    Lobster, crab, shrimp, things like that. I'm allergic to shellfish, so if I'm gonna die anyway,
    I might as well enjoy.

    Different types of yeast can cause intense fermentation activity. From what I've read, dry

    Great view from our ship out in the middle of the Pacific. It's my first time seeing a lunar
