Yeah, that's a mullet.

#1 Postby mulletass » Mon Dec 11, 2006 11:56 pm

I have been veg for roughly 4 years. I'm a freshman in college now and went (rough) vegan a few days ago. Things are going well, and I've had a piece of cheese pizza and a bite of pie, but only stuff others weren't going to eat. (My philosophy regarding veganism and vegetarianism is that eating meat isn't the problem, it's killing the animal that bothers me. By eating only leftovers that would be discarded, I contribute nothing to the overall demand for meat and cause no more deaths than if I had not eaten the animal product at all. Still, I haven't had meat in so long I don't even like its taste now, maybe that'll happen with eggs and milk products. Doubt it.)
I am metal thrashing mad and have a mullet. I shred the axe and come off as mean to many people getting aquainted with me. I'm low on social inhibitions and politeness, but am nice at heart. Essentially, don't take what I say seriously. Or at least, look at the content, not the phrasing.

I recommend ginkgo biloba to all who have a hard time concentrating on boring shit like term papers. Give it a whirl.

Trust me, milk and eggs become far more disgusting than meat ever has. (I can't stand to look at any of them)

I've seen you post quite a bit in the past few days though, welcome aboard. :-D

Welcome mullet man! Great to have you here. Mullets are always welcome. I had one about 5 years ago and always kinda had one growing up.

I hope you're enjoying the forum so far. We've got a ton of great people with great info to share.

All the best and welcome aboard!

Diary products glue up the lymphatic system and make people more susceptible to colds and flus. If I lost any semblance of morality I still wouldn't eat diary thanks to learning over the last couple years how those yearly colds and flus were being caused by diary.

Some here would object to your use of the word bitch. Derogatory words related to animals and women are often quite frowned upon by vegans. Just letting you know. I understand you don't mean it in a derogatory way.

Hey dude welcome to the forum. What bands do you listen to?

I used to have the same attitude towards dairy as you have, I would eat things that others were going to throw away, that's what I did when I first decided that I wanted to be vegan. I stopped doing that after a couple of weeks. It no longer seems like food to me, I don't see the benefit of consuming it. I mean, cow's milk is for calves and contains all kinds of nasty stuff that's not suitable for humans. Additionally, milk of any animal is only for infants, that's why animals (including humans) stop producing milk once their children have developed beyond infancy - because milk is a food to make things grow at a rapid rate. Cheese is just milk which has been left to basically decompose for weeks, that is just gross to me. Meat, is a dead body, I don't fancy chowing down on a morgue burger.

But you are correct that you aren't contributing any more suffering to animals by eating something which would have otherwise be disposed. Just make sure people aren't ordering or buying more to compensate for your habits

Hello and welcome :D
We have had many newbies here who changed their attitudes towards dairy products after a while.

The other part of vegan is that you dont consume animal products. There are freegans who may do what you do, but a lot of the vegan ones won't eat meat/dairy out of the trash since it goes rancid so quickly. Its your body though and you are right, you aren't contributing to deaths, I think.

Yeah, even now I don't eat loose meat, just because it tastes so bad. There's a farm near my home though that I approve of, and I'll drink their milk while I'm home for break. Still no good egg source.

Bitch was a joke. Yeah, some people get offended by words, but I've always thought that was dumb. No word has inherent value. Is only offensive when used as a threat or highly deragotory attack. It's now used similarly to "brother" or "pal" and only really anal people seem to mind. Again, it's content, not presentation, that counts. Not that it even matters much. Just thought I'd say.

Music: (this is my list from my facebook profile) Death, MANOWAR, true metal. Not in order of preference: Good Death metal, Suffocation, Possessed, Deicide, Dying Fetus. Thrash, Kreator early Anthrax, Metallica, Slayer, Exodus, Testament, Dark Angel, Death Angel, Sepultura, and Megadeth. Virtuoso Guitar, Jason Becker, Yngwie Malmsteen Thrashy hardcore, LetXDown, Drug Test, Municipal Waste, DRI, SOD, Toxic Holocaust, Bones Brigade, Cro-Mags, Direct Control.(Neo) Classical, Beethoven, Ralph Vaughn Williams, Haydn, Mozart, Handel, Vivaldi, Sant-Seans, Smetana, Paganini, Yngwie Malmsteen, Bach

A lot of those bands I only like early work from.

Hooray for mullets and metal. Kudos to all.

I'm in Massachusetts at Clark University right now. Obviously, I wasn't born here (hair). I'm origionally from North Carolina. Chapel Hill, the oasis of liberal-pinkie-vegan-fair-trade-me within the desert that is my home state.

Welcome, I'm sure you fit in perfectly at Clark. :wink:

I went to Assumption, btw, where you'd fit in even more perfectly. NOT. :wink: :wink:

You should try going totally dairy free for a month. Just as a test. You'll be amazed at how much better you'll feel.
