Comment Re:Vegans need it (Score 1) 520

So, proof that Vegans are full of shit and their claims about a healthy diet are so much toilet waste?

If there was such a thing as a miracle diet I think we'd know about it without relying on a bunch of weirdos.

I'm not sure they do it for health reasons though, that's just how they justify it to themselves. They mainly do it because they're weirdos who like to think they're giving the finger to The Man.

Ignorant patients will always find greedy doctors willing to give them antibiotics they don't need for diseases that aren't bacterial.

Why aren't doctors allowed to give people sugar pills instead of antibiotics? Of if they are allowed, why aren't they actively doing it instead of sending people home empty handed (which leaves them unhappy so they go looking for a 'better' doctor)?

There should be organization at a national level to produce nicely packaged placebos in important looking boxes. They could even change the name every few months so people don't figure it out.

If there's anything that's in world/national interest, this is it.

As a former soldier, I don't want them to cut funding for air conditioning. Operating in climates with 120 F for months at a time is pretty hard, and the computers and equipment starts failing.

But I get your point.

Maybe they could stop using tents to store people/computers.

Something insulated might cut the power bill....

Hint: "Armed security officers" can also be untrained overpaid mouthbreathers with power trip issues.

All it takes for them to get involved in a situation is a nod from one of the currently employed untrained overpaid mouthbreathers with power trip issues and one of the the newly employed untrained overpaid mouthbreathers with power trip issues will be right there to help.

If we follow the logic through to the end, everybody, everywhere needs an armed guard; just in case the lunatic-du-jour decides that's where he wants to kill people.

Marathon runs obviously need an armed guard every 10 yards along the course. We have proof that terrorists see marathon runs as a target!
