[url]http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/hsn/20030523/hl_hsn/sars_update__may_23__2003[/url] The just of it:
In Hong Kong, meanwhile, scientists say they may have traced the source of the SARS virus to [red]civet cats, considered a delicacy food by some Chinese[/red], the Associated Press reports. The civet cat is a nocturnal animal that isn't actually a true cat. It's in the same family as the mongoose and resembles a small raccoon or weasel. Civet cats are hunted in Asia for food and to make perfume. University of Hong Kong scientists say they suspected the SARS virus jumped from animals to humans, but they weren't certain which animal was the source of the disease. They say civet cats should be raised, slaughtered and sold under careful monitoring to prevent disease outbreaks.

It is exacerbated by the "mass transit" herding and close quarters of the populace.... Another reason I refuse to ride a bus or the metro on a daily basis.....

As long as it isn't a true cat, I have nothing to worry about! [booze]

These savages are kill/Eat cats and now we have SARS. Man why didnt Eisenhower have the balls and just nuke them back in 1953. Too bad it was just all talk just to end the Korean War.

I was watching a thing on the history channel yesterday. It was called History Now or something, they were talking about SARS and mentioned a possible animal to man connection. Either by eating or sexual. Similar to AIDS coming from monkeys, by one of the 2 above stated ways.

Nuking them wouldn't have done piss. They're like cockroaches, they would just scurry into holes in the ground and breed there only to reemerge later.

If they would have nuked them back then I probably wouldn't be here right now. So I really hope that was a poor attempt at humor. As for killin'em all, why not try starting with me, I might have a little surprise for ya.

Not pissed, I just think it's silly to be talking about wipping out a culture because you don't agree with what's on their menu.

I'm not saying I agree with any of the above sentiments, but shouldn't there be a common sense limit on what is edible? What do Americans eat that Chinese don't, and that can be attributed to "cultural differences" ? I'm talking about the primary food source, not a restaurant or chain. I can't really think of any. We seem to have a much more conservative menu than most countries do.
Link Posted: 5/23/2003 10:20:02 PM EDT
Dudes...The Chinese eat all kinds of animals. My Chinese associate got back from visiting home(CHina) and told me the Zoo story. Next door to the alligator exibit, there is a restaurant where you can order dishes made from alligator. They are palnning to open a tiger restaurant next to the tiger exibit soon. "We eat whatever we want in China, the cat, the mouse, the snake. Ahhh...it is delicious."

Fucking doorgunner84. I should kill your ass for talking about my fiance that way bitch. First off its not a cat (dumb ass, It's kind of like that thing you where raised on, what is it? Oh yeah raccoon ). But yes some Chinese eat cats but then again not the general population.
