I thought Vegans were people from Las Vegas.

There’s a scene in The Challenge, with Scott Glenn and Toshiro Mifune, in which Glenn’s character is having dinner with Japanese who are eating live worms. They goad him into trying it, and after swallowing it he said, “I can feel it moving around!” obviously very disturbed, and he grabbed a vessel of sake and started guzzling. The Japanese all laughed at him.

Anybody know anything about live worms in Japanese cuisine?

(Actually, I’m not sure it was worms. It might have been eels or snakes or something. Definitely something long and wiggly.)
They were Sake worms. They drown them in the rice wine. They're kind of like Tequila worms. Basically, if you get the worm you have to drink it, that's the rules. The Sake worms take a while to drown in the alcohol, and that's why they were still moving.

My assumption is that Klingons are carnivores like cats are: meat is necessary to their survival. Possibly, live meat is necessary to their survival. Dead flesh may lose some kind of vital nutrient. And of course, copious amounts of bloodwine is an absolute must!

Meat, perhaps, but not live meat. How much live meat do you think Worf would've eaten growing up on Earth?

Also, I do not think Michael Dorn looks unhealthy.

I treat myself to steak tartar and kibbeh often enough. If it's that easy for me to get raw meat, then I'm sure getting it even fresher wouldn't be THAT problematic for a Klingon on earth.

Big difference between raw (that's most everything in the meat department) and live.

A question I hadn't thought about before: Isn't it just gagh that Klingons eat live? Or also other foods?

Also, I don't remember... Did Worf's family know that much about Klingon culture?

From the picture, Dorn looks like he's going through chemo-therapy and radiation, he appeared better when he was consuming the flesh of the beast.


Agreed...he looks like something a Klingon has already chewed on....
He looked GREAT up on stage at the Vegas Con! Even talked about his 6 pack, but refused to give us lady fans a peek....

Sure that was Vegas Con and not Vegan Con?

I'm jealous. I'd love to see Michael Dorn. Better yet, I'd like to meet him.

Re: Worf is VEGAN!

I ate two big plates full of lettuce-y salad earlier in the week, and then I vomited. I didn't like that experience, and it will be a while before I eat large helpings of salad again. I think greens are good for people, but I also learned from that that it may be possible to eat them in excess.

I went through a phase, actually, when I tried to be vegan some time ago, and it didn't really work out. Even if I pulled it off personally, there's no way I would limit where I could dine out or impose the limitations on guests or company. I am of the opinion that it makes sense to eat animal products conservatively though; so instead of having Steak and potatoes and some vegetables as a side, I'd personally make it Spaghetti and potatoes or something like that with a side of something with meat.

Well anyway, good luck to Warf/Dorn. I'm sure the character of Mr. Warf would be a little bit grumbly at the prospect of veganism though.

It almost sounds like the shortest lived protest group of Klingons ever. Vegan Klingons. Alas they were extincted by their fellow Klingons who were offended at the very idea!

Klingons probably cannot eat a vegan diet anyway.

Re: Worf is VEGAN!

I can't see why Klingons can't be vegans. With protein resequencers in the Trek universe, supplements, and so on nutrition wouldn't ever be an issue. I also imagine that the vast majority of those in the Federation would be vegans, enslaving a species because it tastes nice? Just on a side note... Being a healthy vegan is easy and you no longer have blood on your hands its all good

Re: Worf is VEGAN!

I hate PETA. While I agree in principle with alot of their stances, they go about their business like a bunch of jackasses. They are almost as bad as the Tea Baggers. Actually, nothing is as bad as the Tea Baggers.

P.S. I do like the naked chick campaigns, though!
