Coconut BAD!

Coconut oil is saturated fats, and is as unhealthy as lard or butter.. The idea that coconut oil is good for you is simply wrong!

Top half or bottom half?

Also what is their opinion on African Swallows.

I could swear I just read this, although the comments have changed. Must have slipped into an alternate reality.
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

No, it wasn't you, it was a different reader.

Oh. Well, that explains everything. Someone else's experience got mixed up with mine. Damn OBEs!
