THANK YOU The story of Balto is interesting. He led a team of sled dogs across the Alaskan wilderness in the dead of winter with diphtheria antitoxins to stop an outbreak in Nenana Alaska. Diphtheria is a deadly infectious disease that could wipe out a third of a town’s population. It is mostly unknown to the public today because of vaccines. Balto’s body is preserved in the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. He’s a big hero of mine! Let’s not forget Togo! Who, at 12 years old during the serum run, lead his team 200 miles through much more dangerous conditions during the first leg of the journey before Balto ran the last 55-mile stretch. Togo and Balto didn’t bust their asses for dying children for you to turn around and not vaccinate your damn kids Damn straight : janespetticoat: space-buns: pugbytes: your-naked-magic-oh-dear-lord: grandpanerd-world: your-naked-magic-oh-dear-lord: omghotmemes: Show some respect, people.

4 JAN: A cleaner dusts a cast of a dinosaur skeleton at the Natural History Museum in London on 12 November 1936. The cast was made from the D Carnegiei diplodocus at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, and was presented to the London museum in 1905. A museum's famous 112-year-old dinosaur is set to leave London for a national tour. Dippy the diplodocus, a 70ft long (21.3m) plaster-cast sauropod replica made up of 292 bones, is set to leave the Natural History Museum in Kensington later this year. A six-person team will start a three-and-a-half week task of dismantling of Dippy on Thursday. He is being moved as the museum is having a front-of-house makeover. Dippy's spot is being taken by the skeleton of an 83ft (25.2m) female blue whale, weighing 4.5 tonnes. She will take up position in a diving pose as she is suspended from the ceiling of the hall.
