I did know that about milk. I tried soy milk for a while, but couldn't take it. It's nasty.

You should know what I read a while back about hamburger!

Dude! Thatís totally fine with me Ďcause I am allergic to milk. You had me worried there though. I wanted to give you something to add to your mental gross archive: Mountain Dew has vegetable oil in it. Yep, read the ingredients on the side there. Thatís really not THAT gross if you think about it Ďcause we all eat vegetable oil, but it is harder now for me to take a nice refreshing gulp knowing itís all oily & stuff. Thought Iíd share.

Stay Cool

Hey Todd,

Wasn't too grossed out by the milk thing because lucky for me I don't drink milk. Now I'll probably be a bent over, hump-backed woman who shrinks at least 5 inches when I'm older from lack of calcium but I won't have had any gross cows milk.

I saw In America and I think that the girls in the movie are really sisters.

Heres a definition from Encyclopedia Brittanica:

somatic cell n (1888): one of the cells of the body 
that compose the tissues, organs, and 
parts of that individual other than the germ cells.

I must have been a cat in a past life, but I did click through all of your warnings to the milk haters site. I must say that I am not even remotely grossed out. True, if you actually sat down and thought about what milk is and where it comes from you probably wouldn't want to drink it. Still, I think some groups have an unrealistic agenda and they try to come up with the nastiest thing they can think of to get people to fall in line. As if they think through their cause people will unanimously stop eating dairy. I say milk is tasty stuff - pus, evil hormones and all! 

Although, I have a real aversion to eggs. I will use them to bake with, but I hate everything about them - the smell, the texture, the flavor, the idea - all of it. However if I like the way they tasted I would eat a fried egg or quiche or whatever anyway. I'm just a glutton that way.
