ROFLMAO!! That's just too funny. I simply must remember that.

Personally, I have no problems with vegetartian types, as long as their motives are sound. If they do it cuz animals have feeeeeelings, I call 'em hypocrites and step off. If they do it cuz thet's what they like, or because it keeps them in shape, then that's cool enough. I just find it hard to swallow a person who won't kill an animal, yet will devour pounds of once-living plant. Is death not death?
