HOW IS THIS NOT EVERYWHERE?
Reblogging this good news…again.
y’all know EXACTLY why this isn’t everywhere. don’t pretend to be oblivious
Well let’s spread the word then guys. This kid deserves all the attention.
"Ramarni, what will you do when you grow up?"
So excited when I hear stories like this because imagine what he will accomplish

The Turkish company Pugedon has recently introduced a vending machine that’s an innovative way to help both the environment and our furry friends. It releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well.
This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food. So, with a little financial investment, the simple machines do a lot of good. They provide a steady source of sustenance to the animals, many of which rely on caring residents to regularly feed them. It also encourages people to make a habit of recycling and help conserve our environment for future generations.
Put these everywhere
So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!”
Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run. Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph. The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp.
On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture. I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive. But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency. Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up.
Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case. *Edit* This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police. Please advise, it is highly disturbing.
And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.
On February 21st, 2013, Ryo Oyamada was struck and killed by a police cruiser while crossing the street. NYPD claimed that the cruiser’s lights and sirens were on before the collision, but multiple eyewitnesses stated otherwise, that the lights and sirens were only turned on afterwards, and that the cruiser was speeding in excess of 70 mph down a residential street. None of these eyewitnesses were interviewed for the police report.
Trans Guys | Bind Kinder
The use of ace bandages for binding is not only extremely uncomfortable, its dangerous.
Ace bandages contract around the ribcage, not allowing your ribcage to expand as you breathe, furthermore, putting you at risk for deformed ribs from prolonged use, as well as broken rib bones.
Always use a binder, which is specifically designed for binding and shaping the chest.
Can’t afford a binder? contact Aydian Dowling at email@example.com and get a binder for nothing more than the cost of shipping.
for my brothers in need
Things I wish I’d known in high school. Guys seriously the ace bandages can do some serious damage, don’t do it. Huge thanks to whoever is at that email taking care of folks so kindly.
Boosting for this wonderful person’s email.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE spread this information and STOP DRAWING FANART/CREATING MEDIA THAT PORTRAYS USE OF ACE BANDAGES because not all trans people know this and will attempt to bind in dangerous ways if not given alternative methods!!
Please please please please please! Use binders, friends! I once tried to use Ace bandages to bind just for a cosplay and I couldn’t breathe after wearing them for only a few minutes. Get yourself a binder. I want you guys to be safe!!

"By the way, you can’t actually pick yourself up by your own bootstraps. That’s now how physics works."
this gives me life….
"Act your fucking age" god damn, this has a good message here.
39 seconds in and I reblogged it
Ahhhhh! So good so freakishly amazingly good.

i hate that when i tell people i love spiders they start telling me about the times when they’ve killed a spider or spiders and it’s like why are you telling me this you’re basically admitting to drowning a bag of kittens to me, that is the…
it was in his boot it fucking bit him because it was trapped jesus christ
It’s a fucking spider it can climb on pretty much anything especially a material like fake leather cowboy boots.
Your defending a fucking spider
Like it was somehow my step dad’s fault he got bit.
yeah i’m defending a spider
I really would like to say it was no one’s fault but honestly you really should shake your boots out before you put them on. They’re warm and they seem safe, bugs like to hide in them.
Comparing Spiders to a bag of kittens is like comparing a Syringe filled with Acid to a Nerf Football
Completely different categories
Exactly, I’ve been injured by kitten’s biting and scratching WAY more than I have been injured from spider bites.
Yeah but the kitten scratches didn’t have the side effect of GETTING POISON AND PUSS EXTRACTED FROM YOUR KNEE WHILE SCREAMING FROM THE PAIN!
My dad nearly lost his arm to a cat.
I’ve been bitten by dozens of spiders and recently I sat on a scorpion (who luckily survived)
I’m still perfectly fine.
It’s super uncool to try and demonize innocent animals like this.
1. How did he almost lose an arm to a cat?
2. Kinda hard to demonize Spiders when they already look like they came from the bowels of hell. And the only reason they aren’t in hell is because Satan think Spiders are too evil.
1: we took our cat to the vet, it latched to his arm, lacerating it extremely and he got a really bad infection in it.
2: That’s extremely immature, dude. Don’t you know not to judge thing by outward appearance?
Like damn, dogs kill more people than spiders every year but they’re still lovable.
You really should try and not diss things just because you don’t find them cute. That’s a really dickish way to live.
There are dogs that kill people
Dogs that go rabid
Or dogs that NEARLY kill someone
And then those dogs are put down for the safety of others
So by that logic
We were in the right to kill that spider.
Also throughout my entire thing I was focusing more on the actions of spiders not just their appearances
And the “don’t judge by looks” is for HUMANS.
By that logic
Why don’t you go give a Rattlesnake or a King Cobra a hug the next time you see one
Oh sure it LOOKS incredibly dangerous. But you can’t judge a book by its cover
Oh look the rattlesnake likes you.
Rattlesnakes are actually pretty chill if you don’t step on them.
Same with spiders, scorpions and well
By your logic we should kill all dogs because some dogs kill people.
There are so many species of spiders that are so far from being capable of causing harm, it’s absurd to demonize all of them no matter WHAT.
Honestly, your best bet for nature is to just let it be and don’t go harassing it.
Give it it’s space, and understand that if its not giving you your space it probably doesn’t realize it’s IN your space.
So honestly dude, just chill.
Quite this absurd witch hunt, try and empathize with other living creatures, and apologize to the person you’re bad mouthing for having compassion for animals.
Solar energy that doesn’t block the view
A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
As a current homeowner- GIVE ME THESE THINGS PLEASE.
