It is a complete nonsense question.

Its kind of exciting because he took the questioning to a whole new place rather than just jumping off the other justice's line of questions.

That's the question he asked?

Wow.

Fun fact: Justice Clarence Thomas ended his 10-year streak of silence on the court, in a case in which the court is considering placing new limits on the reach of a federal law that bans people convicted of domestic violence from owning guns.

Thomas asked the Justice Department lawyer defending the government's prosecution whether the violation of any other law suspends a person's constitutional rights.

(news stories have alternatively said he "asked questionS" vs "asked a question". I don't know if it was more than one.

I thought that might be the case, but didn't want to call you out in public.

LOL

Fun fact: I was off in my statement by a factor of 5 - i.e. 25 bitter (wild-type) almonds for a 100 pound person.

Zog - "Grog, eat! Eat this!. Eat NOW!"

Grog - "Okay. Okay. Grog eat."

Something like that, I suppose.

Fun fact: Wild almonds (i.e. not the kind from the grocery store) have so much cyanide in them that approximately 1 per 20 pounds of body weight (eg. 5 if you're 100 lbs, 8 if you're 160 lbs) will kill you.

The edible kind we have today is a mutation which gives a much lower cyanide level. We domesticated them. All modern almonds are descended from one mutant tree long ago. Clementine oranges came about the same way - they are all descendants of a single mutant tree.

What I want to know is - how did we even find them? Surely in the early days we knew that almonds were deadly and we should not eat them. Someone at some point said "let's try THIS tree's almonds!" and didn't die.
