I love @buzzfeed. I can spend hours taking their quizzes, binge-watching their videos, and scrolling through their lists. However, when Buzzfeed shared a video about healthy grocery shopping with this tip, I felt hurt and betrayed.
America suffers from chemophobia and this proves just how badly we suffer. We think chemicals are bad - they are toxic, dangerous, and can kill you! It’s what we see in the films, on the news, and in our world. But we have forgotten that we live in a world based off of chemistry. Even our most basic water is a chemical. Does that make it bad?
I can’t blame consumers for being scared of the unknown. We in the food and agriculture industry have failed to educate our consumers about what they are eating. We have made amazing strides in food production, so quickly that we forgot to tell the consumer what has been going on!
Buzzfeed, I don’t blame you for your mistake. It’s our fault for not reaching out to the consumers. If you’re involved in agriculture, I challenge you to be transparent and reach out to your consumers. And if you’re a consumer, I invite you to contact us in the industry! A happy, well-fed world is one that’s willing to work together.
Archaeological evidence of 1700-year-old chemical warfare
Almost 2,000 years ago, 19 Roman soldiers ran into a cramped underground tunnel, prepared to defend the Roman-held Syrian city of Dura-Europos from an army of Persians digging to undermine the city’s mudbrick walls. But instead of Persian soldiers, the Romans met with a wall of noxious black smoke that turned to acid in their lungs. The discovery of their bodies provided the first physical evidence of ancient chemical warfare.
May I request a hairless rubber chastity puppy transformation from T.G.F.T? I'd like a change from the hairy 18 masturbation addicted high school student that I am. Thank you!
Hello, sir! How may we help you today? Oh, a form? Thanks! I’ll take that off your hands and see what your request is. Masturbation addiction? Is that a thing? I though you were fine if you keep under once per hour, but that’s just what my employee contract says.
If you want more control over your urges though, we’ll get you there. Come with me!
Now I realize that in the common world’s book of solutions they would probably have you go through some terrible process to rid you of you “addiction.” What do they use for that? Isn’t it radiation? For cancer? Why the hell would you want to cure cancer with radiation? I’ll tell the Supers division that. They’ll get a big kick out of it.
Anyway, here we are: the shower room. Go ahead. Step in. Don’t be shy. No one else is in here just now. It looks like you’re the only one that ordered a hairless today, so I guess you’d have no qualms about showering would you? Oh, come on. We’ve all been in gym class. I have seen a fair share of other guys’ dicks.
There! You’re naked. That wasn’t so bad, was it? Now, go ahead and take a good rinse. It may be cold out, but you’ll find the water quite warm and relaxing in here… Well, it’s mostly water. Don’t look so scared! It’s nothing as dangerous as radiation. I can promise you that! Besides you’re mostly drenched already.
The chemicals being absorbed through your skin will actually be quite helpful to your unique dilemma. Our scientist have found that the best way to circumvent an addiction is to replace it with another harmless one. When pairing that genius with some hydrotherapy we were toying with, we came to the solution of hydro-addiction!
Oh, there goes your body hair. No, you have to keep rinsing! Otherwise this will never work. Any other side effects? Well, you should probably be experiencing a kind of cotton-headedness right now. Are you feeling it? Do you feel you mind becoming smaller, obedient, or maybe even primal? All of the above? Good! That means we can turn off the shower.
There’s no need to go anywhere. I’ll dry you off. That’s right. Just let me take care of you. It’s really great to do that, isn’t it? To just let other people take care of you? To be subservient to others who know better than you? Why don’t I get you dressed then too?
There we are. You’re locked up and dressed in rubber like a good boy should be, aren’t you? Your little locked up puppy cock can’t be touched anymore, so none of the previous addiction for you. The rubber also keeps you from enjoying your new addiction too much as well.
In the meantime, you will be staying in this Youth program dorm, as we do allow pets, and you will finish your schooling in that way. You will serve as this
room’s tenant’s pet, and please him in every way you can. In return, he’ll care for you, his subservient little pup.
