    I wouldn't expect anything else from Miranda "I'm only doing this for shock value and clickbait" Constable.

    Sorry for this, but I keep losing myself in the thread - a couple of pages back someone said that Miranda was going crazy on lolcow, what did you/they mean by that? Screenshots? Again, sorry

    He (she?) kinda reminds me of Björk with the whole eyelid thing.

    This isn't an unpopular opinion, more like a question; did anyone else get some serious Red Velvet vibes from Q&A by Cherry Bullet? Does anyone know who composed their tracks for that mini album?

    Oh my God, the salad recipe looks so good afasgsdgfasf I fucking LOVE potatoes in salads and stuff! 
    Mini-rant about salads underneath the spoiler:
    All your recipes look so good! I love your blog! One thing that might not be very common in Romania but that you can use as a substitute for the pork in your bell pepper recipe is in essence quorn or minced soy meat. In Sweden there is a brand called Anamma and they have the most amazing knock-off soy meat I have ever tried! I use it as stuffing and in all kinds of stuff and plenty of my friends who have tasted dishes with Anamma in them have said that they can't tell the difference. I'm probably going to make your oriental salad next

    Thanks for all the replies to my seiyuu post, but I know that she'll never make it as one. I only speculated about what she will attempt because an entertainment visa, in her mind, can entail any and all interests that Kenna may have at the moment. This being said, my personal expectation is that her statement about trying to get an entertainment visa will be the same as when she said that she might try out modeling, which is ridiculous and will likely never happen. She said she talked to a talent agency willing to sign her, but my skepticism knows no bounds, so until the day she announces her contract I'll remain doubtful. 
    Side note, the video she uploaded was okay. She was a lot more natural in it than in her previous video.

    Makes me wonder if she's gonna try to cash in on that seiyuu action since she registered as a voice actor (without any gigs I presume). Gaijin voices in anime maybe? Pretty sure that's one of her dreams.

    What... what does this mean? I'm so confused. Like I literally squinted at my screen for a solid 45 seconds trying to decipher this. 
    Arrow on head = anime character man is meant to be Aang 
    Points at Frozen 2 = Avatar?? But anime man is confused??? 
    How is Frozen 2 equal to ATLA? What is the correlation? I get that the meme format is that anime man points to a butterfly and asks if it's a bird (he is confused/stupid/doesn't get it/misunderstands), and... so... What is the actual joke? Anime man/Aang doesn't understand that Frozen 2 isn't ATLA?? This makes no sense? 
    Frozen 2 =/= ATLA. 
    Ok. 
    Ok???
    Or??????

    I have upvoted you because I think that it's always good to do your best and contribute, but I feel the need to explain that plantromance and ilovenaturalmedicine (didn't thoroughly check out the rest for now) are very unhelpful pages in many aspects, sadly. A large part of the reason why veganism and vegetarianism often aren't taken seriously is because people are directed to false and entirely unscientific pages such as those. As I am vegan I am more than a proponent for how healthy you are able to become and how healthy your lifestyle can eventually be when you go plant-based - there are many physical issues that can be remedied through the consumption of plants. Without a doubt, I feel so much better since I went vegan. 
    With that being said, the no-meat movements lose traction and credibility when so-called "holistic health" pages spew absolute and total nonsense such as broccoli being an anti-cancer agent or that carrots help your eyesight in the same picture (a propaganda myth created by the British government during WWII to give the axis powers the impression that carrots were the cause of their amazing pilots' aim, when in fact it was their new radars that they installed in the planes). It also says that apples prevent cancer and that these plants can "detox" your body when that is so incredibly far from the truth. 
    I feel like vegans and vegetarians alike have a responsibility to ensure that no misinformation is spread and that we don't rely on non-peer reviewd research and publications, that that means that we cannot rely on instagram pages such as these. There is no "detoxing" of the body - your liver and kidneys take care of that for you. This is where fads such as juice and tea detox programs come onto the scene; these do not help and often just act as mild laxatives while promoting water loss from your body (leading to you shitting more and slimming down from less bloating) - but you are starved of nutrients at the same time. Let me elaborate without sub-text: there is not a single piece of research that supperts the idea of "detoxing". It doesn't exist. 
    One of the worst things we can do is spread this false information and act as though it is entirely fine to be reliant on things which are proven to have little or no effect. It is also extremely cruel to hand out false hope to those who are suffering from alzheimer's or cancer and tell them that as long as they eat broccoli or consume omega 3 and coconut oil then they will be fine or their ailments will be lessened. How can we justifiably say that "natural antibiotics" will help someone who suffers from gastroenteritis, streptococcus or pneumonia? They will only have an extended period of suffering without actual, prescribed antibiotics. Turmeric and honey are supposedly things that "even doctors can't explain" now? C'mon. 
    I want to explain - I am not criticizing you, only these pages. Again, like I said, I am all for seeking out plant-based alternatives for achieving a better overall health for your body, but I refuse to entertain the idea that people who have diagnosed issues will have it all solved just by eating som ginger, ginseng or blueberries. People have been eating (over- and underconsuming) vegetables for millennia and they still fell ill and died. My point here is that we tend to veer in the direction of the things we want to believe, but these things can be insanely subjective and are sometimes just smoke and flashing mirrors designed to fool you. 
    This being said, it's not like these pages are entirely useless. They contain motivational pictures, quotes and different ways of thought, not to mention that there is truth to certain things they post - the stretching and exercise advice is great! My only qualm is that there is so much misinformation that we need to avoid. Sorry for the long post, but please consider this. I only want the best for people, and while plants can do a lot, they can impossibly do everything. 
     
    EDIT: How fucking DARE they post this shit! A fruit cures your cancer? Jesus Christ! It doesn't take much to be disappointed, it really doesn't. Look at this, this is scientific research which proves that cancer patiens who turn away from medicinal treatments have significantly lower survival rates. We can't stand for this! People die from this misinformation.

    Thank you guys so much for the replies!
    I agree a lot with you on the seasoning thing, I kinda feel like lots of recipes could be improved so much more just by seasoning more intensely. That being said, I think a part of it might have to do with how the chef behind the recipe feels about food in general. I follow a couple of people but I tend to be pretty lazy with reading the blog parts, mostly because I'm interested in the actual food haha. 
    That being said, I find that The Korean Vegan does a good job of being both descriptive and good at seasoning, mostly because Korean food requires heavy seasoning to really catch those flavor nuances. There is also a Swedish blogger called Jävligt Gott (the name can be translated to Fucking Good or Bloody Good) and this man seasons the shit out of his stuff lemme tell ya. I tried to make a traditional Christmas dish called Janssons Frestelse (Jansson's Temptation) and it came out packed with flavor! The link leads to his vegan recipe category, and the website can be translated with Google Translate and still give a pretty good result.

    And I mostly agree with the options you've listed. To look Eastern European is also incredibly vague, like... Europe is as much a cultural and ethnic mosaic as most other continents, so even if Kenna were to believe that she looks Eastern European, that doesn't really mean anything?? This girl confuses me more than anything these days though lmao

    Yeah, she's married, but when did "the sanctity of marriage" ever apply to her? She doesn't care for one second that she's married, it's just another social tool that she can use to manipulate people and ensure that she has a continuous visa... (Well, not anymore, but still). God, I hope she gets deported and seeks help because she needs it. Who the hell marries three times before the age of thirty without even being in love? Lol insanity Miranderp

    His excuse is that he hates that he is Pinoy and that he justifies internalized colorism:))))) but tbh though, Edward's make up has always been trash when it is on himself. He can make other people look fine, but his own damn face? Too much to ask.

    I'd like to build on this as well and just say that, as a summary conclusion of your statement, Kenna does not know what self-sacrifice means. 
    Spoilered because I'm repeating myself lol

    Re: the thing about giving Kenna tips for videos to film or not - yeah, it doesn't matter. Kenna isn't gonna do any of the stuff that anyone here suggests no matter how good it is because she's too busy being self absorbed and not giving a shit about what's good for her (unless of course it's a tip landing in her inbox which is very well-written and gives her exact details on what to do... Cue sad laugh)
    And another thing. We've been over why none of us envy Kenna. Why do her fans keep thinking this? Why does Kenna think this??? I repeat, it doesn't fucking matter if anyone envies her, because criticism and feedback aren't based on what you wish you had. Fuck. Telling Kenna that she's a liar, a thief and a rude asshole doesn't change because I'd also like to be in Japan. Telling her that she is actively pushing away her followers because she's straight up mean to people doesn't fucking change because someone might wish they had the same amount of followers or the same pile of fucking money that she hoards. For god's sake, be a little more creative if you're gonna come for folks over here...

    Here's my take. Going from one religion to the other isn't controversial enough. Miranda is after nothing but shock value, and what does she need to do in order to achieve that? She needs to veer in an entirely different direction that is so radically opposed to the one she just came from. It also needs to be drastic, quick and mildly offensive. 
    I mean can y'all imagine seeing her post a YouTube video titled something like this:
    "From Saudi Muslim to Gay Male in 1 year? How I left Islam and found my trans identity and sexuality"
    She could hop on the transtrender thing, talk about being bi/gay/pan, claim how she was just a victim of mental abuse and psychological warfare from all her confusing stockers and crazy fans, and best of all, she could claim brownie points because she dramatically escaped Saudi Arabia, the most opressive state in the wo0o0o00orld. She'd be back in Japan, claim that Japanese people all have gay sex and they're so accepting of her (I mean who hasn't heard about yaoi and yuri, right?!?!), and of course she would tell all of us that she is now an authority on who is gay and who isn't because only real gay people can tell. 
    (This is a joke and not meant to offend anyone except Miranda)
