Look at me still talking when there's baking to do.

2wolves: "Cake or death?"


Those of us with celiac disease dither over this question too long.

That suddenly reminds me of when my sister visited and got pizza (she has Celiac's)... the pizza was basically cheese on top and a tiny little cracker type crust (sad face).

When it comes to the cake though, she usually just decides the cake is worth it every once in a while :P

I don't know if this is available where you live, but Dove's Farm gluten-free range of flour, baking stuff etc., is fantastic. I have a coeliac sufferer in the family who I bake for on a regular basis. He has never had a problem from anything from Dove's Farm. The flour is great, everything turns out just like 'normal' flour, just follow the recipes properly. They have recipes on the back of the packs that really taste just like the real thing.

If she really has celiac disease, she's risking all sorts of wonderful things like cancer and brain damage. The more you "cheat", the more harm it causes over time. Maybe she needs to be a little more educated about the disease? Most people think it's a simple allergy, when it's really an autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. It's your immune system eating your organs, for Pete's sake.

Personally, I get acutely ill for 6 weeks and then am very fatigued and have messed up digestion for 6 months. I would never consider "cheating".

New Farkin User Name: Yay, reference!..., but why was this greenlit?


There is nothing wrong with cake being greenlit. Or pie, if you must lie about it.

TheShavingofOccam123: Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte

I don't know how in the hell this can be a popular activity. I had my Kirsch torted once years ago and I'm still walking funny.

Besides, if you don't know what German cuisine entails, ask this guy.



Seriously, the Germans know two things. Beer and chocolate. Oh and unleashed slaughter against humanity. Three things.


My name is Kirsch and I certainly would not want to be "torted." That just sounds painful.

"What would the world be like without comedy? It would be Germany!"

I'm sure there's no variation or severity of disease either? So Person A is going to suffer the verbatim symptoms person B is?

Not all German food is bad. German potato salad is delicious. Bacon in potato salad, served warm. Mmmm

Beer, chocolate, unleashed slaughter against humanity and delightful black uniforms...I'll come in again.

Thank you! I live about 45 minutes from Bob's Red Mill. I'm not eating any sweets or grains at the moment (basic Paleo diet, and it helps with a wide range of crap that is wrong with me.) If someone just offers me cake or death, though, I'm bound to take a while wondering if death wouldn't be more merciful -- assuming, of course, that the cake isn't gluten free.

/if it is gluten free, then the choice is easy

To my understanding, the damage always takes place in the small intestine, brain, etc. That is how celiac disease is diagnosed -- damage to the small intestine is confirmed by endoscope and biopsy. How it manifests outwardly (as more or less severe) is different for different people. I have a "moderately severe" case. Your sister may not show symptoms severely now, but the damage will still build up, and may manifest as worse symptoms later in her life if she continues.

What, no fish-shaped candies, fish-shaped fish, or fish-shaped Benzine complexes?

ransack.: I never played Portal before either


Great game, and the 2nd one is even better. I just replayed them both last week. It's a nice diversion from your typical 1st person shooter.

"I'd just like to point out that you were given every opportunity to succeed. There was even going to be a party for you. A big party that all your friends were invited to. I invited your best friend, the Companion Cube. Of course, he couldn't come, because you murdered him. All your other friends couldn't come either, because you don't have any other friends. Because of how unlikeable you are. It says so here in your personnel file: unlikeable. Liked by no one. A bitter, unlikeable loner whose passing shall not be mourned. "Shall not be mourned." That's exactly what it says. Very formal. Very official. It also says you were adopted. So that's funny too."

Both were good, but I think I preferred the minimalism of P1. Maybe time to play it again (when I've finished all the other games I've got lined up).

That it is / they are.
