When quizies attack: Next on Fox
This one's been passed around more than your cousin Nancy:
You're A Theory of Justice!
by John Rawls
In the beginning, you lived in a town. The town had many problems!
Rather than moving, you decided to come up with the idea for the best town ever. Going
all the way back to the original position, you created the idea for the best town ever!
Lo and behold, the best town ever looked almost identical to the town you lived in. You
decided to stay in the town. Now you resent people mistaking your refined thought
experiments for "the wall of stupidity" in high school debate

Meat-free's (not) the way to be!
Here begins the saga of Sharyn's adventures with vegetarian/vegan "meat alternatives"! "But Sharyn!" I hear you say, "didn't you say that the people of PETA are crazed lunatics and vegetarianism is for flakes?" Well, maybe. Yes, the people of PETA probably have some kinds of psychological disorders resulting from eating too much seitan and wearing hemp. I don't think there's many non- seitan-eating and hemp-wearing people who would argue with that. However, the majority of vegetarians are perfectly normal, sane, level-headed people who feel that vegetarianism and veganism is just a personal choice and not an excuse to bathe fur-wearing socialites in red paint and tell their children that their parents are murderers. Vegetarians by and large are sane people who just happen to not eat meat. So with that in mind...
Up for today is Gimme Lean
, by Light Life. I purchased this on a whim, the label proudly proclaiming "Makes great 'meat'balls!" I mean, how was I to refuse a statement like that? I love
a good meatball, so why not give it a try? Well, here's why not: It basically tasted like a big mouth-full of cumin
. Which is probably fine, if you've never tasted real meatballs and don't recognise why Gimme Lean "meat"balls are such a travesty to the culinary world. So to summerize: Live Long, Travel Light, and don't eat Light Life's Gimme Lean ground "burger".
