    Yeah I do agree that it is pretty sick.. And Tristan, I can verify the third account about the venison, but my experience was with a dog. You practically walk in, go around to the back which has a huge compound housing dogs. You choose the dog you wanna eat, they bring it out, tie it to a tree by it's back legs and pummel it to death with a baseball bat. Suppose to tenderise the meat... I walked out once they tied the dog to the tree. And it was in Vietnam. I do think that we as Asians have some kind of a sadistic side to us when it comes to food. And its not only the Chinese that are doing it. The Japs do the same thing as well... I feel that eating is one thing but the process of rearing and butchering is also as important as well.

    There has been some mention of the issues with commercial farming. Yea, the video was (pretty damn) gross, but perhaps we shouldn't be so ready to point moral fingers when we (knowingly or unknowingly) enjoy meat raised and killed the way that it is in our commercial farms.

    How many of you actually have experience in butchering live animals?

    Or you really think its ethical and humane as long as you buy it off supermarket in a nice display package?

    I have butchered live poultry before. And I butcher live fish quite often.

    I've butchered my fair share of fish and never scaled it while still alive, nor dunked it in boiling oil while still alive. That crosses an ethical line in my book. Everyone has lines, to each their own....but that's where mine is.

    What's done in this video to the fish is not humane in any way shape or form. If you want to eat a snake while it's muscles are still contracting after you've killed it, or the same for any animal...fine, not my cup of tea but I don't have a problem with it.

    Don't want to turn this thread into a special olympic of 'barbaric' but generally accepted cooking techniques within each culture, but the clip is far from the worse in culinary arts.

    I do agree though, that eating things alive is pretty cruel at todays standards. But I have seen much worse in butchering and the cooking process.

    Well, I haven't heard of Japanese doing anything like this for a long, long time.

    I see that you refer to Japanese people as "Japs". May I call you "Chink"?
