I do not have any idea what it takes to get into one of these expensive schools and I do not have any idea what what kind of high-paying speech therapy opportunities there might be to pay off ridiculous student loans, but when I applied to Arizona State two decades ago, they required:
1. 1150 SAT score
2. 3.0 -or-
3. Top third in your graduating class

Please note the or. I was 1350, 3.1 and not top third, but I attended a high school where it seemed like most students were motivated to earn good grades. Unlike ASU. The SAT score goes up to 1600, so if an Asian American needed a perfect 1600 to get in, a Latino American would only need an 1150, the same as Arizona State.

I could not imagine keeping up at one of those schools. How would they?

Your vegans were so preoccupied with whether or not they could they didn't stop to think if they should.

The Impossible Burger is made from several ingredients, although the main ones consist of wheat, coconut oil, potato protein, and heme. If you’re not familiar with the latter, it’s an iron-containing compound found in hemoglobin, the red pigment in our blood, which can also be derived from nitrogen-fixing plants. According to the outfit, heme is the molecule that gives the meat that undeniable meat flavor, allowing their plant-derived burgers to mimic the previously inimitable taste. Heme, by the way, also turns red when exposed to oxygen, allowing these burgers to looks as bloody as erstwhile regular meat.

I've had one of these, or one similar. It was tasty, but did not taste remotely like hamburger.

So, they tried to emulate the taste of blood, not the taste of actual meat. Well, even though there are some sausages made out of blood instead of meat, it's not exactly the same taste.

I had the most delicious prime rib this weekend. Hard to imagine something non-cow tasting as good as it did, but I'm open to the idea. The replacement would have to compete on a nutrition and price basis too.

If I came into money I would hold activities for singles 30 - 45 where I would barbecue hamburgers or something, but all of the sides would be vegetarian. I am sure that I could find dishes that omnivores would enjoy.

Cheese, though. If anyone tells me that dairy is evil I will tell them to shut their commie mouth.

Cheese isn't dairy, it's bacteria poop.

In the 1970s when I ate chicken off the bone I'd have flashbacks to the 'Nam.

Let's get this thread back on topic. The correct answer is definitely gingers, as all South Park fans know.

Mr. beard, when you figure out how to have non-dairy bacteria eating non-dairy food, but pooping identical cheese, you tell us how you enjoy it.
