OK, this was clearly written by one of us, despite the clever use of 'bigfoot' in place of 'yeti'

The odds of the American government granting any state permission to go its own way are on par with winning the lottery while getting hit by a meteor while seeing Bigfoot while finding gluten-free pizza that tastes like the real thing.

Why did the robot go back to robot school?

Because his skills were getting a little rusty!

Johhny came running into the house after school one day, shouting, “Daddy! Daddy! I got a 100 in school today!”

“That’s great, sont,” said his daddy. “Come in to the living room and tell me about it.”

“Well,” said Johnny, “I got 50 in spelling, 30 in Maths and 20 in Science

No, but they're a great troupe... . . .no musical at our school this year due to teachers' unions enacting a work-to-rule that has stopped ALL extra-curriculars -- sports teams, drama productions, homework and tutoring clubs.... . ... :(:angry:

SOoOooooOo.... .. the kids are doing their own production, with no support, finacial or otherwise, from the school board. Quite amazing what young people can do with a little support....

Well, I did not go to the Canterbury Agricultural and Pastoral Show today, the number 150 edition (it was 54 degrees!) and I did not see Prince Charles and Camilla, so I did not get to execute the curtsey I had been practising for months!! - yes, even in hospital -- and I am so disappointed :P not to have personally made the acquaintance of our next king and his consort -- somehow that name seems appropriate for her although she is gracious enough, goodness knows -- (unless, of course, he abdicates - which he will never do because I believe he actually likes this stuff :unsure: and has been waiting sooooo many years for it), and maybe before he dies his mum will and then he will be "IT"

Sooooo today in one of my classes a student did a presentation on fukushima and cited the chernobyl incident along with images of its victims. (i am not trying to start a debate or anything of the sort)

I have an interest into various... shall we say medical conditions caused by genetics or whathaveyou, both lifetaking and able to live with ones? So, following this i decided to surf on wikipedia and find out what the effects were.

I had already known some of the medical terms and could identify them on the video the student showed amongst others. It has led me to the conclusion that genetics or rather the human body can be a funny thing.

Just one "info part" out of line and it can do things that you wouldn't think would be possible. I feel lucky that my issues are minor in comparison to what others deal with on a day to day basis.

Random tangent i thought would make an interesting subject to talk about.

I take exception to this! I never had a math class that looked anything like English!

Isosceles

Me thinks it is also equilateral :P , and apart from "the square on the hypotenuse equals the sum of the square on the other two sides," that is all the geometry I have retained (or perhaps ever knew?? :rolleyes:

I dunno, but it sure scared the bejeezes out of me. I learned from it though. The first bookkeeping class I went to I walked out of, never to return :ph34r:

OMG. . .. . ... . . . ..STOP THE MATHS!! I feel sick..... . ..

Please, please, let's talk about...... . ..split infinitives....phrasal verbs......my favortite -- dangling participles... . .!!

Maybe the critical review starts w/ calling the book unengaging.

"Pfff .. . Pull an axe on me, eh?"

Lotta lol . .. ..reciprocation welcomed, in a sense an integral part of an infinite series of posts. (whose sum remains finite, natch)

The Yeti's Guide to Stream of Consciousness

I still need read my book. Hmmm got till Tuesday Midnight though... still probably should start it soon.

Lol, i got the main body of the paper done, now i have to do the annotated bibliography (ugh) and proof read it.

There must be some kind of multiquotes award for that last post. I thought for a minute I was having a flashback.

Mushroom

I think you are right about Charles. No way is he handing over. It was his birthday yesterday (along with one of my best friends, I can't quote birthdays for the rest of the family). Sorry you missed him.

You'll notice I have not worked out quotes from my phone :o

    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
    • Diagnosed at 57
    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
