I played ultimate frisbee in a field today. After we got bored with playing, we ran through the cornfields for like 500m randomly. Did you know corn itches really really badly when you're in a T-shirt and shorts? Yea, we went out to dinner and the whole time I felt like I had a thousand mosquito bites.
An Allergy Hard to Identify
Corn allergy is a food allergy that is difficult to pinpoint because it is hard to eliminate all sources of corn from the diet and from common products. Symptoms from corn allergy can be as severe as other food allergens, however, reactions vary with each individual.
It is important for corn-allergic people to remove all corn and corn products from their diet. Most people who are allergic to corn are allergic to the corn protein, not the oil. During the processing of corn oil, the corn protein is removed, making it tolerable by most corn-allergic people.

Or if you want to be really cruel, find a field of cat tails, and tear them apart all over someone. They'll be pulling that stuff off for days.
Edible Parts: The young tender shoots are edible raw or cooked. The rhizome is often very tough but is a rich source of starch. Pound the rhizome to remove the starch and use as a flour. The pollen is also an exceptional source of starch. When the cattail is immature and still green, you can boil the female portion and eat it like corn on the cob.

Now this is a bit of a weird question...
Do any of you get the impression that sometimes people won't respond, simply because it's started by a particular member?
