    @kempodisciple, even if we don't get to train, I'll drive down to wherever you are and buy you a drink. And who knows, maybe we can finagle an hour to do some Martial Arts.

    @Gweilo, I haven't made any Kalua pork yet, but some of my friends make it really well. They even hunt their own pig.

    One of my fellow cops at the airport. His dogs corner the pig and he goes in and kills it with a knife. Like his father did, and his grandfather before him. And like anything else, them pigs are meaner than anything when cornered.

    Really nice, fresh Kalua pork he makes.

    Is the pig prolapsed or bleeding out?

    It does look a bit, "you got a pretty mouth" type of moment.

    Shouldn't think that makes the meat taste better though, the stress releases hormones into the meat which make it tough. One of the reason for humane slaughter isn't moral but that calm, well treated animals taste better!

    The reason that I have been a vegetarian in the past 40 years because I strongly believe that human being can survive without killing. If we eat the root, we may kill that vegetable. But if we just eat the leaf, the vegetable may feel pain (not sure this is true of not), but it won't be killed.

    I think you have misread my post, I'm not saying there aren't moral reasons for not eating meat, I'm saying one of the reasons is not for moral reasons.

    Look up articles about the wild horse herds in the western US, bison in Canada, wild buffalo in Africa, and there are many more. The populations have been adversely affected by over population from loss of predation. Inbreeding and crossbreeding is leading to some heinous results.
    Responsible harvesting of animals is a Very, Very good thing.

    By your logic, war can reduce earth population which can also be a good thing.

    I'm a person this life. But my last life could be a pig, and my next life can be a chicken. :)

    IMO the best teachers will teach you to be humble. A hard but important lesson for a young man. My Kung Fu teacher enjoyed teaching me that lesson a little too much.

    It is hard and brutal to wrap your head around but, yes. Mankind it a destructive creature. Overpopulation and the irresponsibility of people can/will kill this planet, assuming a natural catastrophe does not get it first.

    One can avoid a lot of problems if he/she doesn't eat meat.

    Eating meat: links to chronic disease might be related to amino acids – new findings

    Meat-rich diets are linked to a range of health problems, from heart disease and strokes to type two diabetes and some cancers. People who eat diets high in meat have also been found to live shorter lives.

    Which are delicious. In your next life, do you have any preferences for how I cook you?

    One can avoid a lot of problems if he/she DOES eat meat, too.
    Balance is key. Any diet that says "don't eat any x" is less healthy than a diet that balances all the foods we evolved to eat.
