wtf is this retard talking about?

EDIT: I just now managed to get through to the end of this, and where does that PETA guy get his water consumption statistics? Like my high school math teacher told me: 86.4% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

It's funny, I wish more people would spend time researching things that are obvious but tainted by their aversion to PETA.

The production of meat takes lots of energy, land, water and a bunch of other stuff while producing a lot of (toxic) waste.

It's a pretty simple thing to understand but difficult for people to admit.

...actually, you could substitute "Pop Music" in place of "Meat", and it would still be true...



...I'm jus' sayin'...

That's absolutely true. Which leads one directly to the fact that trying to have a hit record is consumption of resources in order to satisfy a selfish desire - a far cry from the principle of "do no harm." I think about these things all the time.

Of course, "meat production" is far far worse, and that plus the extraordinary depravity of the "meat industry" is why I gave it all up 25 years ago.

The statistic I read & used to quote when I first became vegetarian, in 1977, was that took 17 times more resources to produce a hamburger than a nutritionally equivalent or superior meal without meat.  I now think that figure was quite low.

I'm a pescatarian, (not a vegetarian) but I won't buy fish except for on my anniversary, the occasional trip to my good friends sushi joint and the rare date with my wife.

Fortunately I can provide enough fish for the household myself, otherwise it'd be back to being a vegetarian. Being in contact of all of unpleasantries reminds me of the balance we must strike.

So, while some folks worry about the ethical treatment of animals I'm more concerned with the ethical treatment of what we are sold as food. The hormones, byproducts, drugs, genetic manipulations and all that scares the jeebus out of me.

Then again, for those of y'all who like BBQ i won't encourage you to become vegetarians but instead do something twice as good: convince two other people to become vegetarians.

i didnt use to eat much red meat or pork but then i got a grill.

now, fahgettaboutit. i love it. im a bbq addict.

i dont worry about the hormones, drugs, genetically modified whatever. if it tastes good i eat it. im sure being a vegetarian is healthy, but with all my other bad habits it wont make much of a difference. ive got one life and damnit im gonna enjoy it to the fullest!

plus, my family has a history of eating poorly, drinking, and smoking and living till 90. combined with medical advances during the next 50-60 years i think i'll b here a while.


unless i get hit by a bus. drive carefully!

God's Song, by Randy Newman


Cain slew Abel Seth knew not why
For if the children of Israel were to multiply
Why must any of the children die?
So he asked the Lord
And the Lord said:

"Man means nothing he means less to me
than the lowiliest cactus flower
or the humblest yucca tree
he chases round this desert
cause he thinks that's where i'll be
that's why I love mankind

I recoil in horror from the foulness of thee
from the squalor and the filth and the misery
How we laugh up here in heaven at the prayers you offer me
That's why I love mankind"

The Christians and the Jews were having a jamboree
The Buddhists and the Hindus joined on satellite TV
They picked their four greatest priests
And they began to speak
They said "Lord the plague is on the world
Lord no man is free
The temples that we built to you
Have tumbled into the sea
Lord, if you won't take care of us
Won't you please please let us be?"

And the Lord said
And the Lord said

"I burn down your cities--how blind you must be
I take from you your children and you say how blessed are we
You must all be crazy to put your faith in me
That's why I love mankind
You really need me
That's why I love mankind"
