It’s alive! Buried deep in the Siberian permafrost scientists found a ‘giant virus’ that has been asleep for 30,000 years. Named Pithovirus sibericum, it contains 500 genes and was revived in the lab. The researchers are now trying to assess if ancient viruses such as this one could pose a threat for humans. via Science Alert/fb
Let’s hope this wasn’t the stupidest thing we’ve ever done.
there are about 16046540210 movies that explain exactly why this could be the stupidest thing we’ve ever done
This goes for all non vegan ‘animal lovers’ out there.
You ARE NOT an animal lover if you love some and eat another.
Shut the fuck up and grow up.
How about you shut the fuck and grow up because veganism isn’t a black and white issue and some people are financially or phyiscally incapable of surviving on a vegan diet?
I love cows. I also love dogs.
I don’t eat dogs because a dog is someones pet, someone loves that animal and I’m not going to take that away from them. If someone had a cow for a pet, I wouldn’t eat it for the same reason I wouldn’t eat a dog.
If there was a dog that was humanely killed for it’s meat and was not someones beloved pet, I would give it a try. Eating meat doesn’t mean someone has a vendetta against the animal it comes from, and eating meat doesn’t mean someone doesn’t believe animals should be treated well in life.
THANK YOU OH MY GOD
PSA:My Mother never told me this! Reblog to save a baby Bird:)
JUST A LITTLE HISTORY FACT MY GRANDFATHER TOLD ME:
The reason this myth was a thing, was because back in the 30’s-50’s or so ( I can’t remember the time)
There was a parasite that was living in birds. It was hard to explain it to children, so they basically made up this myth so children wouldn’t touch the birds incase it carried the parasite.
THE MORE YOU KNOW YEA?
When I got these messages I nearly cried because I felt so bad for her.
And people still wonder why I’m very Anti-Brony.
Its seriously shit like this that makes me want to vomit every time I see a Brony related thing.
Because, Bronies have no fucking feels for people other than themselves and their precious ‘fandom’.
Seriously, FUCK BRONIES.
This is so important.
Listen, what you do for funsies is your own business, but have the sense to LOCK IT UP.
I’ll go one step further and say this:
This is a CHILDREN’S show. For LITTLE GIRLS. By creating pornography and spreading it around on the internet where KIDS can see it, you are effectively pushing them out of the thing that was created FOR them, while simultaneously exposing them to graphic sexual content.
You can kick and scream all you want about how women are stealing your video games and jobs and whatever else, but you’re literally taking the one good thing that young girls have and destroying it with your filth. And yes, it is filth.
Make 2014 the year that pornified ponies die, along with anyone who creates them or gets their rocks off to them.
This practically made me cry. How could this ever be okay?
[Image: An illustration is labeled as a “partial birth abortion”. It shows a person performing an intact dilation and extraction, which is described at the bottom of the image: “The surgeon pulls the fetus into the breech position. He forced scissors into the skull, removes them and inserts a suction catheter through which he suctions out the skull contents.”]
I’m going to tell you a story that my tenth grade biology teacher told me.
So, my teacher had a friend. She was happily married, a Christian, and pregnant. She and her husband were extremely excited about the pregnancy and they couldn’t wait to be parents. She was pretty far along - probably about 7 month in. She went to get a check-up, and her doctor checked out the fetus. Well, it turns out her fetus had hydrochephalus. In this particular case, the fetus’s head had not and would not form enough to even hold the brain inside the skull. If the woman continued the pregnancy, she would give birth to a dead baby, and that’s if it didn’t die in utero and possibly cause sepsis before she had the opportunity to give birth.
So, and this was before the “partial birth abortion ban” was enacted (not when the story was told, but when it took place), the woman opted to get an intact dilation and extraction procedure (since that’s the proper medical term, “partial birth abortion” is a made up term and has no medical relevance).
Do you know what that allowed her to do? What that allows a lot of uterus-bearers in the same predicament to do?
She was able to hold her dead, intact fetus and mourn for it.
Now, she would have to get a procedure that literally rips the fetus apart, since apparently anti-choicers looking for a means to chip away at Roe v Wade think that this is a better alternative to the described procedure above. As the law currently stands, it is now impossible for people like the woman I described to have their fetuses aborted intact so that they can hold them like they wanted to. It is impossible for women like the one I described to have a body to mourn over.
So good job. Because you’re too ignorant to actually know why uterus-bearers get late-term abortion, specifically intact D & X procedures, you’ve essentially made it much harder for those that are experiencing the difficult choice to end a wanted pregnancy to mourn and move on.
But hey, go ahead and continue to consider yourself compassionate. I guess ignorance really is bliss, especially when you can hold up illustrations of medical procedures you don’t understand and hide behind them as if they have any meaning in the face of the reality that you refuse to acknowledge.
This is so sad. I wonder if people realize how poignant this image is, and what it really represents. Suicide/depression is not a phase, it is a disease and an illness that eats away at you every single day. it should be taken just as seriously as cancer or any other terminal illness, and unfortunately, it’s not.
