    I heard vegetarians smell worse. Must be all that broccoli.


    But seriously...




    How funny?
    Burning off all that animal protein energy I suppose.

    Is that really something that needs to be taught in school though?

    If everyone was informed, then the current governments would not be allowed to do as they are today.

    Didn't answer my question. Aside from being well informed, how are you utilizing your knowledge in your life. That is, how are you in your part making a difference and practicing what you preach? I mean, you calling society pathetic and the masses sheep does nothing for me on an individual basis nor is it really helping all of us here so I ask, with your well found knowledge what are you doing to change that little part of society you live in outside the forum?

    Sorry it's a loaded question.

    So unless you are very rich (100+ mill) and are managing that money in a way that they will be safe, regardless of what the system does. Then you are owned by the system.

    Water conservation and worry. Without the worry, no body odor. Honest sweat doesn't stink.

    So this thread is just a European starting a thread to trash the United States.

    Credit to you then!
    Personally I eat meat, and I like it. But I try to only eat meat from animals that have been treated well so that I do not contribute to animal torture. Besides that, the quality is superior to normal meat.
    Personally I find biodynamic agriculture very interesting. I suppose what you would do in Africa is much in the same direction? Self sustained farming.

    YES! Credit to you for that, but not for your attitude previously in this thread

    Education and knowledge is THE key to solve poverty! There is absolutely no other way to solve it. Only if the people without the means to take care of themself, get the knowledge to do so, will the problems be solved. In my opinion.

    I think all above mentioned things are great, perhaps aside from the military thing.

    I have the same belief as you actually. That everyone has a lot to win if knowledable people in the west offer their knowledge and teaching to those in need.

    I do lots of things, jogging is ONLY one of them.


    There are probably millions of ways to make the world better, and they ALL count, including the smallest things. So, I am happy to hear about how YOU are contributing.
