    The bolt to the head comes after a life of intensive battery farming conditions.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Cod stocks are recovering apparently. Plus, it takes just a little while longer for whale stocks to recover ...

    Not wanting to eat insects is not "prissy". Fair play to you if its something you enjoy, but saying someone not wanting to eat this are prissy is a bit unfair.

    That actually looks like it would be delicious. Stop being so prissy!

    I'll eat most things (sea cucumber (sometimes referred to as sea slug) is delicious, by the way! So are chicken feet and (especially) pig feet. But not kangaroo sausages - you're better off getting a kangaroo joint to roast), but I draw the line at spiders. I will not eat a spider. No sir. Nope. Doesn't matter how you cook it. I'm not interested.

    I'd prefer not to eat a cockroach... I think. I could do it, though... again, I think. But not a spider.

    In Taiwan there's a dish called "stinky tofu", which is sold by street vendors. Visitors often confuse the aroma they've just passed through as coming from an open sewer. The taste is... extremely strong. Possibly resembling what I imagine rancid diarrhea to taste like. And you can choose normal or spicy.

    I don't like it at all. I try to eat it at least once a month, so I'll get used to the taste, and hopefully love it one day. :D I don't like not liking foods!

    I was extremely jealous of people in the UK a couple of months ago, as horse is absolutely without a doubt my favourite meat. :chatty:

    One solution is to avoid cheap shitty meat. People get upset about intensive farming practices, yet continue shovelling shit meat down their faces.

    Yep, but whales are extremely conservatively fished next to almost everything else in the sea. Surely it's better to take only enough to not endanger the population from all species, if you like including whales?

    Humane-er, for the most part, sure. Or at least there are better options available if you care.

    The big issue I have is that there's no better way to do it - it's not like you can really improve the process like you can with regular farmed meats.

    Whales aren't quite as endangered today as they used to be, but that's mainly because whaling has been banned on almost the entire world.

    I'm quite a fussy eater, and particularly don't really like seafood at all. Tried virtually everything, and mostly it does nothing for me. Some I actively dislike (salmon, tinned fish), others I can tolerate but choose to eat other stuff. I know I'm missing out though. Some textures also bother me, that'll be the slightly autistic side that everyone has manifesting itself - compacted mince a real problem, so no burgers for me!

    I would struggle in some places. :-/ I am aware that this makes me a bit of a tit.

    I don't know how they do it in Britain, but in Germany for example they suffocate pigs in a CO2 bath. And suffocation is one of the most cruel killing methods of all.

    Nope, nope, nope. First two are endangered, the third is a little close to cannibalism (I'm aware that this is a touch hypocritical).

    Is a lobster not magnificent? A salmon? An ostrich?

    Yep, so it's fine to take from sustainable population. I would absolutely not eat whale if I was encouraging hunting which might lead to extinction.

    Blimey. Over here it's usually electrocution (I believe), which is pretty instant.

    When you get down to brass tacks then you could call anything magnificent if you wanted to, even the humble carrot.

    What about the fact that whales can't really be killed humanely? It would really really bother me that an animal suffered horribly just so I could have a meal.

    Whales are possibly the most amazing creatures on earth. Really don't know why anyone would want to eat one just because they might be tasty.

    Because it's *really* tasty. If someone put a good cut on a plate in front of me it'd be a hell of an ethical test to resist.

    Yeah there's a sociopath somewhere in my nature. But it doesn't mean I can't look at cod fishing and whale fishing and recognise one risks driving a species to extinction and yet all the Greenpeace protesting is about the other one.

    Would anyone here not try horse meat? Not endangered, but they top the list for a lot of people as far as magnificent creatures go.

    This is industrial meat production pretty much all over the world. Whaling seems humanist in comparison imo.
