I can't believe you can park blocking a driveway and not see it. And if I can believe that someone can do that then I have to fear for the times they might not see a cyclist or someone on a motor bike or a child crossing the road. And having paid the best part of 5 grand for the drive to be put into the house by way of having to have architects drawings, apply for planning permission and pay the council for the work I'll be none too happy for the attitude from some ignoramous that I can't now use it if it is more convenient for them to park blocking it.


I'll bore you with details because I feel like it: The driveway is off of a main road, the MiL's brother's house backs onto the same road. There are two rather plain high walls either side of the driveway. The driveway itself is more of a hill leading up to the house, if you'd paid £5k for it I would have been stunned at your stupidity and taken pity on you.

I wouldn't have parked there, I don't like it if someone parks near my driveway. In fact, I get annoyed when anyone even parks outside my house. People can be territorial arseholes. But I'd never touch someone's property because of it.

My daughter comes home from college (she's just started) yesterday and I asked her what she had done, eaten etc. She said she wanted a packed lunch tomorrow as the canteen only serves Halal Meat (she eats meat but she's decided she doesn't agree with Halal)
Now, being a multi-cultural city, I understand Halal meat has to be offered. I don't eat meat myself but curiously I have no problem with Halal if this is what their religion decides. I do however find it odd that non-Halal meat is not served.
"It complicates things" said the chef "so we just serve only Halal"
So my daughter and her friends didn't eat from the canteen. I think they're being a bit dramatic but I defend their right to eat non-Halal meat just as much as I'll defend someone's right to only eat Halal meat, I didn't honestly think they wouldn't be allowed to serve an alternative?


Interesting one. I'm not religious one way or the other, but this is one of my major problems with organised religion. When their beliefs and requirements are held to be important, it trumps anyone else's views. And you can't argue with them because you are an anti-religious bigot for daring to take a different view.



This may be my ignorance, but isn't halal meat just a way of killing it (and no bacon - boo!)? Why would it impact on the dishes served, or the taste of them? I can see the practicality argument but from their view perhaps it's also pretty irrelevant because they just make the meals they always do, just with meat from a different supplier. So I'm not sure why someone would refuse it, unless it's an ethical thing wrt the way the animal is killed? I only recall the word 'humane' about that, but that may be misrecalled too.



You are quite right and this is why there is no option. The animals is supposedly stunned/knocked out prior to having it's throat cut. As I explained to my daughter, it's not as if it's writhing around in agony before it dies (I don't think) I also explained that they do this to 1 animal per shipment (apparently) which is good enough to qualify it all as Halal.
As I also explained to my daughter, there is nothing to say you can't eat it, which is why there is no option. Some people can only eat Halal, but there is nothing to say you can't, unless you form your own religious group to say you reuse Halal, then after a certain period of time, coupled with a certain amount of followers, your voice might be heard.

As Prof Moriarty says above, you can't argue without being looked upon as some kind of bigot.

I understood from the way the animal is killed was their problem. I'm not really on the best ground to grade humane ways of killing animals, but halal doesn't appear (from what I know about it, which might be a bit limited) to be at the top of that list.

Though, I'd eat it


Seems to be a lot of argument out there - some biology based (it cuts a specific artery that does stop pain) etc, a lot pointing out even best practice there is compromised by mass production. I was reading one link that referred to a Nicky Campbell show that also notes a lot of chain restaurants (Nandos, Dominos, Brewers Fayre, Subway) and many supermarkets use halal meat without labelling it, so we're probably all eating it (the claim is that pretty much all NZ lamb is halal and a fair chunk of UK lamb) - the latter claim is referenced to a Fail article.

I hadn't come across the 1 animal per shipment thing. But Iooking around a lot of people do make it a specifically ethical argument which seems entirely fair to me. I bet the Subway usage would surprise a lot of right on students who live off the stuff.

My missus hates it if anyone parks near our driveway. As I've explained to her countless number of times, as long as they are not blocking you in, there's fuck all you can do about it. She has put a note on a car before, but perhaps this was the final straw and your mother-in-law copped it full on.

This is bonkers. If you are going to eat food prepared in a special way, at least prepare it in that way. Not one chicken every other Sunday died like that so its okay for the rest of them.

As I've said, I've no idea of the ins and outs of this preparation or any other. Then again, I'm the worst person in the world on food prep. I've been known to walk past a group of students protesting that a shop was selling foie gras, get in there and think... "you know what? I fancy a nice bit of foie gras" and picked some up

It seems like quite a process

quote:


The slaughtering rules (dhabh in Arabic) for Halal, which are based on Islamic teachings, ethics and jurisprudence need to strictly follow the guidelines below:
-
• Our abattoirs are under constant supervision by us
• The premises, equipment and machinery must be classed according to Islamic Shariah (Law) before any production takes place
• A trained Muslim man should slaughter the animal in a licensed slaughter house with the implementation of all the hygiene and animal welfare regulations
• The slaughterman must be a mature and pious Muslim of sound mind who fully understands the fundamentals and conditions relating to Halal slaughter and must be licensed by the Meat Hygiene Service
• The animal/bird must be fed and grown on natural vegetarian diet
• The animal/bird must be alive, healthy and free from any disease or injury at the time of slaughter. This should be certified and checked by a veterinary surgeon
• The animal’s skin or fur and bird feathers must be clean prior to slaughter and free from faeces, dirt or other unhygienic substances
• The animal/bird should be fed and should not be hungry or thirsty before slaughter
• The animal should not be slaughtered in front of other animals and no blood seen so that no stress or discomfort has been caused to the animal
• The animal should be handled gently and individually
• The knife should be very sharp and clean and should not be sharpened in front of any animal before slaughter
• The Muslim slaughterman says the following before slaughtering: in the name of Allah, Allah is greatest (Bismillah, Allah Akbar)
• The cut to be done in the right anatomical position in the throat by cutting the two carotids, the two jugulars, the windpipe and the gullet, but without cutting the spinal cord
• All blood should be allowed to be drained from the carcass
• A specific time should be allowed till the animal ceases any movement
• De-feathering, de-skinning and evisceration can be done afterwards
• Any unlawful meat like pork should not contaminate Halal meat. Separate knives, equipment and utensils should be used for Halal meat


I get the impression that a lot of the opposition relates to the manner in which animals did not used to be stunned but it appears that this is now no longer the case and reversible stunning is now used. Although I would think that if all the above is complied with it would be a time consuming and costly process for mass production.

So, I'm on the train this morning and the person in front is watching Forrest Gump. I'm listening to music. Only I find myself watching FG and it gets to the scene where Forrest meets his son for the first time and OHMYGODIAMFUCKINGCRYINGWATCHINGIT.... It's been a very long time since I last saw it but I knew all the dialogue which made it worse....

You can put any of those words in inverted commas and it changes the meaning.

Oddly enough it just sounds weird if you actually use the correct word and then put it in inverted commas.

Thus:

Would you like to come upstairs and "see my etchings"? is very oo er missus.

Where:

Would you like to come upstairs and "have sex"? is HOLY SHIT WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU ASKING ME TO DO?!

Im feeling a little let down by my own performance up til this point. Ive done well academically but not managed to translate this at all into a meaningful career that I am really interested. I suppose for the time being im busy with an internship but the money isnt sustainable (i live at home anyway, so why am i concerned?) and its not particularly rewarding at all mentally - though it is better than retail.

I spend a lot of time job hunting and I think im doing alright in terms of networking, ultimately though a lot of job specs seem way beyond my capability and i often feel like an imposter applying to them - even after ive convinced myself that I actually could fit that bill.

Does anyone else feel like that? How long has it taken people to find that job they wanted to do in the first place?

Don't worry buddy, I graduated in 2007 and have ended up in various retails jobs ever since. (Despite always vowing I'd use my degree) Mostly because I don't have a fucking clue what I want to do and also because most of the jobs out there are far beyond my capabilities/intelligence.

So you're not alone!

I graduated in 2000 and have never been able to get into a position relavent to my degree.

Also, the guy across from me at work really needs a punch in the face.

I saw Othello at the cinema tonight (one of those National Theatre live shows). It was a really good production, a great cast, well acted... but really fucking boring.

Sorry to my old English teachers As entertaining as it was when everything was wrapped up in the final scene, I was just so bored the rest of the time. I'd still like to see Kenneth Branagh in MacBeth at some point, though.

Now, "All's Well that End's Well," there's an entertaining piece of Shakespeare!

I hope I can appreciate Danny Boyle's Frankenstein more when that plays in a few weeks.

I swear I'm getting dumber day by day. I'm struggling to play simple card games and I'm even giving people the wrong money notes when I go to pay for things. Even writing this I nearly posted "right money notes" instead of wrong. I sure hope I'm just having a bad day and I haven't seriously started losing my freaking marbles.

Get Fat For Cancer - it's got a nice ring to it.

Just reading the Arnie/Sly interview in the latest issue of Empire. Perhaps something was lost in translation and they were just kidding around but they come across as a right pair of cunts.
