FDA: stop eating Nyquil-fried Chicken

“I love my albums…”

Also, “I got E. I got E. The old standby…” has a whole different meaning these days.

In Canada this is called Tylenol 3. It also has caffeine in it. I think it may have been OTC in the 1980s here but it no longer is. We used to keep it in our hiking supplies in case someone broke a leg or something similarly serious when we’re a two day hike from help. I don’t think it gets prescribed much anymore but I do still see it listed in patient handouts here from the healthcare service.

It’s still referenced as such here in the US by older folks.

That’s interesting. Huh. I’m usually very stiff, achy, and painy in the morning when I wake up, and I drink a cup of coffee almost immediately after waking up…and I feel better, but I had always just assumed it was from moving around and getting unstiff. Maybe it’s the coffee? Huh. I do know that one cup of coffee will not increase my alertness. It does, in fact, relax me quite a bit. I will sometimes even drink half a cup in the evening before bedtime because I seem to fall asleep easier.

I don’t know if it’s still done, but doctors used to prescribe stimulants to children with ADHD to calm them down. Apparently the stimulant has the inverse effect on their brains. Those of us addicted to coffee may have the same type of relaxation response.

Our oldest cat has become very finicky when it comes to eating but he also has thyroid disease which makes his appetite all wonky. Quite the predicament for him.

We recently discovered he loves poached boneless skinless chicken breast and we can leave it out longer so he can pick and nibble through the night without trying to wake us up at 3am.

Now I’m thinking if we poach the chicken in Nyquil we can get him to sleep through the night.

No One Was Talking About NyQuil Chicken Until the FDA Told Everyone Not to Talk About It

In Forli, I worked at a small web desgn company, and the sysadmn there used to work as a barrista, he said he used to drink 35-40 espressos a day, said after about 14-15, they’d actually start to calm him down.

On a semi-related note, beer can chicken is pointless. You don’t get it hot enough/cook it long enough to boil out the beer and allow it to absorb into the chicken.

Spatchcock your chicken folks. Without NyQuil of course.

I mean, you could. If you really wanted to. I doubt there’d be much absorption either way though.
