Maybe I just had bad timing, but when I went to Macau I spent more time waiting on line at customs to enter than the ferry itself took. Not worth it.

Quote: Originally Posted by Dragon I think the problems are equal (meat & veggie agriculture). When you need to mass produce cheap beef, or veggies, the environment is going to suffer.

But what is so bad about trying to achieve an ethical vision? Many of us who eat meat also have some standards about humane treatment of...
