Ka-Pow: Watch These Fish Cannons Shoot Salmon Safely Over Dams

Salmon have serious swimming skills—some travel thousands of miles to return to their original homes to breed. But even though they can jump as high as 12 feet in the air, they can’t manage to get over massive concrete dams that we have built to block their journeys back to their homes. Now one new idea could give them a boost. The plan involves whisking the fish through a long vacuum tube at speeds up to 22 miles per hour and then shooting them out the other end like a cannon.

I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.

this morning, police raided Greater St. Mark school/church in Ferguson, MO (formerly called St. Sebastian’s Parish).

community members had been using it as a safe space and staging area. police claim that the church is violating housing codes by sheltering protesters, even though the pastor has said it isn’t true.

please please please boost this. help these organizers recover the supplies they lost, and share just how fucking far these cops will sink to make the people of Ferguson suffer.

AUTO-REBLOGGING FOREVER.

romanovastiel:

Treat yourself the way you treat your favorite characters. Look into your back-story to understand your current plot. Sympathize with yourself. Recognize your flaws, and appreciate your strengths. Defend yourself. Cheer yourself on when you go into battle. Appreciate every relationship you make and always look for hidden potential. You’re the protagonist in your story. You’re the main character. You’re the hero.

Treat yourself like one.

Well, I mean, humanity’s closest living relative is the chimp, and I don’t necessarily have any problem with eating chimp meat (unless there’s some sort of health hazard but idk) so I guess that?  

Ok then let’s go to the zoo I’ll bring the bread you bring the rifle.

We aren’t doing this

But I already have the bread.

Borderlands 2 GoTY is $20 on Steam at the moment so if you haven’t gotten it yet now would be a good time to.

How many people have to die by their own hand before people realize that depression is a very big problem? Normally it’s not until a celebrity commits suicide that everyone starts paying attention, but what about everyone else? The people getting bullied and the depressed that are in middle school and high school and even adults.

The author that wrote “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” [Ned Vizzini] committed suicide and everyone was sad but didn’t look into the issue of depression. Comedy legend Robin Williams committed suicide just last week and now everyone is suddenly involved with helping depressed and suicidal people.

The truth is, no one really cares unless you’re incredibly famous and a household name. Only then will people pay attention. The question is: How many normal, everyday people have to suffer and die before everyone realizes that it doesn’t only affect the people they’re paying attention to?
