my friends sister was telling me about how in highschool a guy tried to take a picture up her skirt as she was walking up stairs and she saw, grabbed his phone, broke it in half, and handed it back to him and said “you can tell your mom why your phones broken”
for a second I forgot about flip phones and I was like how in the holy hell did she rip a phone in half
some animals can live up to 10 minutes after being skinned alive and tossed on a pile of other carcases…
Have you ever actually skinned an animal? Because I have and I can tell you it’s damn hard enough to do it while the animal is dead, it would be impossible to do it properly while the animal is still alive.
That video you refer to is staged. The people in the video were PAID to skin those animals alive for the camera and in 2009 a court convicted the filmmakers of paying people to perform acts of cruelty. Animals are never skinned alive for their fur. It’s a myth made up by AR groups to push their agenda. Sadly this is a common tactic used by animal rights groups. A lot of those videos you see from groups like PETA are actually fake, staged or edited to give a false impression of what is really happening and these groups hold many convictions for staging such films (but of cause they wont tell you that!)
Even just a quick examination of the video will show it’s not common practice. A live animal bleeds as the heart pumps the blood around, but a dead animal when skinned would produce little to no blood. Look at the carcasses under the live raccoon dog. Notice how they’re not covered in fresh blood like the live animal? That shows that they were all skinned after death.
Skinning a live animal would be impossible to do without damaging the pelt, (causing rips, holes, blood staining etc.) thus making the pelt completely worthless. Even the smallest hole can make a pelt loose most of it’s value, so why on earth would a farmer destroy his own product and cut all his profits by doing that? Think about it. The stress of the process would also cause the animal to shed large amounts of hair (this ruining the pelt even further), as well as putting the skinner as serious risk of injury. There are zero reasons to skin an animal while it’s still alive and it simply is not practiced.
Don’t be so quick to believe everything you see.
we’re going to look back at events like this when we’re older and be so embarrassed it was even an issue.
it’s so dumb that piercings and tattoos can impact your ability to find a job. employers shouldn’t be allowed to discriminate based on gender, race, sexual orientation, or level of punk-rockness
If you were about to have a surgery done, would you feel comfortable if she/he had gages and tattoos all over their face?
I mean presumably they went to medical school I literally would not give a single shit what they decided to put on their face
Bone up on skeletons' inner beauty with MNN's awesome guide to osseous tissue.
It’s ok buddy, you won.
Of course this occasionally happens; deer get their antlers locked in battle, and they can’t get them out. Sometimes they both die.
So what you are saying is this is like, the king badass of deer…
Pretty sure that’s a moose hon
Nuh uh, moose antlers are more concave like dis…
it could be an elk though. But i’d need to see a shot with someone standing next to it so I can tell just how big they really are.
It looks pretty fuckin big. Which is why I thought moose :P but you’re right about the antlers. Either way this picture is really intriguing
It’s an elk, not a moose. Moose and elk are both large deer.
A young black girl decided to not bleach her skin after seeing the success of Lupita Nyong’o.
Lupita Nyong’o was inspired to be an actress after seeing Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg in The Color Purple.
Whoopi Goldberg realized she could BE an actress after seeing Nichelle Nichols in Star Trek
A T-REX WITH FEATHERS, IS WAY MORE TERRIFYING THAN THE LEATHERY BASTARDS THAT I WAS USED TOO. I guess I like to think we’re revenging the families of its victims, by eating it’s descendants.
