    every year at this time the masses give up "meat" for lent....

    of course, all the restaurants over-advertise their fish selections b/c they want all to know it is available....

    so.....why is fish not considered "meat" ?.....

    i have always been perplexed by this and would enjoy input....

    whats the difference between a flank of chicken or a flank of cod???

    Not to mention that w/o some sort of beer batter on it fish is nasty. Steak can stand alone.

    The rumors on the Catholic school playgrounds was because the Italians controlled the fish markets, most Italians are Catholic, so it was a way to spur the fish market.

    What 21 referenced is what I was taught. Meat was a luxury item, but not only did Catholics eat meat because it was more affordable but also as a sign of sacrificing something luxurious, assuming you could afford meat.

    I don't know why they do what they do, but I do know that I had three Catholic roommates my freshman year, and they all thought I was a dickhead for for getting a Classic Double from Wendy's and eating it in front of them on Lenten Fridays.:biggrin:

    Now what if the cow was evil, like if it had made a deal with Satan. Could you eat a steak from THAT particular cow, and not go to hell? Cause that way you will have destroyed something evil.

    This is like a bad weed conversation....

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    No. You can destroy the cow, but eating it would mean putting something unclean in your body.

    I really thought this thread was going to be about doing laundry, and Alan just didn't know how to spell lint. BTW I just bought some new towels, and those fuckers'll fill up a lint trap in a heartbeat.
