All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Notes: current

Yes, today on my 17K walk I have seen this scene: two guys in red shirts were caring a white sofa through the park, and a boy in white ran around them.

Below is a simple list of my more significant runs and walks (those much longer than 10K) in the last months of 2017, in kilometers (km, or K), starting with the most recent ones:

  • December: 17, 9, 9, 12, 9, 9, 8, 9, 7, 8, 10, 9, 7, 10
  • November: 10, 11, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 10, 10,11.

I do not count those under 5K.

It looks like I was not making my usual former 10K! I did not track the distance during the runs - it interrupts my audio-books, and I prefer to look at it later - and assumed that the distance I measured earlier was enough. Now I need to run about 1 km further to add 2K and make sure I make over 10 km (6.2 miles). There are a few days left in December, so maybe I could add a few 10s in my list.

When a human kills an animal for food, he is neglecting his own hunger for justice. Man prays for mercy, but is unwilling to extend it to others. 


A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms. Viruses can infect all types of life forms, from animals and plants to microorganisms, including bacteria and archaea. 

There are millions types of viruses, ~ 5,000 virus species have been described in detail. Viruses are found in almost every ecosystem and are the most abundant type of biological entity. The origins of viruses in the evolutionary history of life are unclear. 

While not inside an infected cell or in the process of infecting a cell, viruses exist in the form of independent particles, virions, which consist of the genetic material made from either DNA or RNA, a protein coat, and in some cases an outer coat of lipids. Virion is about one one-hundredth the size of a bacterium. Apple
