Date of Birth: May 19th 1977

Location: Frankfurt, Germany

Alex went vegan for ethical, ecological and healthy reasons (in that order) after realizing the ethical implications of eating meat and the countless other ways of abusing animals and nature. He feels it was the best decision he ever made in his life.

Alex successfully competes in amateur bodybuilding contests and also enjoys other sports such as swimming and martial arts.

Usually he tries to eat healthy whole food and veggies, but even he can't resist the vegan cakes and treats his girlfriend loves to make. His favourite things include eating and he's says it's great to be a vegan bodybuilder because that way he can eat all the time without getting fat.

Jonathan Robinson, 21 years old.

Location: Edinburgh, Scotland.

Occupation: Wage slave for the moment! Jonathan hopes soon to put his experience in care to use, and work with physically and mentally disabled adults again.

Jonathan went vegan entirely for ethical reasons, but quickly realised just how good it was for his health. Through training and good diet, he has gained 28kg (62lb) and huge amounts of strength.

Jonathan primarily trains with weights for strength, though does greatly enjoy mountain climbing, cycling, tennis and bodyboarding.

10/22/83, I'm older than both of yous! I"m starting to feel old too, at least on campus....so many 18 year old freshman!

But that's totally off topic.....sorry!

Make it on tpoic by sending me a picture FAST!

 

Hey, i know two other pretty girls born that day

 

Thanks Johnatahn and Topher

But sorry, i forgot to ask: since when vegan?

 

Edit: You confuse me

Johnathan says he's born on 28/07/1984, i think that's July

Meggy says 10/22/1983, that must be october.

So, has Topher birthday in Septmeber or November? I guess November 9th, because he's American as Meggy, not from the UK as Johnathan... (and because i remember he said that his birthday is coming up ).

"The "Fit Vegan Photo Calendar 2006" is a joint project of fit vegans from around the world. Our aim is to correct the common misconceptions that vegans are frail, skinny and weak. In fact there are countless vegan athletes who prove every day that a plant based diet delivers more than enough energy and nutritients for high performance in sports. The twelve pictures show athletes of various levels, from professional triathletes to amateur bodybuilders to fitness enthusiasts. The "Fit Vegan Photo Calendar 2006" is the perfect gift for vegans and from vegans to friends and family. We hope you enjoy the calendar and wish you a happy new year 2006! "

 

I think it sounds fine apart from those alterations I would make, which I've high-lighted

 

After the phrase "In fact" in the third sentence, there should be a comma. "Plant based diet" should probably read "plant-based diet"

ive been vegan since 7th september 2003. i remember the date specifically as it was the day i got back from nepal.

 

hehe - the american system of dates is silly - makes more sense to start with the smallest part (the day) and then work to the largest (the year). i reckon you guys just do it to be different

Aww, I wish I were calendar-worthy, but I really don't think I am!

 

Heh, good point on the dates, I'm used to seeing it both ways - you are right though, Topher's is in November, he wrote it as we Americans do

 

My dad lived in Europe for awhile though (4 years in England, 2 in Belgium, and 4 in Italy, possibly more,not sure) Anyway - so he picked up the habit of writing his dates in day/month/year format, and I picked it up from him, so I tend to do it both ways! (which means I always know what I mean, but I often confuse others )

 

Sorry - off topic again. I'll have to find another way to make it up to you. My next thread you can hijack ok?

I guess that means your avatar pic isn't really you?

Are there any threads in this forum that are NOT hijacked after 5 posts?

I take you by the word, however, your next thread is mine

I'm happy to say that tomorrow, approximately 20hours from now, the calendar will most probably be finished and the first test copy printed

 

Robert will distribute the calendar in the US. He said 100 copies would do for the beginning. Do you all think he's right with that estimation? All say:

NOOO!

 

For the Europeans, send an order to my email adress or pm me in the forum.

 

If anyone wants to buy a whole box for re-selling, that's possible also.

 

I hope i will get some organizations to distribute the calendar, or it might end up a very tiny project
