Likwit: ecmoRandomNumbers: I don't eat tofu on general principal because it's not meat.

That's a pretty silly way to think about it. A lot of tofu dishes have meat or fish in them. Obnoxious American vegetarians just ruined the idea of tofu for everyone, didn't they?


Not really.

Tofurkey, tofu burgers, boiled tofu, and in general -- people who tried to make tofu look like meat ruined tofu for me.

You can't even sneak it past me in good Chinese food. I know how tofu feels. It feels like sadness.

Never tried it, but your wife is Chinese. Either of you tried fermented tofu?

She likes it, but eats just a little at a time alongside some other dish.  A jar of it seems to last her 2 to 3 weeks.  I'm not fond of it, but I do like kimchi so go figure.


I made fermented tofu once, just not on purpose.

So if I snuck some meat into a vegetarian meal and they didn't notice it would then it would make them jackasses if they demanded vegetarian meals going forward?

I May Be Crazy But...: Harbinger of the Doomed Rat: There are no plant sources for B12, so vegans have to take supplements or have B12 added to their food to remain healthy.  If you have to take supplements or buy food with additives in order to get all the necessary nutrients, your diet is pretty much by definition not healthy.

The supplements are from bacterial sources, so still vegan. And what's wrong with a multivitamin? Are you seriously telling me that a multivitamin isn't a common part of modern diets?


In your opinion; should it HAVE to be when simply eating a balanced diet supplies ALL that nutrition with no need to use additional resources to mass-farm nutrients JUST to satisfy the moral condescention of 'meat is murder', when the reality of it is more 'meat is life' for the vast majority of humans on earth?

Just look at these AMORAL SCUM, for instance. They should be shamed out of existence for murdering that sentient creature instead of eating Flintsones fruitymix multivits crushed over tofu, like good, moral, normal people who aren't pure psychopaths do.

aagrajag: Radioactive Ass: aagrajag: Radioactive Ass: I May Be Crazy But...: But sometimes I really want a Wonder Bread, american cheese, and baloney sandwich. (With Cool Whip - yes, I will fight you on this)

Cool Whip? Fake whipped cream? I can sort of see arguing over Miracle Whip vs Mayo but whipped cream? Well then yes, you are crazy. No buts about it.

I'm pretty sure that was just a brain fart. And I actually like goblin cum Miracle Whip.

I sort of guessed that but I couldn't resist. I liked Miracle Whip when I was a kid but then I grew up beyond a PB&J sammich. Not by much, but Mayo and Mustard is my go to spreadable condiment on almost everything sammich related. Miracle Whip is just way too sweet for me as an adult.

I can't even buy Miracle Whip here, but a thin layer of gochujang can supply a bit of tangy sweetness.


Oooh!  I may have to try that.

RA's PB&J comment reminded me... for Christmas one of my sisters sent us some of her homemade canning, including one jar of candied jalapenos that she knew I would like.  I sent her a thank you text with a pic of my "PB & J" sandwich... peanut butter on one side and jalapenos on the other.  She's a nice sister.

aagrajag: baron von doodle: aagrajag: baron von doodle: And pork will, in theory, tarnish the soul of a believer. I consider that a possible effect.

"Tarnish the soul"? I'm supposed to take that lunacy seriously? They need better gods in that case.

Also, I'm pretty sure that they get a pass if they consume it unknowingly, involuntarily, or by necessity.

Some faiths don't get a pass. You have to ritually clean yourself afterwards. I am secular, but I respect those of faith. Obviously alot of people here do not. Jesus said, "Don't be a dick".

They don't have to do anything. I have more consideration for an OCD sufferer who feels a compulsion to sterilise their keyboard should anyone else touch it, as they have an actual disorder.

Religious morons People of faith perform their silly rituals by choice; that's on them. There is nothing worthy of respect here.

Even more amusingly, many of the methods required to produce meat acceptable to religious freaks entails significantly more suffering for the animal. Their willful delusions cause immense amounts of utterly pointless pain. I don't respect that at all.


Just using Americans alone, there is an 89% belief in good.

http://news.gallup.com/poll/193271/am​e​ricans-believe-god.aspx

I am not a believer, but dismiss them at your peril. Many of the believers are good people. In my experience, the best are Methodist. They are one of the few sects that actually read for themselves and don't blindly follow shepherds. Scoff them if you want, but we are vastly outnumbered.

If you can't see why tricking someone into putting something into their body against their wishes is wrong, I really can't help you.

That's not as bad as rohypnol, but in the same ethical area.

No it isn't

Introducing a foreign agent against someone's wishes, yes it is. Same ethical area as sneaking pork to halal or devout Jewish eaters.

Rohypnol alters a person's mental state in a pretty severe way. A bit a stealth pork is quite literally harmless if they remain ignorant of it. It's a passive-aggressive dick move, but the two are not remotely alike in motive, effect, harm, or degree.

Read the last few posts. I posit soul damage and another asked if adding clean semen is ok.

Oh, and almost no one considers semen to be a foodstuff. Pork, on the other hand, is one of the most widely consumed meats in existence. China alone produced 54 million metric tons of it last year. When semen as food becomes a billion-dollar industry, you'll have a point.

Perhaps you should stop trying to make analogies, as you're not very good at it.


I'm going to need to break the 4th wall for a moment to check on something before we can continue here.  Did you make one of the funniest posts in history, or did you slip a rape analogy into a post responding to semen so smoothly that you didn't even notice?  I'm going to play back that tape real quick in case you didn't notice:

You think their demands are unreasonable because they didn't notice, and I think your demands are unreasonable because you didn't notice.

Used to be Fark rarely had a DM link. But around the same time they made a push for American audiences, some nitwit took it upon themselves to spam DM links (or Drew got paid, who knows at this point). And here we are, where we get about 4-5 DM links a day. On a site where we consider ourselves media savvy, and where the webmaster once deigned to write a book about how the media takes advantage of you. Now every week is Shark Week here on Fark.

But my ancestors didn't climb up the food chain to eat carrots. I have canine teeth for some reason. But I use my molars to grind carrots and potatoes.


They really doesn't mean you wouldn't be healthier without meat. It just means that being able to eat meat, and anything else, was a selective advantage in times when food and particularly protein wasn't that easy to come by.
