This is a picture of a debeaking machine. The newborn chicks (only female, the male ones are useless to the Egg-industry and are therefor ground up alive and fed to other chickens) are attached to the machine and a small laser makes an incision to disconnect blood and -nerves. The tip of the beak will fall off after a couple of days. The industry claims that this is completely painless, which of course isn’t true as the beak of birds are full with sensitive nerve endings. If you find this cruel and unethical, then please refrain from consuming eggs (or any other animal derived product).

Tumblr, please stop sending me emails telling me what’s happening right now on Tumblr.

I know what’s happening right now on Tumblr.

I never leave.

Accurate.

The Apple Watch I want. I just hope I can afford it when pricing is announced next year.
I also hope the modularity theory discussed on The Talk Show is the model Apple chooses to adopt for Apple Watch. If not for the Sport Edition, then at least for the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition.
I would love for Apple Watch to become a personal legacy device that we keep around because of sentiment, made possible by the option of internal upgrades year after year.
It could turn the idea of classist consumerism on its head. Already there’s a backlash against those who upgrade to a new smartphone every year, in spite of new features and functionality.
Depletion of rare resources required to make phones, environmental destruction caused by used batteries piling up in landfills, and questionable labor practices in developing nations are all reasons cited for consciously decreasing one’s demand for high tech products. 
But if you were to spend a large chunk of change up front for a device you know you’ll come to love and that will actually retain (and perhaps increase) value over the years…now that’s thinking differently.
AppleCare redefined.

RGB Vegan 014: Stop Vegan Blaming

In this episode: an exploration of vegan blaming and how it damages the animal liberation movement. Shownotes are available at http://rgbvegan.com/014.

Vegan blaming is one of the greatest challenges for animal activists to overcome. We need to focus on building coalitions, looking past differences in strategy, and get to work for the animals. Stop vegan blaming!

This is the end.

This is the end.
