  1. Julia Mancuso:

    I personally love doing hot/cold, it’s a great way to recover, if you’re going into the hot tub make sure you periodically get out and into a cold shower. For every 5 minutes in hot I do 1 minute in cold-- and the more time you spend in the cold, the better the effect will be-- it helps flush out the lactic acid.

  2. Mark Twain:

    We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again - and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.

    I read an article about the special immune-boosting characteristics of hot peppers (and) I thought, that's interesting because, you know, campaigning is pretty demanding, i'd always liked hot food -- Mexican, Indian, Thai -- but I started adding hot peppers, and then I got into eating them raw, whenever they weren't really, really too hot.

  5. John Dryden:
