QOTD: under the guise of "PC" is this offensive to a certain community? https://t.co/kcnUwahXw4 or is it just funny and harmless?
@kmmetcalf5110 I am vegan and gluten free. Veggies, fruits, beans, grains, potatoes,pasta, nuts, seeds!
@Rippyman so in other words you would like to ignore the ample evidence that meat consumption increases your risk of heart disease. Ok
@NoS_IsTheName watch #Cowspiracy and you will see how this practice leaves so many more people hungry...
@darkyun888 it's actually a box fool of goodies
@jjones6770 glad to hear. Pretty cray huh?
Drunk Twitching at its best! Y'all will want to watch this one. I promise. https://t.co/vctQZL0lhN
About to be live with @MariaHo playing Heads Up on @Twitch http://t.co/CdpPCTD9rD #BattleoftheSexes? Haha
QOTD: does gender matter in terms of poker skill? Does one gender have an advantage over the other? If so, which gender and why?
@Rippyman man A eats lots of meat. Man B eats no meat. Ask a doctor which man has a higher risk of heart disease. You may learn something!
@Rippyman where is your evidence that vegans are getting ill and dying at a faster rate than meat eaters?
@MattMan42O right because you were conditioned that way by your upbringing and society telling you what is edible and what isn't.
@MattMan42O why is eating a dog more disgusting than a pig? What is that based on?
@Kenna_James check out the documentary #Cowspiracy guy risked his life to make the film
@Kenna_James I mean seems bizarre to arbitrarily make pigs food we eat but dogs pets we don't.
@Kenna_James I was raised the same way but I challenged "why" and it doesn't make any logical sense to me.
@Kenna_James based on how you were raised and what society told you yes? You accept that and there is nothing wrong with that.
@GBindel I was raised same as you, but eventually challenged what I accepted and the logic behind it. I decided it didn't work for me
@GBindel there was a time when people had slaves, but only the black ones. Society said it was ok, but thankfully we got Abe Lincoln!
@GBindel in other words, your upbringing and society told you what is ok to eat and what is not. You accept it and that's ok.
@garysmoz @MariaHo but I know everything. Hence I focus on all topics since I am so smart it's absurd!
RT @MariaHo: Forget Saturday morning cartoons- come watch me and my boy @RealKidPoker battle it out heads up tomorrow at 3:30pm ET http://t…
@soozismyname I don't eat any animals. Some cultures eat dogs. Are they "disgusting" while pig eaters have it right? Based on what logic?
@cjamestweets @YogiELP eat whatever you like sir. And also watch #Cowspiracy
@WILD5thSUIT I don't eat any animals. Pigs and rabbits are also pets, but many eat them. How do we decide what is pet and what is food?
@BruceWizayne @BJNemeth if you haven't already, I recommend the doc Cowspiracy @netflix that covers the environmental impact of livestock
@BruceWizayne @BJNemeth there isn't enough room on the planet to pasture raise livestock and feed the current demand globally.
@BJNemeth @BruceWizayne good blog. Eliminating factory farming would require a reduction in meat consumption globally.
@tommy_hashtag no. you need to listen to every word I say and do exactly as I say. Now go write a one page report on what you learned. NOW!!
@BJNemeth here is a link: http://t.co/ozspdyNNwb much better than I can explain.
@BJNemeth exactly. It's not a big deal because we disconnect emotionally from it. I can't explain it as well as the book does
@BJNemeth when people eat a cheeseburger they typically aren't thinking about the cow that provided the meal.
@BJNemeth in order to eat any meat there is a process we have to go through to be able to do it. We disconnect emotionally to the animal.
@BJNemeth 140 characters sorry. We numb ourselves to it being a living creature and see it differently than our "friends" like dogs.
It isn't sustainable for humans to consume meat and dairy at the rate we are today. Cutbacks nec. at the very least. https://t.co/6pgAVYm810
@JackTenClubs @RealAliBryk I don't eat ANY animals. I just don't see how we can justify it being ok to eat pig but not dog.
@BJNemeth interesting book called "Why we eat pigs, wear cows, and have dogs as pets." About how we numb ourselves in order to deal with it.
Let us all know when it's available! #ClearIntention #BeingPresent #GoalSetting https://t.co/h9NzSJXNvA
@BJNemeth wasn't implying you were an idiot. I just find it a fascinating physiological question that many people never think about.
@BJNemeth how do you rationalize that in your mind? You wouldn't eat a deer but are ok with chicken etc? I find it really interesting
@BJNemeth how people choose what is edible and what is not. Curious where you think that comes from for you? It's not arbitrary I assume?
@HalladaJoe @GripsedPoker @nuTTTbar he was referencing tournaments not cash. Think 25% is min for the best tourney players.
@BJNemeth some Asian cultures eat dog. Wouldn't it be culturally discriminatory to not allow them to eat/serve dog meat in the U.S.?
@RealAliBryk but why is eating dog gross and pig not gross? How do we rationalize that?
@HalladaJoe @GripsedPoker @nuTTTbar I disagree completely. I think he needs to be over 25% and a 6% deviation is unlikely after 2300 hands
@CarolineWood68 so if Asians who eat dog opened a place that served dog, would you be ok with it?
@pokerwhispr nope. Watch the documentary.
QOTD: how would you feel about a restaurant in the U.S. serving dog meat? Would you be against it despite eating other animals? If so, why?
