I've seen parents give their kids candy and sugary marshmallow cereals all day every day, and then when the kid's teeth rot at insane rates, it's called some sort of genetic condition despite the fact that nobody else in the family history has ever had anything similar. And yet, with everybody running around hyped up on something that's obviously an addictive, destructive drug, weed is still illegal. Go figure.

There's a great book that goes into alot more detail about the history of both refined sugar and caffeine as industries that I read years ago, I just wish I could remember the title. It basically said the same things only in a less humorous way since it also delved into the extensive role of slaves/colonial exploitation in the historic development and continued success of both these industries and had plenty of research and references to back up the statements it was making. If anyone knows the book I'm talking about let me know.

The book you're refering to is called "Sugar Blues" by William Dufty (copyright 1975). Very informative, but hard to find book. It really makes you realize that refined sugar is not food, but instead, a poison if taken in more than very small doses. Such information should be worthy news to be spread to the masses, but is suppressed by corporate greed and the medical-drug fraud machine that doesn't want healthy people, but rather unhealthy consumers.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Last post, but, is it bad that I sometimes inhale rubbing alcohol fumes to relieve tension?

Cause every now and then I'll like, inhale a bit, and then I feel it hit me in my brain, and I just feel, perked up and less stressed.
