Deadly Emus, Marboro, New Jersey
Image by flickr4jazz
Whilst driving past the wild, open fields of nearby Marlboro, New Jersey, I came across a “mob” of wild, free-range native New Jersey emus. Yes, a group of emus are called a “mob” just like a group of crows is called a “murder” of crows!
I used to eat emu meat all the time when I lived in Arizona and I can say for a fact that they are particularly delicious if cooked properly. A typical emu weighs about 150 pounds and stands about 5 foot high, though they can stretch a bit farther up if they want to look over something. They are quite fast and can run at speeds up to 35 to 40 miles per hour. Due to the age of the species, they are sometimes referred to as “living dinosaurs.” They do have a sharp claw which, unlike an ostrich, probably won’t kill you if you get kicked. It can however, cause a great deal of pain and a nasty infection depending upon what the particular emu has been stepping in.
The emu is prized for its meat, its feathers, and particularly its oil which can be used for burns, chapped skin, and cuts to the skin. The emu meat tastes much like beef. It is lower in cholesterol and fat than beef and is promoted by the American Heart Association.
According to the Uncyclopedia, “The common Emu (not to be confused with the sadistic emu) is a very dangerous bird. They normally grow to about eight feet tall, but specimens on steroids have been known to reach fifteen feet. They have deadly sharp beaks that can disembowel a human in under two seconds, large talons capable of tearing through tires like paper, feathers that can take your heart out while it’s still beating. And sometimes if you feed one, it will try to bite you.” Also, “Chickens can run around with their heads cut off. With emus it’s even worse – they can run around for two days sans cranium. The Australian government advises all home-slaughtering enthusiasts to build a pen sturdy enough to contain a headless emu for at least 48 hours.“

The significance of these observations isas follows: The cholesterol cycle includes ( 1 ) a source of sujjply—the food; (2) an COO HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA unknown factor probably existing in the liver cells, the result of whose actionis demonstrable in the cholesterol content of the blood and of the bile;(3) excretion in the bile, the excreted cholesterol forming an additional sourceof supply in the intestine to that in the food. In the experiment which was carried out. the source of supply in the foodwas controllable. Two facts are noted: ( O as the daily intake of fat in thefood was increased, the daily excretion of cholesterol in the bile rose from thever\- low level which it had previously reached to the high level at which it had

been during the hyi)ercholesterolemic crisis before operation. Apparentlythere was no difference in physiological effort between the excretion during anartificially produced period of plethora caused by increasing the amount of fatin the food, and that existing under the abnormal conditions of the hyper-cholesterolemic crisis. Inasmuch as the excretion factor in the cholesterolcycle is equal under both of these conditions, it seems correct to assume thatthe excretion factor was not the one primarily at fault in the production of thehvpercholesterolemic crisis. The marked difference between the cholesterol content of the blood duringthe hypercholesterolemic crisis before operation and that following an increasein the main source of supjily (the food) indicates that the latter, at least in thispatient, played only a subsidian.- and unimportant part in the disturbance ofmetabolism which led to the retention of cholesterol in the blood. Some otherfactor must h.nve existed in the liver par
