PSA - PLEASE READ AND SPREAD HE WORD!!!

IF YOU SEE THIS PLANT AT ALL, DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!

Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive herb in the carrot family which was originally brought to North America from Asia and has since become established in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest regions of the United States. Giant hogweed grows along streams and rivers and in fields, forests, yards and roadsides, and a giant hogweed plant can reach 14 feet or more in height with compound leaves up to 5 feet in width.

Giant Hogweed sap contains toxic chemicals known as Furanocoumarins. When these chemicals come into contact with the skin and are exposed to sunlight, they cause a condition called Phytophotodermatitis, a reddening of the skin often followed by severe blistering and burns. These injuries can last for several months, and even after they have subsided the affected areas of skin can remain sensitive to light for years. Furanocoumarins are also carcinogenic and teratogenic, meaning they can cause cancer and birth defects. The sap can also cause temporary (or even permanent) blindness if introduced into the eyes.

If someone comes into physical contact with Giant Hogweed, the following steps should be taken:
  • Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and COLD water as soon as possible.
  • Keep the exposed area away from sunlight for 48 hours.
  • If Hogweed sap gets into the eyes, rinse them with water and wear sunglasses.
  • See a doctor if any sign of reaction sets in.
If a reaction occurs, the early application of topical steroids may lessen the severity of the reaction and ease the discomfort. The affected area of skin may remain sensitive to sunlight for a few years, so applying sun block and keeping the affected area shielded from the sun whenever possible are sensible precautions
PLEASE, DO NOT JUST READ AND SCROLL! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION!!!

Extra note: if you live in Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan or New York and see one of these, call your state’s department of agriculture to report it, and trained professionals will come kill it before it can produce seeds and spread.

Frankly, if you see one in general, probably call your DOA and see if there’s a program in place.

Do not burn it, because the smoke will give you the same reaction.

If for some ungodly reason there isn’t a professional who can handle it for you (and please, please use a professional), the DOA of New York has [this guide] for how to deal with it yourself.

OH MY FUCK I HAVE THESE IN MY BACKYARD.

This is a fucking epic gif…  haha

This is a fucking epic gif… haha

My teeth have changed… Or is it my perception and feeling that has changed? Oh fuck hahaha sometimes expanded awareness causes discrepencies

Today I came to a big realization…

I am limited by my thought of myself. 

Once I take myself out of the equation I realize that there are no boundaries. 

It becomes one symbiotic beautiful whole.

“This kind of living in the fantasy of expectation rather than the reality of the present is the special trouble of those business men who live entirely to make money. So many people of wealth understand much more about making and saving money than about using and enjoying it. They fail to live because they are always preparing to live. Instead of earning a living they are mostly earning an earning, and thus when the time comes to relax they are unable to do so.”

  • 1. Learn that you are not your ego. Learning not to identify with ego is an essential first step.
  • 2. Learn to recognize and reject damaging thoughts. Understand that you are in control of your thinking.
  • 3. Understand that this is a skill which takes practice.
  • 4. You can actually say to…

That is so cute… Out of all the animals I raise, I’ve got a sweet spot for those big goofy goons

Q

Anonymous asked:

Culture is society, and includes all people. The leaders at the top are just as much a product of culture as everyone else. To believe that there are people in control of that is to count yourself and everyone else a victim. No one is a victim. No one group is in charge of something as inherent to society as culture. The "programming" you see in television needs an audience to believe it. People are just as responsible for being followers of those who you think are propagating an agenda.

One thing I disagree about when it comes to this is that the ones at the top dictate the ‘path’ set in regard to financial stability.  House mortgage, monthly electricity, monthly cell phone, internet, gasoline, heating, water, etc.  Look at the 1880s when Rudolf Diesel and Tesla’s careers were shattered by the powers that be.  John D. Rockefeller, etc.  I agree that we choose to live this life, but it is almost as if we are trapped by a cultural phenomena accumulated as we relinquish ourselves as a society in time to the powers that be.  In our need for instant gratification, get now, ask later.
