Happened yesterday in rush hour and it pissed me off when some jackasses decided that staying in the left lane ten more seconds was worth slowing down an ambulance.

The stories I could tell.

I don't know if this is a California thing, but it's pretty much the standard now that, upon hearing/seeing sirens, tons of folks just stop where they are, regardless of lane. I've been in the number one lane with no place to go, having to honk at folks just to create space to move over and clear a lane. My drive home passes a large hospital so I see this probably monthly. Totally grinds my gears!!!

Oh so the effin skill you are most proud of is the ability to taste. Congratu-effin-lations you can taste and you really believe that organic carrots taste any different than the carrots grown in the field across the road? Guess what, your tasting skill isn't nearly as refined as you thought. Cut a big salmon in half serve half of it as grilled salmon and the other half as oak fired, wild caught, North Atlantic salmon and the foodie will beg you to charge $5 more for that better half.

The entire "organic" craze is one of the biggest scams ever perpetuated on mankind.

it definitely is overhyped, but i wouldn't call it a scam. it's nice to buy something and see very little ingredients. i think everyone would agree with that. it's also nice to know that your produce isn't sprayed with chemicals. who's to say that the jury isn't still out for whether gmo's and such aren't actively affecting us. with that said, gmo's are definitely the way to feed the planet. i'm not an extreme earth warrior, more of an explorer and i don't shy away from gmo's but i try to adopt organic and locally first. you can most certainly make it affordable too. you just can't fall for every gimmick, which is what gives organic a bad name to begin with. and it's only a bad name because the majority of the world thinks you're trying to be different on purpose. why can't someone just try to live as healthy as possible without being ridiculed?

of course there's the argument that since the population of the world was compelled from the get go to increase that it's only inevitable (and natural) for us to find creative ways to feed the perpetual surplus

My dad died at 89. My MIL just turned 87. Do you think these two people cared about GMOs or organic?

Man, you people better stop being so afraid to die. It will come even if you eat like a rabbit. I know people that smoked like chimneys and live to a ripe old age. Soy Foy, only Libturds carry that banner. Us people like Stinky, Kaplony, me, don't give a crap about Vegetarian diets, we'll eat almost anything and watch us live to 90.

What I would love to eat and learn from experience is the art of eating wild plants and bugs, like early man did. It will come to that. Poor bugs, it'll be them hiding from us.

i think stinky would send himself into orbit if he makes it to seventy five

i hear you brother. i just think people want to take every measure possible to ensure they have good quality of life when they're elderly. i don't fall into this category, wrought with vice as i am

foraging is also something i'd like to get better at. i've got a rudimentary grasp of what is wildly edible
