I just spent a week in Costa Rica, where a tico cook prepared fresh, whole foods, like meat, fish, black beans, rice, endless vegetables and fruit. We had nothing packaged, no junk. I ate 3 big meals a day...and lost weight! I never felt so good.

SCREWTAPE: "This has largely been effected by concentrating all our efforts on gluttony of Delicacy, not gluttony of Excess. Your patient’s mother, as I learn from the dossier and you might have learned from Glubose, is a good example. She would be astonished–one day, I hope, will be–to learn that her whole life is enslaved to this kind of sensuality, which is quite concealed from her by the fact that the quantities involved are small.

But what do quantities matter, provided we can use a human belly and palate to produce querulousness, impatience, uncharitableness, and self-concern? Glubose has this old woman well in hand. She is a positive terror to hostesses and servants.

She is always turning from what has been offered her to say with a demure little sigh and a smile “Oh please, please… all I want is a cup of tea, weak but not too weak, and the teeniest weeniest bit of really crisp toast”. You see? Because what she wants is smaller and less costly than what has been set before her, she never recognises as gluttony her determination to get what she wants, however troublesome it may be to others. At the very moment of indulging her appetite she believes that she is practising temperance."

Its about sex. Its about looking hot, being hot, being sexual, having stamina, having a cut, tight body that people want for sex. Its about avoiding anything that makes you seem ugly and unsexual so you can get laid more.

Almost everything in modern society boils down to making the beast with two - or more - backs. Sex is good, always, no sex is bad, always. Anything that interferes with being beautiful, young, and having sex is always bad and wrong.

Vegans eat vegetables only, right? Why? Why bother to claw your way, inch by bloody inch, up to the very top of the Food Chain to restrict yourself to eating plants? Don't these people realize they've abased themselves to the levels of cows?

Get with the program, you browsers, you. If God hadn't meant us to eat animals, He wouldn't have made them so tasty. Do you really want to stand before Him at the Bar of Judgment (two drink minimum) and have to explain why you turned down Uncle Hector's beautifully grilled T-Bones, or Auntie Letitia's roast turkey -- at Thanksgiving, no less?

Just another in the long list of problems the terminally adolescent face.

Can you cook the package? Might be tastier, and more nutritious.
I can see it: "Now, in the new tastier fresh packaging, ready for your enjoyment."
Tastes like cardboard, not chicken.
