Ker_Thwap: Hah, I love her definition of hater. " Anyone who doesn't agree with my fantasy is a hater with low self esteem."  Is she 65, or 12?

"Sun, I am disappoint."

Fixed that for you.

If only people could live off of sheer stupidity alone.  The world would need a lot less food.

TheCruxOfTheBiscuitIsTheApostrophe: Think like a vegetable, live like a vegetable.

/thinks she forgot the manure.

I dunno, she sure took in a lot of bullshiat at some point to believe that "Breatharianism".

This story sounds like the plotline to a Portlandia skit.

Egoy3k: Jubeebee: I'd be curious to know how breatharians suppose that humans derive energy from sunlight and air. Do they think that humans have secret chloroplasts?

They don't know what a chloroplast is let alone understand what it does or why they would need one to live off of sunlight. They are most likely below average intelligence and/or mentally ill.

Or you know, a lot of them.

probesport: Breathe.

Breathe in the air

Don't be afraid to care.

If you don't eat your sunlight, how can you have any meat?

Watching fat people who "eat like birds"* shovel it in while saying "I just look at food and the pounds leap to my thighs" has taught us that people who think they are eating nothing are delusional and have very, very selective memories.

Breatharians have simply turned normal human stupidity and denial into a religion. (Forget I said that. We don't need another religion thread.)

*The humming bird, for one, must eat continuously or die. Most birds can eat their own weight several times a day.

Some breatharian excuses:

It doesn't count if I don't see it.
It doesn't count if it's liquified or a beverage.
There are no calories in midnight snacks.
I was just being polite / trying to not stand out in the crowd.
I'm allowed an occasional treat but there aren't any real nutrition in this stuff.
Sure, I eat food sometimes, quite often actually, but I am getting all my nutrition from love, air and fresh water, with maybe a quart of vodka added for flavor.
Spies creep into my hut at night and force-feed me this stuff, which they then bury under the corner of my mud hut for the next time.

Seriously, one South Asian breatharian guru was found to have food buried under the corner of his hut. Another, Australian breatharian was caught eating on an airplane--a preordered meal.

Many breatharians die of malnutrition--those are the ones that don't know you are supposed to cheat every chance you get.

Mjeck: AverageAmericanGuy: Here's the thing. If you take Breathairianism's central tenet, that breathing is crucial to sustaining life, you'll find that it's pretty much spot on.

If you tried to live without breathing, you'd have a pretty tough time. You'd die pretty quickly, actually.

everytime i''m eating another's genitals, eventually, i need to come up for air

You're timing the thrusts wrong.

Maybe if she would have looked around she could have seen the homeless live outside and are in the sunshine a lot yet still seem to find the need to ask people for money so they can EAT.
