    [–] Live Elimination Chamber 2019 Discussion Thread! Serdones 2 points ago in SquaredCircle

    Strategy for Bryan: Climb ontop of a pod, laugh as Joe struggles to climb up after you and chant, "Lose some weight Joe, lose some weight."

    Brogue Kick outta nowhere, eliminated in 18 seconds.

    If Kofi doesn't win, I'd settle for an oldass revenge rivalry, with Orton eliminating him with the punt to set up a match between them at WrestleMania.

    [–] 17 Elimination Chamber Fun Facts Serdones 2 points ago in SquaredCircle

    Survivor Series 2002 was my first live PPV and it was on my 10th birthday, so I've always felt a special affinity for the Elimination Chamber. Love seeing how much of a staple it's become.

    [–] How many of you who went vegan for health benefits actively challenge your beliefs? Serdones 1 points ago in vegan

    I get DHA and/or EPA from readily available foods ranging from kidney beans, brussels sprouts, edamame, etc. My doctor's never expressed a concern over me not absorbing those nutrients well from those sources.

    B12 is produced by a bacteria found in animal guts and in soil. The reason you don't find sufficient B12 in modern plant foods is because over-farming has left our soil deficient in cobalt, which is necessary for B12 to actually reach the plants. Gorillas still actually get their B12 from their plant diets, partly because they eat plant foods that have been fertilized by their and other animals' feces. Humans do actually produce B12 in their guts as well, but it's too far down in the gut to be absorbed. If anything, the absence of B12 in plant foods is unnatural and a result of human intervention.

    There is a vast number of human behaviors we used to consider ethical that we condemn today. That it was once an important part of our species' proliferation doesn't mean we can't reexamine the underlying beliefs today based on our changing circumstances.

    The vegan argument isn't based solely on ethics anyway. Personal and environmental health can be completely pragmatic justifications. We need to reduce meat consumption to offset methane emissions from the animal agriculture industry. That serves our interests as much as the rest of the world's.

    What are they losing from not eating meat besides protein and B-12, both of which can be supplemented with plant-based proteins or B-12 enriched foods and, y'know, a B-12 supplement?

    He's right though, honey bees aren't indigenous to North America and they've absolutely led to a decline in native bee species and other indigenous pollinators. Netflix's Rotten series has an episode on this.

    How low calorie are we talking? Because I don't think there's anything wrong with a small cookie with your coffee. A couple Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies are just 80 calories and I've done that with my morning coffee a couple times. Still winds up fitting just fine into my daily calories and macros. To me, a baked treat is the perfect accompaniment for coffee.

    [–] Why chickens wont be extinct if we stop eating them: junglefowl, chickens' ancestors Serdones 3 points ago in vegan

    The argument is that due to selective breeding over the centuries, modern domesticated chickens aren't cut out for surviving in the wild. There's definitely some logic there, but there are already modern examples of domesticated chickens thriving in the wild. I also think you can't discount the capacity for natural selection to take place and help previously domesticated animals adapt to their new wild environments over the generations.

    Well, I've only watched that one episode of Netflix's Rotten, but devoid of any opposing arguments, it did seem like a pretty compelling case for why our honey production has actually been harmful to North American ecosystems. Honey bees were introduced to North America by European settlers, making them an invasive species with no natural predators, which has caused harm to other indigenous pollinators that are actually more effective at pollinating indigenous flora. I'm definitely open to conflicting viewpoints and data, but this seems like an important discussion.

    Going on a week now and it's been great. Haven't really been missing meat and I've been hitting most my calorie and nutrient goals. I've already been in the habit of counting all my calories in MyFitnessPal for nearly a year now, so that part of the transition has been pretty easy.

    I have fallen a smidge short of my protein goal a few days, but it's been getting easier as I've prioritized more protein-enriched foods. Even something like a brand of whole grain bread with 5g of protein instead of 2.5g, while still having about the same amount of calories per slice, can go a long way as far as making my daily intake more efficient.

    Sunday my wife and I tackled our first vegan meal prep making vegan frozen breakfast burritos with potatoes, bell peppers, onions, imitation breakfast sausage and Follow Your Heart egg substitute. They're really tasty and keep me plenty satisfied in the morning. Can't wait to try out another meal prep next Sunday.

    [–] An observation about vegans Serdones 1 points ago in zerocarb

    A big part of the vegan argument is that it's not just a matter of personal health, but environmental health. If the animal agricultural industry is as harmful to the environment as some studies have claimed, can you really blame vegans for encouraging others to forego meat and animal byproducts?

    [–] If Seth just keeps doing this in his match against Brock at WrestleMania, he can’t lose. Serdones 7 points ago in SquaredCircle

    Seth's match should pull from all of the Lesnar vs. Indie Guy matches to date: Lots of springboards like AJ, lowblow like Bryan, and attacks to the gut like Balor. The he puts a bow on it with the Curbstomp.

    [–] Society needs to hurry up and go vegan Serdones 1 points ago in vegan

    Ooh, I didn't think of that. Taco Bell has always been my fast food go-to.

    [–] Do I even need to say anything? Serdones 23 points ago in vegan

    Yeah, people can get performance anxiety doing completely mundane things. I know I've been in embarrassing situations where I've suddenly forgotten how to open a door.

    Wife and I just started this past Tuesday. She wants to go on a day trip Saturday, but I'm nervous about finding food. Guess we should probably pack lunch.
