jacque and Shro and natraj

Now I want to drive a tiny little locomotive up to a drive-through window, and get a variety of inauthentic pan-Asian noodle dishes, and drive away while blowing one of those locomotive-horn-sound whistles triumphantly.

What I'm saying here is that Wagamama totally needs a drive-through.

Re: Will this be deadly?--A question for any botanists/chemists

My understanding was that the toxin was most concentrated in the bark and seeds, and nonexistent in the flower petals. But obviously, I could be wrong. I'm most interested, though, in the reaction between the glycosides and the ethanol, if there is any.

Will this be deadly?--A question for any botanists/chemists

Let me know if this isn't an appropriate question... As a kid, I read in a couple of field guides that wisteria blossoms were safe to eat, and I used to eat a few at a time with no ill effects. So I got it in my head that I'd like to make a cordial or liqueur out of them this year. Googling, though,...
