Hello everyone, I hope you are all feeling well this week-end. Myself, I was a bit under the weather on Friday. I even called in sick which is a rarity for me to do. I think it was a 24 hr virus, since I feel much better today. Thanks to all that wished me well, and offered advice toward a speedy recovery. Of course I didn't barf, but I did expel much body matter.
Much body matter! Projectile expulsion of much body matter! And often!
Since even I don't want to hear any more about that subject, that doe's give me the segue' into my educational post of the week. Wonderous facts about the Human Condition............

If it weren't for the slimy mucous that clings to and lines the walls of your gut, your stomach would readily digest itself.

And all in all the human body comprises enough fat to make 7 bars of soap. Enough iron to make a medium nail. Enough potassium to explode a toy cannon. Enough lime to white wash a small chicken coup. Enough sugar to fill a small jam jar. And enough sulfur to rid a dog of fleas.
And you thought you were just a hank of hair and a piece of bone, and was a walkin talkin, honey-comb!....G-Mans Educational post of the week. Peace!
