    Whatever ounce of hope I had for humanity has been stripped.

    OMG. I clicked. First line:
    Well on second thought, it could be worse. I once was was so thirsty when trying to live off the land (much younger then) that I almost drank water (?) from a cows hoof print.

    This kinda stuff makes me wonder why everyone is so down on eating horse meat. Obviously we're looking at much weirder things to eat!

    How do you know everyone is down on eating horse meat? I, personally, have never been offered any to refuse.

    Exactly.

    But why should anyone be offered horse when cows are so much easier to raise? Horses are touchy and a lot more nimble.

    Well, people don't just eat the easiest to raise foods :)

    All of a sudden I have a craving for shark meat.

    From what I understand, you get a lot of shark meat in a McDonald's fish fillet sandwich.

    They snag tons of sharks when fishing for tuna.

    Shark is very tasty. I'd put thresher shark up there with swordfish for flavor.
