This weeks peculiar image was taken this summer by a friend of mine. He went to a birdmarket in Esfahan, Iran and noticed that discrimination takes many forms; only blond chicks were excluded from taking the happy shower...

Old post true but this I just have to comment on. Those easter chicks are something my grandmother down on the farm would inevitably end up getting every year after Easter when the chicks wouldn't die after a couple of days like expected. They grow into a nasty, mean tempered, big chicken. Their eggs aren't worth eating and neither are they. Probably why they were dyed and sold in the first place. No sense in wasting usable chickens after all.

they actually die in a few days because of the paint which kills them.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
