2008-08-19 [My Sky's The Limit]: That gave me chills...
2008-08-19 [Deg]: Isn't that a weird story? I read what he had to say about when he wrote it (it came from his collection of short stories called "Smoke and Mirrors") and he said it was the only thing he ever wrote that actually disturbed him.
2008-08-19 [My Sky's The Limit]: It didn't so much disturb me or open my eyes, but...it like...made me think what would happen in the future you know?
2008-08-19 [Deg]: Yeah...it's a weird thing to think about.
2008-08-19 [The Lost Boy]: personnaly, it made me think about all the pretty horrible things we do to animals,i mean if their was a complete role reversal (which why would there be?,, but obivously this is all hypothetical) i think we as humans would feel pretty dam shit, being in the position we put animals in.
food for thought,
2008-08-19 [Deg]: Yeh, I know what you mean and I agree. But...ya know, it's not going to turn me into a vegetarian, either.
2008-08-19 [The Lost Boy]: i was a vegetarian for 8 years, its not actually that hard, i still eat vegetarian food (my mum and sisters still being one) but this sort of thing doesnt put me off eat meat anyway. ok bad stuff happen to animals, but its not like by me not eating meat, that it'll change what other people do, (killing animals ect)
2008-08-19 [Deg]: Yeh, exactly. Some people are never going to stop, and well, what am I going to do. I don't like torturing animals, sure. But I do like eatin them. So what does that make me?
2008-08-19 [The Lost Boy]: i suppose some people could say "a hypocrite" (you know,, the old "it IS cruel to eat animals" argument) but i mean, just so long as were not supporting cruelty to animals, dosent mean we cant eat em. animals get eaten in nature all the time, its just handy were near the top of the food chain.
2008-08-19 [Deg]: Yehhhhh...exac
2008-08-19 [Kaleidoscope]: I have SO heard of this author/writer before. I knew the name was familiar...
2008-08-20 [Deg]: yeah, I love his writing. :D
