Battery Farming


How sad is this there are about 4 hens stuffed into 1 cage about the size of an A4 piece of paper! All so we can have eggs.
How would you feel if you were put in that position pecking other hens and being pecked by other chickens,standing on uncomfortable wire 24/7 and never even making contacts with your eggs. Its animal cruelty and it is not cool!!! So maybe we should start thinking about buying free-range eggs sometimes they may be a few cents more but think about this situation!!!! Its animal cruelty up against a few cents out of your normal budget every so often, I hope you can find the kindness in your heart to save the poor hens and change your eggs at least just once!!!

I looked on the news and saw this and i thought it was something to think about:

Man falls on face after first sky dive>

A swedish tourist landed and fell on his face after his first sky dive. It was his first solo sky dive and ended very badly. Officials say his chute opened but from there it was an uncotrolled fall. St. John's ambulance head said the 26 year old Swedish man was lucky to be alive.

I thought that was quite interesting.

So if you were that man think about it would you sky dive again?
