Ooops I did it again

Back in December 2005, I wrote about a little problem that I had.
Since I am a man, my genetic makeup prevents me from using maps, listening, and reading instructions. So naturally I followed the more is better approach when it came to Vitamin C intake and my cold, and took way more than the recommended dosage.
So fast forward 14 months and guess what doesn't get better with age.
I did it again with the Vitamin C.
I have waged a winning war against the cold and flu germs all season long, but they hit me with a surge this weekend and I am teetering on the edge of being less than well. I have had to keep my boys motivated to fight the good fight so I keep feeding them lines from the movie "300" for inspiration.

Spartan King Shifley: This is where we fight! This is where they die!
Immune Cells Captain: Earn those shields, boys!
[Immune Cells Cheer]
Spartan King Shifley: Remember this day, men, for it will be yours for all time.

So far so good, but do you recall what happens when you have too much Vitamin C?
Yep, that's right, rancid ass matter.
Farts that peel the paint off houses and render animals hairless.

This is indeed a blast from the past.

I never knew that was a side effect of too much Vitamin C!?!?!?! I take a shitload of vitamins and minerals everyday and I don't fart at all, like most ladies :).

I tend to have ones that are just plain evil. I normally use them as a form of self defense/homeland security at work. Sure keeps customers away though. I didn't know vitamin c was to blame, so that explains why it's most often at work, where I drink a lot of "free" orange juice.

You are fueling the fire, man. Vitamin C turns your ass into a bazooka.

Well as long as Mrs. Shife doesn't mind, I guess it's alright.
