The doctor was implying that the only way my friend could get it was through eating red meat from cows. IF that's true, then how did the cow get it? Get it?

(I'll most likely get one anyway... I wonder how much you have to pay for XS?)

Sugar-sweetened soft drinks, diet soft drinks, and serum uric acid level: The third national health and nutrition examination survey - Choi - 2007 - Arthritis Care & Research - Wiley Online Library
To sum up...
"Choi's research has shown that study participants who consumed two or more servings of sugar- or fructose-sweetened soda each day had an 85 percent increased risk of developing gout, compared with participants who consumed less than one serving of sugary soda per month. Even sugary fruit juice, such as orange juice, raises the risk. "

"Trust me, you will soon enter a magical land full of delicious steakflowers, with butterbacons fluttering around over the extremely rompable grass and hillsides."
I understand your point.
I just don't think you're getting what I was saying and why it was funny. Oh well.
No, I understand what you were saying. It wasn't funny and didn't make any sense.
Also, we can see perfectly well that it's you. No need to sign your forum posts.
I was at REI yesterday picking out a pair of Merrel Trail gloves for my 6 year old son because his school will not allow him to wear his Vibram Five Fingers due to dresscode. I mentioned that to the lady and here is an approximation of the conversation that followed.
Her: "I have to agree with the school a little bit."
Me: "Huh?! Why?"
Her: "Well, kids aren't very observant or cautious of other people so he could really get hurt if someone steps on his toes."
Her: "And what if he hurts himself runing around and jumping in them? You don't know what sort of surfaces he's playing on at school."
Her: "I got my 15 year old son a pair of Vibram's and I told him he couldn't run, jump, or climb in them and he asked what he COULD do in them."
Her: "He needs to slowly work up to them, but he never wears them."
Me: "Well if he's not sprinting or distance running in them, and he spends some good time barefoot which most people do around the house these days, it shouldn't be a problem."
Her: "Well I really think that it's important for... " INTERRUPTION
My Wife: "O.k. let's go!"
My wife and I drove home talking about how the gal obviosuly didn't get it. Feet are designed to work, regular shoes don't offer much more protection against getting stepped on (most first graders aren't wearing steel toes), and she scared her son into never wearing the shoes that she spent a decent amount of money on. I just don't get it! Meanwhile she didn't seem to have any concern over the fact that despite a little extra insole cushion and a closed toebox, the Trail gloves are the same as the Vibrams.
