A Wild & Crazy Bean

You're all invited for some freshly brewed coffee made from premium beans grown in central Uranus. I've been enjoying the conversations around here so much, I thought this would add yet another dimension to the enlightenment. My own Venus luuuhhves my Uranus as they cavort and carouse in the land of Gemini. I can't separate them. Pals 'til eternity. Sweet talkin' geniuses.
The java will be jivin' so come on by!

I'm a one cup at a time person but if any of you are bean heads, help yourself to as much as you want. Before it becomes illegal!

Have an extra cup! The same experts who warned that caffeine would give you a heart attack now say that, when combined with exercise, it can prevent skin cancer.

But that's not all! When I googled to try to find a source, I used keywords "coffee prevents." Here's the list of things that turned up! Coffee prevents:
- diabetes
- liver cancer
- cirrhosis of the liver (but only if you're already an alcoholic)
- gout
- eye spasms
- gallstones
- Parkinson's Disease
- tooth decay
- boredom & lethargy

OK, I made up the last one.

LOL pat! What an interesting list. And guess what?? Tobacco is also known to deter Parkinson's disease.
It's a good thing I've ingested what I wanted to all along!

I wonder if the paranoia, fear and hysteria over various supposedly bad for us foods causes some kind of synergistic effect in the body? Consume something, read about the latest "news" about it, and it turns to something else in your system.

You know it! This is an area of great interest for me. The Parkinson's connection is to the dopamine uptake in the body which governs pleasure.

This is endlessly fascinating to me. And the fear of food. can you imagine? Fearing what you survive on? Now that's sick.

It's all molecules and once it's all picked apart, anything can happen. Fear is molecules too as it releases hormones.

We have too much information. And the more we go, the more the previously held belief is refuted. I find myself paying less attention to the alarm bells.

They should do an experiment if they must figure it out. Track people who ingest the same things, some who are frightened and others who receive no prejudicial information. That would definitely prove your idea.

The stupidity joe. Stunning. One of the main ones is how they insist on confusing themselves more and more. Is that not dumb? And then the following instinct. You'd think we were all dumb little ducklings. And not as cute.

There are some smarts in there that resist this effort, thank god.

So, then, fearlessness is the ultimate placebo effect!

er... wait. Should that be fear is the placebo? Gotta think this one through.

Confidence is medicine. It's all hormones. You know I've mentioned fear and cortisol, a killer poison. But why on earth are we making ourselves sick?

This is the huge problem with allopathic medicine as it's practiced now. All the fear surrounding it. If they got that figured out with all their knowledge the medical costs would plummet.

I found an amazing healer. A dentist. The first procedure I had done by him was enlightening. People always say how afraid they are of the needles. When he anesthetized my jaw, he hid the syringe in his hand as he brought it into my mouth. I've never seen anything like it. Don't know if he learned it or thought it up himself. He's old. The whole procedure following was painless and not scary. I felt joy and relief after. And I approach everything he does with confidence. He allays my fears.

Colorado today became the 10th state to allow gay couples to adopt and the 20th to extend civil rights protection to gays and lesbians.

We've been imvolved in pushing equal rights legislation for 11 years in a row. Today is a new day as we take two great strides toward equality

This is conservative Colorado? It pays to get Democrats in no matter how bad they are. The legislature here is all Democratic since the last election.

NN in Aquarius should further the cause of equality.

I had terrible headaches after a head injury a few years back, and the best morning cure to aches was--you guessed it--coffee. Discovered this purely by accident, as I was a caffeine tee-totaller for a while.

Coffee is an accepted remedy for headaches. It works for some, not others. There are tons of compounds in everything and each individual picks and chooses what to respond to. That's why sickness is selective, as are cures. Probably anything could cure anything, really.

It's all crazy. I think coffee is more potent than cocaine, yet the weaker one lands you in jail. They're so confused.

And alcohol is legal whereas cannabis is not. Who makes the money makes the rules, I guess.
