Since I have a jar of coconut oil in my bathroom (I use it on my skin) I decided to give the oil pulling thing a shot.  My coconut oil is pretty much always solid, but I figured since it takes less than a second to turn to liquid on my skin it would quickly change in my mouth.  Not sure how long it would have taken because I made it less than 10 seconds before I started gagging and running for the toilet.  Apparently oil pulling is not for me!

This one is sad and gross - an employee of a local grocery store was killed when she fell/was pulled into the industrial mixer. I've used my home kitchen aid enough to imagine exactly what happened to her and it's horrifying.

I hate having a sometimes inappropriately dark sense of humor. Not that I laughed at this... but my mind immediately formulated a joke for what is indeed not a laughing matter.

That is the flip side... there are some incredibly funny and wildly inappropriate jokes to be made, because it is a weird way to die. Maybe you can share yours on the things you shouldn't laugh at thread?

I got my conch pierced on 01/26. On 01/29, Little Man kneed me in that ear. It swelled up to about 3x the normal size. My ear was a pretty shade of pink/red/purple. I went to the piercer to get a longer bar put in. A variety of tools were used. It puffed up even more and so much oozy fluid came out she was a little surprised. She said it'd be really crusty and oozy for a few days. I have not been disappointed. Fortunately, my ear is back to normal size and the gunk has let up. I'm a little disappointed, it's strangely satisfying digging crusties out. :-D But I'm glad my ear is normal sized and colored again.

I tossed my cookies too when I tried it solid (probably should have mentioned that, sorry  :-[). That's why I warmed it up and added just enough sunflower oil to keep it liquid. It doesn't bother me that way as long as I only use a teaspoon at a time.

I really, really need to see pictures of this.   >:D

This is why you should finish reading a thread before heading for the stash of coconut oil!

I'm desperate enough about my post nasal drip (and the gag reflex flossing triggers...  and then the vomitting) that I'll try anything.

ETA the flossing, which was the whole point of trying the oil pulling! Post nasal drip => gag reflex + flossing =/= good in my world.

Thank you for the heads up.  I was going to dig out a spoonful and try it.  Instead add sunflower oil, warm a little and avoid gagging.

 I saw that! So scary. I have a friend who works in a supermarket bakery, but not sure if they have any of that equipment in her store; i think not; i think they get the dough etc. premade and just bake it.

We have a lot of industrial accidents resulting in fatalities in my area, and I cringe each time. Mostly landscaping related, but someone was killed in a paper factory recently. So sad.

Gross: After years without them, I have a yeast infection. The burning is beyond description. I am so glad that all meds required for recovery are over the counter now.
