I tried becoming a vegetarian way back in my high school days (that was around about the time the wheel was invented) but I couldn't do it.
I do have a lot of respect for people who can do it and good on 'em!
I will eat meat as long it hasn't been a pet.....we have a farm you see!
Besides, how do we know that the vegetables don't hurt when we pluck, pick and cut them?? I have heard of a research study that was done where they showed that plants shied away from you when you went to pick them! So I guess that means we should all become oxygenatarians??
