On The Trail Of Durian, Southeast Asia's 'Crème Brûlée On A Tree'

@Peking_Duck_SD
"I know that in Viet Nam there is a particular kind of coffee bean that, when extracted through the anus of a certain monkey, is supposed to heighten and rarify the taste."

Kopi Luwak is the coffee @ $100 a cup.
The palm civet indiginous to the Indonesian Isle of Bali, provides natural fermintation, while confined to an un-natural environment.
If you feel the conditions at Sea World are destructive to the Orca, these poor little coffee pooping cats are cage raised.

OUCH goes out to those Durian deficating pachyderms!
I have tried Durian and concur with Anthony Bourdain, "soiled diaper, rancid gym sock" mash-up euphemism.
Thanks to Lindsay Gasik I intend to try this fruit again, 200 diverse varieties & "The Durian Tourist's Guide to Thailand" available next month.

Candidate Helps Run Group That Says Homosexuality Can Be Cured

"Just say no" to a Woodrum holding any office in San Diego!
Perhaps Homosexuality will find it's way back into the DSM6, with a Big Pharma magic pill to cure such a birth defect.
Democrat/Republican, same corporate sponsors hedging their bets.
911, Muslimnoia gave us Homeland Security at the price of our Constitution & Bill of Rights.
Keep it polarized, us & them, vs "We the people".
Prayer in schools?
"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State." ~ Thomas Jefferson.
Only a Woodrum would execute Socrates, again.
Will a day come when critical thought places you on the terrorist watch list?
Merely my 2 cents from the East Village Idiot.
