PETA has taken a stand against one of the most popular tourist attractions in Seattle - the fish market at the Pike Place Market that tosses salmon.


SEATTLE —

PETA has taken a stand against one of the most popular tourist attractions in Seattle - the fish market at the Pike Place Market that tosses salmon.

PETA heard that the American Veterinary Medical Association planned a Pike Place Fish Market demonstration at next month's convention at the convention center.

PETA sent a letter to the association saying people who care about animals are appalled fish would be treated as toys. A spokeswoman for PETA in Norfolk, Va., Lindsay Rajt, says veterinarians should show compassion.

PETA hasn't heard from the veterinarians.

An assistant manager at the Pike Place Fish Market, Justin Hall, says workers there respect fish because it's their livelihood and they take pride in having the best seafood.

You've got to be fucking kidding me. I heard about this on NPR today, they suggested that the tossers throw PLASTIC fish instead of dead ones! For fuck sake, THEY ARE DEAD ALREADY. PEOPLE EAT THOSE FISH, THEY AREN'T "TOYS."

Fuck you, PETA. Keep your retarded paws of my Pike Place Market.

Well, this is a problem that provides its own elegant solution:

Involve PETArds in the fish-throwing rites - when they protest, fucking throw fish at the sonsabitches.

If they leave at quit, win. If they keep coming back, WIN.

I declare that every red-blooded Seattlite shall eat at the little grilled fish sammich place run by stoners one additional time per week until this crisis has passed.

You have to be trolling.

They don't just toss fish around for the tourists. They have a largish space compared to the other stalls at the market, they toss the fish just like the guy that tosses a bag of peanuts at the ball game: to get it to the customer without having to walk all the way over there.

It just happens to be entertaining for people to watch others buy their fish.

Tell me something Steve, what is wrong with PETA writing a letter to the Vet Association? Its not like they've car bombed anyone. Its a letter dude, chill.

Whether the AVMA takes PETA's opinion on board is their decision, but PETA (or its members) still has the right to voice that opinion. You seem to be painting PETA and animal rights activists as a bunch of intolerant die-hards, can't you see that you're becoming what you hate?

That's why it's a rant of mine, not an "OMG we must do something now" thread.

Domestic terrorists mostly. You heard me. No doubt whoever mass produces tofu wins a lot of dough from these fanatards.

Every once in a while, Leisel says something unsilly.

It's not that animal rights groups suck, it's that PETA specifically sucks. As in, protests (with assaults and heavy vandalism) outside of SPCA shelters because the SPCA puts down animals, then opens it's own shelter for abandoned animals almost immediately starts to euthanize the animals it has rescued because it turns out that, hey, caring for hundreds of animals that people won't take is fucking expensive.

When it comes down to it, humans only have 'moral value' because we place it on ourselves in the first place. We live in a society that makes a distinction between 'Humans' and 'animals'. Every speicies does it, to some degree, its fairly natural i think. In the long run neither of us really matters.

Exactly. Although since we have assumed we are the proginators of moral systems it then moves onto what we should consider to have what value as an entity. The ability to feel pain is not universally experienced equally.

I understand that a spectacle can increase demand, increase supply, and theoretically kill more fish, but what exactly does PETA expect even if this goes better than anyone could hope?

What is gained by shutting down a fish market? Are all the salmon going to stop being caught because the fish tossers aren't around anymore? It's a business gimmick, nothing wrong with that. No more than huge outdoor BBQs at fairs - though I would hate to be around either.

Some time ago they protested that a town not too far from here called "Fishkill" change its name for their obviously stupid reasons. What they failed to understand is that killing fish has nothing to do with the Dutch word 'kill' which means 'stream' or 'brook'. All they wanted was another few moments in the media's spotlight.

No. Just no. If you are really caught up in some respect issue over guys throwing salmon over the counter at a fish market, you just, plain, fail. Period. If you want to get on the bus at some point that makes sense, like say, before the salmon are caught, if you want to endorse their right to swim upstream and get eaten by bears instead of me, fine, that at least makes some sense, but once you've killed, gutted, and sold something as food, I don't really think tossing it five or ten feet is really a significant contribution to the fish's "loss of dignity"

You're demonstrating the lemony bitchiness of veggy-ism:

"I don't care if YOU eat meat, I'm not AGAINST eating meat, I just happen to personally have more respect for life than that. you know, in other words, I'm more moral than you, but I don't blame you for being to weak to give up the bacon, not everyone is as strong in their principles as me, I don't see how that's sanctimonious at ALL why do meat eaters always want to get INTO this when I tell them I don't eat meat?"

Who?

There's a lot of people dieing in Africa because they can't get access to rice, let alone meat, and many of those who can get rice get sick, poorly develop and/or die from horrific malnutrition because they can't get meat [and thus a signifcant amount of protein, amongst other things]. If you like I could look up which parts of Africa are hit hardest by famine, and then maybe move on to Asia or something. They started encouraging subsistence farmers to grow peanuts, if memory serves, since meat and animal products were so hard to come by.

I shot a pigeon off my roof with a pellet gun this morning.
Fucking disease bearing winged shitrats.

Someone once came to Prabhupada and proclaimed very proudly that they were vegetarian. He said, "Yes, so is a pigeon," and ignored them the rest of the time.

Was he on my roof this morning because I may have shot him through the eye with my pellet gun.

Prabhupada was a bit nuts. He meant well (AND made most of the Hare Krishna recipes apparently) but was a bit nuts.

Hare Krishna food is wicked. Who'da thunk a hot banana smoothie would be so delicious yet relaxing?

There are bits of his cultural understanding I don't agree with, but what instance has you thinking he was nuts?

Just off the top of my head:

His saying that travel to other planets far away will NEVER be possible.
His saying that the ageing process will NEVER be fully understood.
His branding of scientists as "rascals".
His saying that there's life on other planets as we know it without ANY proof whatsoever.

The whacky crap I've heard from some of his followers:

Nobody WROTE the Veda down, it ALWAYS was.
Humanity is millions upon millions of years old (without any proof)
Bad Indian accents.
Everyone can be vegetarian.
We CAN'T eat meat and are herbivores.
My disabilities and bad stuff that happens to people are as a result of being a dickhead in a former life. (VERY treacherous ground).

You were meant to ingest it orally, not anally.

Is that advice specific to Socratic?

I don't wanna know how one ingests things anally.

actually it is possible to ingest some things anally.


alcohol, for example, can enter the bloodstream through the large intestine. Although this bypasses much of the digestive proses leaving a larger portion of the chemical intact. meaning one can become intoxicated or even poisoned by a much smaller amount; making this practise quite dangerous.

Fair enough. The gist of most of that is true (true as in he said it or something like it), so no need to nitpick.
