    Honestly, I think the idea of being a vegan is stupid. I mean, I couldn't last more than a few days without meat, cheese or milk!

    ctually,anyone eating an all organic, vegan based diet is simply a fruitcake, in the figurative and possibly the literal sense of the term.

    Yeah you organic eaters aren't cool enough to hang with the rest of crowd who the eat ecoli, pesticide laden food outdoors by the break room in the rain or in the bathroom at school when the teachers aren't watching.

    Anyone not eating an all organic, vegan based diet is simply barbaric.

      First, I don't believe you can adequately describe the word "barbaric" or its origin from the barbarians. I do not profess to promote GMO seeded crops, yet total organic is stupid also. When the locusts & pests come in force, you will simply starve, unless you adopt to a vegative diet where some pesticides are intelligently used. Vegan, going against milk & cheese harvested without harm, and naturally produced, is another indicator of your lack of consideration for adequate and good diet. Simply put, you can go overboard with any diet, fad, etc...but keeping centrist will do you best.
