I’ll be doing this AMA from 1500GMT to 1800GMT (10am EDT to 1pm EDT).

Just a little pet peeve... EDT is Eastern Daylight Time which means the Eastern Time Zone during Daylight Saving Time.

EST on the other hand means Eastern Standard Time which means the Eastern Time Zone outside of Daylight Saving Time.

Daylight Saving Time in much of the Eastern Time Zone runs from the second Sunday in March at 2 AM to the first Sunday in November at 2 AM.

As such, we are currently in standard time so saying EDT is incorrect. To be completely precise you should say EST but to be honest my preference is for people to just say Eastern when you mean Eastern.

I haven't eaten red meat in 25 years because I just don't like it. I guess I don't understand your motive though. If we are raising animals for the purpose of slaughtering and consuming them and their children, does it matter much how many times they can turn around in a cage? Their life is going to be a hellish torture no matter what we do so long as people continue to eat meat.

EDIT: downvote away I don't care. I don't even have a proverbial (or literal) horse in this race because I don't eat red meat. But it sounds hypocritical of meat eaters to turn a 1-10 torture scale from a 9.9 to a 9.7 and celebrate their great humanity.
