  1. Not exactly... Epidermal growth factor, which may have been originally derived from a baby foreskin but will then have been cloned in a lab. Pretty grim anyway but egf has been proven to speed up wound healing as well as improving skin. Then again ambergris (gunk from in blue whales digestive systems), musk (anal gland secretions from musk deer and musk rat), ground up beetles to colour lipstick, etc have all been around for years!
  2. Perfect bar's of chocolate, not too dark, not too light, smooth and silky.
  3. Thanksgiving dinner special trouser Button extender?
  4. Has the dog filter been legalised over there yet?
  5. Odd, most on here seem to agree that 30-90 days down is required or you risk making your cigars duds, but I guess that's acclimatisation rather than aging... But if you smoked one or two of the box rott, then buried them for a few years those 'duds' might turn to gold? Or a dud might be a dud because it's too strong, wasn't the ra Celestiales Finos panned for being too strong on release? Look at it now, if you're lucky enough to have some, is that a dud to gold? Or more common example, plpc, some wouldn't touch the mongrel of a fresh plpc, dud(?), but would relish the caramel at 5+ years. Burn, age has been shown to improve that... So construction is the only area age can't change? Though storage / humidity / dry boxing can remedy to some extent. So I guess aging can't fix an overly filled or under filled cigar, aging can't change construction. On the flipside aging may do nothing or may make all of the above, barring construction, worse. Age at your peril/safety.
  6. AFAIK it's curcumin linked with a phospholipid, as curcumin is more bio available when taken with fat due to it being fat soluble. This seems to be a catch all for fat soluble components. Black pepper has an extract, bioperine (trademark name of pipeline), from memory this helps absorption a lot of useful substances by basically stopping the liver from marking them to be excreted (note this can be a bad thing with some things that Should be pissed out!) As always tho, do what works for you!
  7. As seen above information or knowledge on supplements is, well, chaotic. Just a note on turmeric though, the active component is Curcumin, which is roughly 3% of turmeric. as mentioned it is also not very bio available, bioperin (black pepper extract) helps as does taking it with fat, or as a phytosome where the curcumin is combined with a lipid. As an example a phytosomal curcumin can increase absorption by 29x over standard curcumin, which adds up to nearly 1000 more bio available curcumin than just taking turmeric (29 x (100/3)).
  8. Quick check on a different online retailer (just cos it's listed more easily to see) showed - belvederes coronitas on cedros julieta mille fleurs puritos regalias de londres no2/3 tubed sport largos All 25 count, there are also a lot of 10 count options under $140

    And ride in packs 3 or 4 abreast because it's 'safer' - of course it's much safer to force drivers to overtake in the other lane (unless they want to finish their journey at 15mph) rather than just passing in the same lane.

    Swearing in public (esp near my kids) Spitting Someone above also mentioned nose gunning, disgusting Government / health bodies use of statistics to 'categorically prove' something is dangerous e.g. Alcohol - any level of drinking can cause various illnesses including (and this is the people scarer that guarantees they're right) Cancer! And yet drinkers live longer.... E.g. Sunlight - increased exposure to sunlight is a cause of (haha, we win again!) skin cancer! so smother yourself in factor 50 and stay indoors. And yet exposure to sunlight, including chronic exposure (high amounts daily) reduces risk of 'all-cause mortality '...
  12. For ages I thought gin tasted like Christmas tree, and no I've never licked a Christmas tree...
  13. Well, maybe just a whiff of desperation.. How quickly a whiff becomes a stench.
