Sunburn, Ozone and You.

Wear extra sunscreen in North America, especially this spring as the insanely bitter cold winter and repeated “polar vortexes” which swept across North America have made the (annual springtime) ozone hole nastier than usual.

Feminist-a person who supports feminism.

Feminism-the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

Unfortunately, “Tumblr Feminism” has a different definition.

Anonymous asked: Hi! you seem to know your fish stuff. So I was wondering what kind of plants would be good for a betta, or if there are any I should avoid? and if you could recommend any certain kind of substrate? Also, what kind of care do aquatic plants require? Does the treatment of water (cycling, dechlorinator, etc.) have to be any different? Basically can you tell me everything I need to know about going planted? Or link me to some articles? Haha

Hello, ANON! :D 

I, unfortunately, have a knack of killing all my plants. (All of them. Every. Last. One. I killed “Wysteria” Which is a weed. I killed a weed. Let that sink in.)

So, m’dear! I direct you to the people who know their stuff:

peaceypanic, fishmostly, fishesnstuff, smaugthebetta

I’m sorry I can’t help more! D: I wish I could. ;c; 

Ah! No, I’m afraid I’m not knowledgable in the planted tank area, sorry :c. I’m actually looking into it ( possibly going planted in a few months, but trying to do some research first so I do it right), but I’m fairly new to the whole fish thing so I am not the person to come to for help. I’m flattered though!

eep ! Sorry! ;c;

I just figured since your betta was probably the most precious thing ever you maybe had a few tips! But… anon, you should follow them anyway because they’re awesome

Hehe he is pretty adorable isnt he :3 but nahh, I can help with other things, like general care and what not, but not so much with live plants. I’m working on that. But it’s all good! (:

Water conditioner: amquel or prime

Substrate: ecocomplete plant, flourite(rinsed well), or cheap play sand with root tabs.

I say star off with things like anacharis, water sprite(any hygrophila variation), Anubis grows kind of slow, check out plantedtank.net for plant profiles, very useful!

Fyi, wisteria isn’t compatible with hornwort or milfoil.

Many plants fight each other with toxins they release in the water.

This is why it’s important to scrape algae and do water changes afterward.

some people think that school food isnt all that bad and that we’re just whiny teenagers
u fucking get a rock solid jug of rotten milk then tell me that we’re just whiny teenagers

My freshman year of high school i got applesauce for lunch and when I opened it, a cloud of mold poofed out I feel this post on an emotional level

I broke my pb&j sandwich on the table once, it smashed into 7 pieces.

our hot dogs in elementary school were green

Our school would actually recycle pizza (it was pizza by definition only. However, it tasted and looked like cardboard with watery spaghetti sauce and the cheese you’d scrape off of a man’s ball-sack who hadn’t showered since 1989). If you didn’t eat the “pizza” from yesterday, they’d put a layer of new cheese on it, bake it again, and serve it to you. One time, I swear they re-cheesed/baked a pizza for a straight week until someone actually ate it. They were never seen again… If that sounds like I’m telling you a horror story, that’s because I am.

We had supposed french fries; it was legit very raw and cold potato fried in stale breading. Most of teh meat wasn’t actually what they said it was and if you asked what was in something just in case cause of allergies or religious beliefs, they would actually fucking give you detention for hurting the lunch peoples feelings.

Supposedly, our school served ‘spaghetti’ which looked more like cooked up worms [not kidding, they did NOT look like fucking noodles bitches] and the sauce was more of this meaty…tomato juice concoction and the parmesian cheese? That’s a fucking joke, it was nothing but powder! No, not like the stuff you get at the stores I mean it was like one of those baby powder type of thing, that’s how bad the parmesian was! Needless to say people got heartburn, and thrown up because of it. They still serve it.

ATTENTION PEOPLE: 

IF YOU FIND ANY EXPIRED/ROTTING FOOD IN YOUR SCHOOL YOU TAKE IT TO THE PRINCIPAL AND DEMAND THAT THE FOOD BE REPLACED FOR HEALTH CODE VIOLATIONS. IF THEY REFUSE TAKE THE EXPIRED FOOD TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AND THREATEN TO CALL THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 

My mother did this when I told her our school was serving expired milk- it hadn’t even turned yet, it was only a few days older than the expiration date and the school GOT IN TROUBLE with the school district. After that they NEVER served expired foods again because the health department came down HARD on their asses. As an establishment providing food, they are required BY LAW (In America at least) to uphold proper health code violations. The school and even the school district CAN be sued if their food is proven to be unhealthy to consume and they do nothing about it. 

So PLEASE don’t just throw it away. TAKE THE EVIDENCE WITH YOU

I contracted spinal meningitis from my highschool, along with like 8-10 other kids(atleast the reported cases in hospitals) and the hole school had to be closed and sanitized.

Like.

School is supposed to be safe haven, not a fucking death trap.

Someone spread mercury around our school, contaminated several students, caused hazard cleanup teams to be called, the area around the school to be sealed off, and who knows only what emotional/psycholgical/physical damage to the student body.

Our food was always great tho.

Idk if y’all can read the chatlog there but the fella stopped playing when we kicked his buddy for being afk. For those not aware, you CAN report this and GM’s actually DO respond (or at the least, look into it).
Any player who tries to threaten you by saying you can get in trouble for reporting them because they aren’t doing anything wrong is lying. For being guilty little scaredy-shits and trying to scare you into not reporting them, report them twice!
FFXIV isn’t like WoW. You can be permabanned for this kind of shit.
