do you ever wish you could just stop time for like a couple weeks so you could just sleep and do whatever you want and just get your shit together and then after that time would just start back up again and you wouldn’t have missed anything because you would just pick up where you left off




Types of people who romanticize small town life:

  1. People who didn’t grow up in small towns






Seal hunting season officially begun last saturday 12th of April.

It’s our moral obligation to help end this barbaric and unnecessary slaughters. We have no right to kill them. We have to do something!

Please sign the petitions, it only takes a minute, and it’s really important

Canada’s shame

Stop seal slaughter

IFAW: Saving seals

Harp Seals.org : How you can help


The Inuit need to hunt seals to live. This shit is so fucking racist.

You only want to protect baby seals because they are cute, but you don’t live in the North. You probably live in an area where you can grow vegetable proteins, and in an area where you aren’t so fucking cold that a sealskin jacket is the best way to survive. Do you know what food insecurity is like in the North?

If you want to campaign for animal welfare, start in your own backyard. Don’t try and take away the subsistence of aboriginal peoples, who have been doing this sustainably for over 2000 years, or rural Newfoundlanders, who have been doing this for 400+ years.

  • The harvesting of harp seal pups (whitecoats) and hooded seal pups (bluebacks) is illegal in Canada and has been since 1987.
  • Over the last 30 years, the grey seal population off the coast of Atlantic Canada has grown rapidly - from 30,000 in the 1970s to about 350,000 today.
  • The seal harvest provides direct employment for over six thousand people per year on a part-time basis. Some sealers have stated that their income from sealing can represent a significant amount of their total annual income.
  • The current harp seal harvest is conducted as an economically sustainable activity. It can make an important contribution to the annual income of people living in rural coastal communities where other economic opportunities are limited, which may reduce outmigration to large urban centres.

These seals are grotesquely overpopulated, but every year some asshole celebrity American and British “activists” like Paul McCartney and Ellen come into Canada and tell us we are barbarians for sustainably hunting this population, while you have disgusting factory farms on your own turf. Back off with your neocolonial bullshit and look at the problems of your own countries before interfering in things you clearly know nothing about.

Ganymede and Callisto are similar in size and are made of a similar mixture of ice and rock, but data from the Galileo and Voyager spacecraft show that they look different at the surface and on the inside. Just like Earth and Venus, Ganymede and Callisto are twins, and understanding how they were born the same and grew up to be so different is of tremendous interest to planetary scientists.

Ganymede and Callisto’s evolutionary paths diverged about 3.8 billion years ago during the Late Heavy Bombardment, the phase in lunar history dominated by large impact events. Impacts during this period melted Ganymede so thoroughly and deeply that the heat could not be quickly removed. All of Ganymede’s rock sank to its center the same way that all the chocolate chips sink to the bottom of a melted carton of ice cream. Callisto received fewer impacts at lower velocities and avoided complete melting. Ganymede is closer to Jupiter and therefore is hit by twice as many icy impactors as Callisto, and the impactors hitting Ganymede have a higher average velocity.
