    Hi Caustic Soda guys,

    I just wanted to add to your bit on anencephaly. This condition is caused by the lack of folic acid, also know as vitamin B9 (a supplement often given to pregnant women). Folic acid is found in leafy green vegetables but it is often not enough for pregnant women.

    Also, Africans are resistant to malaria because of a mutation that causes sickle cell anemia. When a person is heterozygous, meaning they have one dominant and one recessive gene, for sickle cell anemia they are resistant to malaria.

    The raptors you were mentioning were Utahraptors. They were discovered while filming for Jurassic Park was going on. They actually were larger than the Velociraptors portrayed in the movie. A Utahraptor stood about six feet tall, was twenty-three feet long and weighed over a thousand pounds. Their killing claw was thought to be almost ten inches long with the keratin sheath over the bone core.

      I think we mentioned Utahraptor during the dinosaurs episode….didn’t we?

    Just had to say i was disappointed to not hear a ‘Coiler Alert’ during your best (and a well needed 2nd) Poo epasode. Check out the Freakonomics epasode to hear about how this is our biggest organ!

    Oh god, did I really write episode as ‘epasode?’ Warning: “do not drink and post” should have been mentioned in the alcohol EPISODE!

    Ok, so I have a friend from Newfoundland that insists that being ‘screeched in’ or whatever is complete BS and only done to tourists as a complete joke. No actual Newfoundlander has actually kissed a Cod or said that line… maybe you guys have a resident you can ask? I’ve always wondered if that’s really how it is…

    • Joe

      It’s certainly for tourists, and the kissing of the cod does seem like “I’ll bet I can make him do something crazy if we tell him it’s tradition!” more than anything else.

      From Wikipedia’s Newfoundland Screech page:

      Screeching In someone visiting Newfoundland for the first time is a longtime custom of many older bars in Newfoundland, in which the person is to drink a shot of screech, kiss a codfish on the mouth, and answer the question “Is ye an honourary Newfoundlander?” with the phrase “Indeed I is me ol’ cock, and long may your big jib draw.” After completing these tasks, they receive an official ‘Screecher’ certificate. This practice is a marketing gimmick developed by the Newfoundland Liquor Corporation (and embraced by the public and bars) which enables it to build and sustain sales of an otherwise standard rum.

    ‘Many Dead Hitlers’ is also a great name for a band, i think,
