I broke my own rule to try just about anything, except brains, when I choked down some bread with a tiny bit of cow brains at my friend's Offal party. I did it, it really didn't taste bad at all and I survived - so I can be proud, but I still feel slightly sick to my stomach and my throat closes up just thinking of it. Prions, people, prions!! And, as a seeming vindication that my rejection of brains, (and reason why my zombie friends no longer come over for dinner), is not utterly ridiculous, a story was released today about a NEW strain of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) in Britian that people with a certain gene variant are susceptible to.
