    Snapchat already shows you the current location of people. Imagine what it will be like 10 years from now.

    lol. Why imagine? The technology is here now and has been for some years.

    In 2014, Facebook filed a patent application for a technique that employs smartphone data to figure out if two people might know each other. The author, an engineering manager at Facebook named Ben Chen, wrote that it was not merely possible to detect that two smartphones were in the same place at the same time, but that by comparing the accelerometer and gyroscope readings of each phone, the data could identify when people were facing each other or walking together. That way, Facebook could suggest you friend the person you were talking to at a bar last night, and not all the other people there that you chose not to talk to.

    Considering this has been around for a while, imagine what other data is being tracked at this point. Tinder collects a huge amount of data too.

    Linkedin also reads your browser to see what extensions you're using too. Things like logrocket and dynatrace when in use completely record your entire sessions of whatever site you're using with them, including mouse movement, and any other data it can get, let alone the data you've permitted the sites to use themselves.

    Throw in various forms of fingerprinting which can help track you even when you're logged out through inferential identity resolution, GUIDs and database aggregation/data brokerage, and there's really no escape from constantly producing data within surveillance-networks whether online or offline lmao

    Do you all live on a commune or something?
    Not that there's anything wrong with it but it seems quite unusual that you all happen to be vegetarians unless you're belong to some sort of vegetable sect.

    Theres this new place in Morningside called Kind Cafe ...our family are vege's and we stumbled across this by accident.

    You could start by having a few drinks as Flight 605 in Morningside, its not super flash but pretty cozy and the owners were pretty cool (and you get free popcorn) Then its a couple minute walk to Kind Cafe (16 McDonald St) then for desert there's a gelato/ice cream place a few places down.

    Its not fine dining, but its real relaxed and we were super impressed by the flavors in the food, we just got a bunch of different plates and all shared them. Highly recommended.

    I'm sure you'll get rewarded for your efforts.
    Kind Cafe looks fantastic! Thank you for the suggestion, I think I might take this one up!

    Raising kids as vegetarians is like home-schooling them.

    It's more about socialising the kids. There's nothing so wrong with NZ public education anyway.


    Unlike homeschooling, raising a kid as vegetarian isn't necessarily bad for them it's just an example of parents imposing their whack beliefs on people under their complete control. It's like forcing them to be mormons or something.

    Can you explain what is whack about vegetarianism?

    We're designed to be omnivores. Check out how sharp your front teeth are.

    As I said, it's not bad for you if you're careful to eat the right balance, I'm just not on board with the hippy reasons for doing it. Kids should be fed a normal diet, not whatever fad their parents are into.

    I'd be into vegetarianism for environmental reasons, just waiting for some comparable vegetarian based meat replacements.

    What do you think about that meat they've been growing in labs from stem cells?

    Also afaik you can eat beans and tofu and shit as a protein replacement. Delicious...

    lol have you seen how sharp herbivorous primates teeth are? That's a weak ass argument. Also we're not 'designed' for anything.

    The latter part just sounds like your opinion, which is fine I guess, but it's not really based in reality.

    This is what various expert bodies have to say on the topic, these are for vegans & vegetarians but being vegetarian (i.e. eating eggs, cheese etc) would make sourcing particular nutrients much simpler for children & adults alike. I don't see how any of this is 'hippy shit' nor not a normal diet as you call it.

    Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

    It is the position of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that appropriately planned vegetarian, including vegan, diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits for the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. These diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, adolescence, older adulthood, and for athletes.
    Dietitians of Canada

    A healthy vegan diet can meet all your nutrient needs at any stage of life including when you are pregnant, breastfeeding or for older adults.
    The British National Health Service

    With good planning and an understanding of what makes up a healthy, balanced vegan diet, you can get all the nutrients your body needs.
    The British Nutrition Foundation

    A well-planned, balanced vegetarian or vegan diet can be nutritionally adequate ... Studies of UK vegetarian and vegan children have revealed that their growth and development are within the normal range.
    The Dietitians Association of Australia

    Vegan diets are a type of vegetarian diet, where only plant-based foods are eaten. With good planning, those following a vegan diet can cover all their nutrient bases, but there are some extra things to consider.
    The United States Department of Agriculture

    Vegetarian diets (see context) can meet all the recommendations for nutrients. The key is to consume a variety of foods and the right amount of foods to meet your calorie needs. Follow the food group recommendations for your age, sex, and activity level to get the right amount of food and the variety of foods needed for nutrient adequacy. Nutrients that vegetarians may need to focus on include protein, iron, calcium, zinc, and vitamin B12.
    The National Health and Medical Research Council

    Appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthy and nutritionally adequate. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the lifecycle. Those following a strict vegetarian or vegan diet can meet nutrient requirements as long as energy needs are met and an appropriate variety of plant foods are eaten throughout the day
    The Mayo Clinic

    A well-planned vegetarian diet (see context) can meet the needs of people of all ages, including children, teenagers, and pregnant or breast-feeding women. The key is to be aware of your nutritional needs so that you plan a diet that meets them.
    The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada

    Vegetarian diets (see context) can provide all the nutrients you need at any age, as well as some additional health benefits.
    Harvard Medical School

    Traditionally, research into vegetarianism focused mainly on potential nutritional deficiencies, but in recent years, the pendulum has swung the other way, and studies are confirming the health benefits of meat-free eating. Nowadays, plant-based eating is recognized as not only nutritionally sufficient but also as a way to reduce the risk for many chronic illnesses.
    British Dietetic Association

    Well planned vegetarian diets (see context) can be nutritious and healthy. They are associated with lower risks of heart disease, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, certain cancers and lower cholesterol levels. This could be because such diets are lower in saturated fat, contain fewer calories and more fiber and phytonutrients/phytochemicals (these can have protective properties) than non-vegetarian diets. (...) Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for all stages of life and have many benefits.

    I didn't say it was bad for you if you were careful. And teeth aside (chimps eat meat btw), humans are natural omnivores.

    It probably would be better if people ate less meat in general but what's the reason to make it a banned substance for your children? If they wanted a hamburger at a BBQ or something, should a parent be refusing it to them while all their friends chow down? Serving predominantly a vegetarian diet at home is one thing but saying "I raise my child as a vegetarian" is something else.

    It's the imposing of ideologies like "meat is murder" on children that I don't like, there's a pseudo-religious dimension to it that's whack.

    Chimps are not the only primates, there's also camels, hippos, and that weird-ass fanged deer which all feature sharp teeth and eat plants.

    I'm also on board with the 'if they want a hamburger, they can have a hamburger' kinda thing... however my kids would be raised vegetarian/vegan and get to make up their own mind as they go along.

    Also, while I don't go around screaming 'meat is murder' it's not hard to see the moral and ethical arguments against slaughtering animals for our own gain when there's other more humane options, no?


    :edit: im also aware this thread isn't for this topic, so I'm not going to continue on with this in here lest the thread get locked for being off topic. Do what you want, eat what you want tbh.

    Yeah I know about protein as a replacement but that's not the same as eating a steak. I'm all for lab grown meat if it's environmentally better than farms and tastes and feels like the real stuff.
