A CROW TRIED TO GO IN OUR CLASSROOM AND HE HAD A PEN
yes hello i am here to learn geometries
That crow is more prepared than some of my students.
You’ve all just like, completely skipped over the possibility that this crow has seen people using pens in this room, found one, and is trying to return it. There’s been videos of crows picking up sweet wrappers and stuff and placing them in bins after seeing humans put their litter in bins. I really do believe that this crow is trying to return the pen and that is ADORABLE AS HELL.
THEY ARE SO SMART I LOVE THEM
Crows are thought to be self aware by some scientists. Its perfectly possible the crow wants to return the pen to humans. Knowing it belongs to humans.
Corvids. Who KNOWS. :)
Another cool crow deal: Once, when trying to assess if crows could reason and use tools, scientists had two crows who didn’t know each other each take a wire from a table (one was hooked, one was straight) and try to grab meat from a bottle with it. The crows could see each other, though they had separate bottles. Only the straight wire worked for this, so they hypothesized that if crows could reason, the second trial would have the two crows fighting over the straight wire. The second trial started and, to the surprise of the scientists, the two crows both went for the bent wire, one held it down and the other unbent it. They both got meat out of their bottles. They came to a peaceful solution without verbal communication. Crows are probably smarter than we are.
Crows are definitely smarter than humans

Done in Sai and photoshop over four hours.
I used a photo called Blues Away as a reference. I am totally thought I got it on DA, but I can’t find the artist, and the name format of the image isn’t DA’s style. Very sad about that. I hate not being able to give credit!
This lamp absorbs 150 times more CO2 than a tree
It’s still in the “so crazy it just might work” stage, but these microalgae-powered lamps, invented by French biochemist Pierre Calleja, could absorb a ton of carbon from the air every year. That’s as much as 150 to 200 trees. [x]
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. This is ingenious.
The design is a light bulb surrounded by a glass casing. The glass is filled with (water based) media and microalgae. The top is permeable to gasses so that gas exchange can occur. All of the wiring is linked to the grid underground.
Since the light source is inside, it gets scattered and “dimmed” by the water and algae. This makes it less glaringly bright and scatters the light wider, which is good for a street light. It is not longer white light as well, which helps make it easier on the eyes while still providing light.
At the same time, it provides the light for photosynthesis in the algae, so they are continuously exchanging CO2 for O2, not just in the day. It also provides a source of heat, which helps keep the algae from going dormant during cold weather (as in the snowy picture above).
And notice how I did not specify permeability - that’s because NOx’s (NO and NO2) are also permeable and can be used as nitrogen sources to microalgae. In fact, algae are relatively low maintenance. As autotrophs, they don’t require super complex media, not does it really need to be changed/added to. (I’m actually fairly certain that there would still be algae in these tanks a year later; it may need to be cleaned or something, but there would be some living algae.)

Yo, while I fully advocate the fact that you’re allowed to do what you want to do and believe what you want to do, this is kind of unnecessary?
There are a lot of ways to make more helpful changes when it comes to the rights of animals, placing stickers which only INCONVENIENCES the workers who are already underpaid because they have to REMOVE them. They don’t get paid enough to do their jobs as it is, and you’re just making it harder. And you know if they can’t remove them the product just gets thrown out because they can’t sell something like that to the public. Basic marketing is to never guilt your customers, y’know???
Plus, I guarantee you, as a red-blooded carnivore, I do not give a fuck what some sticker on a Saintsbury’s bacon packaging is trying to guilt me to do. I want my g-dang bacon bits and I want them now.
There are plenty of organizations, NGOs and civil societies you can join and actually work with to better realize the rights of animals, but making a worker’s job harder and attempting to guilt people through a wee sticker is a laughable attempt at activism.
I love how it’s always BABY ANIMALS
Yeah son everyone knows the best way to make a pork steak is to slaughter 10 baby pigs and mash all that meat together for sure
That aside, if you think any food you eat is innocent, you’re wrong. Unless you’re growing all of your own fruits and veggies and nuts in your own backyard, you’re supporting the abuse of someone or something at some level. We bemoan the chicks and baby ducks and piglets that get slaughtered, but do we ever think about the animals who lose their lives to harvesters or turbines? How about the fact that just planting fields of crops for our veggies takes away another animal’s environment?
If you’re buying imported food (that would be most if not all of your non-regional or seasonal crops), do you know where it came from? What about the conditions in the farms for the human workers? How much were they paid? What sort of hours did they work?
You can feel like a big, smug woman slapping stickers onto meat packages, but you’re doing nothing. You are literally doing the opposite of activism. REAL activism is hard work and takes time. It means having achievable goals and steady methods. ”No one should ever eat meat again because it’s horrible” is not a realistic goal. I could give you a million reasons why (meat is a protein many people rely on, meat is, religiously and culturally, a staple of many diets, meat tastes good), but we’d be here forever.
Instead, I think we should focus on changing the method in which animals are kept, raised, and slaughtered. You might argue that there is no way to humanely slaughter anything, but that’s neither here nor there. Animals are slaughtered, and animals will never stop being slaughtered, and that’s the reality we face. As an omnivore myself, I would gladly pay an extra few dollars for meat knowing the animal was treated well when it was alive and died with dignity. THAT is an achievable goal.
Lastly, shame on you. Honestly. The only people these stickers are going to effect are going to be the workers who have to peel them off, because (and I speak from experience, here) people who buy meat already know where it comes from. You’re not enlightening them or telling them anything they didn’t already know. We’re not five years old. We know how our meat got on our table.
Bottom line: I suspect you get angry when people harass you for being vegan. Show omnivores the same respect, and stop harassing us in return. Respect goes both ways, compadre.
Agreeing with the above statement about how useless the above-pictured “activism” actually is. And to add some fact to the point made above me about no food being “innocent” please refer to this article on the Huffington Post about how the “health food enthusiast”-fuled Quinoa boom is flat-out destroying the economy and environment of Bolivia.
Also, who knows if that sticker can even be removed. If it can’t (or if they break the packaging while trying) then they will end up throwing it away, which is a waste of money and food.
This kind of “activism” really makes me angry. I support your right to get your message out to people, but please stop making it hard on innocent shop employees, and damaging products.
To the awesome commentary above, I can only add “mmm, baby animals.”

oh my god the one with bill nye though
one thing is not believing in global warming and another thing is believing its even remotely related to fucking volcanoes
Quite literally the only time you’ll ever find volcanoes related to global warming is if the planet is completely frozen over in a snowball ice age or if entire continents completely covered in volcanoes were erupting at once.
The second one. He has the most sarcastic and annoyed tone of voice. Omg. “I just HAPPEN to be a Muslim. I am a religious ACADEMIC I have always been interested in Christianity,” SHUT HER DOWNNNNNN.
The first one would have embarrassed me so much I’d retire immediately after the interview.
