    Re: Vegan Laws

    I like the short acronym. Though that leaves out products tested on animals, cruel circuses, bull-fighting, and chocolate made with slave child labour.

    What about just "Ahimsa" (non-harm)?

    Re: Things vegans don't worry about (list)...

    Yep. Everyone already agreed that vegan food spoils. Welcome to the table.

    I think this has just been a case of a very stupid misunderstanding gone way too far off track. Basically, no one here...

    I have no idea how you managed to get "vegan food can't spoil" out of any of those statements.

    Re: Things vegans don't worry about (list)...

    Of course it can go bad, but in my experience it takes way longer. There are a few vegan foods like rice that you have to be more careful about, but there are many more that have quite a forgiving...

    Re: Vegan Laws

    Apparently a Jewish Pharisee Rabbi, some 2,000 years ago, was asked whether he could explain the entire Torah while standing on one leg. He lifted a leg, and said something to effect of "Do not do to...

    Re: Tricks To Staying Vegan?

    Yeah, I know, the milk powder in chips is weird. I've noticed that plain chips never have it, so it must be something they use to help carry flavour, or perhaps to give the acidic ingredients like...

    Re: Things vegans don't worry about (list)...

    Well, apart from the big things like factoryfarm atrocities and climate change, there are various small benefits I've found to veganism too:

    Don't worry, life doesn't end at 20. In fact, the world you live in is just a make-believe, miserable parody of real life. Your life will greatly improve during your twenties, and get even better in...
