Apple, Beard, and Beautiful: 62,681 do all Americans have pet eagles? Yes I remember my first eagle ceremony when I turned nine. The first eagle you get is always declawed, which I always thought was pretty inhumane, but it was a good way to ease into caring for the birds. My eagle (named Baldy, because I wasnt a terribly clever child) was already quite old when I received him (he was a rescue eagle, luckily) but I did have him until I was 16. I don't know if I was more excited about getting my drivers license that year or my new eagle! You should have seen the party we had when I got him, too! Grilled hot dogs and fire works and lemonade... obviously I named my beautiful new eagle Freedom. He's too big to keep inside anymore, unfortunatey but we've got a pretty comfortable roost for him on our apartment's balcony Ah, yes, the eagle ceremony! My Justice and I remember his quite well. (They had just come out with telepathic link transplants when I got him, which is how I know he remembers it.) Our celebration was quite modest, compared to Freedom's-apple pie under a cloudless summer sky as we signed our Declaration of Interdependence. I still have the inked and talon-plerced document hanging on my wall. what is this Get out Canada I was so scared during my pet eagle ceremony I almost threw up. But Stonewall Jackson and I have been best friends ever since. My dad and grandfather built a really massive roost behind the house for my eagle and my sisters' eagles. Stonewall always waits for me when I get home from class since schools are getting so over protective and strict these days and won't allow eagles indoors. Which just goes to show how much we're bubble wrapping kids today. Back in the day, if you couldn't handle a few stitches because you pissed off the wrong kid's eagle you had to just man up and learn your lesson! Ooo, I never miss a chance to tell this story! I had a rather unusual first eagle ceremony. The traditional giant American flag that you wave around to summon your eagle had been severely damaged the week prior (a ceremony that had not gone according to plan, but the child only suffered minor talon wounds. The flag took the brunt of the attack). Anyway, I couldn't use the normal flag so we had to search ALL OVER for one suitable for eagle summoning. Unfortunately the stripes weren't the correct shade of patriotic red so everyone was worried an eagle wouldn't show up at all. I had to stand in the middle of that wheat field, the wind creating amber waves out of it, shaking that flag in the air for over three hours. Everyone was just about to give up when suddenly Patriot appeared out of nowhere! He came to me so quickly it was like he was apologizing for being late. And we've been together ever since. Some people think it's excessive to have two eagles. But what can I say, I'm a two eagles kind of guy. Well, I can say, "You must be a terrorist to call me out over my excesses," but I digress. We don't have many open fields around here, so I got Liberty by waving my flag atop a decommissioned WWll aircraft carrier. I was kicking a couple of boxes of tea into the harbor for good measure, and there she was. I loved her so much I repeated the process a year later and got young Colbert here. It's hard work, raising two eagles, but I have two shoulders, after all. Besides, I know that the secret to happy and healthy eagles is plenty of Bud Light. Oh man, the eagle ceremony. I was a weird fucking kid, okay, so l was totally sure that the eagle ceremony wasn't just going to net me my eagle and deepen the mystical bond between a citizen and their country, I thought I was going to get to turn into an eagle too. So me and my mom and my dad and my little brother are all standing in the old civil war battleground, surrounded by the ghosts of our fallen soldiers, and all and the problem here- it's not usually a problem because I make sure to shave my beard off twice a day, three times on sundays- was that I am, actually, born on the fourth of July. So it wasn't just one eagle that showed up, it was pretty much every big old patriotic warbird in Missouri, all flapping around confused and pissed off, their innate senses of direction completely fucked up by the way firecracker babies warp America's natural system of ley lines. And I was six, so grabbed the flag and ran with it over my shoulders, rippling in the wind, thinking it was going to turn into wings for me and I would go be an eagle with all the other eagles. Instead I just got mobbed by a freaked-out mess of nationalistic avians who all weighed more than I did. I lost half my nose and my whole left arm and spent most of fourth grade in reconstructive surgery getting machine guns welded on to the shattered remains of my ulna. Completely missed my little brother's eagle ceremony, which I wil always regret, but it was all worth it to have met Columbia. I never did turn into an eagle on the outside, but I like to think those long hours in the hospital, feeding her rubbing alcohol and my own blood, have made me an eagle in my heart. you should probably go to TheMetaPicture.com srsfunny: Do All Americans Really Have Pet Eagles?

No, but that didn’t stop us from violating them in the attempt”</p> </blockquote> <p>Wasnt there a couple who raised a boy as a girl cause of a botched circumcision, and he ended up killing himself? This is a shitty idea and no one can convince me otherwise.</p> </blockquote> <p>its the psychological equivalent. It’s a nonviolent cult idea, but a cult idea none the less</p></blockquote> <p>There’s a difference between raising “theybies” And raising kids without gender roles. Like I was raised very much without concern for gender roles. I wore boys clothing a lot of times to go play. My best friend was a dude and he played Ken in barbies but we would also play dinosaurs together. I got down and dirty and caught snakes and raccoons. Originally I was enrolled in dance classes, but at 6 I said I hated it and waned to do sports instead, so my parents enrolled me in soccer. When we went to mcdonalds and I got a happy meal, my mom would always ask “do you want a girl toy or a boy toy?” I turned out fine. That was a very good way to raise a kid because it never forced me to like this thing over that. It let me find my own interests and enjoy them without being shamed or told “thats not for you.” </p><p>However raising “theybies” is going to be reinforcing the harmful “thats not for you” because of the forceful aversion to anything even remotely representative of gender. Instead of allowing the kid to explore interests across a broad range, it’ll be about forcing the parents ideas of gender on to the child without letting the child explore their own personality, interests, etc. </p></blockquote> <p>Exactly. Like I’m not saying you can’t have kids with interests outside of their traditional gender roles. I dare say that’s entirely normal for many children. But there’s a big difference between that and this.</p>

Party, Run, and Singing: Simone Policano 28 Mar at 01:26 A note on consent I filmed a scene today with a young child actor who had to quickly peck me on the lips as I tucked him into bed. The moment in the film is supposed to be somewhat uncomfortable, unexpected. I've gotten to know him over the past five days of shooting - he is a remarkable, kind and intuitive kid. He often appears much younger than his 12 years of age, waving his flashlight under a blanket and singing DISSSSC000 PARTYYYYY!!, but now and again an old-soul quality of his blinks up at me through messy light brown hair. He had read the script so he knew the kiss was coming, yet when the production team walked through it for blocking we'd gloss over the moment, nervous about making him uncomfortable. He's young and doesn't know me all that well and it's a lot to ask of a kid who met you five days ago. But eventually we had to run it, because that's what you have to do. And so when the director said we were going to do it for real, our young actor pulled me in for a sec and whispered "Hey Simone, I want to make sure you're okay with everything that happens with the kiss. Do you feel okay? Please tell me if l'm ever doing too much or if I hurt you or make you feel scared." This took many times longer to say than the kiss would take to film. True to his word, after every take of a .3 second peck, he grabbed my hand and whispered Was that okay? Did you feel okay?" And then we'd high- five and he'd burrow back under the covers to resume his flashlight disco party until the next take. Hes 12. Don't let anyone ever tell you that the male inability to understand consent is innate.

It’s in their nature” when in my experience the only people saying stuff like that are feminists. Like the only people I know who interpret “boys will be boys“ as “boys will be rapists“ are feminists.</p>

Being Alone, Comfortable, and Energy: MILLIONAIRE MENTOR MAKE THINGS HAPPEN TODAY Would you like to know how to make things HAPPEN in your life? Read on! 👇👀 - Too many people spend their lives counting down the days until the weekend so they can forget about their temporary reprieve. Then it’s right back on the hamster wheel. Some live their lives in comfortable ignorance, unaware of their true potential. They have it good; you can’t agonize over anything you don’t value. But then there are those who know better, that feel like life is passing them by because they have so much to offer. Plagued by the fact that all of their creative energy is going to waste, they are tortured souls. If this is you, I have good news: You can change that. 😉 - ✔️Consume less. Produce more. Assuming one has a full-time job, nearly half of the hours in their week go towards working and sleeping. The problem for most people is they’ve conditioned themselves to come home each day and consume. Going out to the bar, watching television, spending hours on social media, all of these are means of consuming and can be detrimental to your productivity. If you want to start making things happen in your life… if you desire to get off the hamster wheel, then something has to change. And you know what it is! ✔️Don’t be afraid to start your own path. One of the biggest hang-ups for creative people is their innate desire to rally the troops. I struggled with this for years. “I need to get my friends on board with my vision first,” I told myself. “Then I’ll start making things happen.” But that’s the wrong mindset. You can’t rely on people to get behind your vision before you take action. You have to lead first. 🤔 👉READ THIS CAREFULLY: There’s nothing wrong with enjoying yourself, but keep your end goal in mind. Is what you’re doing today going to get you to where you want to be tomorrow? If not, it’s time to make a change. Remember too, that sometimes being a creator means blazing your own trail. If you have an idea, go after it. There’s no time to wait for others to follow you. What do you think? Are you guilty of consuming too much and producing too little?

Asian, Bad, and Facts: Japanese honeybees kill hornets by enclosinig them in a ball of bees, and then shaking so fast and generating so much heat that they cook the hornet at 115°F Photo courtesy of Takahashi/wikipedia @factsweird <p><a href="http://therothwoman.tumblr.com/post/165708334341/mindblowingfactz-european-honeybees-have-no" class="tumblr_blog">therothwoman</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://weird-facts.org/post/165693362252/european-honeybees-have-no-innate-defense-against" class="tumblr_blog">mindblowingfactz</a>:</p><blockquote><p>European honeybees have no innate defense against the hornets, which can rapidly destroy their colonies. Although a handful of Asian giant hornets can easily defeat the uncoordinated defenses of a honeybee colony, the Japanese honeybee has an effective strategy. When a hornet scout locates and approaches a Japanese honeybee hive, she emits specific pheromonal hunting signals. When the Japanese honeybees detect these pheromones, a hundred or so gather near the entrance of the nest and set up a trap, keeping the entrance open. This permits the hornet to enter the hive. As the hornet enters, a mob of hundreds of bees surrounds it in a ball, completely covering it and preventing it from reacting effectively. The bees violently vibrate their flight muscles in much the same way as they do to heat the hive in cold conditions. This raises the temperature in the ball to the critical temperature of 46 °C (115 °F). In addition, the exertions of the honeybees raise the level of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the ball. At that concentration of CO2, they can tolerate up to 50 °C (122 °F), but the hornet cannot survive the combination of high a temperature and high carbon dioxide level. Some bees do die along with the intruder, much as happens when they attack other intruders with their stings, but by killing the hornet scout, they prevent it from summoning reinforcements that would wipe out the entire colony.</p></blockquote> <p>Bad and Naughty Hornets will be cooked in the <b><i>Ḅ̖͔͓̤̜̘̀͂ͮ͌͊̂ ͓̥̥̒ͭ̔̒Ẹ͎͎̫̠̞ͩ͒ ̲̥̦̲͒̏Ë̘́̏̾ͮ̒ ͉̬̦̹̳̜͈̋͗̀̇̍̌ ̱͕̱̤̣̟̓̽ͧ ̗̗̲ͮ͒ͧ͂̇ ̯̔͊͑͆̈Ŏ͔̝̔͌͒̓ ̞͈̩V̪͕̲̳̥̖ͩ ̙̺̲̫ͥ̔̽̏̓ͨͬȄ̹͈̦ ̼͓̻͉̫̖́̄̑͌ͣͤ̄N̜̝̖̠̬ͨͮ̾</i></b><br/></p></blockquote>

Bad, Confederate Flag, and Facebook: Keegan Stephan @KeeganNYC The left just calls anyone who disagrees with them a nazi." odinsblog: Yes, these are real life Nazis, and NO, we aren’t going to defeat them with “love and tolerance” OTHER LIES you will be hearing from Nazi sympathizers: 1. you should respect a Nazi’s freedom of speech (NO—nobody owes respect to racists or Nazis and hate speech that incites violence is not protected under the 1st Amendment) 2. you’re no better or “the same” as them for fighting back (WRONG—this false equivalence would make the side who believes in genocide and enslavement “just as bad” as the side trying not to be the victims of genocide and enslavement) 3. hate breeds hate (NO—injustice, oppression, racism and generations of systematic discrimination is what breeds hate) 4. “both sides” are at fault (WRONG—this is another false equivalency that treats the aggressor, James Alex Fields, as innocently as the victim, Heather Heyer) 5. “Burning the Confederate flag or destroying Confederate monuments are acts of violence, just as bad as violence against people” (NO—that’s asinine and you’re an idiot if you believe that false equivalence, property ≠ people) 6. it’s just a “difference of opinions” and everyone has a right to their opinions (NO—dehumanization, anti-Blackness, antisemitism, Islamophobia, ablism and trans/homophobia are not harmless opinions; they are tools for systems of oppression, and NO, you do not have to blindly give respect to Nazis who are seeking to destroy others for being their innate selves) Many of these are obviously false equivalencies, but what they all have in common is they essentially tell you not to resist, and eternally turn the other cheek and “love” the people attacking or oppressing you It’s like this: Nazis support genocide. They actively support racism and racial discrimination. They literally believe in a “master race”. Their end goal is to either destroy or subjugate all non-white people. Nazis and white supremacists are a cancer to humanity. If you discovered that you had cancer, you wouldn’t try to love or tolerate it or anything else—you would immediately begin doing everything in your power to eradicate it. There is no such thing as having an acceptable amount of cancer. Nazis and white supremacists need to be treated like the cancer they are And please pay close attention to anyone who uses vague “both sides” language to avoid assigning blame to anyone, or worse, ask you to “try to understand” the Nazis’ side, as if the only two sides aren’t right vs. the side the Nazis are on: evil

Ass, Bad, and Fuck You: oooo AT&T 74% 4:19 PM a boasian anthropology MAPS ALL NEWS IMAGES VID SHOPPING "Boasian Anthropology is a pseudo- scientific Jewish assault on White European racial consciousness and identity. To put it simply, the Jewish Boasian school of Anthropology suggested wrongly, that 'race was a social construct' not rooted in biology or scientific determinism." Apr 1, 2015 Judeo-Boasian Anthropology is Subversive and Psychological... https://smashculturalmarxism.wordpress.com About this result Feedback People also search for dyinghistoric: kylorcns: kyidyl: archaeologistproblems: post-gradlifethrugifs: Anthropologists and decent humans alike! Please help report this. This is the first thing that comes up on google and it’s unacceptable! Archaeologist problems: When some lame Wordpress page insults Franz Boas with racist bullshit. (For my followers not in the know: Franz Boas is basically the progenitor of North American schools of anthropology. He determined correctly that race is a social construct wherein we have created separate categories for physical and cultural traits that actually exist on a spectrum with no true biological boundaries.) I provided feedback to google that this is the wrong answer, and I encourage my followers to run this search and do the same thing. Let’s not forget that Boas:: Was a German-American Jewish immigrant who hated Nazis.  Like.  HATED Nazis and Hitler.  And when everyone else was making noises about how Hitler wasn’t so bad, he’d calm down, etc. - Boas was publishing article after article about what a monster Hitler was and how he should be removed immediately.   At the time Boas was beginning his career, Anthropologists had been incorrectly using skull measurements to determine who was what race and then participate in the associated racism that is innate to the Great Chain of Being (<– idea that society is a progression from grass hut to modern western society.  Has been debunked over and over, but it’s pervasiveness still shows in many still popular cultural ideas.).  Boas was so ticked off by both the racism and the lack of scientific integrity inherent in the skull measuring that his ass traipsed all over and measured *thousands* of skulls - the largest study ever of the subject - and not only debunked the correlation between race and skull measurements, but proved that skull sizes could be influenced by environment and weren’t even genetically dictated.  He was like “me and my 12,000 skulls say fuck you and the racist horse you rode in on.”   Debunked the Great Chain of Being - or the idea that culture is a strict progression.   He was involved with the early NAACP - his writings can be found in their early publications.   His influence on social perceptions of race helped end the Jim Crow laws.   Really hated the lack of scientific integrity in anthropology at the time, hence his role in the founding of the current 4-field approach of American anthropology (Cultural anthro, physical anthro, archaeology, and linguistics.).  He was extremely prolific and had a lot of great connections so he had lots of influence.  He not only approved of women having a place in academia, he mentored several, including one of the most famous anthropologists: Margaret Mead.   And, yeah, he correctly determined that race is a social construct based on phenotypical characteristics not a biological reality.   He had a PhD in physics before coming to anthropology and a diverse scientific background, so he had wide and varied interests.  He seems like he was a pretty cool guy.   Also notice how the source for the bullshit has an incredibly antisemitic dog whistle term as its URL. Okay as an anthropologist this makes me sick Boas is rad and someone needs to get this changed Who can I call someone tell me

Animals, Food, and Fucking: Isabel Wayrick Fichure byPaut Ceman huntersonthewing: askfordoodles: littlemissbloo: whitmerule: pardonmewhileipanic: red3blog: pardonmewhileipanic: notcuddles: nesft: #CROW NO Crow: CROW YES! It’s actually impossible to measure how many fucks a corvid give because there is no device sensitive enough to register such a tiny amount. science/animal side of tumblr… explain to me the birb thing Tail Pulling is a behavior noted in many corvids. The practical application is to create a distraction that will allow the birb to make off with the target’s food. Imagine being in the lunch room and a large fellow has a Twinkie you covet. You can’t just take it from him because he’ll defend his Twinkie. But if you thwap him on the back of his neck and then dash around to snag the Twinkie while he investigates, you stand a decent chance of enjoying spongey goodness. This is basically that in birb form. Except corvids don’t only do this as a distraction. Sometimes they seem to just being doing it to mess with other animals/birbs. But to use my lunch room analogy, there are times you might thwap someone sneakily on the back of the neck just for amusement. Primates exhibit behavior that appears to be just be annoying other animals for amusement. Given how intelligent crows are, its not unlikely that this is a manifestation of an innate desire to just fuck with someone else for the fun of it. Such as this from the link above: THANK YOU FOR THE BIRB KNOWLEDGE BECAUSE IT IS FUN This speaks to me on a molecular level. birbs just wanna have fun Sorry to hijack a little, but to put it bluntly, corvids are also pretty BALSY. They are more than prepared to harass other huge birds of prey which could deal them a lot of damage. There’s plenty of cases of corvids ‘riding’ other birds as well. It’s often to harass the larger bird out of the area, but as @red3blog said, they quite often (in layman’s terms) enjoy fucking shit up for fun. ‘Where the hell is the seatbelt on this thing?’ I mean they deserve a medal for having such huge bird balls imo Literally no fucks are given by corvids. Ever.
