if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

just be grateful someone isnt roasting you and putting you on a plate this year, ok?  

and btw, you could have at least went to the trouble of finding a carrot pic instead of grass.  that's not very funny.

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

Really? Gee, kind of like how I find little humor in the sanctimonious, nauseatingly repetitive, holier than thou comments you feel justified assaulting us with ad nauseum. Believe it or not, we're capable of determining levels of offensiveness and abject stupidity without having it thrust in our face continuously. The article was posted to the 'bizarre' category, which in and of itself means someone found it disturbing, for obvious reasons. Like your response. Ironic, hey?  You accuse us of being uptight, perhaps you should take your own advise and lighten up. One can be admired for their beliefs, but just as easily reviled for pushing them beyond reasonable limits.

DSchwartz,

If that little link was meant to change my views on eating animals you are going to be sadly mistaken.

First of all a good percentage of all statistics are made up (by people like you) in the first place to try and sway peoples views around to your way of thinking.And i dont care that the stats came from a "reliable" source.They are bent and manipulated to show what the author wants them to say.

Secondly .I don't care....................................How do you like them apples ??

And please dont start with the "If you had to kill them you wouldn't eat them" speech Beceause having been a slaughterman I have killed enough animals to feed every visitor to this forum (Not that is is a good thing to boast about).

In short ......................SHUT UP !!

i thought i posted a comment in a very lighthearted manner after your insulting taunt at my way of life.  then, i chose not to reply at all, i just posted a link with some interesting facts about meat eating.  if anyone needs to lighten up, its you guys.  

i find it ironic that meat eaters are so cruel to vegetarians and then get so offended when they try to point out why meat eating is bad for you.  i can take a jab, why can't you?  

and honestly, i could give a rat's ass what you choose to eat.  be a barbarian, its your god given right- or is that just propaganda written by a meat eater to justify your way of life, Crosis?




and speaking of lightening up.... Magikman, when i said it wasn't very funny, i meant that it lacked humor due to grass being inedible.  i wasn't being 'sanctimonious' and all those other fancy words you grubbed up from your vocabulary to insult me with ;)

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?
