Betta fish anon here again! My friend got his sister to check out the fish and he's swimming now and eating like normal. He's also responded to her shining a flashlight on him, so it seems like he's okay after all.

Sorry I took so long to respond! My main concerns here are whether or not this little guy has a heater and regular water changes. Bettas are tropical and get pretty lethargic without a heater to keep their water around 78-82 degrees Fahrenheit. If he doesn’t have a heater, this could explain why he has been hiding. If his water isn’t cycled, then he’ll need very frequent water changes (at least three or four times a week, more if his tank is smaller than five gallons). Best of luck to the little guy!

Need veiltail betta fish advice: For about the past week, my friend's fish has been staying inside this toy the fish seems to like a lot more than usual. He'll come out to eat, but then after swimming a bit afterwards he goes back into the toy and just stays there. At the moment though he's outside toy leaning against it, but isn't responding to him tapping on the glass and his gills are moving like he's having trouble breathing. My friend is worried he might be about to die or something.

So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?

holy shit

Hey guys, 
I think this photo is so important. So many people think rabbits are just a fluffy animal for them to carry around like a teddy, and think they’re really cheap and easy to look after. Definitely some very important facts that everyone should know.
-batb

And dont bathe rabbits either, it can kill them of the stress it causes

I never knew stress could kill bunnies, passing this along

75% of these facts also apply to myself

^oh my god no!!!!  D:  I’m so sorry you can’t eat iceburg lettuce!  

Why can’t they eat iceberg lettuce?

Mostly water, so it has no nutritional value. It contains a large amount of pesticides. And it can cause diarrhea. There’s much healthier green alternatives for your bun. :)

Thanks for the help, what alternatives would you suggest?

http://rabbit.org/suggested-vegetables-and-fruits-for-a-rabbit-diet/
This is a really good, informative link on healthy alternatives. If you’ve got any more questions, feel free to ask!

Felt that it’s a good time to start re-circulating this post with Easter coming up and all those people who are considering buying bunnies for their kids!!
Rabbits are expensive! Rabbits can be very smelly! Some rabbits need to eat their own poop! Rabbits need to be gently loved and should not be roughhandled by small children!
The typical “frozen bunny trance” is not a sign of being relaxed, but is a sign of being so terrified and stressed that they hope acting dead will get you to leave them alone!!

Easter is this weekend so make sure this spreads like wildfire!!!

Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

Some people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”

By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:

  • Redheads
  • The entire state of Rhode Island
  • Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
  • Pacific Islanders
  • Australia

BABIES

THOSE TINY LITTLE MEOWS OH MY GOSH SO PRECIOUS 

THE BABIES ALL THINK THEIR NAME IS “BABIES”

"Where are the beebies?"

"*mew*"

"Beebies!"

"Mew!"

I will never be truly happy until I have a bathtub full of kittens.

Dear Tiffany, I know you wrote the letter. The only way to beat my crazy was by doing something even crazier. Thank you. I love you. I knew it from the moment I saw you. I’m sorry it took me so long to catch up. I just got stuck. Pat.

That man you see there, he is a 92 year old veteran from Norway, who was tortured by the nazis during world war II. The upper picture is the picture of the “BOY London” logo, that’s so popular now days.Then, on the picture under, is a known symbol that were used under by the nazis in World War II. Now you can all think of what you’re really wearing.

finally someone made a post about it, everyone’s running around with the Third Reich Eagle on their chests

think about it

yes make it known. nobody ever talks about it.

THANK YOU


But—how—does someone not recognize that particular eagle? It was almost as prominent as the swastika in the Third Reich!
FFS, it’s even perched on a circle! The only thing it’s missing is the swastika.
Did schools stop teaching fairly modern history at some point and I just wasn’t aware of it?
