Original Starting post for this thread:
I was trying to remember which eggs in the refrigerator were hard boiled and which were not, when an idea for a thread topic occurred to me.

Does anybody have any fun facts to share? You know, those always fun and often useless facts that just might come in handy to know someday?

For example....

Did you know that if you were to take all of the veins from your body and lay them end to end along the equator that you would die?

What did the US respond back with? " I could tell you but then I would have to kill you"?

Fun Fact:

The first message sent to Moscow via the Washington-Moscow Hotline was a (very common) test message, reading "THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG 1234567890".

Moscow, competent in English but not familiar with the use of the sentence for typography testing, responded with "What do your people mean when they say "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"?"

Heya VA

Still around, mostly lurking all of the interesting conversations. Hope all is well?

Two of my kids had a mild reaction to amoxicillin one time. Now they avoid prescribing it.

I think it might have just been something with that batch...

"Was that the sound of VA's head exploding? Lol"

It would have been, had I not been wearing a copper protective wristband.

It gives me a terrible sick headache. At first I just thought that they were ineffective against migraines and my symptoms were from migraine. Now I believe that my symptoms are from the Tylenol itself after I was accidentally prescribed a form of Tulonol because my doctor didn't want me to take ibuprofen or aspirin.

FF My body temperature raises dramatically when exposed to an MRI machine. Not uncomfortable enough to do damage, but enough to make me sweat around the area under imaging all the way through the gown and my skin is quite warm.

DD- what issues have you had with Tylenol? I ask bc I've had issues also--- when prescribed taking it nightly at the highest dose I had frightening, violent, graphic and bloody dreams.

I am curious about that. I got sick after taking Griseofulvin, which is a drug that "never" causes anything more than slight nausea. I was sick every 20 minutes for about 6 hours. The doctor assured med that it was just a coincidence and we resumed the medicine after a three week recovery period. The next time, I was sick every 5 minutes for about 12 hours and was too weak to even pick up me head.

I've also seemingly had adverse reactions to Tylenol of all things, but my reaction varies so I don't know exactly what is what.

I think I've had another reaction to medication with a headache so bad that I went to the emergency room. It might not be the medication or I might just need time to adjust to it but I just can't seem to make myself take it. Each time I have a bad reaction it seems to intensify with each use.

None of my reactions are in the anaphylactic catagory so doctors don't worry about it.

At this point, I'd rather risk a stroke than a bad reaction. Those have been less painful.

I reacted to another medicine
