I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because your judgement and intentions are.

Dutch pol, agriculture 

Not really politics, just numbers. :)

Numbers of animals in the Netherlands.

If you look at the history, you can see there are many fewer farmers, but about the same number of animals.

In short:
3.7 M cow
89 M chicken
11 M pig
1.5 M sheep and goat

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

Arthur C. Clarke

"Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced."

Barry Gehm

"Any technology, no matter how primitive, is magic to those who don’t understand it."

Florence Ambrose (Freefall, Stanley)

"It’s still magic even if you know how it’s done."

Terry Pratchett

Also carnivores:
Hold my schnitzel while I supplement the livestock.

Thinking about these gut microbe shots they are selling. If these microbes are such excellent colonic soldiers, why do they need daily reinforcements? I can understand how they play a role in building back up people with harmed gut flora, but that would mean they are themselves in homeostasis. I mean, if they eat, they reproduce. If they don't, they're useless. I don't get how daily reirrigation with liquids containing yet more of them would be beneficial, except financially.

TIL:

Theoretical models of the Sun's interior indicate a maximum power density, or energy production, of approximately 276.5 watts per cubic metre at the center of the core,[63] which is about the same power density inside a compost pile.

A #timelapse of recent unusual clouds over my neighborhood. These are apparently called mammatus clouds.

Sunset light rendered these unusual clouds with some extra-dramatic color.
