    ^Oh wow! Definitely do learn something new everyday. xD

    If you add garlic to a dish, make sure it's put in near the end of cooking. It can burn extremely fast and lose its flavour within minutes (unless in a liquid).

    If someone is suffering a crushing injury to one of their extremities (pinned by machinery, rocks, etc) for an extended period of time (an hour or more), then one of the worst things you could do is remove the item doing the crushing in a hurry! Your first instinct might be to remove the offending object, but if it's been on them for a long time, this instinct could very well kill the person you're trying to help.

    When a limb or other appendage is compressed to the point of lost circulation, the tissue begins to create acidity as a result of anaerobic metabolism and cell lysis. This causes the buildup of acid within the second and third space of crushed appendage. If the object has been pinning that person's arm, leg, or whatever for a long time, suddenly removing that compression could quickly move these acidotic fluids back into systemic circulation, causing damaging metabolic acidosis, which could prove to be fatal. Not to mention certain electrolytes that have been pooling in the extremity could hurt vital organs, particularly excess potassium causing complications of the heart rhythm.

    So if you ever stumble across someone that's had a leg pinned by a boulder for a long time (or something similar), don't try and get it off them! If you can, call for help and let them do it so they can give the right drugs and treat the injury appropriately. Crush injury/compartment syndrome should ideally be mitigated with IV sodium bicarbonate and/or mannitol.

    A tourniquet might be an option in dire emergencies, but it'll only act to slow the effects rather than prevent them like proper pharmacological intervention would. If you're going to use a tourniquet in this situation, make sure you've got help on the way or are going to get to it quickly!

    there's new evidence to support that the black plague was actually spread by gerbils, not rats. :O

    Not only that, but it still has its little endemic pockets around the world to this day! In the US, the four-corners area has a handful of cases pop up annually (typically well under 50), primarily due to prairie dogs and other such small mammals acting as vectors. O:

    Never ever use fat-free cheese when making a cheese sauce. It'll clump like the devil and never liquify (man, what a disaster.. ).
