Everything is Going to Kill Us - 08/28/14 02:46 PM

This may be an alternative Quirk thread, I don't know...but what everyday, perfectly ordinary and generally accepted things in life do you think are actually causing serious damage to people, or at least are capable of it?

And, why do you think that - what are your reasons? Why does it seem like it is just you out of 1,000 people that is concerned about this?

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 08/28/14 02:46 PM

Example:
When traveling, I refuse to get full-body screened with the millimeter-wave scanners because I think the technology is too new, and is untested, and they really have no idea what kinds of cancers/tumors they are triggering, and can’t know, for another 10 to 20 years. Plus, I see the process (and the nude pictures it produces) as a serious invasion of privacy and will never consent to it until/unless they make it mandatory. I also see the entire airport security process as a theatre meant to lull us into thinking we are safe, and I refuse to play along any more than I have to. Being patted down is a humiliating process and is another invasion of privacy, but currently you have to choose one or the other.

If it was jut a pat down it would not be so bad.
Dropping your drawers in public on a regular basis is not for me. But I am not sure I will opt for the nudie scanner to avoid one humiliation for the other.

High-fructose corn syrup. I don't even know why I think that. But I do. I sound like Seth Rogen's character in This is the End - somebody told me glutens are bad, so I won't eat them, but I can't explain why but probably calories are glutens, fat is a gluten, etc. I'm like that for high-fructose corn syrup. I don't know why it's bad but I'm sure it's a deadly killer so I avoid it. Regulary corn syrup, no prob.

I don't think flu shots are going to kill me, but i do think they're going to give me the flu (at least a mild case).....and since i haven't had the flu since i was 17, i'll just pass.

Hmm, never had to drop pants before. They stick their fingers inside my pants near the belt-area, and feel up and down the legs like a police pat-down. I'm sure it's a little more uncomfortable for women.

No flu shots, no way. I do think they will give me the flu, and doctors/medical industry lie about it by saying they will give you "flu-like symptoms," which hey, I don't care if that's flu or not, I don't want it.

Anti-bacterial soap. It is killing off all bacteria on your skin, not just harmful ones, and contributes to the creation of antibiotic-resistant super-bacteria. I use it anyway because I can seldom find (in stock, in the store) a good alternative.

I propose a rule for this thread, which is that you don't have to be "right" about your reasons, let's just share the reason, such as it is, without concern that someone is going to tell us that our reason is preposterous.

Pink meat of any kind (pink = undercooked), because it will try to kill you. It will put you in a serious state of tummy distress for hours on end. It may give you a disease or illness like salmonella or the beef version of that, whatever it is. Again, I'm not 100% clear on my reasons, I just know I don't want it and that it is a deadly killer.

Speaking of deadly killers: Margarine.

I remember an old David Letterman bit where he said for years, scientists have been telling us not to eat butter. Do not eat butter, because it is a deadly killer. Eat the margarine, margarine is good for you. Now, the latest news from scientists: Margarine is a deadly killer!

Internal organs as food.

Whatever diseases the animals may have suffered from, you may somehow (magically?) "catch" that my cooking and eating their internal organs. Some will figure I am wrong and that some organs are delicious, tasty treats. However, scientists of the future (500+ years from now?) will totally agree with me, and I'll be vindicated at that time.

Usually a flu shot is essentially a mild/small amount of the actual flu virus so that your body builds up it's immune system to fight the regular flu, so it's no surprise some people get sick from it. Most vaccines work that way.

I can see that point, but I'm not there yet, and there's gotta be some middle ground. Surely you're not putting margarine on your homemade undercooked calf liver sandwich then cleaning your hands with hand sanitizer just before eating it on the plane right after being full-body scanned?

If it comes out of an aerosol can and you can smell it (febreeze, bug spray, hair spray, you name it), it's killing you.

Smells are harmful. Your sense of smell works by molecules of the thing you are smelling entering your nose. If you pass by an open dumpster and it stinks (gross!), it is because some of that rotten food and trash has emitted particules/molecules which have floated through the air and entered your nose and brain, and you "sensed" what it was, you "smelled" it, only because you are physically in contact with it, in your nose. If you were not in physical contact with it, you could not smell it, because it would be impossible. If it stinks, get away from it.

Possibly. Whether your water is poison depends on a variety of factors, including:
-the types/natures of industry that are adding pollutants to it
-naturally present additives that the earth is adding to it (probably ok, but who knows)
-what kind of pipes you use to pull the water from the ground and deliver it to your house (are they food-safe? are they from before circa 1970?)
-in the city, what the city has added to it and what the city has failed to take out of the retreated sewage that they serve to residents as clean water
- oh, and what you and your neighbors are dumping on your lawns (fertilizer, bug poison, etc. - does not go away, and does not get completely filtered out by sand and rock, and ends up, years later, straight in the water source).

I second that, on no-cal drinks. All artificially "sugarfree" products (gum, drinks, colas, etc.) are deadly killers, containing chemical sweeteners that your body can neither digest nor entirely eliminate, contributing to obesity and a variety of physical disorders that we are only just beginning to understand.

I'm not going to argue whether you're right or wrong. I do agree with others who are alluding to the fact that you appear definitely paranoid tho. We all die someday and life's too short to waste it looking over my shoulder and worrying about everything. How about you start a thread about the good stuff in your life instead of another one about all the horrors?
Posted By: ComplianceDude

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 08/28/14 03:29 PM

All. City. Water.

The life cycle of city water: flush, down the drain, straight to the sewar treatment plant. Treat it to remove solid particles, treat it again, treat it again, treat it again. Add chemicals. Test it occasionally. Send it back up to the showers, faucets, and sinks.

I think people would not be able to drink it at all if they really focused on the fact that it was in a toilet a few weeks ago.

True. However, I don't think it is fear, in my case. It's a logical/rational decision based on evidence. Or in some cases, based on lack of evidence (e.g., lack of evidence that full-body scanners do not cause harm). I'm not "afraid" of margarine. I just don't want it because I have determined that avoiding it is in the best interest of my health and that of my family.

I think it all goes back in the drinking supply eventually, even if a river or reservoir is one of the phases of the process.

well, i certainly find that debatable. because to use your theory on water, as an example...

everything is made with water, all water comes at some point from the ground, that has been saturated with chemicals, so, in essence, we're all going to die if we ingest or use anything that was created by water...

i suppose since you no longer are eating or drinking, you will have the healthiest dead body ever...good luck with that. eek

Comply I have a friend with similar concerns to you. He also spends all day worrying about every content in every item of food consumed. The funny thing is, he is always sick with something.

I found that very odd. But last year I came across a landmark study involving antioxidants and free radicals which I will try to find for you. The study is considered to be a benchmark because the sample size was so large. The study concluded that people who had high antioxidants and did not expose themselves to free radicals were much sicker and died earlier than those that did not. They noticed that people who avoided free radicals had a condition in which their body did not produce their own antioxidants. Thus making them much more vulnerable. While people who had constant exposure to free radicals produced their own antioxidants without the need for external antioxidants. IE the body defended itself in the way it was designed to be defended.

Just this year my friend (the one I described above) found out from his doctor that he was about to become diabetic (at the age of 37).

Antibacterial anything - big mistake

Hand sanitizer - just plain icky stuff used only in extreme emergencies...like after gathering 'not-fully-cured-yet' wild boar skulls and stuff like that and no where to actually wash your hands. smirk

[I have two in the back of my truck right now...that are a lil stinky...so I have no fear of CYM stealing my truck!] grin

Overly cooked meat - particularly grilled overly cooked meat.

Fully cooked steak is just wrong no matter how you cook it.

I'm not scared of flu shots...they used killed virus...you CAN'T catch the flu from the vaccine. YOu just might feel a little 'off' from the anti-bodies kicking in gear...but I've not felt a darn thing in 3+ years other than a sore arm.

Well water - MUCH preferred over chlorinated city junk they call water.

Gatorade. Kids are gulping this stuff likes it's air. Don't parents realize that it's basically cool-aid but worse. They just keep buying it for their kids, who never sweat. Artificial flavors, artificial colors, articial sugars, artifical salts (I may have made that up). It's a scourge. There is a wonderfully bad movie I think called 'Idiocracy' or something like that, based on an energy drink ruling the world. So true. If Gatorade isn't killing the next generation, it's definitely making them fatter and dumber.

Absolutely. "Gatorade - It's What Plants Crave!" or something like that was the slogan in Idiocracy, a fantastic movie.

Not to mention: soda pop. My jaw drops every time I see a toddler toting his or her own personal 12-oz serving of pop.

Luckily I don't have to verify my reasons in this thread, so I'll say soda pop discolors teeth and burns microscopic holes in them, burns away layers of stomach and intestine, spikes blood sugar and causes diabetes and obesity, and the caffeine and sugar changes kids' brain waves in permanent and undesirable ways (just look at me - I used to drink 3 cokes a day in high school!).

7 Good Reasons To Start Eating Chia Seeds

1.Help weight loss. Chia seeds are popular for weight loss. They reduce food cravings by preventing some of the food that you eat from getting absorbed into your system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes them a great diet helper.
2.Feel fuller faster: They can also help your diet by making you feel full. This is because they absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a bulky gel.
3.Hydration for athletes: They are also great for athletes because the "chia gel" can hydrate the body.
4.Reduce your blood pressure: There's evidence to suggest they can reduce blood pressure.
5.Omega-3: They are the richest plant source of Omega-3 (the vital fats that protect against inflammation—such as arthritis—and heart disease). In fact, they contain more Omega-3 than salmon!
6.Benefits for diabetes: Because chia seeds slow down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrates into simple sugars, studies indicate they can control blood sugar. This leads scientists to believe chia seeds may have great benefits for diabetics.
7.They are easier to digest than flax seeds, and don't need to be ground up.

Microwave telecommunications. Um, beacuse it's microwaves? They are very common out west, rather than long distance phone lines with lines and poles, they just blast the calls through the air using microwaves.

I guess the pie-in-the-sky daydream is that if we changed our behavior, we could prolong everyone's lives. I don't just talk about this stuff for myself. When I say X, Y, or Z, is a deadly killer, I sincerely hope that people will, for instance, never buy another pack of sugarfree gum or can of tuna fish. Maybe 7 out of 10 readers laugh and move on, 1 out of 10 gets mad at me for saying it, 1 out of 10 start to think about it, and 1 out of 10 actually changes their behavior (e.g., their consumer/purchasing behavior) in a way that might improve things.

Meanwhile, if these posts somehow disturb you or stress you out or bother you, you're under no obligation to read them.

And of course, these posts are fun for and beneficial to me.

Both, of course. I am sincere that I think this stuff is bad for us. I also find it fun to discuss, because I enjoy these topics and sometimes the replies/responses people post have me laughing out loud. And it's beneficial to me too, and might change my behavior as follows: while I'm certainly not going to be chewing any sugarfree plastic today (all gum is made from plastic components), I might think twice before bringing these issues up for discussion in a live, face-to-face social environment, given the unexpected amount of rancor and negative reactions some of my posts have elicited.

Okay, in re-reading some of CYM's posts, I think I understand somewhat from where the poster is coming. We've altered our food and personal products to include potentially toxic compounds. I do agree on principle that moving back to a more natural product base would potentially be healthier for humans and the planet, the conveniences of modern life might make it a difficult transition. That said:

*I use soap nuts in my laundry
*I use wool balls in the dryer
*I use naturally-derived dish soap
*I use naturally-derived shampoo and body wash
*I avoid products with added fragrances

It's a small step.

If I avoid bad things and food with possible contaminants I will live the exact same age as I would have had I not avoided them. If I had a child I would not feed the child organic meat. Why? Because it would not make him/her live longer. But it would ensure that the new body would not have trace amounts of hormones that would cause him to grow as much as the other kids. IE, this kid would end up to likely be smaller.

Life - Not one of us will get out of it alive.

My 104 year old grandma loved her beer.
My 92 year old great-aunt just jumped out of a plane.
My 72 year old late grandmother walked 3 miles every single morning and still died of Alzheimer's.

And my daughter has a CT scan every 2 years to make sure that the cancer hasn't come back or that the portal vein clotted (which it has). Both of which will kill her too.

I try to eat clean, work-out more, and live every day to the fullest. Which means giving my worries to a higher power. You're darn right, everything is going to kill us. But I've cheated death once already, and I know it will find me again in due time.

There's a difference between "trying to change people's behavior" and fear mongering. Maybe ask yourself which you are doing? You're free to yell "Fire!" from your porch all you like, but in a crowded theater (or on the internet), perhaps it's a teensy bit irresponsible to go shouting about things that might kill you when you have zero evidence to back it up.

Two answers...
A. Ah. Please allow me to clarify the purpose and motivation of this thread. I wanted to find out what things people think are doing us harm/damage (or potentially doing so), and why they think that -- regardless of whether or not they are right or think that they are right about it. Asking for a citation of any stated reason is outside the scope of this thread and its safe harbor rules on reasons not needing to be scientific, verifiable, or citable. It's just about what a given poster, out of 1,000 other people, doesn't want or avoids, and why. They don't have to convince me, or anyone else, that their reasons are valid. smile

B. "The radiation dose from a full-body CT scan is comparable to the doses received by some of the atomic-bomb survivors from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, where there is clear evidence of increased cancer risk." http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/08/040831090104.htm
That's 10-year-old news and I'm sure any competent Googler could find a dozen articles that "discredit" my reason. I don't care about that. See answer A above.

This...because it bears repeating. You say you're looking to see what others think. Yet your posts read as facts not as 'I think this is bad because....' And you're not willing to post citations to back up your 'facts'. This board and this thread are more akin to a theater than a porch. jmho

along this line, saw an article this weekend that said for years we told people not to eat butter and sugar, and now that we are 20+ years down this path, realize that eating sugar and butter is much better for you than the fake alternatives...

know anyone who has been vegetarian for more than 10 years? look how their skin is a leathery condition, and they look ill. lack of protien and other vitamins that veggies and pills can't provide. i still drink whole milk, forget that 2% stuff. i eat ice cream. i love white bread (although i also love wheat bread). I eat crunchy peanut butter. i spread butter on saltine crackers. i make kool-aid with sugar, never the sugar free.

but as with all things eaten, any of it is done in moderation (except for Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia, if i open a pint of that stuff, i don't stop until it is gone). and exercise. and drink plenty of water...

in the end, i'll still die...

When I was a kid, everyone in my family put butter on saltines. We put butter on everything. If I was hungry before dinner, Mom would give me a spoonful of butter and sugar. Yes, I was a (somewhat) overweight kid.

Unsalted butter and sugar all the way! No margarine and no artificial sweeteners here. Yuck!

If I can't have butter and sugar then I'll do without rather than slather on any fake butter stuff or consume any chemical sweeteners.

I don't go overboard on either butter or sugar but add a little of each to life.

Another butter/saltine cracker eater here from way back.

Did anyone ever eat saltines with mayonnaise on them? Just recently, my wife introduced me to this treat she says she ate as a kid. Pretty good stuff, that mayonnaise on saltine crackers! Just will not work if one substitutes Miracle Whip for the mayonnaise either.

"Know anyone who has been vegetarian for more than 10 years? Look how their skin is a leathery condition, and they look ill. lack of protein and other vitamins that veggies and pills can't provide."

Yep, you're absolutely correct on the "look." I grew up near an entire small Texas town that, for religious reasons, embraced the "healthful benefits" of a vegetarian diet. The residents stood out like sore thumbs due to their uniformly pasty-faced appearance. They died as readily as the rest of the human population does, and of the same ol' maladies too.

The humorous part of the practice was their "soy-steaks, vegi-burgers, and "bacon-like slices" along with all the other meat substitutes found in their local supermarket. Almost made light of the Biblical admonition to "avoid the very appearance of evil" the way the vegi-meat products were advertised.

Unnecessary medical tests can kill, as they can lead to biopsies and further tests (and stress/worry/thoughts of mortality) and possibly surgery, and this is sometimes all done to correct something that would have been a total non-issue if the person had never done the initial test in the first place. And there are false-positives and inconclusive results that lead to removing benign tissues, without properly educating the patient on the risks of complications. A big part of medicine is guesswork. Medicine is big business and informing you of your options is not their job - it's yours.

At age 85 my grandfather flat-out refused to take a stress test (running on a treadmill) because, well, he was 85! Good for him.

I distrust a few of the recommended preventive tests because the medical industry gives them to millions and millions of people for years, THEN determines that the risk of harm outweighs the benefits, in some cases.

Now this, I can certainly see. I had a procedure a couple years ago that I have to have a follow up each year to ensure there is no reoccurence, which costs me a couple/few thousand each year. Had they just dealt with the issue I came in for, they would not have ever identified that issue. It's a tough call, cause so many times they find something that does need addressed and many times it ends up saving lives, so this is not just black and white.

Intentional attempts to contact aliens (METI and SETI projects), because contact with any alien starship-having civilization may potentially/eventually result in our extermination. I mean, haven’t they seen Starship Troopers, or Independence Day?

Even without the intentional efforts, there's a chance of unintentionally making contact due to the volume of radio and TV signals we are constantly transmitting everywhere, including off-world, and which can continue on for long distances into space. We have no way of knowing how any other world would react to our friendly videos of cartoon rabbits or smiley faces or beautiful trees or peace signs or red hearts, much less what they would make of our horror movies or war movies or alien invasion movies.

This reminded me of the chapter on Baynes theorem and false-positives in Nate Silvers book. And the example using mammograms for women under 40:

A woman in her 40's has about a 1.4% chance of getting breast cancer.

If a woman does NOT have cancer, a mammogram will incorrectly say she does (false-positive) about 10% of the time. If she does have cancer it will detect it about 75% of the time.

Given those numbers, if a woman under 40 has a positive mammogram, what are the odds she actually has cancer?

Well, even with the positive mammogram, the odds are only about 10 percent.

http://chemistry.about.com/od/foodchemistryfaqs/f/bottled-water-shelf-life.htm

Answer: Although bottled water has an expiration date, it doesn't actually go bad. Why is there an expiration date on a product that doesn't go bad? This is because New Jersey requires all food and beverages, including water, to carry an expiration date on its packaging. It doesn't matter if you don't live in New Jersey... your water may carry an expiration date anyway to make it easier to standardize packaging. Some bottled water only carries its bottling date or a 'best by' date. These dates are helpful because the flavor of the water will change over time as it absorbs chemicals from its packaging. The flavor will not necessarily be bad, but it may be noticeable.

It is the fault of a certain person in NJ

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 09/03/14 09:37 PM

:Surprises no one by having concerns about refilled water bottles:

Refilled plastic water bottles are deadly killers, because staph and strep throat that you catch from yourself (bacteria thrive and multiply in the reused water bottle...what started as a couple of bad guys in your mouth end up as a real mosh pit in that 24-hour-old water bottle).

Health experts from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) say refilling plastic water or soda bottles without thoroughly washing them could increase one's chances of contracting staph infections, strep throat, meningitis, and other illnesses. http://www.worldissues360.com/index.php/...and-bags-56534/
Posted By: ComplianceDude

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 09/03/14 09:38 PM

Refilled plastic water bottles are deadly killers, because heat is only one thing that causes the chemicals to leach into the drink. Normal wear and tear, the washing process, the aging process, any damage to the plastic – all of this can cause the chemicals to leach, if in fact you for some reason believe that no chemicals are leaching during your first drink. The disposable ones seem pretty easy to damage, as they are now made so cheaply and thinly that they crinkle every time they are lifted) – and since all types of damage, not just heat, can trigger the release of chemicals, reusing them seems risky.

By the way, the big water bottles delivered by a truck are certainly not new and have been exposed to heat, sunlight, and lots of wear and tear.

Non-stick cookware, because its molecular structure changes and toxic gases are released when cooking at normal temperatures (say, medium heat, for just a few minutes). Though these links don’t support it, my other (possibly preposterous) reason is that I think that when the molecular structure is so slippery and is heated up, the pan begins to exchange atoms with my eggs, and I don’t want to eat the pan’s plastic-based coating.

If anyone saw my "ice water challenge" the Spring in this article is just up river and is a place I grew up swimming at (and rasing much cain).

In a rural North Florida town where the water tower bears the motto ”Tiny but Proud,” residents have a big secret: They give the cold, clear spring water that bubbles up from the aquifer below their soil to the nation’s largest bottled water company — for free. Every day, Nestle Waters of North America sucks up an estimated 500,000 gallons from Madison Blue Springs, a limestone basin one mile north of town. It pipes the 70-degree water to its massive bottling plant and distribution center, fills 102,000 plastic containers an hour, pastes on Deer Park or Zephyrhills labels, boxes it up and ships half of it out of state. –

The cost to the company for the water: a one-time $150 local water permit. Like 22 other bottled water companies in Florida, including giants Coca Cola and Pepsi Co., Nestle’s profit is 10 to 100 times the cost of each bottle. And the payment to Florida? Not a dime.

Outside the rural north Florida town of Lee, “every day, Nestle Waters of North America sucks up an estimated 500,000 gallons from Madison Blue Springs,” the paper says. You probably know it as Deer Park. –

Only recently I put a sediment filter on because I get tons of clay and iron coming through it and was tired of washing my clothes in this unpredicable water 'quality' much less it clogging my filter screens on appliances and fixtures. The water can be pure orange at times and tastes like rust from all the iron. The filter makes it taste wonderful tho! smile

I probably also am guilty of cleaning stalls in the barn and eating/drinking without thinking to wash my hands. I am rarely sick. I'm pretty sure this practice contributes largely to that fact. cool

i think Ozarka actually does use a spring...but if you read the fine print on bottled water, many have switched to "municipal water supply" as the source even while touting themselves as spring water...i don't believe the FDA has gotten up to speed on changing this, but has brought it up as posisbly deceptive.

Milk worse than smoking?

Dear

Did you know that according to a study from an esteemed medical school, some types of milk are now connected to cancer… and could cause as much damage to your health as smoking four packs of cigarettes a day?

Think about that…
http://www.vatpasture.com/immediate/release/CDC/update_635753.html
Smoking four packs a day is almost certain to lead to an early death….but according to the latest research, a certain type of milk could be even worse.

Yet I’d bet not one in 1,000 people knows what type of milk it is.

There’s a good chance this milk may be in your fridge right now.

It was in mine, too. Until I came across the research you’re about to see.

Barbs,

Warren worked at Harvard and obtained her position because Harvard needed minority employees. Thus it was very difficult to fire her, because Harvard had been criticized for its lack of diversity. The only problem is, she just claimed to be a minority but was actually 100% white. This has been pretty well proven at this point. Then she ran for office in Massachusetts again as a Native American person. There has been a dispute over whether she received preferential treatment because of this. Her colleagues claim she did not, however Harvard made a big deal about their new "minority" instructor.

Even after it has been proven she was not Native American and the person she claimed to be native in her family was not native, she went on to claim that she is native in subsequent interviews.

Yet amazingly, the people of Massachusetts saw fit to elect her to office.

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 09/05/14 10:50 AM

in case you need a citiation

http://elizabethwarren.com/elizabeth


Elizabeth has been a law professor at Harvard for nearly 20 years and has written nine books, including two national best-sellers, and more than a hundred articles. National Law Journal named her one of the Most Influential Lawyers of the Decade, and she has been honored by the Massachusetts Women’s Bar Association with the Lelia J. Robinson Award.

And about that best selling book

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) repeats her false claims of Native American ancestry in her new book, A Fighting Chance, which is scheduled for release next Tuesday.

"As a kid, I had learned about my Native American background the same way every kid learns about who they are: from family," Senator Warren writes in an excerpt published Wednesday in the Boston Globe.

Senator Warren then repeats a line she used often in her 2012 Senate campaign, memorialized in a September 2012 television commercial, writing "I never questioned my family’s stories or asked my parents for proof or documentation. What kid would?"

"Knowing who you are is one thing, and proving who you are is another," Warren writes.

In 2012 Breitbart News exhaustively documented the facts surrounding Senator Warren's claims of Native American ancestry and demonstrated that no credible evidence exists to support those claims. But lack of genealogical evidence has never stopped Senator Warren from boldly asserting as fact something which is flatly not true.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/...try-in-New-Book

and the other book

http://legalinsurrection.com/2012/05/did-elizabeth-warren-plagiarize-her-fake-cherokee-recipes/

Mrs. Warren’s 1984 recipe for Cold Omelets with Crab Meat contains all four of the ingredients listed in Mr. Franey’s 1979 recipe in the exact same portion but lists five additional ingredients. More significantly, her instructions are virtually a word for word copy of Mr. Franey’s instructions from this 1979 article.

Barbs,

I think it can be interpreted two ways. I agree with both your way and Ed's way. When I saw "the place that brought us" I thought more about where Warren earned her claim to fame. Certainly a Harvard professor garners a lot of weight more than someone with a masters from Houston. I guess if you were going to say she "came from" anywhere it would not even be Houston. You could argue it was George Washington University. But no one could make the argument that she "was brought by" the Native Americans.

Seed sellers prohibiting the saving and planting of seeds and enforcing it with litigation. Seed sellers making sure their plants can't germinate more than once.

AP quoted government spokeswoman Rosario Murillo as saying they've determined it was a "relatively small" meteorite that "appears to have come off an asteroid that was passing close to Earth [too close to Earth - CYM]."

NASA [suspiciously-CYM] hasn't confirmed a link between the meteorite and the asteroid. The newly discovered asteroid [Oh, newly discovered? Thanks for the heads up, NASA! It already hit us.-CYM], called 2014 RC, was expected to pass safely [guess it depends on your definition of safely, then-CYM] above the Earth on Sunday, NASA said, at a distance of about 25,000 miles (40,000 kilometers) -- just one-tenth the distance from the center of Earth to the moon.

When we're on vacation, I like to get up and run in the morning. I saw a video the other day of a crocodile crossing the sidewalk I run on, and going across the street to the golf course. Here's the video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=petqA5dKsjU

That made me do other searching, and I find there are crocs all around the hotel - on the beach, by the boats in the marina, and all over the golf course. One couple was attacked a few years ago, when they wandered onto the course at night for a little romance.

False. Unfortunately, it's just that I remember too much of what I read and hear, at least as it concerns this subject matter. If, one time in 1995, I read that something was a deadly killer, I never forgot it. These things have accumulated to the point where I now know, realize, and accept that indeed, Everything Is Going to Kill Us.

I won't use the pad because of all the germs that build up from everyone who doesn't remember their fob. And when the lock clicks open, I push on the door so I don't have to touch the handle either.

Back when our eldest was a toddler, my wife was making a return at a customer service counter in the local K-Mart, all involved with the exchange then looking down to find our son standing up in the cart, enthusiastically licking back and forth along the edge of the counter, just about where the arm pits of most patrons would rest while conducting business. Considering all the sleeveless halter tops, wife-beater shirts and such that even back then were seen in the place in summertime, my wife said she almost upchucked on the spot.

He survived it in fine style to grow up to be a pretty fine fellow, now 32 years old.

Reminds me of the young Texan, John Wesley Hardin. He is buried in El Paso and was said to have killed 30 men. Bob Dylan immortalized him in song:

John Wesley Harding was a friend to the poor
He traveled with a gun in every hand
All along the countryside, he opened many a door
But he was never known to hurt an honest man

Twas down in Chaney County, a time they talk about
With his lady by his side, he took a stand
And soon the situation there was all but straightened out
For he was always known to lend a helping hand.

All across the telegraph, his name it did resound
But no charge held against him could be proved
And there was no man around who could track or chain him down
He was never known to make a foolish move.


But a lawman shot him in the back as he was rolling dice at a downtown saloon.

I'm afraid that Dylan may have romanticized Mr. Hardin's life a bit. I'm pretty sure that some of his exploits were a little over reported, but I dont think he was a real warm and fuzzy kinda guy. Once out of prison, he did become an attorney. Not real successful, but an attorney nonetheless. His busniness cards had bullet holes in them. And he was shot and killed.

Close. My logic is that public Purell dispenser plungers are about as clean as your average ATM keypad or public restroom seat. I've seen some people get a pump of Purell to clean their hands before touching something public - I think that is what is intended - but many others wait until after they've touched everything then only use the Purell afterwards, on their way out, thus somewhat protecting themselves but no one else. Everyone who first gets dirty hands and then runs to the public Purell is leaving it filthy for the rest of us.

My rule is I don't use public Purell unless someone I'm with (and who apparently knows me pretty well) gets an extra large squirt, then offers me their hand, so that I can get a dab directly from their hand. I usually pause to consider their fingers' cleanliness, running through a mental checklist of where we've been that day, and what I've seen their hands touching, and how long it has been since the last time they were known to be washed with soap and water, and then I accept a dab in appoximately 20% of cases it is offered.

Besides, washing your hands is, to a large extent, about using friction to dislodge germs and microbes while the soap lubricates them and your skin to make them slippery so the (preferably very hot) water can literally wash them off (I got that from a hospital staff hand washing notice which I read about 4 years ago). None of that process happens with hand sanitizer.

I've got one that will give you the heebee-jeebees (it kinda grosses me out too).

My friend's kids leave their toothbrushes laying on the sink and the heads are next to the faucet handles. That way, people's hands drip on them whenever they turn the faucets off. Sure, presumably the person's hands are dripping clean water, but still, eww. eek

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 09/12/14 01:48 PM

I read something about a study that indicated even in a medicine cabinet, the exposure rate was nearly the same as if sitting on the counter. So unless you put your toothbrushes in another room, you're probably just as bad off.

I should search for the source, but meh, it's more fun to watch people worry and try to figure out if they should believe me or not.

I'm pretty sure the immune system is ineffective against toxic chemicals, lead, radiation, etc. For example...

"Benzene works by causing cells not to work correctly. For example, it can cause bone marrow not to produce enough red blood cells, which can lead to anemia. Also, it can damage the immune system by changing blood levels of antibodies and causing the loss of white blood cells." http://www.bt.cdc.gov/agent/benzene/basics/facts.asp
Posted By: edAudit

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 09/12/14 03:02 PM

from the article

Benzene evaporates into the air very quickly. Its vapor is heavier than air and may sink into low-lying areas.

So it would no longer be on the doorknob but possibly on his shoes (shoes can kill you)

Oh, I don't know. In the shooting sports hobby, I've probably poured a couple tons of lead down the bores of the firearms over ... say 40+ years. Since I was a kid anyway. Breathed the airborne residue from the "gun smoke." Handled lead bullets, cast my own lead bullets, hand loaded lead bullets and shot while eating and drinking at the loading bench, cleaned bores of guns after shooting lead bullets getting lead-laced cleaning solvents all over my hands plus breathing the solvents' vapors. Once accidentally swallowed a lead .177 pellet when I was 12 years old.

It ain't hurt me yet. Of course there's this prehensile tail that has formed at the base of my spine over the past few years ...

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 09/12/14 05:46 PM

By the way, one thing has become increasingly clear as we go on: Yes, everything wants us dead – even some health foods and sometimes the safer alternatives to known toxic substances. Yes, drinking water from one’s own hands would appear to be the only solution, and only from a clear stream and only upstream from all settlements…so that’s not much of an option. Yes, cooking food destroys many of its nutrients, but eating raw meat is a known deadly killer, so what can you do? Cow’s milk, another a deadly killer. It’s common replacement: soy milk, also a deadly killer.

The world is full of things that want to destroy our bodies. But I don’t think that means that our only choice is to give up, decide to ignore it all, and leave it for future generations to clean up. Tiny steps are all I can do. For instance, I don’t buy gum anymore. I love gum. But I won’t chew it now that I know what it’s really made of. From my perspective, that doesn’t demonstrate paranoia, but rather, good common sense. Hopefully my decision will affect my kids’ decisions, and on down through the successive generations. In my case, I may be a little unique - I have maybe 100 decisions like the one I made about gum. And you're going to get the privilege of hearing about ALL OF THEM. laugh

Haven't been paying much attention to this issue lately; is there evidence that Sea World is abusing animals, or is it just that they are kept in captivity and that whole deal, or something else?

I don't really know. According to Blackfish the documentary, in the "live animal show" industry:

-The abuse starts when they capture the animals. Killer whales stay in the same social group for years, sometimes their whole lives, and they are relentlessly pursued so that they can be forcibly removed from that group, and they know it has happened and so does their mother and the rest of the group.

-Almost any captivity is abuse. They are confined to very tight quarters, particularly at night when the tourists can't see them. They go into a small steel box, too small to even turn around in, and are kept in total darkness all night. They live to perform, for applause and a mouthful of fish.

-Rebellious animals are separated from the others and they gradually go mad from loneliness and boredom. They're supposedly very intelligent and possibly more emotionally intelligent than humans. (I'd say their attempts to murder their trainers are possibly just an attempt to communicate that something is seriously wrong with their lives in captivity.)

"SeaWorld has been facing strong opposition for some time from animal rights activists like PETA and others, which not long ago culminated in a controversial and strongly anti-SeaWorld documentary titled Blackfish in July of 2013. In the film, the park is criticized for practices and incidents, including trainer and audience safety accidents, and the use of an Orca that killed a trainer." http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Calif...nvestor-Lawsuit

Aerosol cooking spray, because contains propellant, a neurotoxin. Mmm, nothing else gives home-cooked food the flavor of rocket fuel quite like a little blast of cooking spray on the nonstick pan.

“Similarly, cooking spray, which is made from various types of oils combined with lecithin (an emulsifier), may use nitrous oxide as a propellant; other propellants used in cooking spray include food-grade alcohol and propane.”

Sponge in the microwave?

1. Hmm, maybe. Just wouldn't try it with a dry sponge, as it can smoke and catch fire. We can all agree, fire is a deadly killer.
2. Wouldn't mike a sponge that has metal fibers, as it will catch fire.
3. Miking a sponge that has chemical detergents and cleaners soaked into it, will turn those liquids into toxic gas, which will be released into the kitchen when you open the mike's door (source - Consumer Reports). Mmm, nothing's quite like the smell of aerosolized carcinogens in the morning!
4. Anyway, microwaves are deadly killers (source - common knowledge, I assume).

Hmm, that's like asking if I know rain causes moisture. laugh I assume it was a rhetorical question.

In this link, I got a good chuckle when I read the old standy answer from the wireless industry, If you're worried about brain tumors, just use a hands-free set! because then you just wear the phone on your hip and can expose internal organs and certain other cherished areas to the waves, rather than just your brain. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/cell-phone-tumor-link-found/

Soon as people stop getting cell-phone shaped tumors on the side of their head that they most often use to talk on the phone, then I'll admit there is no evidence.

"After evaluating several studies on the possibility of a connection between cellphones and glioma and a noncancerous brain tumor known as acoustic neuroma, members of the International Agency for Research on Cancer — part of the World Health Organization — agreed that there's limited evidence that cellphone radiation is a cancer-causing agent (carcinogenic). As a result, the group classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to people."http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-living...er/faq-20057798

Yes, the New England Journal of Medicine reported (remember the article is dated 1989) that the wafers made for Roman Catholic and Anglican use in England were tested and found to have a high amount of gluten. At the time, the British Bishops Council refused to allow for gluten-free Hosts.

I know that now, at least in NY, gluten-free Hosts are allowed. People tell the priest beforehand and he keeps a gluten free host aside for that person.

Ceramics may be deadly killers, particularly very old ones (as in, handed down from grandma) because cadmium, barium, lead, and worse things may have been used in their manufacture. I (stupidly) trust new ceramics (white in color) bought in the U.S. even when they are made in China. The ones I don’t trust are typically sold in shops specializing in imported goods, and have strange colors (red, yellow, orange, blue) in or on the ceramic plate or bowl. I also don’t trust thick resin-like glazes on ceramics, or ceramics that have lots of lines (crazing) and dots visible in and under the glaze.

But gluten only increases the risk of cancer in people who have celiac disease or who are gluten intolerant, right? So for them, eating gluten-containing wafers would have the same (or less) effect as eating wheat bread, graham crackers, oatmeal or certain pastas - anything with gluten, really.

"There is no connection between gluten and risk of most cancers. The exception is intestinal cancer, and even then, gluten only increases risk if a person has celiac disease, or true gluten intolerance." https://www.oncologynutrition.org/erfc/hot-topics/does-gluten-cause-cancer/

So, food containers…let’s see, we’ve covered ceramics, plastic, ooh, I know – stainless steel is (or can be) a Deadly Killer. Clearly eating out of one's hands (and cooking on...a wooden stick, I guess??) is the only option.

Stainless steel cookware is made from a metal alloy consisting of mostly iron and chromium along with differing percentages of molybdenum, nickel, titanium, copper and vanadium. But even stainless steel allows other metals to leach into the foods. The principal elements in stainless that have negative effects on our health are iron, chromium and nickel….There are many grades of stainless steel. Regular stainless steel cookware is made from different alloys including scrap metal. “Green” products made from “recycled” stainless steels can be radio-active and go into common household products undetected. http://conscious-cook.com/hidden-dangers/

??? it's the same guy. He got on a plane and flew here to visit family.

Unless it came out that another member of his family got it (which i wouldn't be surprised if it happens). In that case, they probably got it from the original dude who was visiting them.

Ebola's only contagious once symptoms present. He (and everyone else) was checked before boarding the plane. no fever or anything. So, the other flight passengers should be safe.

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 10/01/14 08:23 PM

because he was in close contact with the first patient? having a situation under control doens't necessarily mean no one else will get the virus. Because some have already been exposed. But the fact that this 2nd guy was being observed/isolated when the symptoms started is a good sign for having it under control. or at least much better than if it had developed unsupervised.

The CDC would have isolated him since he was family/right there next to the first victim. So this timeline:

1st victim shows up

CDC figures out who all 1st victim had contact with. Isolates & watches them.

2nd victim is included in this group.

2nd victim starts to show symptoms.

So, it's really sad and bad news for the second victim. But since he was already quarantined when the symptoms started (when he became contagious) then there are no new people exposed.

Except the phlebotomists, and doctors, and nurses, and people that clean the rooms in the hospitals, and people that deliver the hospital food... having LOADS of experience with the ID (infections diseases) department at a hospital where Rota-virus and C-Diff spread on a transplant floor, I have my doubts of their "control."

2nd victim is included in this group.

2nd victim starts to show symptoms.

So, it's really sad and bad news for the second victim. But since he was already quarantined when the symptoms started (when he became contagious) then there are no new people exposed.


There is no word on when the second person was found to have symptoms it or that they were isolated prior to just the children were isolated,

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 10/02/14 06:59 PM

This sucks:

HOUSTON, Texas -- A Dallas paramedic claimed he drove the ambulance that the US Ebola patient was transported in and that he was not contacted by anyone about the potential exposure. He claims he drove the ambulance sometime after the patient was transported. The Dallas Fire Department left the ambulance that transported Ebola patient Thomas Duncan to the hospital in service for at least 48 hours before putting it in quarantine on Wednesday. The ambulance was exposed to the Ebola virus when Duncan was transported on September 28th.

“Three days after the fact,” an exasperated Aklinski stated, “I had to demand exposure testing and they are reporting following up with all the people in the ambulance??? Bull [censored]!!! They haven’t even followed up with the ten firefighters that were on duty Sunday.”

Aklinski went further in explaining the frustration he and most likely, other firefighters, are feeling. “How do you not test and contact the firefighters at the station on Sunday!!! Only the two medics and the intern on the ambulance? I was freaking in that ambulance hours later driving it!!! No one bothered to contact me about it?!!!”

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 10/10/14 04:36 PM

Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol.
Should I be concerned about Dihydrogen Monoxide?
Yes, you should be concerned about DHMO! Although the U.S. Government and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) do not classify Dihydrogen Monoxide as a toxic or carcinogenic substance (as it does with better known chemicals such as hydrochloric acid and benzene), DHMO is a constituent of many known toxic substances, diseases and disease-causing agents, environmental hazards and can even be lethal to humans in quantities as small as a thimbleful.

Is it true that ingesting DHMO can improve my athletic performance? YES!

One technique commonly used by endurance athletes in sports such as distance running and cycling is to take a large amount of DHMO immediately prior to a race. This is known within racing circles to dramatically improve performance.

Sports-medicine physicians warn that ingesting too much Dihydrogen Monoxide can lead to complications and unwanted side-effects, but do acknowledge the link to improved performance. DHMO is not currently considered a banned substance, so post-race urine tests do not detect elevated or abnormal levels of DHMO.

For more information about this deadly dangerous substance see:

http://www.dhmo.org/facts.html

Whatever you do, please be really really careful around this dangerous liquid. laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh

You see flopping in any sport that has penalties for a variey of fouls. What you don't seem to see in other sports is the grimacing in extreme agony. Even Joe Theisman didn't do that with his leg bone protruding through his leg.

The training on how to properly suit up as a health care worker is weak in some areas. Time has a Liberian, someone in the health industry I think, saying that their training is just a PowerPoint presentation.

It was also reported - I think it was last week's Time - how a US reporter suited up to cover the story, and the suiting up and then changing out of it takes 10 minutes each way and she had to suit up 5 times a day. She worried every time she pulled off her goggles, thinking the sweat was going to drip into her eyes. She worried about brushing up against a wall or anything else.

There's always the chance for error, for not using enough tape between the sleeves and the gloves, for a rip in the material, etc. It should not be too suprising that regardless of training and experience, some fully-suited up people are being infected. The hospitals will say the workers didn't follow procedures, rather than addressing whether the procedures are adequate.

We have a generator if power goes out and enough fuel for a few days and we use our own well for water. And then I have enough ammo and guns, swat gear, for a small army. Bring on the apocalypse.

Us too! Currently researching ways to store enough fuel for about 2 weeks. Hubby's into prepping but not like the weirdos on TV. More like practical items that are easy to keep that could get us through a couple weeks without power or trips to the grocery store. I'm reluctant but I suppose if the apocalypse crossed the Red River I'll be grateful!

I never thought too much about prepping as far as food goes but my wife is into that with her typical organizational flair. I'd always figured we'd bug out to the old family place which is large acreage on a lake. Good thing she's got the food/meds covered as we'd have been fishing from limb lines and likely eating armadillos, prickly pear and mesquite beans if it'd been left up to me.

Based on my hobby of shooting sports I can also do the whole small army thing.

There is some seriously tricky double-talk there: “I think there are two different parts of that equation,” he continued. “The first is, if you’re a member of the traveling public and are healthy, should you be worried that you might have gotten it by sitting next to someone? And the answer is no." “Second, if you are sick and you may have Ebola, should you get on a bus? And the answer to that is also no. You might become ill, you might have a problem that exposes someone around you,” he said."

All that first part says to me is...
- The concepts of having Ebola and being "healthy" are mutually exclusive. So he's saying something basic and profound and trying to make it sound like advice: If you are healthy, you don't have it. Duh.
- If you are healthy, then you shouldn't be worried about whether you have it. If you had it, you wouldn't be healthy. So if you don't have it, you are hereby requested not to worry.

Originally Posted By: raitchjay

I recognize that the posts are amusing to some. To me, these are actual hazards. We are constantly being warned from all sides, on product labels and in magazines and on TV, about the deadly dangers lurking in our pantries and on our streets and in our air and water...and yet, we're still here. The warnings are so common that the concept of "watching out" for bad things has become absurd. We are supposed to use caution with and/or be concerned about nearly everything we ever do, taste, touch, feel, or see.

I recognize the impossibility of avoiding all bad stuff, and yet, because of when, where, and who I am, for me this has all become a part of my personality. My generation has been made to feel a need to have a layer of antibacterial soaps and plastic barriers between us and the rest of the world.

The onslaught of nonstop warnings have had the seemingly permanent effect of making me avoid touching doorknobs, avoid eating non-stick spray, avoid handling glowsticks, avoid chewing gum, etc. There are over 100 ordinary, everyday things that I can fit into this category of Harmful Things. Readers have suggested that this warrants psychotropic medication and/or the Ostrich Reaction (ignore the warnings, after all, I'm still here). But I don't know how to do that. I don't know how to wilfully ingest Titanium Dioxide in processed foods on a regular basis, after knowing (that is, thinking that I know) its direct connection to Alzheimer's.

What I've learned here is that very few people agree with me on these things - but whether that is from not knowing about them, or not caring about them, or simply disagreeing with them, is sometimes unclear. So, I've learned not to make small talk out of this type of subject with friends or family. People will think you're weird. And maybe one day I'll touch a bathroom doorknob, maybe somehow I'll relax and not have this list of 100 Harmful Things playing in my head throughout the day, but still, I doubt I'll be licking any grocery shelves any time soon.

Also, I now believe the poison candy thing is mostly a myth or urban legend after reading up on it due to the post that was on this thread the other day. Still, would you ACTUALLY let your kids eat an apple given to them by a stranger, or some weird cat lady’s homemade cupcakes? This is when it feels irrational…I know it’s a myth, I know 99.999% people aren’t bad enough to do something like that, and yet, I still feel it’s mostly off-limits and that we should only trick or treat in a neighborhood where we know everybody.

Also it's an oldie but goodie, but go google "spider dog prank," which is only something deadly if he scares you so bad that you run out into traffic.

Appendix rupture as a result of a hard punch in the stomach (like Houdini). Houdini was proud of his strong stomach muscles and asked a college student to punch him there as hard as he could. Houdini died soon thereafter, with a ruptured appendix. It’s unclear whether this was a direct effect of the stomach punching, but, I still think about it every time my kid decides to sucker-punch me in the belly.

Tooth whitening, because if it will do that to your teeth, what is it doing to your insides?

http://youngdentists.wordpress.com/2012/11/07/brussels-bans-teeth-whitening/

But good luck finding a toothpaste that doesn't have tooth whitening ingredients - there may still be 1 or 2 choices left at the store. I can't believe people would use a tooth whitening toothpaste as their regular, everyday toothpaste on an ongoing basis for years on end, but they must be, otherwise there would only be a few such products on the shelves, instead of nearly all toothpastes having that.

Phillae approaching, landing on, riding on, and drilling the Rosetta comet. My first concern was that we would wobble it out of its normal trajectory and somehow increase the likelihood it would impact Earth. But now I’m thinking, for all we now, that comet could be a lifeform, or contain lifeforms inside of it. Or, was it built or launched by sentient beings with unknown intentions? We’ve found organic molecules on it (http://online.wsj.com/articles/rosetta-p...omet-1416256078).

What attention are we attracting to our planet, by putting our space junk on it? It's like a billboard saying "Come to Earth!" for anyone that might exist to detect and read it.

There is at least one website promoting the bogus-sounding rumor that the real reason for the mission is that radio signals emitted from a transmittor located on the comet were detected by scientists decades ago. I'm at least 9% less nutty than those dudes.

Dark matter could be a Deadly Killer.
http://www.morningvertical.com/dark-matter-can-be-spotted-though-gps-satellites/244699/

Dark matter causes a wrinkle in the fabric of space-time, and the theory goes that as it passes through places, clocks will go out of sink because of its effects on where the clocks were located in time. So I’m thinking (perhaps my reasoning is quite preposterous) that dark matter could be the cause of some inexplicable accidents. Cars zip straight into other cars, nobody sees it coming because there is a very temporary bend in time localized to that intersection, and someone’s moving car disappeared from 9:42:17 a.m. and reappeared at 9:42:22 a.m., and at that point there was another car passing through the intersection and whammo. The accidentally time-traveling driver wouldn’t know it had happened, as the jump would be sub-instantaneous to him. The other driver would say he had looked and no one was coming, he had a clear path to turn through. Survivors and witnesses could only say “That car came out of nowhere” and would all assume that this was due to its high rate of speed.

I assume someone will make the following joke so I'll go ahead and do so myself: it all depends on whether the driver ever reaches 88 m.p.h., heh.

Ordinary food.

“It's well known, of course, that certain foods have anti-carcinogenic properties: organosulphur compounds, flavonoids, tannins and carotenoids have been shown to inhibit some forms of cancer. Unfortunately, these anti-carcinogens tend to be found in foods that also contain carcinogens - well-known killers such as broccoli, onions, strawberries and cabbage. Even while these vegetables are preventing you from getting cancer, they are giving you cancer.”

Shrimp, maybe, if you're my daughter. She has severe food allergies to a bunch of stuff, mostly tree nuts, but also some seafood. We're just not sure exactly which. We're pretty sure crab can kill her, but we're not sure about shrimp. She ate four shrimp over a 2 hour period in the doctors office without any reaction. So, he wants her to eat five, or maybe six, over a short period to see what happens. So we're going to give her shrimp as an appetizer on Thanksgiving, and then see if we have to set the table for five, or just four.

Still a bit early in the holiday season but this reminds me of The Chieftians "St. Stephen's Day Murders."


I knew of two sisters whose name it was Christmas
And one was named Dawn of course, the other one was named Eve
I wonder if they grew up hating the season
The good will that lasts till the Feast of Saint Stephen

For that is the time to eat, drink, and be merry
Till the beer is all spilled and the whiskey has flowed
And the whole family tree you neglected to bury
Are feeding their faces until they explode

There'll be laughter and tears over Tia Marias
Mixed up with that drink made from girders
'Cause it's all we've got left as they draw their last breath
Ah, it's nice for the kids, as you finally get rid of them
In the Saint Stephen's Day Murders

Uncle is garglin' a heart-breaking air
While the babe in his arms pulls out all that remains of his hair
And we're not drunk enough yet to dare criticize
The great big kipper tie he's about to baptize

With his gin-flavoured whiskers and kisses of sherry
His best Crimble shirt slung out over the shop
While the lights from the Christmas tree blow up the telly
His face closes in like an old cold pork chop

And the carcass of the beast left over from the feast
May still be found haunting the kitchen
And there's life in it yet, we may live to regret
When the ones that we poisoned stop twitchin'

There'll be laughter and tears over Tia Marias
Mixed up with that drink made from girders
'Cause it's all we've got left as they draw their last breath
Ah, it's nice for the kids, as you finally get rid of them (rid of them)
In the Saint Stephen's Day Murders

No, not joking at all. We got the shrimp at Shop n Save. She had her Benedryl and her Epipen handy. And, no, if she didn't do it when with us for the holiday, she'd be 400 miles away alone in her apartment. She survived. Apparently, she can still eat shrimp, just not crab. Lobster is yet to be tested.

Control as in (for now) in spite of the over and under reactions only 2 people who contracted it outside the US died and a few nurses who were trained as best as protocol was provided to them were "cured" of it after they contracted it in the US while the masses were told that there is no chance of Ebola coming to the United States?

Extreme exercise programs (insert any flavor-of-the-year, trademarked product/program name here – you know, the ones with Vomity the Clown or whatever mascot), due to the obvious health risks (heart damage, rhabdo, etc.) of pushing exercise to the point of failure.

Cardiac death, immune system impact, etc.: http://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fitness/archive/2013/08/23/extreme-endurance-exercise.aspx

Rhabdomyolysis/death of muscles at the cellular level – they implode from overexertion…

Yep, Okie, my thoughts, too! LOL!

Freakie Poo...bird poo washes off in the rain...flys are just flies. Unless it's a fruit fly, I don't think they even bother landing on fruit.

But at any rate, I usually pluck them coming straight from mucking stalls without washing my hands...so that probably negates any other 'bugs' that could possibly be already on them. laugh

You see, I'm not a "nut." I'm interested in conspiracies and subscribe to several of them, and enjoy healthy things, but am more of a "fan" than a "nut," I'd say. And, I rely on my spouse to wash the apples. Usual procedure is remove sticker and wash entire apple, with special attention to washing away the adhesive glue that held the sticker in place. This one slipped through with its sticker still intact. We haven't discussed this "incident" at home, ha ha, and I don't plan to. But you can be sure I'll be checking my apples from now on. laugh

French fries and potato chips, because frying or baking potatoes produces acrylamide, a carcinogen. Also because they’re greasy-disgusting-terrible for you, particularly the fries that are served out of drive-up windows.

Don't ever say anything bad about meatloaf - meatloaf is delicious! (That's an adaptation of a quote about donuts from the flick White Castle, I think).

(crickets)

Anyway for those who didn't click the link, the claim is that a chain restaurant's food made two people so violently ill that they died. So I definitely wouldn't recommend eating that joint's meatloaf and chasing it with Haribo sugarfree gummy bears.

And yes, absolutely: Chain Restaurant Food is a Deadly Killer. Near as I can tell, it's all basically a bunch of TV dinners. Prepared elsewhere, factory-style, shipped frozen, and simply warmed up by the "chefs" in the restaurant's "kitchen." That's Cracker Barrel, Applebee's, Chili's, you name it. Not to mention their 3,000-calorie dinner plates.

Flu shots...I take one because it's free, and I've NEVER had influenza, but have been told that if I ever DO contract it, I will take the flu shot from then on. Most people say, "I have the flu" when they don't have influenza.

Margerine....never!! Plenty of good old fashioned BUTTER. I have borderline high cholesterol...definitely not caused by diet...I won't take a statin....makes me feel like c@rp...and your body needs cholesterol for joint repair and other stuff.

The body is an amazing thing. It CAN process tons of bad stuff and survive. We can't avoid everything that might be bad.

Diet sodas...yes....but I don't tote a bucket of the stuff around all day long and I DO drink plenty of water too. Most people who carry the bucket of soda drink that exclusively, avoiding water altogether.

City water?...not here....tastes bad. But I don't buy cases of bottled water. I have gallon glass bottles that I refill with RO water....then fill smaller GLASS bottles to take with me to the gym and other places.

Organ meat....I eat it occasionally. Pink meat....beef, yes....ahi tuna, yes. Raw sushi...no.

Processed foods will kill you...just concentrate on whole foods....you will be fine.

Castoreum, made from the pheromone glands located near the base of the tail of North American beavers, and used as a food additive but often labeled merely as “natural flavor,” “strawberry flavor,” or used to make imitation vanilla extract.

I read that the combined US consumption of it is less than 1,000 pounds per year, and many companies say they don't use it. Still, whenever I see the cheaper, fake vanilla extract on the shelf at the grocery store, my lip curls away from my teeth. (That's one - of many - problems with really digging conspiracy theories: even when they are debunked, I think the attempts to debunk are just evidence of the truthfulness of the original claim. laugh )

My (possibly preposterous) reason for listing "beaver scent as food" in this thread, despite the fact that FDA assures us of its safety: I don’t think we know enough about glandular function in animals to know whether it is safe to eat their secretions. We don’t know what we don’t know, sure, but it just defies common sense to milk these glands and eat their juices as a cheaper alternative to a readily available plant food.

Food coloring (like in all those red and green Christmas cookies, and pretty much everything else in a pretty color that comes from the grocery store, and lots of foods that don't seem like or look like they need food dyes but which have them anyway), because some of the most common chemical food dyes are carcinogenic.

"In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, [1] by posting inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."

President Barack Obama will soon give Congress his proposal for a new authorization for the use of military force against Islamic State fighters, and it will place strict limits on the types of U.S. ground forces that can be deployed, according to congressional sources.

Declaration of war, the short form. (Buckaroo Bonzi)

So people getting killed all over the planet by these guys, 4 US citizens dead already and the day after a Twitter threat on the him he is now ready to go to war.

ISIS is going to regret those Twitter posts. They could have gone on doing their thing for who knows how long.

Hopefully this will be enough to keep US citizens safe as some feeling unsafe have already taken matters into their own hands. I just saw that horrible news report on that guy from North Carolina, or some place, killing those 3 collage kids.

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 02/20/15 02:44 PM

According to the findings of a recent study, coffee will NOT kill you....in fact, it's healthy (in moderation). And eggs (in moderation....say 1 per day) has nothing to do with your cholesteral level.....in fact, your diet has very little to do with your cholesterol, period. So these things will also NOT kill you. NOW....they're saying red meat and sugar (in excess) will kill you.

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 02/20/15 02:47 PM

Not eating red meat would kill me. Stopping at the mexican grocery store on the way home to pick up some marinated skirt steaks for a fajita feast tonight! I can hardly wait.

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 02/20/15 03:00 PM

Yeah, I almost commented on the buttermilk dressing, but then decided not to. laugh I mean we are talking Georgia!

I think she should have requested buttermilk biscuits and gravy tho...what was she THINKING? crazy

And a pitcher of sweet tea.

And bacon. Lots of bacon!

As to cholesterol...cholesterol lowering drugs could kill you or bring on brain damage considering your brain is largely made up of...YEP...cholesterol. smile

Just wondering if "they" knew it took 40 hours to track and kill him someone had 40 hours to alert him to the fact that they was not the lion he should have killed and he could have killed another lion instead.

Let us see hmmm

2 Saudi Policemen killed in an Islamic style attack little news

1 lion killed major news.

I will refrain from the vast amount of killing in the USA as one would expect more about local news.

Being a lion cub in Cecil's pride and having him taken out will get them killed by the next leader of the pack.

would we then find a need to protest the offending new leader and give out his home address?

Re: Everything is Going to Kill Us - 07/30/15 07:15 PM

yet the same day this lion was killed, 4 endangered elephants were killed by poachers (I believe they said Zimbabwe but don't quote me on that) but this has not reached the level of mass hysteria that the lion achieved...

meanwhile, back in the real world, we still have millions in the US that are homeless, have no insurance, have undiagnosed mental illnesses, our infrastructure is crumbling, 60% of our federal highway bridges are sub-par, our school kids continue to slip down the line in rankings, obesity now affects more than 50% of the population, 10s of millions have dropped out of the work force because they can't find a job, inner city youth killings seem to have no end...and people are worried about a lion.

we have some seriously messed up priorities...

FWI and clarity (as I believe most have missed this point (and not a shout out at anyone )_) Cecil and his brother are wild animals and not people (even though people have been know to be called wild animals)
