We are being too serious now but genetically the egg is a chicken. The grass is not genetically a cow.
Now that we are in the serious corner: Mushrooms are neither animals nor plants, they are from a different kingdom. They share some genetic traits with life in the animal and plant kingdoms - but more wiht animals than with plants (if what I have been told is correct).
So, do vegetarians, vegans or whatever they call themselves shy away from mushroom because they are genetically closer to animals? Or do they ignore the genetics, saying that "Anything that isn't walking or swimming or flying is OK as food"? How do they then relate to jellyfish, spending part of their life swimming about, and part of their life affixed to the bottom of the sea, growing like a plant? (Consider it a question of principle - I don't think jellyfish are suitable for eating!)
Are you suggesting that vegans are the only ones not eating meat products?
No, but they're the largest segment of the market. Especially the fake meat sort; we carnivores have no need for sad imitations. If I want something that tastes like meat I'll eat the real thing; if I want a vegetable meal I'll go for something that highlights the best a veggies can be (which is not fake meat).
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

Me and my colleagues at work have totally had it with SignalR and it's erratic behaviour, everything seems to work fine locally, but as soon as it's tested in a production environment unexplainable problems occur. Also there does not seem to be anything to find about these problems on the internet, like long delays on message delivery
Are we the only ones having these problems ?
We are thinking about switching to ZeroMQ, see: message-queue-servers[^]
