If you eat an entire pizza... and then a big old thing of ice cream... then you would get stomach and digestive problems lactose tolerant or not.

I've essentially forgotten the taste of milk 3 years after giving up on the stuff. I could switch over the lactose free stuff, but... it's just not the same.

Soy sauce isn't trying to imitate something it clearly is not, though.

I've heard of lactose free milk, tony, I hadn't thought to look for it hear locally because I'd be very leary of how it tastes compared to real milk. Is it any good?

They use some sort of bacteria that eats breaks down the lactose, but leave out the rest.
It's very sweet, but not pleasantly. I personally dislike it, but you can add it to your cereal and you won't miss anything... it actually makes it sweeter.

As far as soy milk and feminization...
rubish.

Soy is delicious and healthy. Asians, especially the poor, have been eating it for generations, and you don't see men with breasts and acting like women.

Some bodybuilders add soy to their diet to make their protein more complete. They should worry more about steroids than eating a few edame pods, or a piece of tofu in their soup.

It much more delicious than lactose free milk.

That's wrong. My family does it all the time, and my housemates and I had the exact same course last night, I was the only one with the stomach ache. I've been diagnosed with it, after going to several GPs complaining about stomach problems. I was once shuttled away to hospital in a stretcher because I had cereal that morning. Yes, cereal. That was how I found out I was lactose intolerant, when my bowels almost exploded.

I've essentially forgotten the taste of milk 3 years after giving up on the stuff. I could switch over the lactose free stuff, but... it's just not the same.

How can you dismiss it before even trying it?

Lactose free milk, depending on the brand is fantastic. Most of the taste difference I'd say is largely imagined. It's a little bit sweeter than ordinary milk, something to do with the process by which they eliminate the lactase. So yes, Proteas I would strongly recommend you try it. I went on cereal binges after I discovered it.

And Stafffighter, I suppose Soy sauce is the exception. A very good exception. Amazing condiment, but soy milk is still disgusting.

And consider that all peoples' bodies changes. You could have eaten a whole pizza and a bucket of ice cream before, but sometimes when we get older... things don't work out as well when we do those things.

When I wrestled, I could have done that... and not have had any sort of problems (or weight gain.) I'm not exactly older, but I know that I can't do that sort of thing anymore without problems.

I don't drink milk...it tastes wrong.
Even with chocolate in it, it's not something I want in my mouth, thank all the god's & goddesses I don't feel that way about Beer.

beer isn't just for breakfast any more, but it's a good time to have some ;)

That's what my complaint was; it tasted and felt more like a vanilla milkshake than actual milk. It just triggered something in my brain that went "something about this just doesn't seem right" and it wouldn't let me enjoy my damn bowl of granola. :-(

I've found I can do with most cheeses if it's a single serving. Normal milk is out of the question, pizza I can do a slice or two of, and I mourn ice cream. I need to get some of that lactose free bryers they make, and get some mix-ins like reeses peanut butter chips and the like.

As for more talking about all the dairy he eats..... asshole.

I think all my years on the internet are starting to effect me, mentally. A very pretty lady yesterday walked up to me at work asked, "Where is the white caulk?"

It took every ounce of self-restraint I had to keep from turning it into a dick joke and getting myself fired.

If soy doesn't make you effeminate, then how do you explain Thai LadyBoys?

That's right. YOU DON'T.

Proven fact: soy contains estrogen. Good for women in menopause. Bad enough to give men pause.

I played a rockabilly show to over a hundred people at a house party.
None of you care. Well, maybe you do. I don't know.

I cut Tommy Unknown's head at the show, and didn't even realize it until he came back later and said something. (No, not the "bleeding all over the place" kind of cutting heads. The crossroads kind) Apparently guys who can drink beer while playing with one hand are not common.

Also, I have HORRIBLE hair, the kind that only bees wax can help. I recently buzzed it all off, and now I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. If it was summer, I'd keep it buzzed, but the temperatures are not going to be cooperative this year. I can just feel it.

I... I don't even know what to say.

There is a defensive set of enhancements in City of Heroes now geared specifically for PvP, and is an Uber-Rare item to get. It's selling for 1.38 BILLION in-game cash.

I've been playing this game for the better part of a year and a half now, and I think I've barely scratched 200 million just in game cash I've generated on my own. Do these people have just that little to do besides sit in front of their computer screen all day long and...I mean... do you know how many characters I could enhance with that kind of cash...? BLAGH!!!

If it's anything like WoW there are gold mills. A lot of these guys probably go to a third party and purchase in-game money for real money.

Also there's that exponential growth through specialisation thing. Don't know the math behind it, but I'm sure you'll understand what I'm getting at. Maybe Elfer can help us out here.

On another note I'm also becoming really depressed because I'm beginning to wonder why I didn't do Political Science as a major, as I seem to spend endless hours studying it and obsessing over it. All these years and money studying and I only find out now I want to change when I'm halfway through. I hate my life.

Coming to think of it, I hate specializing period. Master of nothing studies.

now don't be like that !
If it's a hard cheese, especially if its a couple of years old (cheddar) you should have little problem with it, unless your severely lactose intolerant. It's the soft cheeses (which are really, really good by the way) like brie's, & fresh mozza that will really set you off & fresh riccotta probably keeps you close to the porcelain goddess.

Out of curiosity...Have you ever tried goat cheese(s) or lactose free havarti ?

It's an old joke. You walk up to someone who doesn't know about Lamb of God, and you talk about how it's your favorite christian band. Then they actually go LISTEN to Lamb of God, and their lyrics about, you know, raping people, and then watch t3h reaction.

I don't remember if you ever said what year you are in college, but I did my first 2 years at liberal arts and transferred into political science. So I was easily able to change things over halfway through. Hell, i found out that I wouldn't be able to graduate in the political science major so I switched again this year (the beginning of my senior year) to social science major with options of history and political science. I also decided sometime last Spring that I wanted to go to law school. Luckily there's no requirements for law school (like X number of years of chemistry, physics, math, etc). Either way, going to college from high school I wanted to do business. Then, when I was transferring I wanted to do criminal justice, and after I transferred it was political science, now it's law and somewhere along the line history got thrown into the mix.

You can change what you do whenever you damn well feel like. It may cost you a semester or two, but you can do it. And honestly, when you graduate it doesn't matter what your major was. Nobody is going to not hire you if you're perfectly qualified and have a 4 year degree because your degree was in political science and they wanted someone who has a 4 year in history. Hell, you don't even get close to that kind of stuff until you have a masters degree and that's for like literal history research fields...even then. All they care about is the lambskin, they don't care about how you got it (unless it was murder...they might not like that)

I've seen adds for that. Gagora.com specifically. I've never been to keen on the idea of doing it, because it involves an exchange of credit card/paypal info and giving access to your game account to a complete stranger. :-\

I'm just going to wait until I get a normal rare drop, sell it for a butt-load of cash, and then finish out my character that way. The normal ultra-rare recipes are going for anywhere from 50 mil to 300 mil a piece right now.

I'd say I'm moderatly lactose intolerant than I am severely. I can have some, but not a lot. But the issue is further complicated by the fact that I have a mold allergy, which makes harder cheeses a double whammy for me. Nothing like sneezing your head off AND getting an upset stomach.

Out of curiosity...Have you ever tried goat cheese(s) or lactose free havarti ?

Can't say I've had either of them. My town is on the outskirts of two metropolitan centers, so it's difficult for me to get anything I really want that's beyond a basic need without having to drive 25 miles out of the way. But there again, I could probably get either of those things at the local grocery store, I just haven't checked.

I believe I have just cause to be pissed off at Seven, Proteas, probably Skunky & any other American who has never bothered to mention ...
Mississippi Mud Pie ! ! !

Why were you keeping this a damn secrete ?
Why isn't that pie brought up in conversation more often ?
I know I've mentioned, at least once here, about having a desert I loved called 'death by chocolate' !
I'm not sure if I have mentioned my chocoholic tendancies....
Well Mississippi Mud Pie is better, if not 2x better than anything else I've ever had !
And until tonight I have never had any...although I believe I've heard the name before !
I have lost years of being able to eat this, my new favorite desert !

If your holding out on me about other ambrosia type chocolate deserts... just hand them over ;)

Oh, and mississippi mud pie? In the south, that's only considered the tip of the iceberg for the awesomeness of the south.

I've never had Mississippi mud pie is the thing, that's why I gave such an odd response. I've heard of it, but I can't say I've ever had it. :-\

I have had peanut butter pie, which basically tastes like a nice big frozen slice of deliciously rich reeses peanut butter, with a graham cracker crust. I've also had million dollar pie with maraschino cherries in it, my dad's favorite. I've also had a chess pie my grandmother used to make that involves 5 cups of brown sugar and a stick or two of butter... so damn sweet it would lock your jaws.

I also owe tony a debt of gratitude; I can't taste the difference between lactose free milk and regular milk. :-D

I've been to Louisianna & I've been to Texas & had awesome Bar-b-Q there, There's also a great blues & Bar-b-Q joint on Navy pier in Chicago... they have about 5 different styles of bar-b-Q going on there, unbelievabley good.
Not like out west Canadian Bar-b-Q...where it's landed on a red hot flame, you count to 10 or so flip it, do the same & then walk it over to your plate
But I was talking about pie.
But that pie was the best, some kind of chocolate confection/crumb crust, a multi chocolate and ...I don't know filling, but it was to die for, covered in some kind of whipped different choclate with lumps of sweet chocolate (I think there were a couple of kinds) & topped with drizelled chocolate caramel & other stuff...lumps & flakes . ! ! !

Just think of a chocolate explosion in your mouth & brain at the same time >>>>>>P O P<<<<<<<<
Calling it awesome, just isn't a good enough description.

When my store opened two years ago, they had all the christmas stuff on the shelves ready for sale... in the middle of September. I don't remember how early we put it out last year, but the Christmas set has already been out in our store now for the last few weeks, right next to the halloween stuff.

I don't care what religious holiday people like to celebrate, as long as they enjoy themselves...but (there's that damn word 'but' again)
I personally would perfer to see all the decorations, & christmas type stuff not come out until after Rememberence Day. All the commercialism, I personally find distasteful at a time we should remember those who've died in armed conflicts... so that Governments of today can continue to water down or outright remove our rights & freedoms. While they continue to over pay themselves & accept whatever lobbying funds & plum positions from huge business interests that they serve while in office !

Yes I'm bitter & all the Mud Pie in the world can't sweeten the mess governments continue to make.

Best part? Graduated from V Tech.

I'm going to hell for thinking that's funny.


Tis better to sit in silence and be presumed a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

I've always thought the commercialization of Christmas was a bit over the top, especially in light of how early we put out Christmas stuff where we work. But you raise an excellent point about how all this overshadows Veteran's day.

I helped one of my coworkers load out a hot water heater for a customer the other day, and while talking to the guy, I found out that he was a retired veteran of three wars; WW2, Korea, and Vietnam with 101st Airborne Division. I asked him what business he had being among the living... thanked him for his service to our country... and bid him God Bless. It made his day. :-D

Seven, why didn't you tell us your latest game was out? I saw it the other night in submissions, but didn't get a chance to play. Think I might go do that now.

I'm tits-deep in a final project. Might go to the lab tomorrow to use some software. Can't do it here since it's proprietary to the university. However, Windows Vista did give me a major advantage on one part of the project. With the Snipping Tool, I didn't have to waste time cropping screenshots or anything. I just took what I wanted, pasted it into my project, and boom, I was done.

Of course I'll need to go to the lab on the day I need to clean my apartment. Figures.
