They talked about grapefruits, but they didn't mention how grapefruit juice makes pretty much every drug on the planet stronger?  It inhibits the CPA-somethingorother enzyme in the liver responsible for breaking down all sorts of drugs, including morphine, other opiods, and antidepressants, making them stay in the body longer.

And the nutmeg thing is true, I've done it.  I ingested enough nutmeg to have a psychoactive effect as a kid looking for ways to get high.  I did not get high, I got low.  Very, very low.  Would not recommend.

This delightful thread reminded me of a fat laugh burst from the belly just yesterday.

From a highly-recommended site called RUNT OF THE WEB I was privy to a photo of a pan full of gleaming red candy-apples, ready to serve friends and family on the first of April.

Except, ahem, they were candy-coated onions.

Tears of joy.

Methylene blue. It turns brown in the presence of protein, so it can be hidden in beef stew.

http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/features/why-pee-smells-funny-eat- as paragus

But only about one-quarter of the population appears to have the special gene that allows them to smell those compounds. So the issue isn't whether or not your pee is smelly; it's whether you're able to smell it. If you smell a funny fragrance in your urine after you eat asparagus, you're not only normal, you have a good nose

Has anyone else ever smelled your asparagus pee, and have you ever smelled anyone else's?

It could be that no, yours doesn't really smell different but it could also be that you lack the olfactory receptors to detect it. Non-excreters and non-smellers both exist in small proportions.

Don't do that. I tried three hits once when I was at a low point and bored. I spent the next couple days feeling a mopey sort of hungover with a headache.

SSRIs didn't come onto the scene until 1987, and M*A*S*H takes place in the 1950s, so, you know, there's that.
  But, yeah, I just read about the MAOI-like effects of MB, and MAOI+SSRI very often == serontonin syndrome,
  which can kill you real bad.  The more you know...

Coffee will also give urine an odd smell. It's not horrible, like with asparagus or beer, but odd.

No, it isn't. You just don't have the taste receptors required to appreciate it. Don't be blaming cilantro for your genes.

Well I'm glad this thread cleared up one thing,  i.e. that not everyone can smell the asparagus compounds.  Cos I certainly cannot, which I'm glad about, because I love asparagus.

Ham, on the other hand... ham always provides me with a very distinctive bathroom fragrance when it's time to tinkle.

/smells rather like ham, actually.

Also, MAOIs interact with everything on the face of the earth. Seriously, there's a list of stuff you can't eat that's a mile long, and it includes all alcohol, anything soy (including soy sauce especially), cheese, anything aged/fermented (no pepperoni/salami), and restricted amounts of chocolate and caffeine. And just any meat or even vegetables that aren't really fresh. Also most other medications, including ANY antidepressant (or St. John's Wort), and several common cold medicines (including anything DM/tussin, and Sudafed). The other antidepressants risk serotonin syndrome - so seriously you have to be off ALL of them for two weeks before switching on/off MAOIs - but the rest of the stuff tends to cause hypertensive crises, which can also kill you. And a few interaction can just plain make you temporarily psychotic.

So yeah, don't mess with those things. Or methylene blue, since it's apparently close enough to one.

As a child I discovered the same effect from drinking purple koolaid and/or grape soda. I believe it is caused by something in the purple dye used in these beverages/syrups.

I have no idea if or why sour gummy worms do something similar. I am among the small percentage of people that do not like gummies of any kind.

Asparagus has been on sale here for the last two weeks. shiats usually expensive, but now it's like 99 cents. So, you can assume our pee smells. If you're into that kind of thing. I have used asparagus undies for $10/pair

The research has already been done (by an Israeli group, no less). Everyone's pee smells when they eat asparagus. Some people (~40%) just can't smell it.
