so I'll just wait and read the story when timothy dupes it later this week
that's how the metamod works.
not the poster you're replying to, but i felt the need to throw down my couple cents. i tried vegetarian/vegan for quite a while, but my body simply could not thrive. no matter how much "good" veg protein i got (and i'm a bit of a crazy about my diet...), no matter how much i wanted to save the animals, i just couldn't stay healthy. i can't speak for all humans, but from what i can tell from my own biology, i'm an omnivore - i have the teeth and digestive system of one. i require nutrients from both plant and animal sources. i cannot perform up to my full potential without animal products.
once i'd realized that, it came down to personal ethics. i refuse to buy meat (or most anything, really) from grocery stores. i'm lucky enough to live somewhere with lots of farms and markets; i speak with the farmers about the creatures they raise for slaughter, about how they're cared for, housed, and fed. there are proper ways to do these things, to raise livestock humanely and feed it a species-appropriate diet - so it can be healthy enough to live well and also be properly nourishing to those who consume it.
and to the poster you were replying to, you've got a noble goal there. i just recently took up hunting and would love to be able to bag enough wild game to greatly reduce or eliminate my dependence on farms altogether. until then, i'll choose the friendly local farmers.
check out black soldier flies. they can be farmed in nifty little bins by pretty much anyone. the larvae will eat damn near anything (plant/animal based food waste and excrement) and leave behind nothing but fertilizer and fat larvae, which make nutritious feed for aquaponic setups or chickens. the adults live only a couple days; they exist only to mate, and do not bite or sting. they are not known to be a vector for any human pathogens, and they generally buzz off to die once they're done mating.
don't worry; the wealthy and influential immortals will keep the population down with breeding controls, eugenics, famine, drought, and war. oh, and of course restrictions on who may access anti-aging tech/pharma.
My excessive coffee drinking is a symptom of my shitty lifestyle.
My excessive coffee drinking is the cause of my awesome lifestyle. You're doing something wrong.
pigs and chickens are omnivores. anyone trying to sell you vegetarian-fed eggs/chicken is merely aiming at the market that thinks that vegetarian-fed somehow means better. chickens love to eat bugs, rodents, and lizards. a chicken raised strictly on grain is nutrient-deficient and probably shouldn't be eaten.
my guess is it's a spook. with all the attention that leaks are getting right now, it seems totally plausible for some paid contractor to draw up some "classified documents" about snowden's child-trafficking ring or assange's cannibal cookbook, stick 'em on dropbox, and plant a horseshit story like this on a tech blog. then you just eat some popcorn and wait for the next security breach. you don't even have to get your hands dirty cracking into anything yourself.
take into consideration what you could be learning from involving yourself with that community. i've learned many things from assholes; you don't have to agree with their methods, and you certainly don't have to let words from a stranger on the internet mean anything to you. you can choose to get over the delivery and focus on the message.
here's some mostly-on-topic george carlin on speaking directly, and the lack of it in modern america. nsfw, probably, because george carlin.
your turn for a citation. either point out to us where percy schmeiser ever admits to planting the monsanto seed, or shut the fuck up. all you've done this whole thread is try to prop up the multi-billion-dollar corporation, and you've provided no evidence. every single article i can find on percy schmeiser says that he's never admitted to planting monsanto seed, and he's defeated them in court more than once. they tried to make him sign a gag order before they'd pay to clean up his fields that their seed contaminated, and when he sued them instead, they paid up with no stipulations. so...citations?
By the way, the government contends the Fourth-Amendment-Free Zone stretches 100 miles inland from the nation’s actual border."

when i worked hp printer support, it was generally people with a hub connected to a cable/dsl modem and sharing the connection to all the devices. this was around 2006 and a number of providers would supply separate ip addresses to each machine connected to the hub in this way. whenever troubleshooting setups, if i noticed a publicly addressable ip on a printer, i'd send it a page just to demonstrate to the customer why they needed a router instead of a hub. most of them would run out to best buy and call back an hour later to set it up properly.
i was told by a guy who votes republican that he wants to eat a baby. your move, anecdote-guy!
Timothy McVeigh took out 168 people with a fertilizer bomb, in the largest act of terrorism in the U.S. prior to 9/11. The largest school massacre in the U.S. was the Bath school disaster of 1927, another bombing. So the largest school massacre and the two largest acts of terrorism in the U.S. were all committed without a single gun death. The last seven incidents of crazed people killing school children in China have all involved knives, cleavers, hammers. Humans are violent, fucked up animals and we absolutely do not need guns to kill other humans.
