No, but would like to try
No, totally against it
Poor sharks .... *3days later* *play Farcry3* KILL ALL THE SHARKS!
Now... really OT, is really cruel what they do to the animals
Is it really worth killing an endangered species for a 5 minute meal? No. Should we make exceptions because it's their "culture"? Fuck no. That's like saying we should continue to let middle-eastern men rape their women "because it's their culture".
This isn't 6000BC. We don't need to be the hunter gatherer anymore. Animals can be farmed and killed humanely, even fish. If people want shark fun soup go ahead, make a farm and do it humanely, leave the wild the fuck alone.
It's coming in 1.2!!!
It is not right to attack someone based on their race or sexuality as that is who they are.
There is a difference. I doubt you can see that though as judging by the last part of what you said you prefer to stay ignorant.
I don't care if people eat shark fin soup, as long as the sharks they're hunting aren't endangered. Wouldn't touch it myself though.
China should of grown up a long time ago, considering how advanced they are with technology it's a shame stuff like this lets them down.
It just doesn't sit well with me. I'd be more inclined to listen to a group of people in China or Hong Kong or Taiwan or whatever who are against it. I'd take them more seriously than a group of self-appointed cultural crusaders from 'Murica or Europe.
Tasted, was good. This video where Ramsey tastes it seems very biased, of course he can only tell this isn't good, he's the good guy, saying anything good about this would make his popularity drop a huge time (maybe even end his "public" career)
But yeah, terrible fishing / hunting practices there, even for something good this should be changed, at least use the whole fish.
They have whole programs dedicated to sports fishing, which isn't really anything more than meaningless fish torture for fun. Can't see why mistreating a fish before you cook it is bad.

Such a giant waste, especially when famine is a problem in some countries. Also, if eating the shark is about prestige, why not eat the whole thing? What makes jellied fins so special?
On topic; Old news are old, saw this quit a long time ago. Its not so much about taste, its a delicasy. Makes no sence if you ask me, but one can't understand the world always. I surely hope that the local police enforces rules about fishermens, that are known to hunt sharks just for some stupid flappy fin.
Edit: PS best soup Goullash ftw! Now thats a delicasy
One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
Waste? Plenty of wasteful practices in the world, including my country.
Cruel? You do realize that we cook shell fish while they are alive???
