    Screw Gerd! Trying to tell me not to eat chocolate, or anything at all with any sort of flavor...

    I will eat an extra chocolately citrus tomato based meal just to prove that I can.

    Who cares. Like my body is going to tell me what I can and cannot do/have. Ha, what is a little heartburn-a little be of esophogeal tearing. Whatever Everything in my body is racing against everything else anyways, and the loser decides it all. Espophagus or lungs seems like a good bet so far.

    Side question- do you get really bad reactions to posion oak/ivy/sumac? If so that might explain the allergy. Mangos in particular have urishiol (active allergenic compound in the afformentioned plants) like derivatives that some people are sensitive to. Strong reaction to the Toxicodendron family usually comes with allergic response to mangos.

    I don't know. I've never actually had any contact with poison oak or ivy. Which is kind of amazing, considering how many times I've gone hiking in the forests here. But that's very interesting. Now I almost want to find out what sort of reaction I'd have.

    You're so smort.

    It comes with being a chemist .

    It would depend on the kind of reaction. If you got a minor rash from mangos or pineapple then it would explain it. I've never had either before. I think I'm immune because I've been around people who have gotten it before and went through the same areas with no issues. I operate under the assumption that I'm allergic and make conscious effort to avoid those plants (I know how to spot them).

    On a slightly related note, a cousin of urishiol called anacardic acid is found in the double wall shell of cashews, and is the primary reason they are so expensive; shelling them is a laborious and hazardous task. Though reactions to store bought cashews is exceedingly rare (aside from legit nut allergies) as quite a bit of care is taken to clean them.

    I saw the entire series on Netflix and I think the reference to "spear chucker" is in season 1 or maybe 2. When you watch all of the seasons back-to-back they sort of just flow into one another. I don't know that I have a favorite character. I love B.J. and grew to like Hawkeye more and more after the first couple of seasons. I always liked Radar and Klinger. Potter was a hoot. agree that Charles is a pretentious snob but I do like that they managed to make him "human" as you say. I have never seen Samurai Jack. I will have to look for it.

    Well, since this is a random thought thread, here's my random thought. Big fat wooden sticks are harder to break with your hand when it's raining or when they are wet, because they just bend and if you do manage to break them, they are stringy and held together by a few strands, like a green sapling. I did a kung fu demo in the rain this evening and learned that concrete blocks are easier to break than wood when the wood is wet! I also discovered that big guys are harder to throw when they are sweaty.

    I know the rules of narrative run counter to this, but if the people on Sense8 were somewhat ordinary, they would all be fucked from the start. Instead they each conveniently contribute something....

    Except Riley....Riley never does anything useful and killing herself in episode 12 would have been the brighter move. And Lito seemed useless...until it turns out he is good at lying....which helped a couple of people out in some tiny way and then is also useless for the rest of the series

    But yeah, statistically most of the people in a cluster should be average, rather useless people. Like myself.
