Sorry for the rather poor attribution, but I heard from a cow orker today that somewhere, somehow, Martha Stewart said that Roman Soldiers used to carry daffodil bulbs at all times, just in case they wanted to commit suicide.
Is this true?
Are daffodil bulbs that poisonous?
I suspect that the answer to both is “no.” After all, why would a Roman footsoldier wnat to commit suicide? I am sure his commanding officers would be more than happy to dispatch him, if required.
