Recently I was battling a cold, and someone suggested I take Cold-Eeze, which is supposedly proven to reduce the duration of the common cold. It’s hard to know how much it actually helps, because colds vary in duration naturally. But I’m willing to try it. Also, it has zinc in it, which reminds me of an episode of Phineas and Ferb. 🙂
While glancing over the fine print on the box, I noticed this line:
“Product may produce a laxative effect.”
That’s information that it pays to know! Well, you might also pay if you don’t know! If someone started taking them like candy, reasoning that if one helps then surely multiple doses helps more, bad things could happen. Ignorance isn’t always bliss, as the saying goes. Here, ignorance could equal diarrhea.
That’s all I have to say about that, but I can’t end the post with diarrhea, so let me close with an appropriate saying I learned from watching G.I. Joe cartoons as a kid: “Knowing is half the battle.” In this case, it could be more than half…
I’m fairly sure some of you have forgotten about the “Contact Us” page of this blog. (That, or either you already know everything, and I have trouble accepting that.) The contact form is for more than just kind words about how awesome our blog is — you can ask any question. While we may not know absolutely everything, we do figure to know about 98% of all knowable stuff (+/- 3 percent).
If you’re embarrassed to use your real name, that’s okay — use a nickname. It matters not to us — we’ll dispense our ignorance and wisdumb to anyone. 🙂 If no one here knows the answer, we’ll make one up, and it might even be funny! Who else offers that kind of guarantee? Test us in this and see if we will not throw open the floodgates of randomness and pour out so much ignorance that you will not have room enough for it.
So bookmark the page, and when something is confusing, feel free to ask. You may not get a personalized e-mail reply, but if we can make a funny post out of it, it may get published on the blog. It’ll be fun — and it’ll be easier than googling the Internet and reading through lots of links. And who knows, you may even learn something! 🙂
