I like broccoli, but I'm still an old guy.

That 3:51 was nothing less than brilliant.

Wikipedia: in a 100 gram serving, raw cucumber (with peel) is 95% water, provides 16 calories and supplies low content of essential nutrients, as it is notable only for vitamin K at 16% of the Daily Value.

Who knew? The key to long life is watery useless food.

O.T.

I'm still amazed how fantastic the beer is that my friend made downstairs. Did I say this already yesterday? That déjà vu thing is happening again like BLAM-O! Stop me if you heard this already. Oh Jeeze, I'm turning into my old man repeating everything all the time. The thing is, I don't even like beer. The first taste is sharp and a bit bitter. Then your mouth changes, like a pH change in there or something, the toothpaste is erased or something like that, and the next sip is the whole bottle, 12oz gone, just like that in one swig and you go, Man, this bottle sure is small. Open another and I'll nurse it this time.

This makes me want to go back and do it again. Just take the whole session all over again. And next time add a little malt to the recipe. Because malt makes everything better. If you like beer, and if you have a chance to do something similar, where they use their supplies and their equipment, then take it. You won't regret the decision.

I had a six-pack of really good beer in the refrigerator reserved for other people for over six months. Eventually I used them one-by one for cooking. I have a feeling these six bottles with his personal label that I brought home are going to be gone in no time. It's just excellent. I must go down there and tell those people how great the beer turned out. But I'm sure they already know all that.

If this doesn't work you can always put rosemary on your broccoli. There's a region of Italy where reaching 100 is not that uncommon and rosemary goes on everything. So I ran out to the supermarket and bought rosemary today. Couldn't hurt.

Rosemary Clooney? I bet she came cheap.

The technology will be perfected two weeks after I die......With sufficient garlic and butter, broccoli is edible. It belongs to one of the virtuous food groups. I don't know if broccoli makes you healthier, but it assuages some of the guilt if you eat it within two days of having BBQ......It should be noted that primitive man developed fire not to keep warm but to BBQ meat. Likewise, the cultivation of grain came about not because primitive man wanted bread but because he wanted beer.......Civilization is thus founded on beer and BBQ. The way forward has been shown. I think somewhere within the molecules of slow cooked meat lies the secret to eternal life.

If you don't like the taste of broccoli or cucumbers, let the mice eat them, and then you can eat the mice.
