    a cow wearing another cow’s skin……Oh….the irony…..

    Everybody talks about the leather, but nobody does anything about it.

    Good eatin’, provides milk for cheese, and the skin has a multitude of uses.

    No, Boody’s not vegan. He’s not stoned. Nor does he have a bright red face like many of the vegans did when I was in college. (I’d still love to know what caused that. Nutritional deficiency, drugs, what??) He’s actually doing a decent impression of a vegan. The ones I went to school with had leather shoes, belts, handbags, etc.

    Karma, why must you put a guilt trip on the Boodster? Hey, man, that’s not cool….

    Animals do a lot of things that are not generally known.
    .
    I’ve never been able to look at chipmunks the same way after finding out they eat dead chipmunks.
    .
    Short-horned lizards whip their little tails back and forth in catlike fashion just before they strike at an ant.
    .
    Wolves kill for sport, despite the stereotypes. They are about as uncute as a furred animal can get. Some dummies running with a wolfpack earlier this year got eaten, stupidly thinking they could join a pack. Same thing happened not many years back with brown bears in Alaska.
    .
    Coyotes exhibit pack or family hunting behavior. They usually are not “lone coyotes.” Most of the times I’ve run across them at night, they are in groups. Pretty cool to listen to them.
    .
    Rattlers generally won’t strike unless provoked or about to molt (can’t see well).
    .
    Pikas, the adorable rockpile critter, will sometimes come up to people out of curiousity. They also live at much lower elevations than even most bios believe. Some about 15 miles south of me around 4000 feet in the rocks east of the Cascades. Cute critters and definitely not endangered. Just have to be in the right places. On a trail once, four half-grown ones came up to us, looking up like “what are you?”. One hopped right up onto the boot of the lady with me.
    .
    Cougars are curious. A professor at the U I got my second B.S. and M.S. from snowshoed into a campground. Had to use the outhouse while he was there. A couple of minutes later, he opens the door and there is a circle of cougar prints around the outhouse and, as he found out on the return trip, partway back up the trail. It had followed him but made no noise.
    .
    Bears are smart enough to chew through the ropes that keep a pack in a tree. Had that happen once.
    .
    One of the funniest things I’ve ever seen is a grey squirrel dragging a green sugar pine cone across a highway (96 in this case). When green, they weigh a LOT more than the squirrel, being up to 21 inches long. With about four tremendous heaves, it pulled it across the road. Didn’t even seem to notice I’d slowed down to avoid smacking it. It wanted that cone.

    If you are a vegetarian to save the animals, why are you eating their food?

    Oh I LOVE that! May I steal it to use?

    C’mon Nab, that is easy one. Most new vegans, and new employees at GNC mess up their bodily systems, and first may look a little jaundiced or ashen from lack of l-carnitine.
    Then they take niacin to flush their systems, instead of ceasing overloading their liver with loads of supplements they may not need. Niacin is a necessary B vitamin, but too much will cause your body to flush. Way too much niacin once caused me to fill the bathtub with ice, and 15 minutes soaking in ice water, 30 minutes out of tub, cycling for four hours, until I no longer felt is was on fire. I recommend strongly, staying away from ice baths, and to a less degree staying away from niacin unless your Dr prescribes it. Many people do not tolerate niacin well, I am one of them. I was young and healthy, and looked as bright red as a fresh cooked lobster or crawfish.

    Not to mention destroying their habitat to grow grain and vegetables, consigning them to slow starvation.
    Ah, but it’s a humane slow starvation.
    There is no escaping the fact that every living thing lives at the expense of other living things.

    If God didn’t want us to eat animals, then why did he make them out of meat?

    If the “great holiday spirit” is at all wise, he/she/it made Boody’s jacket from the skin of an animal that died of natural causes. Why should he feel awful about that? Indeed, I’d feel awful thinking such a nice useful piece of hide was allowed to just rot away…

    AMEN BROTHER! I belong to PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals… and in that capacity, I have never met an animal I didn’t like. ;-)

    Karma, Boody abandoning the jacket will not bring the cow back to life. But letting someone wear it will ensure that she did not die for nothing.

    The way things are set up cows still eat cows along with turkey’s, chickens and pigs. They all eat each other as well. Even though the law says you can’t feed cows—cows, you can feed cows to other animals, rend them then feed cows them.

    I get a very read face and I am not vegan. Nor have I seen them intoxicated. You really have some prejudices there.
