It is possible to shatter a crystal glass if you sing at the same frequency at which the glass rings and if you sing loud enough, yes.

related to that quote, I really want to send in a quick statement/article to the Bullsheet (my school’s daily paper) about meat being very unsustainable in honor of Earth Week. it can’t be something too elaborate though, because i have so many fucking things to do tomorrow

According to the Environmental Working Group, lentils are the top “climate-friendly” protein. Combining the carbon emissions involved in producing lentils and the post-production emissions (from processing, transport, and retail) only totals 0.9 kg of CO2. Chicken, the ‘lowest emitting’ animal protein, is nearly seven times higher.

Dogs (and Cats) Can Love

Neurochemical research has shown that the hormone released when people are in love is released in animals in the same intimate circumstances.

Oxytocin is thought to be released when you’re anxious too. You can’t just conclude that “love” is what’s really happening here. This article is not referencing a new peer-reviewed study… it links to this guy’s website, who has made books and an entire franchise out of what he calls the “moral molecule” (oxytocin). Any respectable neuroscientist will tell you that things are not as simple as this (oh look, I even found a paper that says this http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3558684/). In fact, there’s one who does a TED talk about “neuro bunk”. This guy is making money off of this crap. Don’t buy into it.

goddammit people are reblogging the original post. christ.

Anonymous: I think without a doubt the music with headphones idea is genius!! Sunglasses would be a nice touch too. Ebaugh's pond, now there's a book in there for you somewhere, n'est-ce pas?? The pond has recently developed a case of measles, unless those things are there for water Frisbee.

Measles? Water Frisbee? I’m a bit confused. I did see what looked to be a book in there, though. I think my partner took it out
