    There was once a time you saw a movie star at the movies and maybe at the Oscars, nowadays you here about there medical advice such as what they put in a very private part, at least twice this week on podcasts.

    I would just like to say, completely not being a review at all, that I purchased a bag of Caramac buttons this week, on the off-chance that this may become the alternative standard of measurement to the Caramac bar, or -at the very least- a complementary measurement. They are, after all, circular in appearance. The estimation of angles would benefit greatly.

    Every time I ate a button, I thought “Why am I eating Caramac?” The bag empty, I was still bereft of an answer.

    Great show and I really like the letter Alice and co wrote to the Echo, featured in a subsequent post.

    Just a wee correction on that topic, if I heard correctly: You mentioned Laetrile/”B-17″ is effectively arsenic. It’s effectively cyanide. Laetrile can cause cyanide poisoning, as it’s derived from amygdalin from crushed apricot kernels.
