Only real point you have here is the "Recent Reception". And guess what, like above, I don't really care. I never took the time to learn what that is.Being that you are interested, I can only assume you can trade these points in for a training bra.

Why you keep making a fool of yourself in public, if you care so little. It's amusing though to watch!

I'm not looking to be popular, only looking to know the truth and convey it, with civility (and sometimes ambiguity, which tends to make people think -- although people whose diets are off tend to react with anger and hatred towards ambiguity, which helps to identify those people).

You might benefit from reading "Wheat Belly" and/or "Fit for Life", and/or seeing a nutritionist.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
