I really hate it when hot girls are vegan.
A couple months ago I was at my roommate's bar drunk off my ass and a rather attractive girl who must have been 10 years younger than I leaned into me and we struck up a conversation. Her boobs were pressed against my arm which I normally take to mean a woman is interested in me in some way. I can't remember how the topic turned to food, but she was a vegan, which meant I could see how the rest of the conversation would unfold and I would not be having sex with her.
It always goes something like this:
Her: Well I'm a vegan, so...
Me: Really? That's interesting, good for you, healthy.
Her: You aren't a vegan.
Me: I like meat a lot. I used to be a vegetarian, for five years, but I was always sad and cold.
Her: You probably didn't do the research on your diet...
[I humor for a while, yes, ok, maybe I should have tried eating more shiitake mushrooms and spinach...]
Her voice rises and she grows more passionate.
Me: Well ok you're a vegan that's great.
Her: BUT WHY DO YOU NEED TO EAT MEAT WHEN I HAVE JUST DEMONSTRATED WITH MY ENCYCLOPEDIC KNOWLEDGE OF NUTRITION THAT IT IS NOT NECESSARY AND THOMAS JEFFERSON WAS A VEGETARIAN.
Me: I like to eat meat all the time.
It's always the same. There is something wrong with vegans.
It's just so refreshing to come across someone who holds defending correct nutritional science above getting laid.

Why did they record the sound through Ventrilo or similar?

That looks awesome. Almond paste rocks.
Also: please explode with nerd rage over what some random chick on the internet eats.

A dish with out animals in it ! Stop the presses, what it this crazy new cult?
calm down, go eat some tofurkey.
politicizing your diet is a drag, not just for you (come on...admit it), but everyone around you as well.
three stars anyway because it does look good.

that second chick did not look like she enjoyed that "food"

I really get being a vegan, but I don't get raw food.
neither do humans. the only reason we evolved into beings that could use our brains to think about things more than we needed to use calories digesting food was because we discovered that protiens and carbohydrates are more easily digested when they are subjected to heat. Raw veganism is ok if you're trying really hard to lose weight, but as a substantial diet you are actually working against the progress of evolution, and against everything that make humans as advanced as we are. also, you will probably get a protein deficiency and have to be hooked up to an IV, bitch.
think of a great big orangutan. look how big their bellies are. their bellies are full of raw vegetables or raw meat. they are slow. We are quick. because the vegetables and meat we added an external digestive element to how we eat: aka cooking the food. Breaking the nutrients down beyond their harsh and cellulose infested casings. cook that shit and it's suddenly a neutron bomb of neutrition and then your body doesn't have to forage for fruits anymore, you can just sit around and say "hey, clay aiken was retarded in the last 30 rock... wtf? i just thought of this using the power of my powerful brain that works on cooked food..."

"This only took us 3 minutes" You're shitting me right? It must have taken 20 minutes just to "de-stem" all that cilantro. Let alone prepping the other ingredients.
I could've made about 7 omelets before she finished one bowl of cold nuts with tomatoes.

I am anxiously awaiting "love the chicks" Greek style.

Four stars because that looks pretty good, but the cook really needs to be naked.

Looks tasty, but methinks as a smaller portion and as an appetizer to a really good grilled fish or chicken dish.

Totally pro-vegan even though I'm not one anymore, and I don't see any reason or have any desire to argue over it. It's weird to see how it's become a recurring trend to automatically hop to the character claims the instant the topic of veganism comes up, though.
The vast majority of veggies and vegans are quietly going about their business with very little concern about preaching to you, and if you think that the average person is represented in any way by idiots screeching on youtube about how you are disgusting selfish murderers, well, I don't know what to do with you. Except tell you that most feminists aren't man hating lesbians, most black people aren't crack addicts, and most Americans aren't morbidly obese rednecks in scooters with elementary school educations.
It's kinda the same principle; you don't see the ones that are in the majority because it's a quiet majority and the screeching idiots that make up 1% are always getting the attention.
I think it depends on why a person became a vegan in the first place.
Surely you must have met a militant vegan somewhere along the line. Also, comparing vegans with black people and feminists isn't a viable analogy. Women and black people have had the short end of the stick for a long time, and there is some justification to be angry there, especially when they're young and feeling the power.
Whereas vegans are just people that ruin barbecues by being total pussies.
Another fun thing that happened to me:
When I moved to NYC to look for an apartment, the second place I looked had a vegan cook girl living there. She asked me if I ate meat, and I said yes, and in a very condescending and loathsome way said "Well I just don't think I could live with somebody like that."
She said "somebody like that." I honestly wanted to rape her.
Maybe I should have.

I don't care if it's vegan, this is a really creative recipe. And even though I can't go for a raw food diet myself, I will tell you without hesitation that I have met a few guys who were raw food eaters and they all looked at least a decade younger than they actually were.
Too bad I love eggs and cheese so much.
Yes, but that "steak and scotch" look is HOT.

Ah yes, I believe you are referring to the Dennis Leary diet. A very sexy diet, that one.
|Big Beef Burritos Supreme - 2009-05-16 |
You see, I'm better than you because my simple easy breakfast took overnight preparation and harmed no animals.
What about agriculture and urbanization's impact on the ecosystem? What about the waste of money and resources your diet presents in contrast to the people starving in the countries where it was harvested?
If I could believe this philosophy was more than surface deep, maybe I wouldn't find it obnoxious. I just feel it's so self satisfied and not really about anymore than a superior attitude.

so you stir the paprika and olives into the peanut butter, and voila! haute cuisine! fuck you in the stupid fuckin' face. ani phyo. I will crush your vagina with golf spikes.

I was vegan for two years, my advice is never tell anyone you are vegan. People who aren't vegan would always ask me about it or bring it up and give me a hard time.
I went vegan because I don't like growth hormones and antibiotics in my food. I'm not anymore because eating meat is cheaper.
|cognitivedissonance - 2009-05-18 |
I'd actually give the raw foods diet a chance, because I'd probably enjoy the challenge. I think I'm good enough of a cook to make it work.
