My dad used to tell me that when I walk into a room, I’m the prettiest girl there. All eyes would be on me. Every young man that approached me was interested in what they saw.
I was pretty then. Willowy and thin, chestnut brown hair down my back and skin that glowed like there were candles in my…
Avocados are toxic to almost all animals (including cats and dogs). Humans are a rare exception. It is the only fruit to contain persin, a fatty acid, which, when eaten by animals causes vomiting, diarrhea, and other nasty symptoms. Consumption of large quantities can cause death within twelve hours.
Avocados are berries (fleshy fruits coming from a single ovary). Interestingly, this broad definition of a berry means that bananas, pumpkin, tomatoes, watermelon, and coffee are also berries (you can tell that to the next person who tries to argue that tomatoes are vegetables). Curiously this also excludes strawberries as berries.
Eighty percent of modern avocados originate from one “mother” tree which was patented by mailman Rudolph Hass from California in 1935. The tree survived until 2002 when it died of root rot. Unfortunately Hass only made $5,000 in his lifetime from his patent on the tree because his partner sold cultivars to anyone who wanted to buy them. Subsequently Hass spent the remainder of his life working for the California Mail Service.
Avocado also has an interesting characteristic: it is the only berry with no living animal large enough to spread it through consumption and release as dung. This has led scientists to believe that it co-evolved with prehistoric megafauna that were large enough to eat the fruit whole. The megafauna went extinct but the avocado remained as an unusual monument to an unknown dinosaur.
My next book will be called MONUMENT TO AN UNKNOWN DINOSAUR.@womaninterrupted
This is just dinosaur berries and armpits.
If you are in the back of a spaceship traveling at the speed of light and you walk to the front, are you momentarily going faster than the speed of light?
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.. Answer:
No, actually. You are going at the exact same speed as the spaceship, just like everything else inside the spaceship. This is due to Newton’s first law of motion aka the “law of inertia”.

Im taking donations for this abandoned starved cat
Her donation page is http://www.gofundme.com/dabo2o
Her background story and info is on the donation page, but just in case people dont go to it, at least share it for someone who will.
“This cat, who we have decided to name Angel, was found in the middle of the road yesterday night (8/19/14), unable to stand. Initially everyone thought she was hit by a car but after getting a closer look at her, she was simply dying of starvation. She couldn’t stand on her own or open her eyes. When we brought her in our house to feed/water her whatever we tried to give her would simply fall out of her mouth. After a few minutes of trying, we got her to start licking chicken juice off our finger and drink a little bit of water. After seeing she was still willing to eat, we decided to stop feeding her (since she could get sick) and take her to a hospital.
She has been abandoned and starved but after taking her to an emergency clinic, we find out that other than the fact she is severely underweight and dehydrated, her organs are ok and she has no diseases.
My family believes that a neighboor that was foreclosed on a few months ago threw out their house cat and simply left her on her own. Being a house cat all her life most likely made it extremely difficult to find food and avoid the enourmous amount of cyotes living in a nearby park.
We gave her to the vet to keep under surveillance last night and get some liquids in her.
My family and I have high hopes for this cat considering she is very eager to eat and purrs when held/pet. But sadly the vet gave us an idea of the price after all the procedure and its extremely difficult for us to pay, especially since this cat isn’t even ours.
My family is expecting a bill of around $1,500 (We had been originally told around 1,000 dollars but as the cat stays in the hospital longer, the bill gets bigger.
Its currently at 1,200. If the bill stays at 1,200 and we still reach our goal of 15, we will use the money to keep the cat in good condition until we can find her a new owner. Or we will use the remaining money to donate to other pet donation sites to help other animals with similar stories.
Even if its just a dollar, anything can help us keep this cat going .
Also, for anyone that donates and would consider adopting Angel, we will be looking for a new home for her. If you’re interested in giving her a permanent home please feel free to contact me.”
Thanks in advance for anyone that donates to this cat or shares her story
Stop making books into films and start making them into a tv show so we could have a lot more detail to them and they can stick to the book easier.
I thought this was going to make me annoyed but everything turned out better than expected
