This woman is what's wrong with the world.

I think "nuts" is perfect for this mother

Sounds like
*puts on sunglasses*
I'm allergic to you, mom

Just put your genetic dead-end in a bubble, lady. After you have your tubes tied and your kid neutered, of course.

doglover: This woman is what's wrong with the world.


Agreed. Any other species and we'd give the runt of the litter away or shoot it. You know why nobody had peanut or milk allergies 300 years ago? Because modern science didn't have the luxury of trying to save them. Evolution and survival of the fittest is trying to work and we're stifling it.

As someone with severe allergies I have these things to say -

Take the child from the mother and sterilize her immediately.

doglover: This woman is what's wrong with the world.


This.

It sounds like she's not getting any wood or access to nuts at home if you know what I mean and I think that you do.

Newsletter/ etc. I think that there should be a weeping angel facepalm pshop contest for beings such as this. Kill all the trees ? The needs of the one do not outweigh the needs of the many. And I am willing to bet that we are talking about at least a dozen squirrels and who knows how many birds ?
plus- did anyone mention yet that the whole thing is stupid and this lady should have a psych eval ?

According to Jared Diamond, acorns are edible and but for the quirk of nature that requires the oak tree be raised for years before it bears fruit it would be a common food today.

Also, I think I saw Bear Grylls eat some once.

Acorns aren't even nuts. Oaks are a totally diff family from the tree nuts. This woman however is indeed nuts.
 
2012-11-14 02:58:13 AM
So, she's trying to give the city a nut punch?

Good luck with that.

Spad31: NUTS!

So, if you point your finger to this kid and say "Nuts!", can the mother have you arrested for threatening her widdle pwecciouws?

Would the mother be willing to foot the bill for all that tree removal? It's not cheap, and why should all the other taxpayers shoulder the burden?

Wow, not an American. I'm shocked.

Nuts are a serious problem though. Jenny McCarthy walked through a school once, and five kids were hospitalized.

Acorns were a staple of native American diet. You have to shell & grind the acorns then soak them in water to remove the tannic acid.

Is a joke, yes?

yup, acorns can be ground fine, soaked and strained several times until the water coming out of the mush becomes clear, then you dry it and use it like any other flour to bake with, its not bad, just a hella lot of work and if you mess it up it tastes like crap and can make you sick.

What about zip lock bags? Obviously it would affect a kids mobility, and it would be hard to breathe. But the entertainment value alone would be amazing. The kid would stay fresh longer too. It's a win win.

I inhale Krema natural peanut butter by the jar. Go through maybe three jars or more in a week. I'll bet I could just take a stroll through a random elementary school, and with just my presence, weed out the genetic weaklings.

Can we get a plague that targets complete morons like this woman in TFA?

Well, if she was worried about kids bullying her kid with acorns, this publicity will surely prevent it.
 
2012-11-14 03:33:56 AM
That's like getting rid of all the cows cause your snowflake is allergic to milk.

Nut punch the tree and you get poked in the sugar tits with a sewing needle crazy lady.

But you are NOT entitled to a nut free world. The morons in HR hired a nut allergy stockboy where I work. Are you kidding me? No they weren't. Sorry kid, it's a farking supermarket! Choose another line of work.

We were at Whole Foods recently and wanted a gelato out of the deli case. The guy behind the counter said he ws afraid to scoop it because he was lactose intolerant and was just watching the counter while somebody was on break. WTF? Why are you there?
I have severe alllergies and have no patience for this kind of drama.

You think the husband's withholding sex and now she's gone crazy? Or do you think this single mother of one needs a partner wielding one of these:

Oh we do realize it, we just don't care.

If you have a deficiency to an everyday item billions take for granted, it is up to you to change your behavior, not the billions in response to your issue. Society shouldn't cater to the special needs of a few individuals. If nuts are bothering her child, stay away from the nuts. If thats an issue, then homeschool the child. If the deficiency is so great that a small quantity may kill them, well your living on borrowed time because at some point, there will be an encounter with the substance that will end ithings regardless of how careful you are.

Wait, if the kid is allergic to nuts, how does he avoid contact with his own mother?

Please, think of this poor woman's child! Calling her "nuts" might trigger an anxiety attack in the child. Or worse, he might kiss her goodnight and die from having kissed a nut!

StopLurkListen: remove the tannic acid.


And once you do that, you use the left over water, which now contains tannic acid, to tan hides.

Just use the brain. Not only is it excellent for tanning but most animals have enough brain matter to tan their own hide. It is like a free tanning gift when you kill an animal!
