You Are What You Eat

Part Two of original blog posted Jan 16th 2010 in the event blog content is changed later.
See link for part one
http://www2.ljworld.com/weblogs/marip...

In Switzerland, China, Vietnam, Peru and Argentina cat is still on the menu. However there is growing opposition, especially in China, where there have been protests against the eating of both cats and dogs. In what would be China’s first law against animal abuse, anyone caught eating cat or dog meat would face a fine of as much as 5,000 yuan (£450) and up to 15 days in jail. Organizations involved in the sale of either meat could be fined between 10,000 and 500,000 yuan. A draft law is expected to be sent to parliament, the National People’s Congress, in April, according to state media.

How many people in Kansas eat baby pigs, lambs and calves and consider it to be a delicacy? So, the question is still out there, what is it that determines what you eat?

You Are What You Eat

Here is the original blog. Since she has pulled it into drafts, we thought it best to post it here before the blog changes to something non recognizable to the comment thread. Since the blog exceeds LJW comment character length, this will require two comments.

You Are What You Eat

In an interesting coincidence we were having a discussion in class about why people eat what they do and why some people and cultures shun certain things. In the case of the traditional Jewish person it is a matter of religious observation. In other cases it may be a matter of squeamishness that is learned.

In the case of meat, what is acceptable? If you were raised on a farm, are you less likely to be a vegan than if you were raised in the city? How many of us have any concept of what happens to an animal between conception and the time it ends up on the dinner plate? If you visited an animal farm or an abattoir what are the chances that you would continue to eat meat?

Those who hunt and dress the kill are quite aware of how bloody and messy it is to prepare meat for the table. Yet they continue to do it. They are not disturbed by cutting an animal open and removing it’s internal organs? Why”

In class there was no concessions but only argument. Two groups, each horrified by the other, each knowing that they were not being properly understood by the other.

When I got home and read the London Times I found out about this man. Same subject we were discussing in class.

Beppe Bigazzi, 77, is a food writer and commentator on Prova del Cuoco which is broadcast on the RAI in Italy. He has been suspended for recommending cat stew to his viewers. He suggested that it is best served as a casserole adding “I’ve eaten it myself and it is a lot better than other animals. Better than chicken, rabbit or pigeon.“

The elderly man seemed to be referring back to his youth during the terrible days of World War Two when life for civilians in Europe was miserable and they did what they had to do to survive. He added: “Mind you, I wasn’t joking all that much. In the 1930s and 1940s, when I was a boy, people certainly did eat cat in the countryside around Arezzo. I saw if often. But you can’t judge what happened seventy years ago. “ He said he was “being put on trial. I did not instigate anyone to do anything, nor did I give out any particular recipe. I was merely describing an old-fashioned custom.”

However, today’s world is different and now what he is suggesting is illegal thanks to the campaigns of animal rights workers.

Marion - Disappeareded Blog- Taps Over, Time for the After Party!

LadyJ,
The answer to your question is The Moment of Truth - Fox's new show. 1455 comments including mine with a comparison of how many comments are left in regards to people being banned.
For example where a comment says they have reached 400 comments, I count only 200 now. The thread load incredibly fast now in comparison to back then, although there are still approximately 1032 remaining. Only a couple of seconds.

Notable is jonas contribution when the thread reached 1000 comments:

Jubilant Posters Celebrate Milestone
AP reporting

Throngs of virtual celebrants crowded the rows of commentary columns in gleeful celebration of their pet thread passing the milestone 1000 posts. Long in the works, the thread, strangely on the topic of a silly Fox network game-show, finally broke quadruple digits on the early morning of March 13th, with credit going to Mariann, who came in for the steal from Ronda, who apparently was busy doing less productive things, such as sleeping. “It's such a great moment!” netizen Bearded-Gnome exclaimed with a trace of tears in his eyes. “It looked about to die there for a moment or two, but faithful posters hunkered down and brought it home. I never lost faith.”
Of interest was the lack of late assistance from the oft-omni present Marion. “Nick Danger/ Marion is our resident spammer,” posters The Original Bob and Snap-Crackle-No-Pop were quoted as saying (numerous times). “While he was active at the beginning of this quest, its strange for us to be so successful with such minimal assistance there at the end.” Marion, strangely, was unavailable for comment.
But some remain skeptical, such as dour poster Kansas778. “Sure, it's impressive, but we should all remember that this is the nominal post rate. When we factor in post inflation and apply our post-deflater, I think that we'll find the real-post level to still be less than some of the post counts during the Reagan Administration.” Other voices also called for restraint. “These posts aren't properly backed by anything,” poster Mkh was quoted as saying. “You see, this is all the fault of the Federal Reserve and their issuance of fiat posts, which are utterly value-less. We're all happy now, but it's only a matter of time before we go into severe post-recession and eventually a grinding post-depression like we've never seen before. Without Ron Paul, we'll probably suffer a severe world-wide post-famine before the end of this decade.”
Other posters were more optimistic. Reticent-irreverent was quoted as saying “Dude, chill out.”
All in all, it was a great day in posting history, but the after-effects are still in question as more information comes in.

invictus, are you saying that only White folk were involved in creating “Western culture”?

Why I didn't catch on who you are before is beyond me. Oct. 1 sign up, and already 59 posts? I should have known.

Good catch.

Do you think texting while driving should be outlawed?

TOB,
Just noting our computers picked that you verified that 'ting' in your earlier comment twice before posting.

TOB-Sex = okay, just don't communicate about it.
How about groans 'n' moans Bob?

Do you have any tattoos that you regret getting?

spacehog (Anonymous) says…
Think twice. When I was a 21 I got my ear pierced. That was quite a statement. However, I rarely wear it anymore so know one knows about it.

Oh yes we do. PM's and emails went all around about it just after you signed up dylan boy.

Millionth poster

Stat_Guys would mention that Marion has been humping his bum to increase his rating from his previous place on the list. As mentioned on the blog it takes a lot more time and posting differences to alter the status of a long term user than it does a newer one.

Marion, in about two months has increased his words per day from 7.31 to 9.31. Increase = 2.

We noticed Multidisciplinary had also become more talkative. She joined not quite a year later. To compare, she only raised the word count= .1, with a interim .03 decrease. Note, that is 'point 1' not 1.

Ronda has also increased her standing just slightly.
She and Bozo have switched places, neck and neck.
However, let it be known, that someone else holds the lead for top place. We have not run the stats on everyone, but we have run some. And Marion has a lot of posting to do before he can begin to catch up with the person that holds the lead for the few that we ran, they are far out in front and have been holding steady. We might ad, they are well behaved for the most part and show no signs of future disappearededness.

Many people up there on the list have been disappeareded so many of you moved up a few places.
And some of you thought you would never see the top 10 or twenty.
