I don’t remember where, but I read that putting cream in your coffee reduces/prevents coffee-stained teeth. Why?
A while back I ate some fiddleheads that were pretty al dente. I had a stomach ache for two days. What’s up? Is there some sort of toxic compound in fiddle heads that needs to be cooked till broken down (like manioc/cassava or dasheen/taro leaves)? Or is it just me? In case of the latter, when you make my clone, can you genetically engineer this defect out? I like fiddle heads and I think my clone would too.
I’m pretty busy these days. I could use a personal assistant, but it has to be some one I can trust. Would you be able to make me a clone of my very own?

Why would flour work on burns?
Beneficial use for white flour
May 30th, 2011 , by Suzanne
Every day I am inundated by shared e-mail. I get political comments, pictures of cute animals, stories that make me cry, and helpful hints. I am amazed at how much false information is in these e-mails. I often do a little google search and find that the facts are flat out wrong or deliberately misleading. I don’t know who originates these things, but most of them are in the same writing style and they are all way too wordy.
I got one a few weeks ago. It was a long, long, long story about someone’s friend who served in Vietnam, a burn victim, and a kitchen accident. The bottom line was that if you put white flour on a burn, it will not blister or scar. I wondered if it was true.
Last week I was cooking up a storm. I had all four burners going on high heat. I reached to stir something on the back burner and bumped the lid of the pot on the front burner. Steam hit my hand – immediate pain and redness on two fingers. I was reaching for an ice cube, when I thought of the flour e-mail.
I didn’t have any white flour in the kitchen, but I had spelt flour. I rubbed flour into both burns. I went back to cooking, still in pain. “That didn’t work,” I thought cynically. I didn’t think about the incident again until this morning. I looked at my hands…no redness, no brown mark. Both of those steam burns would normally have blistered. They did not. In fact, I have no memory of any more pain. I finished cooking and served the meal, never thinking again about pain or burns.
The flour story originated with a burn victim in Vietnam
Don’t believe everything you read!
As a vegetarian for 14 years..if I ate a steak would I get sick?
Honestly, it’s hard to say.
Does water get processed faster by the body than other liquids?
Tricky, but this should help.
Why does coffee and tea seem colder than room temperature after cooling?
Good question! We hope this clears it up.
