Default Consuming rose hips seeds

Hello,

I harvested my rose hips - they are around the twice of the size of a pea
and red. I'm just wondering whether I could cut it up and swallow it
together with the seeds?

Can the seeds be consumed as well or do they have a nasty side effect?

I don't know its purpose, but when you cut a rose hip in half, you'll
be looking at 3 things: the seeds; the shell (the outer edible part);
and hairy fibrous stuff that surrounds the seeds.

Ed Lucarini offered helpfully:
a helmet used for hunting big game.


With vinegar

Oh, please! It's a verb. As in, "Nothing pithes me off like a bad
punthter." Or a good one, for that matter.

Here's a question:

What in the heck is *this*?

http://mywebpages.comcast.net/ddweil2/WeirdGrowth.jpg

Notice that it's growing straight out of a Sweet Briar Rose stem (you
can see the short stem on the right). When this thing forms hips, it
looks *nothing* like this. Is this an alien life form or maybe some
sort of rose cancer? Or is this Invasion of the Rose Snatchers? Should
I be watching for pods in my bedroom?

Can anyone offer a pithy reply?

CIA implant. Strike that. Department of Homeland Security implant.

That is reasonably creepy. I'd cut it off and flush it (and send the
DHS mole after it).
