Scared into Veganism

I have nothing against the vegan lifestyle. It’s a way to live life and I am a firm believer that as long as it is not a threat to anyone else’s safety, people have the right to live however they damn well please. But I heard about this book on vegetarianism that I firmly disagree with.

“Vegan is Love” is a children’s book written and illustrated by Ruby Roth. At first, I thought that was this was a cool idea. Roth is a vegan activist and a mother who is raising her kid in the vegan lifestyle. Nothing wrong with that, right? I mean, if you can raise your kid in the faith you believe in, why not vegetarianism? And through a book? That’s sensible.

WRONG.

I heard about this on the Today Show where they also talked to a nutritionist and a child psychologist who raised some really good points.

See the Today Show clip here.

The book depicts some images of animal cruelty which isn’t all that brutal but are enough to instill fear in children. It’s almost like the sole purpose of the book is to scare kids out of eating meat.

I’m pretty sure that’s a bad way to teach someone how to embrace a certain lifestyle. It’s like teaching a kid to be a Catholic by scaring the shit out of them with stories about Hell and the devil. Plus, is it really a good idea to make food (at least meat) an object of evil, an enemy? Food should not be a source of frustration. That screws up kids and adults alike. Food should be approached with appreciation, not fear.

I can see it already. It’s like sex ed. They scared us with STDs and HIV and the potential of getting our little hearts broken by guys who will never bother to call the next morning and that the only salvation is through abstinence. But look at our relationship with sex now.

There will be vegan kids who will grow up to spite their vegan elders and eat meat.

(as appropriate to both situations but I’m sure you got that, wink wink.)

(I’m not gonna get a lower grade for being perverted am I?)

Getting hitched on the 29th

So Prince William (whose hair appears to be thinning) and Kate Middleton are getting married sometime within the next 48 hours. NBC said it’s 3am American time so if it’s that early, I can’t be bothered to care.

If you didn’t already know, I hate weddings and marriages and anything related to happily ever afters because I’m a downer like that. I’m sick of people getting married acting like it’s the best thing since sliced bread. One in two marriages here end in divorce so good luck with that congratulations.

Anyhow, there is one reason I’m not completely hating this wedding. It inspired an interesting beer from BrewDog, a badass-looking brewing company. It’s called the Royal Virility Performance (fancy name, huh?) And yes, it’s supposed to make the wedding consummation business easier:

From BrewDog.com

It’s an awesome idea. A buzz plus an erection has got to lead to some good time, yes?

According to Panoringan’s OC Weekly blog, BrewDog claims three bottles of these babies is just like popping that little blue pill. Btw. I highly recommend reading her blog, it’s a good read, short and sweet. I’m a sucker for sexual innuendos and stuff like that.

…Wait.

Horny Goat Weed? Classy indeed! That sounds wrong in three different ways and it makes me want to drink this beer even more. But wtf is it? *Googles*Horny goat weed is a plant that apparently makes your penis and your bones hard. Sweet. I just like the name since I have no use for it, obviously.

“Yeah right, Alex. I’ve seen your penis.” So has your mom!

BrewDog even sent a bottle to Prince William for his wedding night. I wonder if he’s going to get offended if he gets it? The dude’s 28! I doubt he has any trouble in that department.

You can buy the Royal Virility Performance beer here if it’s still available. If you try it, let me know how it worked out for you! Pics or it didn’t happen.

My Anthro professor has a thing for kittens. Every lecture, there’s at least 3 slides with cats in them, one being from the I can haz cheezburger empire. One of his TAs was kind enough to let us in on a secret:

Cute is a hormone.

Oxytocin to be exact. Apparently, when we see something cute the brain releases this feel good hormone. Let me demonstrate:

Feel the oxytocin, baby!

But oxytocin is more than just cute. There’s also a huge surge of it when mom breastfeeds and when a woman orgasms: both activities prompting women to form a deep bond with their infant or partner.

And you know what the secret of happy relationships is? Yep, Oxytocin.

According to a research done in the University of Wisconsin-Madison, monkeys in long standing relationships have high levels of oxytocin. Ladies and gentlemen, these monkeys are lucky, happy monkeys.

With more oxytocin, monkeys groom each other more, fuck more, and yes ladies, cuddle more. And here is the best part:

There’s been other researches on this. Look it up, you know you want to, you desperate, lonely, stuck-in-an-unhappy-relationship you.

Do you know how awesome this sounds? It’s like a medical cure for lazy, clueless significant others! Imagine your boyfriend who rolls over right after you make love or the girlfriend who can’t leave you alone when you need some time to yourself. Then imagine jacking them up with oxytocin. Man, wouldn’t that be nice?

Btw, it’s my anniversary today so if you have a syringe filled with oxytocin or coke, please, shoot me up.

I stumbled upon this cute little letter from a man to his ex-wife.

"I was thinking about you the whole time, baby"

(I suggest you read the whole thing. It gets better.)

You know what’s sad? I probably would.

As a casual gamer, I’ve come to learn that most video games now aren’t complete without bad story lines, so-so gameplay and most importantly, fan service (yes, I’m talking about the sexy/porno kind).

Kicking ass and looking good

I’m not as big of a nerd as other gamers are but I do notice that many fighting games are proponents of fan service. Take the Dead or Alive, Tekken, and even Street Fighter series. And why not? All the jumping, bouncing, and grunting has got to be hot.

Meet Morrigan. I first met her in Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and got to know her bawdy, semi-nude self in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. She’s in your face sexy and her combos aren’t bad. Finish arcade mode with her and you get the character model. Sorry boys, she’s still dressed. Shouldn’t they just leave her naked? Come on, nothing could possibly hold that corset up.

Jump to 0:20 for your dirty (not to mention cliche) fantasy.

Too bad Bayonetta isn’t Marvel or Capcom. That whole game was smutty.

Her suit's made of her hair. And it comes off for her special moves.
