Welcome to the Tuesday Coffee Hour here on Street Prophets. This is an open thread where we can hang out and talk about what’s going on in our worlds. To get us started today, I thought I’d talk about seasickness.

Seasickness is a really great way to spoil a perfectly fun boating trip. Seasickness is a form of motion sickness which manifests itself in the form of a churning gut, dizziness, watery mouth, cold sweats, and an overall greenish pallor. On a boat, when the motion you feel is not what you see, you can get seasick. Until you get used to the unpredictable motion or get away from it, the symptoms won’t improve.

The only real way to prevent seasickness is to avoid getting on a boat. However, aboriginal seafarers for many generations have been ingesting ginger root as an effective preventative treatment.

Have you ever been seasick?

This is an open thread, so feel to share about what’s happening in your life even if it doesn’t involve a boat.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
