:( Well, let's not go getting mad at someone's culture. Even if it's outrageous and inhumane.

She said it wasn't religious.

Chicks, bunnies and black cats are living creatures also,
but every year thousands suffer for the holidays.
Not much different IMO.

why would obtaining goldfish be part of a holiday? I mean, why goldfish? Not trying to be culturally ignorant, but I dont think goldfish are part of Persian ancient history...

So true. I used to volunteer at a shelter, we had so many black cats due to the superstition. Seriously. They don't want a black cat because of that.

Personally I love my black cat. Sad to think of the things others might do to him.

I *personally* think rabbits/black cats is a *bit* different, well in this situation. I mean no one SAYS you MUST go out and by a rabbit because it's easter, that's just something a parent does for children as an easter gift, in this case, the novelty wears off and the rabbit is neglected, usually a short period of time, until the parents take it to the shelter, etc. YES I know I sound cruel but what I'm saying is these animals actually get a second chance... I'm not too sure the goldfish are getting a second chance. With the goldfish... Is it something that the WHOLE country does ANNUALLY?

second chance? I think not, not most of them,

I was the first one to say LL was a troll, and everyone jumped on my back and said I was mean. Have we ever really...seen King Dedede? Or Equinox? I mean, we see the little picture of KD but you could get a picture like that off the internet somewhere.

The point is, clearly LL doesn't care. She never has, and probably never will. If she did, she'd do something proactive instead of sitting on her rear spamming a betta fish forum (not talking bad about the forum, I'm just saying). I say we just wait and not respond until she does. Let her show us that she's for real. Let her show us why she can't do water changes on her own, why she is incapable of doing things on her own, what kind of conditions KD and Equinox are living in. For all we know she could have no fish at all.

Something smells fishy here, and it isn't my fish tanks.
