So there’s this song, right? And for the life of me, I can’t help but think of it as the “Crack Ship” song… so yeah.

I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.

Words cannot describe how much I love this post.

These are all extremely fair points

the first one especially speaks to me on a spiritual level

the last one is the most true shit ever

boys get the good shit

girls get “sexy ___”

whats next “sexy object”

because that’s what people are seeing girls as

Windmill slam reblog

But sometimes you want that sexy powerful character so girls can be like “hell fucking yeah she’s hot and can kick ass and I can do the same” like wonder woman

you can be sexy and powerful without being unrealistic

misa-maz asked: Hmmmm, what to prompt you with... Vimes meets the 9th Doctor?

seiya234:

Vimes looked into the box.

Then outside the box.

Then inside the box again.

He looked at the man with the big ears for a second and finally managed, “Are you taking the piss?”

The man with the big ears and leather jacket looked, if possible, even more disgruntled. “Yes, I just like standing around when I could be saving this city fooling old coppers.”

Vimes scowled and went in, ignoring the twinge in his stomach. 

The things he did for Ankh-Morpork.

THIS IS GOLD

the-unpopular-opinions:

This is an opinion brought to you by a rancher, who knows quite a few other ranchers and dairy farms.
I recently watched a documentary called Earthlings, which gets praised on a lot in the Vegan, animal rights, and animal welfare tags.
This documentary is complete, biased, exaggerated, and twisted bullshit (At least when it comes to beef and dairy, which is what I’m talking about)
It opens on beef with branding, showing an animal being hot ironed on the face. In my state, you cannot register to brand a cow on a face. In fact, the face is the least common branding site available, as it can damage the cow’s jaw and make it difficult for her to eat. The most common branding site is the hip, rib, and shoulder, but the documentary simply says, cows are branded on their face.
Does it say why? No. Because obviously we scar our animals for fun, right? Cattle don’t have microchips like a dog. If your dog gets stolen, you can usually find it because of it’s Microchipped. Cows don’t have that. Cows are so expensive, they’re like gold, so often Ranchers brand their cattle. If a cow has a brand, she cannot be sold without the brand owner’s authorization, meaning, someone can not steal young, healthy animals from my pasture, and sell them for slaughter.
Next they go on to dehorning, stating that it is cruel, painful, and often done with simple pliers. HAaha.
If I have an animal, I don’t want to ruin it by painfully tearing off it’s horns. This animal will never let me touch it again!
Most cattle, and I DO mean most, are dehorned either as calves (Less painful, not remembered), or have a shot to numb the area at the base of the horn before it’s CUT off, not YANKED off. This way, the cow can still be handled.
Does the documentary say WHY cattle are dehorned? Does it mention that a cow with horns is a danger to itself, humans, and other animals? No? Of course not!
Beef cattle are not stuffed into trailers until it’s so full the animals die. This makes absolutely no sense. If the animals die before they reach the sale ring or slaughter house, no paycheck for you! You make less money if the animals die before slaughter.
Nothing the documentary covers is explained why. WHY do they do that? It’s biased. It makes it seem like ranchers and farmers WANT to hurt their cattle. They don’t. Most of us get attached to our cows. It exaggerates EVERYTHING
Dairy
According to the documentary, Dairy cattle are CHAINED to their stalls, in their own feces, with no water or food, pumped full of hormones to make them milk more. Wrong.
A dairy barn consists of a long isle down the middle of the barn, with a large alley on each side for the cattle. The cattle can walk down the main alley, or lay in a padded stall. They can stick their head through railings to eat food specially mixed to meet all their needs, or drink water. Dairy barns, because they produce milk that MUST be clean, cannot milk a cow pumped full or hormones and chemicals, and clean their barns daily to avoid bacteria. WOW! It’s almost like we take care of our animals so they produce! WHO KNEW?
Most dairy cattle are allowed to graze in a pasture with their calves, until they’re milked in the morning and the evening. Others keep their cows in a well airated barn. Calves are removed to avoid injury! Calves are often kept it smaller pens, with calf huts, pads, soft bedding, and even blankets! It is counter productive to not care for a calf. A calf is your future cow! Dairy farmers feed them the highest quality milk so the calves grow into strong, productive animals.
Dieing cows are not left in the isles. If a cow begins to appear sick, a vet is called. Simple as that.
The documentary states that a cow’s lifespan can reach 20. WRONG. at the age of 8 or 9, a cow starts to lose her teeth. If you kept a cow alive until 20 she would be malnourished and miserable, unable to eat. The average cow lives until 8 or 9, at which point they are sold. It would be cruel to keep an animal who cannot eat or fulfill it’s own needs.
Cows do not, on average, die at FOUR YEARS OLD because of exhaustion! Four years, at almost any dairy or ranch you visit, is a cow in her PRIME! We do not run our animals to death. We do NOT torture them.
You don’t eat meat? Great! Do your thing! Eat your veggies! That’s fine! But don’t make me out to be devilspawn if I eat meat. Don’t make me out to be cruel, (As stated by the documentary, as cruel as hitler to the jews), because I raise cattle. Fuck. You.
The shit thing about that documentary is it preys on people who have never been on a farm or dairy. If you’ve never been to one, it’s easy to believe things like this. If I made a documentary about how vegans grew their food, and showed it to people who have never met Vegans, or seen how crops are grown, I could easily exaggerate and make Veganism seem horrible, like this documentary does to livestock owners.
Please stop hating on ranchers and farmers. Please?

Signal boost because I’m tired of seeing people on this website base all of their “learnings” on farm life through biased cumentaries. Read it. Learn it.

I used to spend every weekend on my friends dairy farm as a kid. It’s NOTHING like the vegan documentaries suggest.

I grew up on a farm and they care for them so so much. I can’t speak for every farm in the world so that’s why when I eat meat I buy them from farms I know treat their animals well, and don’t do anything the vegan documentaries say.

This reminds me of..idk if it was a documentary or just a group sending hate to farmers. But they were getting angry at farmers cutting off the tails of sheep?Saying it was cruel and unnessacery and caused them great pain. When in reality it was done because the dung from the sheep would cling to the tail beneath it and get infected or something? And attract bugs.So they removed it as harmlessly as possible. They did agree that there should be more painless methods but the farmers in australia aren’t rich people. They can only use the resources they have. anyway.. this reminds me of that. :)

Speaking as the daughter of a fourth generation beef farmer, it makes me so happy to see so many people standing up for farming ;w; 
So if I may, I’d like to add a few things. If anyone wants to learn more about keeping cattle happy, check out Temple Grandin's work. Not only is she an incredible person, but she is an incredible force for the ethical treatment of farm animals. Or check out the Back Scratcher which is absolutely adorable. We’re thinking of getting one here if we can afford it some day. 
But I can’t stress going to a farm enough! If they aren’t busy running around in a field putting the crop in, nothing will make a farmer happier than explaining what they do for a living, and teaching people about the animals they love. My mother used to bring out the kinder garden class to our farm every year. She’d show them everything she could in an hour, and clear up the misconceptions that they had (like that brown cows give chocolate milk, and only boy cows have horns).
(On a side note, I couldn’t agree more with the comment about the horns. I’ve seen too many animals and farmers get beaten up by an animal with horns, who got it into their head that they were king shit. All the cow/calf farmers we deal with are told to dehorn their calves early on if they want to sell them to us, to keep that animal, and the whole herd, safe and healthy.)

In conclusion, keeping their animals happy and safe is the number one priority for every farmer I know.

i reblog this every single time

this is my favorite post on this whole website

Fun fact: (genetic) men see fewer shades of red than (genetic) women do because the gene that allows for the color perception of red exists only on the X chromosome, so women have twice the red-perception powers. The theory is, because women were typically gatherers, they needed to be able to tell the difference between poisonous berries and non-poisonous ones based on their color. (source)

So, to a man, something may appear to be simply red. But to a woman, it can be ruby, brick, rust, maroon, crimson… or blood orange.

I’m a woman an this is fuckin red.

I’m a male who scored perfect color recognition. Blood orange is a darker shade than the fabric, with more of an orange tint to it. It’s like rust color, but paler.

That is fucking red.

i have 2 X chromosomes and perfect colour vision and i too can confirm that that is fucking red
