It is titled 'The Sexing of Baby Chicks and How to Write More Better'. I figured some folks here might get something useful out of it, so I thought I'd mention it.

Many years ago I was on a plane and I asked the man next to me what he did. He explained that he was a chicken sexer. He told me the same story about how one learns to become one, except in his case they used a mild electric shock to indicate that the trainee had made a mistake.

I guess we learn faster that way.
