"It was so easy to imitate these people. I could already spit on the first day. Then we used to spit in each other’s faces. The only difference was that I licked my face clean afterwards. They did not. Soon I was smoking a pipe like an old man, and if I then also pressed my thumb down into the bowl of the pipe, the entire area between decks cheered. Still, for a long time I did not understand the difference between an empty and a full pipe."
From F. Kafka "A Report for an Academy"

It's funny how many people posted animal imagery in their profile pics. I've lost count as there are so many members but I noticed quite a few at the beginning.

Thanks for your comment. I couldn't agree more with you. Hope we can discuss some of the topics you mentioned. See you!

When it shakes down, the greatest class divisions are between humans and animals and adults and children, with men and women a close third. As a teacher of introductory social anthropology, I always kicked off tutorials with the topic of animals and it never failed. Vegetarians vs hunters, pets and zoos, sacrifice, calling humans you despise animals. Thanks for founding this group.
