According to my aunt:

There are so many gay and "feminine" men these days because of soy in baby formula for the last few decades. This is happening as a result of "satan trying to destroy god's creation." Apparently god's creation is super manly men.

I've heard a lot of people say this and it's apparently because of some connection with estrogen-like compounds found in soy.

Everything used to be because of the government, but she was recently "born again." So now everything is the devil trying to destroy God's creation.

Also, my cousin from St Louis just barely avoiding saying the N word when talking about Ferguson. First she called everyone "thugs," then moved on to literally calling them "Ns." Dude, Just saying the letter doesn't actually make it any better.

edit: I should note that one of my aunt's oldest friends is a gay man. I feel really bad for him right now.

1. Catherine the Great wasn't russian, she was Prussian so that is not necessarily a good comparison.

"Catherine" is simply the Anglified version of "Екатерина" (Jekaterina). And it's hardly relevant that she was from Prussia, given that her original name was Sophie Auguste Friederike von Anhalt-Zerbst.

"That's not Latin!"


My brother recently spoke to me at great length about how fluoride is poison, it has no scientifically proven benefits and is essentially the government forcing fake medicine on us without our consent, and he wants to get some kind of water filtration system to filter out the fluoride from his tap water. He lives three states away from me and I don't talk to him that often so I don't know if he's succeeded yet.

Soy has large amounts of naturally occurring isoflavones which mimic estrogen in the body. It doesn't affect how much estrogen you have or turn into it, just how well your body absorbs and uses it. Doctors have pretty much agreed it shouldn't be fed in high amounts to infants, children or people with hormonal disorders (like me). It's definitely something that should be looked at if you're in those three categories, otherwise unless you're chugging a gallon or two of soy juice everyday it doesn't matter.

It's like a pulpy, sparkling orange drink (contains like 3% drink juice). It's a popular drink in France and other parts of Europe. I like it, give it a shot.

E: It's actually 12% juice and 2% pulp, just checked.

I've heard that response from colleagues in other practices, but it sounds more like STDH to me. Usually you get the "it's acid!" or "they only need it once!" with pets.

Let me start off with a basket of chips. Then move on to the pollo asado taco.

When I started my first year at uni on one of the first days I was talking with a small group of people I just met trying to make some new friends when this guy in a wheelchair rolls by. One of the girls in the group asked a question/wondered out loud "can people in wheelchairs break their legs?" There was some confused laughter when we asked her to clarify what she meant. She went on to explain "well, say they're paralysed from the waist down and they have no feeling or control of their legs at all, then, how do the legs know to break?" There was much "are you joking? you're not serious right?" She further explained "no but like, if the connection between the nerves and stuff in their legs is severed between them and the brain, then the brain can't carry messages to the legs to tell them to break right?"

Four years later and she still insists it was a completely legit question and there were plenty of others over the years which put no doubt in my mind she was being sincere.

Freshman year of college, some dude came by to talk about Islam in our (very white) dorm. He talked about Ramadan, and said that among other things, it's a reminder to treat others well.

An RA put her hand up and asked "does that apply to non-muslims as well?"
"Well, yes."
"Oh. Because, 9/11 happened in September..."

He paused and then pointed out that Ramadan shifts each year, which I suppose is the most you can teach someone like that.
