Guests At A Vegan Cafe Are Assaulted With Chunks Of Meat

The vegan lifestyle is already a difficult one to live as it is. The thought of never eating anything that comes from an animal is quite literally making me sick to my stomach at this very moment. I love beef jerky too much to give it up, sorry I’m not sorry that I’m sorry. Still, that’s one man’s opinion, and that’s where the buck stops. Some people are taking this “kill the vegan” mentality way too far, and it’s beginning to get out of hand.

Georgia, a Middle Eastern country located in the nook between Asia and Europe, is famous for its particular wines and cobblestone streets, but the capital city of Tbilisi seems to be a cultural battleground lately. The Greek Orthodox church continues to ward off forthcoming western values while people more dedicated to love and acceptance (also known, unfortunately, to many people as “western values”) fight the archaic traditions of their culture.

The Kiwi Cafe, a bohemian cafe in Tbilisi, was assaulted over the weekend by a group of more than a dozen men wielding a wide variety of meats, from sausage links dangling from around necks to grilled meat on skewers to handfuls of fried fish, according to the New York Times. After emptying their hands of their ammunition, the men bravely ran away before any authorities could catch and/or identify them.

I’m all for a a few jokes and jabs here and there when it comes to veganism, but acting out like this is sickening. We don’t know why these people choose to be vegan, and it’s none of our god damn business either. That’s a universal right to privacy we were all given. Vegans need not answer to ANYONE for their decisions, period.

Live your life, vegans. You do you.

Man Discovers Exactly Why You Should Never Try To Make Sushi At Home

One Canadian man learned the hard way that making sushi is best left to the master chefs at restaurants after his severe abdominal pains revealed a horrifying scene taking place in his stomach.

A recently published medical case titled “An unusual case of abdominal pain” tells of an unidentified 50-year-old man from Alberta who was admitted to the hospital in August 2014 with severe abdominal pain and vomiting.

The man had attempted to make sushi for himself by buying raw salmon from his nearby grocery store only hours before.

An x-ray at the hospital revealed an anomaly in his stomach, so doctors guided a camera down his esophagus to look inside his stomach.

Doctors discovered that the man’s pain was due to rare parasitic anisakis worms trying to borrow through his stomach lining — had they succeeded, the man would have suffered from long-term complications. The worms had to be surgically removed.

While some stores legitimately sell “sashimi grade” salmon, most selections at typical grocery stores are not fresh enough to eat raw.

It is recommended that you have sushi prepared by a professional chef at a restaurant or, if possible, to “freeze the fish for seven days at −20 C (-4 F) or at a lower temperature for a shorter period of time (less than −20 C for four days).”

If you aren’t sure how fresh that fish at the store is, it’s probably best you leave it to the professionals — after all, unlike a sushi chef, you probably didn’t spend 10 years to master the art of sushi.

The Simpler, Better Way to Cut a Cake You’ve Probably Never Heard About [VIDEO]

wtf-cake

Considering how many things we do “wrong” nowadays (like using ketchup cups, peeling oranges, eating chicken wings like a lady), you can’t help but wonder why we listen to our forefathers at all. Take cake-cutting for example. For as long as we’ve known, people have employed the exact same method for cutting into round cakes: carving off triangular slices and leaving the leftovers to sit in the fridge.

Well, apparently this method sucks.

Earlier today, British mathematician Alex Bellos decided to instruct the world on the most mathematically efficient technique for cake cutting. The problem, Bellos explains in his “Scientific Way to Cut a Cake” video, is that once your individual slice is removed, the remaining exposed insides will slowly dry out. Because of this, “you’re not maximizing the amount of gastronomic pleasure that you can make from this cake.”

Instead, the answer is to cut the round cake like you would a rectangular sheet cake. That is, in cake-long rectangular strips. Then, once your strip is removed, the rest of the cake can be squished and held together with a rubber band to minimize aeration and maximize moist delicious goodness.

It should be noted that the sides of Bellos’s video cake seem to be lined with firm, sugary fondant, which is able to withstand the pressure of the rubber band. We’re not sure so sure how well something like buttercream would hold up.

Though, alternatively, we could just eat the whole cake in one go.
