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.
Frank Ocean had a little announcement to make today, and he took it to his Tumblr to announce that he is skipping Coachella to ‘stay in the groove & finish this bitch.” That really can only mean one thing: his sophomore album. He also announced he will be opening for OutKast at the Pemberton Music Festival this summer, so you’ll get to see him with OutKast this summer still.
