I went on another one of my rants today.
This is what happened:
My U.S. History teacher likes rambling. Today he was talking about Shoney's. He said he likes going there and getting a take-out all-you-can-eat-buffet. He mentioned that he fills his main dish with meat, his salad dish with meat, and any other dish with meat. He went on and on about meat meat meat and how much he eats. He also said he likes going to graduation because they have free chicken and he just brings his own ziplock and fills it up... so you get the point...
then someone started talking about "canned goods" and how you can buy stuff at dollar general
and my teacher says, "OH no no no, I don't eat stuff from a can! Cans equals Cancer. Cans Cancer. Cans CANCER. "
so of course,
I raised my hand.
"Wait, soooooo you won't eat out of a can because it causes cancer, YET you eat a TON of meat? Are you aware of the pesticides and chemicals in your meat!? Meat causes cancer just as much, if not more than canned goods!!!!"
BAM, the riot started. I went on a pretty good rant.
oh this is funny ---
After telling him a lot of facts about meat and conventional vs. organic and all of that, he says, "SOOOOO darling, are you a vegetarian!?"
and I reallllly didn't feel the need to say "no im raw vegan" so i just answered, "well yeah... kinda..."
and he asked me if i ate certain things like fish and chicken... you know how the questionare goes. =)
Then someone blurted out, "WAIT WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR PROTEIN!?"
*smack myself in the face*
I AM SO TIRED OF ANSWERING THIS QUESTION!? What about you guys!? LOL it is truly sad and humorous at the same time HOW MANY PEOPLE are completely dumb when it comes to nutrition and facts vs. myth about nutrition....
The whole class seriously broke out and finally a guy raised his hand and said, "Can we move on now?" to my teacher because my teacher kept going on and on and on about it, even after I was finished. =) good times.
I told the people next to me to make me shuttup if I start talking about nutrition again, and they were like, "OH NO we like it! we don't mind!"
man... i love being a healthy rebel.
The other day in class my English teacher was giving candy to everyone and she didnt even ask me. She passed my desk and said, "well.... i don't even have to ASK you!!!!!" but she said it in a postive way, which was funny.
anyways, i'm done rambling. Just had to share.
I'm off to Chattanooga this weekend for a climbing trip. WOOHOO!!!
p.s. McCain picked a WOMAN for VICE PRESIDENT!? WHAT! WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO!? I'm not personally a McCain fan, but I am definitely a fan of the ladies.
This election is making SERRRRRRRIOUS history, no matter WHO becomes president! WOW! This is insane!
