But how can you walk around if the landscape hasn't been painted over?  :?

IME the best weight-loss practice is to get a decent amount of outdoor exercise

That's my main problem.  By virtue of my job, I'm not allowed to be more than five minutes from the building while on duty.  I mean, I could just do laps around the building, but I suspect after the fifth pass, someone might get suspicious and shoot me.

Because I used to live in the middle of nowhere, I did ride my bike and walk lots to get anywhere.  On top of martial arts classes, swimming lessons and a few other things.  Which is one reason I may look at going to a boarding school in the countryside, at some point.  I'm not cut out for an all-tarmac environment.

Ugh, that sounds wretchedly tedious. :(

Yeah, I considered that, but I actually don't like bananas all that much. 

Besides, this way I can build up rage and explode it over my students when they least expect it.  Serves the little bastards right.  Lately I've been a bit too "meh" with them, so uncontrollable anger will keep them off balance.

frozen Banana (peel first) + buttermilk + blender = awesome milkshake.

also, buttermilk is kind of like yoghurt sorta.

but then if you simply don't like the flavour of banana, that won't help.

I personally believe it is morally reprehensible to pass on this colony to sick or healthy friends when, to date, so little is known about its proper use. At present there are no credible, recent studies as to the safety or usefulness of Kombucha, despite decades of hype.

Basically that's where I got that from - I hadn't read the whole article recently, just recalling the original article hosted on Fungi Perfecti from memory.

So, a bit of hyperbole on your part.

I dunno about hyperbolic - he did say he thinks it's morally reprehensible to pass the colony on -

I'll make sure to get my citations in order better to avoid such misunderstandings

This is a totally insignificant argument, but I dislike people who weasel around.

Speaking of fermented, Anyone familiar with kombucha?

I've been an off & on advocate of drinking it - tons of probiotics, etc. There's some interesting claims made for it, although folks like Paul Stamets claim they wouldn't touch it -

You misquoted someone. Just sack up and own it. It's not like you're going to lose face by going "Oh, I guess that's not at all what he said". FFS.

The most condemning paragraph quoted:

Quote
Those who might benefit from Kombucha need a credible and experienced professional who could best prescribe and administer it. I do not see the advantage of taking Kombucha by people in good health. Given the detrimental effects seen from prolonged exposure to antibiotics, the repeated, long term use of Kombucha may cause its own universe of problems. I wonder about those people who have adverse reactions to antibiotics? What about those with sensitivity to the microorganisms in Kombucha? I personally believe it is morally reprehensible to pass on this colony to sick or healthy friends when, to date, so little is known about its proper use. At present there are no credible, recent studies as to the safety or usefulness of Kombucha, despite decades of hype.

??? People have been drinking that stuff for thousands of years, haven't they?

Oh, have they?

Quote from: WP
The recorded history of kombucha began in Russia during the late 19th century.[citation needed] In Russian, the kombucha culture is called čajnyj grib чайный гриб (lit. "tea mushroom"), and the drink itself is called grib гриб ("mushroom"), "tea kvass" чайный квас, or simply kvass, which differs from regular kvass traditionally made from water and stale rye bread.

Some promotional kombucha sources suggest the history of this tea-based beverage originated in ancient China or Japan, though no written records support these assumptions (see history of tea in China and history of tea in Japan). One author reported kombucha, famously known as the "Godly Tsche [i.e., tea]" during the Chinese Qin Dynasty (221-206 BCE), was "a beverage with magical powers enabling people to live forever".[3]

:lulz:

I read up about Kombucha a while ago because as you know I'm always interested in strange homemade food experiments. My conclusions were:

- it's not at all as ancient as people would like you to believe.
- there's no conclusive evidence that it's particularly super healthy or beneficial, it contains some nutrients, but then so does instant soup.
- there's no conclusive evidence that it's particularly bad for you either, except if the SCOBY gets infected.

Given these attributes, I nominate it to be the perfect Official Wiccan Beverage.
