It looks as if I am just repeating my atlanta pride when i subject this meme. however, i refer to a little known, or perhaps very well known now, American Indian weapon that's pretty cool. The Atlatl (or Atl-Atl, pronounced kindof like At-Lah-Tle) has been causing some controversy for the past couple months i suppose in Pennsylvania. I hope no one has posted about this since it is my first post on memestreams, and i'm not exactly sure how it works, but apparently it's wicked cool. Anyway
This is the story that i'm linking..
I'm vegan. And not for the health benefits. I'm a pretty radical animal rights defender. But, I disagree again with most animal rights defenders when it comes to the ATLATL. Let it GO! Basically, this is an ages old hunting tool that takes great skill to throw. While I would never hunt, and think hunting is a little stupid and a lot cruel/dangerous (*begin shameless plug* just ask Harry Whittington */end shameless plug*) I think it's absurd to attack this one and insignificant facet of animal rights. The problem is NOT local hunting, but the Slaughtering-Industrial Complex that has become the family farm. Apparently, Animal rights groups are focusing on the legality of a million-year-old hunting tool because it "kills animals inhumanely." Let me repeat that, KILLS them INHUMANELY. Let's be honest, who can think of a HUMANE way to KILL someone?! I can't. Let the 10 atlatl hunters in the world throw their javalins and instead focus on the atrocities that are factory farming. Ugh! That and Atlatl is really REALLY fun to say. just try it. atlatl.... atlatl...
