1. Today, I met a vegan. There are two possibilities here: 1. I met the only not-annoying vegan in existence or 2. All you vegan-hating meat eaters never met an actual vegan. Long story short: he was a nice guy.

    1. @omni "vegan-hating meat eaters" I do like the whiny accusations you feel the need to interject into everything you say

      1. @redenchilada I love how you feel like I'm talking to you. If you're not a vegan-hater, but just a meat eater, I am not even talking to you.

      2. @redenchilada don't forget red, I'm a vegan-eating mate heater!

    2. @omni It's difficult to be a vegan. Imagine a life without cheese. An impressive sacrifice.

      1. @kamikaze It's definitely an achievement to be a vegan and stay one. It would need quite some self-control.

        1. @omni i had some curiosity about becoming vegan, but it will have to wait untill i can pay for my own food

          1. @mushi I wish you the best of luck then, seeing as you wouldn't even be able to eat most meals for vegetarians, as they almost always contain milk or eggs. It won't be easy, that's for sure.

            1. @omni yeah, but it was so easy to leave meat behing that i'd like to try that more as a curiosity. but it will have to wait

              1. @mushi Oh, I see. Well, friendly tip from the vegan I met: you can generally even cook a lot with just water instead of oil or butter (oil is apparently unhealthy, and butter is often not completely vegan).

                1. @omni well, i will probably not remember that, but thanks anyway

                2. OmG, butter is often not completely vegan? But chicken is still vegan, isn't it?

        2. @omni Oh hey, my only female cousin started with that crap. I had a good laugh.

          1. @nerthos Shame of the family, is what she is.

        3. @omni More than self-control, it requires vigilance and research. Many basic cooking ingredients contain traces of dairy products.

    3. @thatonestocking Except that being a vegan doesn't kill anyone, and being a meat-eater means you're responsible for the death of countless animals as well. Your comparison is completely insane, and I hope you can see for yourself why.

      1. @omni Their lifes were given to them with the sole purpose of being eaten. It's not like you're murdering them in the wilds.

        Friday, 04-Jan-13 20:15:32 UTC from web
        1. @nerthos And I don't think creating life just to kill it is justifiable, just like, most likely, nobody here would justify bringing life to a human child to lock them up in a basement, forcing them to do exactly as you wish and abusing them because "you created this life".

          Friday, 04-Jan-13 20:18:13 UTC from MuSTArDroid
          1. @omni You could create a kid for the purpose of gathering spare organs, for example, and it wouldn't be wrong. And who said anything about "abusing" or "locking in a basement"? You guys always do the same, base all your arguments in atributing esoteric qualities to earthly things. An animal is just a complex piece of organic electronics and chemical reactions. It's not more wrong to raise an animal for a purpose than it is to use a complex AI.

      2. This is the perfect opportunity to quote Kyuubey in an actually relevant context, but I just don't care enough to transcribe his speech.

    4. @thatonestocking No, really?

    5. @thatonestocking If less people would eat meat, less meat would be produced and less animal life would be created to be slaughtered. That's basic economy. It makes no sense to create animal life and feed it if it won't make any money.

      1. @omni "I don't like meat, so nobody should eat it"
