Everyone saying that's cruel and then going out and having a nice burger, a piece of bacon, or chicken fajita is a fucking hypocrite. Try to educate yourself on how "food" animals are raised and slaughtered in the western world.

Would it be better if we didn't acknowledge the cruelty going on. 

We have confront our own cruelty one step at a time, and it starts with acknowledging the cruelty done by others.

It's regrettable the way some livestock are kept, this however (vid in OP) is unnesscery and cruel and something you are doing, not something out of your hands. As long as you make a concious effort to deter from buying abused livestock meat/ect like buying free range eggs, I think you have every right to condem these sickos.

And eating meat ect is an everyday act of life, this is just for pure enjoyment, that's the difference between this.



 

that's...disturbing.

Well to them it's an act of everyday life, who are we to judge? Do you eat lobster? Do you know how those are cooked?

And some livestock my ass, unless you're buying from a mom and pop store, the eggs and meat you buy from walmart or your local grocery store is from a major livestock farm where the animals suffer tremendously. I can research and post some videos on how those work if you guys want.

With that said, I'm not a vegetarian, but I'm seriously thinking of only buying animal products from mom and pop stores, even if it's significantly more expensive.



Dude, this is just messed up. How could anyone possibly eat that and not throw up? For crying out loud, the thing isn't even cooked! Dude, just...dude.



I don't know why people tell me to get a life. I'm a gamer, I have lots of lives!

Poor thing, he's kinda cute too :(

Oh just you wait and see what japan does to that thing in your avatar. Get ready for the cutest man bear pig rat griffen BBQ ever (with added soy sauce!)




Song reminded me of this. Vicariously die, you sea rats!

some animals from the sea move even after they are dead. so this is no torture more like people not knowing things before they comment. once i caught a fish that died but after i skinned it, it started moving all of a sudden. probably because of the salt i added to it. now one would think that if it was still alive it would move while i was skinning it because naturally it would feel pain...



    R.I.P Mr Iwata :'(


The squid already had its head chopped off before serving, but the legs are moving as a result of the sodium-containing soy sauce. Muscles contract in response to signals from neurons, which transmit signals around the body by means of a series of sequential influxes of sodium across the cell membrane into the neuron. With this excess of sodium from the soy sauce, it's like a simulated signal activating the muscles.

Actually generally only pigs and chickens are raised inhumanely on a massive scale (so excluding foie gras and veal for example) this is mostly because raising beef or mutton inhumanely costs more than just letting them chew grass in a field. At supermarkets where I come from you can easily buy both free-range eggs and chicken and 'happy' (free-range) pork.
