Hey, saw your lap-swimming page for the first time! A 1650 is a good distance for a non-competitive swimmer!
Just for reference, not to make you feel bad - today I went a straight 4K, 176 lengths, 88 "laps", in about 70 minutes.
You could go a lot faster and further in freestyle not breaststroke.

Thank you!
I prefer breaststroke for many reasons.
I wish I had a lake to swim :)

Feedback, besides the name of this page, is a nice encoding of what I am about to say here.

Pumpkin seeds, and fruit seeds in general, are not ethical fruitarians' food since there is no good ethic in general eating of fruits without any natural feedback to their species' life cycle, that is, without the release of those fruits' seeds into the environment; such a release would give chances for those seeds to grow into new plants of their kind. If the seeds from fruits are eaten and digested, those apparently cannot grow into new plants. Fruit seeds may be swallowed and even accidentally digested, but that does not make them regular food.
By “fruits” I mean fleshy fruits; and by “fruit seeds” I mean seeds from fleshy fruits, not seeds from pods, nor nuts, nor seeds in general.

This comment is about pumpkin seeds being mentioned in Amino Acids in Fruits and Seeds, and refers to ethics in fruitarianism discussed in Defining Fruitarianism and elsewhere on this site.

This is beautiful:

“From philosophical perspective, veganism is a subset of fruitarianism, because fruitarians take to consideration lives of other living organisms, which do not necessarily belong to animal kingdom (Animalia or Metazoa).”

Let me match your behavior, Lena, as the ethical fruitarianism author that you are, to that of a fruit plant species. So, you have your habitat at fruitarians.net, where your fruit plants – the articles (t)here – grow, yielding fruits – the sentences, and we, the readers, pick those fruits, digest them into thoughts and feed our minds. There is at least one idea – the seed – of (ethical) fruitarianism in each topical sentence of your articles, so when we digest the sentences, we get their ideas/seeds. Now, do you like us to feed back those ideas, possibly made up in us, to your habitat, so they may grow into new articles?

George Bernard Shaw

The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity. 

Veganism

Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated rejection of the commodity status of animals. A follower of either the diet or the philosophy is known as a vegan.

Dietary vegans refrain from eating animal products, not only meat but also egg and dairy products and other animal-derived products. The term "ethical vegan" is often applied to those who extend the philosophy beyond diet into other areas of their lives. Environmental veganism refers to avoiding animal products on the premise that harvesting or industrial farming of animals is environmentally damaging and unsustainable.

The term vegan was coined in 1944 by Donald Watson when he co-founded the Vegan Society in England. At first this meant "non-dairy vegetarian" and later that one "should live without exploiting animals".
