Agreed.

Just a thought...

Every day, thousands of innocent plants are killed by vegetarians.
Help end the violence.
EAT BACON.

Since we're already talking about blood and plants: did you know that the hemoglobin in our blood and the chlorophyl in plants are extremely similar in structure? The biggest difference between the two is that hemoglobin has a single iron ion in the center, while chlorophyl has a single magnesium ion instead.

In other words: Replace that magnesium with ion, and plants really do have blood!

Another bit of trivia: it's because of the iron that our blood is red, and it's because of the magnesium that plants are green.
"Green humans. Now with 100% less iron, and 100% more magnesium!"

Huh. That's interesting.

Horseshoe crabs have blue blood so I was curious what the difference was there.

Instead of hemogoblin, it's hemocyanin. Copper is what makes the difference.

WTF? I think you need to revisit science class if you think animals turn into plants when they die.
No, I have not seen the Lion King.
Disney movies bore me.

No, but they are eating the food for the animals that they are trying to save from becoming a tasty burger or meal.

Which are living thing and according to many philosophies, religions, and spiritual beliefs have souls in the same way as animals and humans. And more to the point have a crude but functioning circulatory system and controlled responses to stimuli , including pain I may add.

I have difficulty believing that this thread has lasted this long without a reference to Bunnicula.

Just because it is not the life we know does not make a plant's life any less valuable then our own. And to think a vegan has the high ground simply because they are living off the death of something that is not a cow, a pig, a sheep, a deer, a fish, etc is degrading and in my opinion a foolish one.

Eh, anything with less intelligence than a bird is life less valuable than mine imo.
