That's great! I especially like the part about fear and conservative politics... and gamers. :-)

Yeah...now only if she would've stripped like the Naked News chicks...

logic alert!!!
While she has a point against those who say raw food is better BECAUSE non-humans eat food raw, just because one prefers a food doesn't make it better for you, which some might argue. My cat prefers friskies from a can, but eating raw mouses might be better for her in many cases (worms aside). I don't have to go into Doritos and cheese cake...... come to think of it....when do suppose we wil get Dorito flavored cheesecake?

When you crunch up a few and bake them into the cake! Yuck, btw. Oh - and I had the same thought about raw food. I prefer bacon for breakfast and brats for dinner! (no. not kids)

As a gamer - I'm happy to know that, in general, I'm in better shape than most Americans. I'm not sure what that says about the average American, though. Funny, I didn't know I was depressed. Now I'm wondering what's wrong with me? It's very depressing...

Gosh, it's been 25 minutes and no one is responding... Is it just me or is it getting colder in here?

Mark,

Sorry...not ignoring you. I was off playing toddler-soccar with a friend's preschooler and toddler. (Basically, you show them the basic ball-handling moves, and then you "try" to take the ball away from them.

Hopefully, now they will nap very very well.

A small penguin,

I think the point is that the whole "We shouldn't do it because animals don't do it" thing is just silly...especially when it can be demonstrated that some animals would often do what we do if they could.

And people basing their decisions on that assumption should maybe re-examine their decision-making process.

A a teacher penguin I get really worried about any implication that it's ok we don't eat our vegetables. I find many take the comments such as the good Dr's way out of proportion as an endorsement to eat dorito cheesecake over healthy plankton pie. I know all about teh arguments taht people shoudl be responsible, but really.in the face of food???? (heh...that should be funny to you hunters....) humans are not rational. I read their opinions every week. not rational. a wise person once observed that if you forbade people to consume dung, they would go to great lengths to indulge.....

On another note, anybody get wind of this? http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081024/ap_on_re_us/attack_mccain_sticker

Penguin...when did anyone ever say it's OK we don't eat our vegitables?

All she said was that it's OK to eat them cooked...and actually, some vegitables are more healthy when lightly cooked than when raw.

Penguin,

About the McCain supporter...there are reports of political violence all over the country...some false like this, some true like the one in Minneapolis/St. Paul where politician's homes were attacked.

It is sad and viscious.

It sounds like this lady got a bad case of "Political brain".

It is true that people are not rational...but on the other hand, if you pay attention to your cravings, you can often figure out what you need to eat...and I think that habit and external progamming is stronger than internal for some people in decision-making.

For instance, if you reach for a cup-cake before the carrot habitually, you might assume that you just like cupcakes better than carrots, but how often have you made the decision to eat the healthy food instead, and been surprised by how good it tastes, even though you didn't find it that appealing of an option when making the choice?

I actually, think that our own perception of our preferances can get screwed up by external forces.

If we advertized to chimps, we could probably screw with their eating choices as well.

In an incredibly tangental note: Jay-the-dog is a popcorn snob. He LOVES popcorn made in the popper, but will NOT touch microwave popcorn, and indeed, will drop is ears and tail when offered it, and give you the "I thought you loved me" look.

Pepper, by way of comparison, would eat carrots (raw, not cooked), broccoli (cooked, not uncooked), watermelon and iceberg lettuce, but not the more nutritious kinds of lettuce.

Jay will not eat any of those things...but he estchews chocolate, which Pepper took every opportunity to get, and would have gorged upon if allowed to, and even learned how to open the zippers on backpacks in order to get to...despite the fact that it is poison to dogs.

Also, Pepper would eat any kind of popcorn.

TREEEEES!
I teach for a living??? I hear insane things that make my head spin everyday!!!!! I can get my students to look me in the eye and seriously say I am a penguin because it says so on the board! Anyone in a position of educator has to be very careful about what one says.

A small penguin,

"TREEEEES!

OIC...so the thing about not eating vegitables is an outside point. I was wracking my brain to figure out where it had entered into Dr. KIKI's rant.

Penguin,

That's one of the problems with society. People are very impressionable until maturity and experience treat them to be otherwise. I suspect that many folks never got beyond that stage. I happen to know at least one. I actually wrote a post on this very issue not too long ago! (The post is here, if you're curious: http://alenaae.blogspot.com/2008/10/unapologetic-elitist.html)
