This actually isn’t so bad after all. Alpro Soya yogurts are delicious, I can still eat plain chocolate, and some days I make up for lost calories in my diet with lots of alcohol. I’m also doing more cooking, which is more fun than I thought it would be, and I feel pretty good generally. [...]
I’m not eating any animal products for one month as part of an agreement/wager with a friend, who has agreed to try vegetarianism for one month. We haven’t decided on a forfeit yet, so feel free to suggest one. It should probably be food-related, like eating a block of butter or something along similar lines. [...]
The people who do medicine are awesome, and if you disagree then fuck you! (Disclaimer: utterly inebriated post, but the sentiment still stands. One of my best friends does med, and he’s one of the nicest, most considerate guys I know. And everyone in my class is really nice too. I genuinely feel bad for [...]

Since yesterday, practicing this has been the overriding goal of my life. Come on cynics, what say you of my latest plan?
I have an essay to write on this matter, so I’m interested to hear other views. Do you think it should be legal to sell body parts such as kidneys to people who are willing to pay for them? On the one hand, people do it anyway on the black market, so legalisation would clean [...]
I pledged not to post videos here for a while, so instead here’s a link to Damien’s blog, where you’ll find an Indian educational video about condoms.
The Economist’s European Blog has an interesting post on oral hygiene in France, or rather the lack thereof. The most striking statistic (taken from an article in Le Figaro) is perhaps that “one million French citizens never brush their teeth”. I would have expected better from the French, despite the crude caricatures of the nation [...]
