Uncontrollable flatulence.

Surely there exists a magical device capable of replicating anything at all? Why do we still use medieval Luddite technologies like how they made cheese 600 years ago????

Trocadero: Peter von Nostrand: And the water they make it with had fish drop deuces in. What's your point?

[206x263 from http://www.davidstuff.com/general/wcfields1.jpg image 206x263]
I never drink water, b/c fish fark in it.


I was told that once, by a former guitarist of Crazy Horse, while waiting for a plane at LAX.

He then went on a 20 minute diatribe on how he hated Neil Young.

Best time waiting for a plane I've ever had.

HotWingAgenda: There are people that didn't know this? Sucralose is also like one hydrogen atom away from being antifreeze. If you really want to give a chemist an aneurism, go around claiming sucralose is harmful because its compound is similar to poison.


And water is one hydrogen atom away from being certain death!

Epicanis: doglover: Cake Hunter: I prefer my bacteria excrement in super hoppy IPA form.

Your dubious taste in beers aside, it's yeast not bacteria. If your beer had bacteria in it, it would also make even you gag.

You've never had a good Lambic, then?


I don't think anyone has.

The people who make and sell aspartame tell me you're wrong, and who am I going to believe, a pack of well-dressed corporate executives or a farker with a splitting headache?
 
2013-08-26 12:05:31 AM  

picturescrazy: Anyway I don't care what it's made from. Aspartame makes me feel hungover and taste like ass. That's why I avoid it.


Which, along with the headaches mentioned previously, is a valid reason to avoid it. Just like people who have an intolerance to gluten or lactose have valid reasons to avoid those products... they usually don't try and get the rest of society to do so as well because of their issues with it like these nutters.

The shrill shill tone of the writing is plainly obvious even to me at midnight at the end of a day in the sun, on four hours' sleep after a with a half a bottle of wine downrange. Anyone who reads this article and puts sufficient stock in its writers to draw any alarm from it whatsoever deserves to have a panic attack.

Is there any food that does NOT have an aesthetically displeasing manufacture process? As has already been pointed out in this thread, water has fish poop and dolphin cum in it, cheese and yogurt are made with bacteria, booze is made from the by-product of fungus eating sugar, and meat is dead animals.

Even "natural" fruits and veggies are subject to these nauseating shenanigans -- somebody's gotta take that produce out of the ground or off of the vine, and chances are it isn't the guy who gets paid enough to afford basic toiletries like hand-washing soap.

I don't like to side with nutters and I have no problem with other people drinking diet pop or putting it in their coffee or whatever, but at the same time I do have a big problem with their industry. It wasn't too long ago there was an article here about people trying to change rules so they could put aspartame in milk without the logo on the front. Never found out how that went, but fark that.

It also has human shiat, puke, piss and whatever else gets flushed down the toilet/sink in it. Or do you think your household waste water goes to some magical holding tank, never to be seen again?

Oh great, now I'm gonna have to stick to a strict beer diet


Fun fact: Beer was necessary for civilization. Early big cities had a horrible time getting access to drinkable water, so they drank beer instead. It's one of the reasons people of American Indian descent often don't have a tolerance for alcohol: they never lived in big cities where there was a sewage problem.

Yay beer!

I wouldn't worry about this, but as for the more well known allegations about aspartame...

When my sister got a brain tumour, her oncologists went over diet, lifestyle etc, and had little to say as she was by and large living a perfectly healthy life. They did tell her to avoid aspartame though.

Must be pretty good fearmongering if it has also sucked in oncologists.

Depending on where you live, you may be able to find locally (and humanely) raised lamb and pigs, too.

I don't care who you are, if you can't back up your belief with a review of the medical literature (and I don't mean cherry-picking a single study, I mean evaluating the consensus of standard of care established by relevant specialties), then you're no better than someone babbling about neoplasteons.

It's very difficult to be a commoner in this world, relying on the expertise of others about advise that can have a huge effect on our lives. But in this internet era, and especially with the dawning of the age of Open Access, that doesn't mean you have to take everything your doctor says without question, like some neolithic cowering from the spell of a shaman.
