    Drove through St. Louis with a buddy and we stopped to have dinner with one of his old professors. Went to a pizza place and I took a bite and said, “What the fuck? This is the worst cheese ever.”

    We went to a BBQ place first but they had just run out of food. My buddy got mad and asked why they couldn’t just make more. I was speechless.

    And that’s my experience with St. Louis.

    There used to be a good Mexican place in Gillette, but I haven't been there much since COVID so I'm not sure if it's still around. Was the only redeeming thing about that place. Well, that and the view of the Bighorns

    Pappy’s bbq is quite good but they run out fast. That’s the beginning of the story of how I went to Hamburger Mary’s with a coworker I barely knew without realizing what it is.

    Was just awoken by my first ever nuclear war nightmare. Walked into a room of solemn looking people staring at their phones who looked up at me with empty stares. They let me know an incoming ICBM strike had been detected 10 minutes prior and they were saying their goodbyes. My POV switches to a version of that Princeton Plan A simulation. Saw a few headed my way get knocked out by Vandenberg’s defense system. Then a bunch of other shit came flying in from offshore. POV switch again to being on a SCARAB with Mitch Buchanan surveying the damage from the bay. Warships were on the horizon and boats were sinking all around me. He asked me to radio some shit. I woke up as I was fumbling with it

    Plan A video for reference:

    Vegetarian typically still includes dairy and eggs

    Vegan is strictly plant-based

    I had a weird revelation last night while painting.

    The best art I do I’m kind of doing the artist thing where I’m self-sabotaging. It sounds stupid but the old brain works weird and I like to drink or get high as shit as I’m doing it.

    The ability to do it sober is there, but I kind of don’t like doing it that way…most of the time. Creative brain comes out when shit is a bit off.

    It’s awful and also amazing at the same time. I enjoy basically getting stupid by myself. So I’m trying to learn to manage that?

    (Like I said, this is all stupid and I realize that but the amount of stuff I’ve done is better. My life is in a good spot, so when I decide on a weekend to go into a weird spot…I choose it? I feel like a pyscho even saying this)

    Long story short, I made bet we people from work I could go vegan for 2 weeks (except for alcohol). It wasn’t that bad actually. I dont know that I could have done it much longer. The worst part was going to a work dinner and basically only able to eat a cauliflower, which was great. However when everyone else was eating beautiful looking tomahawk ribeyes and strip steaks. That wasn’t fun.

    Kind of depends on the reason why. If because you don’t want to kill animals, great. If it’s for ecological reasons, produce farms still are awful for the environment.

    It's more about the way the animals are treated

    I read a story a few days ago about how Smithfield needed to get rid of pigs that they couldn't process during peak covid. They did this by herding them into sealed barns and then pumping hot air and steam into the barns until all the pigs had basically cooked to death.

    Cattle produce a ton of greenhouse gasses but have largely taken over bison as a huge herbivore on the bison’s historical grazing range.

    Large scale farming is unlike anything that has ever happened to the landscape. I mean it leaches most of the nutrients out of the soil such that we need to pump millions or billions (idk) gallons of commercial nutrients back in just to make things grow.

    And commercial farming created the dust bowl, it kills tons of animals during harvest, among other times, and it also creates a ton of greenhouse gasses through fuel and fertilizer use. And depletes water reserves even in places in droughts.

    It’s really a lot closer than you’d think.

    I work with a Vegan ortho trauma doc who pushes his Veganity onto his patients. A couple years back we had a 20 yr old kid come in who ended up losing both legs below the knee due to a horrific woodchipper accident and the doc told him he needed to go Vegan. Kid just lost both legs, his fiancee (left him because she didn't want to deal with it), and this clown is telling him to go Vegan...smh
