    Burgers and steaks are two entirely different entities. It's not like steak is a grown-up burger. But chicken nuggets are grown-up dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets. Now JBR, maybe when you become 14 you can move on to chicken tenders.

    If you don't mind me asking, why? Is it for health or just distaste?

    I used to love chicken nuggets. Then I read what they do with processed chicken.

    If the dinosaur shaped ones are cheaper, I'd buy them. I think that makes me more of an adult.

    i could give two shits how my food is made. these taste fantastic, cost the same as "big boy" chicken nuggets and i can dunk them in bar-b-q sauce tar pits.

    Adults should eat chicken tenders, kids eat chicken nuggets.

    Rogan was talking about something tangential to this on his podcast last week.

    In our society, there is no coming of age ritual. There's no line that marks "Now, you are a man."

    Oh, we lose our virginity, we move out on our own, we get married, etc. But there's not that line, that clear point where before that point we were treated as children and after that point we were treated as adults. I think it's common among American/Western families that you move out on your own, but your parents still treat you like a kid.

    That has its good point and bad points, of course. But this society just doesn't have that ritual.

    The problem, IMO, is that the rest of this society isn't built to take that into account. Not really. Other cultures assume that adult children aren't treated like adults by parents, and build the family unit that way. Western culture, and particularly American culture, both wants adult children to be adults AND wants to keep them subordinated to their parents...

    Sorry, sociology shit in my head right now.
