So my mom got mad at my dad because he didn’t think I was responsible enough for another pet so she went out to the pet store and bought a $3 beta fish and put him in a pickle jar and it has been sitting on my desk for 3 days now and my dad has yet to even notice that he’s there.

Unfortunately your dad may have had a point… because this is a really bad home for this Betta! Contrary to popular belief, betta do not live in puddles in the wild and keeping them in bowls or jars will lead to their suffering and premature death.

But you can still show your dad how responsible you are by getting the proper setup for this little guy!

Betta need at least 2.5 gallons to thrive, preferably 5 gallons. Bigger setups are actually easier to maintain!

In a small containers like this ammonia builds up too fast and will slowly poison and eventually kill your fish. Fish create ammonia when they breathe and poo, and ammonia is toxic to them. Ammonia can’t be seen or smelled - so water can be crystal clear and still toxic to fish. In a container this small you’d have to be doing twice daily water changes to keep ammonia from harming your fish.

Betta are also tropical fish and require a heater! They need to be at water temperatures of 75-80 degrees - room temperature is too cold for them. Cold leaves them lethargic, sickly and open to other problems. But you can’t safely use a heater in a container this small, so again, I urge you to get him a bigger tank!

You won’t regret it - betta can be such personality filled, zippy little fish when given the room to be! Some studies even say they’re just as smart as other animals, and can feel pain the same way. So please don’t let your little guy suffer - get him a better home!

I PHYSICALLY CAN’T NOT REBLOG THIS WHEN IT COMES UP ON MY DASH
IT’S TOO COOL

It’s called Winterguard. It’s a sport. Those girls are marching band color-guard girls during the summer touring season, and during the winter they compete against other color-guard teams to music. Costumes, props, mats, everything has to be carried onto the gym floor and then taken back away and counts as part of your performance time. 
So when Family Guy or other popular media makes fun of color-guard girls, it pisses me off. We are not rejected cheerleaders. We are what you see above. We kick ass. We spin rifles and flags and sabers. 

ok that’s pretty badass.


Color guard/ winter guard/ drum corps is more badass than people give them credit.

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).

This is the one time of year that I love wasps.
Not because the wasps themselves get any nicer. They’re horrid little creatures year round. No, it’s because I have a couple of big apple trees out back, and late August, early September is when the apples start ripening.
Now, if you don’t harvest your own fruit, there are two things you need to know about apples.
The first thing you need to know about apples is that, when apples get ripe, they tend to fall from the tree at the slightest breeze.
I often work late at the office; by the time I get home, there are piles of apples scattered everywhere - and sure enough, the wasps are out in force, gorging themselves on the fruit. When I go to clean up the windfallen apples, the wasps naturally do the “rawr, I’ma fuck you up!” routine for which wasps are known.
The second thing you need to know about apples is that they ferment very rapidly in the late August heat.
So: the wasps try to come at me, but they’re too drunk to fly. They get about an inch off the ground, then faceplant directly into the turf, flip over onto their backs, and lay there, legs twitching in the air as they try in vain to find something to sting.
Perhaps I’m a man of simple pleasures, but I bust up laughing every. single. time.
Fucking wasps.
