    As an older brother, I’m kind of with Holly on this one. Alix just painted a target on herself.

    Considering that most eggs available chicken eggs aren’t actually inseminated, this is a non issue. An egg isn’t an embryo…

    It’s more of a chicken period :P

    So what is broccoli, corn, tomatoes, nuts, bean sprouts …

    …… @the life I draw upon: very good point!! They all could have grown and flowered and ripened to seed and then go be fertilizer for their offspring in the fullness of time……. There is only one way: Fasting forever…
    I’m quite amazed that Alix is so totally unaware.. what is she supposed to be? Nine? — probably another family without any children’s books on nature and the universe… but lately all characters have taken a swing into “dumb-sweet-things”..
    Tomorrow they’ll finally realize the egg was sent already without fouling contents, hint: the whole on the bottom……

    As noted, eggs used for breakfast are not embryos or even zygotes; they’re unfertilized ova. Although … I remember reading there are places where actual embryonic chicks are considered a delicacy.

    Alix is never going to be a biologist if she gets grossed out so easily. Mother Nature is an amoral psychopath.

    There is a big difference between vegetarians – who do eat eggs, cheese, yogurt, etc. – and vegans, who don’t eat ANY animal products. Most vegetarians think vegans are crazy.

    That would be balut, popular in the Philippines and southeast Asia. While I’m pretty adventurous when it comes to trying new foods, this is one place where I draw the line. Just…ewww.
