You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Turning this back around, it is one of the reasons I am spending the money for a watermaker. So I know what I'm drinking.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Well... sorta true. My better half is a microbiologist which means I am frequently reminded of what is lurking on the surface of EVERYTHING. Vegetables can sustain all kinds of funky bacteria and fungii, and long before they have processed enough vegetable matter to produce the waste product that triggers the "smells or tastes rotten" response in us, they can be in a sufficient concentration to colonise, well... us.

But the reality is, as you point out, most of us have a healthy pile of "good" bacteria living in us which eat the "bad" ones we INEVITABLY ingest EVERY DAY. Not that there is anything wrong with taking reasonable precautions - especially in the case of meat - but people have gotten too anal about this. As you also pointed out, the deluge of anti-biotics being used inappropriately is a big part of the problem. Unless someone is already immune-compromised, most of this stuff at worst is going to give you the same reaction you'd get from eating a big bowl of kimchi.

I wouldn't worry too much. We didn't evolve with forks in hand - our ancient ancestors just grabbed up some big ass spider, wiped it on a leaf to get off whatever moose snot or whatever was on it, and chewed the belly off the damn thing before they did a chaser of mushrooms and charged off through the forest. Be happy.

More likely, ate it WITH the leaf AND the moose jelly. Our ancestors pretty much ate whatever wasn't fast enough to escape them.

Of course, some of them got poisoned and died along the way, which might be why the survivors became pickier about what we'd eat.

yesterday, we ended running wing & wing in very calm seas, and ended up with that cool weird feeling like the rest of the globe is now on pause or slow motion as I sail in no apparent wind and am w/o list but some guage tells me I'm doing 4 knots. I always thought that feeling was the weed.... darn it could be the salad we ate?
