McDonalds.

Did I just hear right? I wasn't really listening. They are allowing you to ring up and book an appointment to go behind the counter and let you watch the whole burger-creating process?

Good idea? Bad idea?

    You heard right!

    Not sure whether I heard right, but is it only one day that you can go? I'll bet they make an extra special effort just to make themselves look good.

    I'd have thought that if they let you do that they'd have to kill you right after, so you wouldn't tell people to stop eating there.

    When I was little you could have birthday parties at McDonalds and they took you into the kitchen to see how it was all done. It was really quite popular for parties but then that was the 80s! lol

    Oh shit. Now all the meateaters here need to start feeling some guilt.

    Let me just edit the thread title to say "What's your stance on eating meat, AKA; the most savage and brutal act possible"

    People need to eat to survive. Is it as inhumane as the gazillions of animals killed every day by other predators? Or perhaps I'm reading wrong and your quarrell is with the way which the animals are kept and drugged up before they are killed? In which case, I suggest the human race stop fucking each other and creating babies for 5 years, that way there will be a much less demand for meat and people can eventually go back to beating the animals to death with rocks and cooking them alive like in the middle ages.

    What an eye-opener.

    I would never step foot in a McDonalds anyway personally. Also I think that it should be banned. :mad:

    ya know, i really dislike vegetarians.

    especially those that take the 'ohh but its soooooo sad, those poor fluffy lambies are being killed just so that you can eat' stance.

    god, take a look around you, it's nature, everything eats everything else to survive.
    when people tell me off about eating meat cos of that i tell em to go and look at all the predators in nature, how they kill to eat. they generally shut up after that.

    anyways, mcdonalds is dirrty in any case and i'd be scared to look round the kitchens!

    Im a vegetarian and i never preach to anyone about eating meat. I love the taste of meat - I just choose not to eat it out of my own principles.

    However one thing I always vowed by was that whenever I became pregnant, I would discard my principles for the health of my child. And I did.

    That doesnt make me a bad person, it doesnt give vegetarians the right to call me a traitor, and it doesnt give meat eaters the right to call me weak in my beliefs and point the finger saying 'we told you so'.

    Everyone, in my opinion, is entitled, and quite rightly so, to eat and drink as they please, without being put off by the judgements of others. I'll eat what I please, and you can eat what you please. And everyone's happy.

    ^ Tbh.

    If I were to provide only a few examples of how life is not so pearly white, I would still be here for longer than it takes to eat a nice juicy pork-chop. Admittedly, the little lambs can look cute, but not so near as cute as they look on my plate with some freshly chopped veg (steamed, of course).

    It annoys me when people try to make me feel guilty for eating, and once more; enjoying a piece of meat. I was a vegetarian for over a year, I went ill. I lost shitloads of weight, I didn't have enough to protein grow well (I was like, 12), and most of all - it seemed like all food tasted like shit and eating had become a chore. So, I popped down town and ordered a nice big pork sandwich, gravy dripping down the sides. £1.60: Bastards.

    but can you honestly say that every single vegetarian you've ever met has had a go at you for eating meat?

    im slightly offended by that fact that a lot of people think that i, as a 'vegetarian', even care what you're eating. because frankly - i dont!

    I know i cant 'change the world' and the eating habits of those who reside in it simply by becoming a vegetarian. and to be honest with you, i never intended to. and that is exactly why i never tried to 'convert' anyone, or held anything against anyone for eating meat.

    i dont see what the big deal is.

    In complete honesty, a guy who I see as one of God's better people is a vegetarian; and he doesn't make a bit of fuss.

    The big deal comes from the fact that some, not all, some vegetarians seem to aquire the mentality that they are in the right. Just because killing is seen as a savage act. What annoys me and also a great deal of people I know is the high level of ignorance many of them carry. They make more fuss about whether I eat some offal from a turning stick on a Saturday night than they would if someone was to get murdered.

    I've never been in a situation where I haven't been able to get a vegetarian to shut the fuck up by saying the word 'shoes' or 'coat' or 'handbag' - And this was before reading and being able to refer them to Maddox's article.

    I worked there for a short while and the food is treated reasonbably well. It's the kitchens in resturants and pubs where I often worry. At least in Mcdonalds you can see pretty much what going on.

    And it's a good thing we don't all stop eating meat because pigs and chicken would soon go the way of the dodo.

    Yeah, when I worked in a bar/restaurant it totally put me off eating out! But then what you don't know doesn't hurt you! Unless they do something really bad obviously, cos then you might die of food poisoning or something :p

    Human is an omnivorous species. This doesn't mean that we MUST eat some of everything, but that we CAN.

    My business studies teacher (whos degree is in Hospitality Management) told us that you can request to see the kitchens at any food establishment at any time, by law. If they refuse, you should wonder why-so why is McDonalds having a special day?

    I dislike the ood there, personally.

    Instead of eating meat, we should eat vegetarians.

    Just let me slaughter them :hyper:

    Seriously, I work in a kitchen, and I once spat out a greener on a tray of sausages :yes:

    People don't just eat meat for the taste, it provides you with nutrients that vegetables and the likes can't give you. I know someone who's a vegetarian, but eats chicken.

    I am certainly a meat eater, but I also make efforts to eat meat which comes from animals which have had a reasonable life.

    People wont eat battery hens eggs but some conditions for meat arent far off that.

    Plus of course veggies can become very high and mighty but they neglect to realise that farming is th biggest poluter of water ways. Just because you only eat veg does NOT mean you arent harming the enviroment.
