Ha! +Craige Mac a' Chruiteir beat me to sharing this on G+
Perhaps you are considering a pet pig, or maybe you want some pigs for meat or for farm jobs like ploughing. There are some important questions you need to consider; Will a pig suit your environment? Is there enough space for a pig? How much sheer destructive power will be unleashed if a pig ...

Seeing as how I work from home, I suppose this counts as my morning commute for the past couple of months.
There's a spring-fed dam down the bottom of one of our paddocks which used to have plenty of water, and a few bulrushes. After what I've dubbed the “eight month summer” from October 2012 to May 2013 (i.e. eight months of below average rainfall), most of the water in the dam was gone, ...

Not quite a rant (possibly a "rantlet") on privacy.
When I was about the right age to first think that taking compromising photos of myself might be good for a lark, technology was a little different. Mobile phones that weren't actually bricks anymore could show maybe two lines of pixelated text on an unpleasantly glowing background, ...

I'm sick of this shit in the tech industry.
I'm going to leave aside the possibility that this is a plot by someone else to ruin Justin D'Agostino's life by forging an email to Kelly Ellis, as I've seen similar sentiments posted too many times (i.e. more than never), and I'm fucking sick of it. Assuming for a moment that the egg-donor ...

An interesting watch if you find yourself with ~20 minutes free.

TL;DR: There were lots of different paleo diets, and we can't do any of them.

+Tim Serong "  Within that system, there is life, and life is amazing. It lives, it dies, it begets more life. In order to do this, lifeforms consume other lifeforms (either while they are alive, or after they are dead). Life and death are two sides of the same coin, and suffering is sadly a necessary part of life; we cannot eliminate it, only try to limit it.  "

I truly think from what you've said, that you may have been misled by someone, either family or outside influences.

You said 'suffering is sadly a necessary part of life, we can't eliminate it, only try to " limit it" , and you are right, but by your own admission, you want to 'limit suffering'.

So in this non hostile debate we are having, I say, you haven't fully considered the 'limit suffering' argument you are making here.

Animals suffer a lot more, than plants, plants have no nervous system, or brain to sense any pain networks, so there is no suffering with plants. Yes, thee is 'some' degree of suffering, but its extremely limited compared to the meat and dairy industry, and that is the lie they tell people to convince them to keep eating their products.

I've done my research, that is how I know these things, and I do this research to be objective and to verify I"m not giving inaccurate information when I ask people to consider being a veg/vegan, this way I know I'm putting the best face to the debate .

So, again if you truly want to limit suffering, plants is the only thing you should be eating.

Next, we know from clear studies that I will; show you now if you want to read it, that a ton less animals die in crop production than meat, and the biggest thing to remember here, is that over time we can prob. make that 'zero' suffering from crops, meat can never approach that, until of course we get 'lab meat' ;)

Here is the url  that I think you would be wise to read through and make your own decision:

http://www.animalvisuals.org/projects/data/1mc

I read entire thing months ago, and it seems to have used good sources , and is presented logically and professionally.

Other studies exist,but I chose this one, but you can search for others too.

Yes suffering IS contained in life, but a lot of that is necessary as part of the Earths 'ecosystems', and we are not a inherent part of that process as relates to 'food',. but man has injected themselves into it needlessly , at least current era man and all at the expense of the needless suffering of animals, who yes, are our literal equals. We all 'evolved' together, and we should respect all life and as you said and to repeat, do the least suffering.

What I'm hearing from you is what I hear from many who reject empathy and are firmly targeted on 'life is sufering', I hear it all the time, so at least I hope this opens your eyes a tad bit, because not all suffering is creating 'equal' , and to limit is, as you say you want to,is going to put you on a path to veganism.

One last thing, you might as well consider it strongly, because meat is on its way out, because the nasdaq is recommending that people stop investing in meat. Wouldn't you rather be on the side of history that stops meat ingestion for the reason of least harm, vs being told not to, for 'profit' reasons ? ;)

Aaah, fun times (HT +Steve Walsh)
Using the docker command to root the host (totally not a security issue). Docker is an awesome tool that allows their users to create, manage and run Linux Containers with ease. TL;DR: It is possible to do a few more things more with the docker command besides working with containers, ...

Guess who I won't be buying a tractor from (once I can finally afford a tractor...)
 
"If you bought it, you should own it—simple as that. It’s time corporate lawyers left the bullshit to the farmers, who actually need it."

Amen...

Random commentary about food and farming related matters will henceforth be posted at downsouthfarm.com, while ourobengr.com remains the home of all my other crap ;-)
In farming related news, we have pigs again, and I've finally written up my bread recipe on a new blog at downsouthfarm.com. My random commentary about food and farming related matters will henceforth be posted there, while everything else I usually rattle on about at length will remain here.

Regarding data retention
Today I emailed Julie Collins MP, and senators Catryna Bilyk, Carol Brown, Jacqui Lambie, Helen Polley, Lisa Singh and Anne Urquhart concerning data retention. For the record, and in case it helps anyone else who wants to contact their representatives and senators, here's what I wrote: ...
