I hear the Lower Lapland Tiger-Striped Terrapin is scheduled to be really good braised with shallots and consommé.

If it's warm blooded animal I'm willing to kill it and grill it.

for science.

so you are saying that there are known unknowns and unknown unknowns?

Some use their deliciousness as their main defense:

Are we running low on cows, or something? No? The steak and cheeseburger supply remains intact? OK then...I'm good.

The general rule of thumb is if the animal can be anthropomorphized it is delicious.  Also deliciousness is a sliding scale based on how cute the animal is/was.

More important is whether they consider me delicious.

What are you talking about!?

Batter it in panko and fry it in peanut oil.
It will come out like fried crab rangoon
Serve with sweet and sour sauce or a little soy

Red meat, white meat, blue meat, meat-o-farking-rama. You will eat it. Because not eating meat is a decision. Eating meat is an instinct! Yeah! And I know what it's about. "I don't want to eat the meat because I love the animals. I love the animals." Hey, I love the animals too. I love my doggy. He's so cute. My fluffy little dog.. He's so cute- There's the problem. We only want to save the cute animals, don't we? Yeah. Why don't we just have animal auditions. Line 'em up one by one and interview them individually. "What are you?" "I'm an otter." "And what do you do?" "I swim around on my back and do cute little human things with my hands." "You're free to go." "And what are you?" "I'm a cow." "Get in the farking truck, ok pal!" "But I'm an animal." "You're a baseball glove! Get on that truck!" "I'm an animal, I have rights!" "Yeah, here's yer farking cousin, get on the farking truck, pal!" We kill the cows to make jackets out of them and then we kill each other for the jackets we made out of the cows.

Also, FTFA:  And there is actually no consensus on the exact number of species, with experts relying on extrapolation based on known data.

I think there are 72 million species, but I need to consult my chart.

roc6783: Eating meat is an instinct!


We'd need to have some way of killing animals with our bodies, like fangs, claws, or stingers, in order for that to be true. True carnivores have strong stomach acids and short intestinal tracts in order to get the meat out of their bodies fast. With us It just hangs out in our long intestines, rotting, for ages. Nothing about our bodies gives the impression we evolved to consume meat. You can also feed cows ground up cows, but it doesn't change the fact they evolved to be herbivores.

I like meat as much as anyone, because i was raised not even questioning it. But now that i understand the underlying biology i eat less of it.

Ya, it's a joke from Denis Leary's comedy special "No Cure for Cancer", not a biology lesson.
