I think this is in every other forum I've ever been in but seems to be missing here. Do you eat meat, or are you vegetarian (or are you an omnivore?)? What are your reasons for your choice?

For me, I sometimes eat meat. There isn't anything I would not eat if it was put on my plate. I might not like the texture, but since I have no taste buds, it has nothing to do with the taste. Probably because I was basically starved as a child, so I never want to pass up food. The only thing that keeps me from buying meat or fresh vegetables is the COST. Too expensive, really, to eat as an every day thing.

This creature has even eaten rats, camels and solidified/crystallized blood of cattle, blended, mixed with pepper, salt and spices

I'm an adherent to the see-food diet. (see it and eat it)

I will eat anything except the juvenile forms of cold cereal and ready-to-eat freezer-to-zapper monstrosities. But since I cook for myself, I'm pretty careful about what I eat. Basicly, I use meat as a condiment, with no more than one or two ounces per day, added to a dish to give a bit of meaty flavor. But I go to Burger Kind for my free whopper once a week, just to make sure my diet is varied.

Eating meat is barbaric. Vegetarians/Vegans are more highly evolved.

For shame. What did that ostrich ever do to you to deserve its fate?

I am an omnivore, I like a bit of everything. My oldest did go through a phase of wanting to be a vegetarian and I accommodated that, I think everyone should be allow to try new things. It lasted until I made my famous ribs on the BBQ
