We've been watching X Files now for a few months. We're in Season Three, just finished disc 3 and it has been so fun! One thing I notice is how both Mulder and Scully are like walking encyclopedias! They'll approach a crime scene and recall theevery possible effect of chemical/bacteria/viscous liquid A B and C in combination with an obscure animal/bug/genetic disorder and an obscure case study in Ohio and presto, they've solved the case.
I don't really know any facts or information that could be helpful in solving these X files. But it occurred to me that I may be helpful if the case included a body found in a garden bed.
Me: "Look at these hydrangeas, Mulder."
Mulder: "What about them, Gidlund?"
Me: "Well, I've heard about cases like this, [picking at blossom with long pair of tweezers] where the showy parts of the plant, or, flower, take on different colors according to the acidity in the soil."
Mulder: "These are pink, what does that mean?"
Me: "Well Mulder, the more acidic the soil, the more pink the flower. If the soil were extremely base the flower would be blue."
Mulder: "When you perform the autopsy on the body, see if you notice any evidence of exposure to acid as a cause of death."
Me: "I'll do that."
