    • beautiful
      yeah you are

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

      • You will find that another day you will be in a much better mood. I've had lots of great years, and a few crappy ones, but that isn't the worst thing that could happen. In fact, a lot of good things usually happened, too. Circumspection is a good word for the day.

        I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

        • My gripe of the day today is me - for being a dumbass.

          I've been feeling cranky, out of sorts, not sleeping well, etc. for weeks. Three days ago, I thought, "well crap, I know what's happening." So I took some anti-anxiety meds (which I don't take on a regular basis). That's not bad. But in addition, I started taking Vit D again. Three days in, I'm feeling tons better. Of course now I don't know if it's the meds, the D, or both. Brilliant.

          Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

          • GOTD: I'm officially insane, you know, repeating the same behavior but expecting a different result. I get headaches from red wine. I drink red wine, I get a headache. OTOH: As the late great Mitch Hedberg said:
            "I like to drink red wine. This girl asked me once if red wine gave me a headache. I said, 'Sure, eventually, but the first and middle parts are amazing!' I'm not going to give up on something because of what it does eventually. It's like getting an apple and going 'Whoa, stop! That's going to be a core eventually!'"

              People policing people's thoughts. I know the person in question posted her thoughts in a forum, but she wasn't mean to anyone in real life. OUR THOUGHTS DO NOT HAVE TO BE POLITCALLY CORRECT. In fact, the very act of you shaming a person for their thoughts is hugely hypocritical because to shame someone for doing something like that you would have to be Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior because I'm sorry if you're a human being living on earth, you have thought something nasty about someone you've never seen before. Whether it was because they were fat, skinny, cut out in front of you in traffic, or sneezed on you in public it doesn't matter. As long as you kept those thoughts in your head and didn't say "Thanks for being a fatty, you just made my diet much easier just by looking at you, Fattikins" its okay. You're a human being....sometimes we can be judgy. Don't shame other people because of a natural human instinct to see others and judge them in comparison to yourself. I'm not saying it a great human instinct but i just don't agree with people who say you "shouldn't think like that"

              I ain't freaking mother teresa, and if i was, I would probably still be judging you in my thoughts

                There are days when I'm not absolutely 100% sure my son wouldn't have made better medical waste.

                Yep. I said it.

                No he's not a child in my "care" anymore... no one needs to faint from worry.
                He's an adult who has decided to stress me out and screw up his life (and possibly the lives of a few other people too) as much as possible it seems.

                  • Yeah, veganism is great - I lost my hair, my energy, and my overall general health was terrible - I was an "informed" vegan too, combining for protein, etc. There's a great book by a former vegan called "The Myth of Vegetarianism", from an ethical, economic, and of course nutritional standpoint. The author is Lierre Keith.

                      • oh yes i vanished for quite a while. Got lazy with the eating, had an immense personal crisis that lasted for about a year, and put on some weight, but i have emerged like the phoenix, lost ten pounds, started doing that BodyRocktv.com craziness and decided i missed the folks here at MDA. I've been lurking for about a week without posting...but today i was trolling and let my inner shit-starter come out of the woodwork.
                        I've missed you guys!

                          Agree 100%
                          Hyper-sensitivity and PC-ness gets on my nerves.

                          • I have to agree. I'm sort of naturally PC, but I have a sense of humor about it all. In fact the number 2 reason I left the last city I lived in was the smothering effect of fanatical PCness.

                            No one can accuse N'Orleans of being PC (though I'm sure it has its factions) and I'm much happier here.

                              Likewise. I live in London which is an an extremely PC place, so you have to watch what you say sometimes. I'm very conscious of it cos' I'm sensitive to people's feelings, but if people are relaxed then we just have a laugh. My sense of humour can actually be pretty dark...!

                              Life's too short, and no one gets out alive anyway (did I just steal that from some other posters signature?)

                              But saying that, it really does depend on the attitude of the person saying the thing. Some people are ignorant or rascist prigs, which necessitates the whole concept of being Politically correct. I like to think the majority of people aren't like that though.

                              "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                              In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                              • My gripe of the day:
                                We were doing a RP session in French class. We were in pairs and had to form an argument around "A wants to go to a demonstration, but B advises against it."
                                The two vegetarians a table away from me decided to do a "vegetarian convincing a meateater to go to a pro-veggie demonstration" argument. I had to bite my tongue to stop myself from interrupting their RP when they got to the "health reasons for going veggie" section. Grrrrr... There are a few valid arguments for going vegetarian. They decided to ignore those and go for the "fat will kill you" ones. Shoulda interrupted the class, explained why they were wrong and made a point of bringing in and eating a pack of raw fatty bacon in front of them. FAT IS NOT BAD! Grr...

                                Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.
