Guuuurl yes and I just wanted to say a quick thing to her and she engaged me into a whole conversation she’s so sweet
I love how Darren’s parents go to everything.
i’m literally sitting here trying to imagine what mama criss and big sean could possibly be conversing about
i’m so confused.
awhile ago i made a vegan blog but i can’t remember the name of it. so i go through, signing into each account i have with all of my emails (a klaine rp one, one for these supernatural comics i used to do, an old one i was going to use as an art blog) - but none were the vegan blog. so i thought, maybe i used Will’s email to make an account.
i put in Will’s email address but none of my usual passwords worked, so i sent a thing to reset it. i reset the password…and the tumblr account is “beautifulsonofagun”
this is definitely not a blog i created. it has no entries, no layout, nothing.
and Will is NOT a blogger, he barely even uses facebook. i asked if he made one, though, and he snorted and said no, and i never will.
WHERE DID THIS COME FROM THEN
and where is my vegan blog?
I’ve noticed that Pantene’s ad about gender roles has been circulating, and it is a great ad, but it’s JUST an ad and Pantene only cares about getting your money. PLEASE do not let it influence you to use Pantene’s products. Pantene is a Procter & Gamble product, and they still needlessly test on animals.
Which animals are most vulnerable to animal testing?
Mice and rats are the most commonly used animals for both toxicity testing (testing ingredients and products on animals to determine whether they are safe for humans). For toxicity testing, other animals commonly used include rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, dogs, sheep, pigs, fish, frogs, cats, and monkeys.
How are the animals used or tested?
- An animal is exposed to a test substance, either by being forced to eat it, breathe it, have it rubbed on their skin, or have it injected. The test substance is often a household chemical, an industrial chemical, such as a pesticide, a food additive, a cosmetic ingredient, or a pharmaceutical product.
- Animals are observed for toxic effects such as vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, respiratory distress, appetite or weight loss, rashes and allergic reactions, skin and eye irritation, salivation, paralysis, lethargy, bleeding, tumors, birth defects, and many other harmful effects.
- Animals are then killed to end the experiment, worse still, their internal organs are often examined for harmful effects.
Depending on the specific type, tests can vary in duration from a few hours to several days or months.
A few specific examples of common toxicology tests include:
- Reproductive and developmental toxicity test: Rats or mice are exposed to a test substance and bred. After the animals give birth, the adults are killed so that their reproductive systems can be examined. The offspring are examined for birth defects and are also eventually killed.
- Acute toxicity test (LethalDose50): Animals, usually rodents or dogs, are fed a test substance in increasing quantities to find out how much is required to kill them.
- Skin irritation test (Draize test): The test substance (often an acid or painful substance) is rubbed onto a rabbit’s skin to see if it causes irritation.
- Inhalation toxicity test: Rats are either placed in sealed cages or squeezed into restraint tubes pumped full of gas, forcing the animal to breathe in the vapors of the test substance, usually for 4-6 hours/day for either one-day, several weeks, or months. Animals are examined to determine whether breathing the substance has toxic effects.
How often are animals euthanized or killed after completing their testing?
The majority of animals used in toxicity tests are killed at the end, often, so their internal organs can be examined. The way animals are killed can vary, but the most common methods are asphyxiation (forcing them to inhale a deadly gas, such as carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide), decapitation (beheading) and cervical dislocation (breaking the neck or spine).
