    Until I got to the last panel, I thought the answer to ‘why does tea taste strange’ would be ‘it’s drugged to knock you out and erase your memories of tonight’.

    Uhm…Wolfsbane is a deadly poison and was used to poison wolves, hence the name.

  3. Syncline says:

    “Poison” is an imprecise term – basically it’s a matter of dosage and means less than labeling something “flammable”.

    Lots of herbs we call poisons now were once used in (obviously small) dosages, some recreationally, others medicinally, some cosmetically.

    And since what constitutes a poison is whether it CAN poison you in sufficient quantity… well…Water causes vascular collapse at high doses. Poison. Oxygen is toxic at 3x atmospheric pressure (not partial pressure, full pressure). Poison. Nitrogen is toxic at about 6 atmospheres and is narcotic long before then.

    “Poison” as a terminology means little other than to not be an idiot and to use caution.

    Are we allowed to make snarky comments about the Catholic church and their not going after the real monsters that aren’t supposed to exist?

  5. Sidekickgirl says:

    @Canuck: Yeeeah, let’s not. The problems of the Church are varied and plentiful, and I’m sure we all have our own opinion on them, but that discussion could turn ugly real quick. If you do want to discuss it, there is a section in the forum called “Controversy” where threads of a contentious nature can be posted. That would be the proper place for such discussion.

    Does this priest dude ever wear a shirt?

    A little more information on that herb:

    Aconite, Wolfsbane, Monks Hood, Aconitum napellus

    Topical anesthetic, liniment, fever reducer (oral, use caution), werewolf poison. Extremely toxic when ingested. Toxic when absorbed through the skin, as well. Can cause hallucinations. Belladonna may be used as an antidote.
