Not a single woman is on the list for best hero, and I find that ridiculous and wrong. If no one else, Katniss Everdeen should be added to represent the population of powerful women that our generation has become. Don’t let a strong hero like Katniss be beat out by Bilbo Baggins and a Channing Tatum character most people didn’t see. Please sign my petition.

I’ve actually read a lot of Sapolsky’s work. He’s one of my favorite scientists in the neuro/socio world.
I just watched the documentary and there is so much more about the troop that isn’t in this photoset—not only does the troop have a culture of little aggression and greater cooperation, but any incoming jerk baboons learned within a few months that their shitty behaviour was in no way acceptable, that the troop only rewarded sociability, and they changed accordingly.
If effin’ baboons can learn this there’s pretty much no reason to believe that our only option in dealing with assholes is to just ignore their behaviour and let it continue.
there really is no excuse.
Not down with suggesting mass killing of any group of people, even as a joke. But otherwise, this.
Hi everyone! This is very important!! Recently, two beautiful dogs, Lola & Rumba, passed away from accidentally swallowing the strings from a regular, Petsmart rope toy!! The owner, instagram user @fg_lola , posted this on instagram. “…We want to share the cause of their passing so it doesn’t happen to your babies. Lola and Rumba chewed their toy and swallowed threads, clogging their intestines. Lola choked and passed out before we could even make it to the vet. Our world came crashing as this nightmare begins to unravel. We could not believe that our princess was no longer alive. Then, we noticed Rumba was not eating. Everything seemed fine, but something in my heart said that she too had swallowed the same threads as Lola. After 2 vets, one recommended exploratory surgery. At first we thought her surgery was a success. The vet said it was a very complicated surgery because her intestines were scrunched up like an accordion and were severely bruised. They kept her in the hospital for 5 days and she still wasn’t eating. We visited her every morning and evening while she was there. The vet called us and mentioned us taking her home to see if she would eat in her comfort zone. It breaks my heart to tell you that she didn’t make it through the night. Losing both of our girls has been such a traumatic and painful time in our lives. My heart is broken into a million pieces and our home feels empty without them…” The toy that they gave their dogs was a regular rope toy!!! If you have any of these dog toys in your house DISPOSE OF THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Please reblog this to get the word out! #NoRopeToys
This is so awful! Signal boosting. Remember to always, always supervise your dogs and never, ever leave them alone with a toy if you’re not 1000% sure how they will behave with it.
