I can see it now... new mothers lining up to be hooked up to a milking machine twice a day! Who is going to control their diet so they can produce maximum volume daily? What substitute will be fed to their babies since the milk will be needed for production purposes? How many hman mothers will be needed to replace the millions of gallons of cow milk produce everyday across the U.S. Do you realize that the average Holstein milk cow can produce 13,000 lbs of milk a year! :shock:

My family has been in the dairy business for 60 years and I find this notion absolutely laughable. What happens to milk cows that no longer give milk? Can you say McDonalds Big Mac? At least the cow stays alive if it is giving milk. But if they don't want cow milk or beef from cows then the cows would never be bred and therefore never be born. So the side effect of PETA's project would be to make milk cows extinct! So then they would be declared a "protected" species, what do you do with them then? Make them pets? I guess you could use them as organic lawn mowers. :lol:

If there were no milk from cows the follows food items would no longer be available:
milk to drink
powered milk
butter
buttermilk
cottage cheese
yogurt
cream
ice cream
sour cream
cheese (so no more pizzas, cheeseburgers, nachos, etc)
lots of tasty desserts
and there are countless other food products that use milk or one of its by-products in its manufacture.

Not that I'm supporting PETA here, but a lot of what's on Bandmaster's list is replacable...

powered milk same as above, but powdered
butter margarine
buttermilk gross... :vomit:
cottage cheese
yogurt
cream not "creaminess" though. that can be made through various combination of non-dairy
ice cream soy ice cream (surprisingly delicious)
sour cream
cheese (so no more pizzas, cheeseburgers, nachos, etc)
lots of tasty desserts about 90% (i'm estimating) of these tasty deserts can be duplicated using non-dairy alternatives
and there are countless other food products that use milk or one of its by-products in its manufacture. only because it's cheap. most of the products could be manufactured without the dairy, just not as cheaply.

Buttermilk is wonderful. It's impossible to get in Southeast Asia.

?? "m" was just a random variable they chose. Can't use "x" or "y" since your calculations involve points on the axis.

Mausoleum is named for Mausolus...

Roman art was unoriginal (either Greek or Etruscan)

The Archaic Period is creepy (especially with that "smile")
