Yes, Sir.

I've heard about that about the lobsters.

Same for beef fajita meat: the skirt steak part of the beef's belly.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skirt_steak

It used to be considered garbage.

After the cow is slaughtered for the prime cuts, the skirt steak is given to the hired help the cattle ranchers hired to help them herd the cows, most of them were Mexican.

Now it got to the point that you go to most restaurants and order beef fajita, many restaurant don't use the skirt steak.

There is not enough of it on each cow to meet the demand of 1000 of restaurants around the country that serve fajitas.

I don't eat a lot of Mexican food and when I do go to a Mexican restaurant, all I ever order is beef fajita.

But I always ask the server what cut of beef they use for their beef fajita and that I will only order it if they use the actual skirt steak.

Many of them give me a puzzled and confused look.

I have been to restaurant that use the cheapest cut of beef for their fajita and still charge $16-20 for a plate with not even 1/2 lb of meat on it.

The prospect of a world without an abundance of...

- Rock music/concerts
- Pleasant women
- Seafood

...makes me sad. frown

There's always farm raised fish.

I've been hitting the shrimp and salmon hard lately, also oysters (it's not crawfish season). Catfish is also a trash fish, love it all (I could live on seafood, but would miss chicken).

My GF loves tilapia and catfish.

I wouldn't touch it.

I eat salmon and tuna (fresh, not in a can).

Fried or blackened catfish is pretty darn good in my opinion.

But speaking of seafood and its alleged scarcity, I thought that was the purpose of the farm raised stuff? It makes sense to me. The more seafood you grow and raise on farms would hopefully mean less of it being taken from the oceans.

Always about "the children", and the people who use them as human shields...

Children themselves, who never emotionally or logically grew up...

People who say all life is "blessed", and then dictate how they should live or die...

But surely I'll be banned for speaking truth....

There used to be a restaurant here many years ago that would take a whole fresh catfish that's been gutted and scaled but still has its head, tail, bone and fins.

they would dip it in batter and flour it and tehn fry it.

It was so good!

Now you go to most restaurants and order fried catfish,

the catfish is a filet that's usually frozen and then thawed out.

Some places go even cheaper.

The catfish is already covered in flour and breadcrumbs, frozen, and then it's thrown into the deep fryer like frozen french fries.

What "truth"?
That non-sequitur of your prophecy of a third world war?

You may believe its inevitability, but that doesn't make it inevitable, or "the truth". Just another doomsaying prophecy.

Looks like it's going to be tilapia for dinner.

I'll just have a ham and cheese sandwich.

I don't eat trash fish.

Barny Miller was fantastic. And Jack Soo was a BIG reason.

Still not PWEC. Congrats to us all. I will try to keep this short. I hope it is to the point.

HumanDrone mentioned the key words "Stewardship" and "finite". I agree, we exist within a finite source of resources. It is our duty to regulate how we consume these resources. I see this as the moral issue, but I think the quick calculations of population area are 2D. Did you consider that urban areas have an elevation dimension that is not calculated in the footprint?

To make it short, we (as a species) have to move to the stars.

My opinion:
Corruption, aka evil, is part of the human animal. No legislation, or psycho therapy can remove this from the animal. We are part of nature. Nurture is limited AND dictated by societal norms. It can not be eliminated and the basic existence is not willing to fight against it.

Even with moral values and constricted expanse, the human animal can not exist upon this sphere infinitely. It is my opinion that we need to continue to reach for the stars. This is the only insurance for unlimited expansion of the race (human!), both population and psychologically. If not, the cost will be the loose of unique and personal growth. The finite globe ensure the death of growth.

OG, I must be that type of person, I almost understand the post.

"always" = least common denominator of the argument.

"Children themselves, who never emotionally or logically grew up..."
That can be a valid counter point. My opinion is off subject, so I do not say at this time.

"People who say all life is "blessed", and then dictate how they should live or die..."
I believe they were trying to point to hypocriticle. ( I suck at spelling!)

If this derails the original discussion, please ignore or delete.

I fully agree with this. It will most certainly not happen in my lifetime but I can see humanity settling on the moon and maybe Mars within the next 200-300 years.
