  1. Gas

    by , 12-01-2012 at 11:22 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    While the subject of intestinal gas is not a common dinner table topic, it is something that we all have, and it is significant. Gas varies in fragrance from completely vile and sickening to mildly fragrant and almost pleasant. The fragrance is a result of the blend on intestinal flora and what is in the intestine. I looked up information about intestinal flora, and the information was overwhelmingly inexact.

    There are hundreds of bacteria that are commonly found in human intestines, ...

    Here's something to lower your level of fear.


    These days, governments and some institutions decide what the truth is, and their decisions have nothing to do with actual facts. For some reason the story about high serum cholesterol levels causing arteriosclerosis came to mind this morning. Although arteriosclerosis plaque is formed of cholesterol, there is no known causative link between serum cholesterol and arteriosclerosis formation. There are several candidates for ...

He was one of the very few fundamentally honest ones, but we have had some leaders who were partly honest but greatly misled, Johnson for ...
