Of course, so why have you (allegedly) 'chosen' not to eat cows and
sheep but do eat everything else?

It's called 'freedom of choice',

Yes, I get that, no question, but *why* have you (supposedly) *chosen*
not to eat cows or sheep in particular? I mean, you must have an idea
mustn't you?


Anyone would think you were lying and you do eat cows and sheep?

I can't answer for what other people think.

That wasn't the question.

That was the answer to your question.

Nope. That's what a left brainer troll would think was a / the

No one is questioning (or interested in) your freedom of choice,

Then stop questioning my freedom of choice.

I haven't, ever. I was asking you to define what logic / decision when
behind your choices, so far it seems you either don't know yourself or
can't answer because you are lying?

That *is* questioning my choice, as well as being abusive.

Aww, poor baby. Now, why did you choose to not eat cows or sheep?

How can I question your choice (as in the choices) when you don't seem
able to explain *why* you (or someone / thing else) *made* those

Ok, so now (in true Spuke style) we must conclude you are either lying
and you do eat cows and sheep or you don't have a clue why you don't.

To make a statement like 'I don't eat cows and sheep' implies at some
point along the line a choice was made, so maybe it was made for you
and hence why you can't bring yourself to explain why.

I'll give you some examples of the specific things I don't (say)
consume and *why*.

I don't generally eat courgette or marrow because I don't like the
taste. I can / do eat them if 'lost' ... don't 'feature' in other

I don't generally drink spirits. I don't really like the taste. I
don't mind some liqueurs (if they are counted as spirits) and don't
drink much wine (when I do I can drink it like water).

I no longer eat any milk, eggs or meat because I no longer want to be
part of the cause of the suffering, exploitation and death that

I have never eaten loads of other animals (like rabbit, Guinea pig,
pheasant, squid / octopus, escargot, monkey, snake, veal, cat, dog)
because my logical inconsistency drew the line there.

See, choices based on reasons, things I can answer because I'm not a
pathetic troll hiding behind something.

Person: 'Spuke, would you like Coke or Pepsi?'
Spuke: 'I don't drink Coke so Pepsi please'.
Person: 'Oh, you don't like Coke'?
Spuke: 'I don't know'.
Person: 'What, you haven't tried it?'
Spuke: 'No, because it's my choice'
Person: Yes, of course, but why OOI?'
Spuke: 'Because'.
Person: 'You are a ****ing nutter mate ... and why are you down there
digging that deep hole anyway ...?'
