Anaconda, Bodies , and Books: The most likely chemical in chocolate that might explain its feel-good effect is PEA, of which there can be up to 700 mg in a 100 g bar (0.7%). Most chocolate contains much less than this, and a more typical amount would be 50-100 mg. In its pure state PEA is an oily liquid with a fishlike smell, and it can be made in the laboratory from ammonia. (PEA has the curious property of absorbing carbon dioxide from the air.) When people are injected with PEA, the level of glucose in their blood goes up and so does their blood pressure. These effects combine to produce a feeling of well-being and alertness. PEA may trigger the release of dopamine, which is the brain chemical that makes us feel happy, in which case PEA would be acting in the same way as amphetamines such as ecstasy. PEA and ecstasy molecules are roughly the same shape and size, and this has led to the suggestion that they might work in the same way, but scientific proof is lacking that they do. Our own bodies produce tiny but detectable amounts of PEA naturally, and it is formed from an essential dietary amino acid called phenylalanine. The level of natural PEA varies and it increases when we are under stress. It is also higher than normal in schizophrenics and hyperactive children, but this is more likely to be a symptom of these conditions rather than their cause. Not everyone can cope with a sudden influx of PEA, which is why some people are sensitive to chocolate, often suffering a violent headache if they eat too much. This happens because the excess PEA constricts the walls of blood vessels in the brain. The human body has little use for PEA and employs an enzyme, monoamine oxidase, to dispose of it. People whose bodies are intolerant of chocolate appear to have difficulty making enough of the enzyme to prevent the PEA building up to levels that triggers migraines. symbisexual-disaster: Trying to learn more about chocolate and PEA, thought this was an interesting resource! Link In order to get his fix, Venom probably stops the MAO enzyme from getting rid of the PEA. Then he just sucks it up himself so that Eddie doesn’t get headaches. If I’m understanding this right, a chocolate-intolerant person would greatly benefit from bonding with a symbiote. Since chocolate-intolerants don’t make enough of the MAO enzyme, they need to either a) not eat chocolate ever if they don’t want a migraine or b) hook up with a symbiote that will slurp it up for them!  So it might be fun to write either Eddie or an OC who could never enjoy chocolate before, but after bonding, somehow is actually able to? Fun fun.

Bad, Dude, and Lol: 5:31PM hey dude serious question do you do binary? like code and shit? Yeah I can code but it's a very broad skill set you're asking about lol. In what context?

80s, Gif, and Growing Up: did you know? didyouknowblog.com You can't sink in quicksand. While it's easy to get stuck in and hard to get out of, it's impossible to sink because it acts as a fluid twice as heavy as water, and you aren't dense enough to go under. It liquifies the more you disturb it, sco as long as you don't panic, you'll only sink to about half your body length Photo Credit: imgbuddy didyouknowblog.com therapybegins: shadowkat678: iretrotech: imperialfistsspacemarine: mojave-red: absorbednebula: mojave-red: kompanie-mutter: keyhollow: perkachow: keyhollow: kokolokos: haywood-you-stop-that: ladyfabulous: did-you-kno: Let’s review. YEP. NOPE. Yuh huh. Nuh uh. Source Growing up in the 80s and early 90s really made quicksand a thing to be feared. Your only real danger from quicksand is getting stuck in a tidal area and drowning when the tide comes in the fear is back There’s also that dry quicksand shit What makes dry quicksand different? It dry idk why you used that Princess Bride gif when that’s clearly lightning sand These people don’t know the difference between Lightning Sand, Pea Sand, Pebble Sand, Drum Sand, Glass Sand, Moist Sand, Shadow Sand, Rice Sand, Fine Sand, Dusty Sand, Chipped Sand, Grit Sand, Crystal Sand, Glow Sand and Scrape Sand.   I’m not even going to try to pretend I know more than half of those Lightning Sand is actually sand that’s been struck by lightning and makes glass. Pea sand is sand that is not quite the size of peas but close. Happens mostly where sandstone cliffs get a lot of upward and sideways winds over thousands of years, breaks nodules off and rolls them into spheres. Pebble sand is irregular shaped grains about the size of pea sand. Drum sand is sand that actually vibrates when you either walk on it or the wind blows on it. The sand dune voice noises you hear are drum sand. Glass sand is sand made from glass fragments. Moist sand is sand that has water under it so you dig down and hit moist sand, it clumps. Shadow sand is sand that is black, usually made from lava flows that have been ground down to pumice. Rice sand is sand that has grains the size of rice grains. Fine sand is the sand you use for hourglasses and the like. Dusty sand is mostly dust with some fine grains, more or less powder. Chipped sand is sand that has chips of rock and other debris in it like sticks and bone. Grit sand is sand that is gritty enough to rub against itself and hear crunching. Crystal sand is sand that is made from quartz or other mineral crystals. Glow sand is yellow uranium sand, was used in Vaseline glass to make it yellow green. Called Vaseline glass because it has a look like it’s Vaseline. That’s the stuff I inhaled. Scrape Sand is sand is any sand being blown around fast enough to scrape paint or skin off something.  I live where there’s a lot of sand.  Reblog for all the various types of sand. You forgot the most deadly sand of all Gotta reblog again for that.

Definitely, Gif, and Omg: did you know?
