Do you find hunting cows difficult?
True story. Was in Pearl River hunting with some friends. The dogs were pushing a deer from north to south. I see a large brown patch of fur, dogs were all white and brown and black, but I didn't fire, it was big. A buddy of mine about 25 yards south of me fires 3 times and dropped a wild cow... We still tell that story when I see him. I'd say hunting a cow on a farm would be extremely easy. Personally I walk up to it and fire a round from my ruger .454 right between the eyes. Fairly positive it would be dead and I'd be messy.

I was hiking in Colorado on my Dad's property up on a mountainside. I was carrying a firearm just in case I came across a bear or something that might try and kill me. As I was making my way through to a clearing, I hear the bushes start to rattle and this big brown thing comes stumbling out. I lifted the firearm up and was ready to fire at what I was sure was a bear charging me--turned out it was a cow that had gotten away from the grazing herd.

What if we created giant indoor farms for the cows and then trapped the farts which would be used to power the entire facility?
I had this idea over a decade ago but why can't we make super huge sunglasses for the Earth that are in space between us and the sun? I understand that it needs to travel like a satellite with many course corrections and we need to prevent damage from space debris but we can lower the temperature on the planet doing this idea so that I won't have to suffer sweating in Nola like I do.

Completely agree. Made a Beyond burger for lunch. Delicious! I'd still like a meat burger every now and then, but I'd be fine having 90% of my burgers/beef not being real meat (still want a nice filet mignon a couple times a year...also I haven't yet tried to substitute real meat in meatballs for spaghetti). It's really strange to me so many people are frightened by such an idea. If it tastes just as good or almost as good, wouldn't it be great to not have to kill animals while also being at least a little bit healthier?

Meat consumption is becoming unsustainable for many reasons.

There's a nice casual look at it on the Netflix program, Explained:

It's not healthier for you to eat these fake meats so that's my objection. Once they make it healthy AND it tastes just like meat while being at a fair price is when they can take my money.

Same thing with vegan hamburgers. You forfeit the name hamburger or burger when you don’t use meat. You should not even be allowed to use the word meat in the title or conversation. It’s a veggie sandwich!
I understand some of what you're saying but push back against vegan burgers? It tells you the form that the vegan is taking, in this case burgers. The fact that vegan comes before it tells you that it's not a real burger so why the backlash against that part? Makes no sense to me. Turkey bacon? Not real bacon. I don't need them to create a new name for what they are trying to do which is provide a substitute for the real thing. The contradictory name tells me everything I need to know.

How is turkey bacon not real bacon?

I saw a thing today for vegan “apple nachos”.

No. Nachos are made of tortilla chips & cheese and can have other stuff on top of them. Sliced apples with vegan sweet stuff on top are not nachos!!

Yet we all do. Farts are all about timing. Dutch ovens vs bubbles in the tub vs when doing a presentation in front of 50 people.

Of course, cropdusting in the store is an art form.
Many years ago I was at work at Gordon's and my friend Swampbear farted in one of the aisle's and left. I wound up bringing a customer into that same aisle about a minute later and it stunk like hades! She didn't say anything but I bet she thought I did it. It was impressive being a minute out and being so strong.

It tells you the form of the fake shirt you are eating. It's a substitute for the real thing. No one will know what applecho's are supposed to be so put vegan in front with the real name and you know what's going on.

Cannibalism is the new vegan.
I just figured it out! If I'm on death row I will demand human and I'll volunteer to eat myself! I'm gonna die anyway so why not try human? You can take a leg from me and cook me a roast out of it. Hannibal really made cannibalism look delicious.
