    But it's something the feral child needs to be taught?

    I can't believe you are going to argue that feeling feelings when looking at faces is some kind of weird evidence of malformity. The opposite is true.
    Attaching human meaning to non-human animals is a human thing. No other hunter behaves that way. Even non-Westernized humans don't take it as far as we do.
    We're weak, overly emotional and detached from the natural order. Compare us to tribespeople. They don't get emotional about an animal that was for food. Sometimes they attach meaning to specific animals, like Westerners do to pets, but food animals are food.

    We had a TV programme in France called "the musketeers'cooking". The woman sometimes took whole animals (well, game or rabbits, not a cow !) and did all the preparation (evisceration...) on TV ! The thread reminded me of her, I can imagine her cooking a whole head on TV while saying "yummy !"

    Confession time: we had home-made pizza (using white flour in the base) last night. It was good. Possibly not primal.

    OTOH, my wife has the same problem looking at pigs head that you do UF. So when I roast/broil it, I have to carve it up into tiny chunks before serving it so she can stomach it on the table. The kids still delight in giving her the snout though
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.

    that is not historically accurate
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    what?! The cruelty of women's laughter is a genetic trigger

    Modern humans read facial expressions which our ancestors did not do. I wouldn't be able to cook the face or head of another animal either. I accidentally squished a lizard with a door once and spent the rest of the day in tears, and I'm a six foot 249 lb former infantryman. You're fine. If your life depended on it (which in our modern society it doesn't, thankfully) you wouldn't have any problems eating a hogs face.
