The mods really seem to be getting bullish with the number of cow related headlines they'll green light. Are they milking some holiday I'm not aware of?
 
2009-12-18 07:50:18 PM
Well I seem to have all the symptoms. Kindly, shoot me back and forth between two circus cannons when I start foaming at the mouth.

I'm in the same pasture as you.

Have you ever tried to donate blood?

Sounds like you have a personal beef with them.

A veritable stampede. We should ruminate on potential meanings.

Not after eating English food, no. But the blood pudding really is quite good with the eggs they fry over there.
 
2009-12-18 10:37:57 PM
Not likely. You have to eat meat to get MCD.

Good luck.

Cows are hot. But I've found them loose.

Like throwing a crowbar in an empty room.

If Denny Crane says it's mad cow, it's mad cow.

Moo.
 
2009-12-18 11:29:24 PM
Well now, that explains some things.
 
2009-12-18 11:30:02 PM
if mad cow disease is the price of eating steak, then bring it on
 
2009-12-18 11:30:21 PM
I replaced a teacher who had this disease, at first I just shadowed her as a babysitter for legal reasons in case she walked into traffic, watching her deteriorate was scary.

I count ten livestock-related headlines in the last couple hours; most of them cows; quite a few dealing with livestock killed by fire. Wikipedia reveals today, December 18, to be A) the day of the first Thanksgiving (when we eat livestock?) B) the day the first European landed in New Zealand (a suprising number of Aussie / New Zealand threads lately, too) C) the Chinese Yuan dynasty was founded (in 1271, the year of the sheep, a barnyard animal but not a cow), and D) (and probably most interestingly) the feast of Epona in Gallo-Roman religion. Epona, a name we all recognize as Link's horse, was the protector of horses, donkeys and mules, animals used for farm work rather than consumption; it is possible this synchronicity symbols a triumph of animals used for labor over animals used for food.

Do the math, people.

Also, reverse vampires.

No! Not mad cow! I'm already supposed to have SARS, avian flu, H1N1, smallpox, anthrax, and the myriad of other scary things the news said I would die from since 2001. Oh no. I don't have health insurance either! Guess I should either go to medical school to learn to treat myself or just pretend to be an illegal immigrant so I can get some health coverage.
 
2009-12-18 11:34:22 PM
this is a moo point.

//like a cow's opinion.
 
2009-12-18 11:34:37 PM
I saw this movie. It had hot girls. Until they tried to eat you. (Ok, so they were still kinda hot.)
 
2009-12-18 11:35:57 PM
Its amazing how similar the symptoms are to "drunk."
 
2009-12-18 11:36:36 PM
I was stationed at RAF Chicksands, Bedfordshire, UK, from 1980 to 1982, so I'm getting a real kick from this story.

/I'm screwed.

At what point will the media quit trying to scare us with real diseases and just go with "Your child's kindergarten teacher may be a zombie! Our very own Panicky McDangersells will show you how to tell. Tonight at 11."?
 
2009-12-18 11:40:19 PM
I'm holding out for pissed buffalo disease.

ARTICLE IS A FAIL.


In the entire history of Mad Cow Disease, only 7 confirmed cases in humans
You have a better chance getting stabbed to death by your great grandfather, while he was having a seizure.
When Mad-Cow is in humans, its called Cruetsfeld-Jakobs Syndrome (CJS).

There is no scientific evidence that eating Mad-Cow Beef can cause CJS. At all.
Worst media fearmongering of all time.

/im done raging.

Lets see:

Pig: Brain parasites
Cow: Mad-cow disease

What diseases do you get from chickens, turkeys, and cephalopods?

Two cows are in a pasture, eating grass.
One cow turns to the other and says, "Are you afraid of mad cow disease?"

The other cow says, "Of course not, I'm a helicopter!"

/The veal, try it.
 
2009-12-18 11:53:03 PM
Is that so?

He should have had a sex change, then he would only have to deal with it a few days each month.
 
2009-12-18 11:53:50 PM
I'm sure you guys remember that John Titor said that Mad Cow Disease would become a very big deal in the future, speaking from the early 2000s, right?
 
2009-12-18 11:55:17 PM
Also I served in the USAF at RAF Lakenheath from 1984-86. Am not allowed to give blood thanks to that.

So if I start seeing pulsating cows dripping down the walls, it may not be due to flashbacks from all the drugs I took, it may be from the flesh I ate.
Great. Pass the brain stem and spinal cord surprise.
