@BadAstronomer@twitter.com Lewis, Lancaster, Meredith, & Walker 1994 cover this briefly (below). I was looking for Lewthwaite, Sutton, & Triggs 1997. Most papers that cite the latter also cover the effects of frying after storage.

Tukemata (eyebrow) also means - fierce looks, frowning. He tukemata anō tō te taonga - Even wealth frowns. A proverb - being wealthy causes envy and a requirement (in traditional Māori thought) to be generous with that wealth.

Another brain teaser for artificial intelligence experts who want to sell me books:

If I was to search for a series of books, complete the sequence:

2. "Spider Man #2"
3. "Spider Man #3"
Next:
A. "Spider Man #4"
B. "Bat Man #23"
C. "Spider Bites, Illustrated"
