Not sure what "we're" going to do about it, if anything (lasting). 

Hoping Bill Gates really put sterilization agents into the Covid vaccines, or maybe open a Soylent Green factory or two. :yes:

Soy is such middle class liberal garbage anyway.  I got a feeling both rich people and Joe peasant snort coke and drink canola fried cattle milk like the best of them.

Well, actually, it's more like farmers illegally burning down wood to farm soy beans that's causing the problems, but they'd also do that for animal farming. It just puts a real damper into the going vegan to save the planet spin.

Soya plants are great- easy to grow, quick growing, versatlile, don't need much water, not much in the way of pests, nitrogen fixing- the problems are all with industrial farming since you end up with lots of soy specific pests, lots of topsoil loss as well as lots of forest clearance etc. GMO soy is pretty crap too. Yeah, it won't turn the frogs gay or anything, but all glyphosate resistance does is encourage significantly more use of herbicide- why Monsanto, makers of Roundup, developed it in the first place, duh- and more monoculture. So you end up with massive use of pesticide and massive use of herbicide in most commercial soy growing projects often with steady soil degradation despite soy being a legume.

Cantina's having their usual summer menu, which is great. Today was tuna salad or pizza, so I went with the tuna salad. Can't eat a pepperoni pizza for lunch. I mean, I totally could, but not if I'm expected to be productive afterwards.

I’ve had a serious craving for Japanese food lately. There’s no good Japanese places within 500 miles of here. In fact the last place I got good food was actually in Japan. Sometimes I wish I was sitting on the wood picnic tables outside Mi House at the foot of Mt Futenma on Okinawa eating a big plate of Yaka Soba and sashimi and drinking a big steel can of Orion.

Visiting Japan sure would be nice, stroll around and try all the food I keep seeing in TV shows :). Alas, I doubt that I'll manage.

I got to go there for a year. All expenses paid. Free room and board.

Japan is on my bucket list to visit, and not just because of the food.

It’s definitely my third favorite country in the world.

Drills, uniforms, shaving every day, being subjected to the whims of sadistic morons. Yeah, hard pass. :p

Military life is just not for me. I spent my nine months in the army and hated every last day of it.  Except the week where I got sick because our immediate superiors thought it a fun idea to pretend we're the Wehrmacht in Russia and sent us out in the cold and snow at -20° C in our summer gear. That was fun.

The bigger jar is staying home the smaller jar is going on the road.

good thinking. better than a gun, chemical repellant to be used against would-be hijackers on the road and for those potential home invasion nogoodniks while not travelling.

HA! Good Fun!

...leafy greens, veggies, leafy greens, veggies, leafy greens, veggies.  Yes I can have a bit o' bacon and other non-plant protein/fat sources and I don't feel deprived. Still, sometimes...
