Does what happens in the Facebook stay in the Facebook?

And 'meet your meat'




Forget about the ad for PETA at the end, that's not the point...

It's just that:

"You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The only thing Facebook is good for finding friends. Beyond that, it's just annoying apps, constant requests and pokes etc..

I dont trust open social networks. They are like a bar with happy hour. Everyone starts happy and friendly then get hateful and belligerent by the end of the night.

There is no complicity in where food comes from. Its just down the streets. People just choose to ignore these facts same as they choose to ignore bigger issues like politics and the environment . Maybe if they ignore it long enough it will go away or take over.

Hi guys,
So nice to have you visit..
3baid,
i am faithful to blogging.. the place where you and your photo remain under wraps...the scary bit is alumni groups wanting to set up facebook accounts. leave me be oh nosy facebookers.

Nibaq,
heheh i am with you...
as for the complicity I think we are complicit...we have the burden of responsibility.
But yes, we definitely choose to ignore, which is why videos like this are there to remind us.
There is a kosher slaughterhouse video i just can't get out of my head.
Look up Jainism, now that is a faith that I respect. So random, yet not. it's late.

a very annoying "friend" on facebook recently saved my pictures off facebook and sent them to a bunch of her friends. her friends actually contacted me to tell me about it. my fault really, only met the girl twice. so when she added me i assumed its harmless to accept. facebook can be kinda creepy. .
