He posted some things (for no apparent reason) that grossly violated the code of conduct. The thread in question has been spirited away (due to grossness).

Admittedly, I only saw the edited version of Dip's topic, but you know what? I actually really liked it.

Dikiyoba: I thought the skeleton was there to rise from the plate and attempt to murder you back?

At Salmon: Dude, it's in to be pale and malnourished this season! Edit: I would like to add that I hope that my vegetarian comments come across as slightly tongue-in-cheek. I mean, you're welcome to your opinion, and you can eat whatever you like. I'd just rather murder some grapes than a lamb.

Also: A video for you all to enjoy. All I ask is that you watch.

There is no video which will make a baconator taste anything but delicious...

I see your video as evidence that more delicious meat is entering my food chain. :P

Nalyd is a vegetarian, too. . . Though not for any moral reason. He just doesn't like meat. Or most things containing any protein whatsoever.

Progress. Just asserting our genetic dominance. ;)

I see your... disturbing video and raise you one Meatrix, Nikki. Anyways, I'm not a vegetarian, but a lot of meats, especially bacon, white meat, and pig I simply will not eat. And some of the reasons are even moral.

Dude, if genetic dominance had anything to do with it, you'd be in the film, in a starring role, not posting. ;)

I would like to know more about this supposed pig insanity. It implies they had legitimate thoughts to begin with.

Vegan's are the reason that there will never be a sentient species of plant. At least the rest of us are equal opportunity eaters...

As much as I agree that the treatment of these animals is cruel, unfair, and completely unnecessary, I'm not likely to become vegetarian because of it. I can't stand the thought of my primary source of protein for the rest of my life being soy-based.

I do find it ironic how poorly innocent animals are treated, especially when compared with, say, the lifestyles (and "deathstyles") of people on death row. You'd think that we could come up with a more humane way of dealing with meat slaughter, if the undeserving wretches in prison get it so good. (Mind you, I'm a supporter of capital punishment, and I think it's entirely too humane, and much better than some criminals deserve.)

I most certainly did not. And I note how his wisdom is as yet unheeded.

You could probably find organic and/or local sources of meat, eggs, and dairy. It just takes more work and costs more money. (Which hurts, yes.) It shouldn't be too hard to find, though. If a brand is selling milk without using horomones or eggs from free-range chickens, they will be advertising it right on the carton.

And it's not like soy beans are the only legumes out there. :P

Dikiyoba.

Edamame are pretty tasty. If you're ever at a Japanese restaurant, I recommend them.

Ironic that people are treated better than animals? It mostly has to do with the Eighth Amendment's Cruel and Unusual Punishment Clause. People have rights; animals are chattel. I don't approve of how they're treated in the process of becoming food, but there's a big distinction there.

Good thing we are always 100% sure about the guilt of people we put on death row, huh? :rolleyes: You know, if the US is too soft on criminals for you, I understand Iraq, Pakistan, and China are nice this time of year...

Indeed, I do now regret bringing up the herbivore vs omnivore meme.

Once again, it is all my fault.

Damn, I'm good. :P

Too bad I've stumbled across this only now, when the fishsticks have become stale already (as a topic I mean). Otherwise I would have added this:

Over here|in the land of chocolate we don't get any cod-fishsticks, since the Portugese catch them all and dry and salt them before tossing them back into the ocean. It's only after this that the English drag the sorry mess out of the ocean and batter it into their national dish number one. Therefore, no cod-fishsticks for the rest of us. We only get the Alaska pollock (or pollack) ones.

This is what I would have shared with you. Too bad the topic has shifted again.

I'm afraid the penalty around these parts for revisiting a theme half a page late is death by fishstick.

I tried soy-based food once. I was ill for days, couldn't get the vile coy, sweet taste out of my mouth.
