My mom’s a teacher and today is the school’s prom. My sister and I jokingly said that we would give her ‘the talk’, something she said she looked forward to. Instead of having ‘the talk’ I came up with this powerpoint.
I added gifs to the presentation although when you view it the gifs won’t move. All of them are gifs except for the Bates Motel image.
I hope you get a laugh out of it the way that my mom did.
The slides are red because the school colors are red and gray.
Hey, guys, here’s a list of the major websites that were impacted by the Heartbleed bug and what their current status is (this was created only a few hours ago so it’s up-to-date). Thankfully, the most important site of all (meaning, the site that would really fuck you over if it was hacked into), PayPal, was never vulnerable in the first place, so if you use PayPal, your credit card and bank account information has always been safe.
Don’t ever feel offended if I don’t answer your asks or anons or memes. I’m not ignoring you. I would never ignore anybody on purpose. Either tumblr ate them or I had every intention to and I just forgot.
So this is basically a reminder that I’m human and a terrible one at that so don’t hate me for my flaws because I have a lot of them.
So I saw this today on Pinterest and then found the Etsy link and I have to make a small PSA.
Please do not ever ever ever keep your betta (or any fish for that matter) in a permanent tank this small. EVER.
The seller claims that betta don’t need aeration, filtration, or a lot of water to live a long and healthy life of two years, so a wine bottle is the perfect fashionable tank for them. This is a lie.
Small tanks mean low water temp, which makes betta, a tropical fish, sick. Any good betta tank will have a heater that can be regulated to 80 degrees.
The smallest tank any betta should live in is one gallon, which is nearly three times as much as a wine bottle (or those stupid “betta vases”) will hold. Betta will thrive much better in a three gallon or larger tank.
There is nowhere in this jar for the betta to hide when he’s scared or nap when he’s tired. They do enjoy playing with their humans, but they need some aquarium decor to interact with when you’re not around.
The seller suggests cleaning the tank once a week and that filtration isn’t needed, but bettas eat and poop just like any other fish and create waste that is harmful to them. The small amount of water in this jar should be changed daily, not weekly, to avoid ammonia buildup and remove uneaten food crud. Of course, a daily water change could be avoided with a good sized tank and a nice, slow-current filter.
This person has already sold a number of these upcycled tanks to people who don’t know any better about betta care, and it makes me so sad that their beautiful fish are living unhappy lives.
Reblogging for learning something new and incredibly needed today.
why are people buying pets to be put in something for fucking decoration anyways?? asshats.
seriously fuck people
kīlauea, one of hawaii’s youngest and most active volcanoes, has been spewing lava continuously for over thirty years, making it the longest rift zone eruption of the last two hundred years.
despite a melted tripod and shoes, toxic gases (which can become lethal should the winds suddenly change), and scolding, acidic ocean steam, miles morgan captured these shots of the volcano’s crater and of the lava which spews from it for a six mile, four hour journey to the sea. (also captured by chance was a meteor seen in the first photo)
said miles, “when you are within about two hundred yards of the ocean’s edge, you are standing on nothing but cooled lava of questionable thickness, called the bench, which is massively unstable. if you happen to be on the bench when it collapses [which happens often, in chunks measured in acres], there is no chance for survival.
