Ponder This

| | Comments (1)
So I had lunch today with someone that was "mostly" vegetarian, with the reason being to reduce the whole carbon footprint on the world by not eating meat and avoiding animal additives in food wherever possible.  Ok fair enough, perfectly valid reasoning.  So he'd ordered a vegetarian dish, but the restaurant made a mistake and brought out the dish with a meat filling.  So he sent it back.  This seemed illogical to me.  Food was going to be wasted in this scenario and an animal would have died anyway.  By sending it back to get another dish made up is actually *increasing* the carbon footprint on the world, as well as causing an animal to die for nothing.

It just puzzled me, that's all, what the logic for that decision was...  Any vegetarians/vegans out there want to comment?
I need some opinions...

I'm trying to decide whether or not I should sell my wedding dress.

Reasons for keeping include:
  • I'm sentimental that way
  • Stu likes the idea of me keeping it
Reasons for selling include:
  • it'd never get worn again
  • it's been used for two weddings, and could easily go for a hattrick
  • it takes up valuable storage space in a huge box
  • it's likely to just decay in storage anyway
I really can't decide.  What do other people think?
