Hero

Most certainly NOT a hero. When you release captive animals into the wild you are not saving them, you are causing them to suffer and die slow, miserable deaths. Releasing these animals is simply an ego boost to people who want to pretend they’re helping animals when in reality they’re only harming them. 

This is what happens when mink are released from fur farms;

These mink cannot survive in the wild. They have no idea how to hunt, how to avoid danger, how to find shelter or anything, so they either get hit by cars, starve to death, die from the elements or attacked by other animals. Mink are also extremely aggressive towards others of their species and releasing so many into one area inevitably results in a mink hunger games, where they will attack and kill each other. Physically, they are also far too removed from their wild cousins to do well in the wild. Farmed mink are much larger and heavier, with colors that put them at a huge disadvantage and a coat that isn’t as weather or waterproof as wild mink.

Released mink are also extremely damaging to the environment. The few that do survive become ruthless predators and push native species into extinction. In the UK the water vole is facing extinction purely because of mink released from fur farms. In some places they also compete with the native, wild mink, as well as other native predators, taking away vital space and food from them. 

Don’t pretend this kind of thing helps animals because it most certainly does not. 

Feel good solutions are rarely the correct ones. If you really don’t like fur farms, lobby, try and pass laws. Don’t release what could become an invasive species, causing the suffering of many more animals than just those mink.

#TBT to jaw-dropping Book 1 and Book 2 finale moments.

Who’s ready to see how Book 3 ends tomorrow?????

I felt like the ending to SE1 was far more impactful than SE2. I still need to watch…any of SE3. >.>

GOP Politician Tweets That Transgender People Should Go To Concentration Camps

Todd Kincannon later conceded that, if concentration camps aren’t going to work, “mental institutions will do just fine”


Trust me, there’s more than just trans people he wants to see in camps, but this is what will give him the least backlash.

PASS THIS ON LIKE A JOINT AT A COLLEGE PARTY, FOLLOWERS. I WANT TO SEE THIS FUCKER FACE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES FOR THIS DISGUSTING THING.

seriously…

Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.

Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS

BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc

You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE

Also bottled water is like, the biggest fucking racket ever. You’re PAYING for something you already get for FREE. Get a filter. Or if you’re like me, and can’t get one (that works worth a damn) you can get big 5 gallon drums, a small hand pump for it, and refill them at the store. (I pay 3.02 for five gallons of water at a time). And we only do this because our tap water is so hard I can see the calcium deposits on it when it dries on the glass. Before we lived here, we just straight up drank from the tap.
