Do you have documentation for this?<br><br><br><br>
And I don't see how it so different from some of the meat products that people eat in the Western world.

haven't heard this. although it's pretty well known that they eat dog in china, despite the chinese gov't outlawing it. it was probably made illegal just to conform more to western culture too so as not to become ostracized. but once again, it's just the arbitrariness of meat - if it's cute and cuddly, don't eat it, if it's not cute and cuddly, eat it.

the duckling thing is true, it's a delicacy in the Philippines, someone brought one to work one day to show everyone because they had them on fear factor a couple of nights before.. ugh

in the western world, there are things that are cute and cuddly, but people still eat them. in my opinion, chickens and ducks are cute and probably soft to the touch (I say probably because these animals have never let me touch them).<br><br><br><br>
i also don't see how it can be alive and screaming without its brains. It seems to me that it would die very quickly.

So, what's "tt"? It seems that's been used for several different words.

i think it means 'that'<br><br><br><br>
chickens are indeed cuddly and soft. a friend from highschool lived on a farm and raised all sorts of animals, including chickens. one of the hens, named Rosie, was such a darling little thing. you could pick her up, cradle her in your arms, play with her waddle, pet her, you could mess around with her wings and feet and everything and she'd sit there and talk and talk and talk. by talk i mean she made this very soft sound, almost more of a coo than a normal chicken cluck, and it was just the sweetest thing ever. i absolutely loved her. not the only chicken i've seen who loved attention and cuddling either. makes you really think 'this is food?'

This is graphic, so don't read ahead if it may bother you.<br><br><br><br>
A documentary on HBO a few years ago filmed several practices in China.<br><br><br><br>
Certain restaurants specialize in dog. They keep them in the back of the restaurant in chicken wire cages (no food or water visible) and guests come out to pick the dog they want to eat.<br><br><br><br>
In China they boil cats alive. Supposedly, drinking the water in which a cat has been boiled alive improves virility. They keep live cats in the backyard in chicken wire cages (no food or water visible), catch them by the neck with metal pincers (they knocked them in the head and beat their bodies to loosen them from clinging to the cage) and put them first into boiling water to remove their fur. Then, while still alive, they are boiled to death.<br><br><br><br>
Outdoor markets sell live monkeys (small species) which are kept hog tied on the ground at the vendors.

First off, I'm not condoning any of this.<br><br><br><br>
Having said that, and I could certainly be wrong here... but it's my understanding that there is likely NO PAIN felt during this practice. I have a tough time believing this, but there are a couple of things to consider. All of us have probably seen some wildlife show where lions have taken down a zebra and have started to feast on it, often eating it alive while the animal appears to be "calm". I once saw one show where the zebra was kinda sitting down looking around while the predators were chewing on its ass, biting right in and ripping pieces off. The zebra never flinched.<br><br><br><br>
I also remember some show on TV I saw that there are a lot of brain surgeries performed while the person is fully conscious, wide awake.<br><br><br><br>
The mind is pretty powerful and so I am wondering if the brain is able to just tune out severe pain, perhaps in a state of shock?<br><br><br><br>
Of course, I'm also reminded of the 2nd installment of Silence of the Lambs... the guy was eating brains from his guest's head while at the dinner table and having a calm conversation.<br><br><br><br>
I wonder how this could happen without pain, but time and time again I see something on some wildlife show that points to the brain being able to tune the pain right out.

i've seen the fertile egg thing first hand when i was in China...i was vegetarian at the time but that made me stop eating eggs. i was scarred for life. i cried when my host dad ate into that thing and this horrible dark body crunched. it was freakin' awful.<br><br><br><br>
in resturaunts in china, they have snakes, turtles, frogs, toads, fish, some small mammals, etc in cages for people to<br><br>
choose so they can eat them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>

im pretty sure with brain surgery, the patient is suppose to be conscious during the surgery, dont remember why. Also there are no sensory receptors in the brain, thus no pain.
