Anonymous said: I have a question. One of my high school professors had snakes, but he planned on putting any snake down if they got over six feet in length. He explained that they would be too dangerous/expensive to keep. Is that okay to do?

NO that is by NO MEANS OK WOW

Holy SHIT is that not ok. I can’t even wrap my head around that it’s like??? Why would you get an animal if you aren’t going to take care of it? You can’T JUST KILL AN ANIMAL WHEN YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE CARE OF IT ANYMORE HOLY SHIT

First and foremost a 6 foot corn snake is virtually HARMLESS even if they DO bite you (which is very unusual). He has to specify what kind of snake he would consider “dangerous”. And just because a snake reaches 6 feet does not mean it is any more aggressive than it was a 5 or 4 feet. And expensive??? What the fuck does he mean by that? A $7 rat once or twice a MONTH is too expensive or something?!???! I REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK HE’S TALKING ABOUT.

Like. The only “dangerous” snake I can think of at 6 feet would be a particularly aggressive constrictor like an african rock or an extremely out of character burm or something. Or maybe a scrub python, but I highly doubt he’d get one of those at any point in time. And by “dangerous” I mean that at that length it would be wise to have two people handle them, for safety’s sake. Like, so the snake doesn’t decide to use your neck as support (NOT try to kill you literally assume your neck is a good branch to cling to) and accidentally suffocate you. That’s it.

That professor is fucked up. Just fucked up to ever consider something like that an option.

This is my 6 foot Corn he isn’t exactly harmless because he can bite and it will hurt.. but he certainly can not kill a human. 99% he is a chill noodle that wants nothing more than to just slither around.

Any animal can be dangerous.. I honestly don’t think your Professor should have ANY animal period.

I love how this post is like “Oh, clean up some of the nastiest, hard to clean shit with coke!” but doesn’t mention “Hey, you actually ingest this stuff that can clean CORRODED CAR BATTERIES.”

Uhg.

Heyyy this is because when you put carbon dioxide to make the carbonated water, you get carbonic acid. Carbonic acid varies in how much the pH is, especially in the different coke products. Strong enough to dissolve rust but not steel or any of the metals mentioned here.

But here’s the thing, carbonic acid is not one of the 6 strong acids. You know what is one of those? Hydrocholric acid. You know where you naturally secrete hydrocholric acid? Your stomach. Hydrochloric acid is some nasty stuff and WILL eat away at a screw if allowed to soak long enough. If you ever got just drop of a diluted solution on your skin in chem lab, then you can see where that would happen very easily.

The stronger acid wins. Your tummy is fine when you drink coke. Your tummy makes acid strong enough to fuck that corroded battery up. It can handle a can of coke. Please don’t swallow a screw or something to test this tho, please.

thank you science side of tumblr <3

Seriously. You could probably do all of these with lemon juice (citric acid) or vinegar (ethanoic, or acetic, acid) just because acids work in pretty similar ways. Actually, when you see people recommending vinegar as a household cleaner? This is what it’s doing!

Also, as someone who has accidentally inhaled hydrochloric acid fumes, TRUST ME, THE CARBONIC ACID IS MUCH BETTER.

Every time I see a hysterical post on modern food I just kinda point and laugh

Because dude. Dude.  You know what you breathe in and out every fucking second to survive? Oxygen. An incredibly corrosive gas that is probably responsible for more deaths across the history of the planet than anything else. Not only that, it’s a biproduct of photosynthesis. You literally rely on plant excretions to survive

Do you know what most of your body is made up of? Water. Which, given enough time, will destroy anything.

That morning coffee you like? Well shit, caffeine - lifeblood to many - is actually an incredibly potent nerve toxin (If you’re an insect). Plants actually produce that shit as an insecticide.

That refreshing zing from citrus?  Acid.  That juicy smack of a tomato? Acid and cadmium.  That tart in an apple? Arsenic.  That seasoning you put all over your fish and chips? Acid strong enough to destroy seashells - life that has evolved to survive living in a salt-drenched sea.

Stop being a tit and drink your damned coke.

EVERYTHING. IS. CHEMICALS.

We were worried our cat wouldn’t like our new French Bulldog puppy, turns out we were correct. Here they are taking a break from playing punch the new puppy in the head from the couch.
