I'm not giving up poultry, but I think I just permanently, rather than "when I can," changed what poultry I eat.
...this is relatively minor example of how consumable animals are treated on high-volume farms.
There are, of course "kinder" animal product alternatives to be found at places such as Rainbow Grocery; but in the end, they all get their heads chopped off before you eat 'em.
eh, so do plenty of veggies. but they don't make any delightful and sympathy-inspiring noises, so that makes it ok, or something.

Which is precisely why I'm a Breatharian. Poor, poor, little broccolis. They never even had a chance...
you talk good for a dead person.
You've gotta tell them!...Soylent Green is Chicken!
That's just a scale-model prototype for what they'll use on US!
i was just thinking of how this would be pretty effective for riot control.
How did this escape the "grim meathook future" tag?
Maybe it makes me a horrible person, but I found it richly amusing when the thing shot the bewildered chickens into the big rack box thing.
All chickens are bewildered.
That hurt my brain.
You must have a team working for you to find this weird shit, don't you? No one man can find all of this.
maybe it's called boingboing.net....
What efficiency! As an engineer, I'm impressed.
History repeating. This was in one of your comments eighteen months ago.
While that robot sucks chickens out of the barn, This robot starts them out, launching chicks into the barn where they may grow up big and strong (in 8 months).
Also, can we get a bigger one of these for closing time?
Also, also, someone out there in lazywebland needs to write a screensaver incorporating both of these machines, plus the growth and maturation of the launched chickes into harvest worthy chickens.
Am I a bad person for repeatedly laughing out loud while watching this?
it won't be so funny when you're reincarnated as a tortured farm animal will it now.
Just as well, then, that reincarnation isn't one of the doctrines of my religion. Plus I'm unsure how well developed a chicken's sense of humor is nor, as I understand it, would I remember laughing at such a situation when I was in a human incarnation, so the irony would be lost on my chicken-self. And, again, I'm not sure chickens are big on irony. I'll give you that "it won't be so funny when you're reincarnated as 'X'" is a nice all-purpose line that can be used for pretty much any situation that you disapprove of.
don't condescend please. it's an unattractive quality.
Claiming that, according to your particular religious beliefs, I'm going to be punished in a later life for laughing at this is somehow attractive?
you're missing my point. the point is not about religious dogma. the point is if you were empathetic to other living creatures, it would cease to be funny.
All humor is derived from the suffering of others. And you're a weenie.
Oh. My. God.
This makes me so deleriously happy.
most of your links are awesome. this is sick and everything thats wrong with our culture.
I think cessibaby is saying that vacuuous pop singers (and their video producers) are that way because they eat industrial chicken. I think JWZ is saying that sick and culture-warping items make awesome links.
BTW, after JWZ previous links to sadistic content, I admit I winced when clicking on those links, but I ... just ... couldn't ... resist.
