- What about the carrots!?
- January 19th, 2008
A convo about religious extremism that turns into one about protecting carrots.
[cutting out the very serious religion talk part of this convo]
ME: I never really understood the whole "accepting Jesus into my Heart" thing. My religion came to me very naturally. When I was little, I seriously thought trees had spirits. When I was 8 I scolded a neighbor because he took a hammer to a tree near our house I thought he hurt it and it would die. I mean, I know scientifically that isn't too true, but spiritually....
Friend: Actually, there have been studies that plants can feel pain.
Friend: Yea, Mythbusters even did a show on it. They read the electrical output of a tree as one of the guys was hitting it and it seriously spiked. The tree felt pain!
Me: I was right! I'm a clever little kid!
Friend: The funny thing is the vegetarians who are doing it to save the animals. I mean, it's great that they want things to live and all, but what about the carrots?
Me: The animals have teeth and claws to protect them but what do carrots have? orange
Friend: They never had a chance!
