Over the past few weeks I've been hanging out with this weird old hippy. He really looks like a skinny Jerry Garcia. Aside from his strangeness, he has been telling us of these "remedies" he knows of. He is a mountain man and these things have been passed down from generations. Remedy One: If you eat a tablespoon of local honey a day, your body will build up a tolerance to pollen, therefore you won't have seasonal allergies. Its has to be local honey because of the local pollen. I don't know if its scientific, but it makes sense. Remedy Two: Apparently this is a Black thing. If you are feeling sick, cut up an onion and put it in your sock. Wear the sock, onion inside, and it will absorb all of the toxins out of your body. You can also put an onion on your chest, but I'm not sure when. Hell, I'm not sure about any of this remedy, but its what I was told. Focus:Old Wives' Tales. I think we've done this before but here's a little twist: What are some absurd remedies you've heard of and/or believe in? Has your Haitian grandmother cut off a chicken's head and fed you the blood to cure your hiccups?
