Don’t Chew the Bubble Gum Drink it!

Cue Bubble Gun Style lemonade soft drink tastes like a bubble gum dream.  There’s a flavor that is much like that of cotton candy as the drink rolls around in your mouth on the way down your gullet.  The slim can soda costs about one dollar.  There isn’t a flavor other than lemonade on tthecan but it doesn’t taste like lemonade.

I haven’t seen this particular soda available before.  We rode our bikes up to the Tedi at the mall in Mitte Berlin where I found this drink.  Germany has a lot of odd and different sodas that Americans especially don’t see too often, or never at all.

What’s your favorite odd cola flavor?

Atlatl Makes a Spear Go Faster and Further

Sherpa Survival AtlatlThese guys show you how to make an atlatl.  It is a primitive technology used to throw a huge dart, not really a spear, fast enough that it would go through Spaniards armor.  It wasn’t heavy enough to go all the way through.  The tip kept it from being pulled out, and the armor kept it from being driven through.  The Conquistadors were pinned in their armor waiting to bleed to death.

A simple dart-throwing stick with a handle on one end and spur (male end) or socket (female end) on the other end. The dart, a flexible spear, mates with the spur/socket when thrown. Typically about two feet long, an atlatl employs leverage to extend the arm’s length to propel a dart further and with more velocity than when thrown using only the arm.  —  Survival Sherpa

It is a simple piece of primitive gear but it harnesses energy in many ways that a hand thrown javelin or spear never could.  The leverage from the atlatl itself multiplies the speed of the dart.  The flexible dart also releases energy when it straightens out and flies.  Together it is an amazing tool set that was used by many civilizations around the world.  Tips were used from sting ray spines to stone arrowheads to create as much damage as possible.

Got a Booger? Pick it! Then Eat it to Boost Immunity!

boogereaterSitting down at your favorite restaurant you peer over the seat just in time to see a youngster pick his nose and quickly eat it. Disgusting you think, just when I’m about to eat this kid slurps a big juicy booger. Maybe, just maybe, you should take a cue from this booger eating brat.

“From an evolutionary perspective, we evolved under very dirty conditions and maybe this desire to keep our environment and our behaviors sterile isn’t actually working to our advantage,” Napper told the CBC.

Supposedly in the new thinking your body is making tasty boogers so your immune system knows whats going on. In more recent times there are more food allergies and similar maladies for higher income families

Napper told the CBC this theory may fit in with other evolutionary theories that suggest people’s improved hygiene over the years has led to increases in allergies and immune diseases.

The so-called “hygiene hypothesis” is a theory that early exposure to germs and certain infections could boost the development of the immune system, according to Dr. James T.C. Li of the Mayo Clinic.

Children who grow up in rural parts of the country and are around animals seem to be less likely to develop asthma than other children, Li added, though he said the hygiene hypothesis may be too simple of an explanation for this effect.

Recent studies suggest the hypothesis may explain whyfood allergies are more common in families with higher incomes compared to those with lower ones, and why U.S. born children are more likely to have allergic diseases like hay fever and eczema compared with foreign-born children.

Maybe not washing your hands and eating boogers is just what the doctor ordered? It makes sense, your body is bombarded with sterility from childhood as much as your parents or babysitter could. Those kids that live on farms or don’t have someone telling them not to eat boogers seem to benefit from it so it cant be all that bad. Eat a booger!
