There’s also the fact that the reason Jesus died on the cross was so that Christians no longer had to follow the laws of the Old Testament.

By denying homosexuals the right to marry because of what it says in Leviticus, you are basically saying that Jesus’ sacrifice WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU.

^ which is why Christians don’t follow any Kosher laws

Religion: selective hearing at its finest.

The so-called ‘Bible’ was written by OLD MEN who elated events years, decades, or even CENTURIES after they occurred. The Old Testament is mainly bad history recounted by people who weren’t even ‘there.’If you want to know the real history of the Israelites read the Egyptian and Sumerian commentaries - the Hebrews were a collection of quarrelsome little tribes constantly squabbling with each other and their neighbors, often crushed by superior forces with better technology and fighting skills. The New Testament is a combination of poor journalism, proselytizing, and admonitions; a mishmash of public relations nightmares commented on by Thomas Jefferson as ‘mostly rubbish.’There is nothing in the NT that hadn’t been said before - Akhenaton and Zoroaster being the two most recognizable authors. The greatest achievement of the Jewish people was their defense of Masada almost fifty years after the death of Yeshua bar Yusuf…not his crucifixion. Many scholars believe that the more militant acts related in the NT were actually those of Barabbas - who was also named Yeshua….and what about the ‘suppressed Gospels?’

Those who don’t question authority are blind fools….

This is important. Stop big cat hunting. This literally is making me cry. 

The way the lion tries to shut out the light…

:Why would you shoot it?

In addition, the lion has to be trapped and transported to a ‘game preserve’ - nothing but a big ranch-style property that’s ‘licensed’ for hunting. The animal is then sedated and put out o n the ‘preserve’ where there is plenty of prey for them. Then the ‘hunter’ is driven out where the lion is, and the animal is shot at close range.

And they call it hunting…BULLSHIT! STOP BIG GAME HUNTING!

Hi! I don't know what I want to do with my life, but whenever I try to find out, I always circle back to food. How would you describe the culinary field?

Brutal. Miserable. Exhausting. Soul Sucking. Amazing. Perfect. I can’t imagine doing anything else.

^^ that’s a reply I gave to another person who asked me this question. I hope it helps.

Sounds about right.

My standard advice (slightly modified version of Anthony Bourdain’s advice to wannabe chefs) If you wanna work in food go get a job.  Lots of entry level work…  prep cooks… dishwashers… low-level-constantly-shit-upon line cooks… you can get that kind of job with no experience. if you do it for a year and don’t quit, murder somsone, or kill yourself, you might have the right thing broken inside to be a kitchen pro.  Hell… maybe even if you kill someone that doesn’t destroy your chances.

If you make it that first year, then I recommend Culinary School.

This is also super solid advice. Now that I’m not mobile, I can answer this a little more thoroughly.

  • Don’t expect too much. Going to culinary school pretty much just means you get to skip washing dishes. Having a piece of paper with some fancy signatures and a white coat with your name on it does not make you obligated to start any higher than anyone else. SO many people leave culinary school and immediately think they’re going to be offered a sous job. 
  • That’s not going to happen
  • if it does, recognize how incredibly rare that is.
  • Culinary school is about a lot more than just cooking. It’s about discipline. It’s a business school. I spend more time in a lecture hall being hounded about excel and costing and labor control than I do cooking. If you’re not ready for business school, don’t set foot in culinary school. 
  • If you wanna cook, go to a restaurant and ask to cook.
  • If you wanna be a chef, be prepared to handle the business aspect too.

Any of the other chefs on tumblr have anything else to add?

If you’re young and can afford it, go the apprentice route. Culinary school just isn’t the same. If possible, do your apprenticeship in France or go to the Cordon Bleu in Paris. It’s brutal, but you’ll be yards ahead of anyone trained in the US.
