    Everyday things we should no longer put up with:

    1. Fluorescent lights – Take ages to come on, always on the blink, bulbs a pain to dispose of/break easily, noisy.

    2. Local news websites – Utter horse****. Take ages to load up, once loaded you have to cancel off many pop-ups before you can even view the page, pages full of adverts, adverts that move about as you try and scroll to view the text, finally find the story you want to read so click on it only to go through the whole process once again. ****e.

    Why not just read twitter or Facebook instead and cut out the middleman?

    In addition to @StuE – people that let their dogs shit on the pavement outside of schools and then don’t pick it up so you have dodge from side to side so you don’t inadvertently step in a shirehorse worthy mountain of cack.

    That and Tories, all of them.

    Is it Ok to just eat it because you like it? And you don’t care about suffering or the environment?

    Q-anon, Anti-vaxxers, flat-earthers and all the conspiracy theory nut-jobs

    Media that gives platforms to these people for ‘balance’ without ever questioning the validity of their argument.

    Youtubers wandering around trail centre carparks with a selfie stick asking people to like and subscribe to their crappy POV videos so they can hopefully, eventually blag some free product.

    Is it OK to eat meat if it is extensively grazed within the UK, which is far better for the environment than almost all crop production anywhere in the world, where anything other than the crop being grown is killed off with chemicals, there is extensive irrigation, plastic is used to cover thousands of hectares of ground, cheap labour is used in the picking and packing, and transport of the crops from half way round the world is normal?

    Just asking

    Yes, similarly I’ll add the constant emails from Amazon and eBay about something I happened to briefly look at, and Amazon recommending things that I’ve already bought

    As a veggie I’d say it is WF, though sadly I’d guess that’s only a small percentage of meat that’s consumed in the UK

    Well, colour me astonished. I thought from many posts over the years that adverts and pop-ups only ever happened on STW.

    I’d say that’s a far more valid argument than what usually gets presented, yes.

    I couldn’t care less what other people eat. Attempting to justify it by bleating on about teeth or depth perception or any other pseudoscientific whataboutery you care to mention, that’s irritating. You want to eat meat, fill your boots, but for the love of your messiah of choice just shut the **** up about it.

    Millitant Vegans.

    PETA shoving leaflets through my door. If they didn’t murder, sorry Euthanise 80% of the animals taken to their shelters I might listen. Then again they once dropped into a twitter convo I was having with a link to an article about what happens to meat in your digestive system. It was describing digestion. They went quiet when I mentioned plants go through the same process.

    Might not sound like it, but I have no issues with vegetarianism or veganism.
