They aren't vitamins innit

UK man takes 40,000 Es in 9 years

He was also a heavy cannibis user. Of course if you're taking 25 pills a day, you do need something to take the edge off.

Apparently his neck muscles became so stiff and rigid he couldn't open his mouth for long periods. Remarkably, his MRI scans showed no anatomical changes, but his short term memory is completely shot, so much so that he doesn't know how impaired he is.

Kids, when someone offers you 25 pills every day, JUST SAY NO. It's fun to begin with, but fun doesn't last forever.

Recipe: Vegan Bean Curry

This is really good, and really easy.

2 Cans Cooked beans -- Your choice, I used Garbanzos and Kidney Beans
1 Can Tomato Sauce or Crushed Tomatoes
4 or 5 cloves of Garlic
1 Medium Onion
3 Teaspoons Lemon Curry Powder
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Dice onions. Sautee in olive oil on medium-high to high heat, until beginning to brown.

Reduce heat to medium and add curry powder. Stir until mixed with onions and cook a couple minutes.

Crush or dice garlic add to pan. Add tomato sauce. Drain and add beans. Simmer for 15 minutes or so.

Serve with rice, preferably basmati. Garnish with plain yoghurt and/or chopped cilantro to taste.

Lemon Curry is really good if you can find it. The variety we get here isn't particularly hot to taste, so it's good to taste a bit to check how hot it is and adjust amount downwards to accomodate palettes that aren't yet scorched.

At this point, I have eaten so much hot, spicy food, that the only way I know now that it's too hot is when it gives me hiccups. This isn't a macho thing; I have always liked chilis and hot sauce with food, and if you eat enough your taste buds become desensitized.
