@MIDNIGHT’S INTERNETTY INTERNET THINGS (FROM THE INTERNET)!

Here’s some of the great stuff we found on the internet today that didn’t make it onto tonight’s show. Get your click on.

There’s a new Oculus Rift game that lets you train like a jedi. Never mind that the whole point of the training thing in the movie is you can’t see anything. (via Kotaku)

Guy is so happy Google Fiber is coming to town. His whole body is ready. (via WorldStarHipHop)

Guy passes out at party, wakes up buried in everything. Hopefully he got to keep those socks. (via Reddit)

It’s a good thing Oculus Rift devices weren’t invented and made easily available to the public when I was a kid, or I never would have set foot outside.

I don’t mean to brag but….YUM!

The thirst is real…But seriously though, I never understood the crazed passion people had for Pumpkin Spice Lattes until I tasted one last year. It’s going to be really hard for me to limit myself to one per week.

Cup Song - Rite of Spring
I'm sorry, you said meat is bad. This isn't 100% true. Studies show that when real meat (meaning meat that hasn't been through some unnatural process, with the extreme being McDonalds) is eaten in the correct proportions then it can be beneficial to our health. Now, that essentially means moderation, and picking the right meats. But truthfully, a general good rule in life is everything in moderation. I just think it's unfair and incorrect to say meat is bad period.

You’re right, meat isn’t necessarily bad for your health (though, to be clear, there’s no data supporting the idea that McDonald’s meat is better or worse than other meat…except that it’s easier to eat a lot of it very quickly, and there’s a ton of salt…and you generally also consume it with fried potatoes and sugar water.)

But yes, there’s nothing wrong with meat in moderation…though diets high in animal protein have been found to be linked with cancer, heart disease, and premature death in humans.

But, on the whole, whether I live to be 73 or 78 is not so much of a concern to me as the overall impact I have on the world during those years. No one can deny that meat is horrible for the environment. Giving up meat would probably reduce your carbon footprint by more than giving up driving

40% of grain produced in America is fed to livestock animals. That’s enough to feed 800 million people. 30% of the world’s total ice-free land is used to grow crops to fead to livestock. 30% OF THE WHOLE WORLD! Only 10% is used to grow human food crops.

There are ways to raise animals with less significant or even beneficial environmental impact…but we do not raise animals that way. 

I’m not even touching on the cruelty, here. Let’s just worry about the Earth and not individuals for a moment…if we do that, meat is /clearly bad/ and we should all eat less (if we can), which I try very hard to do.
