> Done!

Doesn't editing the poll reset the votes? Or did they fix that little system quirk?

Fixed by the look of it.

You should try the lactose enzyme pills. They work well for me. I read somewhere that only soft cheeses like brie have lactose and that hard cheese like parmesan are fine. Even a cheddar should be alright, if it's really lactose that's your problem.


Yeah, I spent three years going back and forth to the hospital before they got the diagnosis right. Rolling Eyes

You're right Janet, I do use the pills and they're great most of the time. Thing is, with some stuff like soft cheese and double cream, they just don't work and it's so damn painful I nearly faint and am out-of-order for the next few days. Although, I've just found out that it could be my gallbladder that's playing up, so I'm looking to get that removed.

Oh, and just in case anyone thinks I'm just a wimp, I sat quietly for four hours when I had my arm tattooed, the tattooist had to ask me for a break. That pain was nothing compared to the Lactose effect!

How strange, this is rapidly turning into a medical thread, sorry guys! Embarassed

Thanks for the Kittens option, by the way. Thumbs Up

I feel your pain, literally. I have lactose intolerance and a garlic intolerance/allergy that makes me pray for death everytime I have anything with garlic, especially if it's garlic powder. My doctor has given me antispasmodics to fight the cramping, but it isn't much help. The dairy item I miss most is milkshakes, the American kind with ice cream. The pills can handle either milk or ice cream, but the two together is more than they can handle.

I've lost my marbles over the World Cup. I don't have cable TV and the so-called American Broadcast Company will only show weekend games, so I get to polish up my Spanish skills and watch them for free on UHF (with a bit o' fuzz) on Univision. I'm "working from home" a surprising number of days these past weeks. Game 1 @ 6 am, Game 2 @ 9 am and Game 3 @ noon. Can it be like this forever?

Would you believe that I never played "the other football" (or saw it played) until I was in my late teens, and only then as part of a Phys Ed class? Where was this game when I played sports? I had wrestling and football (the one where a foot rarely touches the ball) and I hated both.

If you've got a decent Broadband connection, you can watch games live on the BBC website...

Not sure if it's all of them, I suspect it's just the ones that the BBC are broadcasting themselves (there's roughly a 50/50 split between BBC and ITV).

Don't waste time watching the second half of any England match though (unless you cannae sleep), the Ikea salesman is clearly clueless.

I haven't been able to get the BBC site to work for me. I think they blocked it for non-UK urls as they often do. At least the last time they blocked me they had the decency to explain the reason.

That would make sense actually - they probably only have the rights to broadcast within the UK, so they've probably blocked non-UK IP addresses.

Ahhh, I'm afraid I was just excercising my rights under Forum Rules, section 46, subsection 94, paragraph K, rule 64, part VIII, namely :

"Moderators have the right to add the option 'Kittens' to any poll, should they see fit to do so."

I'm currently campaigning to have this rule changed, so that every poll *MUST* include 'Kittens' as a choice - something which I'm sure you will agree is only sensible in these times.

I think this was the most torn I have been about a poll on here to date, but in the end the kittens won over the cheeese.



Although I do like cheese a lot...wait...cheese...kittens....
..cheese ...erm...can I change my vote? Can I vote twice?


Sad
