Lsherm: One thing is for sure - besides the pig, we don't usually leave the head on our small game.

And that's the dealbreaker for me. If there's a head and/or butthole on it, I ain't eatin' it. Just a personal quirk of mine.

The substitute is useless without cysteine.  Excellent hangover preventative in eggs, which is why I switched from burgers at 3 in the morning to breakfast tacos.

gameshowhost: twistofsin: I don't understand why more folks don't keep chickens. They are so stupid easy to raise, and the quality of the egg compared to store bought is unreal.

I have 9 of them, and the hardest part about raising chickens is figuring out how many of your ginormous eggs are really needed for a recipe.

My city allows for urban chickens.  I lived next to 4 chickens for a couple years.  I do not want to live next to anyone with 4 chickens, ever again.

/yes it was way worse when they had a rooster, but even the 4 chickens were annoying as fark.
//yes, yes, i *did* laugh my ass off when a fox came into the neighborhood and tore them to shreds.
/*mutter* stupid neighbors got a taller fence and started over *mutter*

And this is why I want to wait til I can buy some country acreage to raise some chickens, a goat, maybe a dairy cow and some pigs, and keep a happy garden because I kill the rabbits that eat it and eat them

shanrick: "We're trying to take the animal totally out of the equation,"

Do this more.

Yes. When animals become useless, we can eliminate them all, leaving more resources for us humans.

TheManMythLegend: Actually most country's problems are rooted in the fact their birtrates are too low.

Yup, little known fact about how North Korea got into the whole thermonuclear war game.  Kim Jong Il was paying time warner for 30mbps cable, but then he went to and barely squeaked out korea hasn't been the same since.  Recently obtained documents have indicated Kim Jong Un was found to be downloading porn in the other room at the time, skewing the results, but it was too late...the threats had been made, the damage done.

Skleenar: CheekyMonkey: Oh, goody.  Yet another technological attempt to solve a non-problem, while studiously ignoring the real issue:  Too Many Humans.

\and, yes, I AM doing something about that.  I've had a vasectomy, and will produce no offspring.

How long did your guys hurt afterwards?

Sore and swollen for 2 or 3 days.  Not really a big deal.  It's a 15-minute procedure.  The freakiest part of it was seeing the little puffs of smoke/steam (my urologist used a laser scalpel to sever & cauterize the vas deferens at the same time).

I was hoping for Chicken Nobs?
