Carlin was right!

Now, if they could make such a pill out of broccoli and cauliflower....

Subby may not be kidding about the effect on friendships. TFA says they're taking a sulfur-containing compound (and probably a major contributor to the aromatic properties) from the vegetables and replacing the sulfur with selenium.

If this takes off, you may be able to identify melanoma survivors by smell alone. To quote somebody else's description: "Selenium compounds are, if anything, more intrinsically noxious than sulfur ones. Imagine a sort of hyperskunk, scattering its enemies before it and making them carom off trees and dive into ponds."

You would save a fortune on heating bills on those cold winter nights.

Biofuel, so to speak.
