hey there can u tell us a bit more abt wee-beast? im honesly obsessed w him hes perfect

Wee-Beast is a little Muskox that I worked with last summer. He was abandoned by his mother, so we hand raised him in a barn. He had access to an outdoor yard as well that we enjoyed running around in. He was the easiest to train, because we got him at a young age and he enjoyed us. When the other three Muskox calves became old enough to be separated from their mothers and trained, they didn’t take to Wee-Beast so much. They didn’t harm him, but they didn’t care for him. Wee-Beast wasn’t too sure of them either, and it took about a month before they all warmed up together. Ideally, we slowly wean them off the bottle and trained them so that we can handle them easier, but also so we can perform appropriate veterinary procedures (such as checking for skin infection, hoof trimming, of harvesting their qiviut). We expose them to full pastures at about 3 months of age and slowly move them to pasture-only, no-barn animals.

Unfortunately, we had enough males. Because Wee-Beast didn’t get raised by his mother, he would’ve grown into a very large Muskox that was too friendly with people, meaning he could’ve been a harm to us, even if he didn’t mean it. He was friendly, but he was too comfortable pushing into us like a parent when he wanted something, which isn’t what you want in a 600 lb adult Muskox. The other Musk Ox wouldn’t turn out that way, but we knew he would. This wasn’t ideal for the type of operation we had (fiber farming and research).

Ultimately, Wee-Beast went to a new home. He went to Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Washington. There he gets all of the attention he could want, more than we give our Muskox here. He loves it! His new name is Hudson. Here are some pictures of him down there last October. As you can tell, he’s much bigger now!

This picture below is of him in August, but he looks so cute I had to show it.

I actually hate movies about eating disorders like starving in suburbia because I can’t sit through the cringey dialogue. I mainly like watching actual documentaries about real girls with eating disorders

Jennifer’s Bulimia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IirwsVN4L9Q&t=794s

Melissa’s Anorexia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRs2eaODyKE

Supersize vs Superskinny(not necessarily about eating disorders but I like to observe the habits of the superskinnys’) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lJO20K54rg&list=PLMG1mDltgmiz9wfLJvYll2ahwXFdf7mQS

This girl doesn’t have an eating disorder but her videos are about how she lost 100 pounds in a year https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dCXLwwByPc

Also this guy doesn’t have an eating disorder but he lost all his weight by fasting for a month https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E484qiQXxzM

I also like to watch the Freaky Eaters series by Only Human which is about disordered eating but not necessarily about anorexia/bulimia https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxNRGjzMwCdx-9foig6PNnWHCpSlcK0iT + https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxNRGjzMwCdzMgMdEK8t1K9ZJMm5bpDMx

I also watch documentaries about obesity like My 600 lb life coz it puts me off eating

Space elves or space hobbits?

Vulcans. Those pointy-eared bastards. Those green-blooded hobgoblins. Those logical, lanky nerds. They’re physically superior to humans in nearly every way. They’re three times stronger than us, they can easily go days without food or sleep, they’re telepathic, they possess highly efficient respiratory systems, and can probably hear a flea fart. Oh, and there’s that whole green blood thing.

That’s one helluva shiner you’ve got there, kid Spock.

A lot of the “facts” about the Vulcan body are really perpetuated fanon, but Vulcan physiology is a case where the fanon sometimes makes more sense than canon in terms of science. From an evolutionary and biochemical perspective, very little about canonical Vulcan anatomy and physiology makes any sense. Let’s break it down.

Any tips for fasting for three consecutive days? I need some help 💗

obviously water is very important but to turn yourself away from food spinning in circles will make you nauseous but considering you’re probably already light headed only do it till you’re dizzy. i personally like to watch videos of binge eating (for example the 10,000 calorie challenge or epic meal time) because by the end of the video in most cases they are very audible about how sick they feel and how much they regret doing it. also shows like supersize vs super skinny and my 600 lbs life (easily found on youtube) are really good as deterrents for food (for me at least). if even thinking about food will make you want to eat, write a story, paint something, do homework, anything to keep your mind distracted. adding lemon to your water may also help with hunger pains (unless you count lemon juice as breaking a fast) or smelling coffee or perfume - i find coffee works best for me - or maybe light a candle. really any smells, as long as it’s not a food smell will keep your mind distracted for even just a couple minutes.

try not to do too much activity as your body is already running quite low on everything by this point so don’t do any exercises that require a lot of movement (so don’t run, wouldn’t recommend cycling or jumping jacks or push ups) as you could faint. walking around is good just don’t do it for a long period of time.

just remember to know your limits, 3 days is a very long time without food so please eat something soon - even if it’s just a celery stick or half an apple.

stay safe and feel free to message me if you need anymore help or just someone to talk to 💙 xx

“I’ve been tagged by a few Insta-pals to share twenty things about myself, so I thought I’d go for it, except I’ll make it 20 house-related things. Because let’s be honest–she’s much more interesting. 😬🤷🏼‍♀️
1. The house is 112 years old 👵🏻 2. It has 10 fireplaces 🔥3. We are the 4th family to own it 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 4. We are about 100 yards from an active railroad line 🙉🚂 5. We bought the house on (Friday) Oct. 13th and moved in on March 13th 🍀 6. We are one block off Main St. in our town 🏘 7. We have about 7 acres behind the house that we don’t really know what to do with yet 🤔 8. I’m voting for a mini goat farm 🐐 9. I also want chickens but also I have a weird fear of fluttery things so it’s a real conundrum 🐔 10. We had no real reason at all to move except that we wanted to buy this house 🏚 11. We saw the house for the first time on a whim because it was a 40 min drive and we were hoping our newborn would sleep in the car 👶🏻 12. We found 1980’s Harley Women magazines in the attic recently 🏍 13. There are 20 steps in our staircase and I am so nervous about our daughters falling on them but I’m trying to be cool about it 😎 14. There are three wells on the property 💦 15. We keep finding skulls in strange spots around the house and in the yard (7 and counting) 💀 16. The owners left a piano here that must weigh 600 lbs. (give or take…) 🎹 17. I’ve found thee spots around the house so far where “Toby” has carved his name 👻 18. And one “Teddy” 👻👻 19. Previous owners threw infamous week-long parties here in the 90’s 🍻 20. This is the 4th house we’ve owned in 5 years, but I know better than to call it our “forever home” because apparently we are crazy, shiftless, house fixing gypsies 😜
Whew! That was kind of strenuous for a Sunday evening. Hope everyone had a nice weekend! Tagging a few pals to share if you want ☺️”

I would like to remind all these dull assholes that you'll have cellulite 98% of the time after puberty whether you're 90 lbs or 600 lbs. Like seriously, that's sexual dimorphism. Fat distribution. Part of(cis and non-HRT) women's biology. What is so offensive and hard to understand? The term "cellulite" was INVENTED as a marketing strategy meant to make women feel insecure about their body! It gets photoshopped out so we'll be decieved! I can't believe that in the info age, this is a thing.

Right? And like we have said, lots of trans people and enbies have it too!

“my 600-lb life” or “biggest loser” is not an accurate depiction of how “obese” people live. The media has always shown the extreme of things to build suspense and gain a audience. If you really want an insight on how bigger people live. Then just watch “my fat fabulous life” or follow amazing bloggers like Jes Baker.

Larger people  live normal, fulfilling, awesome lives. They’re  capable of doing everything and anything thinner people can do. The only issues  weight causes, is the systemic discrimination that larger people have to face on a daily bases. Lets stop trying to portray “obesity” as this dangerous, illness that needs to be cured. And start showing everyone that weight is not a determining factor when it comes to someones health or value.

Irish Elk

“The Irish elk (Megaloceros giganteus)[1][2] is an extinct species of deer in the genus Megaloceros and is one of the largest deer that ever lived. Its range extended across Eurasia, from Ireland to northern Asia and Africa. A related form is recorded from China during the Late Pleistocene.[3] The most recent remains of the species have been carbon dated to about 7,700 years ago in Siberia.[4] […] The Irish Elk stood about 2.1 metres (6.9 ft) tall at the shoulders carrying the largest antlers of any known cervid (a maximum of 3.65 m (12.0 ft) from tip to tip and weighing up to 40 kg (88 lb)). In body size, the Irish Elk matched the extant moose subspecies of Alaska (Alces alces gigas) as the largest known deer. The Irish Elk is estimated to have attained a total mass of 540–600 kg (1,190–1,320 lb), with large specimens having weighed 700 kg (1,500 lb) or more, roughly similar to the Alaskan Moose.[16][17][18] A significant collection of M. giganteus skeletons can be found at the Natural History Museum in Dublin.”
