    I'm pretty sure this isn't really that new. And this doesn't make PETA right, it makes the FDA right for not importing UK beef and heavily testing the US cattle stock.

    PETA doesn't discourage eating meat due to possible contamination, they discourage eating meat because cows are so cute and cuddley

    I am a member of PETA (People Eating Tasty Animals) and I can say that this is simply not true

    Besides, if you live anywhere near a farm where cattle are raised, you know that cows are not cute and cuddly. I might describe them as stinky and ill-tempered, but certainly not cute and cuddly.

    I'm with ya on this one....I dated a girl that lived on a cattle farm....cute...NO, cuddly....I think not....and the smells coming from the pasture....let's just say we headed to the city for a night once in a while....I'll leave it at that. However, perfectly butchered steaks rock !

    yes... this is new

    reference:
    "they also found that when a prion jumps species, it produces a new kind of prion. "This is worrisome," says Claudio Soto, who led the research, published in Cell. "The universe of possible prions could be much larger than we thought.""

    did you hear the wooshing sound as the joke went right over your head?

    Honestly, I think my mom still subscribes to PETA's magazine and whenever she goes "do you know what they do to chickens?!" I go "No, but it tastes darn good!!!"

    I got it, was just taking the opportunity to use a joke of my own

    PETA has a magazine? Doesn't that mean the murder of innocent trees and the use of inks that were tested on fuzzy bunnies?

    and what would be wrong with that?


    peta discourages any abuse of animals, including killing them for our own selfish needs; mainly on the basis that they are living creatures that share this planet with us, and with us being rational, self-aware creatures we have the ability and foresight to navigate around carnivorism if we so wish.
    i'll admit, i'm a meat eater, though i wish i had the willpower to be a vegetarian.

    I would agree with you in theory, it's PETA's methods of protest and extremist tone they sometimes take that yanks my chain.

    agreed. i also don't get as emotionally attached as some of the real intense members of peta and other similar groups. part of me understands the animal nature of the biology, and how much of an abberation we are - but seeing that we are in the situation we're in, and that we can get along without meat consumption, it just seems a bit archaic.

    of course peta isn't as extreme as the e.l.f., but i'm sure there is some crossover between some of the more extreme peta members.

    i kind of liken it to being christian. there are plenty of you guys that want to do right, live by the code and all, and are well meaning and completely pleasant to be around. and then there are a few extremist groups that poop all over the whole thing and ruin it for every body. does that mean you should abhor christianity? no, you just have to live by your moral ideal and try not to let the idiots tarnish your gig.
