the fact i’m seeing reblogs slow down despite the fact there is still news breaking is concerning
"Rape is not typically something you associate with those darling “duckies” who bob along the surface of the water to the delight of children and adults at the local pond. It’s a shock to discover that male ducks are the rapists of the bird world. Often, a gang of three or four of them attacks a female duck, sometimes resulting in her injury or death. While ducks are not the only species in the Animal Kingdom to display aggressive sexual behavior, they are the most aggressive of bird species.
What could possibly be the reason for such behavior?”
"Ducks have enormous sex organs — spiraling tentacles that can be as long as the drake itself. The Argentine lake duck’s phallus probably holds the record at 16 inches. If that isn’t bizarre enough, add the fact that in the fall, a drake’s genitalia will disappear, only to reappear next spring. Nobody knows why this happens."

The scene in Ferguson turned violent once again on Monday night after repeated clashes between police and protesters.
Law enforcement officials said early Tuesday that they “came under heavy gunfire” and had arrested 31 people by the end of the evening, Reuters reports.
This shit is past ridiculous. How long does it go on; like damn.
Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.
It is not a riot.
Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)
Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The prople of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.
Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.
