Re: Tattoo thread

I worry more about your concern about what aliens might think of us than having a tattoo.... It was just a point to illustrate the lack of functionality of a tattoo, and I hold my hands up, I have no response for why a tattoo needs to be functional.

I've never really understood what a tattoo can achieve that a bumper sticker or hallway art can't. I have no issues with people who have meaningful defining things they want to take to the grave: family stuff, their career, where they're from, life changing events. But I've seen bumper stickers with...

The 147: "clean break" (from snooker)

Where you wipe, inspect the damage and its (visibly) clean. Because of the good diet and constitution required for this rare event, its often the highlight of the day.

Re: Chef trolls vegan protesters

Super, it goes on to recommend how to cook meat. Thick.

Re: Chef trolls vegan protesters

Broccoli - that veg's inclusion on a plate is for its nutrients, well above egg yolk. For protein, we'll be easily matching egg whites with lentils, beans, grains and nuts.

Regarding pollution, animal farming contributes more than you think. Its comparable to "transport".
