I just did a little quick and dirty math.... looks like I eat something close to 18kilos of herring per year. I eat about that much again in larger fish.

Maybe I'm missing something here but I think that saving the forage fish (less their heads etc, the cats can have those) for people would make sense. Larger fish have more time to accumulate toxins in their systems.... Things that I don't really want to eat a lot of.

/agree with those saying that cat food should be loaded with mice and grasshoppers... things that they would eat if given the chance to catch them.

You'd be better served by taking on the people that supposedly believe in Jesus and yet use his name to divide and denigrate people (hint there's a church that gets lots of greenlights on Fark) and reduce them to 2nd class citizen status. It's not that most people have a problem with religion, they have a problem with it being shoved down their throats and used as a reason to hate other people, if for no other reason than they don't believe the same things that they do. Also, the money grabbing televangelists don't help either.

"These gourmet pet foods contain a significant amount of fish that may be suitable for direct human consumption."

given the direction the economy is going in this may be a good thing.

and andy you may have posted in the wrong thread since this one is pretty clear of Jesus references.

General_Ursus: I'm probably not far behind you, andyfromfl. Seems like Fark has become kinda hateful. I miss the days when it was funny.

there are a lot more folks here now and the nation in general is more polarized than when you joined. ergo more crap. well at least in the politics and religion threads.

Something you people NEVER get. Just because YOU revere something, doesn't mean that *I* have to treat it with reverance and respect. A 6 foot collage of Mohammad assfarking Jesus would make me giggle. You are free to belive what you want, but you can demand I treat your fairy tale with respect till you are blue in the face.

I live in Australia and own two cats (nominally), so I am getting a kick, etc.

Neither of my cats will eat fish (occasionally they will stoop so low as to nibble a bit of tuna, but I only give them the chance to do so about once a year.), so I never buy fish cat food. I'd suggest that the problem lies with pet food manufacturers, since, if they didn't make it, pet owners wouldn't buy it, and their cats wouldn't eat it. Since tinned fish is actually quite bad for cats, I'd be more than happy if they stopped making it.

From the comments to the article:

"Monday, 25 August 2008

This is outrageous that precious natural resources should be wasted on unnecessary pets. Ludicrous to the point of stupidity. Someone should pass a law making pet owners pay higher taxes to compensate. We should be feeding the needy people, not some rich white guy's cat!

Andy? From Florida? You're Kent's friend, right? How is Kent Hovind doing now adays? Is he out of jail yet for those pesky 52 counts of tax evasion? I can't believed the IRS wanted him to PAY TAXES... he works for God, so he shouldn't have to pay them. Pesky Laws. How is Dino land doing? Has Kent discovered the still living dinosaurs yet? No? Such a shame. And that whole thing of him beating up his wife.. the law makes such a big deal about it. Yeah I know the court dockets are available online, but the gov't made that stuff up. He was just demonstrating the wrath of God, and his wife got in the way. These things happen, I understand.

But it's been a long day, and I have to get up in the AM so I can eat rocks for breakfast and talk to the guy I met on the corner earlier so I too can get my PhD in ministry.

andyfromfl: but I'm leaving Fark.

Thank farking God and farking Jesus Christ in god damn crotchless panties! I am always thinking to myself, "why oh why won't these freepin', neoconservative, bigoted(*), intolerant(*), small-minded, brain-dead religious tards get the fark off of fark. They aren't welcome(*)." You're only doing the people here a favour because your input on all matters of discussion is necessarily - by virtue of the fact that you are religious - vastly less interesting and valuable than that of, say, tatsuma or czarangelus or the like, who are also as it happens religious but in a less insipid and contemptible way.

By the way, Jesus, as it happens, does not need you to stick up for him, primarily because he does not exist. But even if Jebus existed he likely would not possess the failings and flaws that human beings - and you clearly - ascribe to him, such as the flaw of needing others to adulate one or needing others not to speak abusively of one. If you think about it, human beings don't like being spoken ill of simply because this decreases their social currency and their ability to attain a high position in the human social hierarchy, and thus prosperity both emotional and material. Since Jesus and God purportedly have infinite power and presumably wouldn't depend on having a good reputation amongst humans for sustenance and financial prosperity, it is hard to envision a reason why they should give a flying fark what human beings think or say about them. (Perhaps we can say that they would dislike this because of scorns effect of turning people away from them or some other dumb-ass thing (that still doesn't explain why human beings would need to turn to them for salvation in the first place).)


Paraphrasing:

"The gods of the various religions always seem to like what the people most strongly associated with that religion like and hate what the same people hate."

And make no mistake, you show "reverence" for Jebus and God simply because you wish to extract favours of them. Human beings, and of course most other animals, have evolved in such a way as to associate positive feelings, like say "love" or anticipatory pleasure with stimuli that have in the past engendered positive feelings (consummatory pleasure). The opposite is true of course; things that have created pain in the past arouse feelings of hatred and anxiety when they meet with the senses on subsequent occasions. (See Pavlov's dog) If you saw Jebus as a source of misery or curses, rather than blessings, no doubt you would hate him. Because you see him as a source of blessings, you "love" him. It's no more complicated than that. You are not a righteous child of god. You do not love god - not in the way you think you do at any rate. Love is a ridiculous idea - or at least the excessively romanticized Hollywood forms of it are; the feelings to which humans attach the word "love" can indeed be pleasureful but please don't think of them as righteous or divine. They are very selfish and instinctual.

*Not a contradiction. You don't tolerate those who are unwilling to tolerate others, just as you don't allow murders escape prison or the death penalty simply because you hold it important that people should be free and shouldn't kill. The purpose of tolerance is to create a better society; allowing those who aren't tolerant to be intolerant in the name of tolerance contravenes this purpose clearly.

Funny as this meme formula could be, I regret to inform you that memes just aren't started as easily as they used to be. I think people are content with vodak, the Fark squirrel, paint-huffing guy, THIS, lolcats, FAIL, aristocrats, shenanigans, etc... ad infinitum et nauseam...

The last thing that lasted more than a month or two was rotsky, I think. But my attendance is rather spotty.

/You know, cliches and memes have their charm at first, and then they just make you want to scream after a while. I think it would be incredibly refreshing if we could start completely from scratch, preserving only the spray-paint-huffing guy since his shame must endure through the ages haunting him until the very moment of his death - supposing he hasn't destroyed his brain with huffing to the extent that he can no longer experience relatively complex emotions like shame.
