Did anyone remember to watch this on SBS last night (Aussies)?<br><br>
Or did anyone see the Hardline original in the US?<br><br><br><br>
It was SO good. My younger brother (who as just converted to Islam BTW) was walking past to the computer room and he saw the carcasses on the hanging conveyor belt and went "urgh, what's that?" Then he sat down and watched the whole thing with occasional "that's gross..."<br><br><br><br>
At the end I turned around and said "now do you see why I don't eat meat?" Haha <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> He was all freaked out.<br><br><br><br>
The reason I mentioned the Islam thing is that now that he is avoiding/given up Pig products I think veg*ism isn't far away. He's made the connection for faith but i think he can also see my side now. Whereas before he'd give me **** about it.

Dood get cable! Most of the actual TV shows ON cable providers are ****e but the reception is obviously always perfect. We only got it because we couldn't pick up channel 2 or SBS where we are.

I don't think his converting to Islam will make a difference.<br><br><br><br>
They just shift to lamb or other animals that are not considered un-pure.

True. But he is investigating eating something other than meat when my parents/family eat pork which is good I guess. But I mean he just seems more open to my beliefs now that he has adopted some regarding food as well - i.e. neither of us eat gelatine now.

I caught bits and pieces of that program (enough to make me very VERY glad I gave up meat before I saw it) and my folks watched pretty much the whole thing. My Dad wasn't too fazed but my Mom was like, "There's CRAP in the meat?"

I may need to start a new thread with this, but I'm curious. Has anyone ever showed the PETA video (or anything similar) to friends or family? How did they react? I don't want to be too overbearing with my views to my family, but I want them to understand my reasoning.

I've downloaded "Meet Your Meat" onto my computer, but I haven't shared (or watched) it yet. I don't want to be overbearing either ... but I think it might come in handy someday with someone who is on the brink, so to speak, of going veg.<br><br><br><br>
Is there a way to access the Hardline program online?

Anyone seen that Simpsons w/ Troy McClure where he goes to the meat factory?<br><br><br><br>
Little Timmy:<br><br>
"There's this crazy kid at school that says it's wrong to eat meat."<br><br>
Troy: "That's because he's never heard of the food chain. (picture on screen shows human with all animals pointing to it) Come on, Timmy. Lets go see the killing floor."<br><br>
Timmy looks scared and Troy says: "Don't worry, it's not really a floor. It's more of a metal grating."<br><br>
They come out the other side of the factory and poor Timmy is wide-eyed and shaking. Troy says something to the effect of "See, it's nature's way of providing food for civilization"<br><br><br><br>
Hilarious. I love the Simpsons.

He's always been a chauvanist so I'm not sure LOL. Actually we met his friends family - which is why he became involved at the Mosque in the first place - and the sisters and mother are all highly educated, funny, outgoing women. They are really open and friendly. The mosque he belongs to is run by an Islamic faction that is somewhat persecuted in their homeland (Pakistan). I know I'll get the spelling wrong but its called the Aamadiyah Community. They still have seperate prayers and functions but they didn't seem chauvanistic at all when I visited last year.

Me, too. Seems there's something like this, even just a single line, in nearly every episode these days. Love Matt Groening.

LOL But good... I've read a book called <i>Women and Islam</i> which was quite interesting about the whole woman oppression thing (basically opposing it using Mohammud's life and example, also points of the Quran and other things I can't remember) but I have heard of so many more men becoming Islamic than women...

For abbreviations go here:<br><br><a href="http://searchwebservices.techtarget.com/sDefinition/0,,sid26_gci211776,00.html" target="_blank">http://searchwebservices.techtarget....211776,00.html</a><br><br><br><br>
I didn't know there were so many! I think it's possible to speak only in abbreviations....

Definitely off-topic, sorry. But did anyone read his <i>Life in Hell</i> comic strip back in the 80's, before the Simpsons were born?? Great stuff.

It was intersting when I visited there (for a Uni course). We asked a lot of questions about women in Islam and the questions were answered in the same vein - i.e. Mohammed (sp?) didn't advocate sexism etc. But the funny thing was there were NO women there to answer the questions themselves. We had to right a report and fill out a questionnaire which would be passed back to the speakers, so I made sure I mentioned it.<br><br><br><br>
It was so funny. Our lecturer (as most Uni Profs are) is really socially inept and he tried to break the ice when we arrived by saying "heh We picked a terrible time to come didn't we?" - It was - yep - Sept 11. We all just groaned and blushed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
