I used to drink soy milk for a few weeks back in 2002 - didn't feel like myself.  Now I drink Kefir and fat free milk.

When I used to lift weights regularly, I drank lots of OJ, Milk and water.

It's just the thought of eating Rocky!
I haven't had Rocky or Bullwinkle, but I've had a few of their family members!  Mmmmmm.  I've also had Eddie Emu and Randy Rattlesnake (OK ok, there's really no Eddie Emu or Randy Rattlesnake AFAIK).

Do soya beans have udders?
Only when someone proves this to me, will I ever truly call it "soy milk."  Otherwise, it's juice or oil, depending on one's usage re: squashed beans.

Do coconuts have udders?  Yet, there is such a thing as coconut milk.

The soybean can be smashed into a milk like substance with lots of water.  Source

The old-fashioned soy milk-making process begins with a long, relaxing soak. The softened beans are then ground on a stone grinder, using massive amounts of water. The mush goes into a cloth bag, is placed under a heavy rock, and pressed and squeezed until most of the liquid runs out. The soy paste is then boiled in fresh water. Large amounts of filthy scum rise to the surface and are carefully removed.13,14

The modern method is faster, cheaper--and retains the scum. It speeds up the presoaking phase with the use of an alkaline solution, skips the squeezing and skimming steps, uses common tap water, and cooks the soy paste in a pressure cooker. The speed comes at a cost: the high pH of the soaking solution followed by pressure cooking destroys key nutrients, including vitamins and the sulfur-containing amino acids. The process also decreases the quality of the amino acid lysine and may produce a toxin, lysinoalanine.15 Although levels of lysinoalanine in soy milk are low, valid safety concerns remain.

Like I said earlier, a lot of controversial topics have accelerated the drive to 3 x 105.   ;D
Accelerated the drive to 3x105, and accelerated the drive toward moderator madness...

Does that mean there will be a tournament between moderators (e.g. Basketball, Yahtzee, Ping Pong, GuitarHero).

There's no reason to be mad.  :)

Will you stop trying to impose your agenda on Twitter?
My agenda is all pervasive. There is nothing I say, do, or write that is not infused with my agenda. Even these three sentences are filled with my agenda.

That's truly impressive... I've tried to get my agenda in more than my usual 15% of sentences, but I haven't broken through yet.  Any tips?

My first tip would be to get yourself labeled by ialmisry as someone who has a hidden agenda in every post you make. Then it immediately becomes true.

What a wonderful way to relieve the purple demon madness than throwing around the dice whether real or online.

My next favorite choice is ScrabbleTM.
You know, I love Scrabble, but I hate always losing to my sister and her BA in English.

I think I'm getting close, in all the EP-bashing and -subverting threads...

What bugs me is when someone thinks of a 5-letter word that uses a couple of high scoring tiles, and one tile in the word lands on a triple-word-score square.  I had an opponent once score something like 48 points on that word. :p

Memorize all the 2 letter words.  You can do it....
Eh, with the online versions you don't need to...

Yikes.  I feel your pain (or is that just heartburn?).

115 and counting.  The stirring debates, while exhausting patience and whatnot, are indeed pushing the forum toward it's next big accomplishment.

Yeah, I've learned never to play Scrabble against a professional writer. :p

Great idea.  Wish I had learned that lesson long ago!

(82 and counting) This milestone seems to be coming with less fanfare than the others... No big count-downs, no great anticipation... Bummer.

This is starting to feel like counting down the seconds to the New Year while the ball drops over Times Square.

And when I tried to post this the first time the forum had the pip

10/3/2002 - 1st Post
12/30/2005 - 100,000th
01/15/2008 - 200,000th
03/19/2009 - 300,000th

That's quite an acceleration in posting: 3 1/4 years to 100,000; 2 years to another 100,000; now, just 1 1/6 years to another 100,000.
