My new Crowntail Betta fish named Pheonix. :D #crowntail #betta #fish #pheonix #bettafish

Hi! Unfortunately this is a really bad home for Phoenix :( Contrary to popular belief, betta do not live in puddles and keeping one in a bowl will lead to its suffering and premature death.
Betta need at least 2.5 gallons to thrive, preferably 5 gallons. Bigger setups are actually easier to maintain!
In a small bowls 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!

betta myths debunked
Here’s a cheap 5.5 gallon tank that would be great for your little guy! You just need to also get a heater.

If your not a marine biologist gtfo. Your facts are wrong btw. Its my fish, leave me alone.

So basically what you’re saying is: I don’t give a shit about my fish.
What this person linked and said is all true. I’m sure you didn’t even bother to read everything or click the links. Fish need much more room than you and most of the public think. I suggest listening to kai-ni, otherwise your fish will die in a year or two, and live a miserable life.

Their life span is 2 years, whats your point?

^ That just proved my point. You don’t give a shit about a living being. It depends on you for proper care. Even if it lived a few weeks, it should STILL receive the best care you can give it - which is NOT in a tiny ass bowl with a huge ass plastic plant that can rips it’s fins taking up most of the space.

Bettas can live an upwards of 5 years. I currently have a betta that is going on 5 years. When properly cared for they can live longer. If you don’t want to care for a fish, don’t get a fucking fish. 

Im 90% sure

are going to school to be marine biologists and they preach this stuff too.

izzy-the-fish-girl has definitely gone to school for this. So are you going to take our advice now?

I can confirm this. I have a degree in Fisheries Science from Virginia Tech. I am attending a fisheries science master’s program in the fall. 
While I understand it’s a hard pill to swallow that you haven’t been giving your pet proper care, a lot of us had to do that at one point in time, but keeping animals is a learning process. That’s part of the joy.
If you don’t believe us, at least check out the Anabantoid Association of Great Britain and their guidelines to keeping Betta splendens.
Your betta really is gorgeous. A larger tank and warmer water would let you see his fins so much better. I do hope you’ll consider what we said. And the bowl wouldn’t even have to go to waste! Put a marimo in it! They are cute little fuzz balls! :3

^ BOOM. SIT DOWN.

Creationist: If Evolution is True, Is Rape Wrong?

atheistassessment:

In a Creation Today clip posted online yesterday, Creationist Derek Isaacs explained that if evolution was true, then rape must not be such a bad thing:

This is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen, and this kind of ignorance is very terrifying for many reasons.
Statements like this show a huge misunderstanding not only about evolution and animals, but human behavior itself.
If anyone actually thinks that evolution means rape is okay then they need to do a lot more research and I suggest they research birds. On top of that they should realize that it takes more than just the MALES DNA to reproduce. Life isn’t just because of MALES.
A ducks reproductive system is just one of many examples of why this isn’t true. Female duck vaginas have become very complex. They make corkscrews and sharp terms which makes the vagina look like the hardest maze on earth. This is to counteract many male duck from technically raping a female duck. If evolution created a system where reproduction should happen at all costs then there is no reason for female ducks to adapt in a way that can help them avoid egg fertilization.
Another interesting thing about birds is that many are monogamous, meaning they will only have one partner at a time, some will keep that partner for life. Unless there is a special bird god that gives bird god laws, then its irrational to say that evolution changes marriage or basic relationship rules.
Evolution is a fact, but that fact that it exists doesn’t mean the behaviors and relationship patterns that humans have grown to have are now disposable. We evolved and adapted into these emotions as a way of survival. Survival of the fittest doesn’t always mean being the strongest. You don’t need to rape to reproduce. Creating family bonds and working together is often the best way to create strong and healthy offspring that can continue a legacy.

I’m super fucking depressed because my stupid body can’t function like a normal body.
I sprain my back, and when it finally heals I get super sick which causes me to have tendonitis. I’m on a million fucking pain killers which sucks cause 1) they make my head foggy and im a tired asshole all the time who wants to throw up, so I try to not take them and I feel terrible and 2) im terrified of relapsing and doing shit again even though I controlled myself when I sprained my back.
Alex learned to braid today so that he could do my hair, but I can’t even fully enjoy doing shit. Like being touched in unmanageable which is dumb because I really want a hug. I have no appetite nothing tastes good AND I CAN NOT GET COMFORTABLE AND FALL ASLEEP WHILE ON MY BACK.
This summer will kill me.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."


(taken from this post on the experiments of Harry Harlow)
This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

And to counter the surgeon argument, do you really think surgeries never change? Of course they do. I mean, they don’t change in the operating room, but a surgeon in a pressed situation might suggest “what if we try ____.” because all patients are different. They might also change things because they see a negative trend.
If the medical field never changed the way they did things, we’d be still getting leaches and sending gays to mental hospitals.
Every field in the world must be ready for adaption and change.
