    so yesterday on a sort of "adventure" i ended up trying some sour grass. (if you don't know what it is it's a flower whose stem contains a quite tasty juice). however, i looked it up online and found out that the juice has Oxaclic Acid in it which is this chemical used in bleach and stuff. thing is i feel fine, but i'm hoping and praying nothing comes up! aaaaa :confused:

    I wouldn't sweat it... I used to chew on those things all the time as a kid - and look at me, I turned out just fine. But, then again, I do hear voices...:crazy:

    we'll just have to up your shock treatments a bit, Mistress ... that's all ... if you have any residual traces, we'll just up the amps!

    What song would you like Raven and me to sing whilst we juice you?!?!

    I believe there is actually Cyanide in Laurel leaves, but you'd have to eat a few bushes before you'd die from them! :lol:
