This comic by Max Landis about Mickey Mouse having a mid-life crisis is kind of wonderful.
Damn, it really is.
Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Memories may be passed down through generations in DNA in a process that may be the underlying cause of phobias
Memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches that allow offspring to inherit the experience of their ancestors, according to new research that may explain how phobias can develop. Scientists have long assumed that memories and learned experiences built up during a lifetime must be passed on by teaching later generations or through personal experience. However, new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.

Miley Cyrus Treats Couple at Restaurant
Miley Cyrus paid for a couple’s meal after she disturbed them in a restaurant.
The ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer was reportedly noisy and caused a scene when she and a friend went into an upmarket eatery in New York, but after a couple complained, she immediately went over to apologize.
A witness explained to the National Enquirer: ”She went over and apologized and told the folks, ‘I’m sorry, I’ve just had too much caffeine today.’ Then she asked the couple about themselves.”
The pair were celebrating their second wedding anniversary, so generous Miley left $100 to cover their bill and posed for pictures with them.
Miley may be famous for her risqué outfits and twerking dance moves, but many people are surprised to find she is actually very down-to-earth and polite.
After she had guest appeared on U.S. TV show ‘Saturday Night Live’, a source said: ”Everyone expected Miley to show up with major attitude - but were stunned when she turned out to be a major sweetheart.
”She went out of her way to be kind to everyone - just plain old nice - posing for pictures backstage and signing autographs for the crew.”
The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, “a postmodern” children’s book by Jon Sciezka, illustrations by Lane Smith
i sometimes forget this book was actually real instead of being one of those lurid fantasies you sometimes concoct of your own childhood
i longed to read this at storytime but never really could
I think I either owned this book or read it a lot as a kid. This… might explain some things.
I literally hate them so much.
Like even if they occasionally set free some wild elephant somewhere or tell people to go vegan or whatever I personally think all their other shit erases any hopes of anyone else going vegan
like seriously they do fuck all for animal rights
they fucking kill all the dogs and cats and even go as far as to pose them lookin’ all cute and ‘going to a new home’ and then they gas them in their vans
and seriously what the fuck is this shit
how the fuck does this help circus animals
and seriously fur is fucking disgusting but so is their body shaming
or fat shaming
and why the fuck did they think racism was a good idea
i mean seriously dressing up as the KKK who thought yes wow this will get people to like us
seriously PETA are to animal rights like what FCKH8 is to LGBTQIA+ rights. They might get attention but they go about it all the wrong way.
Now, if only they used the millions they make to help animals, instead of making porn sites degrading women into fucking themselves with vegetables, or killing the animals they claim to love whilst lying to the public and pretending that every single one of them is disabled/unadoptable/etc. Because that’s just not the truth.
Most of their ‘ambassadors’ or celebrity supporters or whatever aren’t even vegetarian let alone vegan, or they adopt it for like two weeks and then get caught eat fish or wearing fur.
And sexism does nothing to help animals. Oppressing women to fight animal oppression is some backwards arse logic.
The only thing about them I support are their cruelty investigations, because they are vital. If more investment went into them instead of offending people, I think PETA could do a lot of good.
