Samyang: Denmark recalls Korean ramen for being too spicy
  • Negative reactions to capsaicin generally only happen when people who are unused to spicy foods ingest something too spicy for their level of tolerance

    That's a common misconception. One that leads to many poisonings of "seasoned veterans" every year.

    So yes, this is Denmark "not being able to handle spicy food

    No, this is the Danish food agency doing their job of minimizing preventable food poisoning.

    The problem here is probably people with zero tolerance trying to eat it as a 'challenge'.

    Again with the common misconception. No matter how many times you've heard people who love spicy food say that doesn't make it true and neither does YOUR repeatedly claiming it.

  • Dansk Fødevarestyrelse: bans product containing poisonous amounts of popular chemical

    Rest of the world: laughs at Denmark for "not being able to handle spicy food" 🙄

    Painful exposures to capsaicin-containing peppers are among the most common plant-related exposures presented to poison centers.[31] They cause burning or stinging pain to the skin and, if ingested in large amounts by adults or small amounts by children, can produce nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and burning diarrhea. Eye exposure produces intense tearing, pain, conjunctivitis, and blepharospasm.[32]

    Ingestion of high quantities of capsaicin can be deadly,[37] particularly in people with heart problems.[38] Even healthy young people can suffer adverse health effects like myocardial infarction after ingestion of capsaicin capsules.[39]

  • Literally an even worse version of Nancy Pelosi. And since he's "only" 53 and the corrupt DNC leadership has full control over it, he'll probably remain the Dem House leader for the next 30 years 😮‍💨

  • Globally, Biden Receives Higher Ratings Than Trump
  • That's REALLY damning with faint praise.

    I too would much rather get a nasty bout of pneumonia than stage 4 leukemia! I'd still much prefer a clean bill of health, though.

    Things most of the world likes and respects more than Trump, in no particular order

    • Hemorrhoids
    • Nickelback
    • Toe fungus
    • Pubic lice
    • Corporate tax lawyers
    • Every member of Smashmouth
    • Crying babies on planes
    • Surprise feces
    • Ruefully expected feces
    • Carrot Top
    • The movie Gigli
    • People who walk barefoot in cities
    • People who wear shoes in Japanese restaurants
    • King Charles (any. Including the one the United States rebelled against)
  • OpenAI's ChatGPT not working for hours as millions forced to use brain in 'major outage' server status
  • Reminds me of a news segment from The Onion Movie, which came out long before the internet became an integral part of international commerce:

    The internet went down for three hours this morning, plunging the nation into productivity.

    The outage, which caused major work startages from New York to California, prevented an estimated 120 million American employees from messing around on the Web at work.

  • "Avon"
  • Reminds me of the Disney movie Brave:

    The royal castle is called Castle Dunbroch (Castle Castlecastle) and it also prominently features Eurasian Brown Bears, whose species name is Ursus arctos arctos (Bear bear bear)

    This amuses me greatly.
  • A horrified Lesly [girlfriend of Marty] witnesses the encounter and speaks to Anthony [younger brother of Marty], who had already told her of Marty and Jackie's incestuous relationship. He convinces Lesly that he is a virgin, leading to a brief and awkward sexual encounter.

    Not weird at all, no sirree! 😂

  • Most Black Americans Believe “Racial Conspiracy Theories” About U.S. Institutions
  • Majorities say the criminal justice, political and economic systems were designed to hold Black people back

    Alternate headline: black people aware of American history.

    What kind of gaslighting nonsense must the rest of the article be when it STARTS by denying what's obvious to anyone paying attention?? 🤦

  • A Majority of Voters Backing Biden Are Mostly Motivated by Stopping Trump — Poll
  • Of course. He'd never win if not for the alternative being a fascist convicted of multiple kinds of fraud.

    Hell, he almost didn't the first time around and that was WITHOUT being a willing participant in numerous crimes against humanity!
