Re: What the Word 'Vegan' Really Means

I thought that was a really well put article. As to the man who coined the term, it's irrelevant (ducks flying objects). Original meanings have no worth to present day strictly within the context of what it means to people. All words meanings change over time, and often very rapidly. Most dictionar...

Re: Living with critters!

my on campus apartment at my school, apparently each spring the ants have a party in it. so last spring, my first year here, they went crazy. i killed hordes. flushed to be precise, as i can't bring myself to step on one or anything like that. i was living with my sister at the time, who is a very c...

Re: Gym rants

Stability balls. I mean really. Anything on a stability ball is a waste of time. Almost as bad is the dude who comes in and does nothing but adductor and abductor. Their bodies never change for one simple reason, but they cannot figure it out. At my gym its the new cool thing to do. Everyone does E...

My bad, I lied. When I said pullups, I meant chinups.

Re: MYTE or not??

Well, let me sort of rectify what I said. In periods of intense cardio, your muscles can certainly be used for fuel, but again so long as you're eating, you're going to be fine. I ran distance with a number of very muscular guys (even a muscle ultra-marathoner [not bodybuilder muscular, but a great ...

Re: Columbus Day

I'm not really going to argue this but elaborate on the point I made earlier. I didn't watch the video but I'm assuming it's about what a bad man Columbus was and what terrible things he did, was responsible for, brought to this continent, yadda yadda. So....the same stuff I've been hearing about hi...

Re: Honey

If you are going to consume something that bees produce you might as well at least consume dairy. It's a problem of consistency. Why would you eschew one animal product but consume another? Well, not really. Bee's aren't slaves, they aren't being coerced, they're doing what they naturally do and we...

Re: Honey

Great site, thank you! I'm still seeing an indoctrination problem though. For instance, I eat a completely vegan diet (save for my honey who's fate is in serious limbo), and I do care about the welfare of animals. First and foremost for me is health, but were that taken out of the equation I still w...

Re: Honey

The point is that bees are not ours to be turned into slaves to produce a product that we steal. Many of these beings are not only killed, and smoked out of their own homes, which does not exactly feel good I am sure, or they wouldnt fly away when the smoke came, but they are also tested on and use...

Honey

I'm hoping someone can explain the argument against consuming honey for me. And please, I don't care for the idea that "it's an animal product, so vegans don't eat it, period" idea. That's mindless indoctrination. Sorry if that sounded rude, I just wanted to get it out of the way, as I'm r...

Re: Bar-barians.

I used to be a pullup freak a year back. I actually got to the point where I had 40 pounds in my backpack, and i'd do 10 sets of 10 reps like that. pushups like that too. but at that weight the straps got frankly painful doing pullups, and with pushups it killed having that weight balancing on my ba...
