I was thinking the same thing. When my kids were three, no way would I let them anywhere near a syrup dispenser. (My mom also tells the story about how as a toddler I insisted on DOING IT MYSELF!! at a pancake restaurant and ended up pouring all over my brand new sandals.) So, if this three-year-old can pour syrup —

Yup. Fantastic. Hell is other people (and microtransactions).

At least you would not have to model mountains... think of the performance increase!

Kinda surprised you didn’t even mention Recettear. I mean, sure it’s not the same, but when I saw “run a shop and kill monsters” that’s what immediately popped into my head.

So what’s the difference between this game and Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale?

I want to bang my head against a wall anytime anybody blames Monsanto for shit. They’re not like... super altruistic do-gooders but they’re far from the worst and are probably one of the better agribusinesses in the US.

Government didn’t “create the problem”. The medallion system was a way to deal with actual problems caused by unlimited numbers of for hire cars driving around a small area with little to no quality control for the car or its driver.

Especially since what Monsanto does is basically the same thing the farmers do, only controlled lab conditions. The whole idea of ‘splicing genes’ and whatall? Yeah, not so much. They just throw together crossbreeds and see what grows well.

Again, smugness is not a good quality.

It’s possible that the word “vegan” is so unappealing because of its close association with an army of insufferable proponents?

Thank you! I love corn on the cob but if it was labeled vegan corn on the cob I’d walk the fuck away. Self righteousness is not a good quality.

Unfortunately its going to get billed as Corporate Meat Shills (TM) destroying honest wholesome small business heros.

Like when Hellman’s sued Just Foods over Just Mayo.

Its not Mayo. And it doesn’t meet the legal definition already established for “Mayonnaise”. Its called “Just Mayo”. Its packaged like stereotypical

This is often how I view food that is labelled “Vegan” as well. I’ll add a third point:

There’s some kind of bill going through the MO statehouse that is going to specifically define what “meat” is so that vegans can’t co-opt the word. I hope it passes and gets signed.

Part of the manufacturers’/producers’ problem is that they’re trying to hop on all the various and sundry trend bandwagons by splattering “vegan” or “non-GMO” or GF or whatever all over the front label, when a whole bunch of minimally, or not-at-all, processed foods are that way anyway. Instead, they just need to use

When you look at how fanatical and preachy so many vegans actually are, is anyone actually surprised? The word is just too associated with too many unpleasant emotional interactions to be appealing. There has just been too much evangelizing on veganism to the point that it makes people tired just to even think about
