I can’t believe I watched this whole fucking thing what’s wrong with me!? This video does have that trainwreck effect, though. It’s terrible but you can’t look away.
I just don’t get anything about this whole thing!! Why would you get a tapdancer and a fucking choir to a dog’s goddamn birthday party!? I have to admit, it was hilarious how all the dog guests freaked out when the tap dancer came on the stage lmao. Why wouldn’t you do fun things with your dog that the dog actually enjoys, like going for a walk for the whole day and eating nothing but unhealthy delicious foods? Though that dog won’t enjoy any walks, not with that snout, she could barely breathe trough it, even her bark was this really sad little harking-kind of noise and she had to actually be taken away from the party to cool down (it’s really, REALLY not a good idea to dress a bulldog into a fucking dress, especially on a warm weather and then hype her up with a… party of all things wtf oh well) every “ten minutes or so”. Bonus points for the husband giving some sort of reiki-healing good vibes to the dog to “calm her down” but really just holding down a squirming dog who’s bored and overheated oh god this is so painful YOU WILL WATCH IT AND SHARE MY PAIN NOW, INTERNETS!
Some people really should not have this much money just laying around. I swear if I’m ever going to be this rich, every time my dog has a birthday, I will donate to a shelter.
Oh, also whenever someone says “bulldog” I think of this lady. I have never seen her before, but she has lived in my head all my life, this terrible stereotype of a bulldog-owner who is completely raving mad from her overactive maternal instinct. Like an elder God of fucknuttery and out-of-hand good will. I didn’t know she actually existed, but thanks to the internet - now I do!
FYI geographically FInland is indeed part of the scandinavia. Where on earth do people get the idea we are not scandinavian??
Genetically and linguistically we are not “scandinavian” Finland differs from that aspect, indeed. But not geographically.
Is this some sort of an instagram joke? I don’t use that thing and never intend to (is it an app or something?) so I may be behind my times, but I am honestly confused and terribly. terribly bored insomniac at 5:12 in the morning.
I should stop keeping my plistospliota (praying mantis) and G. rosea (tarantula) so close to each other. They keep trying to eat eachother, but only end up knocking their stupid faces on the terrarium glass. Especially the mantis.
Beyond the lies, beneath the deception, the truth will surface.
Magnolia Pictures has debuted the trailer for the chilling Sundance documentary Blackfish, directed Gabriela Cowperthwaite, about orcas in captivity.
OKAY, WE NEED TO REBLOG THE FUCK OUT OF THIS. EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT AN ANIMAL PERSON, YOUR FOLLOWERS NEED TO SEE THIS. ESPECIALLY DURING THE HEIGHT OF VACATION SEASON. DO NOT SUPPORT SEA PARKS WITH CAPTIVE WHALES. IT’S NOT ENVIRONMENTAL PROPAGANDA (I can’t believe I even used those words) IT’S A REAL ISSUE AND IT’S NOT A MATTER OF PROOF, IT’S A MATTER OF COVERING IT UP AND IGNORING IT!
tw warning for animal abuse and implications of graphic violence (human mutilation, etc)
while we’re at it, the cove is a pretty good documentary about this sort of thing as well
Remember Free Willy? It came out 1993, which is 20 years ago. What have we learned since then? Well, SHIT. We learned shhhhhit. The whole movie was a cheesy clump of shit, which anthopomorphised orcas (in wrong ways, we DO have alot of common with this species) and did not actually do any good.
But it did cause us to free the whale who acted Willy, Keiko, that’s good right? Well, Keiko died after being freed and I claim he died exactly because he was freed. Like human children who have been brought up by wolves, who don’t want to leave their “adoptive family”, Keiko did not want to leave us and he alienated other whales. Keiko was also caught couple of times performing to people on docks, and he tried to seek human contact, because well, that’s all he knew about. He followed some whales for a while, people thought he’d get accepted after a while, but he did not. He did not even learn to feed himself, he did not get accepted into other orca groups probably because he didn’t even know how to talk orca, he was taken from his mother from very young age and did not learn to speak properly, and died alone and hungry. And we have not made it illegal to catch new whales or have made whale parks illegal. So new orca babies get kidnapped from their mothers, still. It really bothers me deeply how the life and death of Keiko had absolutely no weight and all this was for nothing.
While it would’ve been best if we didn’t ever kidnap him from his mom, we could’ve AT LEAST given a good life for Keiko and cared for him untill he died of old age. We kidnapped him as a baby, played with him and then threw him away. And it will happen again to many more.
I hope this documentary blows off that nauseating Free Willy sugar coat and gets a massive following. We NEED to at least make this practise illegal. Is seeing circus tricks really more important than the lives of these great beings? What compels us to this sort of evil? I will never understand.
what kind of snakes are those and why choose to house venomous ones instead of nonvenomous ones?
Oh, hi! I didn’t notice this earlier! Sometimes tumblr doesn’t notify me of messages. I think the yellow one might be Bothriechis schlegelii and the other one might be puff adder. They are my friend’s and I do not know much anything about snakes or reptiles, really so I apologise for my really bad taxonomy skills on this part :( But I DO know that they are both SOME sort of vipers, and very venomous, they will fuck you up completely if you get bitten. These guys were really calm and nice, tho and I don’t feel scared about visiting my friends even at feeding days :)
There is not enough money in the world so I would take a puff adder into my house. Or okay, I lied, I would take one for 125,000 euros, but that’s my final offer! I do have venomous tarantulas and centipedes, though. The tarantulas won’t be able to kill anything else than severly allergic babies, but the centipedes might pack more punch. Even with these critters it was a real battle, I had promised to myself that I would never take anything venomous into my house but here I am, with 3 tarantulas and two centipedes, and I want LOADS more. It’s a slippery slope and it was the same for my friends with the snakes :) First they had just some ball pythons and some mildly venomous little friends but they’ve started taking in more and more dangerous creatures. There is just great love for amazing, beautiful creatures with scales or external skeletons, which transcends venomousness haha!
I am planning to get an avicularia some day, so I can practise for my final goal: orange baboon tarantula, Pterinochilus murinus. It’s my dream tarantula, but so aggressive and so venomous.. I have a long way to go.
I really babbled, sorry for that? I just can’t stop once I start talking about how amazing insects/arachnids/nature is :)
EDIT: I asked my friends and my quesses were WAY off lol I suck ass. They were atheris squamigera and the other some sort of latastei (subspecies not known). My friends do have a puff adder, though. I am very impressed about it. They also have a cerastes and Protobothrops cornutus but no Bothriechis schlegelii like I thought.
