Feedback to podcast 67 from Fab from Linux Outlaws: “What? You criticise my eating habits and don’t even give me a chance to reply? What the heck is wrong with eating horses? I’ve eaten horses, cows, ducks, pigs, chickens, snakes, iguanas, kangaroos, frogs, oysters, fish, fowls, mussels…..

If you find any of that appalling, it’s only in your head. Your body doesn’t give a damn.“
