Stop! There will be no more cow-towing to these old, tired puns. I've herd enough. If these off topic puns continue there will surely be a stampede for the exit of this thread.

In an attempt to steer the thread back on topic, I went with "Other." Because we're the good guys, Michael.

82% white is still more diverse than the Republican National Convention. Or North Dakota.

Wait, are they the same thing? No? Easy mistake.

Eh, the Amish don't pasteurize their milk as an entire community, so while I think it's weird at best for an outsider it's never really bothered me.

I'm talking about the raw milk movement, not the Amish. The Raw Mild crowd are separate group of brainwashed farmers, and altogether stupider.

Fair enough. Can't say as I've really heard about that movement myself, which is why I jumped to the Amish first since I'm fairly familiar with them.

Sounds like placing an order for cheese at the deli.

Oh, you should look them up; the idiocy is spectacular! They think pasteurization is the height of evil, that it corrupts milk and makes it bad for you. My half-sister is one, and the height of her irresponsibility came when she happily consumed raw milk, eggs, cheese, and meet whilst pregnant. Or at least I thought that was the height of irresponsibility, until my new nephew was born and she revealed herself to be an antivaxer. For the record, this isn't the wonderful sister and nephews whom I post pictures of all the time!

Re: What ethnicity are you?

So sad ... I'm the only Asian/Filipino on the BBS?

To be more precise, my deep, deep ancestors were originally from Eastern China. I submitted a DNA sample to the Genographic Project a couple of years ago and had my paternal side analyzed.

Haplogroup O (M175)

I guess I fall under the category of Austronesian/Malayo-Polynesian.
