Fano: Ian McKellen quoted by a reporter: "How I long for a bit of man-flesh!"


I always pictured Ian McKellen as the kind of guy who would yell "FLY, YOU FOOLS!" right before biting into his Chicken McNuggets.

Horses, goats, chickens and sheep died on the farms

And the craft services crew will boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew.

I really love animals and this sucks.

However the truth is that the director could walk into my house, slap my wife, shiat on the floor, and kick my dogs on the way out and I would still pay to see the Hobbit.

Whenever I see "no animals were harmed" lines in movie credits I want to sue the studio. If they use vehicles to transport people and equipment, they are, at least, killing dozens, if not hundreds, of insects and other small critters.

Blue_Blazer: [25.media.tumblr.com image 300x232]

Too soon?

I need more facts before i get too outraged. Is this common?


Without knowing more about you it is hard to tell. Do you often need to be fully informed before you get outraged? If so, it's common with you.

However, many people get outraged with very few facts and the more they learn the less outraged they tend to get. In that sense, no it is not common.

The people protesting this want all animals to be set free.

to live in the wild. Where the landscape is unpredictable and they will fall down things, be eaten by predators and die of illnesses at a massively higher rate.

Eh, given that people used to die regularly during the making of the big epics of the 50s and 60s, I'm not really bothered that a few chickens got choked.

Horses, goats, chickens and sheep

This is going to be the worst adaptation of all time. Remember that bit where Bilbo and the gang visited a petting zoo? No? Well it's in the movie anyway.

Somaticasual: tenpoundsofcheese: Is chicken suicide a big problem?

The pecking order is a vicious cycle..


Chicken cannibalism is a major problem at industrial farms. Really, any time you pack too many animals into a confined space, they start to eat each other.

nytmare: Oh sure, you could say that some goats, chickens and sheep died, but when you find out most of them were killed in automobile wrecks or by suicide


Is chicken suicide a big problem?

I can see that many would die in car wrecks since their eye-wing coordination is not good and it is hard for them to slam on the brakes with their little chicken legs. But chicken suicides?

nytmare: Oh sure, you could say that some goats, chickens and sheep died, but when you find out most of them were killed in automobile wrecks or by suicide, and that their death rate was actually a little lower than that of the general population of barnyard critters, will you remain concerned?


I ate a chicken yesterday - should I not have done that?
