meat and your sex drive...

Has anyone heard the ridiculous claim that people who don't eat meat have a lower sex drive than those who do eat meat because there's something in meat that revs up the ol' sex drive?  I've heard this one a couple times and it makes me so angry!  >:(  Like people need meat to be "normal" or something.  Argh!

heh heh, you assume i got some. what am i getting? lunch, i swear, i had to go to teach last night!

i'm still debating what "kind of girl" i am in a hetero-kind of context. uhh, it's weird but in kind of a delightful way. i think of the last couple of women i went on dates with and it was very like, uhh, i need to go home and feed the cats.... it was refreshing to spend time getting to know someone who didn't make me want to run home to the cats! it's esp. nice because he's also vegan, so there is a lot of common ground there already re: politics and whatnot. we're doing dinner (not sure if cooking or getting) and watching some movie thing on 9  1  1 conspieray theeroies (i mispelled so the you know what can't spy me down!!).

my dry spell is over

:) baypuppy, you... it's good to know people are (or will be) getting some. 

I wonder if all of this dry spell breaking is 7-7-07 related?  :o

Hmmm---7/7/07 related...that's a good theory! I hope all of our dry spells will be ending soon--personnally I could use a thunder storm!

Good luck with the dinner/movie date Baypuppy! And I'm sure the "you know what" is already spying on you!

As a child of the 60's, following the last few posts, hey! The aging hippies (the originals!) are unfriendly because of the "paranoia" thing against The Man--you know (or maybe you whippersnappers don't  ;))--"never trust anyone over 30." Well when you pass 40 something, it becomes just "never trust anyone!"  ;D ;D

BTW, just what is a whippersnapper?  ??? A whip-snapper wouldn't be a child...too young to be trusted with a whip...no one uses the word "stripling" anymore, which I believe refers to a young tree, as in sapling...they would strip the bark off trees for certain things and a stripling was old enough to be "stripped" without killing it, if done properly...

Oh no, another attack of Sidebar Disease!!! This is what happens when I spend all summer with my head wedged in 17th century comedies... ::)

I think Im just really angry at psuedo-hippies that I see at whole foods/other type of similiar markets. The dudes who have levi jeans on and pony tails and seem to treat the workers in the store like dirt, give you dirty looks, and just stand in your way in the aisles as if theyre the only people on the planet.

I cn sometimes understand the dirty looks. Im pretty tall and aparantly intimedating (6'5 235lbs) and I have crappy thrift store clothes or cut off shorts on and some weird offensive band tshirt. But Im polite and say excuse me and am always friendly.

Book and its cover and all. Am I makng any sense or rambling? Im hungover

6'5?? Well then I completely understand. I'd be giving you very dirty looks myself too.  :) Then running out to find the highest vegan heels ever.

Adam, you rock!  I'm disgruntled because I live in the IE and the only other place I make it to is OC for work.

Hippies aren't that bad.  Arcata ( ::) here she goes again) was the only place I've lived where when a person walks down the street, everyone passing by says hello and you have to be a hippy/neo-hippy to stand living there. 

Luckily I have more vegan-friendly grocery stores to shop at in the IE, so I don't bother going to WF.  It used to be the closest store to me and when I went in there people in general seemed affected, so maybe it's just a portion of the clientele they attract.  Every group has its share of arrogant arses or posers (do people still use that term).  I was at the co-op in Arcata one time and saw a group of neo-hippy youth in just-right hippy attire getting into an SUV.

This thread is making me chuckle...being born and raised in the Midwest, where people use "it's different" as an insult, anyone from California was considered to be stupid, out of touch and an air-head.... Anything wierd (to a midwesterner that means anything they and their ancestors haven't done for 3 generations) *had* to come from the West Coast!.... I've consciously tried to rid myself of these generational biases (which of course have no basis in reality!) but whenever I meet someone from CA I am automatically on my guard, even still.

That's funny.  When anything is especially backwards, I say with exasperation, "It's not like we're living in the midwest or south!"  PC - not at all, but I haven't broken myself of the habit.

haha, excellent

Theres a girl I know who is 6'1, and sometimes when we'd be hanging out Id have an increased attraction to her but I couldnt understand it. Then I realized it was when she wore her tall heels and shed almost be my height. Amazon women!

My bands name is "Life Crisis", so its just a way Ive been referred to from other people. But it fits pretty well, because Ive come to realize (through many people pointing it out) that I live and thrive when things are chaotic and unstructured.

haha, yeah..I used to do alot of hipy bashing in my younger days. these days im empathise more because at least they are trying to do something positive for the world...where most people do nothing or just compain without trying to make a sacrifice

OK, AC, you were kind enough to answer my first impertinent question, here's the second (and last, I promise.) In your previous avatar photo, were you a) picking your teeth, 2) making the "gag me" gesture or III) something else entirely which yabbit hasn't grokked?

haha, ask away....we're all a bit narcissitic arnt we? isnt that why myspace is so successful?

anyways, if I remember correctly I was picking my teeth and not making the gag motion, although Im not 100% certain of it, theres alot of time to kill in the tour van while driving

OMG! That is terrible! Why do people think the midwest is one big cow farm with bucked teeth kids running around carrying giant jugs that say "XXX" on them??? I mean  I get making fun of the south, but don't pick on the midwesthttp://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w26/MicahBaby_x3/dancingcow.gif

I get making fun of the south, but don't pick on the midwest!!!

I'm really not picking on anyone.  It's just regional elitism.  I suppose every region is afflicted with it.  Although your quote is really funny.

We do it in my part of Michigan too but for me it's more like humorously bashing my southern cousins not the South itself.  :D

Absolutely.  As soon as the rest of the country accepts that the West Coast rocks!  :P
