    I’ve seen those same reports on “plants feeling pain.” Going by the facts alone, plants do not possess pain receptors as animals do. The most such structures do is guide the plant’s growth away from harmful phenomena and/or trigger natural defenses. That, essentially, is what pain is. There is no empirical evidence to support anything more complex than that.

    How about we just put the supremacists on both sides of the equation in a locked room with instructions to kill each other until only one’s left, then kill the survivor?

    Lio, I think Santa would know the milk was drugged from the taste. Seriously, chloral hydrate (knockout drops) is vile in how sickly medicine-sweet it tastes.

    Horse sense is something we humans could stand to learn from our equine friends.

    And this is different from how GoComics posters argue the meaning of any strip—not just Non Sequitur—how? Besides being told flat out to do it?

    Danae must be an early bloomer. She’s acting like a teenager already.

    I feel your pain, Garfield. It’s nearly winter! I need that fat to stay warm!

    Ignore him. I do.

    If what I have to listen to at work is any indication, sports can be just as toxic as anything else.

    Hippocratic Oath? Try Hypocritical Oath.

    I’ve seen the same studies but the idea that carbs have not been a part of the human diet in terms of evolution can’t really be proven or disproven yet. Humanity’s ancestors were hunter-gatherers and in fact there is sufficient evidence to support that grains were actually a big part of our ancient diets. However, our species was also burning a lot more calories daily than we have been in over a century. Carbs are a source of immediate energy that most of us don’t need in modern Western society. There’s also been studies that show excess protein can be actually be as serious a problem as excess carbs.

    It’s not a vegan diet that’s the problem, it’s not enough variety in what’s actually being eaten. There are plenty of fruits, vegetables, and grains that can substitute nutrients from meat and dairy to avoid health issues. Those who follow a vegan diet have to take even greater care to eat the right things so they have a balanced diet. Otherwise, yes, they’ll have issues like those students.
