    Not really necessary, just get Knoc to remove the offtopic postings, clean some things up. (once a while we must give him something to mod)

    Ok boys and girls, this is getting out of hand with that evil/kawaii things, just a little offtopic is ok but lengthy offtopics are a big nono. -nono

    Don't post a reaction on my reply, just keep going on with the Durian subject otherwise I will ask Knoc to remove this whole thread to the offtopic section.

    I think I know why... lauleens are heaty stuff... That's why, must drink a glass of salt water to wash down the heatiness -^_^

    How does salt water help with the 'heatiness' ??

    I don't know, salt water is known to reduce heatiness. If you have ulcers, it helps to gargle with salt water.

    Haha, this guy even mentioned it in his article.
    "Here’s a tip: Durian is a heaty fruit. To reduce this heatiness fill the empty durian shell with salt water and drink the water. That helps."

    Yeah, but ulcers don't necessarily mean 'heatiness'. The reason for using salt water on ulcers is it helps to dry the ulcer faster...

    is it?? i tot using salt water is actually to clean the wound... ? no? cos ur oral cavity contains heaps of different micro. so when u get an ulcer..usually cos by a mild herpes simplex virus.. u use a disinfectant...

    err i dont know... well.. we (wot i learn in school) dont believe that ulcers of the mouth are caused by 'heatiness'...

    Wait a minute, I didn't mean ulcers are caused by heatiness. Just that gargling with salt water helps with the ulcers.. that is besides the point that salt water also helps reduce heatiness. :p

    hmmmm.....sure is a 'heat' fruit..it could sure cause heatness .... and thats really a bad point of this fruit...

    heatness noo good: could cause the previous mentioned 'dental' probls....(ulcers...fei chi in canto?)
    but it can also cause fever and other sickness...

    I heard about the 'salt water' solution, in combination with eating lychees....also a known heatness maker!!
    But why it helps..no idea .....


    hmmm.....after all those years, nobody has come up with a solution for those poor people who think durian stink....
    they cannot smell or tast durian like other people (something genetic ?)

    You sure ulcers are caused by herpes simplex? As far as I know, herpes simplex causes cold sores, which are found on the lip and the surroundings. Disinfectant doesn't help. You'll need a course of acyclovir to get rid of it, and it's recurrent.

    Most of the ulcers in the mouth are called aphtous ulcers...they are of unknown cause, can be precipitated by stress as well.
