Surprised you didn't know that. You can dilute the sodium and potassium (I think) solutions/ions in your body with too much water, meaning your nerve junctions or something have an incorrect balance and don't function, sometimes resulting in death.

Or something to that effect, years since I was taught about it.

I /wish/

I lie in bed unable to relax until sometime around 3-4, then not enough hours later I spend an hour or two trying to get up and feeling shit for the morning. Unless it's the weekend when I turn off all alarms and don't have a morning. (Which makes Monday worse because getting up the same time every day is healthier; not enough sleep makes you want more, but you can't catch up on what you miss.)

Reading can be a distraction that helps, but there's a fine line between that and becoming too engrossed.

I knew salt/electrolytes were important, but didn't know it could actually kill you.

Might have to carry around a bag of salt to munch on now. :S

remember that woman who died doing some Wii/water drinking radio challenge. I think pretty much anything to excess can be deadly. Personally I like to limit my breathing to a safe number.

Fortunately I have no intention of eating any liver, nor any part of a bear (polar or otherwise), so I should be good there.

I wonder if anyone has done a TerraFirmaCraft mod that works with vitamins & minerals instead of food groups.

I'd love to be able to have on-demand hearing, where I could reduce the amount of shit that gets unwillingly forced into my ears.

If it's not warm tender breast, it ain't going in my mouth.

I like breast as much as the next man, but there's some rich flavour in what our colonial cousins refer to as organ meats.

The asian shops here are like an education in animal anatomy.

I once bought my brother a tin labelled 'Five Delicious Parts of a Duck'. I have no idea whether he consumed them, but I'm inclined to doubt it.

haha. My old flatshare had an Iranian tin of "Sheep's head and feet" that we never did dare open.

Facebook gave me an on this day reminder earlier this week of the time I had the AAAAA Andouillette sausage.

It is a truly disgusting food, in texture, flavour, odour and appearance. If you can imagine the process of gutting a pig for food, Andouillette is made from the bits that gutting is normally meant to dispose of, specifically the intestines. To hear some of my partner's extended family in France rattle on about the merits of Andouillette, you'd think that the more colon and anus included, the better. The worst of all are prepared in homes and farms or by the local butcher. They are also available pre-packed from more commercial sources. Although you might imagine that the cleaning, preserving etc, of industrial preparation would help, and it's true that the appalling faecal odour is reduced, they aren't much better.

My life hasn't improved by trying Andouillette and arguably it got worse.
