Oh, rice has no vitamin B1.

History: Beriberi

Etymology
The origin of the term 'beriber' comes from a Sinhalese phrase meaning "weak, weak" or "I cannot, I cannot", the word being duplicated for emphasis.

In 1630, a Dutch physician named Jacob de Bondt (Jacobus Bontius; 1591-1631) encountered the disease while working in Java. In the first known description of beriberi, he wrote, "A certain very troublesome affliction, which attacks men, is called by the inhabitants beriberi (which means sheep). I believe those, whom this same disease attacks, with their knees shaking and the legs raised up, walk like sheep. It is a kind of paralysis, or rather tremor: for it penetrates the motion and sensation of the hands and feet indeed sometimes of the whole body."

Oh, I met a half French-half Dutch man who was imprisoned on Borneo during WWII at age 13 by the Japanese. His mother worked at the French embassy and was allowed to continue to work under the Vichy government but his father was sent to a work camp in the forests. The son was caught passing messages and was then imprisoned near his dad running errands for the Japanese.
He was given two cups of rice a day and he said he survived by planting peppers and beans (for their B1 vitamins). He also would give the peppers and beans to his dad who he saw on a regular bases.
And why are you telling us this?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe Ratzinger was sent to a concentration camp. I do know that he did join the Hitler Youth in 1941. Did he ever leave it? Was he put in a concentration camp on account of his leaving? Please enlighten us on this, the Pope's murky past.

Oh, I am aware of the Vatican banking scandals. Yes, they needed a fresher face from outside the Vatican to clean it up.
Did Pop Benedict XVI cause the problem or was he turning a bland eye to the problem?
Obama seems to be doing that on all of their phaux scandals that are going on in his administration!

I have no opinion. I was asking you. BTW, I don't know why he said he was resigning. But you seem to know. Please tell us. Oh, must have been a good reason, as he was the first pope in over 600 years to not die in office.

Investigations are under way, Rogue. Be patient, you'll soon know the real reason. In the meantime, YOU tell us.

You are clueless for watching Fox News.

Pope Benedict never was in a concentration camp as a young boy.

He was forced to join the Hitler youth.

But that is fact. STG was not an issue in the GZ trial. Self Defense WAS the issue and in every state that is a legal defence.
And the reason why it was not an issue was that GZ was given the opportunity for a SYG hearing and turned it down.

Multiple points here but I will address just one. You equate Rush Limbaugh's addiction to prescription drugs for a legitimate treatment of back pain the the use of marijuana and cocaine by both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama?
But because Rush had ten to many pills, he is more guilty than they were?
And what do you think about Clinton pardoning his half-brother Roger for trafficking in cocaine?

From Wiki: Roger Clinton, the president's half-brother, was pardoned for drug charges after having served the entire sentence more than a decade earlier.

It was odd that my father met with Billie Sol Estes in early 1963 while he was racketeering in the housing market in El Paso. My father needed to sell our house as we were moving to Fort Rucker, AL and when Billies buddies would not give my dad a decent deal my father met with him and got a better deal.
Three years later we were at Fort Leavenworth, KS and guess who was just off post in the Leavenworth Federal Prison? Yep, good ole Billie!

Billie Sol Estes
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Billie Sol Estes (January 10, 1925 May, 2013) was an American businessman; a former financier best known for a business scandal that sent him to jail for fraud multiple times and complicated by his ties to friend and future U.S. President Lyndon Johnson. Estes was living in Granbury, Texas at the time of his death. His body was discovered on May 14, 2013 at his home in deCordova.
....Eventually, Estes' schemes collapsed, and in 1963 he was tried and convicted on charges related to the fraudulent ammonia tank mortgages on both federal and state charges and was sentenced to 24 years in prison. His state conviction was later overturned by the United States Supreme Court in Estes v. Texas, 381 U.S. 532 (1965). His appeal hinged upon the alleged impossibility of a fair trial due to the presence of television cameras and broadcast journalists in the courtroom. He prevailed by a 5-4 vote. Estes was paroled in 1971. Eight years later, he was convicted of other fraud charges and served four more years.

Roger Clinton = Headache!!!

From Wiki: During the campaign and subsequent administration of his half-brother President Bill Clinton, Roger was given the codename "Headache" by the Secret Service due to his knack for landing in trouble. In 2001, Roger was pardoned by President Clinton for a 1985 conviction related to cocaine for which he had served a year in jail. The pardon removed his criminal conviction from records.

Blind eye on Vatican bank scandal? No, not really? Pope John Paul II, more likely.

But blind eye to church's sexual scandals, more likely. Don't forget, Ratzinger was the head of the Congregation of the Faith, the successor to the "Holy" Inquisition and investigator of all that are deemed church crimes. While he was no pedophile and did not participate, it is highly suspected that he "buried" many of the infractions and approved transfers of pedophile priests, not even notifying the new parishes that they were inheriting dangerous sex offenders. And the whole thing was hushed up for so long...

Prove it!!! Yes, it does mention "he had no duty to retreat and had the right to stand his ground" however the issue was "justifiable use of deadly force," not SYG!!!!
The Zimmerman jury instructions
By Amanda Sloane, Sun July 14, 2013

The form gives jurors a detailed description of "justifiable use of deadly force," saying:

"At issue in this case is whether George Zimmerman acted in self-defense. It is a defense to the crime of Second Degree Murder, and the lesser included offense of Manslaughter, if the death of Trayvon Martin resulted from the justifiable use of deadly force.

'Deadly force' means force likely to cause death or great bodily harm.

A person is justified in using deadly force if he reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself.

In deciding whether George Zimmerman was justified in the use of deadly force, you must judge him by the circumstances by which he was surrounded at the time the force was used. The danger facing George Zimmerman need not have been actual; however, to justify the use of deadly force, the appearance of danger must have been so real that a reasonably cautious and prudent person under the same circumstances would have believed that the danger could be avoided only through the use of that force. Based upon appearances, George Zimmerman must have actually believed that the danger was real.

If George Zimmerman was not engaged in an unlawful activity and was attacked in any place where he had a right to be, he had no duty to retreat and had the right to stand his ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he reasonably believed that it was necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.

In considering the issue of self-defense, you may take into account the relative physical abilities and capacities of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin.

If in your consideration of the issue of self-defense you have a reasonable doubt on the question of whether George Zimmerman was justified in the use of deadly force, you should find George Zimmerman not guilty.

However, if from the evidence you are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that George Zimmerman was not justified in the use of deadly force, you should find him guilty if all the elements of the charge have been proved."

I'll make it as simple as I can for you, Rogue. Read carefully :

It's ok to say to any man of any race when angry : "You bastard"

It's NOT okay, for example, to say to a black man : "You black bastard".
