Miracle Herb

I know I spend a lot of time away from you all. I don’t know what the average age/career of the Saynotocrack reader is, but here on my end, I’m a student, and it’s FINALS TIME. I’m sorry, that lacked appropriate tone, let me try again.

It’s
finals.jpg

And so as my brain slowly dissolves into oatmeal and sliiides out my ears, I’ve found myself actually doing research on random things, rather than research on assigned things. This is a new level of procrastination for me.

But my wanderings across the internet have actually led me to a startling discovery. There is a plant, organic, naturally wild, that contains more iron and calcium than spinach, more beta carotene than carrots, and tons of vitamins and minerals, as well as being good for your liver and having antioxidant effects. Can you guess what it is?

Dandelions.

These things.

These blights of lawn care are actually healthier than most vegetables that you have to pay money for at the grocery store, and they grow wild and free, everywhere. Turns out they can be turned into salads, soups, pasta, tea, wine, fritters, literature…they’re these incredible herbs and everyone hates them! They scorn them, they try and weed them out!

Can you believe it?

Yes, because they taste horrible. Instead, we should all enjoy nicer, tastier foods like these…

this…is what finals do to me.

    I remember starting to hallucinate chemical reaction mechanisms applied to every day objects during exam time, but that was about 25 years ago.

    Dandelions are great, you just have to develop a taste for them.

    FWIW, I’m 47.

    I’m suffering through finals as well. too many papers, too many projects, too much interesting crap to read online.

    I can not really say that I remember finals time. And I am glad. it would probably drive me insane again.

    I’ve been reading for some time and now just got the will to comment.
    Big hells yes to the finals time. Mine don’t Start till next week but the prefinals crunch is still a pain. And even now I should be doing research for a paper on Ecology of Chernobyl, and what do I do instead read every damn article on Wikipedia about or even related to the thing. So Good luck to you, and kept up the fun site.
