Out of the Blue

Well a bunch of circumstances put off my recent plans to make chili, but I finally got to it yesterday, and I have a bit over three quarts of brown gold cooling at this very moment. One complication was that I wanted to get a pressure cooker to preserve it when I was done, but became daunted by the question of whether our smooth-top stove can stand the weight of the large one I want to get, so I've forestalled that decision for now. And as the chili is a constantly evolving process, I have updated my recipe to best reflect my most recent technique for this.

Wyoming, Arrakis. No need for us earth-living folks to be concerned with this story.

Apparently the Spice grants immortality at the expense of your kidneys. Who knew?

UPDATE: In spite of my sad attempts at humor, this is a tragic story. The reason Spice was created at all was to skirt our draconian marijuana laws (Schedule 1? Really?? Alcohol is more dangerous, statistically). While obviously I don't think we should be selling MJ laced lollipops to toddlers, something as simple as decriminalization would have prevented this. MJ is a mild, non-addictive drug with valid medical uses, but the way we treat it in the USA is just stupid. This coming from a non-user, BTW.
