Ok, following on from the precedent set by QGV - I've decided to ask you all to refrain from discussing an issue which personally upsets me in the hope that I might not be subjected to distress in the future by reading about it in this forum. It's cheese. Yes, cheese. I would be very grateful if you could all avoid the word and the subject as I find it very hurtful and offensive. I had a very bad experience with a slab of Gouda a while ago and I rather forget all about it - and you lot mentioning cheese brings it all back. There.

Thank you for your sensitivity. Now, as I've aired my pet taboo, please feel free to air yours in this thread, then by all of us reading about everyone else's taboo we can all bear them in mind when posting and then we can see if we have anything left to talk about. [Smile]

i hope that the people on these boards are sensitive, compassionate people who will respect my feelings.

i have a phobia about anything to do with sex, romance or indeed any human social interactions.

please in future, respect me as a person, and refrain from posting these disugting threads, that attempt to acknowledge that people get sticky together. **shudder**

Post-it notes. Damn things scare the bejesus out of me. When I get to my desk in the morning, I swear they've multiplied overnight. Then there's the staring. The relentless, eerie staring. I know they're up to something. I think they're plotting how to take me down.

So, please, no mention of post-it notes.

The Windows operating system offends me on a deep spiritual level. I know there are a few Windows apologists on this board, but please discuss it only in private for the sake of my mental and spiritual health.

Well, if ya can't beat em, join em . . .

Okay, I had a really bad experience with a Lean Cuisine TV dinner when I was younger. The potatoes had to be cardboard, for one thing . . . I - I can't even remember, it was such a traumatic experience. There is absolutely NOTHING UNHEALTHY in those things!! I can't believe it! No wonder it tastes like styrofoam convered with a little flavoring.

*GASP!* THAT'S IT!! They put styrofoam in all their meals, so that when people microwave the dinners, they get cancer from the irradiated styrofoam!!! Oh, I'm sorry, I can't talk about this - it - it's just brings all the pain back.

Did you check the box? It probably said "Display Unit. Not for human consumption." You know, sort of like those fake computers they have at radio shack and the fake people they have wearing clothes at Sears?

It's ok. We all make mistakes. You just have to get back up on that horse and eat TV dinners. Or something like that.

Hello, my name is Coffee_geek, and I am terrified of nondairy creamer.

<<How, exactly, do you pronounce _?>>

*brutally slaughters the <<>> fellows of yesterpost*

Seriously! Nondairy creamer is Not Natural. It's an oxymoron. How can it be CREAMer and not contain CREAM? I'm seriously worried about this. In adition to it's obvious logical impossibilities, it tastes Horrible. *shudder*

And whatabout that gooey center of Hot Tamales? After the spicy outer shell, there's just this jelly-like, clear substance. I don't know what it is, but it can't be natural. I suspect that it just sits in your colon, undigestable, until you die. BEWARE!

Seeming and Dreaming,
Coffee

No, I didn't figure that out until I started eating real people and computers.

Hi, my name is Oz, and I have a fear of small children.

Coffee will scoff at me becuase we both consume babies, but the fact is, I think that small children are of an evil race. Think about it! How they look at us with their cute, adoring eyes, just WAITING to POUNCE on us and SUCK OUT OUR LIFE JUICES!

*shudders*

A railgun is good defense from insidious small children. Watch out! Especially if you teach pre-school...

I actually kinda like little kids; especially when they're too young to do much damage . . . mostly anything before age 2. A friend of mine has a 1-year old sister, and she is one of my favorite little kids ever! I introduced her to the basics of operating a CD player (and she showed me how to take it apart). Cute kid.

Then the little kids go through this destructive stage, starting somewhere between 1 1/2 and 3, and going up through about 5 or 6. After that, then they're cute again for a couple years, but they then start to think that they're growing up and they're cool, and that's when they can be the most annoying. After they get to be 14-ish, then they're good again. But wait, then the kids have to be teenagers . . . and that whole period can vary according to the kid.

What a coincidence! I consume babies as well for their precious proteins, giving me long thick hair.

"Buffet?"

I'm Patrick and I have a fear of mushrooms. Come on people! It's fungus - the same category as mold!!! I don't see people consuming mold... This whole discussion of eating little children... it's actually less discusting than eating mushrooms. Well, not really.

I also have a fear of pointy objects. They're all out there to poke my eyes out. Oh, the horror... [Eek!]

Have you ever participated in any of those cheese rolling contests? You know, the ones where they roll the wheel of cheese down a steep hill and see if they can get to the bottom without breaking a leg? (Just curious) [Smile]

By the beard of Peter Gabriel! Okay, I find the following things offensive and wish that people would refrain from using them: D*ck van Dyke's first name, the words octopus and sextuplet, Bill Clinton's nickname, Nixon's nickname, anything to do with the TV shows Baywatch, S*x in the City, the Anna Nicole Smith Show, or Barney. Especially Barney.

Seriously, though, I didn't find the "annual check-up" joke that dirty, even if you did know the double entendre of "beaver". Granted, though, I have permanent residence in the gutter. [Eek!] [Roll Eyes] [Big Grin]
