I sent then a file of an old map of the British Empire, and they made me a nice silk pocket square, which I wore today.


And now this is for sale for everyone. Might have to kop.

Any ethical hunter, that is the vast majority, will only kill an animal in certain vital spots that ensure a quick death, hopefully.

Well i don't like hunting that much, may be because of that i don't understand it. I occasionally go to forests, may be even stay there overnight, i enjoy outdoors and enjoy nature, but I bring my food with me. The point of hunting in short is to kill an animal, and people are making a sport out of it (the trophies as you've told). Don't get me wrong, I was almost 8 years in Martial Arts, I was quite cruel when fighting and i quite enjoyed it, my teammates were even calling me Berserk for that, but the difference is my opponents were fighting me willingly and i didn't have a big advantage (gun) against them.

Egypt was never formally a colony. After the building of the Suez they were heavily indebted to European banks (especially British and French) and ownership of shares was sold on to our governments, leading to British and French controllers sitting in the Egyptian Cabinet effectively dictating from behind the scenes by financial means. After Nationalist uprisings in the early 1880s the British army intervened, defeated the nationalist forces in '82 (also bombing cities) and installed Tewfik as a puppet ruler - a figurehead for British rule.

 

 

At the break of the first world war Egypt became an official protectorate to solidify our position against the Central Powers aligned Ottoman Empire.

 

The map in the pocket square is from 1886 and the Scramble for Africa was only just beginning - it started in 1881 and lasted until the onset of WWI. Cape Colony had already been colonised by the Dutch and formally ceded to the British Empire in 1814 but inner-Africa was uncolonisable until advances in exploration and medical technology later on.

 

Sudan, Kenya, Uganda, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Swaziland, and Zambia were all colonised or conquered during the period between 1890 and early 20th century in a determined attempt to link the holdings in the north (Egypt and the Suez with the south (Cape Colony) by rail and telegraph to facilitate military movement, communication (and therefore effective governance), easy trade and movement of resources and so-forth. The British were more successful at this than the French attempt to build a West to East connection and the Portuguese aim at an East to West link. Imperial Germany's acquisition of German East Africa prevented the link from being complete until the defeat of the Kaiser and fall of the German colonies in 1918. By then, however, the British empire was out of money and was unable to focus on colonial expansion - instead being preoccupied with both domestic issues and problems with its existing colonies: the Anglo-Irish war (1919-1921/22), nationalist tensions in India (including the Amritsar massacre), the formal indepdenance of Egypt and the Balfour Declaration granting commonwealth status to the Dominions of the empire (Canada, Newfoundland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the Irish Free State) to offload the cost of administration.

To each their own, and you definitely have a right not to enjoy hunting, or even to disapprove of it. However I think ethical hunting involves as little cruelty as possible. Also, consider this, unless you are a vegetarian your meat possibly comes from cramped slaughter houses, unethical breeding grounds and farms, etc. I'd rather eat meat from animals who get to live natural lives in the wild. Isn't always possible of course, but it's preferable to me.

See the Japanese shoes thread for a similar debate about seals/exotics.

I don't disapprove of hunting, as you've told to each his own. I just don't like doing that myself, cruel or not killing is killing and I've already told my point of view on killing, regardless human or animal. Well yes, the idea of slaughterhouses and animal abuse is torturing me, but i don't see any solution, if they were killed, not buying that meat will not stop it.

Great looking shirt. That's the one downside of being younger, it's impossible to appropriately wear a contrast collar shirt.
