The question "leg or breast" is ambivalent - does one prefer the breast/leg of... what? Women? Chicken?
what if the question refers to the self? E.g. a leg man is some kind of Buer demon thaat just rolls around on legs, a breast man is the same but brings more joy to the world

You know you can debone the legs (of chicken) and end up with a very VERY tasty piece of meat.

Then it's the breast of both worlds, I guess.

Baal no one wants to know about your boning, de or otherwise. Certainly no one is interested in how tasty your meat is.

Just came back from the zoo (is within walking distance), I'm against zoo's on principle, but what the heck, pete enjoyed it a lot and the three of us spent a worthwhile. Best money spent not in food in a long while.

I heard that zoos are supposed to protect animals who suffer from habitat loss, I could be wrong though

Depends a lot on the philosophy (and economic model!) of the zoo in question

There are many ethical zoos, and many zoos that will gracefully accept animals that have been liberated from excentric people. Im somewhat surprised they managed to stay afloat in your country.

Yeah the whole concept isnt great but the way we are fucking up everything else these zoos might become important safeholds of biodiversity.

Oh well, they are charging 2 dollars per entrance, kids up to 6 years enter free. Also they are a public as in government enterprise. On top of that the elephant, giraffe and other expensive upkeep animals have died and there are no plans to replace them thankfully.

 :( :( Ok so maybe not that afloat... Wouldn´t even be surprised if they starved or were shot before starving and sold as meat to elites.

They already are, various species have already been nearly wiped out and saved by zoo populations. That also leaves out the unquantifiable portion of people who care about the environment as a result of attending zoos as children.

I've always felt that, among civilization's many necessary evils, zoos are probably the single most pleasant.

I think if humans were endangered and robots or extraterrestrials made a zoo for us to preserve the species, I’d be fine with it so long as they take good care of us, think Blue Diamond’s zoo from Steven Universe, she made a human zoo to preserve humans since Pink wanted to do so

They died of old age and starvation yeah, by official accounts it was old age. I think they gave the lions the elephant meat back then. Yeah, all in all is kinda sad. The elephant habitat was perhaps half hectare (counting the feeding and refugee/vet area) and I might be overestimating it a lot. It was a single elephant but still... I consider a minimum for the elephant to be the size of at least half the whole thing. The zebra population is down from a couple of dozens to one, the metalbawskes, ah hem, I mean the only rhino is clearly too old as the single buffalo and both are about to meet the Emperor in the ethereal.

It was really depressing from a point of view but from the wonderful optics of a little guy it was all wonderful and marvelous. He was disappointed of the no elephant or giraffe deal, oh and that there were chimps instead of gorillas but all in all he had a great time.

I oppose to zoos because in our current times there's enough info about animals on the internet, and while the close up experience can't really be replaced, it can be humanized a lot better (I speak for older zoos in general and this zoo in currently in particular). This means zoos should be refugees of animals that can't live in the wild anymore (like rescued from dickheads who think is cool to have endangered species as pets) and they should be provided with ample, ample spaces and the most natural experience possible.

I agree with this, I think zoos should be prioritized as follows (Priorities in the same rank are applied equal weight)
Primary Objectives:
Conservation of species who can no longer live in the wild
Ensure that the provided habitats have ample survival needs, space and enrichment
Ensure proper veterinary care
     Secondary Objective
     Give information about the animals and habitats to those visiting the area
          Tertiary Objective
          Human Entertainment, to keep them engaged and hopefully prime them for Secondary Objective,
twinletwhich would in turn hopefully eventually get them into conservation work
((I feel like maybe the primaries should maybe be weighted differently rather than equal but am not sure which weighting of them would provide the most benefit to the non humans long term, not that I’m against humans, but we are of Least Concern))

Its a main reason I don't particularly like the DC National Zoo over most other zoos I've visited.  Even if the animals actually have the proper square footage they need, that zoo feels really small and... concrete.

Also pandas are overrated, do not @ me.

Finally hit 1300 Elo on Lichess! Now the goal is 1500.

And at the start of summer I was like 1100 or 1000 (don't remember). Anyone can improve at chess, especially if playing longer time controls (i.e not blitz or bullet).
