Why do vegetarians die sooner than carnivores?

Thomas Hobbes on the lives of vegetarians: “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short”

For the same reason husbands predecease their wives: because they want to. And also, it turns out, because their diet is deadly.

    What, exactly, is that round thing on the top made of? Bat guano with cheez?

  5. Hitler was a vegetarian (and a monorchid, too).
    Churchill said: “Carnivores will win this war.” (1940)

  6. Daniel Henninger of the Wall St. Journal is even more brilliant than usual today (sorry about the paywall):

    His point: Obama has not only succeeded in transforming America’s healthcare, energy sector and God knows what else, he has utterly destroyed Reaganism and the Republican party. The latter is now committing suicide by fighting itself over Trump.

    It’s true: can you imagine a more profound victory than causing your adversary to commit suicide?

    The Trumpniks are responsible for enabling Obama’s triumph in this way.

    (still praying for the adults to re-assert themselves in Wisconsin Tuesday….)

    Silly question. Carnivores eat vegetarians.
