    Re: Sushi chef, restaurant charged with serving endangered whale

    To those that said "Yes." Why is it okay to eat something that is endangered? You're okay with the extinction of an animal, even if you're not starving and there's plenty of other things to eat?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    If you are worried about it going extinct then find a way to mass produce it, domesticate it and find a way to make them grow faster with hormones.

    I as under the assumption thought part of evolution was survival of the fittest and strongest.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    not any more, its now survival of the hungriest
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Hello, half cajun, we'll eat anything.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    If it's endangered, we might not get another chance to try it out.

    Not eating it isn't going to bring the animal back to life.

    I was offered whale tongue in China in a soup, but refused, mostly because it looked utterly repulsive, but also I found the idea abhorrent. The Chinese and Japanese are going to scrape the oceans bare and there is not much to stop it from happening.

    I'd probably try it. Then again, maybe not, because I might end up loving it and then I couldn't get any more.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    You write that like it's such an easy thing to do.

    How about this... don't hunt them until their population is strong enough to sustain. Wow, what a freaking concept.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
