There's a horror thriller about the catacombs called "As Above, So Below", made in paranormal activity-style, all hand-cam. Besides turning into a horror movie, it gives a good depiction about what goes on in those catacombs.

double yolk eggs are produced by young hens who haven't mastered laying yet. a hen produces an egg every 28 hours give or take 15 minutes ie 6 a week. to make a double yolker there has to be an interruption in the egg producing cycle. the local egg producer to me in the spring gets new hens and for the next 6 weeks to the end of june there are double yolkers https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yolk#Double-yolk_eggs

Standard teabags are 20% plastic, it's how they seal round the edges. Look in a compost pile at the teabag skeletons. Loose leaf tea is really not that much effort. People are so lazy. Give me convenience or give me death.
