the horror… D:
One time when I was in the shower, some soap bubbles splashed onto the shower curtain & it looked like a cock & balls, so I giggled to myself. But then it started sliding down the curtain & more bubbles attached to it; so it looked like it had 3 balls & I laughed nervously at it because 3 balls is weird. Then the unimaginable happened and another bubble joined & it looked like it had 4 testicles & I screamed & splashed water on it to make it go away because 4 testicles is a terrifying sight.
The moral of this story is that jokes about extra testicles start a slippery slope to creepypasta.
Last night I slept with the windows slightly cracked open because it’s been in the high 60’s here & even though it was raining, the apartment was stuffy…
this morning I woke up to snow.
the heat was off in the apartment, the windows were open & there was snow.
I don’t think I’ll ever be warm again.
"Two pigeons had sex on my shoulder yesterday!"
"Gulabi Gang" is a gang of women in India who track down and beat abusive husbands with brooms.
this is too thug not to reblog
That’s not all they do - they’ve got more information on their website.
What else they do that is awesome:
- Stop child marriages
- Persuade families to educate girl-child
- Train women in self-defense
- Oppose corruption in administration
- Create awareness about the evils of dowry
- Register FIRs against sex-offenders and abusive husbands
- Publicly shame molesters
- Encourage women to become financially independent
Yesssssssss. Female empowerment is a wonderful thing.
they are glorious…
a note: I’m usually not one to promote violence, so I was happy to read on their website that they’re more about self-defense. They confront the abusive men, hoping for them to see the error of their ways & to end the abuse; it’s only if the men attack them 1st that they fight back.
These are some badass ladies & I love them.
- me: you're not doing your work right, you need to do it like this.
- them: I don't understand.
- me: ok, I'll do your work for you this one time to show you how to do your work.
- them: ok.
- me: see? that's how you do it. I'm going to explain it all again too & leave you notes on how to do it.
- them: *no response*
- The next day...
- them: I don't have any info, so here's my unfinished work.
- me: didn't you get my email with your finished work yesterday?!
- them: no
- me: ok, I'm sending it again. make sure you complete your unfinished work & apply this to your work from today. I left you lots of notes so you should be all set.
- them: *no response*
- them: I just got your email, but I already sent you my unfinished work, so can you finish my work for me?
- me: no... I have my own work to do... don't worry about resending your unfinished, just finish it for your own files & make sure today's work is finished correctly.
- them: ok
- Even later...
- them: you didn't finish my work for me... and I did it wrong again & didn't pay attention to any of the notes you left for me. I'm not working tomorrow.
- me: *screaming with rage into the void forever*
So I saw this today on Pinterest and then found the Etsy link and I have to make a small PSA.
Please do not ever ever ever keep your betta (or any fish for that matter) in a permanent tank this small. EVER.
The seller claims that betta don’t need aeration, filtration, or a lot of water to live a long and healthy life of two years, so a wine bottle is the perfect fashionable tank for them. This is a lie.
Small tanks mean low water temp, which makes betta, a tropical fish, sick. Any good betta tank will have a heater that can be regulated to 80 degrees.
The smallest tank any betta should live in is one gallon, which is nearly three times as much as a wine bottle (or those stupid “betta vases”) will hold. Betta will thrive much better in a three gallon or larger tank.
There is nowhere in this jar for the betta to hide when he’s scared or nap when he’s tired. They do enjoy playing with their humans, but they need some aquarium decor to interact with when you’re not around.
The seller suggests cleaning the tank once a week and that filtration isn’t needed, but bettas eat and poop just like any other fish and create waste that is harmful to them. The small amount of water in this jar should be changed daily, not weekly, to avoid ammonia buildup and remove uneaten food crud. Of course, a daily water change could be avoided with a good sized tank and a nice, slow-current filter.
This person has already sold a number of these upcycled tanks to people who don’t know any better about betta care, and it makes me so sad that their beautiful fish are living unhappy lives.
Reblogging for learning something new and incredibly needed today.
why are people buying pets to be put in something for fucking decoration anyways?? asshats.
seriously fuck people
Re-blogging because this is very important!!!
FISH ARE NOT DECORATIONS!!
FISH ARE LIVING CREATURES!!
As a pet owner it is your responsibility to properly care for your animal!! This tiny creature is depending on you to keep it safe / healthy / happy. A pet is not a disposable play-thing >:(
