You Put It in Your Shoe, and It Makes You Limp

Mr. Lileks:

It's saltpetre, from sal petrae, salt of the rock, that the terminally credulous insist was dumped into their Army coffee. Personally, I've never found the urge to urinate much of a bar to sexual activity so long as there was a washcloth handy.

Salt peter would be what you add to baked beans if you want them to taste more like peter.

This is why they didn't offer you an editor's job.
