WTF of the day

a movie about a man living in the midst of tel-aviv, who has (at least) 32 wives and 89 children and the authorities are unable to do anything about it.

No, I don't think people should move away from Siberia, work more or have less kids. It's a perfectly good place to live in and I don't see a reason to vacate it when the world's overpopulated as is.

So, what you're saying, is that a certain level of inconvenience, while short of the "survival" guideline, is still sufficient as an excuse to use animals as a source of labor/food/body parts. Right?

I'm having a hard time saying "yes", but - yes. One should take care of one's own first.

Now it's just a matter of degree. If I am sexually attracted to cats I might find it extremely inconvenient not to fuck them.

But again - that's just being mean to another creature to satisfy a craving that isn't all that vital.

Living in Siberia is also a non-vital craving. Actually, given a choice between sex and living in Siberia I'll choose sex any time. We aren't on vitality any more, you've ceded convenience :))) And abstinence is terribly inconvenient.
