    LOL.

    Haven't you people got anything better to do? :mrgreen:

    Yes, and we might have been talking about actual permaculture instead :p


    So Dalz, you're a closet permie. Why don't you just come out? :)

    I wouldn't say it was a joke, just a way of getting a point across by the poster in question.

    Maybe not eat them, but we could breed them up as servant/slaves of all different types to serve the upper crust as in A Brave New World by Aldus Huxley. Oh wait, that's what the third world is for... Right?!

    body parts are readily available in Bangladesh. in China criminals are executed and vital organs sold, and I wont mention here what happens in certain Arab Nations.

    Re: the great vegetarian tragedy

    Since scientists are already looking at cloning people for body parts i imagine there will be some pretty sick rich people who are dying to get their hands on the leftovers....
    Yeah its not too good to think about but we eat orange roughy - 75 years to reach sexual maturity and 140 years for good plate size, dolphin and endangered species so some people can say they have tried everything.... but they haven't, have they?
    So i would expect that in the next decade or so in some back water sushi bar next to a research lab wealthy business people from all over the world will line up to join the club - does any one disagree ?(that this would be a niech market - something that 1 in 10,000 or so ppl would try).
    There are so many stupid people in the world that not much suprises me any more...
    At any rate food for thought i guess!

    I think most of you folks have missed Dalzieldrin's point:

    He's having a barbeque at his place, he's providing the meat, and everyone's invited! Please bring your own side dishes and condiments.

    Re: the great vegetarian tragedy

    With some exceptions, species tend not to be cannibalistic. It goes against the natural evolution to self-decimate for one thing. Species that do on occasion practice cannibalism do so for survival reasons and usually in times of drought or when other food sources are low. Given that we humans are able to farm and catch our own food without too much difficulty cannibalism is not only against human morality but is not relevant in terms of survival.

    There was a case of the Andes plane crash some years ago where survivors ate the dead passengers until they were rescued but anyone can see these were extraordinary circumstances.

    Using the idea of farming humans to make a point about vegetarianism is counter productive.

    I read somewhere that some of the rescued from that andes crash committed suicide because they couldn't handle having done what they did.

    is't it the pits when they do that to you? :)

    Join the club. i don't consider myself a permaculturaist either. I'm here totally ob false pretenses.

    So a bit of topic are we Tonto?,Cisco? Pancho? Where is my horse?
    Has janahn disappeared back to wonderland?
    Will we ever know?
    My kingdom for a SUV.

    on vegetarianism
    There seems little doubt that the evidence is in that wide ranging vegetarian diet is best for the human body and the planet. But when have we ever done anything that is good for us-- or for the planet for that matter.

    Yeah, I read that too Mil. I don't know what I would have done in the same situation - don't think I could stomach the idea.
