I watched the trailer; it wasn't educational - it was an emotional tirade, a real tear-jerker if you hadn't grown up on a farm to know how pea-brain cows and chickens are.

And as far as hurling perjoratives, I guess you haven't read our Bored General. ;-)

tngirl - FIREd with meat on the table

I believe animals have souls, but I still eat them. Animals eat animals, and humans are definitely animals, primates to be exact, very closely related to Chimpanzees, and we've all seen Jane Goodall's videos of her Gombe Stream males going hunting for Colubus and young gazelles. It's just who we are.

Now when I kill an animal I just try and have a really good reason, whereas before I'd do it just because they were a nuisance. - Art
