  1. it's from the movie, the dark crystal. thanks and what is all avatar all about? "hummer sucks!" or what was the name of the movie?
  2. Hi there, I was wondering if there are any vegans out there who still kind of "like" meat? I grew up with tasty meat meals and sometimes I would really like to eat something, just because it reminds me of my childhood etcetera. When I first became a vegetarian and later a vegan I thought that meat is just gross so I really understand that many of us just don't like meat at all!

  7. I couldn't do that! I love sweetened soymilk, especially vanilla flavor!
  8. So true! My dad had a heartattack and they told him to take betablockers but didn't say much about his diet!
  9. yeahh, that's right: germans love "sauerkraut und schweinshaxe" haha, that's kind of funny! btw: do you live in sweden? O_O
  10. Did you get the smileys? This one should definately become part of this forum: http://www.attilahildmann.com/veganforum/images/smiles/sport.gif Don't you think?
  11. Hi there, I've heard that some vegans feed their cats vegan catfood! Don't know what I should think about that... What do you think?
  12. Can you tell us a story or is this just what you heard from people?
  13. Install the quicktime-player and it will work! Why not buy a new pc - no advertising-contracts? I mean, you are the world champion, right?
  14. me too! I wasn't sick or injured in the last 5 years!
  15. With all due respect, that is easy for us to say when we arent the ones being sacrificed. And then of course there is the matter of degress. While it may arguably be more defensible to use animal testing for curing disease, animal testing so that Proctor and Gamble can maintain its market share in household detergents by coming up with a 17th "new scented" Tide "coldwater" is clearly less defensible. As is animal testing for cosmetics, etc,. etc. Testing taser guns on helpless, squeeling, terrified pigs is not my idea of progress, for example. As far as the "medical research" is concerned, a truly civilized society would be investing resources into finding alternatives to animal research- not taking healthy, terrified animals who have absolutely no choice in the matter and infecting them with painful, crippling, fatal diseases in the "hopes" of finding a cure that will work on humans. Animal experimentatiion is not as clear cut and necessary as the vivisection industry would have us believe. CrispyQ had said that she was at the hospital once and saw a picture of some rabbits in research with a caption reading "volunteeers." This is the kind of disrespectful and callous mentality that is prevalant in the vivisection industry. Talk about an unethical and misleading poster. NO, they were NOT volunteers. They were victims - voiceless, silenced, helpless victims - of a society that thinks it has the right to do as it pleases to animals. Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction: Ask vivisectors why they experiment on animals and they say because the animals are like us. Ask them why it is morally okay to experiment on animals and they say because the animals are not like us. - Professor Charles Magel. Instead of giving into our speciest instincts of being in favour of testing that advances the well-being of humans, let us approach the vivisection industry with a more critical and suspicious perspective rather than taking for granted the assumption that animal testing is the only way. I totally agree compash! The thing is that most of the experiments done on animals are useless. Another thing is that the same experiments are done by many different companies because they don't want to show the results to another company: company A tests drugs on 100 cats and don't want to show the results to company B which is why they torture 100 cats again...that's capitalism... Another point is that the cosmetic industry makes the most of the animal experimentation and now you would say: "hey dude it's forbidden" but the border isn't very clear and most of the companies that do animal research for the medical industry do it also for the cosmetic industry - they test several chemicals and nobody knows what is done with them in the later product. They could be used in a skincream or in a medicament...there is no control - even the vetenarians often have no access to the animals and the data is top secret - like in the covance research lab: www.planet-of-covance.com
  16. There is a cure for aids: use a condom! And if you think that animal research is justified I don't really understand why you are registered on a vegan/animal-rights forum? Maybe there is one animal experiment in a thousand that could give human species some kind of progress but I don't think it would be justified - if you are this animal you wouldn't say it is justified... PeTA isn't extreme, they just say what's true! We don't need circusses, dog shows, horse backriding, slaughterhouses etcetera...
  17. Dunno but I found this: http://www.kfccruelty.com/andydick.asp Is he really a vegan? That would be so cool!
  18. Yep, and the monk parakeets does cause some damage to fruit orchards in Florida. So in that state some people would like to label the parakeet "invasive" (a term for non-native species that cause environmental, health or agricultural harm). As it is, the fruit the parakeets are eating is not a native species. Here is a photo from last week's protest at the office building of the power company that is killing these birds. http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d52/veganism/journal/invasive.jpg Woodson is the Chair and CEO for United Illuminating, his company is capturing monk parakeets that nest on utility poles and having them killed by the USDA. Hi Daniel, I am just curious: is that you on your avatar?
  19. I totally agree! The CCF just needs arguments against PeTA - pretty lame... People should start to think!
  20. yeah, what's even lamer are these militant edge kids that go to shows and beat down anyone they see holding a beer or a cigarette. Is that really true?
  21. come on, wouldn't you? and another point: what if she had to take insulin before she became an animal rights activist?
  22. I think the first one looks better...
