Um, I thought these were real people.
Why does no one speak of this work of art?
I spent the first 3 or 5 minutes of this movie trying to figure if it was fucking animated or not
man I loved how the tintin movie was done so much
Guys, it was directed by Stephen Spielberg, produced by Peter Jackson and written by Steven Moffat. This movie bleeds perfection.
are you fucking kidding me
uncanny valley, freaks me out.

Not at all. The boy has grown up. Men have a habit of doing that in their 30s and the results are usually stunning.

He grew into his lovely face.

Yo, while I fully advocate the fact that you’re allowed to do what you want to do and believe what you want to do, this is kind of unnecessary?
There are a lot of ways to make more helpful changes when it comes to the rights of animals, placing stickers which only INCONVENIENCES the workers who are already underpaid because they have to REMOVE them. They don’t get paid enough to do their jobs as it is, and you’re just making it harder. And you know if they can’t remove them the product just gets thrown out because they can’t sell something like that to the public. Basic marketing is to never guilt your customers, y’know???
Plus, I guarantee you, as a red-blooded carnivore, I do not give a fuck what some sticker on a Saintsbury’s bacon packaging is trying to guilt me to do. I want my g-dang bacon bits and I want them now.
There are plenty of organizations, NGOs and civil societies you can join and actually work with to better realize the rights of animals, but making a worker’s job harder and attempting to guilt people through a wee sticker is a laughable attempt at activism.
I love how it’s always BABY ANIMALS
Yeah son everyone knows the best way to make a pork steak is to slaughter 10 baby pigs and mash all that meat together for sure
That aside, if you think any food you eat is innocent, you’re wrong. Unless you’re growing all of your own fruits and veggies and nuts in your own backyard, you’re supporting the abuse of someone or something at some level. We bemoan the chicks and baby ducks and piglets that get slaughtered, but do we ever think about the animals who lose their lives to harvesters or turbines? How about the fact that just planting fields of crops for our veggies takes away another animal’s environment?
If you’re buying imported food (that would be most if not all of your non-regional or seasonal crops), do you know where it came from? What about the conditions in the farms for the human workers? How much were they paid? What sort of hours did they work?
You can feel like a big, smug woman slapping stickers onto meat packages, but you’re doing nothing. You are literally doing the opposite of activism. REAL activism is hard work and takes time. It means having achievable goals and steady methods. ”No one should ever eat meat again because it’s horrible” is not a realistic goal. I could give you a million reasons why (meat is a protein many people rely on, meat is, religiously and culturally, a staple of many diets, meat tastes good), but we’d be here forever.
Instead, I think we should focus on changing the method in which animals are kept, raised, and slaughtered. You might argue that there is no way to humanely slaughter anything, but that’s neither here nor there. Animals are slaughtered, and animals will never stop being slaughtered, and that’s the reality we face. As an omnivore myself, I would gladly pay an extra few dollars for meat knowing the animal was treated well when it was alive and died with dignity. THAT is an achievable goal.
Lastly, shame on you. Honestly. The only people these stickers are going to effect are going to be the workers who have to peel them off, because (and I speak from experience, here) people who buy meat already know where it comes from. You’re not enlightening them or telling them anything they didn’t already know. We’re not five years old. We know how our meat got on our table.
Bottom line: I suspect you get angry when people harass you for being vegan. Show omnivores the same respect, and stop harassing us in return. Respect goes both ways, compadre.
Agreeing with the above statement about how useless the above-pictured “activism” actually is. And to add some fact to the point made above me about no food being “innocent” please refer to this article on the Huffington Post about how the “health food enthusiast”-fuled Quinoa boom is flat-out destroying the economy and environment of Bolivia.
Fuck yeah I’ll eat the baby pig
I’ll eat your dog
I’ll eat your whole family
I think this is pretty cool. It’s not forcing you to put the package down. You can buy it still if you really want. It’s only making you aware of what you’re putting in your body. Dead animal flesh. Personally, I think it’s hypocritical to eat meat and say you love animals. If you eat animals you only love some animals. Not all. You wouldn’t knock out your cat with a hammer, tie it upside down, slit it’s throat to bleed out so you can eat it. So why do this to a cow or pig? I think we should respect all life. That is my belief. I am not saying you don’t have to eat meat. It is your choice. I only hope you will make yourself aware of where meat comes from and exactly how we get it. Please watch this. Keep an open mind.
I know exactly where meat comes from. I’ve worked on a farm. I’ve helped raise chickens. I’ve bottle-fed calves who were destined for the slaughterhouse. We even gave them names, and while they lived on the ranch, they had a GOOD life.
Yes, I love animals. I love every animal. That doesn’t mean I don’t think I shouldn’t be eating them. Loving an animal, to me, means you see it’s taken care of while it’s alive and lives its life comfortably, and that’s exactly what we provided for every horse (those weren’t slaughtered, obviously), chicken, goose, goat, and cow that came onto our property. I’m going to take a wild guess and assume you’ve never dealt with livestock, or the husbandry of livestock. You’ve probably never been on a working farm. So, let me lay down some facts.
The animals used for human consumption today are bred for this purpose. They have been bred for hundreds of years for this purpose. The USA is home to millions of cattle and God-knows-how-many chickens and other livestock. What do you propose be done with all of them? Have you ever seen what happens to a pig when it’s been feral for a year? The grow tusks. They turn into boars, and they will attack people,pets, and anything they don’t like. Cattle turn grassland into wastelands without supervision, and in the west, wild horses and burros are always in competition with cattle for food, and that’s when cattle grazing is managed by farmers. What do you want us to do with all of them? Euthanize them? Set them loose?
I dont understand why people always link to videos of slaughter when they want to convert someone to vegetarianism, as if we don’t know what goes on in a slaughter house. No one is saying death is nice to watch. Death does suck, but death in a slaughter house is quicker than, say, being strangled by 10 lions and having your guts ripped out of you and eaten while you’re still alive. It’s quicker than having your legs bit and and torn at until you collapse in agony, and again, get eaten alive. A slit throat is one of the kindest deaths you can give any creature, as it stuns them and lets them bleed out before they’re even aware of what happened. Yeah, it sucks to watch, but that doesn’t mean it’s less humane.
I’ll say it again: Our focus as animal lovers should be that animals are comfortable and well-cared for while they’re alive. We need to abolish some of the factory farming processes we use, although you’d be surprised how far we’ve already come. Keep working at achievable goals for helping animals, and we’ll make a lot of animals a lot happier while they’re alive.
I adore animals, I’ve grown up around farms, worked in petting zoos, had pets. But I also eat meat. I’m allerigc to raw food, meat is one of the few things I can have. (beside junk food :/) And there would be plenty of people out there who have similiar reasons for having to eat meat or cant afford to go on a vegetarien or vegan diet or their bodies can not handle it.
The only thing I have to say to this, is that, are you telling me that Vegans cannot be allowed to say they love plants then? Because how can they say they love plants if they eat them right?
I don;t think loving animals and not being a vegan are mutually exclusive.
