Spider Vs. Beetles

 

Remember back in April when Starbucks and bunch of other companies who uses “Organic” food dyes were caught using small bugs found in Africa or South America?

Well my friend and I got into an argument on what bug they used. I saw that it was a Spider.. while my friend believed it was a Beetle.. Well we are kinda both wrong.. One website suggests that it is not a Beetle but doesn’t explicitly state that its spider, and from the looks of this bug it’s not a Spider either… Many websites refer it as Parasite (well Wikipedia and other bit more reliable sources does).

Why did I bother to research about the stupid bug?

I love Starbucks’s Strawberry Frappuccino.. (I didn’t have one for long time cause of this I recently had it that’s why I got into this argument)

Although I understand Vegan’s and Veterinarian’s concern for their choice of food, I think that there is nothing wrong with it. I don’t see any kind of festering situations because of this. Few cases of Allergic reactions were reported, but that is too small for the larger mass to turn to other alternative. The only two alternatives are derivatives of tar..

To be honest, I am rather relieved to know that I know what makes the drink pink. I don’t believe ignorance is a bliss most of the time and this is one of them. I really hope that Americans can care more about their health and make many food processing corporations that might be good as Starbucks or bad as McDonald to come clean about what they use in their food.

Is this what we really need?

I haven’t had a post in a while cause I have been busy and if I continued this procrastination I knew that I would not post for a while due to upcoming AP tests so this is me ranting about stuff I don’t get and hate

 

So that red circled part in the mysterious picture is miniature build of the project that my church is working on………
as far as I know they cost around 130,000 dollars give or take 100

From the church`s point of view this spending is very justified.
My church lacks main hall because they believe my generation is more important. I understand that they need proper sermon hall.

But from my point of view that is a lot of money which could have been donated to charities to help out hunger issues in Africa and other 3rd world countries. Lets do some simple math here

$10 can feed a kid for 10 days according to UNICEF

130000 /10 = 13000

13,000 kids!!! Lets see that sounds a lot to me doesn’t it?
I hate to see those money wasted….

another thing.. if the next generation is so important what about the kids in Africa that I am talking about Why not feed them?

I really can’t wrap my head around this
I want your opinion on this

Should the church spend the money to fund organizations like UNICEF to end world hunger or should build the Main hall?
