Animals, Bad, and Energy: zpo 96u noorsuekdeeysiddeymmm ut IOT-NHD KTV 8 No sheep were sheared to make this yarn, so rest all warm and snuggly in their own wooly jumpers tonight. spectralarchers: thegreenwolf: lipsredasroses: beachgirlnikita: glyndarling: witchella: laylibear: bettagal: sabelmouse: This fake yarn is supposedly better for sheep. Aimed at people who don’t know where wool comes from, it’s 100% plastic. Yes, plastic. So any garment you wash will release microfibres into the sea. It’ll never decompose. You’re supposed to believe that sheep shearing is violent and cruel. There are imbeciles out there that work in an unprofessional manner while shearing, but that’s not the case overall. Sheep don’t suffer from having their fleece removed. Left on, the fleece can become a home for fly eggs and the subsequent maggots which can eat the sheep. Chemical treatments are available to prevent that happening. It’s much better for the sheep, the land and the farmer to avoid chemical use. Don’t be fooled. Wool is a sustainable material, one we should make more and better use of. Miscrofibers hurt our fish friends. 😓 Hey kiddos as someone who grew up in the sheep capitol of the world, shearing sheep isn’t a bad thing and can be helpful for our fluffy friends!! Please be concious of your decisions!!! Also plastic yarn is cheap and difficult to work with. Please remember to peel your sheeps. Some sheep can be peeled! The process is called rooing. Domestic sheep do not shed their wool. They need to be sheered. If left unsheered, the wool they produce can become to heavy and kill them. Trust me, no sheep wasn’t to have so much wool it crushes them to death. Peel a sheep. Save a life. (Or lots of lives, if you consider the sea life choking on microplastics.) Any version of a “vegan” animal-material (silk, wool, leather, fur, etc.) is made from 100% plastic. They may call it all sorts of fancy things but it is plastic - plastic is made from petrol, which also fuels the whole oil- and petrol industry. You want to be dependent on green energy only? Then almost everything you buy in your local HM, New Yorker or other cheaper retail store isn’t helping. It’s all plastic. Which, as stated above, releases microfibres into the water EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. They’re washed. These microfibres degrade at an extremely long rate, whereas natural products decompose at a much faster rate. Polyester is made from the same thing they put in antifreeze for your car (Ethylene glycol). Sheering sheep doesn’t hurt them. Cow leather comes from cattle that is used in the meat industry. I understand if you do not want to use silk or fur because of the way it is produced (even though some furs are actually also byproducts of hunting, like Greenlandic sealskin, which is sold as a byproduct of Kalaalit hunting traditions and as a byproduct), but using polyester, acrylic or even viscose (the energy and CO2 print of creating viscose is GINORMOUS) instead is as harmful, if not, to the general ‘health’ of the planet. You made have saved a sheep, but you’ve just poisoned a whole bunch of fish and other water dwelling animals and microorganisms instead. If wooly products still bother you, buy 100% cotton, flax, hemp, bamboo, coconut fibre, wool (sheep, merino, alpaca, bison, angora, camel, any kind of animal you can brush/sheer, yes, even your golden retriever hairs should be able to be made into yarn if you find a spinning wheel and a spinster willing to try), sisal, etc. products instead. They’re nice and breathable too!

Bad, Basketball, and Crying: WHEN A NEW NIGGA CALL NEXT IN A PICKUP GAME AND YOU GOTTA MAKE SURE HE NOT TRASH I'm at the park about to get a game of ball when I needed one more person for my team. You gotta be picky with who you pick up. You don't wanna pick up a Player of a Anthony Bennett caliber. There's was one guy who was tall on the other court. I go over to ask him if he wanted to play and he said he would once he warmed up. Right before the game he said throw the ball off the back board. This man flew like super nigga and did the most reckless NBA street dunk. I'm like bet we about to get this dub. We're playing and I give him the ball, he pulls up from about 15 feet. I've never seen a brick so serious.That Brick could build 2 orphanages and a senior center. He dented the back board with that one. A few possessions later I pass it to him cutting down the middle. Same result. The back board started crying. His Form ugly like a "my bad I feel asleep" text. Basketball was not made for such a rough jumper. Every park has that old guy who could have went Pro but got injured. His name was Terry and he was being guarded by the tall guy. The tall guy was trash talking Terry till Terry shook him with the slowest crossover. Crossover slow last the last 2 minutes of class. His ankles evaporated . Terry went up for the strong left. "Respect your elders young nigga". This man was a false prophet. I go up to him, "Damn bro you straight?". He said his ankle was messed up. He took off his shoe and his ankle was twerking. This wasn't a good sight. We continued playing with a replacement and lost 16-11. We had to many turnover and bad shots. I shoulda been more aggressive. Basketball taught me 2 valuable lessons that day. Don't judge a book by its cover and to Respect your elders.
