In Reply To #5 If you noticed, the website referred to above was PETA sponsored (these are the folks that go into pet stores and release the animals only to have them ran over in the streets). I can assure you that they would have you starve rather than to have you eat meat or ANY animal byproduct, including milk, cheese, eggs, anything cooked in animal fat, yada yada. Personally, I've never seen a vegan that looked healthy so I'm not convinced. I'll stick to beer and steaks and die happy.

PETA is an organization with masterful skills in idiocy. Some examples:
In CT, they protested a dinner held for special olympics athletes, because lobster was being served.
Ingrid Newkirk - some PETA nut - donated her body to PETA, with the intentions of her liver being vacuum packed and put on display at a grocery store, her feet turned into an umbrella stand, her skin into leather, and a couple other things that I can't recall right now.
PETA faxed Roy a letter along the lines of "told you so" after he was mauled by the tiger. He was still in a coma when he recieved the fax.
PETA attacked Hamburg, Germany, along with Hamburg PA, NY, NJ, and AR, urging them to change their name to "Veggieburg." If they did, PETA would donate 10,000 veggieburgers to the town. Not one town agreed. Good.
There was a big uproar in a local town because they dressed up in chicken outfits, and handed out propaganda type pamphlets to young elementary school kids as they boarded buses. Sorry PETA, stay the hell away from our impressionable youth.
I like PETA about as much as I like having teeth pulled. If you love animals so much, fine, veggie it up, enjoy. But, leave us the hell alone! Last week I saw a mouse mauled by a neighborhood cat. If PETA can convince that cat to eat veggies only, maybe I'll recomnsider, bus as long as nature has red teeth, so will I.

In Reply To #7 I was checking out that milk site during lunch today. I wasn't able to see that actual beersurvey link because it's blocked on this network (i don't know how the hell they pick and choose these things). However, I did notice the Milk Suckers trading card pics, which I remember seeing years ago lol. They made 4 cards up to mimick the old Topps Garbage Pail Kids stickers. They feature windy wanda, pimple patty etc. with gross problems because they drink milk. Anyway, I remember when i saw them years ago that Topps was trying to sue them and it sucks that it seems that nothing happened.
I've read that cow's milk is not that good for humans to drink, and tends to cause digestive and allergy problems. One possible alternative (in addition to beer) is soymilk. It has almost as much calcium and there are other benefits from the soy. I went from dairy milk to soymilk over a year ago.
