    ...you get SARS!!! x_hehe



    WHO Traces SARS Virus to Civet Cat

    (AP) - The World Health Organization has traced the SARS virus to the civet cat and two other small mammals in China, and researchers are investigating a possible link to the outbreak of the virus in humans, an official said Friday. Researchers from the University of Hong Kong examined 25 animals representing eight species in a live animal market in southern China and found the SARS virus in all six masked palm civets they sampled, as well as in a badger and a raccoon dog.

    Sure, we eat cats. At least we don't chop people up in the name Quetzalcoatl and cannibalize them. Is Jose so tired, man? Cross the border?

    Please don't chase me down with your macahuitl, Aztec savage. :axe

    It's usually people with small, tiny minds who tend to confuse Aztecs with Spaniards. eyes:

    You are from Mexico though. Or were you a pure Spaniard in the upper class there? If you are a pure Spaniard, then the Aztec comment was uncalled for, however the SARS joke is not only pointless, but insensitive.

    My father's side was from Mexico, but they were untainted by Aztec blood.

    As for the SARS joke, I was only poking fun. If I had offended you, then I am sorry. However in my opinion, eating cats is really unhealthy and not to mention disturbing. I guess the Hindus feel the same way about Americans consuming cattle. :axe

    Your apology is accepted, I shouldn't have been so quick to criticize you back. I don't like eating cats either, I think it is mostly a habit of the Cantonese, who are considered weird in terms of diet even by other Chinese. I just don't understand why Westerners make a big deal out of different diet and customs.

    The profound ignorance of the West is to blame.

    It's because the cows are being fed cow meat mixed in with grains and other unknown stuff the cattle companies don't want to tell the American public about. :dot
