I brought - not caring for yourself - and - not caring for others - together because they are an extension of one another. True that you don't need one to have the other but they are related.

From what I have seen, if there is apathy in one area then it seems to reflect in other areas of ones life.

In other words - everthing we do and do not do effects our surroundings (cause and effect), by eating that bag of chips you not only injured yourself because our entire society supports the production of the chips, the bag, the trasportation, the marketing, all the way to the disposal of that bag and you. It is all related, hence my thoughts on not caring for yourself - is - not caring about the entire system.

I didn't mean to come off as judging, I want to understand it. I like to know more about why people do things and their reasoning behind those actions.

If the case was that people didn't take care of themselves through lack of knowledge and information then I would understand that, what I don't understand is the countless number of people who know the ill effects of something and do it anyway. This ties into not only eating.

Like CupCake said though, she would rather die of something than die of nothing, which I take as meaning enjoy the food and activity's you are doing regardless of their harful effects towards you or others. Does that come back to the saying about lethargic bliss?

Again, I just want to know more, nothing personal about it. Except for people who eat egg mcmuffins ROFV

Jared,
What exactly is "Tin Tam"? Sounds like it might be your version of our "Spam", (pork meat product in a can).

Opps Tim Tam actually. It's a popular Australian chocolate biscuit. Take your pick !

It's really easy Brendan, it's because the bag of chips tastes nice!

"...We actually have it (vegemite) here. But no thanks. Its too much of an acquired taste really. I'll have a Tin Tam anytime..."

I grew up with vegemite. My older brother preferred peanut butter, so my choice was narrowed down to the other available spread.

I always thought that marmite was more of an acquired taste, but whilst in England it became my favourite over vegemite. When I returned to Australia, I found the vegemite taste very salty. Nevertheless, I forgot what marmite tasted like & went back to vegemite. I haven't eat it for probably 3 years now, and don't have any craving for it.

Fruits (mostly apples and oranges, but sometimes also bananas and pears.. ) along with some yoghurt and a cup of juice...

Thanks Jared!!
I'll take all but the hazelnut. Hazelnut flavored anything never tastes like the real nut itself (which I love), so I'm always disappointed and left with a "bad taste".

My most unusual breakfast was cold Pizza, actually it tasted fine.
