they might.

one of the reasons there are too many rabbits is because we humans kicked out their natural predator... wolves, coyotes, foxes, owls, eagles and falcons.

rabbits are vermin.

I dated a vegetarian for a while. She smelt absolutely wonderful, every inch of her.

My vegetarian ex couldn't really cook...except for sticky rice. We had california rolls a lot. Blech.

She was picky, I shoulda dumped her way earlier than I did. Stupid me for letting her manipulate me!

They aren't wool sheep, just very short hair. Better for the tropics. They are meat sheep but mainly, lawnmowers.

Yes, dogs will eat rabbit without a doubt, and most other kinds of meat.

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.

She ate fish on occasion. She was raised not eating land animals, so it was just something she did naturally.

I've seen clothing advertised as vegan.
When I think of autos with leather interior I think Real Estate Agent, for some reason.

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"

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.

They leave more meat for me, so I am fine with it.

Someone might, for THIS reason:

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!)

Well, since I'm married to a veggie, I guess they're okay. I was married to an omnivore for 23 years, and a veggie for the last two (same woman).

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.

Nope. California rolls generally do not have fish. They are typically made with Rice, avocado, cucumber, and sometimes sesame seeds or nori (seaweed). California rolls, in my experience *I've eaten sushi on 4 continents and in at least 10 states* have never contained any fish or crab (vegetarians do not eat fish, and anyone who claims to be vegetarian, yet eats fish, is in denial. Fish is muscle fiber from an animal. They are better off being honest and saying they don't eat mammals. I guess the term 'vegetarian' is one of convenience in such cases.)

Anywhoo,

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.
