Re: hump day NOW blue dye

The ancient Celts used to do themselves up with blue dye made from woad.  
They smeared their bodies with it prior to celebrating or doing battle.  Did 
you see "Braveheart" when the combatants were blue?  Anyway, they ran naked 
and blue at their enemies to frighten them.  Information I have read said 
that, with their wild hair and blue naked bodies, they were pretty scary.  
I've often thought of trying it just to see how really nervous I could make 
some of the people around me, but I'd probably get shot and hauled off to the 
local deer processor. <LOL>
