Did you know that Vladimir Putin is a "Master of Sports" in both Sambo and Judo. I have a new respect for this man. He can apparently back up anything he says with a swift ass kicking all by himself.

Deers shit about 13-15 times a day and you can tell what they are eating in the area based on what the shit looks like.

If you find deer shit that is just a bunch of little pellets then they are eating leaves and acorns/nuts. If you find deer shit that's clumpy with those little pellets stuck together then the deer has been eating grasses and clover.

Then after you find out where they are shitting, pick the shit up with your hand and wipe it on your boots and pants so you won't spook those same deer in the area while you're walking through their feeding or bedding area. It helps mask your scent.:action-sm

To be invisible in the deer world :action-sm If you bow hunt then you will do it. You will have a lot more deer come by you since in bow hunting you have to be very close to the animals. You won't kill a deer outside of 40 yards, 30 is about as far away as you really want to ever be.

One can only wonder if something like this makes Pat from Moonachie jealous. Enough toes for two perfect sets of feet, separated by about 45 years.

But that document refers to spices and the specific action levels are not indicated. Besides which, FDA action levels are much lower than the average person thinks they are not to mention the fact that most larger companies maintain internal quality control standards which are much much more stringent than the FDA action levels for these contaminants (usually around 10% of action level). The average chocolate bar does not contain 8 insect legs. That's a stupid statistic which assumes all samples tested are at the absolute maximum allowable level of contamination and this is simply not true.

Find me one that says Hersheys, Nestle, Skippy, or Peter Pan.

I'll wait.

We're talking about the "Average Candy Bar" here...


because the top ingredient label does not mention eggs
because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes,
because they may contain undeclared skim milk.

because they may contain macadamia nuts not declared on the ingredient statement, and 4400 tubs of the Peanut Butter, Milk Chocolate, Macadamia Nut because they may contain macadamia nuts and peanuts not declared on the ingredient statement.

FDA asserts that its chemical analysis revealed that one lot of Encore Tabs contains aminotadalafil, an analog of tadalafil, the active ingredient of a FDA-approved drug used for Erectile Dysfunction (ED). FDA maintains Aminotadalafil is close in structure to tadalafil and is expected to possess a similar pharmacological and adverse event profile
Where's the Insect Legs?

Only one of these has anything to do with QA lab errors. The others are due most probably to clerical errors in writing the ingredient lists or failure to update ingredient lists for changed product. The last one is a back alley suppliment company looking to get away with someting.

Sorry, I often build controls systems for QA labs for companies and you should see the QA process for shit that you smear on your hair. Large, Reputable companies all have exceedingly high quality standards.
