OpenBSD Okay, this is potentially very big news that really needs all the exposure it can get. OpenBSD's Theo de Raadt has received an email in which it was revealed to him that ten years ago, the FBI paid several open source developers to implement hidden backdoors in OpenBSD's IPSEC stack. De Raadt decided to publish the email for all to see, so that the code in question can be reviewed. Insane stuff.

oh no not the HFCS! That fructose/glucose mixture is so totally different from and worse than regular sugar (sucrose, which is broken down during digestion to, wait for it, fructose and glucose)

Yeah, they're BOTH bad. Thanks for pointing that out, as if I didn't already know. :|

But seriously, the only thing HFCS has over regular sugar is the fact that it will not rot your teeth as much (bacteria can't use it to form plaque like they do with natural sugar). I've been taking steps on sharply lowering the amount of both sugar and fructose I take in (mostly by replacing pop with spring water), while adding hot peppers (which I always liked, but have become hooked on...). My primary carbonated beverage these days is beer (if you guessed that I was drinking when I posted my last post or two, you would be right ;) ).

I am happy with stevia in my tea though. I have a plant from this year I'm attempting to keep going into next year. Plus there is a place nearby that sells NuStevia products (as well as highly-concentrated versions and other brands) as a last resort.

And I know that there are probably gazillions of carcinogens out there, but it's nice to know that I've mostly quit consuming one of the chemicals that fuels cancer cells.

But I'll take rotten/pulled teeth over cancer of any type, any day.
