When scientists get too honest
> I would love to see more science posts on Tumblr. I particularly liked, “The postdoc who did all the work has since left to start a bakery.”
Well scientists are still human after all.

Dear Qantas food department,
While most celebrities are writing open letters to each other about such important issues as gender equality, racism and cultural appropriation, I’m writing to you from the comfy seat of my Qantas flight from Alice Springs to Melbourne, about something dear to me heart: margarine.
Because of my Gold Frequent flyer status, I’m right up the front in economy with plenty of leg room, which despite my embarrassingly short legs I’m still grateful for. What I’m not grateful for, however, is something that has been on on-going occurrence since I switched my food preferences to “vegetarian” on the Qantas website many years ago. See, despite the abysmal lack of taste-buds we vegetarians are assumed to possess, I’m here to tell you, dear Qantas, that TWO PIECES OF DRY BREAD WITH A LIMP PIECE OF LETTUCE, TWO SLICES OF OLD RAW CAPSICUM, A MEASLY PIECE OF CUCUMBER AND THREE SLITHERS OF DRY CARROT DOES NOT A SANDWICH MAKETH!!!! No butter, not even any margarine, and certainly no chutney, cheese or mustard, no siree. Let’s put a puny wad of dry salad ingredients between two slices of bread and call it a meal, those hippies won’t know the difference! They should be grateful we’re catering for them at all, who do they think they are not eating meat!
I’m curious, honestly I am, did anyone behind the scenes ever at any point consider what this insultingly tokenistic gesture you’re calling a sandwich might actually taste like? Even if we have actually, as you assume, happened to have killed off half our taste-buds by not consuming animal flesh (which as we know is the only food with any taste)?
As I look out my window now at the vast expanse of red sand below me I can’t help but thinking that if a rabbit, desperately lost and starving in the Sahara desert, stumbled upon this sandwich it would not give it a second sniff. Or perhaps it would, like me, nibble on it reluctantly with a downturned mouth and resentment in its fury little heart as it’s friends ate gourmet marinated chicken sandwiches around it.
Aaaaaaah come on, we don’t deserve to be punished for not wanting to eat something that has mostly likely (as I’m gathering Qantas does not purchase it’s meat from free-range, organic farmers?) spent the entirety of it’s life in a cage where it never sees daylight, cannot spread it’s wings, dust-bath or socialize as chickens love to do, and has most likely has been pumped full of hormones to make it grow twice the size of an adult chicken within it’s first four months before it is slaughtered. Everyone has a right to decide what they eat, sure, but if we choose not to support this kind of farming shouldn’t we be granted due respect? And at the very least be served an alternative meal that has been given even the SLIGHTEST bit of consideration in the taste department. It can’t be too much to ask for you to slather a teeny bit of taste sauce on this handful of dry garden weeds I’m trying to swallow. Perhaps I could even be so bold as to request a bit of protein like my fellow flying mates too? You don’t want us vegos fading away, Qantas, we’re a good bunch, plus who’d be left to hug the trees, sing “kumbaya” and keep tie-dye in fashion?
Yours, in hopeful anticipation of just a wee bit of marg’…
