Didn't realise it was a vegan essential that humans are not "meant" to eat meat, thought that was just a woo-vegan thing (I found some anti-woo vegans on tinternet, so I know they exist).
I haven't had a fight in months and now my canine teeth are 8 inches long.
Good thing I listed more than one trait eh?
Did I say that? No
I meant the teeth argument/gotcha
I meant whatever the “bingo card” is. I guess you might have been just saying it’s something that comes up all the time, bit I thought you were trying to state the opposite, or at least that it is not “natural” to be eating meat.
The hippo argument is bunk if it is saying that canines are a totally invalid trait to quote because hippos use their canines for fighting.
But on the subject of woo, I think it must be frustrating for a lot of vegans that there is so much of it when vegans have some arguments that are very solid on multiple fronts.
Having a bingo card is much less effort than engaging with people.
it just illustrates the boring and trite "arguments" brought up over and over
B for Brambles
It's a fair point. On the other hand, it means you're speaking to someone who hasn't thought much about the matter, which is a good opportunity to bring out the good arguments.
Wicked I met a fair few people from the states who said that co-ops are really good there because
Is it the same in Canada ?

I find any sort of prosthelytism directed at me is a combat indicator that the perpetrator
1. Doesn't know me at all
2. Is unable to read fairly straightforward negative body language
3. Shortly going to become upset at the direction of the conversation
Lecturing anyone on anything is a fairly unattractive human behaviour, hectoring someone or calling their lifestyle out is just rude
London Pub Goes 100% Vegan and Says Goodbye to The Meat Grinder
Let's see one in Barking.
What does that mean? Vegan restaurants operate all over in the country and not just in namby-pampy posh boroughs (if that is what you're suggesting).
Great. Let's see a *pub* in Barking go 100% vegan, then.
I don't have a problem engaging with genuine folks with genuine curiosity asking intelligent questions.
Disingenuous pisstake trolls are not people, and attempting to engage with can be a bit of a waste of valuable oxygen. Ain't nobody got time for that.
The frequently recycled tired old arguments have been done many times over in this thread and elsewhere on the interwebs. Anybody that is really interested and has a reasonable level of intelligence can easily do the necessary basic research. Can't be bothered with the same old lame old "canines tho" type arguments.
I'm still not getting your point. What is so special about Barking? I can't see why a decent enough pub serving fantastic vegan food would somehow be doomed to failure just because it's in Barking.
If your ever Glossop way you should go to Globe. Brew their own beer (sub £2.50 a pint in some cases) and cheap and simple food. You see variously old boys in there I suspect, not because of what they serve, but simply it's dam good value.
The Globe Glossop
e2a to Ed's post
cos it's in the "real world" with "normal people" seeeeee, gotcha!
Cool, let’s see one, then.
You still haven't explained why Barking is so special and its particular relevance to a discussion about veganism.
From the wasting bandwidth thread
Quite a few of those are perfectly valid, tbf.
Indeed. What about the poor cows eh? And the plants ? Didnt think of that did you? Editor- His point is about class.
I suspect it's another yet another lazy regurgitation of the old "white middle class privilege" chestnut that some of the critics trot out when they're low on justifications.
Please don't forget that veganism hasn't always been a white, middle class thing | Metro News
That really is good value (assuming its any good obv).
Oh look, another vegan pub has opened up.

In "a prime spot on a hipster artery", no less.
