    Richard - Vulcans not eating meat might be inspired by high-caste Hindus being vegetarian, too. Often lower castes try to reach ritual purity by adopting Brahmin (highest caste) customs, such as being vegetarian.
    and no wonder hearts and minds have been won

    That makes sense, Gene Roddenberry was a pretentious hippy douche so he would've been interested in dorky stuff like that

    Vera, something like that crossed my mind too. I don't know much about Hindus, but somehow I ended up reading about them on wikipedia recently. That certainly wasn't why I originally went to wikipedia. I probably never even finished researching what I went there for. Damn links, can't resist, must click.

    The best thing Roddenberry ever did for Star Trek was die. Wait, Ozymandias doesn't still post here does here? If so I'm deleting that last part.

    Actually meat doesn't really have it's own unique flavor, it's more the texture and nutritional value it holds, and how full you feel.

    You need to spice the shit out of it, to make it taste good soo.... blah

    Plus can vegan girls swallow?

    That sums it up for me perfectly.

    Also, a while ago I discovered that I like fish much more than I used to think. Now it has really grown on me.

    I don't get vegetarians who eat chicken and fish. Why not just go for the best of both worlds and eat penguin?

    I've started to eat less meat, but that's basically only for climate change considerations. "Animal reasons" don't make much sense to me given the amount of ants etc I kill on a daily basis or the pleasure I get from killing a mosquito that has annoyed me (then again, I try to avoid "cruelty meat" or halal meat for torture reasons).

    Sadly no. The general practice here (and in most of the developped world I guess) is stunning the animal to an instant dead. With Halal meat the stunning isn't done, the throat of the animal gets cut and the animal has to bleed to dead. I know what I would prefer myself.
