Does everything have a use, perhaps?

Did you ever have the notion that just maybe, everything is useful. It probably is because God is good. Anyway, I was reading a blog called GAPsters and found a use for that 'useless' weed plantain.
Plantain can be used as an itch remedy, apparently! Not that I have tried it, but according to the blog, you chop up the leaves and mix with olive oil for an itch remedy. But it gets better. If you get bitten by a mosquito or stung by a bee, and need an instant remedy, you can chew the leaf up, spit it out, and apply like a poultice. Isn't that neat?
