Have you see this article from BBC? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/29210991
It’s amazing news. Dr. Tristan Rich of the Lort Smith Animal Hospital in Melboune, Australia, performed surgery on a goldfish to remove a large tumor from the animal’s head. The fish - named George (how friggin’ cute) - had a sizable tumor that was reportedly impeding its ability to swim, properly breathe, and eat. George’s owners also reported bullying and/or harassment from other fish in the pond fish.
George’s owners were faced with a unique choice. As a ten year old goldfish in a pond, it is not outside the realm of possibilities that George could live for another ten or twenty years if the surgery was attempted. Without, his long term fate remained uncertain, and his quality of life was certainly poor.
Dr. Rich placed George under anesthesia and, in a rather clever move, used water from George’s pond pumped into the mouth and out the gills to ventilate the fish (rather smart because it means no jarring chemical shifts that could place further stress on George’s body).
George is reportedly doing well post surgery.
It’s an utterly amazing story.
Here are some quotes from Dr. Rich:
"For the owners, it’s not about having a fish, it’s about having this fish."
”If you have a pet, regardless of what it is, then you have a responsibility to look after it as best you can.”
That’s my kind of vet! :D
The DailyMail goes more in-depth, but they have more graphic photos.

Fashion of Black Teeth in Old Japan
A Yedo chemist’s recipe for black teeth dye from Tales of Old Japan by A.B. Mitford (1871):
"Take three pints of water, and, having warmed it, add half a teacupful of wine. Put into this mixture a quantity of red-hot iron; allow it to stand for five or six days, when there will be a scum on the top of the mixture, which should then be poured into a small teacup and placed near a fire. When it is warm, powdered gallnuts and iron filings should be added to it, and the whole should be warmed again. The liquid is then painted on to the teeth by means of a soft feather brush, with more powdered gallnuts and iron, and, after several applications, the desired colour will be obtained." (Mitford 203)

Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:
Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.
Way to go, humanity.
what’s sad is hardly anyone fucking cares or wants to hear about it let alone talk about it
(And for those who are skeptical, this was concluded last year. So as much as I hate it, it is true.)
The biggest reason rhinos, of all species, are hunted is mainly because of their horns. They are considered extremely valuable in traditional Asian medicines, even though the horns are only keratin (the stuff your fingernails and hair is made out of) and have never been proven to have any actual medicinal value. [source] And poachers can’t seem to compromise, for the most part. They just kill the animal. Just cutting off the horn would cause no known pain to the animal and it would grow back, allowing for a renewable supply while avoiding needless slaughter of animals. If they simply raised rhinos like cows, they would still have access to the horns, but wouldn’t have to kill the animal and the business would probably be far more profitable. Basically, setting up a rhino farm is what I’m getting at. But instead, the laws of the different countries manage to ban any compromises (see the last article I referenced, from National Geographic). Ugh.
This is beautiful. And on the topic of sleepovers and kids getting stuck in uncomfortable situations: My mom and I had a code, ever since my first sleepover. I would always call home to say goodnight, and if I asked “How is the cat doing?”, it meant that I wasn’t comfortable and I wanted her to pick me up. I did use this code a few times, and whenever I did, my mom came up with the excuses for me. I was never stuck at a sleepover I didn’t want to be at - and as a child with anxiety and social phobia, this was a great system.

Once, I was at a friend’s birthday party, and they began to play strip poker and 7 minutes in heaven and immature stuff like that. I am the biggest virgin that you’ve ever known, so I pretended like my phone was vibrating, punched in my mom’s speed dial, and when she answered, I said “Hey mom, whatcha need? *Pause* oh, okay. So I have to come home now? Yeah, sorry, I’ll clean my room right when I get there. *pause* ten minutes? Okay, that works. See ya.” and she understood exactly what I wanted, and she came and picked me up, and even scolded me in front of my friends for ‘not cleaning my room’. I’ve used this so many times, it isn’t funny. My mom is so understanding each time.
And now I must hug my mother and post 5 million mom appreciation posts.

WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH THE ASK.
As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.
they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution
it’s really scary
it’s really infuriating
it’s really exhausting
The kardashians watching Beyoncé all salty cuz they have no talent.
Like why were they even there?
Their family is full of successful business women who are mothers, managers, television hosts, models, and video game producers. Just because they can’t sing or dance does not mean they don’t have talent.
like why are they even famous???
Theyre fashion icons, models, business women and come from a successful family but also know how to work their asses off… I could ask the same question to all of the famous tumblr users and come up with less reasons
Wasn’t she a porn star. Isn’t that the reason she’s famous.
I mean, my mom works her ass off with three jobs and is poor as fuck but you don’t see her bouncing to Beyoncé at some award show
