You originally said that the world is not better off now than it was during the cold war. Now your posts seem to be saying that you just meant that life in Russia during communism wasn't as bad as it was made out to be in the west. Of course it wasn't. Also, I wouldn't call the US out for being a homophobic houses and stones kinda thing.

My first thought upon reading that was also "there is no way you were really alive during the cold war". This is the internet, everything is the fault of the USA. We would be living in a perfect utopia if only one of the more enlightened countries, like Russia (try reading that with a straight face), were in charge.

People in the comments to that story, before it started flaming up, say that lab mice are absolutely not fed the same things they were 40 years ago. I am, of course, not taking that as the truth, but I would like to know more about that if any /.ers know about this. That is the best point in the whole story, IMO

I pretty much lived on beans for a solid 10 years. I still eat a lot of them, but not twice a day every day. For a while, I had the most atrocious gas you can imagine. In both quality and quantity. Roommate at the time told me he was moving out if I didn't go see a doctor. Needed a roommate, so I did.

Me: "What can I do about having really bad gas all the time?"
Doctor: "Fart more. It won't hurt you."

I walk in the door, let one rip and state "Doctor's orders!"

Also, along with gut flora I think it has something to do with some people being weird about where they shit. There are a lot of people that just won't drop a deuce anywhere but a few "safe" locations, and they end up walking around holding it in. I stopped being so particular and went wherever I was when I needed to...unless it was the trainspotting bathroom or something....and I never have gas anymore. :*(
