In DP, 10th floor "
Guy: "We got this Jewish kid so baked once, and then we made him eat bacon. He said it was the most delicious thing he's ever tasted"

  1. You do know that the taste of bacon, pork, etc. has nothing whatsoever to do with why Jewish people don't eat it, right?

  2. When you're high and hungry, anything tastes good.

    @1: I don't understand your point

  6. ^Same reason Muslims can't, broadly. Against the religion. Or is it that Muslims just find the pig to be a filthy animal and they won't eat it for that reason? I can't remember, all I know is more bacon for me.

    That is pretty damn funny, though.

  7. ^ It's because the pig is filthy. Also, I think that's the same reason applied to Jewish people.

  8. Part of it was common sense. In the good old days, when they used fires instead of barbeques and ovens, pigs were tougher to cook. Due to their lack of discretion in what they eat, pigs could easily cause illness if not cooked perfectly. Hence, it was safer to just avoid it altogether.

  9. Interestingly enough pigs are actually very clean animals...

  10. #8 is correct. Therefore he wins a free bong hit!

  11. Just to clarify,
    Muslims don't eat pigs because
    1) They are filthy (they are known to eat their own waste)
    2) The pig does not have a neck, meaning it cannot be slaughtered by puncturing the jugular vein. Muslims use that way of slaughtering as it rids the body of all blood whereas if the animal dies of other reasons, the organs seal the bloods within.
    3) The pig's meat is considered to be delicious. Next only to a human's flesh. I don't know the connection clearly here (embarrassed) but it is something regarding next thing to eat would be a human.

    The last point, I brought up just because I heard it somewhere.
    But mostly Muslims (not sure about jews) do not eat pigs because of a mixture of these reasons or anyone of them.

  13. RLs right, though. Pigs are very clean animals. The main reason we think of them as being so dirty is mostly due to the conditions we have kept them in historically and currently which forces them into being such dirty animals. They're also very intelligent animals which is probably the best reason for not eating them. Not that that's stopping me. Just sayin'.

  14. Actually the reason why muslims dont eat pigs is not because they're dirty or anything, its because they can only eat animals that are herbivores.
    Pigs practically will eat anything.

  15. ^They can't eat pigs because they are stuck in a centuries-old rut. There used to be real logical reasons behind it (pork needs to be very thoroughly cooked to kill parasites that life in pigs and avoid getting sick). Now its just another arbitrary religious practice.

    For anyone that either has a strong stomach or wants to be put off of eating meat for a while, go search "pork+coke" on youtube. Guy pours coke on some chops and a few hours later the parasites emerge. Pretty gross.

  16. Pigs would still be filthy even if kept in a nice and clean habitat. They have a habit of eating their and their neighbours feces. Something that you cannot make them stop. Besides, their bodies contain some worms that are not even killed by cooking properly. Pork is considered to be a mai reason for many different kind of cancers amongst other diseases

  17. I'm a Muslim and the reason Muslims don't eat pork is because it was prohibited in the Qur'an, much like the Old Testament... the reason it was prohibited is a mixture of the reasons mentioned above, such as what they eat, the jugular, herbivores etc., so everyone's right... except I never heard of the reason as it being delicious next to human flesh (that's kinda disturbing lol).

  18. @17 I am geniunely curious, can you link some further reading, or better yet, some actual studies to support this?

    As someone who tries to keep tabs on what is considered healthy and unhealthy, I have never seen any reports of this in the literature. I avoid sugar because it is demonstrably deleterious to health, as reported by the scientific community. On the other hand, I have only ever seen this anti-pork rhetoric coming from people trying to justify their beliefs.

  19. @ Noah:

    Beliefs maybe. But although we believe to follow religion without question, answers have been provided to us to satisfy our curiosity.
    Just google about it and you can find it easily enough. Apart from the high cholestrol and arteries clogging up due to pork, these problems make it extremely unhygienic for humans to eat.

  20. if you don't eat food because your fairy tale book or your mohammed, then you are a fucking idiot. Go fuck yourselves. and if I ever hear any of you trying to tell me I can't eat my bacon sandwhich in your prayer spot... I'm gonna whoop your ass. It's not your fucking prayer spot, it's our fucking public space. Go suck your prophets dick.

  21. @ 21 - I am not religious; but I think any intelligent person will agree that the planet needs less of you.

    I hope life brings you its utmost miseries, you ignorant fuck.

  22. I'm sorry, but I just can't bring myself to finding it funny that someone made a person do something against their religion.

    Also, I don't get why the conversation suddenly shifted to Muslims and their beliefs are being debated as soon as someone mentioned them in a passing phrase. I find that disturbing.

    I'm just saying something I don't like about our modern society; I don't mean to attack anyone.
