    as long as you intentionally caused another human being to die, regardless of methods adopt, it's call murder. don't tell me you didn't know that?

    so, by your logic, eating cows and chickens is like raising children in an orphanage and killing and eating them when they get of age? taking children's bones and using them to make stock? breading children's legs and deep frying them and putting them in a bright red bucket?

    Shark is some kind of fish for human to consume like like any other fish. Children are human, not fish. They do not belong to the same category.

    So how do we let sharks get their fair shake to fight back? Toss the hunters and distributors in the sea.
    Using your logic, there wouldn't any life on earth. People who consuming pork should be killed and feed them to pig. People who consuming beef should be killed and feed them to pig. And for vegetarians, they too should be killed and feed them to the vegetables/trees. Vegetables/plants should be destroyed for consuming soil and water.

    because they are livestocks ^__________^ chickens, beef, mutton...they are already condemned to be born as food....so nobody raised any red flag, even though many of them are raised in very inhumane ways, no less cruel than how the sharks were treated.

    I'm not in the position to give you permission to do so. Maybe you should tune in to your moralities and decide if it's ok or not.

    Alas, that's one of the things which I intentionally forget. What is a human good for, anyways, when they live for pure greed and selfishness? Hurting the environment, the whole food chain. If a specie is told to us as endangered, let's just do that specie a favour by stop consuming it, especially it is something considered luxury.

    I'll ask for forgiveness. If it shall be called murder, so be it! Why? There are too many charities (despite getting cheated, per se, more than ONCE) shows out there in "You-know-where" so but none of them brings the "sympathetic" human being's attention to this shark issue (or the other animals in distress). For what reasons, God knows. Be patient, the child trafficking issue will get its turn into the charities funding raising sometime. They are very sympathetic towards human.

    I just had a feast, and now I am hungry again after reading the last page.

    No wonder Lucre is confused. Here we are bashing this poor guy about eating shark fin, when there's all this other joking around (I hope) surrounding this thread.

    Leave TC alone, we are all monsters.

    i wasn't bashing TC about eating shark fin. i was just trying to apply jiang bao's "logic" to my eating habits.

    now i need to go shop for some fava beans and a nice chianti.

    For people who against eating shark fin, don't eat it. No one can force you to do so, you have every right to boycott the product. However, leave other people alone, do not dictate other people lives. It's none of your business if other people consuming it. Who are you to judge?

    Here's what I said to TC some days ago. Should answer your question.

    "Orh jeez, it's the holiday season, can't ya for once try to follow the argument along? The point here is that the sharks are being harvested for their fins and then tossed back into the sea while still alive and suffering. Unnecessary cruelty.

    It's not about eating animal meat.

    Besides, pigs and cows are raised to be eaten. There's no danger of the species dying out. Meanwhile, people eat shark fin as a status symbol or novelty. It's like those dickheads who were eating that half fried fish in the video I linked to. They just want to be dicks for the hell of it. Not because they need to."

    well then, i should be able to "farm" human beings for consumption as well, as long as i'm not unnecessarily cruel and i raise them solely for food. there's no danger of people as a species dying out either.

    and i think those practices have changed, or are starting to. i see hunks of shark meat being sold with their fins already cut off. so, almost the entire shark is used. granted this could be like 5% of the market, but small steps.

    Ever read Jonathan Swift's satirical essay "A Modest Proposal?"

    That was a great essay.

    Anyway, can someone give me a summary of the last three pages of the thread?
    Because I'm somewhere in between,
    My love and my agony.
