Allah’s hellige krigere og kulturberigere tvunget til at smide Kalashnikov’erne og gå over til bue og pil.
Eller, hvis det er for kompliceret for dem, nøjes med knivene – det har de da kunnet lære. Det viser sig nemlig, at i fremstillingen af ammunition anvendes dele fra – gisp, hvor forfærdeligt – grise! :
When Christien Meindertsma spent three years researching all the products made from a single pig from a farm in the Netherlands, this Rotterdam designer found 185 products contributed to by the animal. She has published her findings in a book titled Pig 05049.
“This was a pig, a meat pig, lived on a farm here.” Christien Meindertsma sounds almost affectionate about “her” pig, now immortalized as “Pig 05049.”
“I wasn’t allowed to see this pig because at the time there was some disease issue. But I was sent a picture of the pig. And an ear tag, and all. So I would know this was a real pig.”
That “real pig” went a long way when Meindertsma traced its commercial uses to products including ammunition, medicine, photo paper, heart valves, brakes, chewing gum, porcelain, cosmetics, cigarettes, conditioner and biodiesel.
Collagen, derived from the pig’s skin, is used for beer and aspirin. The designer points out that the same pig who gives you a headache after drinking that beer, delivers those aspirin to you the next day. “Even though the combination of bullets and beauty injections is food for thought, collagen is processed in the manufacture of both.”
