Sam Phillips, on his first meeting with Howlin' Wolf, was bowled over. "When I heard him, I said, 'This is for me. This is where the soul of man never dies'. He was about six foot six, with the biggest feet I've ever seen on a human being. Big Foot Chester is one name they used to call him. He would sit there with those feet planted wide apart, playing nothing but the French harp, and I tell you, the greatest show you could see today would be Chester Burnett doing one of those sessions in my studio. God, what would it be worth to see the fervor in that man's face when he sang. His eyes would light up and you'd see the veins on his neck, and buddy, there was nothing on his mind but that song. He sang with his damn soul."

The heat that peppers impart comes from an alkaloid compound called capsaicin, which is manufactured in the ribs of the chili pepper. The way to really keep the heat down is to remove these spongy inner parts. The seeds usually absorb capsaicin from resting near the ribs, so it's best to remove those, too.

Capsaicin itself doesn't have any flavor; it stimulates the pain receptors in your mouth rather than your taste buds.

Uri-Mate Urination Funnel
Tired of trying to deal with those filthy toilets when traveling? Try Uri-Mate®--easy-to-use, stiff-paper funnels that allow women to stand, with minimal undressing, when nature calls. Disposable after use, so it's a lot more sanitary than reusable funnels.

{that isn't sex. you think it's sex because you're so afraid. it's blood, they're twins, a right hand touching its left, no closer bond exists outside the same skin. but we're taught to fear. and we learn so well.}
