Asparagus pee

Two quick things to post today, the first is this story about how during World War II officers in the OSS who were stationed in the Pacific were given canned asparagus in their emergency rations. The reason for this is that apparently asparagus pee attracts fish! So officers were given the cans of preserved asparagus in hopes that, besides being nutritious itself, the asparagus would help the stranded officers catch more fish and stay alive.


The other note is a plug for my research blog (click here or on the tab above that says “Research”) where I’ve just posted about what it costs to do research in the Florida Keys.
