Ahem

Screw you Carol Vorderman, and screw your detox. Shove it up your sorry wheat free behind.

There, that's better.

Last night, we (that is easterbunny and myself) were bad.

Well, very bad.

So, one cheeseburger, dos equis and glass of wine later, I'm feeling a much more well rounded human being. For lunch I will have a sandwich, containing meat, dairy, wheat and lots of fat. So there. And a coffee (to misquote Chandler from friends "Ah, dark mistress, once again I suckle at thy teat!").

I'm a quitter, but as it goes I'm fine with that. Life is supposed to be experienced, and eating is one of the experiences I enjoyed the most. The detox diet is bereft of joy and so I thumb my nose at it.

We still have the very green contents of the fridge to finish, and we've discovered some tasty, yet healthy options which we can add in to our diet, however I shall most certainly be having some ESB and a steak on Thursday at The Star. So there.

In other news, I just ranted at one of those annoying 'accost you in the street charity people' about the fact I don't like being accosted in the street. Does this make me a bad person? But stop, surely this is a fine opportunity for my first poll!

Am I evil incarnate?

Yes, you ill spirited fiend.

No, they are obviously cads and should leave us well alone.

I explained that photosynthesis requires light, and that at night the reaction goes into reverse (i.e. plants take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide), so it all cancels out.

Since things that aren't plants (eg people, cars, marsupials) take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide 24/7, you might hope for the sake of the long-term survival of the animal kingdom that the plants produce more oxygen than they consume...
I'm not an expert on this myself (my information basically comes from reading "The Science of Discworld"), but I think we mainly rely on algae in the sea to provide our oxygen. More specifically, it is false to say that "the rainforests are the lungs of the planet".
