Just for the record, I’m pro foie gras and against killing little wild songbirds by the million.

what about whale meat? I heard stories about radioactive waste drifting up the Norway coast from Sellafield.

Is there a link between your question and statement?

A comma would have been helpful here if you ask me.

You mean between whale and meat? When I grew up, whale was kind of a staple, as pretty much the cheapest meat in the store. I don’t really put whales in a special category of animals when it comes to whether or not to put them on the menu, but these days they would probably contribute more economic value through carefully managed tourism than whaling them for food.

It's typical (and convenient) of righteous people to declare being OK with what they could change and against what's virtually beyond their control ;-)

The arms of that fatso from tagoma's video would make great knuckles* (if they were not so old) :-)

*) Never tried it. Makes me feel nouseated from looking.

Genesis 1:28
And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

According to the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, mature liver cells can duplicate in response to injury and even if three-quarters of a liver is surgically removed, the organ can return to its normal functioning mass.

Good news if you are an alcohoiic.
