@ Jxp,

RE: asian countries. I think I read something about the meat supposedly tasting better if the animal is prepared(cooked) alive. Disturbing, to put it mildly. I'll let Pac have his thread back, now. Probably not what he had in mind when asking the question.

    It's perfectly ok to give your point of view Time*Treat. One of many ways  I learn is by observing all points of view and kinda stirrin it in the pot, if you know what I mean. The rituals of society such as one example you state about the boiling alive is obviously traditional. I suppose most people know that doing this is not right, and in some extreme cases like mine...evil.

        Not everything on the menu at fast food joints is deep fried. At Wendy's they have baked potatoes and salads and a lot of other places also offer salads and other healthy alternatives. Since you don't eat out and you admit that, you might want to do your research before proclaiming that all the food on the menu at fast food resturants as "swill".

        Come on! It is all mass produced produce and is meant to be cheap.

        Who knows how much of that lettuce is bleached and what chemicals the veggies are treated with or what they were grown in.  They get the stuff from the cheapest source and it may have been watered with minning run-off or urine...depending on what country/countries they get it from.

        They may have foods that seem healthy but that is just a marketing manipulation.

        If you really want healthy food for 99 cents buy a pack of good seeds and grow it yourself.

            I think it's more like instead of trotting the animals off en masse to a slughterhouse they take them aside one by one and "pet" them so they don't know what's coming. 

            The theory is when animals are led to slaughterhouses en masse and they know what's coming, they release toxins in their bodies that wind up in the meat we eat.

            This difference in "processing" is one of the reasons Kobe beef is so expensive.  

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                Google -Super Size Me

                I saw the documentary film, directed by and starring Morgan Spurlock. It was educational. 

                F.A.T
                That is me
                But I didn't used to be
                I was hot. I was hungry
                I was loose. I was free
                Then I waited in the line
                For some burgers and some fries
                Super size, that'd be nice
                Take a bite and close your eyes

                Round 2, what do I do
                I can barely walk around
                Jenny Craig, Richard Simmons
                But I still lug the pounds
                Hamburgers, coke cola
                Getting gas from too much soda
                Double double, chunky chunky
                Hope this meal is never over
                The world is round, and so am I
                Big boys, big girls with real big thighs

                (Chorus)
                Super size, super size
                The American way
                Going down, throwing down
                All day, every day
                Super size, super size
                The American way
                Getting fat, getting broke
                Either way you're gonna pay
                Super size me
                Super size me
                Super size me
                Super size me

                  I should have been more specific. The 'meat' I was referring to was dogs and cats, and in that context, 'asian countries' means poor asian countries, which usually excludes Japan. Maybe it's all just vicious rumor. Forget I brought it up. Everyone back to your burgers, there's nothing to see here. Evil Smile

                    Of course I'd eat fast food.  But I wouldn't eat it as often.   Given that I probably or I wouldn't be going to work and wouldn't be in a rush all the time I wouldn't see the need to.  On the other hand I wouldn't eat at Five star restaurants every night of the week.  I would still enjoy the occasional take out burrito from Chipotle or the Burger from Hardees.  It would be fun to go thru the drive thru and after getting my food handing them some money and saying everyone in the store it's my treat and then driving away.  Plus I can't give up sliders from White Castle...YUM!!

                        Well I've been in Viet Nam, Korea and Japan.

                        In Korea there is one breed of dog that some Koreans eat, often it's a ceremonial meal for Buddhist holidays.

                        The meat is called kae gogi (literally dog meat) and it hangs from butcher shops along with the other meats, they don't cook the animal live.

                        And Korea is no longer a poor Asian country.
