We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
My dad has this. It's gotten worse since he retired because he has nothing else to do.
Always concerned with the nutrients in everything one eats, every second of the day, popping dietary supplements and herbal supplements.
He doesn't shop at Whole Foods and he stops short of talking about pesticides (probably because Mr. FJord and I are former farmers and I've straightened him out on a lot of the outright lies that foodies spread) or at least doesn't around us, but it's the most annoying thing ever. I wouldn't care if it was just about what HE eats, but he starts dictating on what me and my family should eat...
I have a good friend of some 45 years who has this. He truly believes if he were to eat a little bacon (or anything from a long list of "harmful" foods) that all his years of eating "perfectly" would be lost and he would die sooner as a result of his failing.
