At the back of the hill

Warning: If you stay here long enough you will gain weight! Grazing here strongly suggests that you are either omnivorous, or a glutton. And you might like cheese-doodles.
BTW: I'm presently searching for another person who likes cheese-doodles.
Please form a caseophilic line to the right. Thank you.

The one-legged monkey had some candies for me when I came home this evening. The she-sheep told me. The one-legged monkey likes to claim that he is a baddy, totally ruthless, like the fuchsia cat with the big grin.
He said it was the she-sheep being considerate.
He's actually a softie.

Quite the zoo I've got here.

Which makes the work environment seem boring by comparison. Although today I did hear one of the old boys in the lounge asserting "I had sex with a woman once ... ". Not completely surprising for a man who has passed the age of retirement, I warrant, and there was probably something which followed that statement that gave the admission a context.
I did not hear the rest of his tale.

There are often things at work of which I do not hear the end. That is a blessing. It's in Marin, cigars are involved, and there are individuals who voted for the orange-faced blunt object over there.

"I had sex... with a woman... once."

I have learned not to ask questions or make eye-contact. Precisely like one does with crazies on the bus, or psychopaths lurking under park benches.
No, I do not wish a swig of your Thunderbird.
Just smoke your cigar, fat man.
Let me ignore you.

Still, I would have gladly heard more. The aged git discoursing on his one sexual experience could have had interesting insights. Some of those bulky gentlemen of the cigar-smoking persuasion may be substituting nicotine for both oxytocin and prolactin, although I would be more inclined to believe that they are eternally twixt anhedonia and a refractive episode.
Cigars almost always mean a low sex drive.
It's a substitute, you see.

Evenso, in this life, if you are a man, there is a chance that at some point you WILL have sex, with a woman, or experience something "confusing".

The old fossil HAD sex with an actual woman once.
Something I couldn't have imagined.
How surprising.



I'm sure it would been precisely like a naturalist, when a large flightless parrot climbed on his shoulder and started humping him.

    Yeah, nicotine sure makes people wild. Do you have any good recommendations for any nicotine-free pipe tobaccos?

    No. Tobacco has nicotine.

    So you also ingest nicotine? Are you also using it as a substitute for sex chemicals, just like your cigar buddies?

    Almost everybody ingests nicotine.

    From this page:

    Vegetable Nicotine in ng/g g per 1µg nicotine
    Cauliflower 16.8 59.5
    Eggplant (Aubergine) 100.0 10
    Potatoes 7.1 140
    Green tomatoes 42.8 23.4
    Ripe tomatoes 4.3 233.0
    Pureed tomatoes 52.0 19.2

    1µg of nicotine is the equivalent of sitting in a vaguely smoke filled room for three hours. Smoking a cigarette results in about 1mg absorbed nicotine. In other words, 100g of eggplant contains 0.01mg of nicotine, and 10kg of eggplant is equivalent to one cigarette. However, absorbtion rates from ingestion are low and nicotine is quickly metabolised, so the effect isn't nearly the same.

    [End cite.]

    I would venture that Italians are very sexy, and highly sexualized. Possibly their nicotine ingestion augments rather than substitutes. Ditto with Mexicans. Who are hot and zesty.

    And don't call them my buddies. I barely tolerate most of them, the few that I like represent the same percentage as the general population. Most of whom I also barely tolerate.

    Oh and by the way: there is almost nothing quite so aesthetically appealing as a well-made briar pipe. It is a thing of profound pleasure to the eyes, nose, and hand. A touchie-feelie object that, even when not in use and unlit, can satisfy for hours.

    When I restore pipes I often don't smoke; hands are tools of sentience, and the tactile thought process is a hypnotic almost trance-like state which puts the world at a distance and helps resolve all irritations.

    Here's some fascinating stuff:

    "A new study shows that eating foods that contain naturally-occurring nicotine may be able reduce the risk of Parkinson's Disease."

    "Previous studies have shown that smoking and other tobacco use may lower the risk of developing Parkinson's disease. While it was thought that nicotine may be providing that effect, researchers weren't sure if different factors in the brain were causing the risk reductions.

    While most people know that nicotine can be found in tobacco, low levels of the compound can be found in peppers, tomatoes and other members of the Solanaceae flowering plant family.

    "Eating more vegetables in general did not lower Parkinson's risk, but eating vegetables in the Solanaceae family did."

    "People who ate the most peppers -- about two to four peppers weekly -- had the strongest risk-lowering association. They lowered their Parkinson's risk by 30 percent."
