    I think I have seen it all now!

    .

    I was a bit shocked with what I saw today.
    I'm not a worldly person and I might even be
    accused of being a bit naive but I saw something
    today and I had to stop and take another look.

    A bloke in the town looked a bit disheveled possible
    homeless and he was drinking vegetable oil from
    a plastic bottle.

    Are we that bad as a nation that people have to do that?

    I wasn't sure I saw what I did and I stopped and stared
    walking off I told my wife what I just saw and she just said
    he would be taking it for the calories?

    I can't believe what we have become.

    I think I have seen it all now.

    Are you sure it wasn't cider?
    Paul.
    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    As an alcoholic and addict (12yrs recovered) I can assure you that at the time I was drinking and using I would drink anything, and I mean anything to get that feeling. I would snort my grandmothers ashes if I though it would do me good. It is a very very sad state of affairs for these guys/gals and I hope one day they too can find what I was blessed to find

    That's why I stopped, I probably looked rude because I actually stared

    It was a small plastic vegetable oil bottle and the fluid was thick,
    I could be wrong and cider is a possibility but oil drags when it
    moves and this stuff was as thick as oil I'm shocked to say.

    Heroin addicts get horrendous constipation, more so if they're on it all day every day.

    Drinking vegetable oil can act as a laxative.

    Without knowing him, who’s to say he “has” to do it??

    It’s a different take on this, but he might be perfectly happy with his life, and might simply not want to conform to “being normal”. I do some things because I want to, not because I have to, my job being one of them, and it’s quite conceivable that this guy might be the same.

    Without asking him, who’s to know??

    Fair point, nobody should be judged by others standards
    but we do don't we? We all judge others and I'm not sure
    what I thought at the time, but I didn't think drugs I just
    thought why, why would someone drink oil?

    I suppose the judging came later.
