Come tell me the exact difference between telling a thin person for 10 years that their body is ugly, sickly, unhealthy, disgusting, boyish (if they’re a girl), and comparable to an inanimate object
And telling a fat person they’re ugly, disgusting, sick, unhealthy, and comparable to an animal.
Why should one person be defended over the other?
Why is a fat person’s feelings valued more over a thin person’s?
Fuck you for thinking thin shaming isn’t real.
Non chemical way to get rid of fire ants is…1 1/2 ounces of Medina Orange Oil and 3 ounces of BLUE Dawn and 1 gallon of hot water. Mix and pour over ant mounds or spray around outside base of the home. Hope this helps.
There is now a measles outbreak in New York. A whole ward of cancer patients currently undergoing chemotherapy have been exposed to it. Imagine fighting cancer for years only to die because some jackass didn’t vaccinate their brat and you caught measles.
Some of the children were not even old enough to get the vaccine. And the flu can kill especially those with compromised immune systems do you throw this much shit at people that dont get flu shots as you do people that dont want to vaccinate their kids just because the government told them too? You dont understand that there are reasons people dont vaccinate that dont include the desire to kill people? And what about things like the polio outbreak that was caused by the vaccine? Nope all anti vax parents are homicidal. While we are at it lets ban travel to places with exotic diseases. And confined spaces like planes, those can be dangerous. We should probably ban cars. Imagine fighting cancer for years just to die in a car accident. Thats preventable. Back to horses we go! People are so foolish. This is not how you try to get people to vaccinate their children. This simply shows you have a shallow view of the issue.
Getting kicked in the face by a horse can be fatal, and so can being thrown off of one.
Any disease can be fatal to an immuno-compromised person, such as those undergoing chemo and radiation therapies. (Including hospital staph infections!!)
I vaccinate my children, but c’mon!
mashkwi- I had one of those last year, but the strings kept getting tangled up on it, because I had to take it down every time there was a big storm, and especially for Trop storm warnings. I “gave” it way by setting it next to the dumpster. It was gone the next day, haha.
They are pretty handy for small yards, though, and I don’t think you’d have the same problems that I had with it.
The only thing that kind of sucks about hanging your clothes out to dry is that the first load doesn’t get dry by the time the second load is done washing. Super sadface, I suppose.
Still, I’m looking at all the money I’m saving by not running my dryer for over 5 hours today and I am no longer super sadface. :)
I don’t know off hand. I’ll have to research. I try to avoid drinking sugary sodas and such, and I don’t support giants like pepsi or coke. I’m gonna go on a limb and speculate their products are not vegan.
here is a discussion on a vegan forum where they discuss pepsi from all angles
let me paste the ingredients list:
Carbonated Water, Caramel Color, Phosphoric acid, Aspartame, Potassium Benzoate, Caffeine, Natural flavor, Acesulfame potassium, Citric acid, Calcium disodium EDTA, Panax ginseng extract.
Right off the bat I see a few red flags:
1. caramel color - what is that? what actually is the color? lets google it
"Consumer Reports is warning the caramel coloring that gives cola its brown hue may be dangerous in the levels its found in some popular soft drinks."
2. phosphoric acid - Phosphoric acid is a clear, colorless, odorless liquid with a syrupy consistency.
- commonly used for rust removal
- Phosphoric acid has been linked to lower bone density in some epidemiological studies
- Cola consumption has also been linked to chronic kidney disease and kidney stones
3. aspartame (tested on animals) - an artificial, non-saccharide sweetener used as a sugar substitute in some foods and beverages
4. I would highlight caffeine as a hazardous substance, which is in fact, a neurotoxin, but I will digress and focus on others. (full disclosure: i drink coffee but would like to quit in the future)
5. natural flavor - a deliberately vague ingredient that can mean absolutely anything. a common “natural flavor” is castoreum, derived from beaver’s castor glands to enhance certain vanilla or raspberry flavors. (source)
6. Acesulfame potassium (animal tested)- a calorie-free sweetener that has been used in foods and beverages.
some sources say it’s a carcinogen, other sources say it’s 100% safe. guess what I think.
7. Calcium disodium EDTA - a chemical salt used to separate heavy metals from dyes and other substances.
dangers of calcium disodium include environmental damage during production, and toxicity in humans in high amounts. (source)
So there you go. At least two ingredients are certainly animal tested, so, not vegan. And many ingredients are sketchy at best. My advice: Don’t ever drink it.
I’ll admit outright some of the sources I’ve provided could be biased. Regardless, substances like pepsi, coke or mountain dew are NOT things any human body needs. So, even if every ingredient was actually safe, totally harmless, and not animal tested, it’s still not something i would be interested in consuming.
as a rule of thumb, it’s never a good idea to support giant companies like coke and pepsi. alternatives exist if one MUST drink soda often, but people need to be advised that even “healthy” sodas have a lot of sugar, which isn’t good either.
less soda, more water!
Coffee and tea are pretty good sources of caffeine. Tea especially if you can’t stomach coffee. Just be careful what you buy because a lot of it on the market is full of pesticides and shit.
I just bought a ‘45 Mercury Dime for $6.00, and it is in really good condition. It’s either “near-perfect” or “perfect.” I came home and looked it up, and it is worth $20-30. I think I may have found a bargain!
My coin collection is really starting to take off! I think I’m going to go back to that Flea Market next weekend, and buy more coins!
Fact: Pansexuals are known as pansexuals due to their lovely habit of using pans to make breakfast in bed as a romantic surprise for their any-gendered and/or agendered significant other.
And bisexuals just buy breakfast instead.
I would really like to have at least one more after this one. I’d like to have that excitement of ttc and having people genuinely being excited that we’re having a child, but not for 5-10 more years!
I never want to be pregnant again. I was just too high risk and I don’t want…
I want one more when I get my Mirena out in a little over 4 years!
Four! I want four ! Hopefully 2ish years apart in age!!
One more for sure, but if we have another boy I think I’d want a third & try for a girl. I don’t want to get pregnant again for another year.. year & a half.
I want a boy!!!! Hopefully in a year and a half we’ll start trying again. Them I’ll be through
I honestly want twins the next time I get pregnant. They run on both sides of our families so we have a chance. But if I can’t get that I want a girl. We will be TTC October of 2016!
I want 2 more after bean.
3, or 4. Definitely no more than 4.
We just want one more after Connor. Two kids would be enough but ~if~ a third were to come we wouldn’t be any less excited about it. (:
We want 2 soon (2.5-3years apart) and perhaps another down the line ~5 years after the second.
2-4 MAYBE. Hopefully about three years apart.
I used to want 3, but now I am done at 2. 2 is too stressful at times, so I am done.
