George Takei is a beautiful human being.
I love George Takei!
George Takei being amazing and mocking these sad, pathetic bigoted idiots in his glorious style
It is the best thing
LOOK AT ALL THIS STAR-SASS RIGHT HERE :D
I’m not even sorry for putting this on my blog. This is perfect.
He is hilariously magnificent.
I just popped on the documentary ‘The Bridge’ it starts with video of people on the Golden Gate Bridge and then this older man just hops over and jumps. I wish I could understand that level of ‘lowness’ that results in you seeing no other way out but death. My uncle killed himself when I was little. He got up with me in the morning, sat me in front of Winnie the Pooh with some dry cereal and went into the stair well of our two storey duplex and hung himself. I wish I could understand his desperation and his lack of hope that brought him to that decision. That made my first memory that day at the age of four. He had some bad shit in his life. He was wanted for trafficking drugs across state lines, he had a bad habit, and his ex wasn’t letting him see his son again unless he got clean. I get that it was bad but I wish that maybe he felt he could have asked for help. I always wonder what went through his head to force the determination to take that step.
I hope if anyone I know ever starts to feel that low that they know they can talk to me if they need to. I won’t always understand your feeling, but I’ll try, and I’ll listen.
Small Pets Are Not Toys
- Never buy an animal on impulse. You are toying with life.
- Store bought cages are very, very rarely large enough for your pet
- Never give a small pet to a child as a gift.
- Never leave a small child alone with a small pet.
- Fish do not belong in fish bowls.
- rabbits do not belong in cages.
- store bought bird cages are too small for any bird larger than a finch.
- chinchillas and rabbits live from 8 to 14 years.
- Small rodents and rabbits can die of heart attacks when scared. Do you have a quiet home for your new pet?
- adopt when possible.
I wanted to add to this post and say a few more things about reptiles. It’s kind of surprising the amount of people that don’t know this, but chameleons are extremely nervous and fragile animals. I know a few people that own chameleons and I ALWAYS see them perched on their shoulder. No, no no! Even if the chameleon seems like they’re enjoying it, they’re most likely terrified! Chameleons are a very “look, don’t touch” pet. They should ONLY be handled when ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY, such as bringing them into a vet or removing them from the cage for cleaning. I truly believe that stress is one of the number one killers of chameleons.
A chameleon is a terrible first reptile for beginner reptile keepers. If you want a reptile that is more placid, less nervous and will be okay with you handling them, get a bearded dragon or a leopard gecko. These are wonderful, low-maintenance reptiles (I mean this relatively, you will still need to provide proper care for your animal, but not nearly as much or to the same extent as higher skill-level reptiles).
Reptiles will not act like mammals do. Just because a reptile doesn’t bite you, doesn’t mean they’re happy. Reptiles in general don’t want to be held for extended periods of time, and you should always have a dedicated enclosure for your reptile to go to, even if they are “free-range”. Most reptiles have very specific humidity, temperature and dietary needs. You MUST be able to provide these things. Leopard geckos are extremely hardy animals that can survive for a LONG time without proper care. Don’t think that just because your reptile is surviving, that you’re providing the proper care that it needs.
Also, reptiles are expensive. Reptiles are very expensive. Cages alone will cost you at least 20 bucks for even the smallest enclosure, and that’s only when they’re on sale. Higher-end, larger terrariums are up in the 150-200 range. Hides, heating equipment, water and food dishes, bedding, and live food will cost anywhere from 100 to 200 dollars, depending on how cheap or how nice you want your cage furniture to be. I spent over 300 dollars on everything just for my ONE leopard gecko, and she’s only in a 20 gallon tank! Not to mention, unless you breed your own food items, you will need to purchase and have a constant supply of live prey items, depending on the dietary needs of your reptile. Bearded dragons are omnivores and must have greens and live insects in their diet. Leopard geckos are strictly insectivores. Reptiles like uromastyx are strictly omnivores. You must research the SPECIFIC dietary needs of your reptile. Don’t ever assume.
Don’t get a reptile unless you’re willing to commit your time and money. This is so, so, SO important. Don’t play lowball on an animal’s life.
If this is a commitment you’re ready for, owning reptiles can be a very rewarding experience and will give you joy for years to come. Most reptiles are very long-lived, and can live to be the same age as most cats and dogs, or longer. :)
I like this commentary a lot :D best addition to the post so far. Reptiles are terribly misunderstood pets.
You never know when Earth might be demolished, so as every good hitchhiker knows, you should always keep a towel handy. Now you can make sure your towel is always nearby and extra useful with this clever tutorial from Nerd by Night.
Nerd by Night uses embroidery to create the letters. But if thinking of how to do that makes you feel like you’ve chugged a pangalactic gargleblaster try this instead:
3D fabric paint if easy to use and often comes in a handy thin nosed bottle perfect for lettering with no brush required. Happy travels!
Hmmmm new project me thinks

I think there’s a Facebook group that made t-shirts along the lines of “Be kind to nurses. They keep doctors from killing you.” My mom was a nurse for over 40 years.
