    Yup, I'd try it.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I would not if it was endangered.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    ofcourse, i would at least give it a shot.

    also, what kind of monster would try to prevent people from generating genuine financial incentives within society to protect and breed larger numbers of endangered species?

    supposedly the industry is not regulated by the fda so there are concerns about animal cruelty in the slaughtering and human safety in consumption

    I'm really shocked at what you'll eat when you wont eat black pudding, its totally discriminatory!! Your pinko liberal ethics just go out the window when it comes to showing black pudding some loving!!

    I'll eat anything. A life is a life.

    But then again it depends on how industrialized it is. I won't support trashing the ecosystem, so lions might be questionable to me.

    Not for moral reasons, nor for ethical ones. I don't think it's any more moral to kill a cow just because there's more cows. But if it's going to wreck some sort of ecological balance, I will hesitate.

    It's no more cruel to eat an individual animal because it's endangered.

    Imagine if we were on a plane. 10 people 9 parachutes. 9 are white and one is an eskimo*. He gets the parachute over you because eskimos are "endangered". Has human suffering somehow been avoided? Same number of deaths, just differently distributed among groups.

    Same goes for animals.

    *Yes eskimo. No, not "innuit".
    I don't think it's more or less cruel. I just don't like losing irreplaceable things. It'd be like the difference between burning a bundle of newspapers from yesterday or a rare, old book if you had to burn something to keep warm and those were your only two choices.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
