Baggy shorts usually cause chaffing. Peanuts in the shell? They take up a lot of space, they take time to shell, they're messy and would not sit very well in most people's stomachs when riding, or running or any physical activity. And you belittle people who use packaged, or as you say "processed" food bars. There are an infinite number of food bars that are way more beneficial to eat during a ride than peanuts in a shell.
I think your comments here about other people's riding and eating decisions are a whole lot meaner that your description of the response you received. Sissy, plastic, processed, snot - you don't sound very mature or accepting of others.
