It’s alive! Buried deep in the Siberian permafrost scientists found a ‘giant virus’ that has been asleep for 30,000 years. Named Pithovirus sibericum, it contains 500 genes and was revived in the lab. The researchers are now trying to assess if ancient viruses such as this one could pose a threat for humans. via Science Alert/fb
Let’s hope this wasn’t the stupidest thing we’ve ever done.
there are about 16046540210 movies that explain exactly why this could be the stupidest thing we’ve ever done
Labelling the animal products in the corpse aisles. Stickers by Evolve Campaigns. You can get them sent to you or download and print off yourself for free. See here for info: www.tiny.cc/bgvj9w
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.
Rae: “I just can’t eat in front of people.”
Stacey: “Why not?”
Rae: “Well, because, if I eat unhealthy food, then people will think ‘Oh, look at that fat cow. No wonder she got to that size,’ and if I eat healthy food, then they think ‘Well, who’re you trying to kid, love? You didn’t get to that size by eating salads.’”The fat experience in a nutshell. Bloody hell, My Mad Fat Diary is brilliant.
Well fuck, nobody’s forcing you to be fat.
^^^I hope you know that comments like this is the cause of millions of girls (and boys) feeling insecure about their bodies. It is also the cause of many many people having eating disorders/self harm/suicidal thoughts and tendencies. People don’t just choose to be overweight like wow I’m gonna wake up and be fat today because I just soooo badly want people to make fun of me all the time. Being overweight isn’t something anyone should be ashamed of. We are all different and we are all beautiful. So please think about what you are saying and how it could affect someone before you say something like that again.
