I went to the doctor. He said, “Don’t eat anything fatty.”

I said, “What, like butter?”

He said, “NO. Just don’t eat anything, Fatty!”

The cold and flu and vape season

Apparently, the symptoms of dying from vaping are so similar to the symptoms of dying from the flu and pneumonia that doctors can’t tell the dif until the post-mortem.

The next time I see another cloud of chemically-cherry-scented vapor billowing out from some nimrod’s car in front of me, idiot-signalling his underdeveloped neocortex and forcing me to shut all my windows and turn off my heater to no avail, I will relax and think, “Tick, tock, asshole. Save a puff for Jesus.”

Brilliant and scorching documentary: That Sugar Film

by allthoughtswork

Finally found this online for free (at least in the U.S.). Anyone who eats food should watch this, twice.

It’s rife with British celebrity cameos, eye-rolling humor, engaging special effects, and the most mind-blowing game of sugary hide-and-go-seek you’ll ever play in the natural foods section of your grocery store. Dude eats “health food” and blows up like an American in a matter of months.

And the sweet stuff is just the tip of the death iceberg….

Macy’s is selling the Anorexia Starter Plate

The plates in Macy's

Annoying interviewer is the female version of Piers Morgan

by allthoughtswork

Is this an interview or a stoning? Every time I hear that forceful, self-important inhale of hers, I know she’s gearing up to take another whack.  This is one of the most sloped-foreheaded, uninformed, unempathetic women I’ve ever witnessed. Besides evangelists, I mean.

Come to think of it, she’s probably one of the traumatized children he’s talking about it. She sounds triggered. Hmm.

Gabor Maté is a sage. His approach to addiction and mental health removes the sting and stigma while simultaneously empowering the sufferer–let’s see religion or Prozac do that. I’ll wager my house she’s intimately acquainted with both.
