Ok you see this is what I don't get.. Ones internal body temperature is 37degrees celcius right? So wouldn't it all just heat up once swallowed and not affect the tummy?

It doesn't warm up fast enough. Room-temperature probably wouldn't be so bad, it's the chilled stuff to watch out for. Even so though, m-i-l always serves hot tea with raclette and fondue.

Re: EF Worst Advice of the Day Thread

If you're concerned about the acidity of Coke, I assume you've stopped drinking wine as well.

Isn't wine actually healthy, in little doses?

I think it is the phosphoric acid people object with coke, not just coke being sour. Does wine have a lot of phosphoric acid?

the touch of the cold water and the cheese already in the stomach is what solidifies it. This myth is true but there is nothing better than an ice cold beer with the fondue, so I carry the consequences


Cheese is solid at body temp.....do you think your fondue is still liquid in your stomach?

This is NOT an accurate representation of your stomach!

Re: EF Worst Advice of the Day Thread

On any problem thread its pretty much guaranteed that someone will come along and prescribe vinegar e.g removing stains, masking smells, killing weeds, descaling kettles, cleaning windows, stainless steel blemishes, sore throats, cracked skin, too much fondue, weight loss, anti-dandruff, mosquito repellent, drain unclogging etc..

Vinegar may have some limited efficacy in all the above cases, but unless you live in a cave there's much better stuff out there.

It was supposed to be a thread to highlight bad advice but people seem to think it's an extension of the other thread

Seems like a fail of a thread from me
Darn them, because I really like the idea of a Worst Advice of the Day Thread.

Re: EF Worst Advice of the Day Thread

Nicky - I think Porsch meant EF is full of failed threads, not that you create loads of failed threads. You owe me a "get out of jail free" card, Porsch

As for advice, what is it with water?

Drink water!

Not exactly, you should shave your velcro triangle with an old rusty hacksaw and then apply vinegar. I'm sure I read it on EF at some point....

As a generic comment usually by morons who are only smiling because, well, the gormless look suits them ... "Smile, it may never happen!".

Actually food dissolves in the stomach/gut due to enzymes and our old friend hydrochloric acid (acido clorhidrico in Spanish) so this melting and coagulating is just a bit to me...

Digestion isn't "that" fast, although I don't care to gross everyone out by explaining how I "know" but suffice to say, adequate application of alcohol a time or three in my younger years showed such evidence quite clearly.

Also, for goofs like me, without all the original parts, perhaps a little extra heat and / or acid is a good thing? Bring on the cola I say (as I did learn in those early years that alcohol - particularly wine - really isn't my friend)!

Any EF relationship advice, which seems to pop up almost every day, is pure rubbish.

Oh I know that digestion is not that fast, it takes up to 6 hours if I am not mistaken (which I coul dvery well be), I just don't get the melting and coagulationg, because these sound like they are regulated by temperature changes...having said that foods that are too hot or cold do alter food degradation, where is my physiology book when I need it?

Re: EF Worst Advice of the Day Thread

I think that would be speed dating advice...we had a thread, didn't we.

Or maybe, the advice to accept injustice for the sake of successful integration.

Or, maybe, piss standing?

I don't buy the cheese coagulating nonsense either. Booze is great for greasy food, hence calming the gall bladder fit a lot of people have after fondue/raclette (kirsh shots). It's gall bladder people struggle with, not cold drinks in their tummies after too much greasy and hot cheese. Me thinks.

Yeah. I had gall bladder fit after a hot, greasy desert, though.

Dont stress yourself, us crazies, will continue with raclette and fondue in the summer, accompanied by drinks of all temps and nature...
