I like the "veggie" thread...so I thought I'd take it to the next level...How 'bout speaking up for the "Vegans" ?



I'll start- 25 years!

GhostUser 02-05-2005 11:32 AM

Diet wise, a little over 5 years.



I phased out household cleaning products over that period but not as quickly as I did with food.

kirkjobsluder 02-05-2005 11:35 AM

Ohh, I really don't know. There was a specific thing that turned me vegetarian. There wasn't an equivalent thing that made me vegan.

Foxy 02-05-2005 11:40 AM

Okay...so that's 30 so far (Kirkjobsluder, feel free to add in a number whenever you feel like it)



30 and counting...next?

eggplant 02-05-2005 11:51 AM

Three years in April.

revelsunrise 02-05-2005 12:04 PM

1 month.

Foxy 02-05-2005 12:10 PM

I can see that vegans are either afraid of math or something, 'cause the numbers thing isn't catching on...



Okay, so we have got around 33 years, right?



NEXT! Please add your time to the total

spehlbaund 02-05-2005 12:12 PM

less than 5 months so I'll say 4.. so about



33 years, 5 months so far

xrodolfox 02-05-2005 12:34 PM

I have been Vegan for about 11 years (perhaps more?)

My wife has been for 10 years. My son for one more (since birth).



If I just add myself, it ups the total to 35rys 5 months.



With my wife and son as well, it is up to 46yrs 7 months.

Foxy 02-05-2005 12:43 PM

Yay for Vegan Families!

'Cmon, vegans! ADD! People will start to think that vegans suck at math!



49 years, 5 months and counting...

spehlbaund 02-05-2005 01:50 PM

I'm confused.. I thought it would be 58 years 5 months if rodolfo has been vegan for 11 yrs and wife 10 and son 1 year.. (11+10+1= 22, 22 + 33 yrs 5 months= 55 years 5 mo. plus Nagemurut's 3 years= 58 or maybe I missed something..

Elena99 02-05-2005 01:54 PM

For completely transitioned, that would be roughly 1 year.

GhostUser 02-05-2005 02:58 PM

7 months.



so...someone can add that up.

bethanie 02-05-2005 03:05 PM

four years.



55 years I think?

ebola 02-05-2005 03:35 PM

sheesh. I've been a strict vegetarian / quasi-vegan for not too long, roughly 3 years.

I was a lacto-ovo for like 1 year before that.

The year DIET FOR A NEW AMERICA came out. A coworker telling me about is what made me decide to give it a try

epski 02-05-2005 04:21 PM

Roughly 1986, Steve?



I went vegan April 20, 2002.

GhostUser 02-05-2005 05:07 PM

Guess!

SallyK 02-05-2005 06:02 PM

3 years as of yesterday, and if you want to include my son, that's 6 years between the two of us. And math hurts my brain today.

mayuko 02-05-2005 06:21 PM

i can't really remember. i want to say two years but i don't know if that's accurate. and i can't do a total since no one else has been adding them

I'm one course away from meeting the departmental requirement for my math undergrad, but I don't consider myself vegan anymore.

Ah. Damn. I was close!

CharityAJO 02-05-2005 07:51 PM

two years, seven months, five days.

Descentia 02-05-2005 08:01 PM

Just over a year when I fully transitioned.



Yay for all the long term vegans and vegan families!

Qwerks 02-05-2005 11:02 PM

I'd feel OK adding my 1.5 years to a grand total at this point, but I have to add up great long strings of numbers all day at work so I refuse to do it again now.



So our total is X + 1.5 years.

Foxy 02-05-2005 11:14 PM

Okay. It has been established- vegans *do* suck at math (myself included )



Remilard, since you are not considering yourself vegan but are a math whiz, care to help out the cause

Morticia 02-05-2005 11:28 PM

Calculus was a long time ago...so I'll just say fiveish months. I still have non-vegan stuff around, but I'm not buying any new leather shoes, coats, etc.

25 + 5 + 3 + 1/12 + 1/3 + 11 + 10 + 1 + 3 + 1 + 7/12 + 4 + 3 + 11/4 + 2/3 + 3 + 3 + 2 + 5 + 31/12 + 3/2 + 5/12 = 1055/12 or 87 years 11 months, not counting beforewisdom.

beforewisdom 02-06-2005 07:23 AM

I know for sure that I was a vegan by 1995 so just put me down for that date

Foxy 02-06-2005 07:49 AM

97 years, 11 months

punkmommy 02-06-2005 08:34 AM

my husband has been vegan 8 yrs, 1 mo. - 111 yrs, 7 mo.

Foxy 02-06-2005 08:46 AM

We have now officially reached the projected average lifespan of a healthy vegan

missleigh 02-06-2005 10:23 AM

Lelena 02-06-2005 06:13 PM

I've been vegan 8 years and 5 months so we now have 129.1

spud 02-07-2005 06:06 PM

DeathOfDecadenc 02-07-2005 07:09 PM
