• What are some other common negative misconceptions about veganism?

    In other words - common misinformation that would stray someone from becoming a vegan. I think the most common one is general Western society isn't enlightened on the fact that beans, legumes, nuts and seeds have high amounts of protein in them. So pretty much many people believe you need to eat animals to get protein, which obviously,... show more
    In other words - common misinformation that would stray someone from becoming a vegan. I think the most common one is general Western society isn't enlightened on the fact that beans, legumes, nuts and seeds have high amounts of protein in them. So pretty much many people believe you need to eat animals to get protein, which obviously, isn't true. Another one is related to my first reason - again, some people in Western society assume all vegans are super skinny... vegans tend to have low body-fat ratios, true. But you can still bulk up if you work out, in turn your muscles will just be very defined because they're not surrounded by excess fat. George Laraque is a vegan, and he's debatably the strongest and best fighting NHL player in it's history. Anyway I have a specific reason for asking this, so if you've got any concepts please type 'em up...

    I'm tryna' figure out how much extra and unnecessary food gets sent to and is grown in the USA (altho these figures are prolly consistent among every other developed country with Westernized culture); 1. In total about 40% of the food in the USA get's thrown out - this is not just by people, but also by careless companies 2. "Americans eat 815 billion calories of food each day - that's roughly 200 billion more than needed", that means the average Americans eats 25% more food then dietitians recommend (which I would argue is already way more then needed to be healthy, but that isn't my question) - keep in mind this means average American, yes there are still people in poverty and homeless folks. So, let's say a person needs 100 calories a day (not a factual number, just 100 is easy to work with), this means the average American eats 125 a day, while still throwing out 40% of what he/she buys... so then I thought it would be easiest to find what number 125 is 60% of, which was 208, meaning Americans buy about 2.1 times more food then they need, or - there is about 110% more food in the USA then needed. If you're wondering about why I'm tryna' figure this out, it's because developed countries consume much more resources then are needed and in turn more and more farms are being developed, but at the cost of forests, meaning... destruction of animal habitats. These stats essentially demonstrate how wasteful people are and why it's a problem.

The Raptors are the second highest-scoring team in the NBA right now (behind Dallas), DeMar is known for being an offensive player, on the defensive end he is pretty much average... so defensively, the Raptors might not be hurt, but offensively, how much of an impact is this going to have on the team? They have a deep bench, and I'm pretty sure they'll still be winning more then losing, but what do y'all think?

I mean I have an idea of what "marginalization" is but I just want to be sure, so can someone just quickly explain this to me? PS: I know what nomads and sedentary people are, I just included the whole sentence because getting the entire context is better then just a short segment of the quote.

    I'm wondering because I'm looking at this crime map of Detroit right now: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/99999... and the crime seems to literally be everywhere, like the density of the dots. I don't actually know the borders of Detroit so I got a map: http://cmsimg.freep.com/apps/pbcsi.dll/b... and the dots mimic the border. The only place there seems to be no crime is that little pocket in the east-center - "Highland Park", "Hamtramck", etc... but on the map it's just a white-space, not sure what that is about. 65% to 70% of the violent crime in my city (actual figures not just guesses) happens in the inner-city area, which only makes up 19% of the population. I mean the crime is very concentrated in my city, where as in Detroit it looks very wide-spread. The city-wide rates in Detroit as well are very high, so I wasn't sure if there were going to be some concentrated areas with super high rates or it was just very wide spread (ie: 80% of the population lives in the high crime areas as opposed to 19%). Keep in mind, I'm talking SOLELY about the city of Detroit with 700,000 people, not the metro with 4.3 million people. From what I see, it's very wide-spread. But I want some confirmation or clarification.

I'm just trying to understand exactly what they are, I've looked it up and finding different results... some say it's an eye shape, some say it's just eyes that are "more deep into your skull" (creating a more prominent looking brow ridge), which would be the obvious definition. But like I said I've ran into other definitions... the 3 pics I posted clearly all have different eye shapes, but prominent brow ridges. So my question really is... are deep-set eyes a distinct eye shape (for example, almond or acorn shaped) or does it really just mean a prominent brow ridge?

So my question is which of these HOUSEHOLD incomes would be considered; - Lower class - Lower-middle class - Middle class (if there are 5 categories, if there are 4 don't include this one) - Upper-middle class - Upper class Keep in mind these are standards for industrialized nations, not worldwide standards. Anyway, there is a reason I am asking this, but I don't think it's relevant to the question. Thanks.
