Probably not. The religious restriction do not refer to bodyparts but species. Lab grown steaks will not be of any particular bodypart, but they will geneticaly be of a certain species.

Not so sure. The religious restriction of Hindu, yeah, you could be right. But Muslims don't not eat pork because it is of the species pig, they don't eat pork because the animal it comes from eats, and/or rolls around in it's own feces. It's simple. Any animal that eats it's own shit or rolls in it is 'halouf'. Lab grown bacon doesn't eat it's own shit, so it might actually be okay.

Now. lets be honest about one thing here: Yoink kind of has a point. One that I dont agree with, but its internay consistent. Milk industry and meat industry are linked because cows need regular pregnancies to keep making milk.  This doesnt mean that we shouldn't drink milk or est meat, but doesnt make it less real

If y'all aren't aware of how the dairy industry works that is perfectly understandable, as I said in my previous post I was similarly unaware myself until not so long ago - I thought veganism was kinda silly, that for a cow to be a milker was probably no worse than a dreary desk job by human standards. As far as I was aware, milk was to cows as eggs are to chickens - the stuff's got to come out anyway, so why shouldn't a  human consume and enjoy it?

Turns out that is not the case at all. The truth of the matter is rather distasteful and I shan't go into details here (anyone who cares enough to be interested could surely find such facts with ease using the search engine of their choosing), but suffice to say if I hadn't quit my high school's agriculture classes at the earliest opportunity - before we were initiated into the dark arts of the dairy department - I imagine I would have jumped straight to veganism long before I even stopped eating meat in this timeline. :P


In other WTF news, last night I slept at a friend's place and one of the cats there chose to sleep on my legs. I had a series of very intense, dramatic dreams... this tends to happen whenever cats sleep next to me. It is very strange. Unfortunately I remembered even less of the dream(s) in question this time, thoug.

Not sure why. I was lightly teasing Yoink, and also bacon wrapped steak is delicious. And so is whole milk. I can drink a gallon of milk in two days.

Whole milk is, indeed, the business.

I'll explain a little further:  This isn't some moral issue with hand-milking cows.  There's a lot of rather gruesome damage that sometimes occurs from industrial milking.  I get the impression that it's avoidable, and I'd like to believe most cruelty-free farms avoid overmilking and avoid the damaging practices.

I still drink milk though, in fact I'd kinda put all this out of my mind...  I still eat meat occasionally, so it's especially hard to imagine cutting out dairy.  What I ought to do is buy local, there's a farm nearby that I'm pretty sure wouldn't do anything like this.  I could find out, and be okay.  But I don't drink much milk, mostly eat cheap cheese, so it'd only help a little.

At least I can buy free-range eggs (but it's restrictive to avoid consuming industrial chicken meat).  It's all pretty frustrating...  I kinda hated the protagonist in Silent Running for being a food snob instead of just a preservationist.  Everyone was vegan in that movie, he just wanted veggies instead of cruelty-free paste lol.  I don't care about eating animals, or their population levels, I just hate that we force animals to live in truly nightmarish conditions.  They'd absolutely be better off dead.  Yet I often support factory farms by buying cheap.

Not sure why. I was lightly teasing Yoink, and also bacon wrapped steak is delicious. And so is whole milk. I can drink a gallon of milk in two days.
Heh I could do that as a kid, now it takes me about a week to drink a half gallon.  Probably since I treat it like a snack instead of a regular meal-item.

Also the window guy came back into my apartment unscheduled but I DGaF anymore, he saw some mess, whatever.
