Weight should be like virginity.
Once you lose it you can’t get it back.
Ohhhh. I thought you were gonna say “Weight should be like virginity: a societal ideal by which we shouldn’t measure our personal worth.”

Somebody tried to stump this squid by putting it in front of a background that its camouflage mechanisms could never hope to imitate…
So it turned itself transparent.
stick it to the man, Squid.
What isn’t wrong with SeaWorld? Here’s just a small portion of things:
-Mother and calf separation as young as 1 years old. (In the wild, they’re together for life.)
-Artificial insemination by physically jerking off the animals and using their hands to insert the sperm.
-Though they haven’t caught wild orcas in a long time, they fund it on the sly.
-Food deprivation when VIP guests visit or if there’s to be an inspection.
-Lack of regard for the safety of trainers.
-Spending just 0.0001% of their profit on conservation but claiming they’re huge conservationists.
-Misinforming the public and on occasion, actually lying to them. Particularly on the life expectancy of wild orcas.
-Claiming they support educating people to care for the ocean during their orca shows but not putting any education into their shows what so ever.
-Claiming they always do rescue and release when 1. they have NEVER released an orca (because they’re the money making machines) but 2. they never follow up on the releases they have done so for all we know, they could all be dead. Part of a good rescue and release program is a check up at least a year later, to ensure that the animal survived. SeaWorld does not do that, and instead dumps the animal back into the ocean and claims this as “success”. The following quote about SeaWorld is pretty revealing about their attitudes regarding release:
"I worked at SeaWorld in San Diego. Had my season pass. My husband was a bait fisherman in SD. He and other commercial fisherman complained constantly that when Sea world rescued injured sea lions they would try to train them and if they were untrainable they would release them and the sea lion is half trained and not fearful of humans. These sea lions become a problem and as a result are killed by fisherman. I worked in the employee lounge at sea world and I heard trainers talk about the release of animals that they tried to train. I heard the concern for certain ones.I do not believe that SeaWorld should be allowed to capture and train any more whales and they should not be allowed to breed anymore.” - comment from Tonya Belden, worked at SeaWorld San Diego.
And another quote from this link:
"As for the rescue program…Some were saved and released, but if it didn’t bring in money, it was not considered valuable by the management.
We rescued a Risso’s dolphin in TX and worked day and night to bring that little guy (Turbo) up to healthy status. They moved her to the whale and dolphin stadium, gave her several types of psychotropic drugs, and she died within hours of receiving the drugs. The use of psychotropic drugs was NOT uncommon. When the Vet (Les Dalton) got the call saying she had died, his response was “Well, we got rid of that problem, didn’t we”.”
-They won’t hire ‘ugly’ trainers.
-Claiming they don’t have enough money to retire their animals but the CEO threw himself a $3 million dollar birthday in his mansion that’s larger than all the SeaWorld orca tanks combined.
-Calling the diets of their orcas ‘restaurant quality’ when in reality, it doesn’t even match what they’d have eaten in the wild.
-They drug their animals.
-Dumping litres and litres of toxic chemicals into the ocean then having the audacity to say that they are all about saving it.
-Forcing orcas to get onto the ‘slide out’ (where they sit out of water and have their organs crushed under their vast weight). This includes heavily pregnant orcas. See ‘Gudrun' but if you want a more recent example, they’re still doing this to Kalia right now.
-Forcing infants to become pregnant.
I could go on…
Hello, I have a goldfish who has outgrown what I can provide for her. She was a carnival fish, and I knew they get big. I had her in a 20gal planted tank, but she’s gotten so big in the short year I’ve had her. She needs to be in a pond in a loving home. Her name is Asahina, and she’s very sweet and friendly. She loves people and I want her to go to a good home with someone who will love and care for her. I live in SE Michigan.
This is Ella, our 3 year old Shih Tzu.
She needs your help. On July 21st, Ella was horribly injured when a van ran her over and fled the scene.
Little Ella has already had two surgeries: one to rebuild her broken pelvis and set her shattered leg and another to reattach both tubes from her kidneys, which got unattached from the impact, to her bladder.
Our family is doing everything we can to care for this wonderful little Shih Tzu that we rescued from the ASPCA shelter just 3 months ago. But the vet bills have reached $15,000 and are piling up every day, while Ella is still in urgent care.
We have reached the limit of our credit. Our family just moved into a new house, where our rent is higher. We are already struggling with that, and can’t afford this at all. This is a serious situation, and everyone wants our baby home.
At this moment Ella is getting a blood transfusion. She needs to be in her forever home where she can be cared for and loved and continue to heal.
Please reach in your heart and donate whatever you can. The situation is desperate and every dollar counts. Thank you so much!
*forgets to talk to friends for 4 weeks*
lol I changed what gay autocorrects to in my friends phone so he’ll stop using it as a derogatory term.
so i texted him pretending i was coming out of the closet and this is fantastic
Honestly can’t wait for the 50 shades movie to normalize the manipulation of lower-level female employees. Can’t wait for the new wave of “consent is sexy” banners on the cover of cosmo. Can’t wait for teen girls to think that a controlling relationship is romantic. Can’t wait for sexualized violence to become increasingly mainstream. And most of all, I can’t wait for BDSM to be labeled a feminist revolution.
Wait do American people not call their friends mate?? Is this a thing???
Yup. I’m sure some do but mostly people just say friend. Which is boring but whatever.
Wait so you go up to your friends and be like “Hello friend.”
we use names

Pls helb poof birb obtain millet seeb.
I am in need of surgery and I need donations to help get me to America in order to pay for the operation. The surgery costs about £120,000 (about $200,000) and my family simply cannot afford that. This surgery is going to give me a second…
BUT IM LOOKING AT THIS ON MY PHONE
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN
I just think every driver should read this.
Too many people are oblivious to these facts, mainly because they’ve never been in or driven a truck hauling horses.
This applies to semi trucks, too. The cargo is less important, but they weigh 80 tons, people. Basically, if it has a trailer, drive carefully around it and give it space. If you don’t, someone could die.
I live in a rural area, so pretty much everyone around here is aware and careful around animal trailers, but I’ve been in more urban spaces where I’ve noticed people being absolute shit-holes about it. Please be careful, people. Use your damned heads.
