I don’t mean to sound racist here, but what the hell is wrong with China?
As long as they're not eating dogs or cats or shark fin or endangered species...... I don't care.
Once you are born there then it’s ok but for me it’s a NO NO
Oh, I'm sure you have nothing to worry about....
I only buy locally-sourced rib cages.
A heady mix of Confucianism, communism, and capitalism combined with a population large enough to make people the most expendable resource.
Completely different attitude to many things. Like how animals are really just things and hygiene is bullshit.
Difference in opinion, i believe it called. Democratic countries celibrate it.
Froglegs are delicious!
Most of this stuff I get but, orange juice and cooking oil?
I want a box of liquor. And some rice.
Honestly the only thing I have a problem with here is the bikini underwear for me, and I'm getting clipped soon so even those...
So... are we talking about the fact the underwear package says dong or nah?
Yo, I’ve consumed alcohol so I may be wrong, but preeetty sure those weren’t all turtles...
To drink while you fry things. That oil creates a hot atmosphere
Whats wrong with eating dogs or cats
6 is sort of aged sausages, think similar to salami. 9 is actually frozen reptiles not dried. 14 is actually beef jerky bits
Eating companion animals is taboo....... pretty much everywhere around the globe.
Depends on if they are companion animals to that culture.
Some of those turtles were drugs but none of the frogs were turtles
Exactly. I'd never eat a dog because I come from a dog household but I eat horse which freaks people out
I'd like to compare their People of Walmart with our People of Walmart
They steal house pets for restaurants during winter because they think dog meat warms their body. It’s a Fact like it or not.
god mobile loves this CVS receipt of a picture that lags my phone to shit
They sell beef granules and chopsticks in the states too
Yea? Google "Yin Yang fish" sometime. Be warned, it's disturbing.
I've always been curious about horse, but they seem too smart for me to feel good about eating.
Except for the largest country on earth. And almost 1/5 of the earths population.
The underwear model is making the same face I had while scrolling these pics
Museums have to put signs in Chinese saying not to shit on the floor. No other language. Yeah, there's lots about China to celebrate.
You don't have bulk rice?
If you eat meat of any kind and you think eating dogs or cats is immoral you're a hypocrite.
What's it taste like?
That doesn't freak me out anymore than finding out someone eats venison regularly
I eat horse too. I mean, I assume I do. I eat a lot of Ikea meatballs.
1/5 still means 80% think it’s taboo. That’s a supermajority.
Wet my appetite right there
Nah, that's at Blackwall Market
It's unlikely stealing pets is wide spread, dog farms exist and the meat was only about 2x the price of pork when I was there.
It’s still 1,400,000,000 people. Approximately. I didn’t count them all.
WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHYUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDGEEE
Isn’t all rice kind of bulk rice though?
Why are they grabbing raw meat with their hands? Yuck. How many people grabbed your meat before you eat it ????
Some of those turtles lost their shells
Or are we not gonna mention the "large" sticker and the inconvincing package on the male model?
they.. they spelled bacterial wrong...
"companion" is defined differently a lot of places. Some folks think we're disgusting for eating beef. The same way we feel about eating dog
Holy shit I can't stop laughing.
Is it free range cage or caged cage
I'm always ready to talk about dong.
There are vast amounts of people that don’t agree with eating cows, westerners still do.
Probably a promotion of some kid to introduce the brand. Free OJ with purchase. Likely owned by same company.
Naw man, not the froggies, toads and shell bros.
Can you just tell me, please?
A chicken could be a companion animal. If you cared enough
I like to buy mine 5 or 6 grains at a time.
Not they way the chinese prepare them. I dare you to try
You are fooling yourself our Chinese guide said the only 4 legged things they don’t eat is tables and chairs
I eats of the deers.... on the regular...
Fish is arranged so they cook part of it WHILE IT'S ALIVE. It's still desperately gasping for air when they eat it.
Ah, yes the mixed meats that random customers handle with their bare hands in a country where shitting in the street is acceptable.
Because they have no regard for quality. In hong kong, butcher shops have unrefrigerated assorted meats all day hanging there and it stinks
Hair sausage... is that an equivalent to a pocket hotdog?
It’s absolutely gross and i wonder how the fuck do they not get sick eating that
True. No regard for the cold chain for raw meat. And the probably spit inside.
In the US, rice is sold in bags. Any size from 1/2 pound to 50 pounds. We just don't sell it by the scoop (except in a few Chinese stores).
When did plain old ribs become known as rib cages? More importantly what is the OJ and oil for?
Wow... thats cray. The dont even cook it all the way
It's written so pretty, too xD
Not when you're hungry
Actually, they put it in these plexy glass material bins with a lid that won't stay up, as well as a scoop with a cord inside.
They probably feel the same way about the Western penchant for eating spoiled milk (cheese).
Rabbits are a grey area for Western culture. I'll pet a bunny. I'll also eat a roast rabbit. /shrug
Orange juice and cooking oil? Any idea what’s that about?
I'd try dogs and cats.
It's their bs for trade that makes me lose my shit. Dogs like wtf
Do they not know the difference between turtles n frogs? Cuz there's a lot of frogs in that damn turtle bin!
Did that change the ratio of people who think it's taboo?
Great minds think alike
Pretty sure Winco has sells rice in bulk. Probably still better off buying it by the 50lb bag though.
So weird that they sell meat in stores.
With their population size they don't care about health. You live, good. You die, more room.
I mean where does bulk rice come from in the first place? Do the employees just empty out a bunch of 50lb bags into the bin?
Shoots ‘em. Cleans ‘em. Turns ‘em into sausage and steaks. Puts ‘em in a slow cooker for 8 hours with veggies and spices.
If it was raised to be food I don't think I'd have an issue with it. No different than any other farm animal.
Maybe, but they're totally different. Eating spoiled meat products can make you very sick, which is unlikely in the case of eating cheese.
It's a health thing, the citric acids in the orange juice prevent the cholesterol in the oil from clogging up your arteries.
Wow I didn't realize that Atari 2600 had these games. At least from the pixels they could be 2600 games.
I'm not a doctor, but I did take chemistry in HS and know that acids dissolve stuff. So it makes sense.
Cows are about as smart as horses
What the fuck! That is screwed up!
Also alcohol is often used as a cleaner so that's why fried food and beer work well together.
Even if you don't like them as animals, they're commonly treated cruelly (more so than most livestock) and often stolen from pet owners.
No, that’s about 1/5 of the world. Just writing it out to show how many people it actually is.
Come on kids lets root through the raw meat bins and see if we can find something good.
Basically if you drink enough alcohol you don't have to worry about dying from heart disease.
Nothing is especially weird. Local Chinatown has much weirder.
I've seen cows...I've never seen a clever one.
Turtles are frogs. There are no rules.
You can make a pet rock into a companion animal. Your argument is invalid. I respect a culture where it doesn't discriminate food sources.
Eh, but the main sanitary concern stems from the moisture content of meat providing the right conditions for bacteria to thrive.
We have an ancient contract with dogs. We need to honour it. They protected us, lived, fought and died by us. We can't turn on them ever.
Definitely some frogs hopped over from the frog stand.
Now liver disease, different story.
well the vast amount is from one culture. is it not?
I worked at a store that sold bird seed in bulk bins, found a dirty diaper buried deep inside, you give U.S adults too much credit.
Touching meat with bare hands... Yuck.
Like when it’s crawdad season and HEB has them in bulk. You find them wandering around the aisles. It’s a fun game.
She looks like a young Angelina Jolie
Basically look like the asian super market with no shields, here in the bay area.
I don't want them to eat the turtles ... don't know why I care ...
Irrelevant. Commenter is saying other cultures should follow our rules, when we don’t follow others either.
I agree with you, and I’m an avid carnivore from Texas. Would still beer eat dogs or cats. I don’t understand my own reasoning.
You can kill me before you take my beef (in any form)
Yes, people are disgusting. Don't forget you're fucked too jackass.
They torture dogs before killing them because “it makes the meat tender”...vegans, vegetarians &carnivores alike can all agree that is WRONG
You give us shit but y’all sell guns, boats, and bins of loose flip flops. I think we’re about even...
What do you mean, you're getting "clipped"?
Americans dont clean their butt after taking a poop. Whats your point? In order for one to judge, they need to be better. But 'better' is 1/
just based on perception. 2/
Ah. Yes. That. Roger roger.
Oh goodie, another retarded retard who thinks wiping isn't cleaning. Thank GOD for this new ignore function.
Of course. I'm not a peasant.
i know but you made it sound as a lot of cultures in the world do not eat beef. when in fact its one religion with a vast amount of people
Um...the “turtles” photo has frogs in it as well. Thanks Ambien for helping me see that.
Oh that “mixed meat” section definitely has dead people in it
Inefficient and at least in the case of dogs something of a betrayal. That wasnt part of the deal.
I mean, its immoral from an inefficiency standpoint if nothing else.
Hopefully I get born there soon
And so 6,200,000,000 think it’s taboo.
Oh god, beef granules, saw kids popping them in their mouth like candy.
(1)Alot of areas dont have the wide open lands needed for raising large herds of cattle like in the west, making them valuable. In your
Sweet&Sour sauce base is what it’s for. You use that atop the rice with your choice of frog or pig face ,eat w chopsticks in underoos.
for yourself. 2/
...wash back with $1.00 pga .
I have been to China and went shopping at a Walmart out there. I can confirm ALL of this is true! Your list forgot the dog meat however.
As a Chinese, never heard about that.
Why is that meat just laying around...not being refrigerated?
(2) opinion, do you think cows would be more widely consumed if they were more available as they are in the West? Just curious is all
There are other groups and cultures that don't eat beef for reasons that aren't tied to religion. Some cultures used oxen and view eating...
...beef the same way most westerners view eating horses.
Whatever they are eating will be endangered soon...they eat everything. And lots of it
It’s true. Stealing happens but not that many. Especially when you have to fill such huge market.
I’ve seen this too! Saint Bernard farms. They think the adrenaline makes the meat sweeter. They literally skin the dogs alive.
We all know we have to kill an animal before eating it, but not like that.
You never had Orange chicken?
wait horse is split in some western cultures like france and GB. and yes their are others due to personal preference of not eating meat
Do Indians think it is?
I already think i have food poisoning
Room temp ribcages are my favorite!
They don't eat it rare they cook it medium at least. So kills off all the bacteria. Though yes looks gross when you see them touching it.
Then it's not the act of eating them that's wrong, it's the stealing and cruel treatment.
Well it helps that they don't eat anything raw.
Not the same, that ham is smoked and salted. You might as well show a picture of jerky.
I mean, personally, I think it's wrong to eat dogs because of their coevolution with humans. We are both good at reading each other's (1)
behavior and emotions. It seems strange to slaughter an animal you're predisposed to empathize with so you can eat it. (2)
"mixed meat" might be a tip off
I find China so fucking horrifying
crocs, turtles, frogs? -laughes in cajun-
Small dong pews.
Aw, how sweet, people can pick up pet frogs and turtles while they shop for dinner.
No not really, the West (USA) consumes as much meat because it is available and plant diet was hard to find (historically). Not an issue
Keep in mind the dogs they eat ,which few do, are breed for it same as cows , now are they cruel ? I assume yes since China has lax laws
When I was in China, I bought squid flavored chips. I miss them.
There are a couple under there.
Its a developing country with a very different culture than Western society.
Indian culture (Hindu) realized the value and cost of eating red meat and preferred not to
That's, uh, meat that you take home and feed to your dog, right? RIGHT?
So would this be a good time to ask for your credit card number and also bet you that you can't wear all of your underwear at one time?
the ducks prices are quite amazing, usually under 10 USD per duck.
Beef granules...so...bullion cubs.
Those are frogs.....
I have seen frogs elsewhere
"rib cages". You mean ribs. They sell them in every supermarket in the U.S. as well. Just wrapped and sealed.
Do they sell bulk pixels too?
Okay yeah but shark fin soup is fucking stupid. They never eat the rest of the animal.
Thanks for everyrhing
Nothing. If they're humanely killed, I don't care.
I wanna go to one
Yeah but my society isn't a bunch of filth spreading planetary disease. Disrespectful cultural when aboard, fuck them.
"Buh it's tha culture." Nah this shit rancid af.. not to mention human/mystery meat, meat tampering for fatal results, etc
They eat that way all the time, so their body is used to it. In one way it strengthens them, in another way it could be said they then are /
constantly living with a compromised immune system. My in-laws are first generation immigrants (Chinese heritage from East Timor) and we /
Generally I don't let people grab my meat before dinner, only afterwards.
tend to avoid a lot of their cooking just because their hygiene standards, and the shops they buy from, are much different.
ugh I remember asian gorcerystores. I can smell these images. Nasty.
they're eating the faces of pigs, but I'm sure that to the pigs it's no different from me eating bacon.
I️ agree on the dogs and cats side that’s all subjective but not on the shark fin and endangered species, that’s actually fucked.
I live in China and have never seen those crocodiles. Everything else is real. Walmart has closed a lot of shops though,think they gave up.
Am I missing something or do the bins of raw meat seem unsanitary? I mean, I know you'll end up cooking it, but wouldn't it spread disease?
It's the reasons why tourists get sick eating in street carts while the locals don't, they're used to it from infancy.
No. This is way more sanitary once you remember Rafi's loose definition of "pocket
I simply harvest my own
Saaay -- that underwear is my favorite brand: Dong zhu! So much better than the off-brand rip-off: Dong phew...
Vegetable oil and orange juice. Intriguing
chickity china the chinese chicken
You're no fun.
Well most cows arent raised the same as horses. So they never really develope.
I mean its logically sound in a pre modern era. You use a dog to hunt. If youre starving you eat dog
If the survival of a human is at stake. I would kill a dog
Cows have a much more sacred contract with humans than any other species and awe still eat them.
Must be shell-less Chinese hopping turtles mixed in with the rest.
Don't let people eat your meat! Sucking, kissing, licking be alright, no teeth pls. Don't need another Bobbitt running around.
Louis CK has me looking for the duck vaginas
Dog eating occurs outside of china. Pretty sure SEA countries eat dog, and I know from experience Koreans do too
I wonder how Americans stomach fast food/diners like Taco Bell, Whataburger, Denny's, and McDonalds. Gives me the runs.
When there are many of them. Like a collective noun. A murder of crows, a crash of rhinoceroses, a cage of ribs...
Can't have your pudding if you don't eat your meat!
It's more than likely that those pig faces came from the US. US is big exporter of leftover pig meat that others find interesting.
Nope. It sucks because we don't get to rub our hands on raw ribcages and toad butts, so our rice isn't seasoned as well.
I'd be worried about the cats thinking the rice crates were litter boxes.
Interesting, figured they just used the leftover pig meat to make hotdogs.
I had to look twice to see the turtles.
Well if it turns out reincarnation is real..... statistically you're half way there
AND WHAT ABOUT ALL THE UNCOOKED BACTERIA ON HANDS, BAGS, CLOTHES, FACE, EVERYWHERE!!!!??
I'm a grocer. You made my year.
Dong zhu. Just dong zhu.
We do beans like this year round in Texas. Assorted nuts during the holidays.
Funny, in the US all meat must be packed in sterile containers, handled with gloves. China? We open air market that shit. Go ahead, touch.
Beats mixed meat.
just want to mention that that isn't a bikini. also, the turtles are mostly frogs.
I’m so grossed out, frogs?!?!?!
I know!!! All of this!!!
And a cat might shit in it
i love you.
Even in the US raw meat can be sold unrefrigerated as it needs to be cooked to be consumed, killing of any passengers. >
I'm not contesting apocalyptic scenarios. But agreed. Make it swift please.
Train your cow to fight wolves, provide support, sniff bombs, survivors in rubble. It's hard. I wish we all could be vegetarians but...
Did you read the comment you replied to? It dies when it gets cooked.
I have seen videos of them boiling dogs alive to make the meat sweeter. I have always hated the Chinese after seeing this.
I saw frogs ???? *shrugs*
Heard from my Chinese dad, cat is rarely eaten because the meat tastes sour. Dog is fair game though lol
Please this food might be shit but at least it’s not fucking non refrigerated meat or seafood that’s dried on the sidewalk.
Alcoholic day dreams and fantasies began after seeing $.15 liquor
Gives us the runs too
not much what's a dong phu with you?
tastes like chicken, really. Which is why the one of the chinese names for frogs is (lit.) "Field Chicken".
Ew, there were frogs/toads in with the turtles, they'll get warts! (yes, I do know that's not a thing)
Happens here in India too, especially with goat. We spice things to hell so that helps. This is why I stick to chicken. Boring but safest
I'm Indian. Never understood how China eats anything alive and Indians are dominantly vegetarian. We're neighbors and similarly sized
India is developing too and poorer. Yet even eating chicken once a week is taboo in large parts of the country.
I read all these with the melody of 12 days of christmas @OP
Bikini refers to the way the fabric is cut
Yup. Had explosive vomit from a curry on a rickety train in Myanmar. Fun times.
I've had dog. It's delicious, but then again, what meat isn't?
My Korean students were disgusted we eat rabbit because rabbit are cute and only seen as pets.
No. India has the space with 13 plain regions, but not the desire.
Turtle soup is a thing. The county fair serves it every year.
In Taiwan there's even strong believers that non-refrigerated fresh-killed meat is fresher+healthier+more hygienic+taste better. :(
How common is botulism?
Traditionally Chinese food is always fully cooked, there aren't even "medium rare". That's only a concept during cooking, not after cooking.
That's a big chunk of bull. Humans have eaten dogs since dogs became a thing. Dog meat has been widespread over human history.
Asia's concept of humane is the issue with all meat.
Humans have eaten dog since dogs began to be a thing. We have eaten every work animal we have come in contact with.
Korea does this kind of shit with fare more than just dog. Asia in general is lacking in humane treatment of animals
"A few die but the group survives" is the motto of factory farming where animals are born into cruelty for your consumption.
My students in Korea found eating rabbit disgusting because rabbits are cute and seen as pets.
Few and far between. Farming is far more efficient than dognapping.
I are dog in Korea. How is a fact racist?
Awe, I miss Asian markets!
Dog bone has been found in fossilized human poo from 8000 years ago. They have historically been used for more than just work animals.
Not much beyond culture shock. I had dog in Korea and it was delicious.
8000 years ago humans were also a lot more likely to be starving. And domestication and coevolution weren't as far along.
Well, in my opinion, as someone who used to work on a farm with poultry, that's a pretty awful way to kill a rooster.
A majority of the market is sustained by dog farms. Theft is few and far between. Also electrocution is the most common slaughter method
Welcome to Bali. It won't be changing any time soon.
Countless examples of modern dog consumption as well. Just because it became less popular does not mean the practice ever stopped.
Fun fact: 44 states have no laws preventing the personal consumption of dog.
not exactly fun.
And I doubt it's legal to sell, as it's not considered fit for human consumption by the USDA
Rest assured knowing I have no intention of taking your beef. In any form.
Then again, they believe the same about wild game meat so not being able to sell is hardly a statement
Dogs and cats in the US are pets. They're commonly given prescription medication that remains in meat. So it wouldn't be safe, usually (1)
for the same reason that meat from racehorses isn't fit for human consumption. But yeah, man, I really like dogs and I'd rather not (2)
think about slaughtering my puppy, okay? Have a good night. (3)
Easy solution would be to not raise them with dog food diets or certain medication.
That's like saying Peruvians shouldn't eat guinea pig because the ones at the pet store probably taste like shit.
Yu are comparing disgusting chinese non refrigerated meat with pata negra ??? Pata negra is a delicacy made of the highest quality
so you're saying the Chinese like to shit on the floor, but then impeccably clean their anuses?
it's like that old joke of eating meat just so there's more salad left for vegetarians put to it's absolute logical extreme
how's that then?
What if you want 12.7 pounds
Dont get triggered. And read it again. The gist is, 'dont be a moron and judge other when your own house is filled with shit.'
Chinese food is always fully cooked either by boiling, steaming, or (deep)frying (hence the huge jugs of oil in the other pic). It’s safe.
Those turtles are frogs?
It must smell terrible at china wal mart
I'm not sure you have a clue of what you're saying.
They're not bad, actually. But you don't eat the rest of the animal, so wasteful
So pretty much exactly like the beef jerky chew?
I dont really like China. In the sense that they seem to want to kill and maim anything on Earth and eat it...
Yes, your botulism is really just like those things.
What? Do you not wipe your ass?
No it isn't There aren't Chinamen anywhere near here
Fucking disgusting my dude. À vomir. - you could puke eating that how they “prepare” it.
quick search just brought up stir frys
He looks nothing like Angelina
HE looks like a young Seth Rogan
There’s an idea!!
Frogs* not drugs
Sorry, I am not getting your point?
Can confirm that this is all accurate. Funny enough they do have rollback prices AND shark fins.
More like a bitter beef bullion cube.
Ok good so I'm not the only one who noticed that, thank god. Nice to know I'm not the only pervert out there
How can you have any pudding if you don't ear your meat
Yea, they don't have cold food in their cuisine. Hell, even their water is drunken hot
Very rare in those conditions. Anaerobic.
I threw up looking at the rice. People have feces on their hand, the flies then lay maggots into the rice due to its warm and dry condition.
Fucking thank you. It's like these people have never been in a US grocery store bulk section ever. A few of these are reaching at best.
Rice is also sold in bulk in the US, we just put lids on the bins. This shit ain't special.
I harvest the non-believers’ rib cages. Accept the lord Cthulhu or else.
its like...their culture is completely different!
Buy a ten pound bag and three one pound bags, and then throw a few ounces away.
I like how they said rib cages like bbq ribs aren’t bomb as shit
rice grain feed
Chinese people have been put on the same list us whites are on. The "Can't be racist towards" list. No worries!
My birthday present to me this year is a vasectomy
Just remember... if its someones "culture" you can't be mean! Even if their culture is fucking over others culture. Such a silly word game
I would eat a lot of everythng they are selling
So has cannibalism, what's your point?
gestation crate cage cage
the "natural" co-evolution of dog and man as an excuse not to eat them is a bullshit historical argument. People have always eaten them.
Also, my family member survived 71 days in the Andes mountains where the survivors ate the dead. Push come to shove, you eat people.
It is a rather famous story. He authored a book on the subject.
The deal that says we protect you and hunt for you and you shelter and protect us.
And you completely misunderstood what I actually said. Congrats.
That deal ended when humans started making useless breeds. Like pugs or poodles
And? When you have nothing to eat a horse looks delicious
Perhaps it's because what you had to say was less than thought-provoking
When you have plenty to eat a horse still looks pretty damn good especially when eating it is cultural
Yeah I think the net impact of having access to milk and fertilizer has been much greater for mankind than all of the things you listed.
Many 'chinamen' around your area bruv. Theyre the ones getting work done in your country lol.
Having everyone’s hands all meaty sure as hell isn’t though. And cooking doesn’t always kill everything
The refrigeration isn’t (as much) the issue, it’s the handling
This is normal for recently rural communities, it's to check the quality. The meat is eaten cooked, so any/all the bacteria die.
Because it's recently butchered.
There's factual basis for this.
Bad example, but people touch unpreserved meat in Spain too.
This is a rural/old fashioned vs urbanized/developed thing, not a race thing. Would have been normal even in the US until like 1870 or so.
Lololol fuckin lost it
Cooking it to death?
Never been in Spain, I more or less just protested the "Europe". I don't have an issue with touching unpreserved meat, after all, you /1
have to prepare it, but with the hundreds of people touching the same meat - that's not even cooled. And then go and spread the bacteria /2
all over the supermarket, door handles etc. If I ever find myself in China, I'm gonna wear a hazmat suit to go shopping.
If properly processed, perhaps. But not with flies and bugs flying around next to the gutter in a traditional market in a hot summer :(
Bacteria are already in all those places. Your squeamishness is a cultural thing with no real basis in reality.
Flies and other bugs are around it on the farm too. They're not actually harmful even though western developed people think they're squicky.
I'm saying that being from a "developing country" has nothing to do with your predilection for eating anything, including endangered species
Understand. Always- I think not. Also, it's a legit argument. What about symbiosis? Are you open to eating a guide dog in normal situation?
Why would I eat a work dog or pet? Specific dogs are raised for food. Makes little sense to nom on someone's pet truffle pig
But in a desperate situation. More than happy to prize food over the function of work dog/pet. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
No, I live in the US. We have bulk rice here.
haha, well we have it here in Kansas. Probably due to the large Hispanic population. No toad butts or exposed rib cages though.
Lived in Asia, didn’t die. And yes I ate food from street stalls made with ingredients from wet markets. As for the hands: just wash em.
Big country, I guess. I've traveled a fair amount and never seen it. But I don't shop for rice when I'm on the road, so...
I thought that you were talking about the market conditions, i.e. the meat. It isn't like all they eat is meat; it is that images of all 2
that meat that is so different from ours gets the biggest reactions. I am not sure if anything there was endangered.
You're right insofar as squeamishness is often a cultural thing, but I'm actually not that squeamish, like, I don't use disinfectants, /1
or feel dirty if I don't shower each day etc. I AM European. But this is like a real life petri dish, and not everybody who touches that /2
meat is healthy or washes their hands after taking a shit etc. Again, it's less about eating the meat after it has been cooked, but about /3
making it way too easy for harmful bacteria or a virus to find new hosts and mutate faster than necessary. Next we get Cow flu. ^^
You're not squeamish my developed world standards, you mean.
It's china. If someone dies of food poisoning, it just means they're making room for someone less weak.
Fur trade. Auto correct.
Guess it depends. "Squeamish" has probably been the wrong word all along. After all, it's reasonable to be wary of pathogens that easily /1
can be spread all over the place, though I don't think it got a lot to do with the development level of a country.
Being wary of what "can" happen is only really reasonable if there's a significant chance that it actually will happen.
Our botulism is your diabeetus
do you cook your hands, purse, clothes, everything you touch AFTER you handle the meat at the store??
The traditional Chinese medicine market is the biggest reasons for poaching of rare species like rhinos and tigers. I judge them for that
Sorry, I missed the pics of rhino horns and tiger parts in the image.
Well, don't eat "HANDS, BAGS, CLOTHES, FACE, EVERYWHERE".
GAME LOL.... you punster.
