So my sister gave me a flash drive. Some of these files are from 100 years in the future. They claim to be multiple gigs in size, despite this being 1gb drive. There are multiple folders of this. They are all labelled as “harry potter and the deathly hallows disk (#)”.
Do i own a cursed flash drive
"I’m not vaccinating my kids because they’ll build up immunity naturally anyway"
"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE BC THERES DEER IN THE DISTANCE LIKE AYE FUCK MAN SOMETHIN GOIN DOWN
A compilation of puppies first bath photos… how scary it is, isn’t it little puppies!
Do you ever memorize a person’s voice? Like you can construct a sentence in your mind that that person’s never said, and yet you hear them say it.
Is that a thing people can do?????????
It was a dirty job, but Bjarni Mikkelsen, a marine biologist at the National Museum of the Faroe Islands, had to do it.
After two whales died this week near the Faroe Islands, the government wanted to use one of the skeletons in the National Museum. So Mikkelsen began the first step of cutting the animal’s gut open. But little did he expect that it would explode in his face.
“The animal was more than two days old when we took it so we knew there would be some pressure on the inside, but nothing like what happened,” he told the Daily Mail.
I’m ambivalent about this.
On the one hand: “Haha!”
On the other: “Oh dear God no”
My friends and I had a long dinner conversation trying to decide what job title you needed to explode dead whales that wash up on the beach.
little did we know they explode all on their own.
Back when whale oil was a big thing one of the hazards of working int hat industry was whale corpses exploding on you.
One person wrote of how dangerous it was when the gasses built up and a female that was pregnant could explode, launching a fetus the size of a car at you.
It would make for a pretty badass obituary though.
"Killed when hit by an exploding whale’s unborn calf travelling at 100 mph."
best magical girl

switzerland is my favorite part of europe youve got this bullshit triple entente shit to your left and the entire goddamn triple alliance to your right and youre sitting there just outside the battlefield switzerland does not have time for your world war 1 crap switzerland is strong
They avoided getting involved with their natural mountain defenses and the fact that, well
A HUGE PORTION of their populous had rifle training with the possible estimate of every household in the country owning a rifle, meaning that despite its relatively small official army, every citizen had the ability to defend themselves and the training to do it with.
When the Kaiser of Germany in World War I, during a demonstration of military maneuvers, asked a guest of the Swiss government what their 500,000 strong Swiss army could do against a 1,000,000 man Germany army
The guest promptly replied
"Shoot twice and go home"
To demonstrate how fucking crazy awesome Switzerland is, they also apparently have 300,000 detonation points across the country so that in the case that they do get invaded they can cripple infrastructure to prevent their enemies from using it.
i fear switzerland
