^ I always wanted to be a timelord.

Marcus Bales 10-19-2009 09:57 AM

Hey, when is Hyakujo's Fox's birthday, anyway?

brightpearl 10-19-2009 03:02 PM

Hard to say, as he's apparently still counting down to 500.

new qotd for Wednesday

Anything you're allergic to?
Extra points for entertaining symptoms.

madasacutsnake 10-21-2009 02:53 AM

Penicillin, bactrim, erythromycin, voltaren. Death probably isn't very entertaining depending on whether you like me or not.

Jack Flanders 10-21-2009 03:54 AM



poison ivy



and it was worse that this. landscaping + poison ivy = not so good.

Coffee 10-21-2009 12:04 PM

nothing...well, lead perhaps if it is moving fast enough.

Stephi_B 10-21-2009 12:42 PM

----the rather boring part:
pollen - grass, some herbs (but not! WEED :D) and rye (but it was OK for me to read this book there by Salinger, and rye bread is fine too ;))


----the more interesting part (which unfortunately was not in the test there at my throat-nose-ear doc):
* conventions like dresscode, ritual blabla, ritual lies etc (causes extreme boredom in the best case, severe aggressions at worst)
* tussis (a certain type of dumb+superficial women, I did a successful hyposensitisation therapy however! :) meanwhile I only react on them with a mild smile)
* alarm clocks and phones which have such similar ringtone sounds (cause a stop of my heart for a second, induce extreme pissed-off-ness and nervousity)

Frieda 10-21-2009 04:54 PM

lanolin, wool alcohols, wool, glue, dust mite, dog hair, pollen.

Brynn 10-21-2009 06:21 PM

Penicillin, wheat :(

I love good crusty garlic bread, crackers, pasta, Italian food, cookies - I sneak bites. Few things smell as good or taste as good as wheat to me - not polenta, not corn tortillas, not rye, not spelt, not garbanzo bean flour, not quinoa, not rice pasta - nothing tastes as good as wheat. So grains aren't a big part of my diet.

If I over-do it, I get excema on the left side of my face, and if I ignore that over the long term, colon cancer.

Peregrine 10-21-2009 09:53 PM

Cat epithelium, dog epithelium, dust, mixed feathers, mite farinae, mite D.P., tobacco, alternaria, helminthosporium, hormodendrum, birch, Orchard, Perennial rye, Timothy, cat pelt, cockroach, tree pollen, grass, meadow fescue, red top, sweet vernal, cocklebur, dandelion, Green pea, spinach, string bean, clam, lobster, scallop, banana (Ray Comfort was right in one case at least), peanut, mussels, buckwheat, lima bean, salmon, tuna, sunflower seed, cantaloupe, and coconut.

Mostly, I just get stuffed up. except for the seafood, which makes the back of my throat swell up.

YsaPur EsChomuw 10-23-2009 03:25 PM

I don't know yet.

MoJoRiSin 10-23-2009 04:43 PM

mo is allergic to wheat if she eats it more than once a week
whole wheat is worse than white so for instance if she goes to a resturant where they put bread on the table she eats it but not otherwuse :confused:
^^peregrine :: mo wants to get a grant to study this
runny/and or stuffed up symptom as it relates to food allergies
(wheat and petrochemicals in particular)
my question is this :: one hundred years ago did people who had food allergies have these (hay fever ?) symptoms ?
I never heard of this even in the 1980's

give them a rub

Peregrine 10-23-2009 05:02 PM

Mo, most of my food allergies are mild, except that they tend to lower my resistance to the environmental allergens. Some of them might make my skin itch a little when I handle them. It was annoying, but not critical. I used to work at a restaurant, and my hands tended to itch for a while whenever I had to prepare shellfish.

People probably had allergies for as long as there have been people. They just... tended to die from them. I'd imagine industrial pollutants and thing like tobacco use tended to make mild reactions more pronounced, and therefore noticeable, but also medical science has progressed to the point that symptoms that used to be fatal are now severe, or at least survivable if properly treated. So either inadvertently, or by design, we've corralled the disease into a smaller space where it can be diagnosed and studied more effectively. That's my guess, anyway.

Also, doctors have actually become competent and learned to give a shit in the last century or two. Where previously they wrote it off as a cold, or an imbalance of the humours, or something.

MoJoRiSin 10-23-2009 06:54 PM

^ Peregrine your arguments have won me over
you are most certainly correct
thank you for correcting me in this matter

oh yea > mo is very allergic to walnuts as well

lukkucairi 10-23-2009 07:15 PM

I'm drawing a line between sensitivities and proper allergies -

allergies to every pollen released by western U.S. trees, and at least half the weeds and bushes; all proper tree nuts; mangoes; dust mites; poison ivy...

sensitivities to all grains except rice, corn, quinoa, and amaranth. I don't break out in hives if I eat wheat, rye, barley etc., but they give me a cranial neuralgia that feels like a sadistic dwarf sitting on my shoulder and stabbing me in the head with an ice pick :)

I think you mean "tapeworm."

lukkucairi 10-23-2009 07:47 PM

^ nothing like a little therapeutic parasitical infection

brightpearl 10-23-2009 08:11 PM

Well, hopefully now that they've figured out what the worms do to your immune system to reduce allergic response, they can synthesize it, and you can take a pill rather than...you know...some eggs.
:eek:

brightpearl 10-23-2009 08:13 PM

Or you could do this.


I'm actually open to some of the things mentioned, but it's still funny. :D

Peregrine 10-23-2009 09:20 PM

Paging Doctor Avogadro! Code grey, Emergency!

¿ can I play with your teddy bear ?

Brynn 10-26-2009 04:50 AM

Of course you can, but you have to promise to sew it back together and take the LEDs off when you're done.

Hyakujo's Fox 10-26-2009 09:50 AM

it's possible.

trisherina 10-26-2009 09:56 AM

He's cut out of pale blue plush that I was using to sew robes, and held together by staples (Maus made him for me when she was much littler, and his name is Winston). You can hold him gently so that his staples stay in. See the pretty ribbon around his neck? And the happy little face drawn on with Sharpie?

brightpearl 10-27-2009 12:38 AM

All right then, but have him back by midnight.

He's a bear when he doesn't get enough sleep.

YsaPur EsChomuw 10-27-2009 01:30 AM

Mine is imaginary, but here, you can cuddle Teddy for a while. If you're careful enough, you can recognise the faint outlines of the head and the bulging belly.

MoJoRiSin 10-27-2009 02:10 AM

of course !!

zero 10-30-2009 05:37 PM

¿bbbbbbotd

blah blah blah blah blah blah?

MoJoRiSin 10-30-2009 05:59 PM

what is hidden will be revealed

12"razormix 10-30-2009 07:46 PM


revealed my arse!
