Guys,

I was home alone today so I figured I would take care of things that are more difficult to do when the better half is here. Things like doing the taxes, keeping the neighborhood squirrels at bay, sorting papers, reviewing meds that might be useful at the Cajun GFMPH swap meet, and running a combustion test in my wood burning stove since it sometimes stinks up the house.

I hadn't tried Vitamin V for a while since it never did anything for me so I figured I'd give it a try with half of a 100 mg. I then went about my business doing taxes, loading the wood burner with the test biofuel and lit it off. While it was coming up to temperature, I knocked off a 2 oz can of Cento Anchovies on a bagel, with side order of Cabot PepperJack cheese and a mug of green tea. Yum. When I went back to the stove I noticed the fuel was outgassing a blue tinge not unlike a natural gas furnace. That is very unusual. I checked temperatures and everything was normal. The fuel was correct, the air intake and reburner settings were correct. I grabbed my data sheet and started to make a note of the anomaly when I noticed the data sheet was slightly blue - as was everything else in the room.

The blue was not a paraffin contaminant outgassing in the fuel. It was the side effect of 50 mg of Vit V - the only effect I saw. Guess what I'm bringing to the meet.

David,
Vitamin V is what we owners of limp noodles call Viagra or the generic equivalent.
At least that was one thing you didn't have to worry about. :-)
Vit C is Cialis and Vit L is Levitra.

Wait a second -- when you take vitamin V, you HOPE that you are going to get ****ed. When you do your taxes you KNOW that you are going to get ****ed.

Recalling your past posts, I suspect that biofuel might be pads air dried on your trees. Given your above-admitted fondness for chemical experimentation, we need to inquire as to which ingested molecules could have been processed into the throughput in the pads. Recommendation: if you are approached by a ten foot tall talking frog who wants to audit your books, remember that in your present state, acid may clear your mind.

Jeff, Jeff, Jeff, surely you must do more than just put gasoline in the tank, in so many words? You must also apply the starter to turn the engine (stimulation-either self or shared) You can't take the pill and wait and watch, it takes action to get things working. Also, that load of food you took , maybe too soon after the pill, didn't do you any good either. Time for another trial. Find a time when you have an empty stomach, a full heart, and a willing sweetheart, pop the pill and see if you and the sweetheart can stir up any response. This ain't 'spanish fly' or another aprodisiac you're dealing with. Report back results at the earliest...

Hey Geezer,
I was actually 'on the clock' today and getting paid to do testing on a genetically modified energy crop. It's part of my job. That's why my pee pad energy content numbers are so accurate. When I quote an energy figure it is always true. thanks for pointing out the positive of being ****ed!

James,
Before my sling we experimented with crushed Vitamin V, 100 mg on an empty stomach - with a partner -and all I got was a stuffy nose and blue lights. At the time I was very self conscious of leaking and that detracted from the event
You are correct about the need to try again. I'll see if I can slip in a round before the swap meet.
I hate to see it go to waste.

Sorry, Jeff, I don't always get the obvious, you should know that by now. I get it now.

David, I have found that typing the word or term in Google will show me what it's meaning is, in almost every case of these new 'kid' slang and young adult shorthand. Works for me, when I wonder "what the crap does that nonsense mean?".... devil

Swim,
As a courtesy to my wife I only do the stinky/noisy/icky stuff when she's not home I had picked herring today. "Make your day a little bit 'brighta'; Eat a little pickled herring by Vita."
(2 squirrels and a chipmunk, today. Hey, someone's got to do it.)

The blue is an interesting effect. I wonder if it cuts our vision in the longer wavelengths or does it extend our vision slightly into the ultraviolet. I see the making of another NIH study grant here.

non-leaking jeff -
found this on a viagra info site --
"4. Impaired Vision
It’s no joke – the blue pill can make you see blue. Viagra can decrease the flow of blood to your optic nerve because your eyes contain an enzyme similar to PDE5, which Viagra inhibits. This is why some users develop temporary vision problems, including blurred vision, increased brightness, a blue haze, or a green halo effect."


and another report...
"While not fatal, seeing blue is easily the weirdest side effect on the list. Here's how it happens: Sildenafil in Viagra blocks an enzyme called PDE5 (phosphodiesterase) which is found in your eyes. When it blocks the enzyme, it depolarizes the rod cells in your eyes..."


hopefully that answers some of your questions Jeff....

.. too bad I was not aware of the side effects regarding hearing loss and Viagra - as well as the side effects of Cipro and hearing loss ... got a double whammy that way....

hugs,
BRONSON

Bronson,

Rats! So it is a degradation of capability - not an enhancement. Darn it!
That means I'll have to resort to using UV-A florescence to track rodent urine when hunting at night. I was hoping to be a little more 'bionic'.

Blinking Blue Light- that really shows our age. lol. I get the blue haze after vit v and looking at my computer screen. At first I was wondering if I was having a flashback from the 60's. No such luck.
