    I didn't think hair easily dissolved - that's why cats cough up hairballs and people find trichobezoars in the stomachs of cows. All hair - regardless of color - changes to black when exposed to the acids and enzymes of the stomach, but for the most part, keratin takes a LONG time to dissolve.

    Maybe you should try it. I'm skeptical as well.

    But when you feed yourself to the plant, it gets digested by the plant. Then, your body parts become the plant

    (okay, I stole that line from "Little Shop of Horrors", but still......)
