    I'm not sure if that's how they do it. But god would I want to be one of the researchers.

    How does one test for allergies? I assume it would be some sort of scientific process, but in my mind it's just a couple of guys in lab coats, a patient strapped to a chair and a box full of random objects.

    "Okay, lets try this cat."
    "Nope, nothing."
    "Peanut-butter"
    "No."
    "Okay, what if we smeared peanut-butter on the cat and..."

    That's more or less correct.

    They stab you in the arm in various spots with a minor amount of whatever chemical they are trying to get a reaction out of, then they wait a day and see what happens.

    No joke, this is what they do.

    Turns out they didn't know I was allergic to grass! And they use a lot of different grass samples in the test!

    Luckily for me, the only allergy I have (that I know of) is to a surgical anesthetic.

    That was...an interesting surgery.

    DDV - D:



    I'm allergic to a lot of fresh fruits (cherries, strawberries (only a little bit, now), mangoes, peaches, plums, nectarines, sometimes cantaloupe and honeydew melon) . If they're cooked, though, I'm fine.

    Also cats...but my roommate's cat may be building my immunity :D

    Wow... I would expect there would be a lot of chemicals to test too; how long did it take?

    Man I would hate to have that allergy...

    We've been in a blizzard for the last couple days. The snow is over my car. I now commute to work via snowshoe.

    I thought we were so close to spring too.

    Actually, the surgery part of it was pretty cool. I was awake and aware, but paralyzed, and I couldn't feel any pain. I got to see my own lung.

    e: After they closed me up though, I got really hot and started vomiting everywhere. Lost a few of my staples and ended opening the incision on my leg because of it. The incision being to my femoral artery for a catheter. Fun times. Fun times.

    Aaaaaaugh, bizarre. D: Did that freak you out at all? Did you feel your lung being moved around [edit] I just assumed that it'd have to be moved around somehow for you to see it from the supposed angle I'm imagining your head being....[/edit]

    That's not an experience I would describe as "pretty cool", I would be more inclined to illustrate it as a "waking nightmare of titanic proportions"

    I could feel the movement itself, but beyond that I was entirely numb.

    And it was pretty scary at the time. But now I look at it as a unique experience.

    It seemed him in a lot of parts but I don't know it just felt different from his other movies, maybe because it didn't deal with flight theme he usually kept with his movies.

    Wow those are creepy.

    But hey, I'm just saying I liked Ponyo just as much as Spirited Away which most would agree is top tier. And I definitely liked it better than Howls Moving Castle, which I didn't like that much.

    Man those candles are creepy.
