I'm a vegetarian too, but that's just wrong. :o I understand when people eat meat, it's not like I can change them. But what your roommate did was going too far. -_- Oh, and tell him to stop supporting PETA. T_T

I am a vegetarian, but I am not a weak build, I actually won a wrestling competition, but if I EVER did that to some one, I would LET them beet me to a pulp, and I would never apoligize so I could be beaten MORE. Seriously, I hate vegetarians who give us a bad name. Especially PETA.

since when does a person need to SAY "please don't throw my stuff out" to prevent a housemate touching something that's not theirs? Basic etiquette says you DON'T THROW OUT OTHER PEOPLE'S STUFF.

I'm a vegetarian too, but I'm not the type that makes meat-eaters feel horrible about themselves. That would be as bad as those who impose religion on you. I hate those assholes

In reply to #18 (comments seem to be randomly placed today): Your english teacher is an idiot that doesn't sound qualified to teach infants to finger paint. Both words have roots in greek and latin, evolved in to their modern forms through middle english, and have absolutely no relationship beyond that. The only thing inherited from Hippocrates in an etymological context would be the Hippocratic oath. You can look up the etymology for either word anywhere online for a breakdown of the original meanings if you've never studied latin or middle english. Equating Hippocrates with hypocrisy sounds like the sort of thing a religious fundamentalist or new ager bent on questioning the application of modern medicine would come up with.

I'm glad you're like that I think peta is WAY too radical just like abortionist. I do believe that using animals just for their fur is wrong. But don't tell me i can't eat their meat I mean at least when you eat the meat the whole animal is being used and not going to waste. When people kill for fur then and dont eat the meat it's a waste

Great idea! Probably not a lot of meat there though. lol To me, it was your property, you had the right to store it in the 'fridge, roomate disposed of it (illegally), so roomate owes you for the food. End of story.

At OP, You could do what all these other people suggest, or you could do something better. 1.) Get the money back after explaining he just ruined your sisters wedding. 2.) Take the trashcan full of meat and put it somewhere warm and leave it until after you have your money. 3.) Take the trashcan full of rotted/maggoty meat and pour it over him as he sleeps. 4.) Bask in the glowing warmth of revenge until he pursues litigation against you for psychological duress (unless you live in Portland, NY, Seattle, NH, or CA you should be fine).

...Pretty sure it was a spelling correction not an etymology lecture. The previous poster had spelled "hypocrite" as "hippocrate". Nice rant though.

he thinks being a vegetarian is the pass to everything... including being an arrogant jerk who doesn't know how to respect ppl that lives in the same household. if I were u, I'd buy a bunch of fur and a giant fur blanket and put all in his or her room and change every product in the house to animal tested... and make them a soup with every single kind of meat u can possibly find in it... after they eat it , tell them u r a murder and watch them puke their lungs out

I'm a vegetarian but I don't go around preaching at people. I don't tell people off for eating meat. And I certainly wouldn't do what OP's housemate did! Not all of us fit with the stereotype. Get it right.

Either way. But I would get back at the room mate. possibly covering his entire room with blood from the local butchers. Or throwing out his computer/tv/something expensive and leave a note like "You're evicted." I'd also make him pay back the money, or re-buy the meat.

he shouldnt have to tell the roomate anything. the roomate should respect the other people in the house and not touch the food. not everyone is a vegetarian and he needs to realize that.

Yeah, if meat is murder, then why would he throw it away? If you're out of meat wouldn't that make you just go buy more, essentially killing even MORE animals?

survival of the fittest.... doesn't mean it has to be a fucking muscle on muscle battle. That would be survival of the physically fittest, or physically strongest. That is a dick measuring contest. We survive because we are INTELLIGENT enough to create the weapons that keep us disconnected from danger. We are the fittest because we are the smartest. The ultimate Irony is that our compassion for the animals is not shared (perhaps because of a disparity of intelligence). Go find a big ass Kodiak Grizzly and you see if he shares your same compassion for your life.

It doesn't matter that we use tools to kill, it's still survival of the fittest. Orangutans use sticks to pull ants and grubs out of wood and we don't invalidate their survival skills. What I'm trying to say is that survival of the fittest at its very core isn't about how you kill something, just that you won.

I think I remember hearing about someone who tried to apply survival of the fittest to modern day society. He was a German, named Adolf, he conquered most of Europe, but I think he called it ethnic cleansing. When people try to use survival of the fittest to justify modern day policy BAD THINGS HAPPEN. No, I'm not saying that all non-vegetarians are Hitler, just that survival of the fittest shouldn't be used to justify hurting something. Survival of the fittest means we're able to kill animals, not that we should.

Weaponry is an extension of intellect and ability to manipulate. Just as two is better than one so is using others to create the weapons. People became dominate because of this. Therefore it is still survival of the fittest. Your retort is flawed because you failed to understand the meaning of "fittest" which refers to being able to best adapt and coupe to an environment and does not refer to muscles. Humans became omivours to be able to eat both meat and vegetables.

please stop generalizing vegetarians. He didn't do that because he's a vegetarian he did it because he's a jerk who doesn't respect other people and their decisions. and survival of the fittest has nothing to do with an advanced society because we don't need to actually kill to eat.

#231 what you're saying doesn't really makes sense,, you might want to re-check your definition of "survival of the fittest" we're the superior species now due to our intelligence and ability to make and use tools, if we went out killing animals with our bare hands like you say, it would only mean we're back at being cave-man.. and yes the whole idea is that we don't have to put ourselves in danger in order get food. plus our digestive system made to digest meat as well, that is probably not for nothing. animals eat animals and we are animals. Ps: I bet you killed a whole lot of plants with your bare hands ^^

They create oxygen. In eating plants, you would in fact be destroying oxygen, because the less plants that exist, the less C02 (that we can't breathe in) gets converted into oxygen (Which we do breathe in).

Destroying oxygen? Wait, that's not even there? You do realize most of the air you breath comes from algae right? Even if it did come from the plants that humans need to eat it wouldn't matter, homeostasis would balance it out. That only happens though if that's how it's supposed to be.

You should either do one of the following: A. Put "Tasty, Tasty Murder" on the sign or B. Make a new one saying "You're killing our Oxygen!". That should really piss your roomie off.

A complete lie. Think. The more vegetables are eaten, the more will be grown. In their lifespans, they will absorb a hell of a lot of CO2. And if everyone eats meat, then the cattle will carry on ingesting ridiculous amounts of grass and having the rainforest cut down for land to rear them on.

Why not plant some trees? They take in a hell of a lot more CO2 and generally have much longer lifespans than vegetables. Plus they are pretty and make shade.

So by your logic any vegan or vegetarian that bitches how "meat is murder" outside of a grocery store or butcher shop is wasting their time since they "honor it's sacrifice" Nice try. That's funny, they do it all the time at those places. It seems you see them in those two locations a lot more then animal shelters and farms. Try and actually think before you talk.
