~ Ohhhhh it's TRUE, (even though I don't have a link to prove it LOL)... Not everything you or I 'ingest' is 'salted enough', hence, we need to keep with us a 'grain of salt'... <3
~ "Hey, 'Doctor', you've got that white overcoat and that stethoscope and all of these examining room 'props'... you just said that I have terminal cancer, and have the 'props' to convey that 'reality' to me, clearly... now then, just HOW MUCH salt do I need to add to this dish? Will it change how it is 'ingested'/'digested', either way, when all is said and done, and billions of years, the star we circle 'round flickers out and all that remains is the cold dark of the void?"
~ "Hey, 'Congressman', I see that you're at that rich deep wooden podium with your impeccably-tailored three-piece suit (but, um, lol, lose the tie, there, guy, lol) you just voted for this law, saying that it's for my own good, and for the good of my family and friends and neighbors and community and city and state and country and in fact the entire world... is this a document etched in stone, as you say, and by who's hand(s), and really, WHY/TO WHAT END? Does vellum last longer if you sprinkle salt on it, or, sayyyyyyy, soak it in brine?"
~ "Hey, MOM, you said not to burn myself by putting my hand over that flame, but will it REALLY - OWWW!! Crappers, okay, lol, YOU were right...!! Now then... should we pour salt in this wound/burn to help it heal orrrrrr...??"
~ "Hey, LOGIC, FACTS, 'SCIENCE'... is salt JUST salt...??"
(Chemical composition: The proper chemical composition of pure salt is NaCl aka Sodium Chloride. Chemically, it is 60.663% elemental chlorine (Cl) and 39.337% sodium (Na). Rock salt typically ranges between 95% and 99% NaCl, and mechanically evaporated salt and solar salt normally exceed 99% NaCl. Evaporated salt made with purified brine has the highest purity, in some cases 99.99% NaCl. ) - Wiki: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_salt%2...omposition
~ "Hey, MYSTERY (the as-of-yet 'UNKNOWN'), BELIEF(s)/FAITH(s), 'SPIRIT'... is salt JUST salt...??"
(Answer, kinda: NO. Apparently not?? LOL... More than just a sprinkle or a pinch of it here... http://www.bookrags.com/research/salt-eorl-12/
~ GRANO SALIS: "TAKE IT WITH A GRAIN OF SALT" - "(With) a grain of salt," in modern English, is an idiom which means to view something with skepticism, or to not take it literally. It derives from the Latin phrase, (cum) grano salis. The phrase comes from Pliny the Elder's Naturalis Historia, regarding the discovery of a recipe for an antidote to a poison. In the antidote, one of the ingredients was a grain of salt. Threats involving the poison were thus to be taken "with a grain of salt," and therefore less seriously. An alternative account says that the Roman general Pompey believed he could make himself immune to poison by ingesting small amounts of various poisons, and he took this treatment with a grain of salt to help him swallow the poison. In this version, the salt is not the antidote. It was taken merely to assist in swallowing the poison.
The Latin word salis means both "salt" and "wit," so that the Latin phrase "cum grano salis" could be translated as both "with a grain of salt" and "with a grain (small amount) of wit." - Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grain_of_salt
~ ANNNNNNNNNND THERE YOU HAVE IT!! EUREKA!! HOORAY!! THE ANSWER TO ALLLLLLL OF LIFE'S CONFUZZLEMENTS, SPIRITUALLY OR SCIENTIFICALLY, IS _SALT_!! (Orrrrrrrrrr IS it?) lol... The point of this 'pointless thread'? Not much. Just a mere quick passing of Time, betwixt you and I, in which we have the choice to better understand one another, or continue to ricochet off of one another into our own separate respective Paths... this fleeting temporal moment, what should I DO with it? What should YOU do with it? What does it MEAN? Nothing, except the meaning we each give it/take it to mean, separate/alone or together/consensus... What is it WORTH? (Not much, lol)... Nothing, except the worth we each give it/take from it, separate/alone or together/consensus. And, as pointed out earlier, ^SOMEWHERE up there^, what does ANY of it TRULY _MATTER_, when all is said and done, and mountains are crumbled to sand and oceans dry up and stars die out...?
~ What matters is _YOU_. Are you even worth a grain a salt? Are you 'worth your salt'? (LOL Wiki THAT one, if you will...). Who says? Who says not? AND TO WHO'S 'TASTE'...?? Are you salt, antidote, to those around you, even if just a grain of it, to SOMEONE, or SOMETHING? Or are you TOO MUCH SALT, so much so, that if plowed under, will poison the very Earth itself? And again, who says, either way? If you are sitting at a table, and you sprinkle some salt on your food, do you EXPECT your fellow diner to add the EXACT SAME AMOUNT OF SALT TO _THEIR_ NOURISHMENT?? Should we ALL have the same salt intake? Again, who says, and to who's 'taste(s)'...?? And, is that REALLY healthy, given our subtly-slight differences in chemical compositions, not to even mention, 'taste' (preference)??
~ Some of you don't give a rat's @55 what I'm -attempting- to say... others, MAY ponder these ramblings for a moment, before Living the rest of their/your Lives FROM THIS MOMENT ON, forgetting and/or remembering a few grains of this thread, among perhaps a dozen or two others. What has ANY of what I've said (or NOT said) mattered?? Helpful? Not helpful? LOL... and WHO cares?? Well, I'll be clear, I CARE. I can't say for a certainty HOW I intend it to be helpful, or WHY, I can only say that I do, and whether to one, or a few, or many, or most, at least let me be clear in my intent/intention that I quick made this thread (despite my computer problems that I hope to have fixed within days so I can log in -properly-, AND the fact that I SHOULD be out in the garden, 'Occupying My Time', but I'm letting the rain settle down a bit...) to throw it out there, a not-so-well thought-out and even less well expounded thought:
~ WHY DO YOU GIVE WHAT SOMEONE/'SOMETHING' SAYS/CLAIMS/STATES MORE AUTHORITY/VERACITY (i.e., 'less salt needed' at time of 'ingestion'/'digestion'), THAN YOU GIVE TO WHAT SOMEONE ELSE/'SOMETHING' ELSE SAYS/CLAIMS/STATES (i.e., 'MORE salt needed' at time of 'ingestion'/'digestion')...??
~ No reciprocation (word-wise) with the OP is necessary (lol). No replies are expected by the OP. No reactions are solicited for any purpose whatsoever by the OP, let it be known. Neither approval or criticism of anything that this thread is about/not about will be valued more one over the other, by the OP. The OP will be away from this thread, immediately after the posting of it, and may in fact be so for the rest of the day/evening, whether it sinks or swims of it's own merit. Anyone who thinks that they NEED to read ALLLLLL of the above (oh, crappers, I pry should've put this disclaimer WAYYYYY up there at the top, lol) out of respect or consideration or even 'obligation' to myself, the OP, (PLEASE, do NOT feel obligated to read ANY of this, NOR to even give it another seconds' thought, that is SOOOOO not what I want for you, or for me, or for US, _ANY_ of us), needs to consider WHY they gave one of my threads LESS (OR MORE, lol) OF A SALTING than they do/did someone's else's... that is ALL that I'm trying to say, in essence.
~ IF, and that's a BIG 'IF' (lol), I have 'added salt to the dish of your day' to your LIKING/'TASTE', then hey, KISS THE CHEF!! LOL jk... but if I have 'over-seasoned' your 'dish', made it bitter, made it inedible, wasted your time and ruined your appetite, I _SINCERELY_ APOLOGIZE, and my only defense is my 100% TRUTHFUL STATEMENT: I only wish to add a touch of 'salt', and to your liking, to what meager fare I have 'prepared' (lol, hardly) and humbly set before us both to share (or slyly feed under the table to the dogs lol) as either a delightful repast, or as vital nourishment, or as merely base and less-than 'tasty' sustenance that only for the moment crams the gullet and quiets the tummy's rumblings and is BARELY worth the burned carbs used for something MORE enjoyable than the 'din-din' itself, afterward. I hoped/tried to make a 'quick snack' that was YUMMY. But if you need to vomit it out, I will NOT be offended, I promise, and I can only tell you that yes, I DO have other recipes, if you ever Trust me to cook again for you LOL. ;)
~ I LOVE Y'ALL!! And <-- THAT, you do NOT have to take with a grain of salt!! (Um, well, unless you're a CoIntelAmateur/dis-info specialist/shill/hateful trollish-type lol... then you may not find my 'cooking' to your 'tastes', and would be better 'filled' with what is at someone else's din-din table ANYWAY lol...). <3
~ HOW MUCH SALT WOULD _YOU_ LIKE (DO YOU REQUIRE) ON THIS DISH (below)?? HOW MUCH BEFORE YOUR FIRST BITE, WHEN YOU FIRST LOOKED AT WHAT WAS ON YOUR 'PLATE'...? Hmmmmmm... OKAY, AND AFTER YOUR FIRST BITE, THEN...? ANNNNNND HALFWAY THROUGH, HOW ABOUT NOW...? SAME AMOUNT?? HERE, 'TASTE' THIS:
