Your pointless thoughts & observations

this obsession w the dieting thing feels like a new thing, is it a new thing? how long has it been going on for?

 

is it a reflection of some deeper issue in our society?

 

how does it correlate to the increasing availability of anime boobies?

Anecdotal stuff that doesn't address any fwp:

 

There's a lot I could say about LA, growing up an hour outside of it in the "Inland Empire". A lot of stories, lots of trips there.

 

Saw AE there twice, Richard Devine, and loads of other bands.

 

I will never move there, for various reasons.

 

Took my wife to see Interpol there about a year ago, got stranded in Chinatown for the night. it was interesting how kind of vacant and in decay that part of town was. So many empty buildings, and one building with nothing but various statues.

Props for getting a picture on the one day out of the year it's overcast in L.A.

At least since sixties in the west, like macrobiotic diet etc, but I'm going to guess it has been happening for centuries or millennias.

 

Maybe the difference is now that in modern societies even the commoners can eat selectively instead of whatever they happen to get so it makes sense that the dieting fads have permeated all the levels of society.

What if a single ant species evolved hyper-specialization to the point that some were like spiders and some were wasps and some were like centipedes and could swim underwater and some grew like big mean badgers too and they were all still totally all about just defending their nests and the queen was like this uber badass bitch ant but still no one ever got to her because obviously their other defenses are totally killer and can handle almost anything. Would be scary but cool.

Do people in america eat fish and chips and if so, what is it called

Yeah, the typical seafood restaurant serves fish and chips as "fish & chips." Thinner chips/fries oftentimes. Malt vinegar yes, mushy peas no. Might be a little harder to come by from a fast food joint, though I know WA state has a place called Ivar's that's pretty okay.

Re: chicken and fries: was pretty much my ultimate food ever since I was a little kid. "Popeye's" is the spot that still fills that void for me, but shit I gotta stay away from that place.

Makes me think of Aliens, they could kind of specialize but only in a host-genetics appropriation way.

 

Also:

 

 big mean badgers

Nein. I thought their closest land dwelling relative was the hippo

 

Edit : hippo like creature . If you look at those weird dugongs you can tell their ancestors Entered the water long after our streamlined dolphin friends - they look so munted

The Aliens comics had some of the creatures becoming super specialized I vaguely remember. They were probably about as well thought out as my 2 AM idea :)

 

thats shit. imagine being an ant when you could have been a wasp

seriously but also ants are super fucking cool and better in some ways

Actually where my thoughts came from, was about how similar wasps and ants are, didn't realize they had a common ancestor though. I want an entire Planet Earth season just dedicated to ants.
