    There are so many claims that scientists become vegetarian, so I was wondering who on these forums are vegetarian or similar. Therefore, I made a poll...

    All of the scientists I know are normal, they all eat meat and vegetables. I don't know where you saw any of those claims.

    By the way, you have no selection for a normal diet.

    Why is there no option for cannibalism?

    I think that's covered by 'meat eater'.

    That would fall into the other category.

    "Meat-eater" should be "omnivore".

    Yeah, thanks. But how do you edit a poll? I want to change the meat-eater to Omnivore (normal diet - meat and veg)

    I eat anything that looks hot and interesting :tongue2: I always have preference for meat though.

    What would I be considered if I eat vegetarians?
     
  12. Jul 18, 2010 #11
    I always thought it was mainly liberal arts and art majors that become vegetarians.

    Lol, that would be healthy-cannibalism...



    * Even though I just associated vegetarianism with health (a joke), this thread is not there to discuss which diet is better or more healthy, I only made it for interest sake.

    No they become vegetables.

    Wow, it looks like most of you are omnivores, was actually expecting a little bit more diversity.

    An omnivore, by definition, is diversified.

    Cannibalism falls under humanitarianism.

    After all of these years thinking that you were humourless... :tongue:

    I have always described myself as a strict carnivore. The only pleasure that I derive from eating is in knowing that something died violently so that I could eat it.

    This thread, though, presented me with an epiphany. My previous opinion was somewhat more limited than it should have been. In the space of about 3 seconds, I redefined myself as an opportunistic omnivore. I have enough Irish blood that potatoes are honorary meat, but that doesn't make me a vegetarian.
    (And before some smart-*** makes a joke about me eating a vegetable and then picking my teeth with the spokes, I don't want to hear it.)
    The basic rule is that if it can't outrun me, it's food. (And the term "me" includes high-velocity rifle ammunition.)

    I'm not humorless. Maine humor is pretty dry, so it doesn't hit you right away. Not well-suited to the 'web, I'm afraid. There was a brief exchange on PF chat tonight about playing Russian roulette, and I offered my Glock 20, with a disclaimer that it wasn't *quite* as random as a revolver.

    Which is the option that covers omnivores? And is there truly such a thing as a "fruitarian"?
