You should really relax.


From the link I posted:


"And among one of the food products that they succeeded in banning was called coconut oil. They succeeded in having coconut oil banned from the use of popping popcorn, particularly in movie theaters and other places, concession stand areas where popcorn was sold. They said it was high in polyunsaturated fat, stuff would clog you up so bad that coconut oil is what they would scrape out of you during a bypass operation."

I think movie theater popcorn smells gross. I go to the movies almost every week and that's one of my negatives.

I never buy anything at the movies, I bring my own water and snack in my purse. Sometimes I need a snack because my blood sugar can feel low. But the prices are ridiculous and the smells can make you nauseous.

Do you think it's the evil liberal Commie tree-hugging vegans who spoke out against coconut oil because they want you to eat a diet of quinoa and flaxseed or maybe, just maybe, it was the CORPORATE VEGETABLE OIL LOBBY that had a hand in this?

By the way, the anti-coconut oil studies were carried out in the 1950s. You know, your golden era.

I think you also need to relax.

Movie popcorn use to taste really good before the ban.

what rare and special knowledge you possess.

if you wouldn't end your posts with so many smug, triumphantalist i think you'd get a lot of people who'd be less hostile to your claims on a better, tastier past that no one else seems to have been lucky enough to have gown up in.

in any event, the Rush article wasn't saying what you wish it said, and neither was the NYT article.

there's not much to agree upon.

you never really had a point to begin with.

If people disagree with you it doesn't necessarily mean they're getting worked up. It could just mean that they find your "proof" doesn't match your premise.

Besides, repeating the same thing over and over again, regardless of input, and then unnecessarily telling people to calm down is counterproductive to meaningful discussion.

I know this poster doesn't need a cogent argument, just a warm glass of organic goat's milk, a grilled cheese sandwich made with unpasteurized, free-market cheese, a smug wavey smiley, and the disappointing gradesheets for my underachieving black students.

Dairy products create mucus and mess up your throat.

I once had a teacher that for every failed test that she graded, she would staple a Burger King application along with it and hand it over to the student that failed the test.

All black students are a failure at school though... and yet we still find a large portion working at Burger King nonetheless.

How would you feel if I told you that we should bring back slavery because I'm tired of lazy blacks?
