    morally its completley off..
    if the poor teach us anything its to enjoy what you have and not take what you have/ could have for granted.
    and healthwise its completley off as well. haha
    i mean, sure its probably okay to eat, when its on a plate, when its inside a garbage can outside for so long its different.

    I don't know about Freeganism, but I think I would have enjoyed living in a hunting/gathering society.

    Going out hunting, chucking a spear about sixty miles per hour and watching a mammoth fall...now that would rock!

    Camping for a while, then moving...heck I do that now. lol

    Sitting around a camp fire making my spear stone, telling exaggerated stories of the hunt! Back in the day when the extent of foreplay was dragging women back to the cave or tent by their hair!

    No IRS! no religion! no one has to struggle with being overweight. No big pharma, no big government. No idiots on cell phones. Just a big campfire party every night.

    Hell yes that would have rocked!

    Freeganism just seems like a way to try and save money off of food. I'd say get a garden going in your yard.

    They're cheap and not hard to manage. You can save quite a bit of money from having a good sized garden. And you know most of what goes into the food you'll be eating.

    Unlike with a dumpster.

    my sis lived with some freegans for a while who went dumpster diving behind the grociery for thier food

    there were several bouts of food poisoning among them- my sis, who disapproved thoroughly and bought her food from the farmers market, enjoyed wandering through the room of moaning people and saying "i told you so"

    no thanks, in elementary school i threw away my retainer enough times to have had my fulfillment of dumpster diving. besides I don't want to die from food poisoning that sounds like a terrible way to die.
    In no likes experiment.
