Piet, A moment that explains why some folk become vegetarians. Yet some will eat fish. Don't know whether you ever read the comic strip, The Phantom. He lived in a skull cave in the jungle and had trained some big cats, don't remember which, to eat fish instead of other animals. Even as a kid, I always thought it was simple minded; the fish died. So, if the purpose was to avoid killing living things, stopping part way was a disappointment. And then I wondered what kind of a world this was that required us to kill to live. I still don't know.
