Hi James...

What are you suggesting? That all herbivores are, in fact, brain dead? That
anyone who didn't like fish as a kid is retarded? Hmmmm. Your tear shedding
elephants have pretty decent sized brains, not many fish in their diet. A lot
of my friends with PhD's are vegetarian, some life-long. Their brains seem to
work okay. Whether they're normal is, of course, open to interpretation. :-)

Scratch one. (IMHO)
