My granddaughters both have body piercing and tattoos. I tell them they look like the natives I saw in Indonesia who used these devices as decorations and to keep evil spirits away.

With my religious upbringing I needed some time to try out some things god had forbidden, but dropped most of them within a short time.

I don't like body piercings either Joan.  Same with tattoos.  Both have risks of infection.  My body gives me enough trouble without me trying for more.

Spud, you are my kind of guy!

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 21, 2014 at 12:28pm

James, that is priceless. What people do to feel ... whatever. O guess I just don't have whatever it takes to fool around with my body. 

As a side issue, I don't like body piercing either. Seems so ... narcissistic!

Like Joan, I've never smoked a cigarette.  Us kids once or twice smoked some hollow dried weed stems for a short period of time, and once a neighbor boy gave me and my brother a regular cigarette to try.  I lit it, but blew instead of sucking it in, and blew it out if I remember correctly.  Anyway, I never got any smoke in my lungs, and I knew I wasn't supposed to smoke, so I didn't try it again.

Sk8eycat this was a hoax of the late 60s during the psycedelic revolution (Dr. Tim Leary et al.). I suspect that it got its start with the Donovan song, "Mellow Yellow" ("they call it Mellow Yellow, / They call it Mellow Yellow...."). The Berkeley Barb or one of the other underground newspapers even printed the recipe for bananoil. You were to take about six bananas and make smoothies of the flesh, scraping the oven-baked peels, discarding all of the outside peelings. Then you dried the inside of the peels and smoked it. You could smoke it all day and not get high since the Barb was putting you on. Ditto the jalapeno high. All you had to do was stick a canned jalapeno up your rump and the supposed psychotropic ingredients in the chili would send you on a trip you would not forget. Of course, you got no high, you only got a burning itching flaming asshole that made you wish you were dead. Thankfully, it only lasted for a little while. You don't guess this was the origin of the name of a famous group, do you? The Red Hot Chili Peppers?

I heard of banana peel in joints when I was younger, but never tried it. The banana peel, that is.

Chris, I have never had so much as cigarette in my mouth and don't intend to. I like my body, brain, and access to my feeling too much to put those kinds of things in my body. 

No problem at all with putting chemo poisons in my body, they had a chore to perform and I surely hope they did their job well.

Spud, you are smarter than I. Good job
