    I have been to the gym before work twice so far this week. This is a record for me. Yay me.

    I also ate cake that someone brought back from Italy.

    Question: are vegans allowed to use electricity or petrol, considering much of it comes from dead dinosaurs?

    There are fruitarians who will only eat fruit that has fallen from the tree/vine naturally and won't eat anything that has been forcibly pulled from the ground.

    That's one small step away from the "I won't eat anything with a shadow" boss level.

    It's also important to remember that Ecotricity are a bunch of cunts.

    Recently, I have taken to showing vegans the 'Circle of Life' scene from The Lion King and asking why they are allowed to eat plants when animal bodies have decomposed in order to give their nutrients to grow the plants. It makes me popular at parties.

    So it's okay to eat a cow that had a heart attack?

    In theory, depending on how that cow had been treated in its life. How many cows do you see in the wild, outside of a farming environment?

    Am I allowed to chew my own arm off for lunch? I don't want to upset anyone other than myself.

    I mean I doubt Mr L would even notice until it stopped me doing the washing up.

    Serious answer: veganism is essentially about the cruelty of the meat and dairy industries and the ecological damage they do. Nothing is perfect, nothing is faultless but questions like "would you eat an elephant that had a heart attack and died?" misses the point.

    If you own a herd of cows who live a happy life moving from field to field, and put them to sleep humanely does that mean it’s OK? Or would most vegans not eat the beef if the animal did not die of natural causes?

    Old cows do not produce good meat. It would be bogging.

    I think people miss the point when they ask about eating an already dead animal - the fact is that if there is less demand for dairy and meat then cattle farms would decrease. This is beneficial to the environment because it would cut down the large % of methane cows produce when they fart. The high level of methane damages the atmosphere and helps contribute to the global warming we are currently enjoying. THAT'S THE TEA. Or in this case, milk.

    If you put a cow in a glass of coke and leave it overnight, it won't be there in the morning.

    Ah right OK. So, by killing the cow in any form is cutting its life short regardless of how “well” it is murdered. I get you.

    It's largely football related.

    Their owner, Dale Vince, is also the owner of Forest Green Rovers. They are a lower league club who essentially bought their way into the league by spending huge amounts of money that they don't have on inflated players wages, therefore damaging all of the other clubs that don't want to spend silly money to complete. Vince insists that the club is carbon neutral, which usually manifests itself in ridiculous schemes like trying to build a new stadium entirely out of wood and then throwing a fit when the planning people turn him down. He insists on all of their players being vegetarian or vegan and trys to credit this with inspiring their success, rather than all the money. He has a near permanent sanctimonious attitude which actively damages the environmental causes that he is trying to promote. Vince also screwed over his first wife on their divorce settlement.

    I note from Ecotricity's website that quite a bit of this has been toned down now, which may mean that they have got some marketing people involved rather than letting Vince write it himself. It's probably more accurate to say that Dale Vince is a cunt rather than the company as a whole.

    That's ridiculous.

    You can still do the washing up with one hand.

    Serious response: I'm obviously being facetious. Wednesday thread felt like it needed something to debate.

    Heh. Almost nearly posted O RLY to your original post and/or Suomi's, but considered it rude.

    I'm Scottish, we have wildly different definitions of what constitutes rude, boss. Up here, you can be called a cunt affectionately...

    Much like Mancunians and the word twat. Twat can be a term of endearment but the first time I described somebody as having "more gob than a cow has twat" in Hertfordshire I was met with a horrified silence until I explained it wasn't an insult, it just meant they talked a lot. Mr F's hat is affectionately described as the twat hat. Twat can also mean bashing somebody, a lady's genitals, getting drunk is getting twatted. It truly is a word for all eventualities.

    Does anyone know why it would pop up on my iPad to say that someone is trying to access it in London, UK when it is me trying to access my iCloud from my MacBook when I am connected to the same WiFi on both?

    I don't know why but my iPad and Facebook say the same sometimes. I get a message on my phone that somebody's trying to access it from London but when I check it's actually me and I'm in Bolton.

    Yes, are we all interconnected to Old Mavis’s gaff in London? It keeps popping up to allow, or not allow? I take it if I allow I am not leaving myself susceptible to online fraud. I have already had a large sum of money pilfered before due to someone managing to get hold of my details.
