It seems that my preview function is not working this morning.

“Remora” is the word.

(cue Dean Martin singing voice)
When a fish has a disc
He attached to a ship
That’s remora

When a shark has a friend
Who sticks onto his end
That’s remora

besides the point, he was on tv and in the public eye, telling those classless jack@$$es at the Penguins, okay you dumped me, after leaving me twisting in the wind for 3 weeks, but I am going to land on my feet and go on to bigger and better things, you losers.

He was with the Penguins as a scout during the early 90s Cup period. But his record as a coach/GM makes him well suited for broadcasting.

he’s always such a creeper manhandling the players when he talks to them, and he has a .... well you know what I want to say here... for Sid, so it seemed he wanted in that locker room with all those naked Penguins. Not that there’s anything wrong with that ; )

xsboy is happy. He has no allegiance to either team, but so many of his SU teammates are Rain-jahz fans, and he said they are the most obnoxious fans on the planet, that he wants them shut up by a sweep ; ) sorry, truthy.

No offense to the soon to be family member, but has he met other Flyers fans? And don’t get me started on the bandwagon Chicago fans. Omigosh, they are the rudest bunch.

oh xsboy’s frame of reference is his teammates, he’s not opining on their fan-dom as a whole. certainly you can understand if you have friends/acquaintances who are obnox about their team and then they end up losing you feel the slightest frisson of satisfaction ::cough::soother::cough::: ; )

If a remora should happen to latch onto a nursing mom from Toad Suck, Arkansas who happens to be tossing down brewskis then she could find herself in trouble with the law.

as the comments said, beer is supposed to assist the let-down reflex for breastfeeding. I don’t like beer and never drink it, but this seems a tad over the top as far as arresting her.

seriously. how STUPID can women be? acting like self defense is an OUTRAGEOUS idea. how ICKY. OMG I want to disassociate myself from womenkind. I have never liked women much, and every day goes by I find less reason to like them.

Why not? Everything you consume works it way into the milk? Caffeine, onions, spicy foods - many women have to cut those things out because they upset the baby

It is more of the idiotic idea that you can’t use a gun for self defense - liberals and idiot women want to control everyone else rather than take any responsibility for their own safety or well being

no, I understand that is the upshot, but the flat out saying DON’T protect yourself, TEACH men how not to rape, is just LUDICROUS! what % of men rape? I don’t know stats but I really sincerely doubt that it is a high %.

I don’t know, maybe there is some diminution of alcohol content that happens during the process of turning it into milk in the body? doesn’t the alcohol content diminish/disappear when you use it to cook? heating it?

Rape has been dumbed down, like the definition of “disabled” has been. Feminists now call an unwanted “glance” rape.....so their stats of how often women are raped has gone way up! There is even an article I saw on line recently linking the new Angelina Jolie movie to rape.... something about how she wakes up in the forest after being given a potion by a man - she is different now, evil.... so she was raped by him. I’m not kidding

After watching some of the “on the street” interviews by various tv hosts, I sometimes think you should take a test before being allowed to vote.

and aren’t there MEN (or at least metrosexuals) who subscribe to these cockamamie theories also? I honestly do not understand the intense victimhood that is going on with women. I am not hideous, I have enjoyed male attention. I have NEVER felt threatened by a male in any way shape or form in my life. I have always felt myself as equal to any man and capable of dealing with any situation. I sincerely doubt that young guys are now all rapists. It also speaks to a lack of responsibility for yourself. I have never been a hobag who put myself at risk by being incapacitated by alcohol or drugs, out in the public. I KNOW they think they should be permitted to walk around naked and drunk and suffer no ill consequences, bc they are THAT stupid.

A glass of wine or a beer to help stimulate milk flow is going to have a negligible effect.

It’s benefits outweigh its potential harms.

Because you have enough sense to be willing to sacrifice for the greater good.

If men selected presidents, we would never have had Clinton or Obama.

Speaking in generalities, women look for protection and care from the gov’t in a way that men don’t. This is bad for the republic.

I wasn’t aware once a mother was nursing that it became necessary to stimulate milk flow. How about smoking pot? Wouldn’t that help stimulate milk flow too?

I agree - I never felt it was fair when a rape victim was accused of asking for it because of wearing a short skirt or whatever, but women putting themselves into a dangerous situation by being drunk or high and getting into a sexual situation then claiming it is the guys fault is just pathetic. Have some self respect and use some common sense for a change!

I never had trouble producing milk, but you do hear about women who have to stop breastfeeding bc of inadequate supply such that the baby is not satisfied or not gaining weight. They start supplementing with formula and then for SURE the supply will dwindle.

I am not aware of any research on marijuana use for this.

But it is not unheard of for nursing mothers to be recommended that glass of wine.
