          I eat meat (fish, birds, reptiles) but do not eat mammals (cows, dolphins, people etc). Not for ethical reasons though. When I eat mammals I just feel sluggish and don't run as well so I stopped.

              Snakes, alligator and so forth; I have to travel to Asia somewhat regularly for work so these thing pop up on the menu more than you might expect.

                  I think he was being sarcastic.  Or I need to get my sarcasm detector calibrated.

                  There was a point in my life when I ran. Now, I just run.

                    Yes. Usually I prefer the meat to live wild before it's on my plate. That's not always possible.

                      I am transitioning to be a pescatarian. The following information has influenced me the most to the transition.

                      I have joined local transition network (http://www.transitionnetwork.org) community. Last weekend I visited a member's garden. The family have a small garden but grow 75% food by themselves.

                       

                      A couple weeks ago I bought some red wiggler worms and started kitchen vermicomposting to recycle kitchen waste, paper and cardboard.

                        Relief.  When I had read to this point in the sentence, my mind was thinking, yes, they are cold blooded, but do they qualify as part of a pescatarian diet?

                        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                          Relief.  When I had read to this point in the sentence, my mind was thinking, yes, they are cold blooded, but do they qualify as part of a pescatarian diet?

                           

                          Which brings to mind a very unusual event that happened many years ago up at Caples Lake near Carson Pass. It was late February and I set out to do some ice fishing on the lake, right? I set up near this elderly gentleman and after 10 minutes he catches a nice trout. As for me...not a bite. Another hour goes by and he's still catching them. As for me...zilch.

                           

                          So I approach him to ask his trick. He doesn't even look my way and just mumbles. OK...not the friendly type, so I go back to my fishing. With still no luck and this guy pulling fish out like there's no tomorrow, I approach him once again and say...

                           

                          "Cmon buddy! I've been here for awhile now with no luck and you've apparently got some secret! Let me in on it, won't you?"

                           

                          He looks at me (finally)...mumbles...Then raises his hand to his mouth and spits out a wad of warm, wiggley worms and sez...

                          "It's the worms...Ya gotta keep'em warm."

                            they are cold blooded, but do they qualify as part of a pescatarian diet?

                             

                            I am not sure what you mean.

                             

                            I don't object meats as long as they are humanely raised and produced, not industrial brutally produced. As Mark Bittman mentioned in his talk, there is no way that all farmers could humanely raise the animals for the massive demands. I just choose not to contribute to the demand force.

                             

                            What I try to do is to reduce my own carbon footprint and energy consumption. Since I found out that the worms can efficiently do the job (the worm eats half of its body weight daily and the population double every 3 month), I could reduce using a recycle truck to transport my waste to the recycle center and use energy to recycle it.

                              We were talking about food, including reptiles and fish, and you said you bought worms.  I was still thinking in terms of eating the critters.
