Thing you might not know: "aspirin" isn't actually a generic name, burmt the original Bayer brand name; however after WW1 the international trademark was revoked as part of reparations.

Bayer still hold the trademark in Germany, where generics instead go by the actual generic name "Acetylsalicylsäure", or ASS.

what I'm saying is in order to help with mild headaches or mitigate the risk of stroke in old age, my people eat ASS

@theoutrider I chuckle each and every time I need a tablet for my headache.

@theoutrider brand recognition is funny, because people INSIST aspirin is a totally different drug than ASS
