But yogurt of any denomination is an abomination!!

Yeah, isn't yoghurt just milk that has gone 'off'?

On a different note: Star Track (NB not Star Trek!) just delivered my silver box branded RICOH (and Pentax HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Macro Limited).
No sign of the R word on the actual article though. I couldn't get CFO approval for a K3 now, even if I tried!

Did you miss this?

I only saw it after I posted my comment. So the paste has stayed with you for 50+ years? hociR would suggest colonics.

The English applied colonics; back in 1788 they sent the scum (well, that's what they thought them) of England & Ireland to a new colony at Sydney Cove in what has since become Australia.

Terri Gross interviewed a gal on Fresh Air the other day who wrote a book about our digestive tracts. It details some very interesting and neat things about the path of nutrition as it enters our mouth and proceeds through the system, ultimately exiting the other end.

The book also covers many of the things that go wrong. One of those things is when the critters that live in our bowels get messed up, and the delicate balance goes awry. The doctors have developed a procedure to fix this problem.

A fecal transplant.

Yes, you read that right.

A fecal transplant from the bowel of a person with a healthy intestinal tract to that of a person whose bowels are not doing what they should. The excreta is removed from the healthy person, quickly processed by the doctors (the critters that live in there cannot live where there is too much oxygen) and then placed into the intestines of the person who has the bad critters.

Ain't science and medicine great?
One of my doctors actually suggested that when they first started doing it. I told him I'd gladly eat yogurt every single day of my life but I would absolutely not do that. It's not as bad as it sounds now. They used to insert it live into the colon via a tube, but now they have poop pills basically. Either way it still grosses me out and I don't usually gross out all that easily. :P

But Helios was the god personification of the sun, the giver of sight. Always a good deal having a god on retainer. Probably a good counter-balance if there's a hociR invasion, too.
In the first century AD "helios" meant "sun", as in the bright thing in the sky. Just to check I had it right I looked up Moulton's Analytical Greek Lexicon, 1978. Must admit, my Greek is not up to the classical philosophers of the 5th century BC, and even the first century BC is somewhat obscure.

I accept Helios as a personification name of a god because although I have not actually read much about this god I know that was the kind of thing they did in those days.

Today I had to go to a different Star Trak depot to get my honey. No-one was home to get it when they tried to deliver last week. It came on a wooden pallet, but only a little one, not like bricks.

... Find me a nice 44-3 with compatible focus ring (the one that does not bind against the mount flange) and I will buy it from you.

Steve
Well, that may be a lot to ask for ... did not really see a lot of Helios gear this year! But there were great sections/collections of Pentax bacon & cheese slicer levered devices ... J

The memory if it has.

. . . . . . but now they have poop pills basically.
The author of the book mentioned that the medical researchers were working on something like that. The catch it the good critters that are intended to be introduced only live for a very short time in the atmosphere, since their adapted environment is one lacking oxygen.

So that is creating problems requiring a resolution to keep them living until they get to their intended destination.

Fun Science for a Monday

6 units of fruit, 4 oz real yogurt, 2 bananas, 2 salads, grains,
quinoa, legumes, 8 oz. white meats and/or fish, 16 oz. water, etc. - daily - does the same thing. Dairy fat binds, flesh fat loosens, nut fat clogs.

Recent DNA studies show the Neanderthals interbred with European and Asian tribes, and that specifically European descended humans process lipids differently than other lineages. This may have promoted natural selection of fatter bodies and may contribute to current dietary imbalances.

Our current raging debate about proper eating may in fact be a typical Eurocentric base view, wherein perhaps 'all' people need not eat as a Neandethal. Further, the recent admixing of races and persons of different geographic heritages may well contribute to these dietary imbalnces.

Bacon and cheese might well be perfectly good for some people and not for others - but broccoli is just bad.

One thing we think we know - hociR apparently changes brain chemisrty, or so it would seem. It is a very subtle, subliminal message - an evil plot by Dr. PentaxIsDoomed™ Therefore even I won't buy a K3.
