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!
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.

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.

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...
I rarely talk to people about Paleo/Primal, but, when I do, it's when they're NOT complaining about their weight or health.
You see, I don't really "do" pity. And one thing I've learned about people is that they're more open to suggestion when they're happy and stable. When they complain they only ever want pity, not to be advised.
Very strange gripe of the day:
I like coffee, but I really really hate when my poop smells like coffee. Gross.
Dear Perpetually Complaining Facebook Friend:
Last week you blew me away by publicly shaming your husband in front of 500 friends for making you late to work. But this week you have returned to your usual set of mundane complaints, such as:
A) You're tired and hate your coworkers.
B) Your job is a major pain.
C) You hate the president.
D) You hate your coworkers. (Round Two)
E) You don't feel like going to work.
F) You hate cats.
G) You hate doing your job.
H) You hate flying because you always catch a cold.
I) You hate taking medicine for the cold you caught flying.
J) People never advanced beyond the cave.
K) You're sick.
L) You're tired.
M) You hate your coworkers. (Round Three)
N) You hate your coworkers. (Round Four)
O) You're bored.
Can we go back to the eyebrow-raising public shaming? That was far more entertaining.
You know all those things you have always wanted to do? You should go do them.
Nah.. I was always aware "they" were out to get me.. even before I became Primal..... Now I can just run faster if they find me-Dino Hunter

Our body is our subconscious mind, and anybody who thinks that their conscious mind is running the show is seriously mistaken. In fact the conscious mind just may be the most narcissistic entity in the universe, it thinks it's running the show. It's not.
