  1. Althopugh ROBINS to chirp. AND this is a spring release. A robin drake, perhaps?
  2. My eggs all have great big holes in them. ^.^ Can't wait til they hatch!
  3. I have also heard that the Kobe cattle are given alcohol as well. Is that true?
  4. Me neither! The coastal ones are very pretty so far, though.
  5. YES! Caught two of each kind... thanks TJ. I am excited to see what these hatch into!
  6. Doesn't that depend on how rare the dragons are supposed to be?
  7. I have an update! Update: Gifted to peterpan3112 Dragon: Countess Mina of Montague's First Offspring
  8. Bumping this question since it seems it got missed. ALSO, very interesting ideas, Bacon and Pie. * Been stalking this*
  9. Something more on-topic to the thread is something I have wondered about. I have heard some people argue that in some of the passages in the new testament, where it appears in the English to condemn homosexuality and is interpreted that way by some, that that is a misinterpretation do to a lack of equivalent words in languages. What I have heard goes that BASICALLY in Roman times ( when the NT of the Bible was primarily written) it was fairly common for masters to expect sex from their slaves...regardless of the slave's orientation or preference on the matter, and that this was at least partly a 'dominance' thing... for lack of a better way to describe it. As a slave, you had no real right to consent or refuse and basically it would amount to rape since the slave didn't have any choice. The theory I have heard is that it was this, a sort of sexual abuse of slaves, rather than an actual consensual relationship, that is being condemned in those passages. Hope this attempt at explanation doesn't fail horribly. I was wondering what everyone's take on that interpretation is.
  10. This... is actually a good question. I have HEARD of Kobe beef, but I am honestly not sure what is true and what is rumor.
  11. *Phew* That should give me a few days to raise the eggs and hatchies I have. PROVIDED I can keep from grabbing more in the mean time.
  12. Anyone know when the new release is supposed to be?
  13. I honestly wish there was more awareness of Asexuality. People in general are very ignorant about the idea, or that has been my experience. Seems like most people are very quick to assume that such a thing isn't even possible, or that you have a sad and depressing life if you don't ever have sex. Or worse, that there must be something WRONG with you somehow because you don't want it or don't care about it. Even though I believe I may be one myself I didn't even know it was a thing until after I had graduated from COLLEGE. It was incredibly awkward at times as a teenager realizing I was different somehow from my classmates and NOT having the slightest idea why. I happened to stumble across the concept of Asexuality on the internet and was like... "Wow, that sounds like it could be me. I am not alone." I had heard of the possibility of being gay or lesbian or bi but NEVER of the fact that there are others out there not interested in sex at all, or interested in it with only a person they have a a relationship with already. Seriously though, it seems like there is something wrong that I never even heard of it. Sorry, rant over. Those are just some peeves of mine.
  14. I guess as i see it, if an egg I breed autoabandons, talking of rarer stuff here, well, it sort of gives the newbies a chance at something they might have a hard time getting otherwise.
  15. TJ is no doubt laughing at all of the April Fools chaos he has created.
  16. Yes, being aware of where your food comes from is a healthy thing; something that I feel may be more rare than it used to be. Seems like there is more ignorance about exactly that sort of thing with fewer people being directly involved in raising the plants and animals intended for food. My mom grew up on a farm and her family were by no means rich so... we tended to waste very little food, and even now I try to avoid wasting it whenever possible. In that respect I understand what you are saying.
  17. Oh, NO! I am pretty near scroll locked! I hope it doesn't happen until some of what I have hatches!
  18. LOLS! You, ma'am, are a Montague hoarder. I am quite certain that no Capulet would dare go near your scroll. All your vampires would attack them in a second. Ah, but I am just kidding of course. I meant no offense. Seriously, though, if no one else wants the little one, you may certainly have it.
  19. Got a description Pending for my Montague. ALSO! Newsflash... Countess Mina of Montague properly bit her first designated victim! Click Here to see! Anyone want to adopt it?
  20. I will grant you that that is true, Seven. Perhaps I should have clarified my statement better. There certainly are other reasons to raise cattle, or chickens either, than for meat. Milk, which you point out as an example, is a big one in my area of the world. What I meant is that for those animals that are used for meat that was often the only reason they were raised. The cattle raised for milking are typically different breeds than the ones raised for meat. At least, that is the case in my country. I understand it may not be that way everywhere. The same goes for chickens, I think... the ones raised for egg production are a different breed than the ones raised for meat. So yes, what you say is correct, but for those cattle that are raised for meat, or chickens either, that is the main reason they were bred. So... technically we both have valid points.
  21. Do I eat meat? Oh yes, definitely, I do. My family aren't really vegetarians, it just isn't how we were raised. THOUGH at our house we typically eat more chicken than we do beef. ( Which is sort of a special treat). I am sort of an omnivore, if the truth were told. Put a steak or piece of chicken in front of me and I will eat it, but by the same token but a salad or a potato in front of me and I would just as easily eat that, too. I have studied a fair amount of Biology and figure the human body is suited to a diet of BOTH. Besides, strictly speaking, the main reason that some animals were bred at all was, quite truthfully, to be eaten. If it weren't for the fact that people eat steak, there would be a lot fewer cows in the world because there would be no reason for farmers to raise them. That said, I have no ISSUES, as such, with vegetarians, I just couldn't be one myself.
  22. Lets all give a warm Count Project welcome to Countess Mina of Montague.... yep turned out female.
