Yeah, yeah, you admitted your lie, then you immediately lied again, and claimed to be a Vulcan.


I'm not lying for the purpose of deceiving you, or anyone.

I'm trying to make a point. No one, absolutely no one, in the Star Trek universe just thought, hey, let's just shoot the Vulcans because only Humans have Human rights.

I realise that universe is idealistic and doesn't have a lot of political realism but it does show fundamentally decent people who make the right choices.

Contrast that with yourself. Just for a second. I know you won't, because if you did, you'd feel miserable about yourself and change your beliefs, and a libertarian never admits he's wrong.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

You think your blather will have more weight with rational people if you claim to be a Vulcan? Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Of course not. Civilized humans would give them the benefit of the doubt and accord them at least animal rights until they learned more...

Are Vulcans good to eat? For humans I mean?

I believe the universe is a dark forest, which means I think you are wrong again. Kiss

I think it's illustrative. I think it's illustrative of something very wrong with you if you think you can shoot me because we don't bleed the same colour.

You're judging people as groups, rather than individuals. Naughty naughty! You call anyone else dangerous and tribal for doing this.

In limited quantities. You could get copper poisoning if you eat more than a small amount. The portion Hannibal Lechter would eat at one of his hoity-toity dinners is probably completely safe, but I wouldn't recommend the "finish it and it's free" size steak.

In general eating any humanoid could carry the risk of picking up a parasite at the wrong stage of its life cycle. For example, you could get a tapeworm, but in your brain instead of in your gut. This could kill you. Make sure to cook thoroughly.

I think I've made it clear.

If you start killing people, I advocate that you be charged, tried, and if convicted, publicly hung.

Humans come in individual packages, and that applies to civilized humans also. Smiley

That doesn't mean its impossible to talk about civilizes humans as a group. It's not like talking about white people as a group. Some white people are civilized, some are not... Pretty much like any other 'racial' or cultural group.

Would following the dietary laws of the Hebrews/Jews/Muslims be effective?

So the poll has closed and the result is yes. Does this give me rights?

Does it turn out that voting within the community is not a legitimate way to redistribute anything?

By a 2-to-1 margin. It's overwhelming!
