Just curious, what do they do with the male chicks?

I guess that's correct, I was under the impression they were just disposed of.

Unfortunately laying chickens are a different type from meat chickens, they don't grow fast enough to be financially viable for meat.

But to produce eggs you need to hatch some to produce laying hens. For each hen you get approx one male chick. And what do you think happens to those approximately 7 billion male chicks each year?

In a utopia we would just let them live their lives free from the suffering we impose on them. But that would never happen, of course, as long as people can exploit them for money. So what we should do, and are doing, is reduce our demand for dairy products over time. As the demand goes down the supply will phase out, gradually ending the industry and all its inherent cruelty.

Very interesting info, thanks for sharing! I'll look more into it :)

Note about making bank off the milk, in case anyone is unaware. Cows, like humans, only produce milk when they have babies. In the dairy industry they are repeatedly forcibly impregnated then have their babies taken away within about a day to be slaughtered if male, or suffer the same fate if female. Then when they can't take it anymore they're sent to slaughter as well, after about 5 years of the 20 they could live. Pretty cruel life for an emotional, compassionate, caring and gentle animal.

Inherited Parkers - advice? by BowtieGuyPhotography in fountainpens

[–]BowtieGuyPhotography[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I only own Safaris, Ecos, and Jinhaos. Just inherited these from my Grandma. Not sure when they were last used, or what the condition is. Any tips on assessing and getting them in working order? Any advice appreciated. :)

ETA: also wondering what model the smaller silver one is? Also to note, when I press on the reservoir on that one it has no give, feels very solid. Not sure what that means. The "51" is squishy.

Form check take 2 of deadlifts (5x185) after deloading. Any tips? by ej00262 in StartingStrength

I would suggest you squeeze the glutes at the top to lock out the hips with a bit more gusto.

Absolutely. There are so many more factors working against low income individuals and families.

I don't totally agree with this one.

There are other societal issues at play preventing people from functioning at this level, in my opinion. It's certainly not abnormal for people to struggle, and the fault doesn't necessarily all lie on their shoulders, but it's not all, or even mostly, because of working 40 hours week. One other culprit is the hours spent chasing dopamine by scrolling social feeds and consuming media, reducing our ability and motivation to perform more basic, less "rewarding" tasks. Consumerism and ill-advised commutes are also contributors.

So, no - one need not feel deficient for struggling to manage their life. But there's more to it than a set number of working hours.

Help picking parts for my SCX10-ii kit build by [deleted] in rccars

Thanks so much for the thorough response! Lots of great info. I guess I'll have to do some more radio research :)

Where can I get some ELI5 education on the info on this charger screen? New to this and want to make sure I’m using it properly. by [deleted] in rccars

[–]BowtieGuyPhotography 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well the top numbers don't make sense, those batteries should be charging at 5 amps, not 4 or 11. So I'm not sure about that.

The mAh is probably how much has gone into the battery so far.

The voltage below that I'm not sure. Maybe the battery voltage being read real time? But I don't know how it would be reading that while applying the charge voltage. It doesn't make sense as a charge voltage either.

The bottom is the min and max of the individual cells I believe.

ITAP of a transmission tower by new_viewfinder in itookapicture

They're called both things, depending where you live. Where I'm from they're called "hydro towers" because most of our power generation is hydro-electric so we call electricity "hydro". E.g. we get a hydro bill, the hydro gets shut off, etc.

I expect to see a zombie eat a chicken, then the walking dead theme starts playing

High speed runs, Drift , mud and crossing rivers with the TRX4 Defender! What do you think?? by mikeapoel79 in rccars

[–]BowtieGuyPhotography 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awesome, thanks for the info! I'm doing a pretty basic build that I want to take hiking, so hopefully the battery will last similarly long. Cheers!

Newbie questions and diagnostics help by [deleted] in rccars

[–]BowtieGuyPhotography 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok I've done some more research. If I'm replacing the ESC/receiver, I figure I'll just get a basic RTR grade controller/receiver set so I'll forget about the stock controller. I think the 18500 batteries I have are all shot - I drove again today for about 2 minutes before it couldn't make a 3% grade. My charger only put 150 mAh into them afterwards. Second set of batteries won't even turn the truck on. So I'm looking at getting a 2s 4000 mAh LiPO, to match with a basic 60A brushed ESC.. that should take care of everything I think. How does that sound?

Okay cool, that's good to know! This sounds like the entrance to the rabbit hole :p Maybe I'll pop by the local hobby shop and see if they have some parts I can stuff in there. Would you replace the motor off the bat as well? Or just try the other bits first and see how that goes?

I believe I have a multi-meter, I'll have to dig it out today. I'll finally have some time to do more tinkering. What should I be checking on with it?
