Aasif Mandvi interviews Fox Business commentator, Todd Wilemon.
Rich people have such a warped perception of poor people.
This is fucking disgusting.
That is a charmer’s snake. They rake and pull the teeth out of these cobras to make them safe to work with. It is incredibly inhumane and the vast majority die of infection.
This cobra is fucking terrified for its life, unable to defend itself. This isn’t a hug, or a baby doing something brave. It’s the further abuse and exploitation of an animal that has suffered for entertainment, a snake forced in to this existence by cruel and uncaring people.
While India is still home to some of the most vile traditional snake abuse out there, I think in recent years laws were put in place to stop charmers working with snakes in this condition. I’m not sure. But seeing this on my dash with that many fucking notes and no text is gut flipping.
The grip the child has on the poor snake unnerves me. I feel so bad. :(
Poor snake :(

Women are told it is unfeminine and gross to have muscles and to cultivate strength, which in turn leads them to actively avoid doing things that will build muscles and strength, which then makes them even less capable of doing things that require strength, which the critics then use as proof of women’s inherent physical frailty. And so the cycle continues…
And the physical activities considered “feminine” are then seen as less challenging and requiring less strength than more supposedly “masculine” sports. I’m thinking of ballet, competitive pole dance, gymnastics, and things like that compared to weightlifting, boxing, etc.
I work in an office for a large company. The question is, can I get away with a forehead mandala. Part of me just wants to do it and see if they say anything (I can always cover it with make up if I need to once its healed) but the other part thinks I should ask if it would be ok. Hmmmmm decisions.
I’ve been with this company for about 6 years and have visible large tattoos, piercings and scarification already.
It’s my 3rd yoga lesson tomorrow and afterwards a group of us are going to Almscliff Crag to have a bit of a climb. I’m not sure I’ll be able to with my finger but it’s a beautiful place so plenty of wandering about to be done!
I’m so thankful for my life and whilst it’s not perfect, there are some fantastic parts to my life that I’d never change.
Rare Ferret Needs More Land to Survive the Plague
The black-footed ferret is one of the most endangered mammals in North America, but new research suggests that these charismatic critters can persist if conservationists think big enough.
Decades of human persecution (e.g., poisoning) of the ferret’s favorite prey, prairie dogs, and severe outbreaks of plague and distemper led to its extinction in the wild in 1987.
Since then, thousands of captive-raised ferrets have been released across North America, and at least four wild populations have been successfully reestablished.
However, a new factor threatens to undermine these hard-fought conservation gains: the continued eastward spread of the exotic bacterial disease plague, which is a quick and efficient killer of prairie dogs, and is caused by the same microbe that is implicated in the Black Death pandemics of the Middle Ages…
