jeez, really? people are still like that out there? and he'd assume I'm going to get herpes and AIDS and eventually get morbidly obese with diabetes by 30 and have 5 kids by 25 because I'm blonde and female. one things for sure-- he'll be expecting us both to be killer sandwhich makers and get agoraphobic if we leave the kitchen. step one, OP, we should band up and stake out in the neighbors-behind-him's backyard and study his habits, daily rituals, commit them to perfect memory and start trolling his house. like, throw flaming bags of shit through the window at the exact time daily he opens one... also, we should glue ebergizer-powered vibrators of embarrassing style all over his vehicle, that sounds good... and I feel like getting a bulk supply of eggs. I don't know what we'll use them for exactly, but something tells me eggs will come in handy. you in?
@94 - the internet knows no bounds. besides, you'll have to understand that my friend has been on "the art of trolling" all day and I guess my last comment is bona fide evidence that ... well, damned shit brainwashed me :/ IT'S TAKING EVERYTHING IN MY POWER NOT TO SAY IT... "U MAD BRO? " GAAAAAAH!!!!
Speaking of ignorance...does anyone here realize we're the only mammals that drink the milk from another species? That we drink cow's milk because they're docile and produce in abundance? That cow's milk in its raw, unpasteurized state is not good for us and can make us ill? That in nature, animals wean their young from milk by rejecting them in order to teach them to find nourishment? That not every culture is as milk driven as we are? That a whole lot of people are lactose intolerant or sensitive because our bodies aren't designed for long term milk drinking? That the skeletons of our ancestors before the days of cow milk reflect very little osteoporosis? I fully expect to be "thumbed down" for this, but before anyone spews about ignorance, try looking at the scientific journals documenting that milk from our mothers is necessary in infancy only. Lactose intolerance and tolerance DOES have a lot to do with heritage and our bodies evolving to accept milk. Think about it. Would you drink cat/dog/horse/rat/raccoon/etc. milk? We're socialized to accept milk as good and necessary. Nature...NATURE says otherwise.
I have said this myself. Why oh why we think milk is great i will never know. it isn't even that great for calcium. Cow. goat and I think sheep are the three milks we drink in adulthood but ask most to drink human milk in adulthood and they throw a hairy fit. Weird wierd world we live in. On saying that I dont think i could do without cheese which we wouldnt have without our weird obsession with milk.
127- thanks for the bio/history lesson but it's all common knowledge not trying to insult u cause ur pretty cute. Oh and special thanx to Louise pasteure for making that amazing shit drinkable I love milk and cheese. Never heard of the stereotype of black ppl being lactose intolerant tho imma ask some my black friends and see cause ive confirmed a few as follows: Grape soda they love that shit Watermelon they love that shit too Fried chicken goes without saying who doesnt love fried chicken Fried chicken and waffles well duh two awesome foods together
127- raw milk is not bad for you. If you drink milk, assuming its from a small farm and not a factory farm full of animals pumped full of hormones and antibiotics... Raw milk is actually healthier than pasteurized. Raw milk being banned is a lot more about corporate interests and keeping the little guy out then our health, just as an FYI.
#155 Your ignorance is showing, you might want to cover that up. I'm Black and I hate watermelon with a passion. I don't like grape anything really, grape is just a nasty flavor to me...fried chicken is okay, but I don't love it. Stop stereotyping, it's extremely ignorant.
127-Many (dogs, cats, etc.) animals will happily lap up milk. They just lack the ability. Being at the top of the food chain has certain advantages. Food developed along side cultures. Certain cultures adapted and adapted to a ready source of nutrients. Being able to digest that source of nutrients certainly seems like an advantage over others that cannot. I'm not going to say that this makes those cultures superior though.
Yeah milk is unnatural! *sips coke* and god knows anything cave men didnt eat is bad for u! (steak, yogurt, clean water, pizza, almost all vegetables, corn, bread, and juice) The thing is no other animal cooks food. Should we not? No other animal does math either. This wud be a bad time to start acting like dogs... It is the modern age we have protein powder for our physical health and omega 3s for our mental health. We take millions of health supplements daily and live longer than ever. We can now eat bacon without contracting a plague so i say progress is progress. Milk is healthy and, though more humans are lactose intolerant than know it, it is healthy and tastes good.
It's not exactly a stereotype...I've read somewhere that a lot of black people are simply because their ancestors (Africans) didn't drink much milk, so their systems aren't really as developed for it, as oppose to Europeans, who historically drank a lot of it. Based on what someone said above I guess it is the same with Asians, not much milk in their diets historically. On another note, thank God I'm not lactose intolerant. I'd hate to go through life with no milk, ice cream, pizzas, I couldn't even enjoy a cheeseburger. Sorry for you, OP.
81-No. That's like saying "Well, saying all black people like watermelon isn't really stereotypical, because their ancestors blah blah blah ignorance blah blah." It's still a stereotype, regardless. Not all black people are lactose intolerant. Period. End of story.
Hitdude - read a little further down in the comments where I address this. The ability to produce lactase and metabolise lactose past infancy is a relatively recent development in humans. No other mammal has this ability, and many human populations don't either. It isn't a stereotype - it's true that up to 90% of some populations, including OP's, are lactose intolerant.
It depends on a person's ancestry. Lactose intolerance is fairly common. Some African groups handle milk just fine which are usually pastoral ethnic groups. And when you're talking about African Americans there are varying degrees of European genetic admixture as well. Not all Europeans are lactose tolerant. The closer you get to Scandinavian areas the higher the tolerance. And as someone stated earlier it has more to do with adapting to a particular area. Colder regions have more trouble growing crops so during harsh winters they subsisted with dairy products and meat. In North America Native Americans tend to be lactose intolerant because they descend from people who did not eat dairy products at all. They've done studies that show Native Hawaiians tend to be healthier with they stick with a traditional Hawaiian diet because again the American diet is based off European standards which is less compatible with their digestive systems. In a nutshell Black folks being lactose intolerant is not surprising however there are plenty who can digest dairy to the point it's not uncommon.
No Jasmine, it's called a statistic. Your family obviously has the gene that causes lactase persistence. Most black families don't. For every black family that has it, there will be 9 that don't. It's nothing derogatory, so calm down. I'm not black, yet I'm lactose intolerant.
It actually has more to do with that not a whole lot grows in northern europe so the people there had to evolve to handle dairy or they would starve. The rest of the world didn't really have that problem so not being able to break down lactose never became a problem.
There is an evolutionary explanation for this people. Most people on the planet stop producing lactase when they are young so they can no longer break down lactose. If your ancestors depended on dairy to survive the populations they were from adapted tolerance (those without the mutant gene died, so it became more common). Some people in Africa depend on dairy, most don't. Most people of European descent do.
Some people can be a little intolerant...but this guy's just ignorant. :)
I read that it is unusual for people to be able to digest cow's milk and dairy after a certain age. And that lactose intolerance is the norm. Humans were meant to consume human breast milk as babies not from a cow and that's the reason so many people are lactose intolerant to dairy.
did you grow up in a home where those brutal cow/pig/chicken living conditions/butchering videos were a common topic? no fast food? no harry potter or pokemon (it's satanic!) either right? you probably have a thing against the people next door because they don't go to your church. homeschooled? DEAR GOD WHY CANT I PUT MY FINGER ON THE SOURCE OF THIS RETARDATION?! wtf o.o you don't... it can't be! NO BUTTER ON YOUR TOAST?!?! *self-destructs. can't handle this madness.*
Lol, pasteurization doesn't take the lactose out if milk. It makes sense that people are lactose intolerant after a certain age because milk evolved as infant food to help them get the nutrients and fat and antibodies they need, and after you reach adulthood, you don't need mothers milk anymore, so it would make sense that the body would stop or slow down the production of the enzymes that break down lactose in the digestive tract making it harder to digest. However, if you continue to drink milk after infancy, you probably won't stop making these enzymes, and because like someone said, we as a species have been drinking cow's milk as adults for a long time, it could be that we have adapted to not getting rid of these enzymes anymore in adulthood. I haven't researched this, but I would hypothesize that a lot of adults do slow down the production of lactose enzymes probably due to some gene and that gene gets expressed more in some than in others, or that gene only appears in some people. It would be a cool thing to do a study on, I'll have to look it up.
nag. shed have to bust out paper bag #1 - YOLOLOLOL face. then, after his initial WTF moment, bag #2 u mad? then, put bag #3 on his head- MOTHER OF GOD...! then throw bag of shit, on fire, at him so the bag on his head catches. if his IQ is what I THINK it is, he'll run in circles screaming, dying, unable to think of pulling off flaming face -bag and we will have pulled off the greatest troll ever.
You live in Cali. Take your stupid neighbor to the Museum of Tolerance. Maybe they can edu-ma-cate him. Otherwise, take a trip to Milwaukee -- you'll find a lot of black people enjoying awesome cheese!
