    yeahhhhh, no...

    most any time i try some offbeat stuff like seaweed crackers or whatever, it is like: ohhhhh-kay, not totally awful, but still not 'good'; i can rarely choke down enough to be a serving...
    after a few bites of whatever 'super-food', it REALLY makes me thankful for the next plate of ribs i have...
    thanks for being, piggies, you are tasty critters ! ! !

    we simply need to get away from the factory farming model, and go back to the distributed, homestead based-agricultural practices and local animal husbandry...
    zillion gallon poo lagoons for factory-raised chickens, pigs, etc, is UNNATURAL as hell, and causes a whole raft of attendant issues...
    but a dozen chickens on every property or so, a couple pigs every neighborhood, and the poo gets deployed in a helpful manner to benefit the cycle of the farm in keeping the soil replenished with nutrients, etc...
    we have perverted the systems which worked well for thousands of years, and by unnaturally concentrating and raising livestock, we have made an unsustainable, destructive cycle...
    just so a FEW fancy pants can rake in zillions, and we get inferior products and a wasted environment WE pay to clean up, NOT the fancy pants...
