RE: Fatphobia?
Some of the container veggies from last year. We even grew corn successfully!

Why Muffs?

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

I have an apple tree in my backyard, but I dond have to do anything to that, so it lives. :-)

Funny how organic apples look so gross and ugly. They have brown spots all over them and are horribly misshapen. But once I got past that, they are fine to eat, rather delish!

I wish I had the enegy, or talent for a vegetable garden...hard to keep the rabbits and deer out of it though.



Quick rule of thumb with almost all herbs - the more you ignore them, neglect them the stronger they grow. Plant em, give em a drink, make sure they have sunlight at least 1/2 a day and ignore them. With most herbs it's all about sunshine. Most are basically weeds.

I guess that would explain it. I drowned the thing. The week time frame was an exaggeration...I had it for a few months.The plant only grew these tiny little leaves, not those huge ones I am used to seeing whenever I got to a vietnamese place for Pho soup. So I thought maybe some miracle grow would help. It was miracle death.

I'm not sure if you're aware or not, but there appears to be a huge fucking field full of corn in your backyard...
Just thought I'd bring that to your attention so you can save yourself a pot.

Yer it's real ... although notso much a phobia as a scapegoat?

In UK, we have vested interests on both sides making money outta fatty-hating. On the one hand, Coca Cola lectures doctors on nutrition/sugar levels - and on the other hand, the 'slimming industry' sponsors research into the 'obesity epidemic' so how can we be sure if any of the anti-fat stats n claims are true and not just another way of exploitation for profit?

A healthy fat fit person v. an unhealthy unfit thin person - who gets to live better/longer?

If what I've read is true, only a few percentage of people lose weight and keep it off - and yoyo dieting is worse for your health than losing the weight once.

I can understand there might be a point where obesity becomes a major health hazard but aren't we prejudiced to think skinny is better than curvy, judging by the majority of 'romantic leads' in Hollywood/TV/ advertisements - although it is getting a leeetle bit better - at least a big bum [butt] is allowed occasionally - almost compulsory in music videos ....

Easier to hate fatties than encourage respect, healthy eating and fitness by making it attractive to *all* shapes n sizes? What about extra tax on high levels of sugar and salt in foods and taking steps to ensure fat people get their fair share of employment/representation/nice clothes/ everything?

Also - what's so different to a heroin/ cocaine habit in which skinny models and ballet dancers indulge because of anti-fat prejudice [as well as cos they like it] as compared to 'drowning your sorrows' in food? And who wants to be laughed at in a gym/ doing sport? It *is* getting better - there's even a website for fit fatties - http://fitfatties.ning.com/

Interesting that the poorer you are, the more likely you are to be fat btw.

Aint we all equal in worth in Godless eyes?

Have you tried growing canola in pots? It might be easier than harvesting that field.
