We used to do that all the time back in the 60s.
I can't remember any of the kids' names.

On a positive note, it's good to see kids taking an interest in science and experimentation.

Interesting.  I watch a film called "School Girl Nut Attack"...but it was Japanese, not Swedish.

I'm more interested in the side story,  Half naked man grinds trains to a halt.

That's gotta hurt.

is there a reason we put peanut allergy people in with the regular folks?  why not make a blue room like we do for the tards and just keep them in there.

Oh good, another thread where people advocate we inconvenience a majority of people for the sake of a few people.

How could someone not see this coming? Put a sign that says "Warning: If you press this button, your best friend will die horribly!" on a button and kids would be fighting over who got to hit it first

No one has advocated anything... This is story of a child with a severe allergy and some moron decided to essentially poison her.

Please stop.  This tired line of thought does not make you seem at all as edgy or genetically superior as it did when you were slowly forming the words in your addled brain.

I will take up the strawman.  Are you that self centered and narcistic that it bothers you that much to make a few reasonable accommodations to avoid putting someone else's life at risk?  Are you really that special?

More interesting would be to stare at this person, after having a chance to tamper with the soda, and say "We put a nut in your soda to see what happens."

Psychosomatic allergen testing. You certainly don't test with the trigger substance, in case it's a somatic allergen.

At the school where my wife substitutes, there are whole classes of 'peanut kids'. The whole time I went through school though, I think I met one girl with a nut allergy. Is my experience rare or has there really been that much of an increase in the number of these allergy cases? If so, does anyone know of any studies being conducted to find out what the cause is?

This really bugs me for some reason.

Anderson's Pooper: Teenagers are inherently evil, especially the girls.  Never let them know where your weak spot is.


Reminds me of a Jay Mohr standup.

Father to children:  "All right, that's enough!  I want you out of the house for the rest of the day.  Go find something to do."

Boys' response:  [shrugs]  "OK."

Girls' response:  "You're the reason Mommy drinks in the garage."

Louis CK to the rescue:

I'll give you an example, okay? Like of course, of course, children who have nut allergies need to be protected, of course. We have to segregate their food from nuts, have their medication available at all times, and anybody who manufactures or serves food needs to be aware of deadly nut allergies, of course, but maybe. Maybe if touching a nut kills you, you're supposed to die. Of course not, of course not, of course not. Jesus.
I have a nephew who has that. I'd be devastated if something happened to him. But maybe, maybe if we all just do this for one year, we're done with nut allergies for ever.

So subby, what you're saying is that students put their nuts in the mouth of a Swedish school girl?

See...now I think there are people who go overboard with the nut thing and need to be put in their place. This girl just simply informed staff then put a sign on a bulletin board as a FYI. That is reasonable and doesn't warrant retaliation.

My cousins kids has severe nut allergies. He has almost died a few times from accidental injestion (mostly as a toddler, he is older and knows better now). He carries an epipen with him and knows he can't eat nuts or touch anyone that has had direct contact with nuts (i.e. kid eating a pb sandwich and doesn't wash his hands afterwards). He's been trained how to safeguard himself and the staff is aware of what to do in an emergency. You know what my cousin DIDN'T do? Be an arsehole and demand her kid's school ban nuts from the premises. In her exact words "What the hell would that accomplish? He needs to be responsible for his health. It isn't like I can demand the whole world go nut-free so his best defense is to be aware, take precautions, and use an epipen if need be." This is how normal people approach the situation. Douchebag narcissits require everyone to accomodate them and their child.

The problem is that in Europe peanut allergy is often seen as an American culture-bound syndrome, somewhere between koro and fan death on the credibility scale.

Nut allergies are grossly over diagnosed. Most of these people claiming allergies (or children whose parents claim that their kids have allergies) are just self-entitled attention whores who probably failed to make a sports team or any actual friends. Their diagnosis is a social crutch for their failings.

For the best example of this, see autism. The "disease" that used to be known as "being a nerd."

yes, there's a reason, because we thought you might get tired of the color blue

when i was a junior in high school my friends and i used to smoke joints and speculate whether or not idaho really existed since we had never been there. luckily we outgrew this silly thinking--just because you haven't encountered autistic people doesn't mean they don't exist...

Actually, medical diagnosis for this is pretty spot on. Now, if you are talking about the non-diagnosed people who believe they have an allergy, that could be closer to the truth. Still sort of questionable though. There has been a large increase in the percentage of people with the medical diagnosis in the last few decades that medical science has a few clues to what may be causing it, but still knows they do not have all the answers yet.

As the father of a child with peanut and tree nut allergies I'm pleased to see the thread populated mostly by understanding and empathetic Farkers as opposed to the trolls/assholes.
