I've never met a hefty person who eats clean. Have you? Something to think about anyways.
I'm not saying that eating this way means that you're eating healthily or that you're not avoiding junk food.

However, I did meet a vegetarian who was fat. I mean, I can see why this could happen, but I was still pretty surprised.

Two of my besties are vegan and they are very curvy, in fact one is considered overweight medically, which I still struggle to understand but it is what it is.

A lot of that has to do with the overprocessed shit food they (specifically, a couple of friends back home) eat.

Faux-chicken nuggets are not healthy. Vegan ice cream is not healthy.

Vegans can fry things, vegans can use sugar.

The vegans who do it for health reasons? They are usually skinnier. Then the environmentalists who don't like multinationals and monocrops.

Then the animal rights people. It's in that order, as far as I can tell, based on my experience back home.

I go to my second period class.  I see other adults go in the classroom, and students are sitting in a circle talking.  I realize that class has been changed for some reason.  A student comes and tells me that there is a class meeting for a school project. I've not been told about this beforehand.

What does it say when I'm told by my students instead of my co-teacher/coordinator about schedule changes?   :rolleyes:

That is fucked up. I would be so angry that you are considered beneath the students in regards to information. It takes very little effort to inform you about such a change.

Take the rest of the day off. When questioned about it, tell coteachers that the same students who informed you of your schedule change also told you to go home for the rest of the day.  :smiley:

Hey CO2 - I sent you a PM but it's not in my sent messages box. Did you get it?

If only I had such a brazen personality.
I guess it really got to me today because I had to carry my computer, book, whiteboards, markers, and erasers to the class farthest away from our teachers' room.

Thanks for the humor. :)

I am ****** sick of dealing with the third world mentality wrt what is appropriate human temperature.

There are piles of peer reviewed studies showing that being too hot is far more damaging to human health than being too cold. In fact, being too cold is almost oxymoronic if you are not living in a third world shit hole.

I also have medical devices that are being turned off because they don't agree with the preconceived notion of acceptable temperature. Ditto the advice straight from two separate doctors.

Medical aside, even the old wives tale rings true. "Put on another sweater."

There's no advice for cooling down it seems, although seeing a few of my co-teachers in their bra and underwear wouldn't be the worst fate, I suppose.

Yeah, this isn't at work but I'm battling with my MIL to protect my son from overheating.... this kid spent 4 months with a tube stuck in his throat and she wants to cook him.

My wife is just meekly listening to her.

I'm doing storytelling for all grades and I find that at least a third of these books have an evil stepmother in them somewhere. hahahaha

Loki88,

I don't envy you.

I used to get an earful from a former colleague and friend that went through the same struggles/battles.

Thankfully for him, his wife was much more assertive and firm with her mother (that is a razor's edge to navigate).

How many more years do you think you will have to endure?

Oh, an opportunity to rant at misguided vegan/vegetarians!  :azn:

Vegetarians have no clue what they are doing, and have zero understanding of human evolution. Homo sapiens are most adapted to MEAT AND PLANT (hunter/gather). Clueless cultists decide they are going to ONLY eat the plants, EXCLUDE animal foods, BUT include grains/sugar. What logic is that!?

It is irrational, and the results are what you would expect.
