No one can tell you what you should or shouldn't eat. Eat whatever you feel is best.
However, with obesity getting out of control in America, it would be unwise to ignore some obvious causes to that problem.
"There is plenty of Calcium in milk. And milk is good for our bones." Yes and no. Bone degeneration is actually more prevalent in countries with higher dairy consumption. We weren't born to guzzle milk from bovine; it's just not a natural thing.
The arguments go both ways, and everyone has an opinion. The truth is that we have problems in this country regarding obesity. If anything, it can probably be traced to our consumption of processed foods and beverages, especially sugary drinks.
As for me, I've recently cut my red meat and dairy consumption, and although I'm not overweight, I've noticed that some of the excess "flab" has gone away. Ultimately, the fatties will die, either by gluttony or by zombies. After all, rule #1 of surviving the zombie apocalypse is "cardio," and the obese will be the first ones fed to the horde.11 months ago
You expect potheads to keep other potheads legal? You've got to be kidding....
I see people driving drunk and getting DUI's all the time, yet bars are still in business. I don't understand how your idea makes any sense.11 months ago

Maybe if you spent your energy in places other than internet forums you'd actually get somewhere.
You've incorrectly assumed my political demographic, n00b.
"TruthSeeker" and the rest of you assume that a job fair for "younger people" is discriminatory because it's targeted at, well how shall I say it, "younger people."

You had your day, oldtimer. Just sit back and collect your social security that I'm paying you.
Being "politically correct" as to not offend the easily-offended (erhem, like you) makes this world suck. We've become a society of thin-skinned, nimby-loving, spineless pack mules thanks to this parasitic mindset.11 months ago
It's a miracle this place has been open for 65 years.
No credit or debit? You must be out of your mind. Who carries cash anymore these days? And I'd be willing to bet that most people will pass on Pete's instead of hunt for an ATM during their lunch hour.
But most importantly, this place is called "Pete's Fish and Chips." While the fish is decent, the chips are disgusting. Absolutely horrendous. I find myself drowning them in sauce (which is an extra $$$$ charge, I might add) in order for me to gag them down my gullet.
Lastly, I've never experienced good (or even decent) customer service at these places. Pete's appears to be running on an out-dated business model that can't even harness the quality customer service from their roots.Mar 23, 2012
It's obvious that Heather is still in High School. I love the English 101 conclusion at the end.
While a required course on religion might not be the best idea, I completely disagree that elective courses on religion should be done away with. By so doing, you are destroying your very own idea of freedom.
As others have said, banning a book, any book, is a mistake you gravely underestimate. Mar 8, 2012
