I don't eat tofu on general principal because it's not meat.
 
2018-01-12 07:16:03 PM  
I mean, I get being a vegetarian or vegan for ethical reasons.

And they're good reasons. I don't begrudge you that.

But my ancestors didn't climb up the food chain to eat carrots. I have canine teeth for some reason. But I use my molars to grind carrots and potatoes.

I'll just jump on the bandwagon here and say the Daily Fail is not worth linking to, and their journalistic ethics are so lacking that there's a fair chance they would have made up any quotes themselves to report on them.

They really doesn't mean you wouldn't be healthier without meat. It just means that being able to eat meat, and anything else, was a selective advantage in times when food and particularly protein wasn't that easy to come by.

There's the teeth that suggest that we're omnivores, but there's also a lengthy digestive tract that suggests it as well.  More surface area to absorb broken down nutrients, which is important if you're eating a plant based diet.  But meat-eating has a long and important place in the history of homo sapiens.  It's possible that language developed out of need to communicate during hunting, for example.

If you're not English with a rod so far up your ass that you call it your tongue, you have no business reading the Daily Mail.

Used to be Fark rarely had a DM link. But around the same time they made a push for American audiences, some nitwit took it upon themselves to spam DM links (or Drew got paid, who knows at this point). And here we are, where we get about 4-5 DM links a day. On a site where we consider ourselves media savvy, and where the webmaster once deigned to write a book about how the media takes advantage of you. Now every week is Shark Week here on Fark.

Hey, cut the guy some slack. We all know lack of protein kills of brain cells; being vegan is not without side effects.

If that shows up on my tombstone it better be in the context of "world saved after the deceased killed them."

I have a problem with the concept of cultural appropriation as trotted out by all the little pseudo-Trotskiites with their permanent revolution.Namely that it essentially meaningless and defined solely by the alleged victims or their White Knights.

Your ancestors did not have concrete, asphalt or shoes. Are you going to surrender their cultural appropriations and wear nothing but wooden clogs summer and winter? Or are you going to recognize that the truth, information, culture, music and so forth belong to those who need them, love them and respect them?

I can understand people who are black being annoyed by what white people do with their culture, but if you analyze any culture into its component atoms, it falls apart in your hands. The Blues, Gospel and Jazz had their roots in white European music as well as in Black African music. They are fusions. They have played back and forth between many cultures, even Nazi-era German hipsters. Humanity is one great big dysfunctional family and its culture belongs to us all.

You would never know any culture at all if it weren't appropriated by someone else before YOU ever heard of it.

Don't be that guy on the right or the left. Don't be that guy who speaks for other people who are perfectly capable of speaking for themselves. Don't be a twit. Just when black people are making millions selling their culture is it now taboo for white people to like the N-word music ... AGAIN?

What rock did you crawl out from under any way?

Beware of white people talking pop-psych and bureacratese.

The Daily Fail needs to be evacuated, burned to the ground, the debris pulverized into quarter inch pieces, the pieces removed thence to a disused steel plant, fused to slag at high temperatures, the cooled slag re-crushed and re-laid back on the site, and the earth for an entire kilometer around it permanently sterilized.

I usually sub tofu for chicken when ordering Thai food. It means I can share with my wife, who's a vegetarian, and tofu reheats much better than chicken.

I'm a decent cook. I cook a wide variety of meat-based and vegetarian dishes.

The two things I really hang my hat on are my hamburgers and my tofu.

(And yeah, when I say hamburger, I mean the real dead cow deal)

I had a job that fed us. There weren't many vegetarians and they made a lot less veg food. Non-veg weren't supposed to eat it. That was fair. But that's as far as it goes.

I'm a vegan, I don't care what you eat, and culture develops via sharing in the first place so cultural appropriation unless it amounts to intellectual property theft, I don't want to hear about it.

Mapo dofu is made with meat as a main ingredient.

Tofu: Doesn't actually have a flavor but it will absorb flavor. It's really just a filler, like the bread crumbs in a meatloaf. I like Tofu in a good Miso Soup but that's about it.

Our teeth are like a baby chimp's milk teeth, small and delicate. We have pathetic jaw muscles and a finicky little digestive tract.

What we are is the animal that cooks it's food

Your mother hates you because you tore her a new one.

So does mine.

Our big brains are the reason we have to eat protein that we can only get as carnivores. We didn't have Safeway when we dropped out of the trees and onto the African savannah.
