Animal fun fact: Chinchillas can’t get wet. Their fur retains too much water and will start to grow mold. So they bathe by rolling around in dust.
Chinchilla fun fact: Chinchillas have around 20 hairs per follicle; unlike humans who have 2-3 hairs per follicle. Because their fur is so dense, they cannot get fleas or other parasites. The bugs will suffocate in their fur.
Chinchilla fun fact: Petting one of those awesome little guys feels like touching a motherfucking cloud.
Chinchilla fun fact: Their newborn babies are like little pieces of fluffy popcorn. You could easily just toss a handful in your mouth.
Chinchilla fun fact: Don’t toss a handful into your mouth.
n. the smallest measurable unit of human connection, typically exchanged between passing strangers—a flirtatious glance, a sympathetic nod, a shared laugh about some odd coincidence—moments that are fleeting and random but still contain powerful emotional nutrients that can alleviate the symptoms of feeling alone.
an Almost perpetual motion machine.
Perpetual motion is motion that continues indefinitely without any external source of energy. meaning a system in perpetual motion will never stop going, so efficiency is 100% or more - meaning either no energy is ever lost in the system or a surplus “free” energy is generated.
this is theoretically impossible as it violates the first law of thermodynamics (that is the law of conservation of energy that states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed). however, the above set up is one of the closest ever gotten to perpetual energy with an efficiency of 80-99%, an internal combustion engine in a car has around 30% for comparison.
at up to 99%, the rolling ball can continue rolling for years on its own, but will at some point stop. only at 100% efficiency is it perpetual which is not theoretically possible.

I NEED THESE MASTER PLEASE
If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)
Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.
SO REBLOG THIS!! LIKE THIS!!! SPREAD IT LIKE WILDFIRE!!!!!
Frankly, I think that there should be a MASSIVE PROHIBITIVE TAX PENALTY on people who won’t vaccinate their kids or themselves for ~~personal~~ non-medical reasons.
And that people who cite ~~but autism~~ should be put on a list that pings the local child protective authorities and identifies them as a potential child abuser if their offspring is ever diagnosed with a spectrum disorder.
Because seriously. These people would rather have a dead child than an autistic one. I do NOT trust them with an autistic child.
All of the above. Also if anti-vaxxers would stop using me and people like me as a fucking scare tactic that would be great. My syndrome is not the end of the fucking world. I am still 100% capable of having a full, healthy, productive life, as are many people on the autism spectrum.
You know who isn’t capable of that kind of life?
Someone dead from small pox or what the shit ever.
Also, vaccinations do not cause autism. JFC. Learn 2 science.
So DiGiorno Pizza tweeted “#WhyIStayed You had pizza.” today. The problem being #WhyIStayed is a hashtag for people to share why they stayed with their domestic abuser.
This is hardly the first time a company has committed a huge social media blunder (remember American Apparel’s “clouds” on the Fourth of July?), but I have to say, DiGiornio is handling it better than any other company I’ve seen. They took the tweet down and have spent all day replying to angry tweets individually.
Even if they had multiple people working on the account to reply (which I’m sure they did), that’s a lot of tweeting. And the message was always variations on the same: we’re sorry, this mistake was preventable, and we screwed up.
That’s powerful. Every company should have a plan in place for if/when they commit an error of this magnitude. And, of course, check WHY a tag is trending before you use it.
It seems like the tweet was only up for about 5 minutes, but they didn’t just delete it and pretend it hadn’t happened, they took responsibility. This is how you apologize.
"Trying to get a baby or a fussy toddler to sit still for a photograph can feel like a herculean task. Luckily, it only takes a second to get the shot. In the nineteenth century, however, it was a different story—particularly when it came to tintype portraits, which required a long exposure.
Photographer Laura Larson’s series, Hidden Mother, presents a survey of nineteenth-century tintype portraits in which the mother of the child was included in the photograph, but obscured.
In some instances, the mother would hold her child, with a cloth or props hiding her from the lens, or she would be painted over by the photographer after the image had been taken. In other examples, the mother is entirely absent from the frame, save for an arm, holding the child in place.
The results are both funny and slightly disturbing. The mother appears as an uncanny presence, Larson writes in a statement. Often, she is swathed in fabric, like a ghost.”
we were so creepy and fucking dumb
Earlier this month, the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation released their annual report, the State of Obesity — and there isn’t much good news: Not only is the country growing more obese every year, there are regional pockets and socioeconomic groups where the problem is exceptionally bad.
According to the report, there isn’t a single U.S. state where the adult obesity rate is below 20%. Twenty states have an obesity rate greater than 30%, and, on average, 34.9% of Americans are obese while 68.5% are either obese or overweight.
