A list of puns related to "Crucifer"
It starts with an ulcer in the mouth. No pain.
Just this thing you feel with your tongue.
If you have ever had trench mouth you know what I mean. It gets bad.
Under normal conditions it can spread. Into the brain, lungs, heart.
Most people are in bad shape when it does that.
Most people die.
They die horribly and not quite fast enough.
The poison wants to spread. So it is a lingering death.
To a degree. But this is not the problem.
The problem is the ones who do not die.
So we have left the city. Run away. To escape.
and from our tunnels, caves, fortresses we watch.
They did not attack, they are not crazed flesh eating monsters.
But the are not human, not like us.
and they are not waiting, they are busy.
After the tribal warfare broke out due to them not chasing.
Some hid further into the regenerating greenery.
The new humans clustered together into nests.
While real humans fought amongst themselves for the remains
of civilisation. Science regressed.
The infection was over. The new began to accept the old into
the lower levels of their hives. Some were accepted. But they
were never infected with the disease again. It has passed.
Little has been learnt of them. The science once able to look
into the mechanisms has retreated into memories and text books.
The east coast nuclear facilities all leaked. Radiation.
Whole sectors of land are poisoned waste. Dead.
Well mostly. The greenery is prolific. Cancer is a wild fire.
They have technology. It is sterile. They do kill at times.
Like it's some kind of ritual, or sport. Their creations...
The tribes have begun to worship them. Demons. Gods. Monsters.
They want their children. To absorb.
If one takes a bunch of freeze-dried veggies - spinach, kale, or broccoli, for example - and rehydrates them, adds powdered mustard (just in case), allows them to sit much like the fresh vegetable - Will they get similar benefits to fresh?
I've done a fair bit of research on this subject but still haven't come to a definitive answer. Theoretically glucoraphanin, the precursor to sulforaphane, and myrosinase, the enzyme that converts glucoraphanin, should survive the process if the vegetable is not allowed to thaw, even if it is chopped beforehand since the vegetable is not finely ground or diced. But nobody as far as I have seen has actually tried to measure that activity in a commercial product, especially after storage.
I figure since I'm not really going to the grocery store these days it'd be an acceptable way to get my greens were this the case or else pay someone to go shopping for me.
Bonus question: Have there been studies that show myrosinase activity from mustard powder that's been sitting around for a while? Will it last for a significant time in whole seeds and be brought out from fresh-grinding those seeds?
My T. crucifer was housed in a viv that I got from a convention 6 years ago. Tonight, the side decided to spit, meaning there was a gaping hole in it. I've managed to patch it up pretty well, but I doubt it will hold for long. I need to get another tank ASAP. Can someone recommend me a good tank? I probably can get an exo-terra tarantula viv on Saturday, will that be ok?
I find foods like broccoli and kale irritate my gut, making me painfully bloated. However they are highly nutritious. What are equally rich alternatives? Thanks
You judged the shit fit Legion earlier in the week now you can judge the bad planning and lack of flying on both sides of the engagement!
