Mad_Radhu: They gon' drive out the black element to make the galaxy quote, unquote, safe for white folks. And Jedi's the most insulting installment! Because Vader's beautiful black visage is sullied when he pulls off his mask to reveal a feeble, crusty, old white man! They tryin' to tell us that deep inside we all wants to be white!

I can never remember.  Am I supposed to hate Whole Foods more than Wal-Mart?

I usually shop at the local 33¢ store. Maybe for my wedding I'll consider upgrading to the 99¢ store, but I just can't afford those prices on a day-to-day basis.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I was at a Whole Foods in Portland (Me) a couple weeks ago and saw a bunch of white people with dreadlocks and a couple black people with pompadours. Really shattered some stereotypes.

Oh, and why do people who shop at Whole Foods look more like museum patrons than grocery shoppers? You're not staring at a Dali exhibit, you're picking out broccoli, what's with the forced thoughtful gaze and the chin rubbing??


Maybe they're high. Y'ever think about broccoli? I mean like *really* think about broccoli? Dude.

Danger Avoid Death: skullkrusher: Danger Avoid Death: bud jones: "Terra incognita" is not "blank slate". Try "tabula rosa". Lame editor is lame.

"Tabula rosa" is "red (or pink) slate". "Tabula rasa" is blank slate.

/I suffer from terra cotta incognita. I have trouble recognizing pottery.

I have panna cotta icognita. I can never recognize when I am getting my just desserts.

I like a little tropical fruit with mine. That's right, banana panna terra cotta incognita.

skullkrusher: AverageAmericanGuy: I hate Whole Foods and the entire corporatization of organic foods, as if something so healthy could be properly sold by megachain food warehouses. For me, the essence of food is in the growing and raising of it, and I've been doing that for years. I run a co-op with about 20 other people and we raise all kinds of organic (real organic, not corporate 'organic') vegetables. Occasionally we'll give some of the food to the homeless, especially when we're having a bumper crop.

This attempt to drive out the poor people in these neighborhoods is a terrible thing. People shouldn't be forced to move out just because rich white people want to move in. This is the kind of thing that happens when you value money more than culture.

Our co-op is a good example of how these poor people could grow their own (really) healthy foods instead of paying their whole paycheck to Whole Foods for subpar, fake organic foods.

man, these rich white folks moving in and turning formerly dangerous slums into nice places to raise kids as well as providing an economic boon for those neighborhoods sure are assholes. We should all be living in earthen mounds, actually. Damn rich folks and their stone and timber


Stone and timber? In my day the rich folks had to make do with daub and wattle. And they were lucky to have it.
