“It takes years and years and years to develop these chickens to grow these feathers. And now, instead of ending up on a fly, it’s going into women’s hair,” said Matt Brower, a guide and assistant manager at Idaho Angler in Boise.
…They come from roosters that are genetically bred and raised for their plumage. In most cases, the birds do not survive the plucking.
At Whiting Farms, Inc., in western Colorado, one of the world’s largest producers of fly tying feathers, the roosters live about a year while their saddle feathers — the ones on the bird’s backside and the most popular for hair extensions — grow as long as possible. Then the animal is euthanized."
I had no idea that education
- rendered all of its recipients completely able-bodied
- gave you a car that works, instantly.
- dissolves all bonds with all people who may not have a car or be able bodied so that you can just be like, “Can’t leave because of a hurricane, mom? Fuck yo wheelchair, I’m getting the hell out of dodge!”
- gives you magical powers to predict, with deadly accuracy, the intensity of hurricanes before they come ashore
- makes it so you have no attachment to your home. You’re like a human rock band, at all times, on tour and cold as ice.
- makes it so that you can’t possibly ever be poor. EVER!
Man. I should get some education, so that I have a car and never get old or become infirm or need money.
No words for this idiocy. My hands flew to my mouth a la Stefon the second I read it.
“You’re like a human rock band, at all times, on tour and cold as ice.”
They haven’t announced exactly where in Cali they will be yet but obviously I will be stalking them and crossing my fingers that Harry tags along.
I drove the entire state and most of Oregon in one day before, I can do it again.
Let the craziness begin!
So this weekend my brother got some not so great news about his dog. He noticed she wasn’t doing too well after having her surprise litter and took her to the vet where he was told that she has a uterine infection. She is on antibiotics right now but if they don’t work the vet said she would need a (most likely ridiculously expensive) operation.
Since he is planning on graduating from college at the end of this semester and taking care of her and her 9 pups until they could be adopted was enough stress before she was sick, I will be leaving to pick up the puppies in about an hour.
Yes. The 9 puppies of Puppypalooza 2k11 are coming home with me. It will definitely be an adventure and we aren’t so sure how the cats will react but my brother needs this break to focus on himself and getting the momma dog better. So wish me luck and get ready for the sure to be many puppy pics in the future! We might also needhelp naming them so start your thinking caps!
Also, I’m putting this out there again but if you know anyone in the Southern California region who is or knows someone else that is in the market for an American Bulldog Standard-type mix (possibly with some Beagle) puppy please send them my way! You can e-mail me at email@example.com or just drop me a message in my ask.
