Current interests - Starting Strength (reading it very slowly)
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

Ad on the TV (I'm not sure if it's a Dutch ad or just an American one that has been translated... maybe others have seen it, too?)
"Is it possible? Drinkable yoghurt without added sugar?"
*Cue to a lot of glasses with drinkable yoghurt appearing on screen. Some disappear because they're apparently not added-sugar-free*
*cue to a lot more glasses disappearing, actually leaving none.*
"But with the rich, full taste of [brand's name]?"
*Empty glass is placed on screen*
*Drinkable yoghurt is poured into glass*
"Yes, it is! New, [brand's name] drinkable yoghurt! Without fat and without added sugars!"
WHAT THE HELL IS IN THERE, PEOPLE? AIR?!

I'll see if my grocery store has it. My parents will probably drink it, so my money won't go to waste.
Not sure if I can translate it to English, though. A lot of chemicals might have different names in Dutch.
Every Thursday is "veggie-day" in the canteens of my school . Luckily I always bring my own lunch, because there's just NOTHING there for me to eat, even on non-veggie days (baguettes, sausage rolls with puff pastry, danish pastry, bread, bread, bread, bread!).
Actually this "Thursday vegetarian day" is promoted by the Belgian government (I suppose like 'meatless monday' in other parts of the world?) . Yum, eat all this chemical, processed crap because it is so much better then real food *sigh*. And I know you can eat a decent meatless meal, but I'm afraid for MOST people it means some kind of 'meat-like' chemical shitstorm made of soy.
When I was vegetarian (*gasp!*), I was stuck with above mentioned soy crap. Although I said I liked them, they were very dry and needed extreme tomato-sauce drowning to be edible without choking on it. I actually planned on never using fake-meat again when I moved out. Instead, I would just have "well-balanced" meals with beans and actual soy, instead of chemically shaped-into-hamburgers stuff.
.... Thank God that I found MDA long before that. In fact, MDA is the reason why I'm no longer a vegetarian now! (After reading the PB and MDA, I began seeing animals as food sources again. )
