NASA goes Vegan for Mars

Postby beforewisdom » Tue Dec 07, 2010 5:36 am

Cornell volunteers spend month on diet for a smaller planet (Mars) and find low-salt, high-fiber tacos and candy out of this world

Why wasn't I in this study?
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

Word.

These people had nicer meals than what I make for myself on weeknights.

Cool, now I can say I'm on a 'space diet'!

"She also noted that participants tended to lose between 3 and 7 pounds on the diet, probably because of its low sodium content."

Of course, no mention of how a vegan diet is usually very helpful for losing weight!
Lovin' it!

<=== I'm getting ready for my next space mission.

That's what I'm telling relatives when they ask about my diet.

Interesting. Beats the "space food" dehydrated ice cream sandwich I was once given as a souvenir from a friend's trip to visit NASA.

I met a bloke a few months ago whose job is to road-test prototype space suits for Mars by mincing around glaciers with journalists in tow. Fun job.

He'd previously worked on developing protocols for doing CPR in zero gravity in case an astronaut choked on the ice cream sandwich or something.

He mumbled something about people working with dummies and sedated pigs in parabolic flights.

Perhaps that blows the vegan mars fantasy.

Spice missions are more exciting.

If I tell my relatives I'm going on a Spice Mission they'll think this:

Frankly, I rather do a space mission.
