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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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..

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.

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.

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

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.

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
