  • Lol, These are neat! Things were so much simpler back in the day!
  • I actually can't stop laughing at it.  How could you even sleep with an onion in you?  I think I could get behind the peeing on barley and wheat, if they could get that done nicely and i'm not just peeing in the yard, but they got like a bathroom/pot kit, where it isn't messy and is easy to purchase. haha



      


  • Someone should try one. Maybe the key. but not your house key - ew.

    Boy can u IMAGINE if your DH walked in on this?

    "Hi honey- what ya doin?"

    "Trying to save money on pregnancy tests! According to this wheat and barley I could be knocked up. Better back it up with an onion just to be sure"

    My DH would have me committed 8-}

  • Can you later USE the wheat and barley? win/win? 



      


  • Well I was going to suggest that everyone in the 2WW draw straws for who should test the onion one but it looks like this isn't such an onion-friendly group...

    Thanks for sharing this @KC1212!  That was really interesting.

    No no wait.. I think you are on to something here.  That would be a great board experiment.  Sadly I am not in the 2WW so I am out. 
    :-?

    It's a pretty terrible suggestion for someone in the 2WW...don't know what I was thinking there.  One of the perks of a short LP I guess is that I will be in the clear within the next 24 hours or so. :)  And actually we're out of onions.  DH told me that last night.  So I'm liking my chances here.  Now for a way to draw straws virtually...

    We need to keep our sense of humor or we will all go mad.

    Agreed.  And if someone has to get a yeast infection to entertain us and keep us sane, then so be it!

  • That was very entertaining! Pretty awesome that the wheat and barley actually works! Some of those are super weird. Oh, but I was going to say, the one about being able to tell if a woman is KU through her urine...I can kind of see that. When I am KU, my urine and general smell down there is much stronger than usual. Does this happen to anyone else?

  • @KC1212 lol. Well it could just be me!!! This also happens to me the closer I get to my period so I think it just has to do with my hormones. Your new nickname can be pee sniffer ;)
