tonight we are printing our first at the
bar with a show all about coughing chin chin its Gibran three sheets to the wind its breweries would you mind stepping out of the
vehicle please its alum Davis the buzzers are on the house so what can
I get you Prue goes Sal goes dough goes and Alan goes right when might it be a good idea to
order 300 gin and tonics Tuesday in the week let’s think it through
what is engine and quick mean when mean is in and why might you want Quinn in
isn’t it good for stopping mosquitoes biting you know doesn’t stop mosquitoes
biting you but it used to be the treatment for malaria malaria yeah so
the problem is that today’s tonic contains very little so in order for it
to be effective you would really have to drink 300 gin and tonics every single
day I accept that prescription I mean don’t try it there’s too much
Quinn in it unbelievably bad for you can get abnormal heart rhythms you can get
double vision I think that’s the gin some of the malaria pills make you blind
will make you yes I mean some of the new stuff is also I think not very good I’ve
known people to have what can only be described as a psychotic reaction
usually while sharing a tent with me which is not fun crazy dreams oh wow
it’s great I’ve bought a load the only person I can think you might have
accepted the actual challenge of 300 gin and tonics a day is a Karissa Dixon rice
you may remember one half of the TV chef jus two fat ladies she once got so ill
the doctors thought she had malaria she had something called sticky blood it’s a
condition that is usually suffered by people who have taken too many quinium
tablets over a long period it turned out she had Quinny and poisoning from too
many gin and tonics she was drinking six pints of tonic a day over 12 years I
don’t even know what Creon is it comes from the bark of the cinchona tree Oh
so the interesting thank you darling look at me our selfie
so the Quechua people who were the indigenous people of South America they
knew about it long before the Europeans because they lived it because they lived
there exactly Europeans are a massive disadvantage
with the fauna of South America yeah and the flora but the really sad thing is
that it was the Europeans who brought malaria to them so the malaria did not
exist and now we have to go there to catch it well it’s a very long chemical
process and it was first done in 1820 by two French scientists but it changed the
face of the world why might that be you could just go to more horrible places
well you could go to places that you wanted to colonize no no the whole map
exactly right Peru you could suddenly go to India and parts of Africa give them
gonorrhea instead yeah and we’ll give you a niche in an uncomfortable place
queen interest is the cinchona tree so it’s like a beech tree to me looks like
a good climber do you not think you could easily climb up that not for a fat
person but it saves the reputation of gin because when Queen Ian was
discovered as a thing that would possibly cure malaria gin which had been
the drink of the of the poorer classes suddenly became a drink that everybody
was happy to drink gin and tonic became quite things nothing the drink of the
colonies yes sitting in the club and having a gin and tonic
Quinny and also responsible for the invention of modern dyes so there was a
gentleman called Sir William Henry Perkin and he wanted to make a synthetic
version of the drug he failed actually so there is it was only 18 when he did
there he is 18 it is actually before and after
picture 310 it’s onyx yeah very nice-looking both times handsome fellow
handsome boy yeah man he did well and he invented movin it’s the very first
artificial color ever invented changed the world of fashion but what he was
trying to do was actually to make winning I want to heal people I’m gonna
heal people I’m gonna make people look but the preak winning malaria treatments
they were just as bizarre as they were desperate so I love this one in medieval
Europe it was thought that it would work if you were thrown headfirst into a bush
and if you got out quickly enough to leave the fever behind that would sort
you out God did someone landed in my bush I’m not leaving your fevers there eat an onion with our men written on it
is it good for you Aurora no my mother used to have onion sandwiches raw onion
sandwiches white bread lots of butter raw onions it’s delicious tell her to
put some cheese in lovely it used to be called Roman fever malaria and it’s
thought to be one of the reasons for the end of the Roman Empire it’s one of the
oldest illnesses in the world we have discovered mosquitoes with the malaria
parasite in it fossilized in amber it are 30 million years old and still to
this day about a million people a year die from it it’s a truly terrible
disease it comes from medieval Italian malaria so it means bad air not a good
thing I do like this in 2014 a Californian firm made a perfume that
made cows smell like humans so that mosquitoes would bite them instead of us malaria apparently the other alternative
cure is viagra on me yes apparently a fairly effective way of treating malaria
as it can improve the spleens ability to filter the parasite excellent my malaria
is gone I’ve got somewhere to put this towel oh I’m so sorry
sorry bro it’s ok I’m too old to understand it
I don’t know what that’s your GMT now time for some shots so you’ve all got a
shot glass of something beside you so Allen having a look Jules what do you
think it might be Jimmy the drink ever taste you taste a
taste I mean is it if I drank it all would I
die no I’m not allowed to kill you this year has been particularly tricky to
negotiate was it taste on no idea what it is
tastes I’m getting I’m getting gravel from the a one sided or drove it’s as
close as we can get to what the gladiators used to drink so they coughed
a drink which was made from ash vinegar and water in order to help are you
enjoying it more or less now basically what you’re drinking there is a burnt
down chip shop yes I’m getting saveloy
what we know is that gladiators were mostly vegetarian they had a diet of
lots of lentils and lots of beans we know this from Chu eyes great friend
Pliny the Elder I’d say things he wrote we have to take them a little bit of a
pinch of salt because he also said drinking Bulls blood cures snake bites
and turnips provoked lust kind of early energy drinks and the nearest we can
find to the kind of ash thing is activated charcoal shots and people do
drink them out and adherence say that’s fantastic for hangovers increasing your
energy I have to warn you that it can cause constipation and make your poo
black okay so a little bit for you let’s come on to fill so charioteers this i’m
straightaway malt vinegar right out of the trap okay
it’s a malt vinegar it tastes like watered-down monk vinegar but i’m
getting them a bit of a salty back end on it yeah so well and we’ve been able to do this properly
a sortie back end is exactly what’s missing because what they drank was
indeed vinegar which had been watered down but it also had dung in it which
would be sorted down back end right there so what is he mad this is only
this is just pasca which is vinegar and water it would have lots of good
calories in it it would have been perfectly healthy thing good field
gutter and so on even nero who fancied himself as a charioteer he swore by a
good old draught of pig dung and vinegar to help you with your recovery through a
period where people were using ash to cook things i don’t know when they did
it intentionally but certainly there have been a lot of ash around and people
have often use – to preserve cheeses and mmm berry cheese in ash i think babies
we’re giving it for something that’s when they used to be allowed to smoke
fags had a cup of tea in their bottles you know brandy on the lips my nan used
to put a brandy in the baby’s milk that’s a shot you’re a baby you’ve had a
brandy sorry I think me look at me she just wanted you to shut up and go to
sleep quite right right Joe go with you looks like liquid hopelessness to me did you like it it tastes like ginger
beer it is just ginger my darling it’s a stimulant ginger wherever it’s been
available has been used as it not as a as a medicine here’s the thing if you
drank that how would you feel about drinking from a toilet bowl love it well
weirdest things about drinking ginger is apparently it suppresses feelings of
disgust so they did a study in 2019 in the Journal of the American
Psychological Association maybe I’ll have sex in the earth you see your wife having a ginger ale
before bed why’s that I’ll just get me back disgusting things like snot in a napkin
or something you would feel on some toes if you if you have the ginger first
about you don’t feel as disgusted somehow the ginger suppresses the
disgust and quite like the concept of snot on a napkin a market restaurant what can you smell so get a sniff to see
that professional oh yes I have no idea what this is but I have drunk it before it’s a modern energy drink
did you don’t like the taste of it what it’s the crack caffeine and something
called taurine which is supposed to be even more stimulating than caffeine
they’re pretty high as a kite daily high as a kite so these are all energy drinks
from a long time ago this is the most modern one that we’ve come to here the
money made by it is more than the fragrance and cannabis market combined
it is worth an absolute fortune and since it’s absolutely stuffed full of
sugar yeah all it’s doing is making you fat your point being what might you want to have done with
your own ashes if you don’t want to turn it into a drink what could you do with
your own ashes any thoughts oh say you believe it no well you say when I owe ya
it’s my work you’d be turned into a jewel yeah all manner of soap my
favourite thing is that you can turn the ashes of a loved one into a drinking cup
so I love this because you could theoretically drink an ash drink for
energy out of the ashes of somebody you love to his dead
it’s quite weird isn’t it apparently you can also make them into a tattoo what
yes what let’s make it into ink and turn it into a tattoo who can be made into a
pencil lid cuddly toy there’s no end I could be a pencil late well I’m 56 oh
the irony I think you could be a whole set of pencils nothing right drinks away
please time to go from coughing – scoffing but
we are staying with a letter Q can you name a cereal crop that begins with a Q Quaker Oats Quaker Oats is as close as
we were able to find ourselves you are exactly right it’s not quinoa because I think quinoa
isn’t a grass it is not a grain it’s a seed it’s a seed so strictly speaking it
cannot be classified as a cereal and in fact it’s good news for the Ashkenazi
Jews for example they’re not allowed to eat grains and a bus over West they can
eat quinoa bad luck to them it takes shit one of those foods that you need to
add actual food to it to make it’s annoying on your plate it’s annoying in
your mouth have you cooked with it do you like it yeah I like it but I agree
with you it needs health here’s the thing about quinoa it’s a superfood it
contains a lot more protein than most plants plenty of iron high in vitamin E
it also has all 10 amino acids needed to support a human life
I mean I say this in fairness Haribo contains nine so I really want to
believe that that is true Haribo has nine the building block right but if you had a quinoa only died you
have an Amir I think you’d probably obscure V wouldn’t be able to clot blood
it’s not a good idea but it does contain another Q quercetin and that is very
good antiviral anti-cancer anti-inflammatory antidepressant I mean
it has lots of good stuff in it yeah it has lots of good stuff in it yeah it’s
got antidepressants in it and you look at it and feel like killing yourself so Carol Vorderman fault is it yeah well
she wrote the first cookery book that’s have quinoa in it I remember it well I
wept that day whatever happened to semolina I agree
with you what is that that’s gone nobody uses Semele high in 72 you if you make a
pie and it’s likely to have a soggy bottom yes oh it’s a layer of semele in
it in the bottom of the pie it was set up those juices and you have a nice
crisp non-soluble and you won’t taste it you won’t taste something it’s just weed
so it’s just like paste I love that anybody know what quinoa looks like yeah
I went to Bolivia I saw Kira off fields it’s actually rather beautiful it’s got
colors which come from a type of pigment called a better Lin it’s the same
chemical gives beetroot its color it’s it’s rather lovely also contains
saponins which are soaked like chemicals and in fact andean cultures use those
soupy husks a shampoo and nasa are looking at quinoa as a possible food for
long space missions seeing as we have Prue on the panel I thought I should
test your baking skills the rest of you so we’re going to make some Danish lemon
waffles and prove I’m going to ask you to judge please so everybody bring out
your tray with your ingredients so prove that is the instructions
have you made Danish lemon waffles before I don’t think they exist it’ll be
a ridiculous okay here we go before we can start our Quaffle making Sandi I
wish to appear to be given a chair from Sandy’s house right you got one egg 1/2 cup of
buttermilk 5 teaspoons of baking soda 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla 1 cup of lemon
juice 1 cup and a quarter of sugar 7/8 of a cup of all-purpose flour and 8
tablespoons of melted butter Prue what are the instructions please all right
in a small bowl beat the egg until foamy until your foamy let’s say me what do you reckon blow me
okay now yeah all right put it in a pan and get the beans warmed up add the milk
and vanilla which one’s the buttermilk loopy and blended well yeah so in the
vanilla vanilla sandy yeah lick the bowl sandy add the baking soda one teaspoon
at a time sprinkling it and beating until the mixture is smooth and the
consistency of light cream I don’t even do this right and beating Sandy’s keep
that out of show where it belongs all of it that’s okay
that’s safely I know I had a young man that becoming useful bakers right bun that’s a time gets it in there
Oh done it’ll take forever let me come one teaspoon at a time please true it’s
there it’s there don’t don’t late okay
assisted by Van Dyck okay yeah now all right you’re fine now let’s have the right money it was a queue around the block
yeah okay so don’t ya pour the mixture into the beaker Oh be okay do you ever cook with your children like the process but they won’t eat any
of you okay add the lemon juice all at once and blend into the mixture
Blaine howdy oh no spilt some in the egg cup great that was fast food No anybody know why that happens something
to do with the acid I think because Prue doesn’t know how to cook so the lemon
juice is acid and it mixes with making batter which is a covenant and that
happens okay I think I said okay so it forms co2 and it foams up in that way
especially if you put five teaspoons in it yeah about four and a half more than
you’d normally use yeah we would rather determined that it should work obviously
we invented Danish lemon quarrels because it begins with a Q can I
recommend you a Penn & Teller look I called how to play with your food and
the recipes in there it’s called Swedish lemon angels but what a great thing to
make their kids and it wasn’t pretty fantastic getting on television it’ll never catch on now
for a question on quips Phil how many jokes would you exchange for this person
well it’s my child so I gotta be honest there’s a buyers market so this is your
daughter Emily yeah and Emily is now one of the elves here she works for us on Qi
but we learnt this wonderful thing in between the 5th and the 2nd century BC
in Athens comedians were known as parasite us literally means we still are
literally so sponges and they made a living by turning up at dinner parties
uninvited and they’ve exchanged jokes for food and they had their own joke
books and kept them up though we’re such brilliant comics look at the size of it so there was a parachutist called Satori
oh and he kept a whole chest full of Jake books at home and he offered up 600
of his quips his jokes as a dowry for his daughter so we thought well let’s
extend this and let’s have your daughter as a hostage and see how many jokes you
would exchanged so if you can make the audience laugh I will release her ok
a Salesman knocks on the door of her house and the door opens and there’s a
five-year-old child standing there with a cigar and a balloon of brandy and the
salesman looks a little boy and goes no little boy he goes boy your mum and dad
in and he goes does it look like they are okay when is the time
the ancient Greeks had stand-up comedy nights but a lot of the time only other
comedians would attend there was a group it work what’s the one on the right turn
to the one on the right that’s the beginning of improv second
let’s go look at him look at it torture anyway there used to be a thing for the
group of 60 and they were athenian wits who got together and exchanged jokes and
so one of the ways you would tell a joke in Athens you would say the sixty said
and so on but the very first joke book that Europe
ever had was published by anybody ever guess we are talking amid 1,400 ladybird
well the Vatican published it was utterly obscene they had called the boo
jolly it was literally a fib factory there was a papal secretary called
Poggio Braccio Leaney and he kept a record of all these jokes
and he published it 273 puns and jokes mostly the usual stuff farts erections a
bishop reading yeah excuse me is that Athena the frame of my
picture has fallen American newspapers having beautiful handwriting he is the
creator of the very first Roman font and we think he’s the man behind Times New
Roman that we use today today I will come up with dingbats what was the most
exciting diet in history I reckon in the feed of Paris oh they did darling 1870
there were recipes for elephant elephant there were recipes for his trunk and his
what have you call it yeah talk I believe some roosters were eaten as well most exciting exciting diet the end of
the 19th and indeed the beginning of the 20th century and there were professional
fasters they were called hunger artists and these were people who would in
public see who could fast for the longest I’d love to do that yeah yeah if
we all stopped me and now if we like didn’t have any food the thought of us
would me and Joe last longer because with that how dare you I’m much heavier than Joe I’ll slaughter
Herod of fasting competition these reserves yes of course we would last
long yeah yeah do you think like don’t know that’s necessarily true I think it
depends on your metabolism and yeah your ability to survive yes so how long do
you think you would last because if you could last for a very long time you
could make thousands and thousands of pounds yeah that was a guy Aldo Giovanni
Suchi he was paid more than a quarter of a million pounds back in 1890 he lasted
40 days on the stage in London and afterwards he had missed eating so much
he went on to found Pringles doesn’t matter about your initial body weight
you probably lost 8 to 12 weeks ok all of us would be about the same but this
fad it started in 1880 there was a doctor called Henry Turner and he’d bet
he could live on water for 40 days and he made an absolute fortune from people
just coming to stare at him but there was a woman called Molly Fletcher she
was also known as the Brooklyn enigma and she claims she had psychic abilities
due to starvation and she was challenged to do it for 40 days with
round-the-clock observation by doctors but she said the doctors are bound to be
male I’m not going to do it because you know a modesty would prevent me from
doing this the truth is on the whole it was discovered people had been secretly
eating anybody remember the last one and sort of always David Blaine David lay on
us yeah he did for four days in the box I wouldn’t say him did you go and see
him when I went it was quite late at night people throwing eggs how long would you last if you just
without water though not anywhere near as long I mean you must have a so yeah
yes I must have some hydration of some kind there’s a rule of three you can
survive three hours without shelter you can survive three days without water and
three weeks without food is a rule of three what was the first one you can
survive three hours without shelter cricket matches longer than that I mean
the one that is extraordinary is the breed Aryan diet does anybody know what
the breed Aryan diet it is it breathing air just that sleeve just that this is
think prana which was supposed to live all it’s a Sanskrit word and it
translates as life air or life force and I haven’t soom they’re the only people I
presume they’re all dead they claim to live purely of light and air I would
guess they’re the only people can bore vegans at dinner parties called can you
speak Venusian and he established that the leader of the breed Aryans did
actually much like everybody else but not as well because all he was able
to do was rely on places open very late at night when nobody saw him goes not
eating a good diet definitely don’t try to have the garage so that’s basically
pork pies and quavers in it what’s the least amount of food anything
can survive them any human anything living being two percent of your body
weight or two percent of your body weight I mean we need at least 1200
calories don’t we they’re human beings three muffins the team from the
University of Southern California has recently discovered microbes that
genuinely seem to survive on almost nothing this is an astonishing story so
the sediments of the Pacific Ocean they have been found living there and based
on how much oxygen has depleted over the ages researchers propose that they may
have been alive for 75 million years they’ve certainly been alive for an
extraordinarily long period of time they don’t do anything apart from really
really slowly metabolizing really really small amounts of food what is
extraordinary so say they’ve been alive for 75 million years that time if they
can understand time will have passed really quickly for them because an
animal’s ability to perceive time is linked to the speed of its metabolism so
imagine you’ve got a very fast metabolism it sends signals to your
brain much more quickly so a fly has very very fast metabolism so signals go
to the brain and credibly quickly so a newspaper coming at it seems to move
rather slowly and that means that the fly I can get away much whenever I can
swat them you’ve got a couple of 75 million year rob microbes at the bottom
the pacific game well easybulb she’s in Hell already bowl
he’s gone now what would newlyweds do with these that’s got to be a lab apple
of some sort it’s certainly associated with love we’re in the letter Q so it’s
a fruit beginning of the quince it is a quince from ancient Greek times
right up to the present day but associated with love and marriage and in
fact in the sixth century BC the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed that
during the wedding every bride and the bridegroom shall be shut into a chamber
and eat a quince together you don’t like them brew you but I’ll roll quinces are
disgusting I’ve had quince jelly jellies delicious is that full of sugar and it’s
cooked for a very long time and it’s lovely but very unkind to make the meat
there must have been desperate to get on with math I mean certainly in terms of a
British food until the 19th century all fruit was cooked it was regarded as very
bad for your system to eat anything that was wrong
the ancient Greeks have a story that quince trees sprung up wherever
Aphrodite the goddess of love how do we was castrated by his son Cronus and the
genitals you’re innocent genitals were thrown into the sea and the phone
created by the genitals out of that rose Aphrodite in fact if you look at the
Wikipedia page on Aphrodite her parents are listed as Uranus’s severed genitals
witches poem with quints in it are they dined on mince and slices
of quince it up with a runcible spoon by Snoop Dogg anybody know was a runcible spoon in a
spoon formerly owned by the Archbishop of Canterbury it’s not anything he made
it a bit just he just fitted in the poem 16th century quince was considered to be
an aphrodisiac it really has had this tremendous
reputation and now really not popular at all is it in fact quite difficult to get
hold up I think if you have a tree produces so many of them you don’t know
what to do with it but they are wonderful because they make everything
set if you want apple pie to have that sort of nice jelly bottom and if you
want to make any jam set its sham some quince in that and mendler fruit which
was the other fruit is very popular to me in medieval times you know what the
name for red love it’s a Victorian name dogs are you look at the end of a
meddler guess what it looks like just like a dog there’s one street in London
called medlar Street where there are still some middle are trees but I don’t
think anybody picks the fruit because people don’t know what to do with it
I would have preferred dogs are Street more attention to quinces now for a
question that may make you feel a little queasy where can you find the world’s
most disgusting food well I think so interesting about that is that it
depends where you are you’re right it is entirely to do with cultural context but
there is actually a disgusting food museum it is in Sweden it is in murmur
so what they have said the rules for the food that is allowed to be in the
discussing food museum they have to be considered disgusting by some people
somewhere in the world they have to be genuinely eaten by some people somewhere
in the world as a choice okay so not through necessity and then mustn’t be a
foodstuff that has been created just for tourists so for example they have bull
testicles within the United States are eaten as Prairie oysters or Rocky
Mountain Oysters there it is the testicles issue never like me had never
seen them before Mongolian marry which is a sheep’s eye
in tomato juice which is regarded as a hangover cure in Mongolia that is a
Bulls penis there and penis very popular in
takes three penises to make Chinese three penis wine neither I no way
partner glass a triple thick but balls penis crops up all over the world in
Bolivia delegates as a soup they make Bulls penis soup oh maybe I did most
commonly eaten by pet dogs as a chewy treat they don’t have any food in the
disgusting food museum that involves any animal cruelty so they talk about pate
but they don’t show you all the penises have been donated yes there’s a huge
number of people have visited the museum and they report a drastic reduction in
meat consumption after they filled the museum and vomiting has been a slight
issue rather cleverly though all tickets to the museum are printed on a sick bag disgust is a it’s a universal
evolutionary function we need it in order to avoid disease and unsafe food
and so on but what we find disgusting is not noticing I think we’re all going to
end up eating lots of insects yes because they’re very nutritious for the
night I don’t know why we don’t eat it in this country
no right why no I’ve been on this show I’ve had this before it kills you much
rebek I remember when the big man with a when he was on there was an episode when something
Annie went oh it’ll kill it ma if you only eat rabbit it’s my opinion I was
suggesting the odd meal right now it’s time to the round that’s guaranteed to
make Alan stomach turn general ignorance fingers on buzzers please what is the
most expensive liquid on earth it’s probably a wine Elvises bathwater
there’s someone doing that vials of be no war yeah because when he died
everything went all I know save the ball exactly the toilet yeah that’s much
cheaper that we think the answer is probably
racehorse semen there is an Internet factoid that says scorpion venom is the
most expensive liquid on earth in just 30 million pounds per gallon but here’s
the thing about scientists they’ve worked out a new way of breeding and
milking scorpions it’s caught the price right now you can now get a gallon of
scorpion venom for a mere 70,000 pounds now come on Daisy
put your stinger in the milk there’s a lot there’s a lot you can get a gallon
of LSD 123 Chanel number five 20,000 pounds per gallon printer ink 2,000
pounds per gallon we’re heading down the prices yeah that is the most expensive
liquid that we can find mmm seems to be race horse semen sir for a mare to be
serviced by a famous thoroughbred called Galileo would cost a Anna about five
hundred and forty thousand pounds the average volume of the stallions
ejaculation there’s 65 mil so Galileo would have to ejaculate 70 times in
order to produce one gallon of semen and so his semen would be worth almost 50
million pounds per gallon is the most expensive thing I know as a man semen
were yours a quid yeah Gavin Paola horse semen is much more expensive than
printer ink but even if it was cheaper would probably cause some kind of paper
jam what is traditional marmalade made from princess oranges right it is absurd
you should pay more yeah so etymologically speaking marmalade should
be made from quince anybody know where we get the word marmalade from well the
myth is that Mary Queen of Scots supposedly has it when she was sick and
it was the French she is sick and so they made the marmalade it’s absolute
nonsense it comes from an old word for quince it’s Portuguese madam ello and
it’s just just means quince that’s all I told you we should pay more attention to
princes I said this earlier nobody was listening well I refuse Jay why might
you not want to be a marmalade madam is that that fruit you ran a brothel and
you yes get paid in jam for your hookers the brothel you are a prostitute
it was a 17th 18th make them toast afterwards oh yeah yeah so it was still
believed that it was an aphrodisiac the young ladies of the night and Wynonna’s
marmalade I said live next to a madam of a brothel
she used to tell me which newsreaders used to come in oh yeah just before he
finished coat and finally no this just in and now showers my god
I’m joining in which brings us at the belly of the
beast the scores let’s have a quick oh this is very good in first place
absolutely mama lysing the competition with six points it’s bill it’s Alan the place making a fantastic debut with
-1 pirouette still in last place with – 13 thanks approval Joe and Alan and it’s
time ladies and gentlemen please with this quaffing quotation from terry
pratchett there are better things in the world than alcohol but alcohol sort of
compensates for not getting them Cheers Romesh Ranganathan and his focus group

Thank you from Malaysia. Oh, that was the wrong mosquito! It should be an anopheles mosquito (malaria) not the aedes aegypti (dengue). I use lemon and bicarbonate of soda for my drains and sinks.

Energy Drinks not only make you fat but also destroy the liver over time β€” and the high caffeine content is not good for your heart (especially for young people). Taurine is harmless.

Isn't the rule of three: 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food? 3 hours without shelter seems rather pessimistic

Does Jo Brand eat rice with no additional flavouring? Or any grain for that matter? I know quinoa is a seed but it is used like a grain, why be so hard on it?

What are they on about Quinoa being so horrible. You know what else doesn't taste very good on its own? Every single thing we use for starch in the western world. Seriously, if someone gave me a plate of plain wheat, I would cry, too.

Why did everyone look so shocked when they said people give their dogs bull penises for treats ? "Bully sticks" are exactly that, dried bull penis. They stink to high heaven, probably why dogs love them so much. If you look at the ingredients for a lot of dog treats they are basically all the parts that are unpopular with humans. Pigs ears are super popular. I even saw a bag of dried trachea (from some type of farm animal) for dogs the other day. Might seem gross to us but at least those parts aren't being wasted.

I got to lick the spoon as a kid from the cake mix and ended up in hospital from salmonella from the raw eggs. I know now the risk is low for adults. but when you're a kid? JUST DON'T FUCKING DO IT. I was so sick in hospital for that long I had to repeat a year of school.

Good thing about plants is that they contain all essential amino acids without the cholesterol, trans fats, hormones etc that are in animal products. They might not have them all in large amounts but so what?! We don't need to max our levels of them all every single time because our bodies keep stores of them to mix and match when necessary. When was the last time anyone died from protein deficiency? Don't understand carnist's constant futile attempts to denigrate plants-only diets. If they want to eat unhealthily, they can be junk food vegans and eat Oreos, crisps, burgers, fries etc while leaving the animals alone and help save the planet! πŸ˜‰

Also, carnists are the most boring people at dinner parties. As soon as they find out that you're vegan, they have to say shite like, "Mmm bacon" and "you've got a mobile phone/car/mice die when grains are harvested/etc so you're not vegan" and other such crap. Breatharianism is a joke until there's scientific evidence of its validity, as far as I'm concerned. Mind you, they'd probably be more interesting to talk with than someone trying to force meat or dairy onto me, as per usual. πŸ˜€
