But pretending that a sandwich is some sort of sops isn't necessary. 
If you're in your own camp, eat what you want and there's no need to 
invent weird stories to justify it.

If you want SCA period food, eat SCA period food. If you want modern 
food (for some definition of modern food), eat that.

I just don't understand why you have to invent a story about it.
