How many of you find that tryptophane, the chemical in turkey that supposedly makes one drowsy, actually has an effect on you?

It's hard to tell. If you're drwosy it could just be from eating all that food on the table, not neccessarily the tryptophan:/

Eating a lot of anything heavy served with gravy makes me drowsy. Most likely because of the extra resources needed to digest it and the wine that is usually consumed simultanously. Tryptophane is an aromatic amino acid btw, one of the building blocks of your body (and the turkey's).

I think its just the fact that alot of people tend to gorge them selves when they have a turkey dinner and the likes, It takes alot of energy to digest food especialy meat so thus some people get sleepy.

I'm sicksies too. :-/

Hey, if a turkey bites itself for some reason, lets say to bite its nails and swallows it, does that mean it will become sleepy?

Hellll yeah! That one's my favorite too. Heard the In Flames cover, though? I like it because it's just so unlike any of the others, you know, being metal and all.

Never heard of In Flames.

I still want to get that one 'For the Masses' album though. Should have gotten that instead of the Singles 86-98 album. But that was back when I hardly knew a thing about them...heh.
