Great new place. And the wings "might" be the best in the city. Siracha honey is my favorite.

Re: “Music Video Monday: Infinity Stairs

Keeping authority in check is the main job of the press and the reason why freedom of the press is enshrined in the constitution.

Unless of course you're against the Constitution, in which case nobody cares about the opinions of a traitor who complains about the government but doesn't have the spine to leave.

FAKE NEWS! Nothing to see here, sheeple, move along. First the WTF cover and now this! The Memphis Flyer needs to learn to show a little respect for authority.

Re: “#adaywithoutimmigrants in Memphis; Not Quantifiable, But Noticeable

Does anybody on either side of this debate realize that a little over 25% of all US physicians are foreign born? They aren't undocumented, aren't a security risk, and aren't going to fail to present for work just to make a political point. Maybe we need to do something else to show how many people in our day-to-day lives are immigrants. Like wearing a 'green-card' colored armband or something. That would do it.

Re: “New Laws Could Open Some Government Records, Close Others

Most of these sound good, other than the "trade secrets in economic development" bill HB 947/SB 1179. That one looks like it's being intentionally written so they can slip through something super nasty, probably like whitewashing Beale and erasing the racial civil rights history there and replacing it with a hokey Hee-Haw caricature of itself as a cruel mockery of the work that was done there.

The government shouldn't have trade secrets, because the government isn't supposed to engage in trade, it's supposed to regulate trade. I understand why a business would want such secrecy, but businesses are not subject to the same moral standards as governments.

I'm specifically worried about this bill being applied to redline the hell out of memphis and drive all the "undesirables" out into the suburbs leaving a gentrified urban core with devalued property ripe for investment by those who can afford it, and leaving out in the cold those who cannot.

Re: “Hair of the Dog? Yes, Please.

The science in this article is kinda iffy... but...

Ya hafta remember that ethanol is an organic solvent, like ether, or gasoline, and no organic solvents are really good for you. All of them are toxic. Some more, some less.

Because of the citric acid cycle though (yeah, I went there, don't freak out) we just happen to have enzymes that can metabolize two carbon alcohols (ethanol). Heck, our own residential gut flora produces a bunch of it every day, even if we don't drink any of the stuff at all. But it's toxic. So we have evolved a certain capacity to get rid of the stuff, and those enzymes do it.

Yay for us!

Problem is, you can overwhelm that poison handling mechanism if you drink too much, or if you drink too often. This leads to buildup of toxic metabolites (mostly acetaldehyde) and vitamin deficiencies (mostly B vitamins, vitamin C, and folate) and a general nutritional imbalance leading to abnormalities of protein metabolism and accumulation of fat in the liver.

You can battle this somewhat by sweating a lot with regular, strenuous exercise, increasing your dietary intake of vitamins, and drinking enough water to flush some of those poisons out. That will materially increase your ability to process the stuff.

But there is no real 'morning after' relief that is helpful, unless you are so far into drinking, that you need some alcohol in your system just to avoid frank withdrawal symptoms. In that case, a nice Bloody Mary is just the thing, you alcoholic you.

So. Science.

And if you want to know more about the subject, this is a good start:

@Bric

Here's a manual that was successfully used to hunt, torture, and execute non christians, many times execution taking place via immolation.

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition, after all.
