Re: Chicken Fight
I know for a fact I would go insane if I didn't eat meat. I could never ever be even vegetarian, let alone vegan. >.> Just because my body is used to a certain amount of protein .... Plus, why would I give up a nice juicy, T-bone steak?! :laugh:

Just as he finishes swallowing it, and coils up contentedly in the sun, and small group of other snakes slither up and yell at him, "OMG! Murderer! I can't believe you did that to that poor defenseless mouse!" He stared at them in disbelief... "Mice have a right to live, too!" Geese.
:laugh: I love that! It's true. The major difference is that humans have other sources of food besides meat... We can choose to eat what we want. Whereas the snake cannot. The animal rights people that are in your face are JUST like that group of snakes, man. You can't eat that because WE think it's wrong! Yep.
And true - Humans wouldn't have lived very long if they hadn't hunted for their food. Again - There were a few winters when my dad was out of work and we couldn't afford a whole lot...So we lived on the deer we took. *shrug* To bad we didn't all grow up with rich mommies and daddies in the city... I noticed when I lived in San Francisco, that a lot of the vegan/animal hugger PETA people have never really seen the way "country folk" really live, and they've never experienced meat outisde the grocery store. :rolleyes1:
Re: Chicken Fight
I've considered quitting meat in different ways. One year, I said that I wasn't gonna eat pork anymore. Problem is, I like hamhocks, pork chops and bacon--ESPECIALLY BACON! I love bacon too much for me to just stop eating pork.
One year I said I would quit eating red meat. The same day I went to Wendy's and ate a double stack, LOL. These days, I don't eat too much beef or pork; not as much as I used to, at least. I eat lots of fish and chicken (the ones that survive the grinder, LOL). I still like beef and pork, I just really don't eat much of it. Fish and chicken is cheaper and a bit healthier, so it's what I go for. I eat a lot of Asian foods too, so the types of meat varies from dish to dish. :D:
