  •  Organic eggs have less salmonella (1+ / 0-)

    I always use organic eggs when making egg nog or anything with raw eggs in it.

    It's still a bit of a crap shoot. Alton Brown says that no one has ever gotten salmonella from egg nog. Maybe it is the alcohol.

    They do something to the chickens in a factory egg farm to make them lay more eggs. I think that it is called "forced molting." Basically, they give them a drug that makes all of their feathers fall out. For some reason this makes an older chicken start laying eggs like she did when she was young. This practice is prohibited in organic farming.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
