Hey, I don't know if you've covered this before but are there any details on what specifically in marijuana that's harmful for reptiles/what it does? Even without the smoke, just the substances. I've... Got a guy talking about feeding cannabis plants to iguanas

Yeah, the substance itself is actually quite toxic! There’s been a few studies done on marijuana toxicity, but most of them refer to the smoke. There’s a few other citations, but the best comprehensive thing I know of is from this vet textbook called Reptile Medicine and Surgery. The second edition’s fairly recent (within the past decade) and everything that’s come out after typically refers to this book and the stuff cited within. (Side note: This book is an excellent resource and honestly quite worth signing up for the free Scribd trial just to download and have on hand. For most reptile owners, the detailed vet procedure stuff won’t be as useful, but the pictures and stuff about common diseases and how they present is invaluable.)

Here’s what the book’s got to say about marijuana toxicity and what it does to reptiles:

Marijuana continues to be by far the most used illicit drug in the United States. Cannabis sativa has been used for centuries for its hemp fiber, as rope, and for its psychoactive resins. Totally or partially herbivorous captive reptiles may encounter growing marijuana plants or ingest dried stems, leaves, and flowers. The main active ingredient of marijuana is tetrahydrocannibinol (THC). The highest concentration of this psychoactive constituent is found in the leaves and the flowering tops of plants. Hashish is the dried resin of flower tops. The precise mechanism of action of THC is unknown, but the psychoactive effects of this drug are thought to stem from a number of sites within the CNS, including cholinergic dopaminergic, serotonergic, noradrenergic, and GABA receptors. Ingested marijuana shows effects much more slowly than the results of the inhaled smoke; however, the effects of ingested THC last much longer. Clinical signs after ingestion of marijuana include mydriasis, weakness, ataxia, bradycardia, hypothermia, and stupor. The extent of clinical signs after marijuana ingestion is almost totally dose related. Treatment for marijuana ingestion is primarily supportive and symptomatic. Marijuana toxications are rarely fatal because of the wide margin of safety of THC. Activated charcoal administration is recommended to decrease enterohepatic recirculation. Despite its relative safety margin, recovery after ingestion may be prolonged and take up to 3 to 4 days. Fluids and monitoring of body temperature may be beneficial. We have seen two reptiles ingest fairly large amounts of marijuana. A 10-pound Sulcata Tortoise showed no effects after eating four marijuana cigarettes. However, a 6-pound male Green Iguana was stuporous after eating into a “baggie” of marijuana and needed support. Both animals recovered completely. Undoubtedly other “under-the-counter” drugs have been blundered across by reptiles. Various “over-the-counter” drugs kept on nightstands, kitchen counters, or bathroom shelves may be encountered by captive reptiles given free range in the house. For their own safety, captive animals should be confined and all medications kept in their original containers in child-proof and animal-proof cabinets.

So yes, it’s toxic. Do the animals usually die from eating it? Well, no, because the plant itself is relatively safe. Is it a good idea? Absolutely not, why would you put your animal through that??

Why I see so many people calling you racist? Wtf is wrong with them?

?? What? Are people saying that about me? Hm… I don’t think I’ve done anything recently, but you never know. Can you link me to the posts so I can apologize?

Y’all. 

I’m taking a front end developer course, and one of the assignments was to create a page (styled with css) that covers an interest of mine. 

Yeah. I totally just submitted a quick and dirty little gallery-type dealio of some of my favorite doodles. If that reviewer didn’t know Dragon Age and/or Dorian Pavus before, they sure as heck know them now. >.>;

“So Oikawa, when are you gonna ask Iwaizumi out?” Makki asked for the third time this practice. 

“I told you I’m getting there!” Oikawa shouted, loud enough that nearby team members whipped their heads in his direction. Oikawa quickly lowered his voice. “It’s not that simple Makki! Besides you’re one to talk, you haven’t even asked Mattsun out yet.”

Hanamaki put his hand on his chin and contemplated this for a brief second before turning towards Matsukawa - who was on the complete opposite end of the gym - and shouted. “Hey Matsun! Do you want to go out with me?!    

 “Yeah sure,” Matsukawa replied, looking only slightly surprised but otherwise unfazed.

“and that’s how it’s done,” Makki nudged Oikawa’s arm with his elbow and walked away, grinning smugly.

Oikawa stared at him wide eyed in disbelief and whispered to himself, “….How.”       

incitemymind  asked:

I know you've probably done this already but I've scrolled through a lot of your blog and I can't find it; can you explain the mis typing of INTJ?

Sure.

Oh, this character is really smart! They must be an INTJ!

Oh, this character is really cool! They must be an INTJ!

Oh, this character is evil! They must be an INTJ!

Yeah, no, a lot of them aren’t.

Let me put it this way: before you type any villain as an INTJ, compare him to Frollo. He looks at a BABY and says, “Hmm, one day he may be of use to me!” Frollo is already thinking 20 years down the line, after being “saddled with this misshapen… ah, sweet. I’ll raise him as my own, and twist his little mind to hate the gypsies, and then I’ll figure out some way to use the little freak to my advantage, in my long-term plan of murdering all the gypsies in Paris! …”

THAT is an INTJ villain, folks. Long term goals. Futuristic planning. Instinctive knowledge of others and how to manipulate them. The desire to CONTROL. And … inferior Se. Frollo is pulled away from sensual things to loftier pursuits but at the same time, burns with lust. It disgusts him. He tries to push away from it and then – he falls into a weak, pathetic, childish inferior Se and recklessly destroys half of what he has built in his attempt to dominate Esmerelda. He becomes rash, irrational, impulsive, and hedonistic.

Erase him as a villain, and you still see the remnants of INTJ. Long term thinking, mostly lost in symbolic pursuits, in auras, in abstracts and ideals. Planning and the ability and desire to control the external world through Te. Intense personal emotions utterly contained within himself; he desires to share them with no one, and deals with them all alone. And, inferior Se … a pull toward sensory pleasures and experiences while being opposed to them, because they feel so … earthy and unimportant. Now and again, Se takes over and everything goes to hell. The stops are all pulled out. Sensory overload!

So yes, before you type any character INTJ … look at Frollo. Look at how his cognition works. And before you assume you’re an INTJ because you’re smart or interested in abstract concepts or good at math, take another look. The odds are not in your favor, and if you don’t fit the cognition … you’re not INTJ.

He loved it when she played for him. 

When she dragged him into the empty auditorium, past rows of seats bare of an audience, up small wooden stairs onto the vast stage where she told him to sit down. He did, with his legs crossed like he was in middle school, and watched her move over to the grand piano, black and glossy and impressive. She lifted the lid, tucked her skirt to her legs and sat down at the bench. She flexed her fingers, drew in a breath and blew it right back out again, and fixed her eyes on the keys. 

She played without music sheets, like the music was coming from her very soul, written in the sharp movements of her fingers on the keys and the deft step of her toes on the pedals. Smooth, fast, beautiful. Percy felt his mind go blank. The quiz he was stressing about disappeared, the phonecall he’d had with his mom yesterday no longer worried him, the month long detention he’d managed to score went away completely. 

Because Annabeth was playing.

anonymous asked:

People who say Lucas' smile at Riley in GMNY was genuine is DRIVING ME CRAZY. he litterally pauses and like looks awkward before taking a breath and just giving her a smile. It's a forced "be nice" smile. I've done that type of smile, I've had people give me that type of smile. HE WAS TRYING TO BE NICE THERE BECAUSE WHILE HE CARES ABOUT RILEY HE FEELS AWKWARD THAT SHE IS THERE. I just can't with some of these people. I don't know how you can be so delusional that you can't see whats going on

Yeah, I have NO IDEA how people can twist that. Like, yeah I ship Lucaya now, but if the situation were reversed and Lucas looked at Maya like that (and then checked in with Riley afterward the way he does with Maya in that scene)? I’d be forced to say “whoops yeah, that’s a breach in the main hull, we’re probably going down, maybe time to switch to the old boat or get a new one.”

I mean it’s not at ALL delusional to believe Lucas still has some kinda Riley feels (I think it’s obvious he does), but it is TOTALLY delusional to act like that Bay Window moment was a positive romantic ship moment for them. That’s just…yeah. I don’t even know.

Like, I don’t think canon Rilaya is ever gonna be a thing anymore than canon romantic Cory & Shawn was, but at least the Rilaya shippers aren’t DELUSIONAL about their moments, ya know? Just like Cory and Shawn, Riley and Maya have a *lot* of moments—hell, maybe even more than Cory and Shawn did and we’re only in S2—where they’re so loving and close that you could easily, reasonably see something more to it without squinting much. I mean, obviously I don’t believe the show is ever ACTUALLY gonna go there, but Riley and Maya totally appear hella gay sometimes, as did Cory and Shawn. I know there are Rilaya shippers out there who think I’m a big mean meanie for saying the show is MOST LIKELY not gonna be about two teenage girls realizing they’re lesbian, but tbh I CAN see what they (the Rilaya shippers) see—I just don’t think it ultimately means anything more than the Cory/Shawn scenes in the same vein as far as canon goes.

But trying to twist that bay window moment into something romantic and positive for Riley and Lucas is just a…special kind of delusional. I mean geesh, Lucas and Maya even give each other a “well, damnit” look before the scene cuts. There ARE scenes in in GMNY that can reasonably be seen as positive romantic moments for Rilucas (well, there’s really just the one, but still). The bay window moment just…ain’t one of them. Yikes. Talk about reaching.
