There are some good arguments for vegetarianism. Not just health reasons but humane ones. Animals have personalities, even cows and especially pigs. When I was a kid I lived on a farm for a few years, it was a great contrast cause up until then I spent my whole life in the inner city.

Where I was living there was this cow. I would visit with it several times a day. I wasn't the one who milked it regular but still I developed a bond with it. It would come running over when it saw me, and I know it would do that for almost no one else. We were buds.

Then a while back my brother in law talks me into buying a whole cow with him. He picked me up to go and get it. When we got to the farm the damn cow was still alive. It was still with the mother. My brother in law pulls out a 22 rifle and he and the farmer pull the cow into the barn. The mother cow knew exactly what was going on and its "moos" began to sound really scary, It was calling for the younger cow. After the pop there was some rustling and then there was another pop. He calls me into the barn and has me help hold the legs open as he gutted it. The innards spilled out onto the floor of the barn.The steam and smell of the inside of the cow hanged in the air. The mother cow outside no doubt smelled and knew what had happened, it began makeing crazy sounds that I never knew a cow could make. It was almost wining in sorrow. 

I never really enjoyed that beef. Think I gave most of it away.

More recently I had a pet rooster named poppy cock. It knew what time I would come home from work and it would wait for me on the tree where I park. Sometimes it would jump into the cab of the truck to greet me before I had time to get out. 

Indians, more specifically Hindus; dont eat meat. Because their belief is that killing of any kind is wrong.

Im not a vegetarian but sometime I wonder.

The thought of Robert DeNiro's delivery of this line is invoking a lot more humor, personally, than I would have expected, given a rather modest beer consumption this PM.

Cap, somewhat understand your sentiments.  Unfortunately the predicament of our own species is acute enough that I have hardly enough pity left for other species after the senseless slaughter of our own at such locations as the Somme, et al.  However I have great respect for the personally motivated vegetarians without the angry political streak, most particularly exemplified by the Hindus.  And of any culture, theirs is the one I'd be most amenable to sans meat!  Dal, bhaingan, various veg, all of it very well flavoured and spiced, with rice and bread.

It is interesting how relative vegetarianism can be...it seems the further away animals are from us on the genetic scale the more amenable we are to consuming them...some "vegetarians" of India consider fish completely acceptable, as "vegetables of the sea".  The closer to humans they get, the more qualms we have with killing and eating them.  Primates for example rarely are killed and eaten by Western cultures.

We had a farm up until I was 10.  We had goats.  One year my folks decided to get a baby bull for eventuall slaughter.  Having no where else to put him (and not wanting to build more fences), he ended up in the same pasture as the goats.  One day my uncle called him 'Fred' and the name stuck.  You could tell Fred considered all the goat kids his age as his peers - he would try to play with them.  Their favorite game was King of the Hill - the kids would all be bucking and butting heads, trying to push each other off.  Fred would lumber up the hill, the kids would scatter and Fred look triumphantly down on them and then let out his twisted moo/baa sound, wodering why they all ran away.

When Fred was sent to his eventually demise, we ended up giving most of the beef away.  Don't name your food...

Totally agree don't name your food. If you are going to kill it.

I have dogs and they bring me alot of joy.  I also have cats.  Yes...I am animal lover.

So this issue is a very difficult one for me to handle sometimes.

Title: Re: fak i need sleep
Post by: beersk on September 02, 2010, 03:09:09 PM
Sad story, Cap.

I absolutely love meat.  I don't eat that much red meat, to be honest, but I really enjoy it.  I'd rather not see the slaughter of the animal part, that'd really make me not want to eat the meat at all, and it's something I enjoy so I don't want to ruin that.  I don't like the meat industry, it's brutal and cruel.  But what are we to do?  Farming is more harmful to the environment than the meat industry with fertilizer and runoff into rivers.  Also it takes more space and we are running out of space.  It's not possible to sustain our existence on organic farming.  I think eating meat is a necessary evil.  I would just like to see the industry make a shift more towards free range or just having happier animals instead of keeping them in CAFOs.
Title: Re: fak i need sleep
Post by: Slowbrew on September 02, 2010, 04:08:18 PM
I grew up on a farm (18 years - cradle to college) and I can honestly say naming our food never made it taste different.  We had milk cows, stock cows, cattle, hogs, sheep, ducks, chickens and other various experiments.  You've never tasted better hamburger than that made from an old milk cow. 

It didn't sit well with my (future) wife when she came out for supper one night and asked "where's that lamb that always follows you around?" and my answer was "Oh, Charlemagne, he's on the grill.".  She got over it.   :)

I understand people's squeamishness but really, it's raised to be food, there's no other reason to feed livestock if it isn't going to be eaten by someone.  Every animal has a personality but if farmers let that get to them we'd starve.

Free range livestock isn't sustainable unless we make serious changes to our diet.  It would mean no 16 oz. sirloins or big juicy burgers.  We'd all be healthier but I don't see it happening.  Here in the mid-west we produce so much corn that it isn't worth what it costs to raise it and we can't eat it.  We have so much that we invented an idiotic fuel production system to try and use it and then the government subsidized it.  We used to raise crops besides corn and soybeans but we don't anymore due to the demand for meat products.

We can feed the world off the farm land in the USA, we just can't do it and raise so much meat at the same time.  As a T-shirt I saw at the State Fair said "Put down the Pork Chop on a Stick and move to the salad bar".

Sorry for the rant.

What is really cruel is eating PLANTS.  They don't have a chance at all.  They are rooted to the ground & can't get away.  If we humans were at all sensitive, we'd stick to eating animals.  If they don't want to be eaten they at least can attempt to resist.

Sorry slowbrew, just thought I would tell a little story in one of these goofy threads. Ya know make things a little interesting in the pub with a debatable subject.

Im not arguing for or against meat consumption. Just not always sure it is right for me. Dont know if will ever stop doing it but I might not ever stop thinking about it either.

Americans are so detached from their food. Most people dont even have a clue.

Ill hunt, eat meat and all that, but the ground hogs in my back yard eat out of my hands.

Its cool though, pretty soon they will be able to grow just the leg without the lamb.

Ever read The Jungle? Thats an interesting book.

Check out this movie if you ever get a chance, it is almost surreal.

Its been years since I read it and I still think of it often.

How bout when they were trying to harvest meat from the cows while still leaving them alive. The plan being that the meat will grow back to be harvested again later.

That and the Communist Manifesto? What the heck were you studying?

In the realm of ghastly, awful things "higher" education forced us to read the pinnacle for me was "The Female Man".  I also thought A Separate Peace was s***, too, but not in the same extreme way (why didn't they just have us read "Leave It To Psmith"?).

I guess I'm weird. I may not have loved every book I read for class, but I was happy to have read them.

Then again I usually read 3 books a week, so reading a book is no big deal to me.

The one that does amaze me though is the number of people I know (including some of my very smart colleagues) who are perversely proud about having never read a book after they finished school.

Don't get me wrong...I love reading, and make full, almost larcenous use of my local public library, and I have since I was very young.  Where I get annoyed is when schools used to force us to read particular books, particularly when the value or quality of that book is wildly overestimated.  I would have preferred, if they are going to force and direct our reading, that they at least make us read the actual classics.  My publicly-educated peers are largely a class who can recall reading "Goosebumps" stories and Choose Your Own Adventure, and were forced to read (and write essays about) books like "A Separate Peace", but very few of us (only the self-motivated) have read any Chaucer, Twain, or my recent favorite, Kipling.  I'm totally in favor of "populist" fiction, by all means (most would consider my favorite authors Wodehouse and Douglas Adams in that class), but if schools are going to force us to read stuff without choice, let's pick novels with some history and influence on our culture, not, well...like I referenced, "The Female Man", which is bound and printed dung, basically.  Of course, I'm a bit old school in this as I'm a bit bitter they didn't at least try to teach us some Latin!  :D

The jungle is a big book to swallow. Didnt mean to even imply that it is good. But it is interesting.

The early part of the 20th Century was one of a great many big, new ideas.  The literature of the time period is full of that sort of thing, lots of imaginative visions of alternate utopias and societal restructurings.  Bit of a shame that a great many of those "big new ideas" were "big new very bad ideas", but you take the rough with the smooth, I guess!

EDIT: granted the Jungle wasn't quite like that but there are parallels.  I've skipped it, personally, because at this point it would just be historical interest leading me to it.

It's funny how BFI comes in, rambles incoherently and we're all off to the races.

A BFI walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and proceeds
to fire it at the other patrons. 'Why?' asks the confused, surviving waiter amidst the carnage,
as the BFI makes towards the exit. The BFI produces a badly punctuated wildlife
manual and tosses it over his shoulder.

'Well, I'm a BFI,' he says, at the door. 'Look it up.'

The waiter turns to the relevant entry in the manual and, sure enough, finds an explanation.
'BFI. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.'

This is one of those NBforum carryovers...I hate to say "you just had to be there", but well, yeah. 

Followers of the phenomenom may possibly recall, for example:

 "Drink up," said Ford, "you've got three pints to get through."

 "Three pints?" said Arthur. "At lunchtime?"

 The man next to ford grinned and nodded happily. Ford ignored him. He
 said, "Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so."

 "Very deep," said Arthur, "you should send that in to the Reader's
 Digest. They've got a page for people like you."

 "Drink up."

 "Why three pints all of a sudden?"

 "Muscle relaxant, you'll need it."

 "Muscle relaxant?"

 "Muscle relaxant."

I guess that was just too subtle.
It's a Ford Prefect.
It goes along with rabid_dingo's quote.

Just finished reading "The Salmon of Doubt", which is if nothing else, a bit of a posthumous elegy to Adams.

The man was brilliant, one of the greatest writers, its a pity that his most famous subject matter (humorous scifi) was deemed a specialty of nerds and the like, and thus never gave him the broader audience that he could have had.  He just had a brilliantly funny mind, with an eye for observing the absurdities of our species, and an expert way of putting it all down in print.  I would class him with Wodehouse, or very nearly, in mastery of English for comic purposes.  Stephen Fry would get a nod there, too, but then it all gets to be very incestuous sounding, as both Fry and Adams are very big Wodehouse fans and fans of each others work I believe.  And Cambridge footlights alumni I believe.

OK, OK, to get back to the subject...anyone notice in The Lion King, how the "villain" is the one who, upon taking over the lion kingdom, works to bring in the hyenas into their society as equals?  And then Simba returns to cast him down from power, and assumedly reinstitute apartheid?   :o
