In The Not So Distant Future, Glow-In-The-Dark Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Is that… is that even healthy?

There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.

I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.

nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.

In which case

GLOWY

FORESTS

GLOWY

TREES

GLOWY

EVERYTHING

(I like glowy things)

People with anxiety:

  • Know the worry is irrational
  • Want to calm down but can’t
  • Hate the fact that breathing feels like you are trying to breathe rocks instead of air
  • Feel like they are drowning and suffocating.  Telling them to just take a breath and calm down doesnt help.
  • Want to stop shaking but can’t control their limbs.
  • Just plain feel horrible and embarrassed.

Now I kinda understand anxiety from my friends a little

If you think this isn’t the damn truth you should know that a few years back, my campus newspaper ran an article that said fat women should be grateful for rape because it’s the only way they’ll ever feel worthy of a man’s attention.

I shit you not.

yeah, I’ve been told on multiple occasions during casual conversations that I’m not pretty/skinny enough to be raped, so that’s a thing

this disgusts the core of my being.

A guy once said to me, “You’re not hot enough to be raped.” and he was being completely serious.

I’ve said I’m not pretty enough to worry about being raped.

Your first time is NOT supposed to hurt

You are NOT supposed to bleed

If you bleed, that is NOT your hymen being ‘popped’, it is a tear due to lack of sexual arousal and natural lubrication.

This is all a MYTH perpetrated by men so they don’t have to make sure you are comfortable and sufficiently aroused enough before you have sex with them. It is an excuse to disregard and hurt you.

I just really want women to know this.

wait…. really?

yes really

My local humane society posts pictures of new adoptions. This one makes me so happy.

i love this photo so much

I’m sorry but no. Fuck all of you who like this. This man is going to die before the cat does and when that happens, the cat will more than likely go back to a shelter. This guy is a shitty person for adopting an animal that he know will outlive him. I know y’all wanna think it’s cute that this old guy has a kitten but no. It’s not cute. It’s reckless and irresponsible.

* assumes he’s old enough to have death that close

* assuming he doesn’t have a spouse that would outlive him.

* assumes he won’t care enough to make sure family or friends will look after the cat if he dies.

* assumes the cat would be adopted by someone else ‘more deserving’ and not left in a shelter or euthanized.

Anyone adopting an animal could get hit by a city bus tomorrow and die. You’re the asshole for saying he doesn’t deserve a pet (which could greatly improve the quality of his life potentially) because you think he won’t be considerate enough to make plans for it if he were to die.

I’m so angry about the cruel, ageist, vicious and presumptuous comment here. How dare anyone accuse an elderly person of being “shitty” for adopting a pet. You speak about the elderly as if they aren’t even people. 

I sincerely wish all the best for this sweet man and his new kitty.

I HOPE THIS MAN AND HIS KITTEN FUCKING OUTLIVE THAT SHIT TALKING TIT
