Honestly it’s kind of hilarious when pro-choicers get super defensive about subjects that don’t even mention abortion, just fetuses as anything other than some nebulous “clump of cells” or whatever.
Remember that stupid Doritos commercial during the Superbowl where the baby senses the Doritos and kicks himself out of the womb? People threw a fit over it because it was “humanizing fetuses” (Even pro-lifers know babies cannot literally do this, come on!)
Or that shower thoughts post saying if a woman carries a female fetus, that fetus technically has all her egg cells that she will ever produce (actually true) which in turn means the baby’s cells might be carrying the mother’s future grandchildren. They threw a fit and said “No that’s not how it works” while providing no sources.
Like okay we get it you really love abortions and fetuses are gelatinous blobs of goo and not people.
Science Fact Friday: Tetrodotoxin, ft. a small gif because I’m avoiding my real obligations.
Why does tetrodotoxin not affect its host? More studies need to be done but at least a few species possess mutated sodium ion channels. The tetrodotoxin can’t interact efficiently with the altered channels.
Another interesting tidbit: Animals with tetrodotoxin can lose their toxicity in captivity. It is suspected that the animals accumulate the toxic bacteria as a side-effect of their diet. After several years of captivity on a tetrodotoxin-bacteria-free diet, the bacterial colonies living in the animals die, residual toxin is cleared from the system, and the animal is safe to handle.
Well, I was in such a state of shock, I completely blacked out. I can't remember a thing. It wasn't until later, when I was washing the blood off my hands, I even knew they were dead.
I have NO idea what fashion is but I wanted to join the wave of ripped-jeans model @danisnotonfire and then got wild with k-pop styled silver-haired @amazingphil :D Their looks in 2k17 are somehow crazier than ever! And I let myself out with making up outfits! It was fun, thanks to the twitter squad xD
