 Post subject: Other uses for foods
PostPosted: Wed Nov 19, '08, 8:34 pm 
Foods are great for eating, but have you ever thought about the other ways that we use different types/kinds of foods?

How about as weapons - here's a story where a guy used a sandwich as a weapon. No word on whether it was a club sandwich, or not. :p I almost put this one in the "ridiculous story of the day" thread, and that's probably where it belongs. :wink:

On the same thought, though, I've seen movies where a hostile crowd throws rotten tomatoes at someone they are unhappy with, and sometimes even eggs are thown at people. Incredible!!

I'm sure there are much more constructive uses of some foods (especially eating them) than those ideas already mentioned here, though. Can anyone think of any others???????

Well, there's medicine for one. All kinds of different stuff can have medicinal purposes.

I've heard that tomatoes can be good for getting rid of the smell of a skunk, though I'm not sure if that's true.

I've heard that about tomatoes too, Thoul. I think I saw it in a movie or something.

Hey, how about using a piece of steak or other meat to cover your eye when you have a black eye? I've never done it my self but I see it all the time on TV. I guess the meat is supposed to stop the swelling or something.

I'd rather use ice for that. I've heard of the meat thing before, but most meat I've seen has been bloody enough that I wouldn't try that.

Just thought of something else.

Garlic, although very good in many dishes, soups, breads, etc., was sometimes worn as a necklace of sorts and used as a tool to ward off vampires, werewolves, various illnesses, or other ominous forces. :covereyes:

rauschenburg used to make screen prints with food.

you can also paint with baking soda mixed with clear ink on paper, then use a hair dryer to make it appear.

ginger is really good for clearing up your sinuses, as well.
