These are some of them, most were golden retrivers and labradors, but also included german shepherds and other breeds. Sadly most are dead now, while many people forget them and don’t spare them a thought. 

As people lay dying, trapped and hurt, a team of nearly 100 loyal and courageous search dogs put their lives on the line to help humans. Without them, many more would not have survived, yet few people consider them. 

In such a chaotic, terrifying, hot, acrid-smelling, smokey and loud environment, countless human lives depended on their ability to focus, listen, respond to their handlers, and work tirelessly. Stepping over cracked glass, hot tarmac, through flames and thick smoke, being winched over deep ravines, they battled on to seek out survivors and bring them aid. 

They worked around the clock, day and night, searching, sniffing, over and over. Not only did they search, but they comforted - many eyewitnesses speak of how the dogs would stop and sit by newly-recovered victims, giving them a sense of hope and relief, before moving on to look for the next. As the situation became desperate, and the rescue workers and fire teams became utterly distraught at the amount of people who were recovered dead, these dogs brought them comfort, sitting with them on breaks, letting them grieve.

Many of these dogs are old, and have passed away. Let us remember the courage and loyalty they showed at such a horrendous event. They didn’t have a choice, but nonetheless they did what was asked of them and helped save countless lives. Don’t let their bravery be forgotten today either, or their determination to be a ‘good dog’ despite the scary and dangerous environment around them.

And let’s not forget that these dogs actually became depressed when they kept finding dead bodies; they thought they were failing to save people. The workers helping had to hide in the ruble just to let the dogs find a living person and lift their spirits.

I feel really bad writing this, but please read.
For those who don’t know, my name is Pierce and I’m transgender ftm. My home situation has never been good, but ever since I came out to my family they have gotten worse… My parents have been refusing to buy me nessisary things I need. Clothes, food, I haven’t had a bed for about a year. I sleep on the floor. I’d get a job and save up money, but my parents restrict everything. Since I’m 14, not yet the legal work age of 15 in my state, I can’t get a job. My parents won’t let me find any way to make money. The hardly even let me go out with friends. I’ve recently started volunteering at a youth wellness center but I don’t make any money from that. I just enjoy being with the kids and my friends and away from home.
Now that winter is coming it’s warmer clothes weather. And I have none. The only warm clothes I have is my girlfriends hoodie, she is letting me keep it so I don’t freeze in the morning. Things are getting so bad I’m having trouble focusing in school and things seem so shitty I just want to run away but I know I don’t have anywhere to go. I have to be here for another four years.
I feel really terrible doing this, but I wouldn’t unless I needed too. I really need winter clothes. I would do transgender clothes exchanges and stuff, but I’d get beaten by my parents if they knew I was reaching out for help. I’m hoping I can get the money I need and say someone else got the clothes for me. A friend or something. I have no clue yet, I just know I need to get clothes before winter is here. I have nothing warm. I hardly have enough clothes as it is.
If anyone could donate to me I’d be so grateful. I’m not looking for anything crazy, even $100 would buy me enough warm clothes to last me throughout the winter. My paypal is kohaicat@gmail.com even just a dollar would help me
I don’t have much to offer, but I want to give little thank you doodles based on your blog to anyone who donates. I’d be so grateful. Please send me a private message so I can thank you personally.
Even if you can’t donate, thank you for taking the time to read this

fucking protect trans youth at all costs

The minute I get the money I’m donating :)

Say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It’s what all fast-food chicken is made from—things like chicken nuggets and patties. Also, the processed frozen chicken in the stores is made from it.Basically, the entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve—bones, eyes, guts, and all. it comes out looking like this.There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.But, hey, at least it tastes good, right?High five, America!


oh my god

bitch that’s the tubby custard machine


im crying

OMFG THIS POST FINALLY MADE IT TO MY DASHBOARD IM CRYING

"bitch that’s the tubby custard machine"
10,000 years from now on the dawn of a new civilization where we are all just brains in jars flying spaceships through the vast unknowable void, i will still be laughing my ass off at “bitch that’s the tubby custard machine”. this i vow.

Not everyone sees the same color when they stare at this spinning disk.
The gif is called, “Benham’s disk" "is named after the English toymaker Charles Benham, who in 1895 sold a top painted with the pattern shown. When the disk is spun, arcs of pale color, called Fechner colors or pattern-induced flicker colors (PIFCs), are visible at different places on the disk. Not everyone sees the same colors."
"The phenomenon originates from neural activity in the retina and spatial interactions in the primary visual cortex, which plays a role in encoding low-level image features, such as edges and spatiotemporal frequency components."
Fascinating how our brains work, I see a brown tan, what do you see? :D

Light blue?

lemon yellow!

Apricot. 

I see dark blue!

I see three. Brown, Green and Dark blue

green, dark blue, and black (of course)
