Actually I think cranially challenged people are blessed with digestive tracts and immune systems of iron. I used to work with a guy (back when I worked construction) who was always drunk all week and high all weekend. Literally ate from dumpsters because he would rather have spent his money on cigarettes, and lived ..well, you get the picture. But I never knew the guy to have a sick day in his life, or hardly even get hurt! Never missed work, its amazing. Look at Keith Richards, Mic Jagger and the guys of bands like Aerosmith and AC/DC, they should all have been dead a long time ago. Any of us would have died of a heart attack or kidney failure decades ago. That's not to say that those band members are stupid but, you get what I'm saying.
And now that I am sufficiently off track....let me stop. And start cooking a half green sweet potato.
