    Today's useless fact - Does eating red meat cause weird dreams?

    Weird dreams are God's way of apologizing for having created
    logic. It's a widely held belief that eating, say, a juicy T-bone
    or prime rib for dinner will make your evening's in-flight
    entertainment odder than usual. There might be some truth to it,
    but it has nothing to do with any specific chemicals in the meat
    itself. "A lot of people believe that what they eat directly
    determines or at least influences their dream content," notes
    Harvard dream expert J. Allan Hobson, "but there's absolutely no
    evidence for it."
    However, red meat is, for many people, notoriously hard to
    digest. Most likely all that's happening is that you're having
    trouble breaking down that big steak. Throughout the night, the
    gastric activity is repeatedly waking you up while visions are
    still dancing in your head. The more details you can recall, the
    stranger your dreams are going to seem - because, as Hobson puts
    it, "Dreams are 'normally' weird." It's just that indigestion is
    giving you a clearer glimpse of the Fellini films that regularly
    play up there. So next time, skip the Tagamet and enjoy the show.

    Eating cheese bedore you go to bed gives you strange dreams as well. This is because cheese creates more serotonin (spelt wrong i'm sure) in your brain which is what makes you happy

    FC's usually drunk when he's here too.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    This is because cheese creates more serotonin
    At the risk of sounding nerdy, lemme make a minor correction to that. Cheese contains the amino acid tryptophan, which gets converted into 5-hydroxytryptophan(5HTP) inside the brain by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase. Once 5HTP is synthesized, another enzyme decarboxylates 5HTP into serotonin. I hope I don't lose any friends over this

    So which sort of cheese contains the most tryptophan?

    Cheddar?
    Edam?
    Gorgonzola?

    Give us the facts.
