    there's no way that i'd voluntarily eat something that has it in it to protect me from sharks. especially, since if it was a self-righteous judger, it'd probably let me die.

    unless, of course, it's between him and me. then he'll be on a stick. but, i think a dolphin would understand that.

    The appearance and behavior is enough for me. I don't know much about them, but they act and look far too human for me to feel particularly good about eating one.

    Dolphins are actually brutal animals. Gang-raping. The Porpoise Holocaust!

    Yeah... I'd take a bite out of Flipper.

    I'm mostly interested in WHY you would or wouldn't, what factors do you consider?
    If hungry enough, I would eat any of those things.

    My hestiation in eating a dolphin or a dog comes with some perception that they would not be healthy to eat. I do not know why I seem to think this, but I do. I suppose knowing of the intelligence of dophins and the role dogs play in human lives also affects that kind of decision. And yet, octopi are incredibly intelligent, but I wouldn't feel bad about eating one of those...hmm...

    As for apes, most of the hesitation comes from the fact that their faces are configured very much like humans and their eyes are highly expressive. Because of this, it would feel too much like cannibalism in most normal situations.

    Could I kill one of those?

    Again, if pressed and in dire need, yes, I definitely could. But I certainly wouldn't want to do so nor could I kill one without a large amount of guilt.

    If I had to survive? I wouldn't have a problem with eating any of those things. Dogs are considered a delicacy in some places, why not? Apes... sure. Dolphins, no reservations. That is, if I had to eat to survive.

    If I were just offered those things, I would not want to eat them. I prefer good old chicken, thank you very much.

    ^ It is very nice that your very first post in this forum tells us that you would eat these supposedly good natured animals. Your avatar helps shed some light as well.

    if animals are like humans, does that mean cannibals eat ugly ppl first?

    cus most of the animals ppl eat are ugly. like pigs, cows, chickens, fish

    cute animals like seals and puppies, usually never get eaten. why? well, bc they are cute and u get feelings easier for prettier things.

    so if u are like those ppl in the andes who ate each other, make sure u are good looking. lolz
