Not that this has anything to do with anything, but i am currently reading Trotsky's History of the Russian Revolution. A fascinating document of a time.
Avatar 9:24pm Hubig Pie:

The flowers are spicy, watercress is a type of nasturtium
Avatar 9:26pm coelacanth∅:

another tasty flower i've grown a lot of is borage. they taste like cucumber and they're beautiful. i tried to give them to a friend who owned an ice-cream (etc) shop who made ice-cream cakes and such but she wasn't even interested to try them.

if i had fritos for breakfast, i might eat a few handfuls of watercress, parsley (my favorite) or arugula in a fairly lame attempt to "balance it out"

i love salty. salty + sour + spicy = even better!
i used to rationalize it because i have very low blood pressure but i still probably eat too much salt.

Greetings, earthlings! We're going to Russia this evening! Glad to have Vanya onboard to keep an eye out on the errors! Gonna be lots of colluding, so put your best telnyashka on! It's always off the cuff but yes lots to type! Thanks fer being here these last few teenage days of the 21st century!

I was just now doing some music research on Youtube when I noticed a clever song title in the sidebar ,"If You Have a Fungus Do This Immediately". then realized it wasn't a song.

Borage is great. Plant it once and it reseeds so prolifically you never need to plant it again. The flowers are pretty in summer drinks.

  9:56pm P-90:

... still trying to wrap my head around the concept of “these last teenage days of the 20th Century.”
When you put it that way, Daniel, I find myself suddenly experiencing a kind of separation anxiety for the decade that hadn’t occurred to me before.
Avatar 9:56pm coelacanth∅:

melinda (@9.42) it's got to help a little bit right!
...and it's funny -that was my experience with borage in my own garden,"upstate"; but when i planted seeds in my sister's yard (same brand) they didn't want to live. the ones that survived at all were leggy and weak and barely flowered. still haven't figured that one out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Michael 98145:

@coel, maybe too much water ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm Michael 98145:

Avatar 10:03pm coelacanth∅:

Michael, too much water could not be it. too little light seems unlikely too. they weren't in all-day full-sun, like in my own garden, but still what would be called "full sun".

Oh boy is this show gonna be something!

i've already committed myself to going out to see a band tonight. a mostly turkish music band that only plays 2-3 x/year, when the singer is here visiting.

i wiki'd chitin the other day, it's the polymer that makes up a primary component of cell walls in fungi, the exoskeletons of arthropods, such as crustaceans and insects, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm ParUbi:

I remember a children's book about a science experiment where the kid swapped his hemoglobin with chlorophyll so that he could bask in the sun instead of eat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Kat in Chicago:

LOL ultradamno

anyways, the structure of chitin was determined by Albert Hofmann, in 1929, the guy who discovered LSD

“Over the course of more than 10 years, since the beginning of the 70-ies to the first half of the 80-ies, the head of an ordinary Soviet family, using a reel tape machine, recorded songs sung by his wife, poems recited by his children, his favourite music played from vinyl and aired on the radio and lots of other things. Miraculously, the archive remained intact. The new Klammklang release is a collage pieced together from these recordings.” klammklang.ru...
