    Way to go, meat-eaters. I hope this is all worth it.

    The title is wrong, it's only resistant to that one last-resort antibiotic, not anything else.
    Maybe stick to the truth instead of spreading fear because of your anti-meat agenda.

    Gonna turn Vegan? Nope. Gonna continue eating meat? Yup. Are vegans better than you? Nope. Do they always have an ulterior motive? Yup. Gonna take a wheatgrass shot later? Nope. I choose to eat meat... I stay gnawing on ribs dafuq is tofurkey. Everybody got choices. Like the blood from steaks that turn the mashed potatoes pink? Yup!

    I hadn't thought about that. A vegan in a Tesla probably produces a sufficient amount of smug (insert South Park clip here) to combat any and all microorganisms.

    Quit posting. Attention whore hippies are the worst. Even your submissions smell unbathed.

    We are always on the brink of destruction. There's a new reason to be terrified all the time. We lurch from crisis to crisis.

    Go Astros/Rockets/Texans!!!!!!

    Something about the constant deep inhalation of one's own farts contributes in repelling the bug.

    Never wash your junk. That will make it lose its character.

    While antibiotic use in agriculture in a big problem, with antibiotic resistent bacteria being created and people eating meat that contains antibiotics in it, this isn't the way to bring up the subject. By saying " way to go meat eaters " you ruined the thread, inviting in a cascade of vegan bashing and desevingly so. You just became vegan, what a year ago? This is your fault to then, you probably supported growth of many antibiotic resistant bacteria just like everybody else.

    This is a problem that has little to do with veganism, and much to do with factory farming, piss poor FDA and meat regulations, the severe overuse of antibiotics and the greedyness of corporations. Eating meat isn't the problem in this case, the problem is packing the meat with antibiotics.
