    Metaphours, you may find this more relevant than a poll on this forum as it is a bigger sample.

    I usually only eat meat once per day. I've tried going full vegetarian a couple times but I wind up feeling sickly and anemic. Plus with this new running I've been needing even more calories than usual, so there is no way. I would turn into a wraith.

    This thread reminds me of an article I read earlier today-- Apparently, eating a low-calorie, high-nutrient diet can reduce the effects of aging.

    ^That is a better sample size, but it probably suffers from what most internet polls suffer from, an abundance of NFs and NTs.

    haven't consumed (knowingly) poultry or red meat since i was 8, 11 years ago. i had to make the concession of eating fish to calm the nerves of my anxious mother. i still love a good smoked salmon, or salmon sushi. could do without, though. and have. in fact i go days without eggs or dairy or other animal products.

    Why would I want to turn eating into a daily chore, rather than a pleasure?

    Considering your username, I'm not surprised you gave that answer.

I try to buy organic and free range when I can, because I also don't think it's okay to torture animals if I am going to choose to eat them.

    Vegetarianism is pretty silly if you live on cheese pizza and chocolate bars, but I still don't understand the anger towards it. The anger towards vegetarianism doesn't make any sense at all to me. In the grocery store the other day I saw where someone had placed a bunch of containers of raw hamburger and pork in a portable cooler that held vegetarian meals. Why? What's the point in that? Maybe it was a teenager rebelling for the hell of it, but I also see an awful lot of adults who have a misplaced desire to torture vegetarians.
    Wondered about this one myself. I call it the "SMUG EFFECT"....

    *sound echos, picture fades to demonstration*

    Has anybody have known someone who owned a hybrid, especially when they first came out?

    Those hybrid owners, as best illustrated on South Park, were stereotypically arrogant and full of themselves because they were being friendly to the environment and felt like they had a reason to feel they were better than everyone else.

    Of course not all hybrid owners are arrogant snobs. Just like not all Vegans are pasty-faced social mal-contents who believe that Mother Earth has elevated them on a higher plain of existence because of their "moral" choice not to butcher the animals.

    For you, it just might be a dietary choice, having nothing to do with your self-worth or ego. You are the true victims in the backlash of normal people against smug. For that, I apologize for those who would catch you in the crossfire. I actually believe that's a pretty healthy way to live, so more power to the vegeable eaters!
    Love is the point.

    ^ You're so right. I hate it when people (celebrities do this a lot) just indulge in vegetarianism as a form of Elitism.
