    Too bad chocolate can’t be used to help diabetes.

    So fishermen can see through that fish.

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    Woah, didn’t know that fact about chocolate. Apparently there’s an antiviral compound in it (and red wine) called resveratrol, but you need a whole lot of it to help. I kinda wish Castano drew a cartoon chocolate bar instead, but no one ever said that smallpox was nice to look at.

    Reading RBION today, I am reminded of Silver’s recent comment wondering if there were lice that peed out of both ends. A change today from the usual RBION gaseous factoids.

    Apparently chocolate was also once used to treat cholera, tuberculosis, asthma and yellow fever.

    Here is a link if anyone cares to look at it:

    So chocolate is good for both smallpox and attacks from Dementors. Nice.

    As a diabetic, Ill warn you not to eat a lot of sugar free candies. IT can play heck with the digestive system.

    I guess the chocolate allowed the patient to die a little happier. Chocolate is my best treat.

    In STEAMBOAT BILL,there’s a famous scene where a wall falls on Buster Keaton but he’s unharmed becausethe only open window in the wall passes over him.

    That was an actual 2-ton wall and Keaton would have been killed if he’d moved a half-inch off his “mark”. Keaton was a “bug” on doing his own stunts—he began as a vaudeville acrobat
