chia seeds

so I have to ask, I know I will take crap for this, but I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried chia seeds. I have read the good, bad, and the ugly. what I am wondering about is if anyone has used them and what they experianced with the use of them?

    I bought a Don King chia pet one time and ate the seeds - it'll put some hair on your head

    I put a few tsp's in my morning smoothie. Great for energy. I hear they have some kind of "good fat" in them as well. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I have used them a bit, I will be honest that I don't necessarily notice a difference, though I know they are healthy for hydrating and healthy shtuff.

    You can make pudding out of them, etc as they act as a thickening agent (kind of)
