    Non political rant. The UK has - apparently - a shortage of lettuces. Why does anyone care? I don't eat bloody lettuce in February. I'll eat leeks, carrots, cabbages... and rice pudding which I like. And soup and custard.

    But not bloody lettuce. It's too cold!

    Re: The Rant Thread (v 1.2)

    I just don't understand internet forums these days. It's all started at another forum. I was just helping a fellow member by cheering him up. He post saying that he was a loser and he didn't have anybody to play D&D in real life. So I PM him saying that he's not a loser. I post a thread about it for the goodness of my heart. Then the whole drama started. The guy who I cheered up with was very upset at me saying that I use my disability to troll people. Then this member who I thought was defending me accusing me for being a troll. I just don't get it I didn't even mentioning his name or anything like that. All I did was posting a good deed in the goodness of my heart and tell about it. I mean what the heck man?!

    Re: The Rant Thread (v 1.2)

    Think I'm going to have to stop eating eggs. I don't want to because they're packed with nutrients and I already have a limited diet but I'm sick of finding embryos in them all the time. I know that's what those little red dots connected to the yolk by a ghostly chord are because we studied chicken embryos at various stages of development on my zoology course at uni. I thought eggs weren't fertilised but I guess they aften are. Maybe those of you who keep hens can elaborate on why this is? Is it just that some eggs aren't collected soon enough?

    The other day I found one so far along you could see its eyes! It's not very clear and I had to zoom in, but I've included the photo I took.

    I'm pro-choice so maybe I'm being hypocritical here (and part of me is thinking 'ooh delicious stem-cells!'), but I'm a vegetarian and find embryos gross anyway (it's no secret that pregnancy freaks me out). I really don't want to be eating them.

    I bet this doesn't happen with eggs from caged hens...

    I think it's partially to do with the difference between EU and US egg requirements. They also generally don't refrigerate their eggs over there.

    That would explain it I guess. They probably get away with it because the average consumer doesn't have a degree in zoology.

    As you might expect, I buy free range eggs. I don't know if it would be different with caged hens because they don't get a chance to sit on the eggs. I first noticed embryos in eggs about 10 years ago, but it wasn't all the time (I noticed that when it did happen it would be the whole box, which kinda supports the storage temperature theory). These days it's almost every egg I crack open. Not usually as bad as the little guy I found the other day, but always some early signs of embryo development.

    It's freaking gross and I'm done with it. I'm going to find out exactly what I'm getting from eggs and see if I can replace it with other things.

    Free range might explain things,more chance of being with a rooster. An egg has to be fertilized to create an embryo. There is a school of thought that a fertilized egg is better. And then there is the Chinese 100 year old egg(Not that long really) that has an almost fully grown chick dead inside the shell.

    Fertilized eggs as healthy

    Free range is considered better than caged as well by some.

    That 100 year old egg thing.
