Maybe it was to get rid of the carageenen (spelling?) which is a good thing I think.

Does anybody else always scratch their head whenever it comes time to order replacement pads? I kind of sometimes just order whatever is cheapest, sometimes order just Avid, have tried organic, sintered, etc 

Going to try EBC Green/Gold this time. (Both at different times) They come up popular in searches.

I haul about 200+ pounds with a trailer and deal with moderate hills and have bb7s with 160 rotors.

EBC here . They last for ages . Depends on the compound you get  too. I use sintered as it repels dirt better .

Apparently, commenting on one +Feministing post means I'll get sporadic rape victim trolling forever. Should I engage them or mute the post? Pao's recent op-ed kind of leans me towards the latter. I can't really report the users for just being ignorant either.

Sites like Reddit can’t rely on better rules to eliminate harassment.

So a client at work who knows I'm vegan brought in a newspaper clipping that mentions that a woman in my city won an annoying org's "Sexeist vegan" contest. (originally typed sexist vegan contest, which would be much more interesting and useful)

Rather than being like "Oh wow, there's an attractive vegan in my city!" I got to talk about how discrimination against women is similar to discrimination against species and how I don't like these contests because they objectify women.

Didn't even get to bring up the fact that PETA promotes harmful western beauty standards, and this white wispy contestant fit in within that standard. Also didn't get a chance to critique the fact that the prize is a vacation to Hawaii,  and global warming, which is exacerbated by air travel, seems counter to the spirit of veganism. (In my opinion.)

Posted this to my circles, but thought somebody here might be able to relate. Think I might start a tag of #thatvegan for when I'm critiquing what other vegans are doing

Man, why do I always have to be that vegan? Does anybody else see the irony of having a fund raiser for a fucking animal sanctuary at a place that SERVES DEAD ANIMALS! It's like having an underground railroad fundraiser at a slave auction.
Join us for a FUNdraiser to benefit Hope Haven Farm Sanctuary! We will have vegan food and drink specials where a portion of the proceeds will go to Hope Haven Farm Sanctuary. You will also have a chance to win a "Relaxation" gift basket, which includes a free 60 minute massage from Newman Chiropractic!

Well said. +Pierce Johnson. We're not saving lives by keeping our mouths shut and our eyes averted.

Gah! I hate when I make the mistake of putting soft tofu in a meal that already has a soft texture, resulting in too much of a mush texture.

Like tonight, I tried to make a curry and added tofu, but I didn't bother pressing it or really doing anything to it and just threw it in with the curry, which resulted in a pretty gross texture

Thought of another question when going through my laundry...

Does anybody have any good cycling underwear recommendations? Mine are literally turning into tatters, so I could use some recommendations for something comfortable and that can dry well in between rides on my commute (I change when I get to work)

I live in a pretty warm environment. Cotton rules. I have yet to wear a "technical fabric" that doesn't feel like a sauna, except when your moving. Though I haven't tried merino wool yet.

On the bike spandex/Lycra rule, off the bike I am all about natural fibers.

I've been in and out of the vegan community for the better part of a decade and the conversation is basically the same. Somebody upset with dog meat. Some other petition. Somebody arguing about abolition versus welfarism. Some other petition.

Hard to get a sense of any momentum or accomplishment when literally the same conversations are happening that have been happening for decades. There was a thing about fur. That's been protested for at least 30 years I think. Ugh.

Stolen from a popular dating website, imaging I live in a city with more than the same nine vegans: 

"The most private thing I’m willing to admit:

I am constantly being asked where I get my protein from, so I might as well get that question out of the way. I steal it from omnivores, while they are sleeping." 

Hadn't heard that one before :)

Saw this movie tonight, pretty good, made my eyes water. Has a little bit of fan service for fans of her previous film, The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill. It's not an especially vegan film, but as with her previous work, presents nonhuman animals as unique individuals and illuminates the common shared experience of sentient life. (with the exception of fish here)

Remember that time you ordered non-vegan pizza for a bunch of people?

Ellen DeGeneres has already been taken to task for her consumption of eggs, but I thought I'd add additional criticism here and reinforce the idea that using celebrities to promote veganism is almost always a recipe for hypocrisy. Note the person passing out pizza, Brad Pitt, another alleged dietary vegan. (Not sure if he has any animal right leanings.) 
Big Mama’s and Papa’s Pizza has never had a day like this. Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres put the bright red and yellow pizza boxes in front of millions of viewers Sunday night, and the 20-location chain found instant fame.

Celebrity culture is so transitory, why organizations or causes attach their name to people who by nature of their careers must constantly change and adapt is beyond me.

I long for the day when we're not constantly bombarded by the most flawed of logical arguments. In my day job I answer rote technical questions. In veganism, I answer rote omnivore arguments.
