    I've heard the arguements that it was moreso a SCAVENGER (like a vulture) instead of herbivore... (being a strict herbivore would be laughable in regards to it's teeth)... The arguements either way are not so persuasive... noone can adamantly prove either side as it is sheer speculation. Most of the "proof" is it's puny forelimbs, and shortened tibia.... The only way to prove either arguement would be to get ahold of Doc Brown and his Delorean and find out firsthand.

    Manipulating animals with exogenous hormones or myostatin blockers is fundamentally irresponsible.

    The male animals dont always produce more testosterone. They're only male because their the givers not the recievers. Just like an electric plug

    All this time I have had it in my head that you need nuts to have testosterone, I guess I was wrong.

    I don't see why they would not work but I have no idea how to go about the dosages.

    Well if a 180 pound male or 200 pound male consumes 20mg daily. Then a 100lb dog might be able to take in 10mg. Or you could split the capsules to 5mg. I'm not sure how their liver would process it though. The damage might be far worse because of their smaller frame.

  6. splitting the capsule would be hard considering that most of the stuff inside is just filler, you wouldnt know where the active ingredient would be. Yeah this type of thing would be a little irresponsible though.

    nd yeah i kinda thought that the t-rex thing was sketchy.......its boasted on alot of anti-meat websites when they talk about equality of proteins and stuff like that. I heard it first from a vegitarian, go figure. ( no i am not a veggicist so i have nothing against them)

    Hyenas are a great example.

    The alpha female hyena often has higher testosterone than most males! Now, the alpha male tends to have higher test than the alpha female, this is still in start contrast to humans.

    There is one other consideration, too. The affinity to test. On average females have slightly lower test than males but there is a theory (yet to be proven) that they have a higher affinity making them more stout.

    But, overall, high testosterone isn't a solely male trait.

    I'm not sure how you want me to interpret that...


  10. She was the alpha male...I was the *****. But she was so damned hot. It made me deal with a psycho a lot longer than I should had.

  12. That Belgian Blue aint no joke!!! Bovine bulls are massive animals compared to the females. I grew up on a farm, and even the friendly bulls were just so strong that you had to take great care when you were around them. Get caught by a kick or a casual swing of their head and you'd be in the hospital.

    Lol - making me reminise...we had this one mean ass bull that used to charge my Dad whenever he saw him. Saw my father as a competitive male I guess, because all the cows used to do what he said. (he did dish out the tasty grain, after all). So one day my Dad had enough, and after out running the bull ran to the tractor barn and came roaring out with the John Deere 4000 (big ass tractor) and charged the bull right back!

    Whenever the bull saw my Dad after that, he'd watch cautiously from a distance

    No need to be hostile towards a life-style you don't understand... Most vegans are not vegan for health reasons... Some are just REALLY sickened by the whole treatment of animals and do not wish to be the reason for one's death... People have different moral views...

    Now, yes -- being vegan can be dangerous, IF NOT DONE CORRECTLY.
    But, just like any diet, it can be just as healthy as the rest.

    I have been a vegan for over 4 years and vegetarian for longer. I am fit, healthy and know how to eat a proper, balanced diet, which IS attainable as a vegan.

    I am not a "dumb ass" because I choose to care about animals and have found a way around eating them OR their products.

    EVERYONE has the right to what they believe in, and if it is done right, there is no harm.
