Yeah, DG, I do miss your old group back on A|N.

(But it's "I don't mind YOUR pointing that out..." ;) "Pointing that out" is a gerund; it functions as a noun, and it must take a possessive pronoun. Otherwise, what you've got is a usage error known as a fused participle.)
Comment by Don on November 30, 2010 at 5:46pm
Not that it matters much, but kindly allow a language guy to point out here that "aggravate" primarily means to make worse, or to burden (to add weight to), not to annoy. The word has been one of the more commonly misused words in English for some time, and my raising this sort of objection is, I recognize, a lost cause. (It can mean to irritate in the rather minor sense of inflammation or infection--which suggests an injury made worse.) The language does evolve, of course, sometimes in aggravating ways.

Aggravating! that is a word I could probably make much more use of. Yes when things we generally already know make a new mark on psyche... I've had an aggrating year!

ya what is more surprising is the number of atheists who have enshrined doctors as our new gods... it took doctors two years of testing my poop for parasites before they finally clued in that I was lactose intolerant!!!

Doctors are quite gollible by nature, medical school favors students with high rote memory skills over skepticism and logic. Doctors will repeat whatever the pharmaceutical rep who dropped by their office on any given day to give them free samples that day says...

Poor Mouse...


A mouse in a loaf of Hovis Best of Both bread which was bought by Stephen Forse, from Kidlington, Oxfordshire, purchased online from Tesco, through a store in Bicester. Mr Forse was sickened when he found a dead mouse in his loaf of bread while making sandwiches for his children. The father-of-two thought the bread was just discoloured but on closer inspection saw the object was covered in fur

@Sydni - Odd the coffee report, about a year and half ago, an opposite study came out, indicating that cafeine caused blood sugar to rise (not related to any added sugar to the cup) "just like diabetes", in the same way that sleep deprivation tests cause temporary diabetes conditions. I'll have to search for that study.

Just goes to prove... nutritional studies just contradict themselves year after year for decades now, they seem completely untrustworthy. It makes me think that there are research biases based on funding.
