Imagine you are the owner of a small bakery. Every day, you make say, 50 cinnamon raisin bagels, 50 plain bagels and 50 onion bagels. You notice that at the end of most days, there are no cinnamon raisin bagels left. There are around 10 plain bagels left. And around 25 onion bagels left. So […]
Chalking protest at Norwich McDonald’s after Vegan Revolution claims staff member threw water over himby Anticarnist
“Daddy, what are they writing?” There was silence as I could tell her father was reading the words written in colourful chalk around the McDonald’s they were just inside of.
