• No Worries, the vegan Filipino restaurant in Oakland, is closing its doors on Sept. 1 and transitioning to a food truck. I'm bummed because I won't be able to get delicious pancit at pretty much every hour, but on the other hand, I love to eat standing up in a parking lot surrounded by millions of assholes so hey, yay food trucks!

More than 20% of dead Chilean Sea Bass that's marked as sustainable actually isn't! Quelle surprise! Seriously, all these people out to make the oceans "sustainable" via murdering fish more sustainably are just kidding themselves. There will always be fuck-ups when it comes to killing en masse. The only way to guarantee that your fish isn't actually endangered? Not eating it! What's the deal? Is eating fish strictly a diet thing? All these heifers on their creepy paleoatkins diets ordering steamed salmon and eating two bites before they're all, "I'm full!" Lies, heifers! LIES! Eat seven baked potatoes and two cakes and we'll talk in the morning.

• Dr. Michael Gregor started a website called Nutrition Facts. Sexy name, sexier content! Get science-based, fact-based info on all things nutrition from a doctor who actually knows stuff about nutrition. Unlike 99% (guesstimate) of doctors who receive like 4 hours of nutrition training in their entire schooling and then go around dispensing advice like they're experts. What a racket! My 2,000-year-old former physician was actually worried that I'd die from lack of cheeseburgers, after my blood work came back perfect. What a world!

You can have our fish! It's not ours anyway.
​• Otters are back in English rivers! Yay! After near extinction because of hunting and pollution, the otters' return means the rivers are the healthiest they've been in years. Now, if they could just stop eating all those fish, don't they know all the fish are for humans? We didn't evolve to the top of the heap to just let other animals live in peace, JEEZ!

PETA is gonna launch a porn site. They're ready to get even sexier with it/make me puke with embarrassment!

Some guy on Salon.com said that vegan meat products are stupid. He's stupid! People who are just like, "If you miss meat so much, then just eat meat!" are forgetting that most people who stop eating meat aren't doing so because they hate the taste of it. They're doing so because they hate the whole "killing a living being just for my dinner" thing. And for those who bitch about how processed it is: DON'T EAT IT! And also, do you want to know what went into that chicken breast of yours? Because it ain't exactly natural!

• Have you all seen Questlove's website where he talks about his impressions of all the celebrities he's met? Because it's currently the best thing on the Internet. My favorite one changes about every five minutes, but I'm obsessed with his take on Erykah Badu, who is vegan and apparently sexually irresistible. WELCOME TO THE CLUB, LADY! Anyway, he talks about all the things they did during one of her recording sessions and it involves eating a lot of saatan [sic] [also, how seitan should be spelled], almond milk, and whole foods. And what that, I'm off to crack the flux capacitor so I can time travel back to 1996.

A mama bear killed her cub and then herself so both of them didn't have to be tortured on a bile farm anymore. Humans abused her to a point that she'd rather kill her baby and then herself so they didn't have to live in hell any longer. I honestly can't type about this without crying, the whole thing is so massively fucked up and sad. Anyway, you can read this post to figure out how to help stop this, sign this petition, or maybe even you could be the person to actually put an end to it. Seriously, one person could do it, and maybe that's you? I will totally help with publicity and being loud as shit and never stop talking about it, so set it up and then let's get it done.

Make me these vegan s'mores pocket pies immediately!

• Now, please excuse me, I'm off to Portland for Vida Vegan Con! See you next week! If I decide to return to this hell hole!

Is "Chilean sea bass" even a species of fish? I've heard that it's many similar, meaty white fishes lumped under a marketing name of "Chilean sea bass." 

Also, we shouldn't be eating much fish any way because of the toxins that accumulate in fish meat. 

As for not eating fish is good for the environment, you need to consider all environments. Farming for vegetables has changed more of the earth's terrain than probably any other food-making activity. Shall we stop raising vegetables too?

Over 80% of all land used for agriculture is actually used to grow grain and seed to feed farmed animals. If we weren't exhausting the planet's cultivable land to support our ever-growing addiction to animal products, not only would human health and the environment make a drastic turn for the better, but we'd be able to eliminate world hunger.

The whole meat-eating "environmentalist" really bothers me as it's a total oxymoron. Are people not aware of the UN study showing that factory farming accounts for more greenhouse gas production than all the trains, planes, boats and cars in the world combined? Forget saving the whales, how about we stop eating them and their kin?

we should stop feeding grains to livestock. we should definitely stop doing that.

Why so angry?  Can't we exert change in the world without being the angry other?  No wonder my husband dislikes the word 'vegan' and also the reason I don't publicize my VEGAN juice and smoothie truck as vegan.  I want everyone to feel welcome to come and enjoy something healthy for them that doesn't hurt animals.

Ok can I just say I ain't no vegan (yet) but if Laura writes something it's one part awesome and one part funny. if you miss any of one part, you miss the point. I mean I eat bacon and if Laura told me to eat something else or whatever, I'd hella do it. Like give up bacon. And that says a LOT.

@Suzanne - It seems you don't want to welcome any vegan customers because of overgeneralizations.

Huh. I don't see angry, I see funny.

Dunno if you're watching Breaking Bad this season but in a recent episode they are examining lab notes for Walt's former lab tech and it includes amongst all the other things about meth a recipe for vegan s'mores.

Awesome! While the rest of the world wants Walt's meth formula, I want to learn Gale's coffee recipe.
