    Has to be more than a mere radius, because wafting occurs in three dimensions, and psychological disturbance, hoo boy. Limitless. Now they got Huckleberry Finn out of the library I guess getting rid of all the meat books is next.

    It occurs to me that the appropriate response should be, “We refer you to the reply given in the case of Arkell v. Pressdram.”
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    "29th April 1971

    Dear Sir,

    We act for Mr Arkell who is Retail Credit Manager of Granada TV Rental Ltd. His attention has been drawn to an article appearing in the issue of Private Eye dated 9th April 1971 on page 4. The statements made about Mr Arkell are entirely untrue and clearly highly defamatory. We are therefore instructed to require from you immediately your proposals for dealing with the matter.

    Mr Arkell’s first concern is that there should be a full retraction at the earliest possible date in Private Eye and he will also want his costs paid. His attitude to damages will be governed by the nature of your reply.

    Yours,
    Goodman Derrick & Co."
    .
    .

    "Dear Sirs,

    We acknowledge your letter of 29th April referring to Mr. J. Arkell.

    We note that Mr Arkell’s attitude to damages will be governed by the nature of our reply and would therefore be grateful if you would inform us what his attitude to damages would be, were he to learn that the nature of our reply is as follows: f&$k off.

    Yours,
    Private Eye"

    I'm guessing the OP may well be a parody/satirical post from a non-vegan...

    What, exactly, is the "importance of a meat free radius"?
    Do they realize that they themselves are made of meat?

    Their use of emojis makes it pretty clear it's having a go at precious vegans..........

    I tried converting my cat to a vegan diet but he found out they don't use real vegans.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    1830 is 1830. There is no PM. Anyone with a military background would know that. Roughly analogous to “knots per hour”. Always hated hearing that.

    I'd get a calf, let it graze, slaughter it, have a cookout, invite them over. What's the beef?

    ^ Get a smoker. Low and slow for 12 hours. The smoke carries the BBQ aroma everywhere...

    for every vegan that is annoying about it, ten carnivores are obnoxious.

    The only way to deal with a neighbor like that is to do a whole lot more of what it is they object to. Maybe invest in a large industrial fan that blows all that lovely aroma in their direction.

    I have a neighbor who claims to be a shaman and insists that the neighbors are quiet and respectful of her meditations. I respond with a wholistic mantra involving nail guns, impact drivers and circular saws. We are not on speaking terms. Mission accomplished.

    Paul McCartney has long been one of rock's most outspoken vegetarians, so it should come as no surprise that the former Beatle tries to keep his tours as humane as possible -- and according to a rider obtained by the Smoking Gun, that includes an all-out ban on animal products.
    The rider, which was reportedly given to venues during McCartney's 2002 world tour, asks that "no meat, or meat by-products" are "allowed to be served in the dressing rooms, production offices, or areas within the 'backstage area'" -- and further stipulates that he won't travel in limos with leather seats, or settle for any furniture that uses animal skins or prints.


    As you might imagine given a star of McCartney's stature, there are several pages of specifications in the document, which details McCartney's love of flowers (as well as a request that the venue use "a reputable florist") as well as his fondness for "plants that are just as full on the bottom as the top such as palm, bamboo, peace lilies, etc." On a more serious note, promoters also need to make time for a pre-show sweep by some bomb-sniffing dogs.
    As the Smoking Gun points out, some of the rider's requests don't exactly square with an animal-friendly lifestyle -- such as the part that asks for 24 bars of Ivory soap, which contain animal fats. But on the other hand, it's also a 10-year-old document -- and as one TSG reader hastens to add in the comments, this particular tour was undertaken during McCartney's marriage to Heather Mills, who allegedly "had a lot of demands that are no longer valid," so take the whole thing with a grain of salt. Still, it's pretty interesting stuff, and if you're entertaining dreams of hosting a Paul McCartney concert at some point, it at least lets you know that you might want to start researching local florist

    People outraged by intolerance delight in waving raw meat in front of people who choose not to eat meat because it is cruel and wrecking the planet. None of us like intolerance but hypocrisy is no less deplorable. When did an arms race ever actually solve anything?

    A bloke in a Melbourne suburb had the fire brigade and the hazardous chemicals squad called out by not near neighbours. He was making very hot, very vegan chilli sauce on his BBQ.

    Karin’s attributes…..?
    Urban dictionary:

    Middle aged woman, typically blonde, makes solutions to others' problems an inconvenience to her although she isn't even remotely affected.
    Karen sues the local city council after they installed a new STOP sign that hides the sun from her window for two minutes a day. The sign was installed after a school boy on his bicycle was hit by a speeding driver and died.

    Karen refuses to wear a face mask for her 5 minute trip to the supermarket during a pandemic. She harasses the workers, asks to see the manager and threatens to sue.

    Karen complains that her favorite parking spot was replaced by a ramp for wheel chairs. She parks her car in the old spot anyway and shoots a vlog about it.
