    Me: Well did you eat breakfast?
    Co-worker: Er...no. I had a cookie!
    Me: Well that probably isn't going to help
    -keep chatting, he mentions he's doing no-carb, eating lean meats & veggies, I keep my mouth shut, but then he says he has EGG WHITES for breakfast usually-
    Me: What?! No, eat the whole thing! You're missing out on the protein!
    Co-worker: I don't want all that cholesterol.
    Me: But dietary cholesterol has very little impact what's measured in your body. It mostly just comes right out and your body makes the rest.
    Co-worker:...Well I don't like c-word foods then. Except for chicken. And carrots.

    I don't understand why people will keep defending their way of eating instead of conceding with something like, "Oh, I didn't know that!" I've also shared some links with him before about cholesterol/paleo eating etc. but I guess he doesn't read them I give up!

    ....But..."C" is for cookie....

Thus stealing all the world's resources for themselves, while being essentially useless and even harmful to the rest of the planet, and consequently destroying other organisms that actually have a positive impact and necessary function in the circle of life.

    So I guess I agree with the comparison but not the implied conclusion.

    I actually thought this, but refrained from speaking up since I was just giving him information about how to eat healthfully ><

    I'm gonna say that yes, there *are* actually too many children. Or rather, there's too many humans in general and we're going to breed ourselves into extinction. There's really only a few choices left IMO.

    1) We stop having so many children so our population can go into decline until we reach a level that is sustainable.
    2) We go into massive nuclear war to achieve the same
    3) We get so densely populated that some deadly disease spreads to everyone like wildfire and wipes most of us out.
    4) We run out of resources and mass starvation/wars occur anyway till few of us are left living in a barren world. (I am pretty certain we *will* hit peak oil in our generation, and that's when the global economies will *really* start collapsing from hyperinflation)

    Out of all these options, 1 really seems like the least painful choice.

    Dracil- I was thinking the same thing, but didn't want to be single, childless person that said so Granted, SOME people ought to breed so that we don't die out altogether, but far, far fewer than breed now. And only ones that WANT children, not the "oopsies" and "I should's" that account for so many.

    Wow. This is totally something I would say. I've ruined more than a few pop wisdom, fuzzy wuzzy quotes for people with this type of cold, hard logic. Usually, it just results in me getting a blank stare and then people walking off. Hilarious.
