8 true things - an annoying meme

Animal Friendly tagged me so I must comply. But, not before changing the intent. :) I was tagged with a meme called 8 true things where I am supposed to tell you 8 true things about me. I'm going to tell you 8 true things, but not about me. And then I am going to further break the rules and not tag anyone.

The Meme:
First, the rules
1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Random facts/habits:
1. Milk contains pus. And therefore cheese, yogurt, and butter all contain pus.
2. Eggs are the byproduct of a chicken's menstual cycle.
3. Over 10 billion animals are killed for food in the US every year (not including fish).
4. Your dog/cat is no different from a pig or cow. You just find them to be cuddlier. In some countries people eat dogs and cats. Pigs are smarter than your dog.
5. Dairy cows are killed after they no longer produce enough milk (about 4 years old).
6. Baby male cows are taken from their dairy cow mothers almost immediately after they are born and either sent to slaughter or to a veal farm. They are fed a formula made from cow's blood because humans drink their milk.
7. When breeding chickens for eggs, the male chicks are ground up alive into fertilizer or suffocated in trash bags because they are not useful in egg production (and they won't grow big enough to be used as a "fryer" chicken).
8. Going vegan is not hard. It is acutally very easy.
