The Ancient Romans had a lot of strange beliefs, but I guess they were pretty successful for a while. I really wonder how they came up with that though… What led them to believe that animal excrement of any kind would have healing properties? The stuff the animal expended as waste. I suppose there are other instances of poop being used for things, though. Cow poop especially. True story. Aren’t people… Fascinating?

Dear people of the internet,
This short stream of caffeine driven comics goes out to you, as I know it’s a subject close to your heart, as it is mine.
It’s also being studied for possible benefits in diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Caffeine does also constrict blood vessels, which is good and bad. That actually is why it helps resolve certain headaches. Of course, other headaches it may be resolving are caffeine addiction headaches, so…
The chemical formula for caffeine is C8H10N4O2. I’ve seen a few reasons for why you shouldn’t have caffeine if you’re wanting to sing well, but the most consistent is that it causes dryness that results in scratchiness.
The deep sleep thing is kind of a big deal. Yeah, you can keep relying on caffeine for longer and longer, but that’s going to be why it SUCKS to get off it when the time comes. Less/worse deep sleep=sad times. This is, of course, where you say “more like IF the time comes”.
The half life of caffeine being 6 hours means that in 6 hours 50 mg of caffeine will be down to 25 mg. That’s a long time to be hyped!
Here’s a more specific example. Let’s say, hypothetically, there’s 138 mg of caffeine in a 5 hour energy.
69 6 hours
34.5 12 hours
17.25 18 hours
8.625 24 hours
4.3125 30 hours
2.15625 36 hours
1.078125 42 hours
0.5390625 48 hours to get to under a mg of caffeine
So, it takes a while to completely clear out of your system. So much for that 3 PM rule!
“Nonsems” and “ambliance” were written like that on purpose.
When a stroke is happening, the procedure is just calling 911/getting them to a hospital.
On top of the numbness and tingling (especially on one side), trouble walking/balancing, and trouble speaking, there also may be vision changes, confusion, or headaches.
Chewing on willow bark does work. I remember this from scouts, a while back. That’s one less thing to worry about when you’re lost in the woods! …Assuming there’s willow.
