My wifes refuses to eat them for that reason. And I grill them really well, very tasty and crunchy. They had them for 79 cents/lb at our local Asian market yesterday so I bought like 5 lbs worth, and ate about a pound of that myself.
I used the bathroom shortly thereafter, then decided to start a thread about it.

You should pickle a jar or two.

This is one of the silliest topics I've seen on this forum yet.

Your urine smells of asparagus when you eat it? And tell me, does your urine smell like a rose when you don't?

When I eat asparagus, and then afterwards... I'm reminded that the asparagus was so good!

I saw it in the store today on one of the "in front" stands. Maybe I should buy some. It's one of my favorite vegetables.

Those who claim they can detect no change in the smell are really just insensitive to the odor - not immune to the change that occurs.

Jack Nickolsen, when he played a werewolf, asked the same question as he was peeing on someone's shoes, and I can't remember the flick. Dang.

"Wolf"

Oh Yeah, you think the pee smells? Try losing a bunch in your car, that doesn't get driven much, in South Florida upper 80's/low 90's, for almost a week! You'll think the pee smells delightful!

GB, logically, Pee can be lost--by rolling under the front or back seat.

First, you take a school aged child, provide them with numerous letters of the alphabet so they might enrich their lives with spelling and creativity.

Here are the letters of the alphabet: How do you spell the letters of the alphabet
As Andy M says (giving him a hard time here), google it.

Pee is one of the 26 letters of the alphabet. It is the letter after oh and before que/cue (depending on whether you are quebecian or a music teacher).

A group of Pees could easily be stored in small plastic containers which roll easily under the front or back seat. Cars have been bought and sold with lost bunches of Pees lost beneath the seats--both kinds, the asparagus kind and non-distinct kinds.
