    Pretty good explanation on why we do not build up immunity to flu.

    It has been up since 7 Feb. Don't think it will be blocked now.

    Beijing - For the past two weeks China's police have been raiding houses, restaurants and makeshift markets across the country, arresting nearly 700 people for breaking the temporary ban on catching, selling or eating wild animals.

    The scale of the crackdown, which has netted almost 40 000 animals including squirrels, weasels and boars, suggests that China's taste for eating wildlife and using animal parts for medicinal purposes is not likely to disappear overnight, despite potential links to the new coronavirus.


    Traders legally selling donkey, dog, deer, crocodile and other meat told Reuters they plan to get back to business as soon as the markets reopen.

    "I'd like to sell once the ban is lifted," said Gong Jian, who runs a wildlife store online and operates shops in China’s autonomous Inner Mongolia region. "People like buying wildlife. They buy for themselves to eat or give as presents because it is very presentable and gives you face."

    Gong said he was storing crocodile and deer meat in large freezers but would have to kill all the quails he had been breeding as supermarkets were no longer buying his eggs and they cannot be eaten after freezing.

    I once read a post that said: Do not judge me because I sin differently to you.

    Even thinking the statement is profoundly true and worthy of consideration and application, I still think "fuckers, dumb shits" when I see those markets and read those menu's. Is there no respect for anything in that culture? Is the world just a food source.

    I then have to remind myself that there are vegetarians and animal lovers that see me transporting a once spiritually beautiful Kudu - now dead - now food to me.
    Do not judge me because I sin differently to you.
