@Beaker

If the bacteria you ate were immediately killed in your stomach, there would be no such thing as food poisoning.

There have been several studies showing beneficial effects for several bowel conditions from probiotics (IBS, diarrhea in children, maybe Chron's). They will probably not help with as many things as the hippies think they will, but they won't hurt you (apparently unless you have acute pancreatitis?) and yogurt is tasty.

Look, I recognize that my smoking is terrible and proved dangerous and I will quit.

But those alcohol recommendations? I don't care how much shorter my life is, it's better without a two drink maximum.

I'm always sort of amazed when people act like stimming is somehow "weird". I'm pretty neurotypical AFAIK, and I do it. When I get a migraine and am waiting for the pain killers to kick in and trying to cope with the fact that everything is too loud and too bright and smells too strong, I will rub my hand up and down my thigh or bounce my fist on it. Or sing to myself and rock back and forth in time to the music. (I do this for other kinds of pain too) I've discovered that if there's no Xanax available (e.g. the time I was on a plane and I had foolishly left my meds in the bag that was in the overhead compartment) anything that's in a 3 time signature (3/4, 6/8, 9/8, etc) will soothe anxiety, as will Paul Simon's voice.

This sounds eerily similar to the arguments going on in the gaming world.

Internet Dudes, where's the exhaustive list of spheres of human activity where casual rape threats are NOT considered "a part of the industry" that you just "deal with"?

@MrsTeacherFace Haha, yes, the bodily fluids are gross no doubt, but I mean the actual new-baby-head smell that most people love - the clean one that smells like powder or...milk or something? I actually find it vaguely nauseating. It's probably best for the species that my reaction seems to be unusual!

Psychological science, meet food science: We want to eat the baby because the meat is tenderer.

@iceberg also, yes. Babies developed cuteness as a defense against being thrown out the fucking window at three in the morning because oh my god i need sleep.

What does it say about me that I feel nothing around people-babies but am ready to eat, regurgitate and then re-eat the cuddliest baby kittens, pandas and elephants like its my job (in the kind a motherly way! of course.)???

@formergr AND, if you read the actual Post article and not the tabloid journalism of gawker, you'd see that I was speaking from experience. Seeing as we DO NOT know each other, I can see why you'd think I am a "giant jerk." I honestly could care less what people think of me, I'm just happy to be sober and have my life back. Haters gonna hate... KISSEZ <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
