Theodore had already read Logic of Sense, and pondered the Alzheimer's symptom
of fear of cuckolding. There were other distractions, such as diplomats to
Afghanstan croaking soon after having visited the Secretary of State's office.
While knowing full well there would not be enough time to save up for a ticket
by recycling aluminum cans, T. fashioned a time-machine from various items found
in the dumpster. Plugging in the date, 1903, astonishingly, it worked like
Approaching 5, Rue Chauveau-Lagarde, 8-10, Rue de l'Arcade, Paris, he saw the
sign in the window: 'Pharmacie de la Madeleine, G. Delattre.' Another sign
caught his attention once inside the apothecary: 'Crataegus Bocquillon Limousin
Prix: 4 francs 50.' T. with his crude Berlitz translation, cautiously asked G.
Dellatre, 'Hello, can you tell me more about Crataegus? 'Oui, il est indique
dans les troubles fonctionnels du coeur et dans les maladies organiques de cet
organe (Dr. Hucahrd, Journal des Praticiens, 3 janvier 1903)....Le Crataegus, en
dehors de son action sedativ, ralentit, renforce et regularise les mouvements du
coeur, et diminue la tension arterielle. Il est indique dans le troubles de la
Menopuase, les Palpitations, et les Nevroses, qu'accompagnent toujours
l'insomnie et l'irritabilite.' Theodore thanked the proprietor and swiflty ran
from the room, the proprietor expressing a look of incredulity after the
stranger with the strange accent.
Arriving back in the U.S. he saked the first passerby on the sidewalk:
T: Aren't chytrid fungi attracted to Crataegus berries?
S: Yes, of course, so what?
T: Aren't Batrachochytrium, the fungi distroying the world's amphibians, chytrid
S: Yeah, so what do you wahnt me to do about it?
Theodore walked slowly away, thinking to himself: 'pro- and anthocyanidins from
Crataegus berries are very similar to (+)-cyanidanol-3, which attaches to
collagen. Holy shit! Collagen literally holds the aortic wall together!'
