It's an artificial construct of our society, a cultural decision, to make pets out of dogs and meat out of pigs.

So what? We get to decide on our own norms and mores, and we can certainly turn the channel every time your stupid face is on the telly.

Although I'd never eat it (I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way), I have to agree. Pigs have feelings just as much as dogs do, I'm sure.

A Chinese animal lover consoles a dog after a convoy of trucks carrying some 500 dogs to be sold as meat, were stopped along a highway in Beijing on early April 17, 2011.

Almost enough to make a guy vegetarian.

Almost.

Pigs are smart animals (smarter than a dog, anyway) with real personalities. I don't see how one can logically support eating pork and be against eating a dog.

Dogs are animals, so are pigs and cows. We eat animals. Why is eating a dog technically any different than eating a pig? Only cultural issues get in the way of Americans deciding to grill up Rover after an evening of playing fetch.

But I'm not ashamed of admitting that I will not eat certain things due to cultural differences, either. But I don't think of eating them as 'strange,' or 'weird.'

As one who is not a fan of dogs, doesn't bother me if people want to eat them.

I'd be a hypocrite to eat a steak and then tell people they can't eat other types of meat.

Why does logic need to be part of this? Logically we shouldn't put emotion into what we eat, yet that is what PETA does on a daily basis. I adore dogs, I don't care about pigs. 100% emotional.

Congratulations on proving morality is relative. Now go eat puppy while you learn that bucking societal norms has consequences. You are free to do anything you want within the law. It doesn't make them all things you SHOULD do.

Okay, this is a random question about The Hunt For Red October.

The scene captured in that often-posted picture occurs right after a plane crashes onto the deck of the aircraft carrier.

As far as I can remember, that crash is neither mentioned again. What is the point of it in the plot?

Can a pig sense that you are sick and cuddle with you when you are bedridden? Does a pig freak out when you come home? Does a pig whimper when you're angry? Does a pig plop his head on your leg when you are crying? If your pig died would you take off work?

Maybe to quarter him and put him in the freezer.

The ramifications of having the entire Russian fleet looking for the RO is that the US must deploy most of their fleet. They are in such close proximity to each other, the Russian aircraft clipped the wing of the American jet.

As for the thread...dogs are domesticated. That's why we don't eat them. We formed a unique bond with them when we bred them to be our friends. We domesticated pigs too. But they were meat from the start. We didn't invite pigs into our homes to sleep and play with us. Nor did we rely on pigs to protect us. You want to eat a wolf? Go ahead. You eat a domesticated dog in front of me, don't be surprised if I hit you.

The plane crash changed the mind of the Admiral to fly Jack Ryan to the sub tailing the Red October.

Well, he's right -- pigs are smart, empathic, and are often kept as pets by people who cannot tolerate dog/cat dander. I still wouldn't associate with anyone who knowingly consumes puppy meat, yet I loves me some bacon. Morality has less to do with it than social convention.

I've eaten animals that make good pets before. I'd probably try dog too if it became convenient at some point.

''You can't object, unless you also object to the farming of pigs. It's an artificial construct of our society, a cultural decision, to make pets out of dogs and meat out of pigs. Both animals could be used the other way round, although pigs probably do make better meat than dogs and dogs better pets than pigs, but it's not a foregone conclusion.''

I can't get the article to open, so I'll just say what I came here to say anyway.

You want to eat dogs? Fine. But please kill it quickly. I've read too many horror stories of how the dogs are treated (beaten and the like) before they're killed for food.

Eat what you will, but please don't torture your food beforehand. It's just not necessary. We're better than that.

THIS. The notion they have to torture it to make the meat an aphrodisac or some crap. Ugh.

We cannot be judged by the worst of us any more than we can be judged by the best of us. Generally speaking, yes, we're better than that.

Yeah, because I am sure that the dog would be OK with you eating him if it were over with quickly

This pretty much sums it up for me. Just because we're gonna kill something to consume its flesh doesn't mean we gotta be cruel to it beforehand.
