someoneintheshadow456: nautica-the-savant: marbledmartin: thegrumpymathematician: nunyabizni: sarcasmsuitsme: skypig357: iswearimnotnaked: hi hello CATS!!!! CANNOT!!!! BE VEGAN!!!!! i cannot believe i have to fucking say this. dogs are omnivore and IF YOUR VET APPROVES your pooch MAY be able to go on an APPROVED(!!!!!) commercial vegan dog food like the brand “v-dog” which has all the essential vitamins, protein, etc. (the oldest record winning dogs have been vegan) cats are CARNIVORE and cannot fucking live on a vegan diet. a vet would laugh in your face and probably find some way to have your pet taken away from you because you’re obviously not fit to have an animal if you think you can feed a cat a diet based on your own ethics i’m vegan but this is so fucking harmful. it’s about minimizing your harm, not putting your animals on risky diets in an attempt to be perfect. DON’T FUCKING DO THIS TO YOUR PETS Idiot people If you see someone you know doing this, report them for animal cruelty and neglect. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This posts, and many of the notes on it, are bothering me. Ladies, gentlemen, esteemed colleagues from outside the confines of the gender binary; gather ‘round. Let’s throw some science in this joint. 1. Humans. Humans are not cats. Humans are not dogs. One would think this obvious, but people have a tendency to attempt such interspecies comparisons when discussing diet. Humans are order omnivora; we have essentially evolved in a manner that attempts to give us as much dietary flexibility as possible. We do, however, require a substance called B12 (or cobalamin), which is extremely important for brain and nervous system functions, as well as the synthesis of DNA and the construction of red blood cells. We cannot produce this vitamin ourselves–no animal, plant, or fungus can. The enzymes used in cobalamin production are essentially unique to bacteria and archaea–some species of which hang out in the digestive tracks of other animals. We get cobalamin in a roundabout way from fish, shellfish, meat, eggs, milk, and dairy products. While there is no naturally-occurring, vegan source of the vitamin that has been demonstrated effective in a human study of statistically significant sample size, effective synthetic forms do exist and can be used as a substitute.  Cyanocobalamin is one of the most common and is frequently found in fortified foods and vitamins. In short: Humans are omnivores. Humans have evolved for dietary flexibility, including viable vegetarianism. Humans did not evolve for veganism (be extremely suspicious of people who tell you that we did, as they are lying), but due to modern technologies, veganism is also a viable diet that humans can thrive on, should they so choose. 2. Cats. Cats are order carnivora. Cats require (amongst other things) an amino acid called taurine. We’re not quite sure how, exactly, but we know that it’s extremely important to feline heart wall tissue, retinal tissue, and brain tissue amongst other things. Cats cannot manufacture their own taurine, and must get it from other sources–primarily shellfish, fish and meat. Taurine breaks down when heated, so feeding your cat a home-cooked diet rich in this foods is also not necessarily a good idea (talk to a vet). Secondary (read: SUPPLEMENTARY. NOT A SOLE SOURCE OF TAURINE.) sources of taurine for cats include dairy, eggs, and seaweed- or yeast-based taurine supplements. In nature, cats don’t really need to worry about getting enough taurine, because (as you may have noticed), taurine sources are indeed the things that cats tend to catch and eat. However, a cat that lives in a human household is dependent on humans for food, and sometimes humans are utter fucktrucks. In short: Cats are obligate carnivores. Their primary source of nutrition is meat. They must eat meat, preferably as close to raw as possible. They have digestive tracks designed for digesting meat. There are vegan/vegetarian cat kibbles on the market. Do not buy them. Your cat is neither vegan nor vegetarian, and if you adjust their diet as if they were, you are a terrible person who is harming and possibly killing your pet. You suck. End of discussion. 3. Dogs. Dogs are slightly more nuanced here. They are facultative carnivores–meaning that they optimally should eat meat, but can survive on other things if resources are scare. Dogs also need the amino acid taurine, but can technically manufacture it themselves if the proper building blocks are in their diets. They also need vitamin D–D3 is preferable, but D2 can be used to some degree. Dogs are somewhere between us (the true omnivore) and the cat (the true carnivore). A vegan or vegetarian diet will keep a dog alive, certainly, but is unlikely to allow your pet to thrive as it lacks the recommended nutrients. You should probably be feeding your dog meat. The exception here–some dogs are allergic to conventional dog foods, or find symptoms of certain diseases alleviated by vegetarianism. In this case, a veterinarian (not you, layperson, I mean an actual trained veterinarian) may determine that the benefits of putting your dog on a vegetarian/vegan diet outweigh those of feeding your dog meat. This is relatively rare, but does occasionally happen. And no, actually, the oldest dog is not vegan–Bramble is the only dog on this list that I found had some indication of veganism. The oldest dog on record is an Australian Kelpie named Maggie, who was not vegan. It is more likely that Bramble lived that long despite the veganism, not because of it. In short: If a vet thinks that your dog may be allergic to dog food/require a special diet and recommends you try feeding it a vegetarian/vegan diet, listen to your vet. Otherwise? Dogs are carnivora. They do need vegetables and other sources of nutrients, but their optimal fuel, as it were, is meat. Your dog needs meat to be happy. Fucking feed your dog.  Now, I did manage to find two veterinarians who disagree with every other study I dug up and the American Veterinary Medical Association. Their articles are here and here. They don’t really have sources, and are essentially wholly dependent on anecdotal evidence (“my dog is a vegetarian and hasn’t died!”), but for those of you data cherry-pickers reading this, there you go.  As a rule, dogs and cats need meat. If that makes you uncomfortable, that is your problem, not theirs. If you try to implement a vegan or vegetarian diet for your pets because you implemented one for yourself, you shouldn’t have those pets. That is animal abuse. (By the way, those of you not feeding your cats and non-allergic dogs the food they need to survive and thrive? What the fuck is wrong with you? Do you not love your pets?) TL;DR If you do not want a pet that must be fed meat, you should under no circumstances acquire a cat or a dog. Thank you for your time.

You gotta slap the spirit out of them!: a-fragile-sort-of-anarchy Here is my official plan to change the world as we know it: I become a paramedic. If I encounter patients who cannot be saved, just as they're about to die, I'l look them dead (haha) in the eyes and slap 'em real hard .If ghosts are real, this will cause dozens of them to be personally upset with me. I mean, at the very least, they'll want answers. I'll be the most haunted person ever This means I'll have dozens of opportunities to record paranormal phenomenon I'll get my own show on the Travel Channel called GHOST SLAPPER, through which l'll eventually get irrefutable scientific evidence that ghosts exist, making me the wealthiest and most respected paranormal researcher of all time .On my death bed, one of my interns will slap me real hard, to make sure I come back all pissed off and confused I will be the first ghost to host a ghost hunting show (which is mega cool, come on, admit it) Eventually, the secret goes global, and everyone starts slapping their loved ones real hard as they die, because they believe it's the best way for their spirit to remain here on Earth with them After enough time, death slaps become commonplace. People have DNS (do not slap) instructions in their wills instead of or along with DNR (do not resuscitate) ones HOWEVER, because everyone expects the death slaps, they no longer have the desired effect. Getting slapped is just a natural part of dying, now, but it accomplishes nothing Like with all cultural junk, the origin eventually slips away, and the knowledge of WHY we slap the dying is esoteric at best. 1, however, remember, and haunt hospitals for centuries, laughing because everybody's gettin' slapped Thank you for your time You gotta slap the spirit out of them!

You gotta slap the spirit out of them!

On my death bed, one of my interns will slap me real hard, to make sure I come back all pissed off and confused .I will be the first ghost to host a ghost hunting show (which is mega cool, come on, admit it) Eventually, the secret goes global, and everyone starts slapping their loved ones real hard as they die, because they believe it's the best way for their spirit to remain here on Earth with them . After enough time, death slaps become commonplace. People have DNS (do not slap) instructions in their wills instead of or along with DNR (do not resuscitate) ones. HOWEVER, because everyone expects the death slaps, they no longer have the desired effect. Getting slapped is just a natural part of dying, now, but it accomplishes nothing .Like with all cultural junk, the origin eventually slips away, and the knowledge of WHY we slap the dying is esoteric at best. .1, however, remember, and haunt hospitals for centuries, laughing because everybody's gettin' slapped. Thank you for your time spiritualwarriorofdestruction What the fuck man a-fragile-sort-of-anarchy Excuse me, do you have a better idea? The ghost slapper

Today I met a woman who told me she follows me but that I can't fight racism with racism. It's interesting being me, because I get to meet new people with different points of view everyday. The woman I met was lovely, although she seemed to think that I wasn't accepting of other cultures, because I didn't promote European cultures, or European standards of beauty on my page. Many people think I hate Europeans... I have European family, I speak a European language, I was educated in a European school system, all the most financially successful businesses (that I know of) in Europe, Africa, South, Central, North America, Australia & the Caribbean have European faces at the head seat of the table. I by definition can't be racist, I have to be accepting of other cultures, because my very existence is controlled to varying degrees by alien cultures to my African heritage. I could hate Europeans until I am blue in the face, it wouldn't change the systems under which Europeans govern the planet. But when Europeans hate Africans it affects the education systems, so we are never taught about African contributions to human history, this creates racism. It also affects how African children see themselves growing up, it affects our incarceration rate, whether we get a job, where we can live, whether we can get a loan to start a business and even if the water we get, is clean or poisoned. Racism is structural not personal. I never asked to be me, not that I would change it for a second, I am a beautiful African man, my purpose is to spread love in the world, as that is what humans are supposed to do. But when defending beauty you have to be prepared to fight, you have to pick a side in order to protect & stand up for what you think is right. I've experienced racism all of my life. So if it seems that I am prejudiced towards some European cultures, then it's probably a reaction, to what I know their functions are & how I see these systems affecting my people globally. ❤🖤💚 I put & think about Africans first, Africans have suffered the most & still suffer to this day because of European structural violence. I promote African beauty first because... more below: lightcodes It's a good day when you run into @chakabars at the airport and get to chat about what racism really is, political system structures, cultural reflections, and self-love. He even told me not to buy the orange juice l was looking at because I was already getting a banana and they didn't go well together lol.
