Am I just asleep and having *really* fucked-up dreams?

the animal might have simply escaped but more "sinister possibilities" had not been ruled out.

Previously the only time I'd have associated llamas with anything even slightly weird was with this.
"What happens during Llama Therapy?
Each llama Therapy and Visitation session lasts for one hour. The llamas are transported to a facility where a hands-on therapeutic experience takes place. While Peruvian music plays in the background, residents are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities with the llamas. These activities include face-to-face (nose-to-nose) contact, touching and stroking the animals' wool, hand-feeding the llamas, hugging them and walking alongside them. A very special part of Llama Therapy includes individual and room to room sessions."

(Heard about it on HIGNFY and didn't quite believe it until I looked it up.)

This sounds like something out of the twilight zone...

Khoo said she used to eat shark's fin soup, which is often served at Chinese weddings. However, she stopped after she and her new husband became divers and were made aware of the sharks' plight.

What did she think it was made from before? ~baffled~

I think we can assume she knew what it was made of, just not that sharks were that heavily endangered. After all, people still eat cod.

Anyone remember the Rice Crispies adverts with Craig Charles?

I don't think that's pathetic - using just a small part of an animal and then not even killing it quickly is wasteful and unnecessarily cruel, I think.

I don't see that as being pathetic at all - it's a terribly thing to do to an animal. It hadn't occurred to me that people wouldn't know that's what they did, which of course it should have.
Braindead today, sorry.

I get a similar reaction, FWIW. I think it's OK to kill animals and eat them, but something about the wastefulness of this gets to me.

Someone had to say it...
