Hearts and spades

I heard from a friend about a plant that I could use for birth control that is natural and safer than the little pills i get from my doctor.  You know of it? Nancy K. Ah yes, the old laserwort myth. The seed of the silphium plant, used in ancient times as an herbal contraceptive, has been suggested as the source of the heart symbol. Sure, this theory checks out in some of the oldest images of this seed — those found on ancient Cyrenaic (now Libya) coins. However, if you look up a plain old “silphium seed” the results are less convincing. Also, the “contraceptive” part?

You seem to know AAAA-lot of pimps, drug dealers and other undesirables, What kind of people do you associate with? Carol Archer -Boulder, Colorado Sweet and Innocent Ms. Archer... When I was growing up I saw on TV America Idolize role models like Police, Firemen, Doctors, & Lawyers (ok maybe not lawyers): However, in the magnificent ghetto where I grew up, my local Pimp/Street Pharmasist made 20 times more money than any Banker, Teacher, or other respectable job having citizen: He was always able to afford his rent, he always had money to eat and feed his family & he could always afford the best grimey lawyers that other people with "real" respectable jobs could not buy. Growing up watching the "product hustlers" we quickly learned: as impressionable 7 to 10 year old kids: about how to make it as a small business: from managing & training your emplyees, buying & selling invetory, networking with other businesses, franchising other locations, buying from foreign markets, public & customer relations, giving & taking bribes, manipulating the legal system, and a lot more usefull talents. Just like those most important lessons we see from CEO's at magnificant companies like Walmart, McDonalds & Mircosoft...
