Since everyone is so easily side-tracked, this is a thread where it is impossible to get off topic, because this thread has no topic. Just say whatever, and let the conversation resolve of it's own momentum!

This morning (well, 1pm) I was groggy and my brain wasn't working so I made myself a couple of cups of really strong coffee. I overcompensated. A half hour later I was so wired that my hands were twitching as I typed and I couldn't do anything because I kept getting sidetracked by every little thing.
d'oh!

I did that a few weeks ago. I was talking so fast my husband could not understand me. I get very creative when I am that wired. I did an outline for my Gandalf window. Put some music on and just go with it. No more coffee for me- for a while at least.

Not really. But it is an interesting way to look at them. BTW, do you think the dinosaurs thought of the trees as broccoli?

No, but sometimes when I walk in the yard, I pretend I am a giant and the blades of grass are trees. That's kind of close.....

It is one of the only ways I can get my students to eat their broccoli at lunch!

Very interesting thought MM. If they thought of trees as broccoli, what, then did they think of actual broccoli? That it is a spice like parsley? And if they thought it was like parsley, what did they think of actual parsley....????

Whidden! I've thought of that too! It always reminds me of "Honey I Shrunk the kids!"

Did broccoli even exist back then? And if the dinosaurs thought of the trees as broccoli, did dinosaur kids refuse to eat them?

BTW, why don't you tell your students that broccoli was the vegetable that made dinosaurs big and strong?

Is that why some dinosaurs were carnivores? Because they didn't like broccoli (trees) and they would starve if they didn't eat something? Or maybe the true reason why dinosaurs became extinct was because they didn't eat their broccoli!?!!?!!

BTW, why don't you tell your students that broccoli was the vegetable that made dinosaurs big and strong?

Good idea! I'll try...but it is impossible to get almost anyone to eat their broccoli that this district serves! It is RUBBERY and you cannot even cut it with the plastic spork that is given. The only way to eat it is to stab it and eat it in bites off of the spork...hence the eating trees...

There are fields, endless fields where Broccoli is grown. For the longest time, I wouldn't believe it.
But then I saw the fields with my own eyes, spreading in every direction for miles.

I watched them harvest the broccoli so that it could be fed to the living, and standing there, facing the efficiency, the pure, horrifying precision, I came to realize the obviousness of the truth......

Broccoli sucks.

"Per capita consumption of broccoli in this country reached 6 pounds last
year, compared to only l.5 pounds in 1970. U.S. growers met this increased
demand by producing 1.3 million pounds last year--four times the 325,000
pounds grown in 1970. Broccoli is high in vitamins and dietary fiber.
Another plus: Broccoli is rich in sulforaphane, a compound associated with
reduced risk of breast cancer."

Breast Cancer. Another possible reason why the dinosaurs became extinct? Could we use this as a supporting evidence?

I actually like cauliflower more than broccoli, but broccoli is more nutritious.

BTW, you should try an indian dish made from cauliflower and potatoes. It is delicious!!!

And as for french fries, I would like to eat them, if only they could remove all the unrequired fat.
