eventually these will cause me to go vegetarian
We did after the chicken one, although we still eat fishes occasionally. If I couldn't kill it, I probably shouldn't be eating it.
A really sick one is in the related videos: "Extended version of inside the horse slaughter house". Looks like they kill horses with a frickin nail gun. more than one is often required.
It's basically a pneumatic retractable nail, which is more humanitarian than, say, cutting off their heads, but not as expensive as sedating them first.
The antagonist in No Country For Old Men used one.
You're not stupid, yet you act like he or I might not know that slaughtering animals is where meat comes from. That's the kind of assumption that a stupid person would make. Either that, or you're being defensive. Most people are on this topic. It's touchy.
I don't know if I'll stick with the vegetarian-lite thing or not. Maybe one day I'll decide that it doesn't matter how much I like going out for sushi or grilling salmon, and I'll stop eating tasty fishes. I can't imagine not roasting a turkey at Thanksgiving. Regardless, the unnecessary environmental costs of meat combined with the staggering brutality involved in bringing me sanitized little packages of Foodstuff makes it harder to justify. The fact that I can eat well without meat at low personal cost means I don't have to try to rationalize it to myself, and that makes me happier.
And yes, if it was me slaughtering the animal, that would be better. That's not the question you asked (you asked a stupid question), but it should have been.
Maybe I can figure out a way to shoot my own turkey. I would murder a turkey for Thanksgiving.
Maybe everyone can just eat whatever the fuck they want for whatever fucking reason they have instead of defending their particular diets like it's a fucking theological debate.
Can't we just go back to calling each other faggots?
urbanelf you faggot
ALL I HAD FOR DINNER WAS TOFU AND GIN
THATS BECAUSE YOU DONT HAVE A JOB HIPPIE
Well baumer, I don't get it then. Here we have a very efficient and clean slaughtering machine and SolRo says, "eventually these will cause me to go vegetarian." And you say, "We did after the chicken one." Are you two so stupid as to only be vegetarian after seeing a video of what must necessarily go on to produce meat? Why does this video, or videos like it make you a vegetarian, then? I don't mind vegetarians at all, but I don't get it when some people see a video of animals getting slaughtered and say, "eventually these will cause me to go vegetarian." By what process did they imagine meat was produced before they saw this video?
You are a thoughtful person making some incredibly thoughtless posts. Why is that.
I just don't understand. Why would this video compel one to be vegetarian?
To sum it up in a word: Disillusionment.
To unnecessarily expound upon it:
It's easy for people to accept chicken as chicken and beef as beef, and completely consciously ignore the sources and processes behind producing the goods.
Some people won't be able to conscientiously continue to eat the meats (or what have you) once they fully realize what processes are involved.
Some see it as cruel to raise animals for slaughter, usually referencing videos like this or those of the animals being crowded into whatever venue they are dispatched in. This has, however, been going on for a large part of recorded history, just on a smaller scale.
Also, some are concerned more about the environmental aspects: Animal waste entering groundwater en masse, methane from cows, etc. I don't know much about these concerns, though, so I can't say anything regarding their validity.
I get the feeling you already knew these things, though, and just couldn't relate to the mentality. I just felt like typing.

Yes, here is your rent for the apartment. Remember, I am a very private tenant. VERY PRIVATE. I am expecting the delivery of a large machine.

Part of me is disappointed that they weren't alive during the process.
That part was accidentally given control of how many stars I give this video.

The guy who is skinning the sheep's skin off of its legs next to the machine looks over at it every day wondering when they will invent a machine to replace him, too, if he can't keep up with the auto-chop.
John Henry collapsed, his heart burst. As he died though, a smile played out on his lips. He had taken on the auto-decap machine and won.

"Capable of ten bodies per minute."
If I had a nickel for every time I heard that...

These sheep were found guilty by the Committee of Public Safety, and have been duly executed for their crimes against the Revolution.

The voiceover initially suggests its an advert, but I think a full minute of sheep carcasses being beheaded is perhaps unnecessarily illustrative for anyone who's genuinely in the meat industry.

I sincerely hope those sheepskins are going to be used.
