    too much for so little space
  1. There are also historical studies that suggest cannibalism was common among prehistoric people. In so many aspects we moved away from our ancenstors, we no longer live in caves, we no longer hunt for survival and barely anyone would suggest to live in caves because our ancestors did it. But why do people insist on eating meat because our ancestors did so? We no longer need to eat it, and I guess people insist on eating meat simply because they're used to it and think it's tasty.
  2. Exactly. Of course, like all other living forms, they react to their enviroment but they have no central nervous system. And I might add that a plant-based diet kills less plants - someone who eats meat and plants kills more plants since the animals they eat are fed with plants.
  3. It really, really depends. Before I went full vegetarian, then vegan, I ate fish because factory farming was and is my main concern. Many species of fish are endangered due to being overfished, and aquaculture is no alternative either since it demands a lot of water, fish are fed antibiotics as well (especially shrimps) and it can lead to endangerment of those fish who are fed the farmed fishes. I think the only more or less ethical way to eat fish is either to fish yourself or to specifically look for fish with a MSC-label. I am not into that topic, but there are lists online and even smartph
  4. Actually, in some parts of the world consumption of meat has always been criticised, many practising Hindus don't eat meat for religious reasons. Also some philosophers discussed the issues regarding eating animals. There just has been a recent increase in discussions. Also I don't know how many vegetarians/vegans you know, many of my friends and co-students follow such a diet and are most definitely not bitter.
  5. But isn't there a difference between the death of a carrot and the death of an animal? Plants aren't sentient. And I might add that if a death isn't necessary, does it make it a justified death? The examples of cannibalism in extreme situations are something entirely different than deciding to eat animals just for the taste. I myself wonder if eating animals for survival is not necessary, does that make it justifiable to cage and kill them? And furthermore, if we want to eat them, does it have to be under such conditions? If people ate less meat and bought local, we wouldn't enter the issue
  6. Teeth? All mammals have teeth, does that mean that horses or cows are carnivores?
  7. Actually more people could be fed if the land is used for agriculture instead of farming animals. A steak demands a lot more resources than a veggie stir fry, and the rain forest is being logged down for kettle. Either the cows are fed with large amounts of food that is edible to humans, too, or they need large fields of grassland. The enormous demand of meat raise prices for corn and grains to feed the livestock, which are a basic staple in the diet of many people in developing countries who no longer can afford their food anymore. A lot could be done by eating less meat. But of course, facto
  8. Somewhat relevant and I enjoyed reading that: http://logs.omegle.com/e9736e According to this bloke, anyone living in their shit has to be slaughtered.
  9. My classes for this semester are awesome :3 And I have Tuesdays off.
  10. I known this is a controversial topic, so I wish everyone to stay civil in this debate. Opponents of meat consumption argue that the production of meat and other animal products has a negative environmental impact, that modern factory farming is very cruel and that taste is not a legitimation to cage and/or kill animals. Supporters argue that it is tasty, that it is part of their culture and that vegetarianism/veganism may come with malnourishment. I don't add points like "we are on top of the food chain" since we buy in supermarkets in most of the cases and thus are not participating
  11. Here is another cool bar that I found there.....die Bar mit dem Fluss im Tresen (lots of cool jamsessions going on there)

  12. Ow fuck.....just saw you had your birthday not so long ago, well best wishes to you even if it's a bit late. Hope everything is fine in Berlin, have you already been to the Tacheles??

  13. I didn't take my TV to my new place. Don't miss it at all.
  14. Finally, I have internet at my new place. Telephon isn't fixed yet, argh.
