And then I was reading my Book of Useless Information and read the following tidbit about frogs:
It was discovered on a space mission that a frog can throw up. The frog throws up its stomach first, so the stomach is dangling out of its mouth. Then the frog uses its forearms to dig out all the stomach contents and then swallows the stomach back down.
Argggh!! Manually puking?? Imagine having to a) man-handle your own organs, and b) actually get inside to the yuck and physically dig out whatever's bothering you. How could ever stop throwing up if you had to do that? The thing itself is so repulsive. I just really can't imagine having to choke down my own stomach. Blarggghh.
So let's just take a minute and appreciate the reflex of throwing up. And, probably, the reflex of so many things.
