Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

I thought celiac disease was genetic, but I could be totally wrong on that. Also thought the cilantro thing is genetic. Not sure about shell fish, but isn't that deadly, regardless?

They just do that to entice you to buy booze for them. Don't do it.

You should try the peanut butter store where the dogs lick you better.

This is a pretty dark joke for someone who once took a picture of his dog from the toilet.

If I'm a restaurant owner or someone hosting people for dinner, and I've read up on what is required to make someone with food issues comfortable, and then the person with the special requirement has seconds on "food that would make them sick", I wonder why I bothered. OK, we carefully cleaned one side of the kitchen. We used separate utensils. We carefully didn't mix any ingredients. Oh, you like the gluten full desert? That's fine, but it is basically saying that all the work that went beforehand was a waste of time.

Maybe it is just a Boulder thing, but it seems like 10%-20% of people who would show up somewhere have a "food allergy". It is described as being like a shellfish allergy -- straight to the hospital if not honored. My eyes tell me that for the vast majority, it is a preference. For the person who truly needs the special food handling to not be horribly sick, it seems a disservice. Just like for the person who truly needs the dog. At some point the rest of us think everyone is gaming the system.
Well neither celiac nor lactose-intolerance are allergies.

I had a roommate in college who had celiac. You knew it was legit because no one else even knew wtf gluten was at the time, but he was actively avoiding it (this was 2006).

He'd still come to mcdonald's with us and have a burger or something occasionally, he'd just accept the consequences of spending the rest of the night in the bathroom.

The vast, vast majority of gluten-avoiders are full of **** though. And studies have shown that gluten-intolerance does not exist outside of celiac disease. Yet there are millions of people claiming intolerance without being diagnosed with celiac.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

I think it's fine to say you're trying to avoid gluten. (Or dairy. Or carbs. Or meat.) Just don't claim you have a worse problem than you do.

If someone says, "My god will strike me down if any meat product touches my lips," I'll Yelp a vegan restaurant and call to make sure their restrictions are met.

If someone says, "I try to stay away from meat," I'll Yelp a vegan restaurant but not call.

I know it's a few years old now, but the gluten conversation reminded me of this video:

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

I saw this hand at my table yesterday.

MP limps, SB calls, BB checks.
Flop: K88

SB immediately mucks. BB looks at the board and also mucks. As the pot is being pushed to the MP limper, he looks confused. SB says "the flop was too high for my cards".

MP shows his hand ... 86s.
