It's not just your dingle berries, sweet cheeks.

Got dammit, I used to eat those when I was a kid until my mother convinced me they might be poisonous.  Who am I going to trust, my helicopter mother or Euell Freaking Gibbons the godfather of the neo-foraging movement?

He called them chokeberries.

Oh yeah, we have a shiat-ton of these in Northern Maine.  The grosbeaks usually eat them all up in a couple weeks.

It's good stuff.

At least with this "superfruit" we don't have to rape the land of some third world country.  We can grow them right here in places like Ohio and New Jersey.

As long as we can put the açai berry "superfruit" idea behind us. To me they taste like a fruit crossed with an egg. It's kinda gross, especially the resultant burps. Berries shouldn't have that much umami in them.

We can do that already with blueberries. Mmmm, blueberries.

Costco used to sell Aronia Berry juice but quit selling it a couple years ago. Good stuff. Hopefully this will get them to bring it back.

Working with people who do some studies in regards to antioxidants... its a complicated issue. Oxidating agents are a two edged sword with both good and bad roles in the body, so antioxidants aren't always a good thing. And the whole "super fruit/super food" thing is bullshiat anyway. You usually can't physically get clinically relevant levels from pretty much anything.

Eat a balanced diet, exercise sometimes...

All berries are great.  Eat whatever you want.

Don't eat this berry. I heard it tastes like crack.

There used to be some radio commercial a few years ago trying to pedal mangosteen juice... except that having never heard of a mangosteen and listening over a fuzzy AM station, I always thought they were saying "Mango Steam", and wondering what the hell that was.... some process where you steam mango's?

As long as it's weird. Or Asian. Or ancient. Not from around here anyway, that's the key.

We used to use the unripe ones for peashooter ammo. Just the right size and free.

Aw dammit. I was gonna make that joke. Not with a pic, though - too much work. I was just gonna reference Liberace.

Oh well.

Interesting. I bet these show up at the local farmers markets this year.

There's a less expensive, easier-to-eat antioxidant in town

Not for long once all the hipsters, douchebags, and soccer moms starting buying it.

Just stopped off to unload my usual piece of trivia that the fruit we call "kiwi fruit" is actually the Chinese gooseberry. The members of the Chinese Gooseberry Association got together one day and said "Chinese gooseberry? We'll never sell anything called a Chinese gooseberry! Let's call it a... kiwi fruit! Yeah! Kiwi fruit! That's the ticket!"

Just skip straight to the nightshade berries. They make all the pain go away, and give the most interesting fits of delirium.

(nightmares love to eat that shiat)

How many New Jersey residents does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Three:  one to screw in the light bulb, one to witness it, and a third to shoot the witness.

I guess this means we'll have a whole new iteration of bullshiat ads with pictures of Melissa Theuriau as fake anchorwoman Karen Ryan from CNNnewsNow.

I was a bit surprised to read that those scams were run by some random dude in Illinois.  They had a real creepy organized crime vibe---I had a weird feeling that if I tried to debunk the ads, I'd end up hanging from a tree in the pine barrens.

One of those "weird trick" ads promises free electricity using a "weird device" that some engineer supposedly came up with. The device in the photo is a warp9, which is a series wound DC motor that is used in DIY electric car conversions.

Why shiat like that is legal is beyond me. I guess they figure no one should be dumb enough to fall for it or something.
