leads law

It has come to my attention that, regrettably, there are certain exotic animal owners who knowingly and willfully try to hide the law and will attack those who share it openly online because they believe that knowledge of the law puts their “community” at risk of being busted.

Well I’ve never been a big fan of online bullies, much less online bullies who try to hide laws. So I’m gonna go ahead and remind all 8,100 of my beloved followers that the rabies vaccine in the USA is proven to work on domestic dogs and cats in clinical trials only. This means if you have an exotic like a raccoon, a fox, or a wolf or wolf hybrid and it bites someone, it can be forcibly removed from your care and destroyed so its head can be sectioned to test for rabies.

The rabies vaccine offers these animals NO legal protection even if it does actually prevent rabies, because the government does not recognize the vaccines efficacy on a legal level. This is the sad truth of the law. It isn’t scientific but it’s there.

This information is important to anyone ever considering adopting, fostering or even temporarily caring for an exotic mammal. Why certain people in these circles wish to keep such potentially fatal information hidden is beyond me.

So, again, I reiterate (just to make them mad) that the rabies vaccine offers no legal protection to an exotic such as a fox, raccoon, wolf or wolfdog if it bites someone. (Wolfdogs are occasionally treated like domestic dogs but dont count on it!)

Lack of knowledge of rabies control law can lead to tragedy for anyone responsible for exotics.

One of the most infamous and well known cases of celebrity stalking is that of 21-year-old actress, Rebecca Schaeffer, who was most well known for her role on My Sister Sam. Sadly, just as her film career was beginning to take off,  she was brutally murdered. Due to her success, she had caught the eye of 19-year-old Robert John Bardo, an obsessed fan from Tuscon Arizona, who had built the young actress a shrine in his bedroom. Bardo stalked the actress for three years, sending her letter after letter. He then flew out to Los Angeles in an attempt to meet Schaeffer on the set of My Sister Sam. He was turned away by security but this didn’t alleviate his desire to meet the actress, but his admiration had turned to rage - he returned the following month with a knife, but was again turned away by security. Bardo flew back home and while back in Tucson, he watched a film in which Schaeffer was acting in and during the film, she was in a sex scene. Bardo felt betrayed and felt as if she needed punished for becoming “another Hollywood whore.” Bardo managed to get Schaeffer’s home address through a private investigator and on the morning of 18 July, 1989, he buzzed the door to her apartment and explained he was her biggest fan. She thanked him and politely asked him to leave. He left and went to a diner to think things over before returning to her apartment and buzzing her door again. This time, when Schaeffer answered the door, Bardo produced a gun from a brown paper bag and shot the young actress to death in her doorway. He was quickly apprehended and charged with first-degree murder and received a life sentence. This case eventually lead to stronger stalking laws in the state of California.

IT COULD HAVE HAPPENED we could have had it allllllllll…..

Welcome to my new shipping hell, I’m the only one here and it sucks. But I mean. What if, though. What if Pre Vizsla recognized Maul for all the amazing potential he could have had for Mandalore. What if he saw the Mandalorian spirit Maul had so much of, and genuinely, actually, allied himself with Maul. And Maul claimed the title of Mand’alor not because he killed his predecessor but because the Mandalorian people saw someone worth following. (Although invoking single combat is truly one of the Mandalorian ways of succession, so it was a legitimate path to claiming the right to lead by Mandalorian law. Maul was behaving very much the Mandalorian by doing so in canon and Bo-Katan had no right to complain in that regard. Ugh. Anyway.)

I just really like Death Watch being able to reclaim their heritage and tradition and bring that back to the rest of Mandalore. Maul made an excellent Mandalorian and would have lead them well if canon would have just left him alone.

ANYWAY, ninth in a series of pictures of Maul being happy with a variety of characters as is his right, instead of the fuckery canon gives us.

Space theory #1

If the Universe is infinite then there must be an infinite number of particles and combinations, this means that there are exact copies of everything and everyone. Every single one of us has exact copies out there, each completely convinced that they are the original. Most completely oblivious to each other. It also means that there are near identical copies of you, simply with very minor differences. One less hair, eyes one shade lighter, a centimetre taller. And massive differences, you could be trans, gay, a stripper, an architect… dead (#goals). This leads into Murphy’s Law. Murphy’s Law states that anything that can happen will happen. Anything that could have happened over your life, has happened to one of your doubles.

"asian men were seen as threats" but isn't black men also seen as threats? Why one is fetishezed while the another is not?

I’m not sure what you mean by which one is fetishized and which one is not but I think that black men are fetishized in many ways whereas Asian men are desexualized in many ways. I’m not going to speak over black men so I can’t answer anything regarding their issues. Black men, please feel free to add any input.

As for Asian men, it started off with Chinese men coming to America in the mid-1800s, particularly during the Gold Rush. There was a lot of labor to be done during that time so this is where I’ll also begin the 4 major reasons why I think Asian men were desexualized:

1. Chinese men were willing to work for lower wages than white men and this obviously worked out better for employers. Eventually, many white men felt that Chinese men were taking away jobs from them and it lead to strong anti-Chinese sentiment with extreme events like the Rock Springs Massacre of 1885.

2. Chinese men turned to more “feminine” jobs like working with laundry, gardening, and cooking after eventually getting kicked out of more “masculine” jobs like fishing, farming, and mining. Back in those days, jobs were extremely “genderized,” not that they still aren’t today but you get what I mean.

3. Chinese men wore their hair in long ponytails (Queue). The Queue hairstyle was enforced by the first Manchu emperor of China and if Chinese men didn’t have it, they could be punishable by death. However, in America, long hair was often associated with women and femininity. White men probably thought of the Chinese men as not being “real men.”

4. A few Chinese men were marrying white women and this eventually lead to anti-miscegenation laws. From 1907 to 1922, white women lost their citizenship due to marriages with “foreigners" and could not apply for citizenship through the naturalization process if they married Asian men (thanks to the Cable Act of 1922). And who created these laws? White men of course.

TL;DR: So as you can see, it’s not that Chinese men were physically threatening to white men but rather they were threatening on a much deeper and wider scale. Chinese men were a threat to white men’s economic stability, wealth, power, status, and even marriage with white women. And we all know there’s nothing more fragile than the white male ego, especially when he thinks he’s entitled to everything. So what better way to destroy the images of Chinese men (and eventually all Asian men) by making us completely devoid of sexuality?

Note: This is probably one of the most cishet posts I’ve ever written and I definitely apologize for my privilege and especially to followers and readers who aren’t lmao.

Imagine reuniting with Sonny after first meeting in Law School

(A/N: I hope you enjoy Anon! And I just wanted to let everyone know that I may not be posting tomorrow as I’m really busy but I’ll try and I hope you’ve enjoyed this almost week of solid imagines!) 

Imagine reuniting with Sonny after first meeting in Law School

Like all things in your life, your first meeting with Sonny was awkward.

“Oh my god,” You spluttered as you unknowingly walked into the back of the tall mysterious stranger and because you did the papers you were folding flew out of your hand and scattered into a whirlwind around you both.

“I’m so sorry,” He apologised immediately, turning around and kneeling down with you to start collecting the papers.

“Why are you apologising?” You questioned with a shaky smile, not looking up at the stranger, “I was walking down a hallway and I managed to walk into the only other person in said hallway.”

“I probably would have done the same thing. I’m one of the biggest klutzes in the world. ” He reassured.

“Oh, I think I may have you beat.” You commented, still not looking up, collecting half the papers as he had collected the other half and standing up.

“Here you go,” He said, handing you the pile of papers to you.

And that’s when you finally looked at him and let’s just say you were speechless.

Put a genderist or a liberal feminist who says cis-women aren’t oppressed next to an article about female genital mutilation, a report on abortion laws leading to women being sentenced to 40 years in prison for miscarriage, statistics on rape, articles about domestic violence, reports on child marriages where girls are married away to grown men, studies of rape culture and of the dangerous consequences of porn that are just widely accepted as inevitable though they hurt many, many women. Their hypocrisy and ignorance will become obvious. Then put a genderist or liberal feminist who says women in the west (or “the first world” as many of them also put it) aren’t oppressed anymore next to an MRA or anti-feminist who says women in the west aren’t oppressed anymore, and it will become obvious they have more in common with MRAs and anti-feminists than actual feminism.

AP Chem summary: Chapter 1

1.1

Chemistry: the study of composition, structure, properties, and changes of matter.

  • Composition of matter relates to the kinds of elements it contains 
  • Structure of matter relates to the ways the atoms of these elements are arranged 

Property: any characteristic that makes a sample of matter unique 

Molecule: an entity composed of two or more atoms with the atoms attached to one another in a specific way. 

1.2 

States of Matter: the three physical states matter exists in; gas, liquid, solid

There are two types of pure substances: 

  • Elements: has a single kind of atom and is represented by a chemical symbol (basically anything on the periodic table of elements) 
  • Compounds: composed of two or more elements joined chemically 

The Law of Constant Composition/ The Law of Definite Proportions

The elemental composition of a pure compound is always the same 

Mixtures: have variable compositions and can be homogeneous mixtures (solutions) or heterogeneous mixtures 

1.3 

Physical and chemical properties can be used to identify a substance 

Physical change: matter does not change its composition (ex: Changes of state; gas to liquid, etc) 
Chemical change (Chemical reaction): substance is transformed into a chemically different substance 
Intensive properties: independent of the amount of matter examined (internal qualities) 
Extensive Properties: relate to amount of substance present (external qualities) 
Scientific Method: dynamic process used to answer questions about our physical world; can lead to scientific laws (general rules that summarize how nature behaves) Makes use of hypotheses (tentative explanations) which can be tested and refined into theories that can predict the results of future observations and experiments.

1.4 

Measurements in chem are made using the metric system and SI units. 

length- meter (m), mass- Kilogram (kg), time- second (s).  

Kelvin = Celsius + 273
Celsius = (5/9)(Fahrenheit - 32) 
Density = Mass / Volume 

1.5 + 1.6 

All measured quantities are inexact to some extent 

Precision: how closely different measurements of a quantity agree with one another Accuracy: how well measurement agrees with the accepted or “true” value Significant Figures: one estimated digit, the last digit of the measurement. Certain rules must be followed. 

Dimensional Analysis: a problem solving technique where units play a major role within the calculation using conversion factors (ratios constructed from valid relations between equivalent quantities)  

“Dont invoke the slippery slope argument”

Okay. Here’s the thing; if youre stepping out onto a slippery slope then pointing out the slippery slope IS okay. If you want to change a law and the change leaves holes for it to be abused, then Im going to point it out(for example). 

Slippery slope is not an invalid argument.

If you havn’t thrown down some traction(thought of solutions) Im going to point out how slippery that damn slope is. 

I dreamt last night that I joined the NYPD.  It was one of those “time passes really quickly” kind of dreams, so I worked the job for about 2 weeks before I woke up. 

It was a real trip, honestly.  I don’t think my unemployment will lead me into law enforcement or being a cop but it was an interesting perspective to dream from.

Şerefe!/Cheers!

Whether you need some liquid courage for the night, something refreshing to quench your palate, or something comforting to warm your heat, Turkey has got you covered on drinks. Here’s a list of beverages you can find in Turkey. 

Yeni rakı is the top rakı brand in Turkey. Turks consume an average of 1.5 litres of rakı per capita per year. 

  • Rakı: As one of the top choice alcohols in Turkey rakı can be seen everywhere. This aniseed based drink generally has a 40-45% alcohol level. Similar drinks are popular in the Balkans, and to a lesser extent Iran and other Turkic countries. Rakı is so popular in fact, it is considered the national drink in Turkey.  Rakı turns white when water is added. Due to this it has gained the colloquial title of “aslan sütü” or “lion’s milk”. In Turkish culture lions are seen as symbols of bravery and courage, hence implying it is a drink for strong men - it is popular among all types of people however. It is a popular pairing with fish and red meat dishes.  

Ayran is best served frothy. 

  • Ayran: Ayran is yogurt drink mixed with salt and cold water. It is usually paired with grilled meat dishes. Nomadic Turks have consumed ayran since before 1000 A.D. and some theorize that Göktürks had invented it when trying to improve the taste of bitter yogurt. Similar drinks are popular in Western, Central, and South Asia. 

Turkish coffee in a typical coffee cup with a side of lokum (Turkish delights). 

  • Türk Kahvesi: Sometimes confused as being a type of coffee bean, Turkish coffee is actually a method of preparing coffee. Roasted coffee is ground into a fine powder then simmered with water in a pot (cezve). The grounds are left in the coffee. A good cup of coffee should have a thick layer of foam on top. The coffee is typically served with biscuits or sweets and a glass of water. Turkish coffee is popular across the Middle East, the Balkans, and other parts of Europe. Turkish coffee has an interesting role in Turkish culture. At one point it was so popular in the Ottoman Empire that it left a mark on Turkish vocabulary. Breakfast is referred to as kahvaltı meaning under or before coffee. The colour brown is kahverengi meaning coffee colour. When a suitor visits a girl’s home with his family, the girl serves everyone Turkish coffee but puts salt in the potential groom’s drink. If he drinks it easily it is suppose to be a sign of his good temper. Kahve falı (tasseography) is also popular in Turkey. People read your fortune by interpreting the coffee grounds left at the bottom of your cup after you turn your cup upside down on a saucer. Most people do not take the fortune seriously but treat it as a fun tradition. 

A tray of black tea served in typical tulip shaped glasses on the shores of Üsküdar with Kız Kulesi (Maiden’s Tower) atop the Bosphorus in the background. 

  • Çay: Çay is by far the most popular drink in Turkey. Turks drinks tea so much and so often that they actually boast the highest average consumption of tea per capital in the world. I’ve made a previous post about tea in Turkey that goes more in-depth, you can read it by clicking here. Below are some of the more common types of tea found in Turkey.
    • Black Tea: At every corner you’ll hear people clinking their spoons against the rim of tulip shaped glasses as they mix some sugar into their black tea. Black tea is the most common type of tea in Turkey. Much of the tea is sourced from Rize, a lush green province on the eastern coast of the Black Sea. 
    • Nane Limon: A common herbal remedy, mint lemon tea is usually drunk to relieve stomach ailments, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, and to lower stress. 
    • Ada Çayı: Another popular herbal tea, sage tea is drunk to relieve upset stomachs, relax muscles, relieve sore throats and other cold/flu symptoms, and even reduce menopausal symptoms. 
    • Elma Çayı: Sometimes apple tea is thought to be the most popular Turkish tea by foreigners. This misconception stems from the fact that apple tea is typically served to guests and foreigners in tourist areas because of its sweet taste. It is not an everyday beverage for most Turks. 

A warm cup of salep garnished with cinnamon and coco. 

  • Salep: Salep is a thick warm beverage made from orchid root flour, sugar, milk, and cinnamon. It is commonly consumed in fall and winter. Salep and similar drinks can be found in many former Ottoman territories. 

Glasses of boza waiting to be served. 

  • Boza: Boza is a thick drink made from fermented wheat topped with cinnamon and roasted chickpeas. Boza was traditionally a fall/winter drink because it had to be kept cool in order to prevent spoling; however, with the invention of refrigeration it is now available year-round. The drink is believed to have originated from nomadic Turkic peoples in Central Asia as early as the 6th century B.C. 

A glass of  şalgam among a table of food at a restaurant in Istanbul.

  • Şalgam: This sour drink is made from turnips (şalgam), pickled red carrots, salt, spices, and fermented wheat. It is commonly served along side rakı. Şalgam is sometimes used as a hangover cure. Adana touts itself as the home of şalgam. 

A chef pours gravy on top of a plate of iskender kebap served with a bottle of Şıra (top left corner) at a restaurant in Kadıköy.

  • Şıra: Şıra is a highly sweet non-alchoholic fermented grape drink. It is usually served with iskender kebap, a specialty of Bursa.  

After an advertising ban on alcohol in 2013, Efes put out these ads as a way around the law.  The picture on the left reads “Görmesek de biliriz.” meaning “Even if we don’t see, we know.” The one of the right reads “Ne bu şişe?” meaning “What is this bottle?”. The company wanted to show that they could still generate sales because of how iconic the Efes beer brand and its bottle shape is in Turkey. 

  • Bira: You can’t talk about drinks in Turkey without talking about beer. Beer is the most consumed alcohol in Turkey, accounting for 63% of all alcohol consumption. The largest beer company in Turkey is Efes Pilsen, dominating over 80% of the market. Since the AKP took to office, the government has attempted to lower alcohol consumption by levying heavier taxes, restricting sales, censoring advertisement, and imposing partial drinking bans (by area). However, consumption hasn’t been affected much by the policies and is generally on a slow trend upward. 

Red wine is poured into a glass looking out at the hot air balloons and beautiful rock formation in Cappedocia. The area is one of the largest wine producing regions in the country and historically had some wine production when Christians used to live in Central Anatolia.

  • Şarap: Anatolia has a long history of wine production and is thought to be one of the oldest wine producing regions of the world dating back 7000 years. Even when Islam was introduced into Anatolia, the tradition continued not just among the Christian communities (for whom it was permitted) but among Muslims despite attempted bans. At one point even the Hanafi school of thought, the leading basis for Islamic law in the Ottoman Empire, allowed for the consumption of alcohol. Hanafis later changed their position on this subject disapproving it. Red wine is the most common wine in Turkey. Alcohol consumption varies in Turkey. The Marmara and Aegean region boast the highest percentage with 20% and 18.8% of people consuming it respectively, with South Eastern Anatolia having the lowest at 4.7%. Overall consumption across the country stand at about 17%. 

Some of the most popular brands of sparkling mineral water in Turkey. 

  • Soda: The word soda in Turkish is often used to describe sparkling water. This might seem like a mundane beverage to put on this list, but it is commonly ordered off of menus at restaurants and bought from grocery stores as it is thought to help digestion. Though we have Perrier and San Pellegrino in North America, these are marketed as luxury sparkling waters and are not as widely consumed compared to Turkey’s demand for sparkling water.  

A man gets ready to eat balık ekmek (fish sandwich) with a side of turşu suyu.

  • Turşu suyu: Similar to şalgam, turşu suyu (pickled vegetable juice) is a sour beverage made from pickled vegetables ranging from beets, carrots, cabbage, cucumbers, onion, peppers, garlic, etc. all placed in chunks in a glass of pickle brine. Also like şalgam, it is sometimes considered a hangover cure. Turşu suyu is typically drunk with fish. 

A cold glass of cherry juice ready to drink on a hot summer day. 

  • Vişne Nektarı: It may seem odd to feature a fruit juice but I wanted to put this one of the list because it’s rarely found in North America, cherry juice. Vişne is sour cherry, and this juice is particularly popular in the west coast of Turkey and in Afyon which is known in the country for its cherry production. 

Glasses of lohusa Şerbeti being prepared to serve up at a baby shower welcoming a new born a few weeks after birth. 

  • Lohusa Şerbeti: Lohusa Şerbeti is as sweet spiced drink. Traditionally it is drunk by new mothers before birth in order to increase milk production. It is also served to guests at baby showers which, in Turkey, take place after the baby is born.
