The foam suffocates 15,000 chickens in 15 minutes. It’s an American invention by Kifco, a manufacturer of irrigation equipment in Illinois. Note the humans in white suits standing in the window like strange aliens in a sci-fi horror movie. This is a “free range” farm, because they are not in individual cages, so the FDA allows the packaging of their dead flesh to be sold as “free range.” happy chickens, humane farming - feel good about your purchase packaging for unconscious consumers of animals.
As we all know, suffocating is painful, but carbon dioxide in high concentrations is also aversive. It converts to carbonic acid, burning mucous membranes. Feeling as though their throats and nasal passages are on fire, birds killed by in-barn gassing gasp, shake their heads, stretch their necks in an attempt to breathe and convulse so violently that they fracture their wings and legs.

The Blood Moon is almost upon us. It is when there will be a total lunar eclipse, where the earths shadow will turn the Moon a blood red colour. The Blood Moon will be visible worldwide.One of the great things about lunar eclipses is that they are completely safe to view with the naked eye. No special filters are required to protect your eyes like those used for solar eclipses. You don’t even need a telescope to watch the eclipse, although a good pair of binoculars will help.In Paganism a Blood Moon opens a gateway into the heavens as the Earth, Sun and Moon align. For a brief moment in time we can commune with the spirit world and other realms. In many religions this is a great omen and many wars and natural disasters have happened around a Blood Moon. Many Christians believe it will be the return of their savior Jesus Christ, The King James Bible predicts: “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes,” [Joel 2:31] There are 4 Blood Moons called a Tetrad, each 6 months apart giving us the number 666 between each Blood Moon, so many Christians believe it will be a return of Christ and the start of the Rapture on the final Blood Moon. The 4 Blood Moons also happen on 4 Jewish holidays of Passover and Sukkot. The Tetrad started on April 14th 2014 the other Blood Moons are October 8th 2014, April 4th 2015, September 28th 2015. But don’t worry the world is definitely not going to end.

Unless it’s cloudy :-/

wow

soooooo is no one going to say ANYTHING about how this woman is full of shit?

like oh, you needed a fat suit to learn that fat people aren’t treated well? OR HOW ABOUT YOU JUST LISTEN TO THE ENDLESS STORIES FROM ACTUAL FAT WOMEN WHO COULD HAVE TOLD YOU THIS IN TWO SECONDS

you needed a fat suit to show that people don’t like when people use “fake” images …. I GET IT THAT IT’S SUPPOSEDLY STILL THE SAME PERSON but i mean, this is why i keep my pics up to date, because i don’t want to put myself through this

I’d be just as displeased if some guy showed up looking 40 when he said he was 25 (has happened), so I mean, what is this experiment proving other than “people on dating sites expect you to look like your photo, regardless of what you look like/weigh”

and you couldn’t find an actually fat woman for this entirely POINTLESS “experiment”

my body is not your fucking costume

the struggles and hardships i face from a fatphobic society don’t come off at the end of the day. I can’t unzip my oppression and slide it off

l FUCKING HATE PEOPLE WHO PUT ON FAT SUITS BECAUSE THE EXPERIMENTS THEY DO ARE ALL FALSE RESULTS

Like oh, you felt bad because some guys left you while in a fat suit? But you KNOW you get to take it off later. You KNOW this isn’t something you’ve dealt with for 20+ years, and likely won’t have to ever experience once the suit is gone. 

Wear that suit, EVERY DAY, even in the shower, for 20+ years, FROM CHILDHOOD, THEN fucking tell me what you’ve learned. Until then, get the fuck out of my face with this social experiment bullshit

What. Fucking. Bullshit.

This “experiment” is completely fucked up in every way it could be. Aside from the OBVIOUS offensiveness of treating fat bodies as costumes to take on and off, what they are doing is actually reenacting a FAT SHAMING fantasy. Fat bigots created the fantasy of the deceitful fatty posting brazenly dishonest photos of themselves on dating sites to lure men in. But that’s a myth fat haters created to vindicate their disgust of fat people.

It. Doesn’t. Happen.

(And fuck any “Well Actually” bullshit. I don’t care if you can find an isolated instance of it happening. All Catfish does is troll the internet trying desperately to find those isolated instances. They are so rare that in the real world, the instances still round down to NONE.)

By being credulous of this lie, the experiment is useless. They craft a scenario where the “fat woman” really is lying to these men so it becomes impossible to detach their reactions from disgust with her body and disgust with being lied to.

People are allowed to be attracted to thin bodies. What they aren’t allowed to do is to translate a lack of attraction to a moral failing. What they aren’t allowed to do is be disgusted with bodies that don’t happen to turn them on. What they aren’t allowed to do is shielded from any critical examination of how attraction to thin bodies is socially conditioned and privileged. But at the end of the day, no one thinks anyone is obligated to fuck anyone they don’t want to. Experiments like this ignore meaningful questions about how fat women are treated in favor of scolding men for being taken aback when their date turns out to be a thin woman in a fucking obvious fat suit.

What they COULD have done but didn’t because this would have involved empowering ACTUAL fat women to tell their ACTUAL story is had an actual fat woman go on Tinder with photos that are completely accurate but also posed in a manner that might be regarded as “conventionally” flattering. Because that’s what is really behind the fever dream they re-enacted instead. The guys flipping out over being lied to are firstly never attractive themselves and “being lied to” is always them hoping a woman is thinner than she looks and being resentful that their fat shaming gamble didn’t pay out.

OR you could drop the bullshit notion of needing to conduct an experiment all together and just interview fat women about their experiences on dating sites. EVERY fat woman I know has stories of guys seeking them out to abuse them. EVERY fat woman has stories about guys responding to a polite but firm rejection with abuse. EVERY fat woman has stories of guys who ARE are attracted to fat women but act entitled to their attention and affection. Tell THOSE stories. Not some fantasy that is more at place on some fat trolling sub-Reddit.
