My trips to Whole Foods do not involve all the customers being like those described in the article linked below, but there are certainly a significant percentage of them. The more pieces of metal hanging off various parts of their face, the more likely they are going to be an angry Whole Foods shopper. From the article:
The problem with Whole Foods is their regular customers. They are, across the board, across the country, useless, ignorant, and miserable. They’re worse than miserable, they’re angry. They are quite literally the opposite of every Whole Foods employee I’ve ever encountered. Walk through any store any time of day—but especially 530pm on a weekday or Saturday afternoon during football season—and invariably you will encounter a sneering, disdainful horde of hipster Zombies and entitled 1%ers.
They stand in the middle of the aisles, blocking passage of any other cart, staring intently at the selection asking themselves that critical question: which one of these olive oils makes me seem coolest and most socially conscious, while also making the raw vegetable salad I’m preparing for the monthly condo board meeting seem most rustic and artisanal?

Fucking crazy talk:
If parents don’t go, 6th graders won’t move onto 7th grade.

A huge ice fishing contest on Gull Lake in Minnesota:
Looks like a lot of fun, eh?
Oh my God you could not get met out there! I went ice fishing once as a kid, what a miserable experience.

I think Dog and Cat people exhibit the same differences in their approach to all relationships.
Update: I just remembered that my old coworker, the WWE, said that people that like dogs have the qualities of cats themselves, and that cat lovers have the qualities of dogs. Remember this: I am a dog person, you don’t want me teaching you how to descend the stairs!
I don’t understand the pass the Woody Allen and Roman Polanski get in the media.
I am quite certain that if I were guilty of those crimes, all my friends would no longer have a thing to do with me and I would be locked up for life in a prison cell. But then, I haven’t made Annie Hall.
I laughed out loud when I first read this:
The “Food Pyramid” approach that has produced worldwide obesity is actually meant to fatten people up to prepare for post-apocalyptic food shortages. The “Financial Crisis” is actually a manipulation to cover up large sums of money going to the alien defense effort.
