So, it's 1:30 am and me and my neighbor came. To an interesting conclusion. In our less-than-6K people town, we have only pubs, butcher's, chemist's and florists. 19 pubs, 19 places to get a beer during daylight!
Which is just enough. You get shitfaced. You get something to level your stomach. You get a pill for your terrible headache. And then you get a flower to make up at home. Awesome.
19 pubs! So how's your town?

19 bars for a town of less than 6,000? Wow. My town is over 200,000 and I don't think I could count how many bars there. Sometimes I forget just how big Boise really is -- I usually just think of it as this small little college/farm town, but I guess it's a bit more than that. Cool.

I haven't seen the inside of a pub for a long while...
Even I live in 630000+ city. Playing the PhD game all along. Sad

PhD, is the game of getting from Igor to Mad doctor. It uses the system: a shitload of unpaid overwork. Not so funny No

Preatty much what Malkav said...
Plus the benefit of getting bollocked all the time for not working enough and lack of results. If you are such a fanatick, I could send you results of a few small experiments in need of statistical analisis done for yesterday, as well as outline of the publication I do not have the time to write... Yeah, I 'm a game fanatic too...

I should have become a lorry driver or something... Less stressful.

Molecular Biology. Close Laughing
Mostly plant's secondary metabolites and they actions on bacteria/wound healing/anticancer...

Cool! I didn't know there was many plants used in wound healing atmo the popular "natural" treatments are silver, honey and maggots applied directly on the wound. Of course I don't know much about the plant compounds that go into medications that fight infection which I'm guessing is more what you look at?

Phenylpropanoids and terpenoids mostly... They are good antioxidants too, so healing gets faster. Free radicals could be worse than bacteria for you.
What you said is good too. There is wide front of reaserchers to find something to replace conventional antibiotics. Bacteria are great with social networking: one gets resistance, all the others pick the trend as if that one resistance giving plasmid was going out of fashion... Hence synergistic aproach.

BTW, plants have been used for healing for like 7000 years now... At least. That and spiderwebs, maggots and honey.

I understand what honey is good for, since it contains the bbe's saliva. But what use are maggots and spiderwebs?

So like the use of Vancomycin and antimicrobials?

Oh I know they are ^_^ my knowledge in that particular area is just woefully lacking because we were never taught what went into medications more important to remember side effects, dosage etc. The only one I remember is willow bark and that had some pain relief properties in it Laughing

Maggots are brilliant with slough [A layer or mass of dead tissue separated from surrounding living tissue, as in a wound] covered wounds. Basically they only eat dead tissue so they'll clean a wound out in days rather than weeks and leave the healthy tissue intact. You can't heal a wound without getting rid of that first and it can be quite a slow process.

I don't think I've ever seen a wound cleaned out so fast except maybe the use of hydrocolloid dressing (Silver dressings etc) but they are only used for low to moderate exudate levels whereas Maggots can be used with a lot of exudate. Even in the middle ages healers noticed people with battle wounds that got them in tended to survive rather than someone who didn't. But of course these days they are blasted with radiation to stop their natural development cycle; so instead of becoming a fly they just eat and eat until they get so fat their mouths close up and they die.

Of course you could debride the wound but I've not seen it done that often; only really when things go very necrotic at any rate. Plus maggots would do the job just as well and be pain free so it's probably better to use them. Humans tend to be very inexact and healthy tissue can be removed at the same time so it's not as exact. But people tend to be a bit squimish about it so it's not used that often Sad which is a shame because it works really well.

honey is used as an antibacterial; it's not something I've seen used personally. Iodine works well and apparently it gets the immune system working as well generating white blood cells. That's what I've seen most commonly used at any rate.

I've never heard of spider webs being used (Although it does sound cool) but my guess would be they used to to pack wounds now we use Alginate dressings (made from seaweed) amoung other sorts of dressings, to help being the wound together and facilitate it closing up without leaving a hole under the skin. In the Vietnam war they used super glue as a quick fix since it needed to be closed quickly so they could keep fighting and also as a preventative measure against infection. Of course if the wound wasn't cleaned properly they'd either have to open it up again or face a nasty end possibly via blood poisoning.


Laughing I'll shut up now sorry Laughing

Here's a side street in the town centre near where I live now:

Honestly. I prefer the winters with less snow. Less shovel wielding, and less chance of busses being late, or not going at all.

In my opinion it's worth it due to the extra cold.
Also adds to the atmosphere.
