    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.

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

    @Nabuquduriuzhur " 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??)"

    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.

    Coyotes are becoming a real problem around here. The local coyotes have cross-bred with something or mutated or something: They are up to 50% larger than “normal” coyotes, they most certainly travel and hunt in packs (I have personally seen this behaviuor while deer hunting), and they are becoming very aggressive toward humans. There was a young woman killed by coyotes in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park (she was jogging on a trail, they dragged her down) and there have been several reports of other, non-fatal attacks over the past few years. I won’t go for a walk in the woods anymore without my razor sharp hatchet in my hand…

    But Boody looks so ultra cool in that leather jacket singing “greased lightning”. Welp, ya know what they say, “Karma’s a b**ch”, then ya die. ;:0 Today was a fabulous day, got to see Justin for the first time in a year, my 11 year old nephew is now much taller than me and my little niece is all grown up as well. Wow time is flyin by. The last thing I’m worried about is disturbing the cycle of life. People have gotten by for hundreds of years by eating meat or not eating meat, whichever they prefer. I just think that if your going to kill it you should eat it AND use each and every one of the useable pieces and parts. Hope ya all have a very Happy New Years. Peace to all. ;:^)

    I am always amazed by the snark and meanness that comes out on this board when somebody has a food preference that is not their own.
    There are a lot of very smart people out there, smarter than any of us, who eat meat and who don’t eat meat. I’ll never fathom why some people get so worked up over vegetarians.
