So why did you feel the need to use that "most likely" straw man?

First, I couldn't care less about Buck's dog or if it exists.
Second, age or residence of the dog has little to do with you being wrong. Here are the causes for a dog to eat it's excrement, again.
•Inflammatory bowel disease
•Diabetes
•Intestinal parasites
•Anemia
•Increased hunger
•Neurological disease
•Vitamin deficiency
•Malnutrition
•Thyroid disease
Abuse is so low on the list that it doesn't even qualify for a bullet point.

Third, How was what I said a Strawman other than you using it to distract from the fact that you misstated that abuse was the most likely cause for a dog to eat it's own feces?

Or are you saying that abuse is the most likely case for Buck's dog to eat it's own feces? Which would make your comment not only a misstatement but an adhom at that..

I've partaken of some rather nice micro brewery beers in the US, but the big brands are pretty nasty fare and I'd rather go without.

Buck didn't mention his dog receiving treatment for any of these conditions, just that his dog eats it's droppings.

So animal neglect which some would consider abuse.

Yep, that's it. I've been on a prednisone burst for the inflammation and am waiting to get in for a follow-up visit with my primary physician. It's much better than it was last week.
I've been on prednisone myself-- awful stuff going down, but the effectiveness is quite good.

In contrast to Thinking's experience, I found it suppressed my appetite, and I usually lost weight during a stint of that artificial hormone.

I found that getting off it was also a delicate process---at least it was for me. But the last time I needed to take any, was back in the 90's.

I found wrapping it in a miniature marshmallow alleviated the nasty taste, though.

Here's a toast* to your continuing improved good (better at least) health!

My genetics aren't so good in that direction. This whole getting old thing can be a drag.
Yeah, it can be that.

But I'm actually kinda gratified to be old enough, to be well past the whole scramble-dating thing.

People of my generation--including women-- are more practical-minded when it comes to relationships. At least, that's been my experience here--- we are old enough to recognize what we must have, and what doesn't matter at all.

:D

Hardly makes up for the creakiness of the bones, though.

.. meh.

This is because American... ahem... "beer" is not really beer, not in the ancient tradition of beer-making.

It's a kind of "soft drink with a little alcohol flavoring added" thing.

So far removed from the original beer process it's something else entrely.

Not unlike what Coke has become-- it's origins were a mild delivery system for cocaine. When that became restricted, it was reformulated into the empty shell it is today.

Pepsi is just a copycat of that reformulated nothing.

Somewhere along the way, someone thought of adding caffeine, to give it a minor functionality once again.

A very smart move, I think.

:D

Yes, most microbrews have returned to the roots of hand-made beer making.

Many are strict with using only organic ingredients too.

Makes for some nice beer that tastes like beer.

Once you ratchet the process up to mass production? You lose the whole reason for making it in the first place, IMO.

And you simply cannot sample it as it goes along, subtly adjusting it's flavor as it slowly turns into real beer.

Mass production forces you to resort to brute-force methods, and strict formulas.

Which leave the result as flavorless as ...

... artificial sweetener.

It will soon be beer festival time at my local. 40 barrels of different beers to try, all from smaller breweries.

I know exactly what it means:-

You are uneducated and constantly complain whenever an atheist here says something that goes over your head.

Which in reality is all the time.

The bottom line is many atheist here have tried to teach you about Math, Physics and Biology. You just refuse to learn.

So uneducated twit stop complaining get off your butt and start studying.

Believe me, during a serious hemorrhoid attack, you will do *anything* to relieve the pain. I had them bad enough that I needed a hemorrhoidectomy. Let's just say that a 6" needle *there* was a better alternative than what I was experiencing. After the in-office surgery, I had another flare-up and needed to have emergency surgery in the hospital. The recovery was literally the worst pain I have had in my life.
Now, I have not had a kidney stone or (obviously) given birth, but my wife said that birth looked better than what I went through. So, if I was around 3000 years ago and someone suggested a nice, cool shark liver as a relief? No problem!
I guess you won't be taking it in the trunk anymore? Ya shoulda known better, genius.
