Google-de-gook

I just added a couple of search windows on the side panel that may interest . . . okay, you're right - they're not interesting at all. But for those who want to search for blog posts on a particular topic, google's new "blog search" is a wonderful tool.


Above it you'll find a search window for "google scholar", which attempts to return references and links related to scholarly topics. Here's a search result page for the query "Just War Theory and Aquinas", to get an idea of the sort of results to be expected. Nifty little instrument.


Because the main mission of Soylent Green is a public service to provide miscellaneous information, check back to see local movie times and weather. In fact, maybe I'll add a recipe search window next. Here's one for an herbal tea that boosts lactation, just to whet your appetite:

Breast Milk Tea:

Use 1 teaspoon *each* of fennel, cumin and dill, steeped in 8 oz of boiling water for 15-20 minutes. Drink one cup, three times a day. Results should be noticeable within 24 hours. Then you can increase or decrease frequency as needed. Or you may want to try fenugreek tea or tablets, for the tea: use a teaspoon of whole fenugreek. Steep in boiling water for 15 minutes or so and drink three or more times a day.

finally some useful information!

Thanks, Bryan. I actually had you in mind with the recipe. As a survivalist I know how important lactation is to you.

Ah the milk of human kindness, or is it the kindness of human milk... ?

I'm going to put that on a T-shirt, Kerry!

But why is it called "breast milk" tea??? You are a funny guy!

TheBlueRaja said...

For two reasons: 1) Because it aids the production of breast milk 2) because should it be served with cream and sugar, the anxiety it produces when you announce the sort of tea you're serving makes it more fun than if it were simply called "herbal tea".

But you shouldn't call it that unless you are serving it to a lactating woman . . . although that kind of thinking just takes all the fun out of it!

Sometime when I have more time I will read some of your REAL posts.
What does the word "soylent" mean?

Soylent Green is a terrible movie in which Charlton Heston's sweat glands play an overly active supporting role. You can read why I entitled my blog "Soylent Green" here .

Please do have a look around and comment at will!

there was a website once called "shaky google."

when you used the search engine, it would make the browser window jump around spastically, and then return your google results. Sadly, it's been gone for a couple years.
