Makes perfect sense, nothing to see here people.

This thread is fucking bizarre. Imagine making killing animals a part of your identity. Boomer brain.


This article up on NYT. Paywall but probably worth it for the opening alone.

"See the True Cost of Your
Cheap Chicken
Enter a chicken farm and see how your cheap dinner strips
the dignity of both the chicken and the farmer."

I am currently in the middle of eating chicken nuggets so I can't watch this right now.

What a find. Ghoulish delight, like a mosquito trapped in amber. Perfectly preserved 2010, now refined into the usual vegan jokes and bacon memes.

As usual, be more picky about where you buy your meats, etc. from. But also, not all "organic" farms are cut from the same cloth: https://www.cornucopia.org/scorecards/ (the section on eggs alone is pretty revealing of what some farm birds go through).

Also check out SHARK on youtube for calling out of some seriously deranged animal abusers.

It's funny to me that the one self-avowed peta member who responded seemed completely unruffled.

shifty's "If having a vegetarian wife means an awesome model that walks around naked all day I think I could make a sacrifice" really does say it all for this thread.

lmao

I wonder how many of the posters here idolize the character Ron Swanson.

it's amazing how toxic and edgy the internet was before social media.

i still prefer it. the toxicity was harmless fun and mostly people acting in characters. a sort of extended RPG or MUD experience, bleeding over from IRC.

social media and the merging of 'IRL' with the web was supposed to make people more accountable for their views and behaviour. what we got, instead, is a generation of far-right fascists, incel terrorists, and conspiracy-pumped housewives. sad!

these 'shocking' threads are quaint in comparison.

*mostly harmless, still had issues with online stalkers and stuff.

Man, MUDs. I both miss those, and don't. What an incredible time sink. I could totally play a new Zork, entirely text-based. Just a single player game to enjoy without having your account penalized because you queued to many commands to grind a skill that's intentionally been made grindy to grind.
