Source. This is a real thing. It’s happening.
This is HUGE news, and of course no one is talking about it because it is not a part of popular culture. For the first time in the history of the world, there is a possible preventative cure for one of the most deadliest viral diseases to have entered the human gene pool. There is hope for those who have been diagnosed with a disease that may have given them only 20 or so years to live. This breakthrough in the science/pharmaceutical community means that other viral diseases and genetic mutations that were once incurable are now on the table for complete eradication. I’m absolutely seething that no one is talking about this on the news 24/7.
and while this is hella important, herpes is getting complex to the point there is no cure or no way to work with it.
I really need both of these to go viral.
!!!! THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT !!!!
Governor elections are coming up really soon.

ALL WE NEED TO DO IS VOTE!!!!!
REBLOG TO SAVE LIVES
McDonald’s worker arrested after telling company president she can’t afford shoes.
"A woman who has been employed by the McDonald’s Corporation for over 10 years says she was arrested last week after she confronted the company president at a meeting and told him she couldn’t afford to buy shoes or food for her children.
Nancy Salgado, 26, told The Real News that she felt like she had to speak out during McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton’s speech at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday for the sake of her children.
“It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day,” she shouted as Stratton was speaking. “Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for ten years?”
“I’ve been there for forty years,” Stratton replied from the podium.
“The thing is that I need a raise. But you’re not helping your employees. How is this possible?” Salgado asked.
At that point, someone approached Salgado and informed her that she was going to be arrested.
She later recalled the encounter to The Real News’ Jessica Desvarieux.
“The strength was very powerful, like, just remembering the face of my kids, like I say, you know, just simple things like I can’t provide a pair of shoes like everybody else does, sometimes every month, or anything like that,” she said. “And he needs to know we are what all the employees at McDonald’s are going through. We’re struggling day to day to provide our needs in our houses, things for our kids. And it’s just–it gets harder and harder with just the poverty wage they have us living in.”
“They just told me, you know, well, you’re being under arrest because you just interrupted, you trespassed the property. You’re just going to go to jail,” Salgado added. “And what I remember just telling them, ‘well, like, so, because I have to speak out my mind and I had to tell the president the poverty wage I’m living in, that’s just against the law?’ You know, just be able to speak up your mind and say, you know what, I can’t survive with $8.25? It’s just — it’s ridiculous that I’m going to get arrested. You know.”
Salgado, who is still working at McDonald’s, said she had her hours cut following the arrest and feared further retaliation.
“The CEOs make millions and billions a year and why can’t they provide enough for their employees?” she wondered.”
I think that this is beyond awful for many reasons. People can’t afford to live off of the wages that they are given currently, and can’t even speak out against it. I know tumblr is great for spreading important news like this, so please help me get the word out to support this woman.
Yeah if you haven’t seen “Kung Fu Hustle”, stop whatever you’re doing and go watch that shit.
my favourite movie hands down
It baffles me that I know so many people who flat out dislike this movie.

Rabbit Shaming [x]
This is cute! That bunny is one clever little bugger xD however..
'I eat my own poop'
All rabbits eat their poop! It’s not poop it’s a special stuff. It’s held in a different part of the rectum even though it comes out the same way. Rabbits can’t process all the goodness of their food unlike cows which is a waste. So they produce ‘cud-poop’ called ecotropes which they eat again to get the full nutrients of their food. Normally this happens at night but sometimes throughout the day they eat them too.
It’s a very effective process, even if it seems dirty to humans it’s a necessary thing for rabbits to do. If your rabbits doesn’t eat their ecotropes something’s up and your bunny might not be getting the full nutrients of their food!
The Eagle Bull- Oxendine family is being sued by their child’s school for defamation, because they asked the school to permanently change their offensive and culturally insensitive Thanksgiving curriculum and to honor a two-year scholarship taken from their daughter after they voiced their concern over Native appropriation there.
They’re raising funds to defray mounting legal expenses. Please share this link and donate what you can. If they lose, we all lose. This case has the potential to set dangerous precedent where Natives are effectively gagged from speaking out against appropriation and the abuse of our culture and sacred ways by mainstream society. This is legal conquest. We can’t allow them to play Indian and hide behind judicial robes to do it. Thank you.

They’re not even at a fifteenth of their goal right now (7/9/14) friends. If you can’t donate, at least consider reblogging this to help raise awareness!

Guys please get this out there. I don’t know if anyone’s posted about this yet, but DO NOT try and make those diy crystals!
someone needs to put these people down holy shit
I don’t always reblog stuff like this, but this is just a really strong reminder that you should never trust anything you read without making absolutely SURE you are double checking authenticity. Not only is taking everything you read on tumblr or any website at face value really gullible, but it could save your life.
Don’t wait until you see posts like this to start protecting yourself. The fact that you shouldn’t mix ammonia and bleach is fairly common knowledge that a lot of people still aren’t aware of, but it’s as simple as typing “ammonia and bleach” into google, and you’re instantly met with 1.9 MILLION links on why you SHOULDN’T do it.
You can’t stop morons who think they’re hilarious for tricking uninformed innocents by making awful DIY’s like this (beyond reporting them to the police, because you can get in some real serious trouble for pulling a stunt like this, but even then the damage has usually already been done), but you CAN protect yourself by being smart about it and doing your research.
