"Modified Diets"

  • Danny: I'm starting the Paleo diet
  • Me: You realize that means you can't eat grains, dairy, sugar, potatoes, beans, your diet sodas--
  • Danny: Stop! ...I'm going on a modified Paleo diet

I am full of unbridled hate for the NC Medicaid system and American healthcare in general.

Finally happy with my hair! It’s actually less red than it seems in the photo. 

My dad said, “boy, don’t you look good. You look like Beyoncé”

Which first I laughed at but then said that’s actually a nice compliment.

I was a Sherlock Holmes fan before it was cool.

…not to rain on your parade, but it was cool back in the 1890s.

How do you know I’m not referring to the late 1800s?

Carnist: I eat a lot of fruit and veg
Response: Wow, that’s really healthy
Vegan: I eat a lot of fruit and veg
Response: Yeah, you’ll be dead soon.
"Carnist"? HAHAHAHHAHAHA Is that what the "enlightened" people of today are calling those with a natural human diet? The proper word is "omnivore," guys. It hasn’t magically changed since we all learned it in primary school science class.

But we’re talking about ethics here, not biology. Omnivore is a biological term, contrasted with herbivore. It means one who is able to eat meat and vegetation.

Carnist, on the other hand, is an ethical term, meaning one who believes that eating meat is not morally objectionable. It’s not there to be an insult, it just exists as a contrasting term for vegan. 

Excuse me. It wasn’t clear from the original post that it was coming from a purely ethical standpoint, rather than one of biology. I would think that biological terminology would apply regardless.

Oh, the semantics. :P
