Well, the man himself would have been horrified given that the Romans thought drinking beer was one step above strangling your parents in the barbarian stakes, but it still exists. And that makes me happy. Here's to Pliny!




And your Pliny the Elder remedy of the day: a wolf's liver in mulled wine will cure a cough. THE MORE YOU KNOW.

Can I substitute a skunk's liver? Because wolves are kind of thin on the ground here, but skunks we got.

I love it! Now, have you actually tried it to make sure it was up to the standards of Pliny the Elder?

Well, yes, that wolf's liver in mulled wine will kill your cough, mostly because you'll be too busy retching.

I can't wait until you're running your own apothecary on Etsy.

In the meantime, what does Pliny the Elder recommend for stress and procrastination?
