Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
I dated a vegetarian for a while. She smelt absolutely wonderful, every inch of her.

Don't california rolls have fish in them!??
I'm a baker, not a cook...er um. Baking is my forte.
Now, that is an interesting question. Vegetarians who don't eat meat for conscious sake but do have either a cat or dog, how is this to me obvious conflict resolved?
I do still enjoy quite a few vegetarian dishes. A few of my favs are Indian meals with rice, dahl, subji and chapati flat bread, a simple pasta with marinara or olive oil and garlic sauce, plus various Asian, Mid-eastern, Brazilian and Ethiopian meals at local restaurants of which I'm quite fond.
veggie western food is too dull to live on.
here's a choice of 3 salads. same ingredients, just diff dressings.

More bacon for the rest of us! Seriously, I respect others' need to be vegan/vegetarian, have a few friends who are. I'm quite the carnivore myself, and couldn't survive as a vegan or vegetarian.

I've been ovo-lacto for the past 30 years, except for a brief hiatus a number of years back. I've never been bothered by vegans or vegetarians, but I have been by carnivores. It's particularly irritating, because, like many on this thread, I have a strong live-and-let-live ethic. Like Luddite, I don't ever make a big deal out of my dietary habits. Many of my friends don't even know I'm a vegetarian.
its their choice but i could never be one. i like what jim gaffigan says, "(the vegetarians) 'o i haven't ate any meat for five year', (gaffigan) i haven't ate a banana in a month but you don't see me bragging" He also mentions "(a vegetarian) Do you know what they do to those chickens? (gaffigan) no but its delicious"

Why would anyone care what I do or do not eat?
Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.
I could see being a vegetarian, if I lived in India where they know how to make a vegetarian diet tasty and healthy. Most if not all vegans I've encountered have been militant.
An Indian vegetarian and I were talking about food one day, and he blurted out "I could never eat dead animals!". I said they're hard to stab with a fork when they're still alive. I know he thinks us carnivores are lower on the ladder, but he still thought that was funny.

When I was in the military, stationed overseas, I invited my First Sgt. over to dinner; he graciously accepted. My wife whipped up her famous (in the family, anyway) chicken cacciatore.
When he and his wife arrived, we discovered he was a vegetarian. He was more gracious, agreeing to forego his choice for our sake that evening.
Lud, I've encountered a few vegetarians since then, and respect their choice; no problem. They respect my omnivorous leanings, as well.
Never encountered a vegan directly, but my impressions from seeing/hearing on TV/internet, I'd likely tell them to STFU before I carve a butt steak off them for supper! (j/k, but I'd say it!)
I've only known a few vegans, but have several vegetarian friends. Mostly, I forget they are veggies, because they're pretty chill about it.

Of all the treasures I have, itís the memories that are the most precious.
On the original topic, I've experienced the whole range of vegetarian/vegan folks (including myself for about 7 years) from militant, angry, hateful vegans to absolutely heart-filled, generous, and sincere folks. I'd say that (from my exposure) most of the vegetarians/vegans I've encountered have been pretty laid back folk with a strong sense of spirituality (generally eastern). Nothing wrong with that, IMO.
Vegetarians have higher IQ than omnivores, but vegans lower - :-)
This study really annoyed some vegans I know.
I've seen a lot of california rolls with Krab in 'em.
I just heard about a study that said the more body hair you have, the smarter you are...
