I'll destroy your "norms"

8


8 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I will tell you one of your culturally accepted "truths" is wrong and prove it to you. I will pick a random topic that I think you might not know about. If you know the thing that I tell you, let me know and I will tell you something else.

I know a lot of urban-myths, and things that are socially accepted as true, you likely even believe them yourself - yet are completely wrong.

Let me destroy your norms in a fun educational way.

Here's an example:
Organic fruits and vegetables - Did you know that Organic fruits and vegetables still get sprayed with harmful pesticides? The difference is the types of pesticides. Since Organics cannot be GMO's either, they actually need more potent pesticides in order to protect them.

In addition Organic fruit when researches performed taste test studies, performed equally or less well across multiple studies, compared to fruit that is not labeled as Organic.

Organic farming has been declared an unsustainable/scalable practice. Yields on Organics are lower and we could not feed the world purely on organic fruits and vegetables.

GMO's slightly different topic, but GMO's should probably be renamed to OMG's.
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism - we use GMO's on a daily basis to produce fuel, feed our bodies and produce meatier better tasting livestock.

While the argument of "Playing God" is valid. At our current capability with genetics we're not yet putting cow genes into lettuce to make better veggie burgers[maybe some day - I bet it will be udderly delicious.]. The current reality is actually that we're mixing plant genes together, taking genes from similar plants that have natural defences against bugs and other non human predators, including genes that build resistance in the plant to improve it's survivability. This gene manipulation is actually very similar to what we've been doing with plants all along anyways. We've been mating plants to create new ones for hundreds of years, and frankly it's done nothing but good for us. We have a lot of new fruits and veggies that never existed before us, and our crops are stronger and more resilient meaning more food for us.

Skeptics often claim "we don't know the long term side effects of using GMO's so they must be bad" yet this actually isn't true, long before GMO's were fed to people we fed them to animals for decades.

GMO's are still heavily regulated in the US and much of the world and have to go through a lot of testing before they are allowed to be sold for consumption - for obvious reasons.

Contact me now to learn other things like:
Why engagement rings are really just a big marketing ploy, and even with knowing that, you still have to buy one.
Why pure bred dogs are flat out animal abuse.
Why bottled water isn't actually better for you than your tap water.
Why a dress isn't any more "women's clothes" than pants are "guy's clothes".

Note I upped my price by a couple simbi, this is because of the amount of time I spend on this for you. Typing it all takes time. Trust me it's worth it and more than fair. Read my reviews for this service as evidence.

About Jon McLaren

I've been designing websites and web media since I was 8 years old. I can remember when I was 10 editing photos of toys I took. Making my toy monster trucks actually huge and putting them over images ...of my city. Since then I've honed my skills and have become proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator and other great design tools. Building websites and email marketing campaigns. I like creating cool things and I really want to share that ability with the world. I work as a front-end web developer creating some really cool interactive experiences and bringing great designs to life. I highly recommend checking out a few of my codepens.show more
