I came here to drink myself to death and reblog stuff.
When the stars are aligned right I may or may not post my drawings and OC.
This blog may contain pretty things, Type-moon, music, art, excerpts from several fandoms of varying sizes and basically anything!
If you wish to go down that path, you can find my embarrassing artworks here.
"Oh really, give me the address so i can check it out for myself and meet these amazing farmers who have figured out how to:
1. get a cow pregnant without violating her;
2. keep her baby with her for a year feeding on all the nutritious mother’s milk that is rightfully his/hers;
3. obtain the mother’s consent that any of her milk may be taken from her for consumption by any other species, humans included;
4. let all the cows live out the terms of their natural lives and die a natural death.”
That should stump the fuckers.
"get a cow pregnant without violating her"
If this argument had any content, it would almost be disturbing.
My favorite are “vegans” who have clearly never even seen a cow on anything other than Sesame Street and yet somehow believe themselves to be experts on animal husbandry. I have several cows, I get milk from two of them, I have never raped any of them even once (once a cow has started estrus she is typically quite interested in yearly/biannual cowsex, unless she’s ill), you don’t take the milk until the calf has finished drinking, it is indeed customary to keep a cow and her calf together for at least an entire year (I’ve kept both calves, so far, because my dad likes taking care of them), and you had better have a signed consent form from your cat or dog to show me, stating their preference for life in your apartment/suburban hellhole over living upon the rolling hills of my rural paradise, before you demand I get permission from my cow to milk her.
Animals are not people. They are not even a little bit like people. Cows have been domesticated for millennia; I have seen no evidence of revolution on their part thus far. Conditions in most commercial dairies are indeed inhumane — but so are the conditions in the sweatshops that produce literally all of our consumer goods, so go fuck yourself. Diseased inhumanity in general is a problem with unchecked, unregulated capitalism, with the worship of power despite the consequences, and not with the concept of domesticating animals.
Jesus Christ, I was looking for a vegetable soup recipe.
so grrm was inspired to write asoiaf in part by his pet turtles so my question is what the hell went on in that tank
