    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.

    Thanks,

    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?

    Thanks,

    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
