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.

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.

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.A student said to his master: "You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?" The master replied: "It is better to be a warrior in a garden than to be a gardener in a war." - unknown/Chinese

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.'Consciousness is not simply a sensory-perceptual affair, a matter of mental imagery, as the contents of our mind would have us believe. It is deeply enmeshed with the brain mechanisms that automatically promote action readiness' - Jaak Panksepp
