If intuition were a good basis for morality, that question would be relevant.

I was just trying to help Menacing Spike see Роберт's point, I don't actually agree with it. Now that I look at it again I may have misread where Menacing Spike was missing stuff.

The comparison to human children in this case is irrelevant for me due to distinctions I draw in between animals and humans.

Euthanasia should be a basic human right, if you ask me. I'm glad my mother and one of my grandmothers had the chance to end their lives with a modicum of dignity, while they could still talk and move around somewhat, instead of the bedridden husk my granddad died as.

Lethal self-defence depends wholly upon the circumstances. There are too many nuances to that to get into here, but I can imagine situations where I would have no problem with lethal self-defence.

How is this relevant?

Morality is normative statements, so a good basis for morality is one that gets you normativity. Intuition doesn't, because there is no reason I should do what you think is right.

Mosquitoes don't really have the same level of sentience as, say, cows do.
Besides, I don't kill mosquitoes for fun or pleasure, I do it because I don't want to get bit by them. The motivation is different: pleasure (taste of meat) vs. prevention of pain (mosquito bite).

No. No. The absence of evidence is not the proof of absence. The absence of evidence is absolutely evidence of absence. Because logic.

If P(meat rejection being a massive thing | research supporting it) > P(meat rejection being a massive thing), then by definition P(meat rejection being a massive thing) > P(meat rejection being a massive thing| ~research supporting it). It's not very strong evidence, but still evidence.

First off: No, I don't kill mosquitoes or wasps or flies or spiders or anything else if I can help it.

Secondly: I draw the line at self-preservation. Yes, if I have a tapeworm, I'm going to get rid of it, because I value my life over its. However, I have no need whatsoever to kill animals for food. I've survived perfectly fine for ~8 years without meat.

What the shitting fuck? I live alone, and I'm usually out at work. There is no way I can possibly be using that much leccy. My meter does roughly agree with their last reading, so I guess the meter must be faulty. Does anyone know how I can prove that?
So is the kWh used nearly doubled, or just the cost?

Have you made any changes to devices in your apt/house in the past month? AC on more often? Computer not sleeping regularly?

A better question is, how do people who don't pirate music justify using take a penny, leave a penny systems?

Which is to say that "people who do X" doesn't biject to "people who do X because Y". It turns out that questions can be wrong.

Out of curiosity, how can you type coherent sentences while incapable of figuring something that simple out?

Would you be against using a wig made with real human hair when synthetic hair is available? No, that's fine.

Would you be against buying and eating human meat at the grocery store when other food is available? Yes, that's messed up.

There are so many facets to the meat eater -> vegetarian -> vegan thing. I wouldn't say it's the same as sexuality, but it's probably comparable.

My gf eats meat, but won't eat Danish bacon because of the way (it's been reported at least) that pigs are treated there, compared to in the UK. She will only eat free-range chicken and eggs laid by free range chickens. Happy eggs, they're called.

So basically, people's morals give them no-end of different reasons and levels of what they will or will not eat.

Well, ice cream is secondary to the cheese thing. I *really* like cheese (the fact that most commercial cheese isn't even vegetarian doesn't stop me).

I do go free range for eggs, but I've read that it's pretty questionable how much more humane it really is (from what I understand their lives are still 99% shit). But I tend to think that it's better to do what little you're willing/able to rather than take an all-or-nothing attitude regarding things like that. I don't understand the argument of "if you don't go all the way you shouldn't do it at all".

Every time I'm like "I wonder if anyone is ranting about something interesting", I get on here only to find such intellectual gems as:

Hm, acronym for that is MAC. Coincidence?

Edit for an actual rant:

What inspires some old men to be creepy fuckers? I'm in Randall's parking lot with my gf (who is 21), and this guy in his late fifties/early sixties just walks up to us and says "Are you two brother and sister?" (we look nothing alike). When we say that we're dating first he asks if our parents approve (wtf?), and then he says to me "you have a beautiful girlfriend" and introduces himself to her and shakes her hand. We left right after that.

So, you know how, when you Google a technical problem, you are likely to find a thread on a forum of someone having the same problem, and the question isn't answered?

Well it's quite a lot worse when the only reply to the thread is made by the administrator of the forum, and says "See that search link? try using it." Fuck you administrator. Not only is searching not that easy, it's also not easy BECAUSE OF YOU.

I'd say it is a moral thing, just that it's not explicitly stated. She believes it is not moral to eat what she believes is cute.

As we're speaking real ranty rants, here's my 5 cents:
I'm not able to learn something that took most of my colleagues only four days to learn for maximum grade. I wish I could get it over with already, I'm getting sick and tired of not being to comprehend it as quick as I believed I would (hearing all their stories). It's been over a week and I ain't even half-way there yet. :roll:

I guess. I meant, like, it's not 'pigs are so intelligent, it would be wrong to eat them' but 'pigs are so cute, I don't want to eat them'.
Anyway, semantics I guess.

(Red) Remembers exactly where it was placed.
- Introduces a person Y. Removed it from its hiding place to another location, unbeknownst to the culprit.
(Red) Expected the cupcake’s removal. Witnessed it, in fact. Did not know person Y’s name.
- Gave it to person Y indirectly.
(Red) Did you forget? Never gave it or sold it to any person after taking it.

(The real truth) Imagined a cafeteria. Received a call from a teacher to meet with them. Left the table. Did not return. Neared the end of the lunch period. Took the cupcake without the owner’s permission. Threw it into the trash (thus, relinquishing ownership). Witnessed some unknown custodian remove said trash.

Beware your blue truths. Appeared to be a thief. Chose not to dispute it with red. Became true. (May have changed with further questioning, however. Is not easy to write without revealing too much.)
