I am feeling uninspired today.
There are plenty of topics I would like to discuss that have been making my scratch me head lately, here they are at random….
Like, why do people salt their food BEFORE they even taste it. It’s like an automatic reflex to dump loads of salt on their plate upon the waiter giving it to them. I never add salt to my food, so I don’t get it?
Why do people here in 2010 start smoking? Or why don’t people make more of an effort to quit? You practically can’t smoke anywhere anymore…and the harmful effects that cigarette smoke causes to not only YOU but those AROUND YOU in the form on second hand smoke, and even third hand smoke (the lingering scent on your clothing). The cancer sticks need to go, people. I get you’re addicted and it’s tough to quit. But make an effort to stop. I ESPECIALLY don’t get pregnant women that won’t quit. Are you THAT selfish? I am not trying to be harsh, but I just don’t get it?
Why do people STILL let their kids drink tons of soda. Doesn’t EVERYONE know how bad soda is for you? WHY do people still drink it? This is not meant to insult anyone, I genuinely don’t get it? I mean, I think drinking soda is pointless. It’s loaded with empty calories, causes obesity, rots your teeth, and is terrible for your overall health…even diet soda (which can be worse). There are some sodas that contain the recipe for Benzene, a harmful chemical that is known to be carcinogenic (cancer causing). Pepsi recently changed their formula, but their are still companies that haven’t like Sunkist. In my opinion, soda is pretty much poison. But that’s just me. I can understand someone that enjoys the taste of soda having an occasional glass, I guess. But I still don’t get keeping liters of it in your home and letting your children have it whenever they want. I mean,with all do respect, raise your children however you want to–but I just don’t get it? I would MUCH rather eat a dessert, with as much sugar, and none of the preservatives or chemicals than drink a glass of soda. Again, that’s just me I guess.
I don’t get how people call themselves animal activists when they walk around in fur coats and their favorite food is Veal. I mean, live your life how you want. I am all about that, and am SO not anti-meat, dairy, etc. I don’t eat it….but I believe if you consume organic, local meats that are more humanely raised then you’re doing your part. If you want to wear fur, that’s fine, that’s your right, I just don’t like when you call yourself an “animal activist,” meaning you only care about dogs and cat (which is fine) but you are not an activist.. Not many people know about how terrible the Veal industry is, the consumption went down about two thirds since all the reports came out about it a few years ago. Veal is an inevitable by product of the commercial dairy industry–the dairy industry keeps cows pregnant year round so WE can drink their milk. The babies are stripped away from their mothers, fed formula, and put in crates where they can not stand up so that their meat is more “tender” for the consumers. It’s a disgusting practice, and many people just don’t want to know. The fur industry is probably the most disgusting, inhumane I have ever seen in my life. You can see for yourself here. I am not trying to get all PETA on you, but I think people need to be aware. If you are wearing fur, it’s most likely coming from China…where they skin dogs and cats for their fur (which is what most people over here are more compassionate towards). I am happy to see so many celebs getting naked for the cause, and I understand that I may still own some leather items so I am not perfect. I just don’t get this day in age why people STILL wear real fur? I am not trying to offend anyone, but again, I just don’t get it?
I am sure there are many people saying “how CAN’T Laury eat meat, I just don’t get it.” —and I am cool with that 😉
Why IS a raven like a writing desk?
Why am I slacking on my Holiday Shopping and Card writing this year? I need to get on the ball.
Why is hot chocolate SO much better with marshmallows on top?
Why do some people post EVERY single move they make on facebook. I am talking about every fight they have with a spouse, when they go to the bathroom, when they eat, when they sleep, when they wake up, what they are wearing, every minor life event that happens on a daily basis. I have been known to update my status every now and then, but some people are just extreme? Do I REALLY need to know that you just pumped gas and had a fight with your husband over who was picking the kids up from school, really? DO I really need to know that you just fed your dog? I mean, a lot of peoples statuses are cute, innocent, and not updated several times a day. It’s the ones that flood my news feed with irrelevant details about every move they make that I just don’t get it. I also don’t get sharing VERY intimate details of your life over facebook statuses…it can be uncomfortable at times.
Why do some people HATE vegetables? I mean, not a vegetable that they like unless it is in the form of a deep fried potato. I guess this isn’t too crazy of a question, but it is for me…because I think they are wonderful, so I just don’t get it.
Why do people constantly eat foods that upset their stomachs. There are too many people popping antacids, and not making the connection that is it NOT NORMAL to have to use those things. They completely mess up your system, and there is a connection you are probably not making. However, many do not want to change. I don’t really understand how you can walk around uncomfortable all your life, not wanting to do something to change that. There are ways to enjoy food without needing to pop a Pepcid. I just don’t get why you wouldn’t want to do that? I think a lot of it has to do with not really KNOWING that is is NOT normal, and what to do to make it stop. More on the topic of antacids and stomach problems coming soon.
Why do we (myself included) complain in the summer when it gets too hot, then complain in the winter when it gets too cold. It’s like we’re never satisfied. I guess people in California don’t have this problem. Living in the Philadelphia area, no matter the time of year, we can always complain about the weather. I don’t get it, but I do it too.
By the way….WHY is it SO cold today? The wind is killin’ me 😉
That is enough of my daily ponderings. Again, I was not aiming to insult anyone…I genuinely just don’t get it because I have a whole other way of thinking than some people. Just throwing it out there…maybe someone can enlighten me “as to why” on some of these things?
Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!
