  1. Judging from the past history of your personal digestive system, if you ate said contents as part of a burrito, it is probably non-lethal (at least so far).

  2. Any SFF writers’ workshop worth its salt is, right now, saving up that sentence as the basis for a Day One short-story-writing challenge.

  3. This sounds like Wellness advice. Are you moving in on Gwyneth’s turf now, Scalzi? Careful, one of those jade eggs to the head can put you in the hospital.

  4. We had a cat that discovered a bottle of mineral oil and for some reason decided to consume a large quantity of it. The cat was fine apparently (whew) but oozed oil through her fur for the next week. And the downstream effects were… unpleasant.

  5. I use emulsified palm oil often. as it sets up like shortening. It isn’t Hydrogenated and has reappraised my use of shorting for a baking mix. My question is in how to get it out of the jar?

    I know that 125 degrees will melt it, if your temperature is that high, your should visit your doctor

  6. Some jars of mayo/salad dressing are quite small. I’m sure a cup or two of emulsified oils can be a nutritious part of your complete breakfast.

  7. I believe that’s “Oh, pish”. Unless, of course, it’s Tenuta Di Capezzana Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which would indeed be posh.

  10. I thought an emulsion was a mix of chemicals that were not miscible, such as oil and water.

    So I’m confused by emulsified oil (as in mayonnaise is an emulsion, period), but not by the thought that you ate the jar it came in.
