READ BETWEEN THE LI(N)ES

Just to revive an old favorite of mine, I give to you: Björn Hammarskjöld! Believe it or not, he’s a former chief doctor of pediatrics, has a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and is also a member of some academy in Strömstad consisting of scholars engaged in research, education and information. *blablaba*

Anyway, he wrote a hilarious article in September, debating why the most rational thing to do is to eat meat. And lot’s of it.

I’m not saying everyone has to be a vegetarian (even though people eating less meet would make me kinda super happy), but his discussion consisted of how vegetarians need to eat 18 kg cucumber a day in order to get enough calories, and that they’d probably die for not getting enough nutrition anyway.

And since the cucumber is all a vegetarian will eat, one can tell how extremely foolish it would be to only eat vegan? Yes. He was actually being serious.

Let me give you some of the numbers supporting his thesis:

  • 0,35 kg meat and 0,25 kg butter uses 0,3 of the water from our fields and all the other water can circulate and won’t affect the resources
  • 18 kg cucumber demand artificial fertilizers and both phosphorus and fossil fuel

His end line was: Consequently, being a vegetarian is equally wasteful for both the earth’s resources as well as your own health. As a meat eater you save the resources and receive optimal health.

I’m a firm believer that education is the best tool against social science issues such as racism, anti-feminism and other problems that have their roots in bigotry, or more mildly put – simply never learnt how to reason about such questions and structures.

Therefore people like this scare me, how someone appearing so good on paper can say such stupid, yet in this case soooo funny, things. And it taught me a lesson to not think too much of well-educated peeps. As well as not too little about the one’s that are not.

Note to self: General knowledge no one needs uni for.

    I think what you posted was very logical. However, what about this?
    what if you added a little content? I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., but what if you
    added a post title that makes people want more? I mean READ BETWEEN THE LI(N)ES – Just Wow is kinda vanilla.

    You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create article headlines to
    grab people interested. You might try adding a video
    or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could
    make your website a little livelier.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!

    problems with hackers and I’m taking a look at alternatives
    for an additional platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me
    in the direction of a great platform.
