I didn't know the Shepherd did things in the Atlantic, I thought it usually habitated the Indian and Pacific Ocean. To be honest I didn't think they were still around at all, though I did assume they'd have been replaced my lesser famous activists of similar goals and maybe even means.

Is Aldi the German store? I'm highly biased against them (German stores) since back when my brother worked at Lidl. Horrible businesses. I avoid them whenever I can.

PETA is more annoying anyways.

Did you know that cats that have mysteriously disappeared from home can come back after a few months without warning?

Possibly more annoying, but when it comes to vigilante activism the shepherds are up there.
Apparently they got curtailed quite hard back in 2016 though.

Also weren't PETA the ones found to be 'rescuing' dogs from poor living conditions and then immediately putting them down?

Dogs, cats, everything. Including "rescuing" from the porches and yards of people who weren't treating them poorly. 98% average kill rate across all PETA-operated shelters.

Because, as per PETA ethos, it's morally better to put an animal down than to allow it to live a life of "slavery" as someone's pet.

The 'E' in their title shares no relationship with Ethics as we know it.

PETA is just team plasma, except less ethical, and more comical

"People" for "Ethical" "Treatment" of "Animals".

The public (i.e people) does not like PETA that much.
What they are doing is not ethical at all.
They mostly euthanize animals instead of treating them.
They also protest against players being able to abuse animals in a video game (not real animals and just some data).

The only words that are true are "for" and "of".

If I had to describe myself, it'd be a anthrocentric environmentalist; We should keep the world safe and abundant so that we don't fuckin' die. (Personally, I'm of the opinion we should mass-exodus into space and leave Earth to the Sentinelese, the Amish, and nature.)

Greenpeace, PETA, Sea Shepherd, they're all hypocrites who either directly harm who they claim to protect (PETA, as above) or indirectly harm it by turning public opinion against their cause by being too extremist and hurting people.

Not fuckin' dying is indeed a noble goal. Mass exodus seems prohibitively expensive though, unless we start up something more efficient than rockets for taking people the first step, to orbit.

Lidl is  shitty place who treats it's employees like shit and also treats it's customers like shit. It's the capital of "this is highly unethical to do but it's not technically illegal so we're gonna do it" in grocery stores. Buying from Lidl is like travelling with Ryan Air.

Weird, my experience has been the opposite. The folk that work there are always friendly and ask how you're doing etc, the food they sell is higher quality than the other shops around, 2nd highest pay of any supermarket in UK (I think Aldi edges them out but imo Aldi is 'faster paced' than Lidl, the people I know there like the work environment etc.

Though I will admit their two large baguettes for 1 offer is encouraging my bread addiction to get out of hand.

.....my experience has also been the opposite, even down to what they offer for pay. I almost applied to an Aldi's because of the really good pay scale they offered in my area. The employees there are generally just as nice to me as any other grocery store. The LIDL's bakery often offers BOGO deals on fresh muffins which I end up buying for my co-workers every other Friday.

I hadn't heard of any like, Wal-Mart level employee chicanery with them, have they been recently outed or something? To be fair I have noticed a significant regional different in ALL grocery stores having moved from NJ to VA. All the grocery stores in VA are of higher quality in every respect.

I'm genuinely interested in your apparently horrid grocing experience there, scriver. Do tell.
