        http://www.glutensolutions.com/autism.htm
        WHEAT GLUTEN and casein, among other genetic dispositions
        and environment factors, may cause AUTISM.
        \_ Because before this last generation NOBODY ate wheat and
           dairy.  Jesus christ lay off on your fear of food.
        \_ "It's often suggested to remove milk first because the body will
           clear itself of milk/casein the quickest. ... It may take up to
           six months on a gluten-free diet for the body to rid itself
           of all gluten."
           Ugh, how many people actually follow through esp when almost
           everything you buy today has dairy + gluten?
           http://www.autismweb.com/diet.htm
        \-^and casein^&& CASEIN
        \_ See!  I was right.  Now I'll never develop autism.
        \_ Wait, hold on. ZERO wheat and ZERO dairy (esp. milk)? That
           is ridiculous. What are we suppose to live on, steaks and
           fruits? Ridiculous.
           \_ Especially with bees dying off and removing 1/3 of our
              food supply?
              \_ What is YOUR diet like? I'm sure it's also full of
                 wheat & dairy as well.
                 \_ And bees.
           \_ rice!  Go macrobiotic ya fat bastid
        \_ Using the TV as a baby sitter for young children is a lot more
           likely to cause autism.
        \_ Fear of food has replaced fear of evil spirits as the
           modern superstition.
           \_ I fear spiritual food.  I don't want to miss out on any fears.
              In fact, I fear missing out.

10/28   What's the proper pronunciation for "chien" in French?
        \- er how are you expecting people to tell you? roughly
           "shee-ay". dont pronounce the n unless fem form "chienne".
           i assume you arent looking for the nuanced difference between
           chien in french french vs quebec french etc. you may wish to
           watch "un chien andalou".
           \_ Thanks partha, you rule! So how do you say
              caniche or chien canne?
              \- i dont know. http://tinyurl.com/gamqr
           \_ "Un Chien Andalou"? Oh, cruel, cruel Partha.

        do they actually significantly increase your stability on ice?
        Any drawbacks? I'm trying to avoid crampons.

10/29   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hague_Conventions_%281899_and_1907%29
        Look at all the sections and declarations. I guess atomic bomb
        is totally legal because they're not covered in the chemical and
        biological warfare sections. As for launching explosives from the
        air, I guess that is perfectly legal too since they're not launched
        from balloons.
        \_ If you're really interested in the Hague and the circumstances
           surrounding it, I recommend "The Proud Tower" by Barbara Tuchman
           which has a large chapter on both conferences.  Basically, none
           of the participants were truly interested in the outcome, and
           the conference was originally called as a ploy by the Russian
           foreign minister.

10/29   Is there such a command in emacs where I can say "mark this point
        so I can roam around and then jump back immediately?"  -learning
        \_ Ctrl-SPACE to mark, Ctrl-X Ctrl-X to jump back.
        \_ Ctrl-SPACE to mark, Ctrl-X Ctrl-X to jump back.  You can do Ctrl-X
           Ctrl-X repeatedly to jump back and forth.
           \_ Thank emacs guru!!!
           \_ Is there a way to avoid the annoying highlighting?
              \- i am not sure exactly what you are seeing, but you might see
                 if the issue is the "transient-mark-mode" setting.
              \_ What type of file are you looking at (.cpp? .html? ...)  What
                 is emacs highlighting in that file?

10/29   did they ever give up looking for those coal miners?
        \_ http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/09/01/utah.mine/index.html
           The Invisible Hand squashed them flat.
           \_ The invisible hand says it's much more cost effective to
              bury those minors than to rescue them.
              \_ The Invisible Hand needs a dictionary.
                 \_ Perhaps pp is referring to a more personal matter.
                 \_ What do you mean? Did I misuse "squashed"?

        \_ Are you short GOOG $100 guy?
           \_ No, of course not.  Shorting is stupid.  Especially a company
              like GOOG that can only go up!  Sky is the limit, baby!
              \_ troll tactic: when confronted with a factual question,
                 dodge it and increase mockery.
                 \_ What dodge?  I said, "No, of course not".  Which part of
                    that was unclear?  The point is how can you even consider
                    that GOOG can go anywhere but up?  I directly answered
                    your factual question.  Only then did I mock you.  Mock!
                    Mock!  Mock!  I mocketh thee, oh ye of the public
                    education system reading skills!
                    \_ Are you GOOG short $635 guy?
                       \_ Geeze, no.  I'm not "never short anything ever bc
                          it is stupid and you'll get your wallet cleaned out"
                          guy.  I don't have to be 'short GOOG guy' to mock
                          you, though.  MOCK!
                          \_ So you are mocking someone who neither owns nor
                             shorts GOOG? Whatever trips your trigger, dude..

10/29   In mysql MyISAM table, if I do a very long read query (SELECT)
        and then do an INSERT, will that INSERT hang? I understand that
        MyISAM is non-transactional so I'm guessing the two calls are
        independent of each other?
        \_ From my understanding no.  Not unless you explicitly lock the table.
           What you get, however, is undefined.  (I'm assuming these are on
           different connections.)

10/29   How much wheat gluten exists in pasta?
        \_ I think "all of it"?  If you're avoiding wheat gluten, you have
           to avoid pasta and most bread products.
           \- you can eat barley
        \_ You could try soba noodles.  I don't know if they have gluten
           in them, but they might not.  They are also high in protein.
           \- soba is "OTAY" for non-glueten people.
        \_ It's a wheat product so "a lot" -- Rice pasta is very good.  Pasta
           Pomodoro (in San Francisco) offers gluten free pasta dishes.
        \- I dont know jack shit about cooking, but if you are interested
           in this stuff, McGee: On Food and Cooking is "the standard".
           That is where Mario Batali goes when he wants to analyze dough,
           flour etc. It has ~20pages onf gluten, different flours etc.
           I think I got my (new) copy cheep at Green Apple for <$20. --psb
           \_ $26 and change with free shipping at Amazon, and thank you
              for the recommendation. --erikred
              \- it is the standard.
