This is why I’m excited to move to Portland.
@MercyForAnimals’s Fowl Play - Reactions from my morning class after seeing the video on the egg industry in the US.
Wow… I mean there isn’t much to say. That was brutal.
Heart wrenching. It is wrong to treat any living creature with such hatred, and treated like they are not worthy breathing the same air we breathe.
This video was very hard to watch. I had no idea that this is what was really going on. This makes me want not to eat eggs and meat anymore.
I’m mortified. Speechless.
Until now I didn’t know that animals are being raised in such bad environments. The documentary helped me to understand why many people who want to save those animals join social movements.
Animal cruelty is wrong and I think if everyone acted against it something could be done.
It was unbelievable. It is crazy that people can get away with that kind of cruelty.
This video was so saddening and terrible to watch.
It disgusts me to watch these documentaries. It makes me want to stop eating meat and become an animal rights activist.
Very gruesome. Animals shouldn’t have to go through life like that. This movie really opened my eyes to what is really going on.
What the hell is wrong with these greedy industries? Where is the justice?
I was sick watching this and completely shocked. I want to quit eating meat and eggs.
Absolutely unbelievable, disturbing, and unsettling.
I will try not to eat meat, milk, eggs, or what every causes animal suffering.
I wasn’t aware of all the conditions that these animals really went through and it’s absolutely terrible.
I was appalled and very unaware of what was going on in these factories. I think this is something that everyone should know and try to support the movement against animal cruelty.
I’m becoming vegetarian. I’m repulsed by how the poor helpless animals are treated and it makes me so sad.
This video was very surprising. I never thought chickens passed through such conditions. It is the most enlightening video I ever saw my whole life.
I think this type of treatment toward animals is horrific. It makes me sick.
I am so completely disgusted by what I saw that I am considering becoming a vegan.
My sister is a vegetarian for this reason. Actually, seeing it makes me want to do the same.
Opened my mind to how good the factory farms are at hiding the living conditions of the animals they torture.
The treatment of the animals is not humane. It is very sad.
I had no idea that the industry was like that, I never dreamed that the things I eat come from places like that.
This documentary was extremely difficult to watch and it made me wonder what I can do and what we can do as humans to change things.
This video was very sad. I think political leaders should draft legislation to prevent this from happening.
I find it bewildering that this much goes on “behind the scenes” and consumers are completely unaware of it. I think that the condition and realities presented in the video are absolutely deplorable and truly unbelievable.
I told my mom I was going vegetarian in January. She freaked out at the time but I definitely will now.
I love eggs and found this very alarming… not sure if I can eat them again.
I cried…like balled. That changed my whole life perspective. I can’t believe I supported this practice my whole life. I feel stupid for doing this to animals since I was little.
How I will be spending this Saturday. Not sure if I will be on the “sanity” or the “fear” side. Still have time to decide. @sanityrally
Food Inc.- Reactions from my Introduction to Sociology class after seeing it this morning. Can’t wait to show them Earthlings.
“My reaction would be shocked.”
“I knew the food industry was poorly conducted, but I didn’t know the extent.”
“I think it is disgusting”
“Every time I see this movie, a sense of fear is brought to me.”
“Why hasn’t this been addressed sooner?”
“After seeing the first half of this documentary, I definitely do not feel like eating at the dining hall.”
“I never really have seen the process of chickens being grown, killed, etc, it was really sad.”
“It worries me that our country is moving in a direction where money and mass production is more important than the health and safety of the citizens.”
“The way the food industry processes their food makes me not want to eat food made from factories again.”
“I’m repulsed by how inconsiderate mass production industries are, not only to the consumers (like the 2 yr old boy who died) but also to the animals.”
“I am completely disgusted by our government.”
“This documentary is eye opening.”
“My reaction consists of disgust and shock.”
“It makes you want to change how you eat completely.”
“Government regulation does not work when the regulators work for the industry they regulate.”
“It is scary to know how no one is aware of the types of things that go on in the food industry.”
“Becoming a vegetarian definitely became an option.”
“My reaction is that I am appalled.”
“I don’t want to eat food anymore.” “I don’t like meat anymore!”
“I feel bad eating meat.”
“This movie really opened to my eyes to an issue I have tried to ignore.”
“This movie makes me want to A) never eat anything again from the supermarket and B) sue those corporate food controlling companies for every cent they own (obviously I would lose). Makes me mad.”
“I’m considering going back to being a vegetarian.”
“The fact that the meat industry is doing this disgusts me.”
“I never had a problem with where food came from, but its probably because I never stopped to think of where it comes from.”
“I don’t think that I realized how terrible the food we eat was until I watched this video. It kind of makes me not want to eat meat.”
“I am shocked from the video.”
“I am shocked and disgusted. Thinking about becoming a vegetarian.”
“This video has was disturbing. It made me think twice about the things that I consume everyday.”
“I’m becoming a vegetarian. That was horrible to watch and I’m disgusted.”

I think that pumpkin has been overserved.
I love fall, I love how the leaves change colors and how the weather turns cool.
I’m stoked to go pumpkin picking this year and carve a badass jack-o-lantern.
Halloween is going to be sick this year with my friends.
Because we don’t know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. And yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can’t even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, or five times more? Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless…
I beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps, then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even knowing it, live your way into the answer.
Response to Pro Animal Testing Sign in LA:
I saw the same billboard in LA last night. In response to Animal Testing: Dr. Charles Mayo.
“I abhor vivisection. It should at least be curbed. Better, it should be abolished. I know of no achievement through vivisection, no scientific discovery, that could not have been obtained without such barbarism and cruelty. The whole thing is evil.”
-Dr. Charles Mayo, founder of the Mayo Clinic (New York Daily News, Mar. 13, 1961)
