Not everybody is dynamic on their back
Bring whatever you've got and try to improve..."
Howard, you were subconsciously channeling DBS! You must turn this into something. I'm already imagining the rest of it, but I want to hear what would come out of your brain. It's always magnificent.

Howard jokes about meat eaters as being "critter Sanduskies" on the show frequently. I find it pretty hilarious. Until recently, I had assumed the issue with eating meat was strictly related to morality of killing another creature. A colleague turned me on to an interesting topic called Virtual Water (I'd recommend reading pages 13-22 of this linked article). By the name, it sounds like selling water on the Internet. It's actually the water needed to produce certain types of food. The studies show that it is more economical and environmentally friendly to be a vegan or vegetarian. For example, to produce 1kg of grain you need about 1000-2000kg of water, for 1 kg of cheese 5000-6000kg and for 1 kg of beef ~16,000kg of water. The numbers may seen high, but consider all the processes of preparing 1 kg of meat: growing feed, drinking water of the animal for its entire life, preparing the meat, maintaining the equipement to produce the meat, transporting it, storing it, etc. Obviously there are weaknesses in this article. Climate conditions throughout the world are quite different, so is this water use actually an impact on us or not? It's a tough call but something interesting to think about when considering the types of food we consume.
Anyway, I really enjoy the shows, so keep them coming.

No I'm just kidding, I love me some Dustin and I love how loose Two Charted is. I have a thing for loose, messy podcasts (see: The Todd Glass Show). Keep it up Ku and Wie!

(Yes, Kulap's theme is better - but it's also clearly the best song ever written. I'm only holding Howard and Dustin to so much here.)
3 Charted 4 eva!
