I have learned much from my time here. Here I would like to let new people learn a little before they post.

1. Be opinionated. If you are on the fence about an issue your opinion doesnt matter, everything in health is 100% black or white, period.

2. Putting Dr. in your name makes you a doctor. Look at me! (Google the name..) My "credentials" have been called into question multiple times by people too lazy to use google and see its a joke.

3. Anyone who disagrees with you is "insert here". Generally if you make a discussion about anything, say milk, spanking, obesity, if they disagree with you they are always milk company, spankers who are obese themselves. Its impossible someone just geniunely disagrees.

4. Humor is frowned upon, if you joke you suddenly have no credibility whatsoever to anyone.

5. Conspiracies are real. There was a 3rd gunman on the grassy knoll, the black helicopters are real, and "they" really are out to get you.

6. Making extreme proclamations without back up is perfectly fine. You have no burden of proof, it is everyone else's burden to prove you wrong, otherwise it must mean you're 100% right.

7. The amazon forums are very serious business. This is the 'go to' place for the world's health needs so dont forget everything posted here is only the beginning of a massive movement elsewhere, it starts on ends in...uh....well.....yeah.

8. Highlighting RANDOM words in ALL caps is the ONLY way to get your point ACROSS.

Well maybe they wouldn't if you would stop crying about it and DO something about it! Exercise and a healthy diet WOULD HELP regardless of what you say, but all you do is say "I can't, I can't" so people pity you! Once you show people you're at least making effort, maybe they'll start caring. Hearing that all you do is dream about eating greasy fast food does not make people feel pity.

Then stop whining about this genetic disease that you don't have a name for. You're officially worse than Isabella, and I don't even need to be skinny to say that. If you wanna be big and unhealthy, that's up to you. But stop justifying it by saying you can't change it. You can, you're just too lazy. In one breath you're like "Oh pity me I have a genetic disorder." Then in the next you're like "Pssh I like being bigger!" Make up your mind. Why does it matter if you have a genetic disorder if you don't want to lose weight? You drive me crazy, and that's pretty bad, I'm Bipolar!

I'm not calm? Oh, well thanks. I'm glad you know that, because I didn't. What would YOU call all your pity whining? You don't wanna share your condition or anything, but you sure don't mind pushing it on other people for pity. Rightttt. Go eat another big greasy cheeseburger mmm. That'll help.

Awesome! Especially number 3 and 4!

Posted on Jan 20, 2010 1:22:09 PM PST
Oh dear. It's apparent that someone is taking number 4 literally :-/

I would add that any link of any kind is a "source" and should be believed automatically. There is no exception to the rule. As well if you haven't read any post in a year long thread you are forbidden from posting in it. The starter of the thread is always right in every case and can easily prove why if you read the link which is always conclusive and cannot be stated as otherwise.

The only trolls in this forum post their full contact information on their personal page and/or posts and continually ask that people contact them. Medical Quackery on DVD - The World of Fake Potions, Lotions, Pills, Formulas, Patent Medicines, Mechanical Devices, Snake Oil Salesmen and More to Improve Health
This link might help though.

Hey, directions, you left mine out: The Hibernation Diet

Just a spoon full of honey makes the medicine go down, \\\\\\\\....... the medicine go down (repeat).
Just a spoon full of honey................

Oh, yes, and always wear your mask here, otherwise the whole world will be suddenly aware that you exist. You will be a hero/heroine or a villain overnight (terrorist are not encouraged to frequent these haunts). You will be either famous or notorious none the less, because every person in the world reads these post looking for information about YOU!

Always sling mud, too, as that is the only way to lose ground (mass). Indeed I lost ten pounds yesterday and my readers didn't even get soiled!

Q: What is health anyway, physical? emotional? mental or economic?

A: A healthy person is one who pretends to be healthy and has top line health insurance and myriad other insurances not for his/her own comfort, but for the comfort of those less fortunate than s/he. Good health is a term only to be defined by those who are honest and worthy of their position.

If anyone is sick, we will pray for you, but you should consider reading and posting in one of the threads aimed at humour.

Do you know what innuendo is? ........... a new Italian suppository.

Sadness to all. Oh, no, I just realized, all of you have your mask on upside down!

9. If one has any scientific education or knowledge of biochemistry that does not support another posters unfounded assertions then one's character is automatically dubious. Science has no place here if it disproves a conspiracy theory. After all, doesn't "big pharma" pay you to sit around all day and monitor and refute every hackneyed idea that comes across the interwebs or something?

10. If you believe spanking is a viable form of discipline then you are Satan incarnate. Only evil people abuse their kids in such a manner and the kids themselves will grow up to be horrible, horrible people.

11. Overweight people will prove the downfall of society and bring about the zombie apocalypse. The Mayans predicted it, so you can't argue with it.

12. Vegetarians are actually cool and friendly. Whodathunkit?

Re genetics:
"Fortunately, it appears that in most cases genetic defects only matter when our actions produce chronic inflammation. What we eat is far more important than our genetics in determining if we are going to suffer from allergies, autoimmune diseases, degenerative diseases, various forms of mental illness or cancer. If we eat to avoid inflammation, in most cases it doesn't matter how genetically defective we are."

Another long whining post protecting posters from gasp... horrors.... other posters? Ricky, this is a public forum and the INTERNET. Who cares if posters are opinionated, lazy, sour pusses, conspiracy believers, like to make proclamations or think they're part of a massive movement?

Lighten up dude. It's gonna be OK.

"All the King's Men says: Lighten up dude. It's gonna be OK."
That was the point of the thread.
"Isabella, the Chic-Geek says:
I think we need a mental health forum."
There are several. I started a thread in one and it (and all the other threads in that forum) got spammed up by the same poster. My best advice is don't take life too seriously and ignore everyone's good intentions lol.
How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
seems to be the point of some of the people who give "advice" here and they are quite successful lol. Anyway, I'm going to get a sicilian pizza with pepperoni and extra cheese and see if my arteries are able to withstand the cholesterol overload and double bill the government for the health care required just for the hell of it lol...

Posted on Jan 21, 2010 10:14:19 PM PST
Oh Isabella! Are you an expert on mental health too? We know you'd be there giving out advice and telling us the truth of how it's all our fault!
