The Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse Has Moved.

My old website can be found at I am no longer updating the site, so there will be dead links. The static information provided by me is still sound.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or or or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

I suffer the universal malady of spam and adbots, so I moderate comments here. That may mean you'll see a long lag before I remember to check the site and approve them. Despite the gap, you'll always get your say. I read every single one, and every legitimate one gets posted.

The Silly Season: News for a Slow Weekend

As always, the straight-faced weird stuff comes via press release.

San Diego (PRWEB) May 22, 2009 -- Two Robots named W-E and E.V.E. are among the 170 registered attendees for San Diego Mensa Regional Gathering, which is being held at the Hilton Mission Valley over the memorial day weekend.

"Mensa regulations permit non-members to attend a regional gathering as guests," said LaRae Bakerink, president of San Diego Mensa. "W-E and E.V.E. were registered for the RG as guests by a local member. Mensa takes no stand on politics, religion or social issues, including any stand on legal rights of intelligent robots."

"I am still very confused on what food arrangements I need to make for these robots," said Joan Johnson, the hospitality chair for the San Diego Mensa Regional Gathering. "As is, we have challenges with all those specialized diet needs we need to cater to -- vegetarians, vegans, diabetics, lactose or gluten intolerant, those who hate mayonnaise, and now I need to worry about robots."

You feed mechanical men oil, of course, which is plant-based. Robots are therefore vegans. See how easy that was?
