In Norway we call it Smalahove
Animals, before they are slaughtered, are rendered all but dead. They are usually shocked, no not through the ass, with a couple hundred thousand volts. After they`re rendered insensible(which is required BY LAW), they have their blood drained from their body. They feel 0 pain and it`s extremely fast. By law, you actually have to have a certified USDA inspector watch you slaughter an animal that`s going to go on for sale.(Yes, even if you slaughter two or three cow).
I`ll assume you grew up in the city, so your ignorance on the subject is forgiven.
I`ve been in grocery stores from Seattle to New York City and have seen chicken feet in more than half of them. I`ve never seen duck`s heads outside of Oriental stores though.
I may as well give my 2 cents on the vegetarian debate... I`m certainly not a vegetarian, but I do think that if you are going to eat meat you should at least be able to watch footage of what you are supporting. If you are fine with the current regulations and rules regarding treatment of meat animals, then by all means, eat meat. As you can probably guess by now, I`m uncomfortable with the way chickens are currently treated. I only buy free-range chicken and don`t eat chicken at fast-food places.
The preachers are just trying to eliminate the "out-of-sight, out-of-mind" variable.
... I`m not turned off by this. Its just I see little use in eating the head. I mean, there can`t be much meat there.
Same goes for the chicken feet.
I have nothing against vegetarians, but not eating meat is something I could never respect them for.
I was talking about the people who ask a veg*n for advice. Stop getting all preachy at me.
The one thing that bothers me about many vegetarians is their assumption that everyone else, but them, is wrong. It`s the same reason I don`t like preachy religious people. If you don`t eat meat, I don`t care, but don`t try to get me to change by telling me to watch some video or look at some website. I don`t need to change. You don`t need to change. We`re all fine.
Now, if you want to tell me to buy free range chickens or buy locally raised and slaughtered beef and pork, I`ll listen.
Yeah I feel incredibly awkward talking about why Im a vegetarian, and I dont want people to think I want them to be.
Oh and I usually just say, watch Free Me by Goldfinger.Link-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zVL9lDW7...(Probably doesnt work, no idea how to do links XD)
Agreed, though it`s funny how many omnis are always there, front and center, preaching about how "good" flesh is when they hear there`s a veg*n nearby. Note: I said many, not all.
If they ask, just let them watch Earthlings or read The China Study and let them work it out themselves.
Wat. Did that confuse anyone else nearly as much as it confused me? O_o
...You know you have to cook the meat first right? That usually solves the blood problem :)
Dunno about the heads though...
Stop eating anything with a face! You will feel different, you know without all the hormones and steroids in your body! And yes I used to eat meat about 10 years ago and YES it was good but eating bloody flesh didn`t appeal to me anymore.
Duck face * shudders*
