Tilapia is bad enough as is - what could they serve that's any worse!

Yoga mat dipped in cod liver oil?


I would probably eat the yoga mat (new or used) over Tilapia!

I did a small amount of sewage treatment. One of the final stages of water cleaning in some places is tilapia. It is illegal to sell these fish in the U.S.But there is nothing to stop them from being imported.

How does "royal ebony" compare to the regular wood in terms of hardness? Regardless of how we feel now, it was used for stringed instrument fretboards for centuries due to the hardness, tight grain, and high sound velocity through the wood. In some ways it's kind of wasted on fretted instruments, though I love the feel all the same.
