My friend Tabasco collared me at Brianna and Fauxfaux’s wedding a couple weekends back and asked if he could have some Hive Mind honey for his allergies.  Turns out, eating local honey, by exposing you to low doses of the various pollens in your area, helps build up your body’s immune system to those allergens.

There’s a whole article about it over at Pioneer Thinking.  Clearly, Tabasco needs it, as can be seen in the photo to the right, in which his allergies have obviously caused his tongue to extrude bizarrely from this mouth.

More incentive to actually extract that honey I’ve got sitting in my basement.
