Everyone was "build" out of flesh, and your Body eats up some parts (like the eat cells who take care that some cells dont grow to much ) so you cant be vegan anyway..

As the same stuff happens in Farm Animals as in us, I would assume they also have these cells that eat the stuff in the body ..
Cancer Cells are also our own Cells, but the mechanism that takes care that they can’t grow wild was damaged ..

Proteins get recycled indeed. But this recycling does not cause suffering nor does it damage health or the environment. I am not actually vegan anyway, because I still consume stolen bee puke. But I am not buying it anymore. That is my project, stop stealing honey from bees. Stealing honey is much less bad than torturing animals in torture camps, but stealing honey is still pretty mean. Here is another project: finding an good alternative to put in my tea or becoming a real man by getting used to unsweetened tea.

I just switched to water. I might add flavor to my warm water with herbs. If you really need sweetness in your drink maple syrup works, I used to use raw coconut blossom sugar.

Also, deviating from the topic about projects...
I'm working on more VR related work and trying to make steps to visit a big companies cleanroom (you never know it can't happen until you try).

Odd project I just did for my Car, a 2019 Subaru WRX. Last year I had the entire 6-speed Manual Transmission and Drivetrain swapped with the STi version ( not entirely cheap, but feel it was worth it), which gives it a Limit Slip Differential and more importantly a central Differential that can be adjusted to lock by user control or automatic modes,It can go from a near 70% Rear to 30% front split with various locking amounts to a full locking mode that sets the power distribution to 50% Rear and Front wheels for gravel or extreme snow etc...
It's pretty nice, but since I have a WRX and not an STi I was lacking the dash cluster displays that shows the Differential Locking amount and I was running an aftermarket Differential ( DCCD ) controller that sits under the Center console, so I didn't have access to the controls directly on the DCCD controller without opening the lid on the arm rest, so not entirely convenient. Since it wasn't entirely straight forward to adapt the more modern 2019 STi controls with my aftermarket setup, So I did a bit of an electronics project to adapt the older 2004-2007 STi controls which utilizes the holes where the heated seat switches are mounted and since Subaru doesn't change much of anything for 20+ years these control switches just slotted into where I would have heated seat switches if I wasn't cheap.

As for a display, I pretty much implemented what would have been in an older STi a series of Lights that show if the DIffs are locked, and the aggressiveness of the locking, if it's in an Auto Mode or manual. I designed a simple LED display based around a dash cluster driver that was provided with the aftermarket MapDCCD differential controller, 3D printed an enclosure with PETG plastic that can handle temperatures of a hot car in the Summer. The display bezel itself Is using a multi material 3D Print using a black opaque to make the shape of the symbols and a transparent material to allow the LED light to shine through. I covered it with some black tinting material to clean up the display and hide some of the printing marks.

My goal is to eventually get rid of this Simple LEDs with a more advanced oLED display with more information and better looks, this is version 1.0. I'll need to get a display and micro-controller and program it to do cool things, that will take time.

Just some additional information adapting the original 2004-2007 STi controls to the Aftermarket DCCD controller requires a 0-5V Signal on the Thumbwheel, which I only had a 12V source handy, so I used a a TSR 1-2450 5V Switching regulator, one of those cool drop-in replacements for the 7805 that is really efficient and doesn't require a heat-sink.

Some early testing:

Quick circuitry layout I threw together:

The 2004-2007 STi DCCD controls adapted in my 2019 WRX (direct fit):
