A graduate student has created the first man-made biological leaf. It absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant. He did this by suspending chloroplasts in a mixture made out of silk protein. He believed it can be used for many things but the most striking one is the thought that it could be used for long distance space travel. Plants do not grow in space, but this synthetic material can be used to produce oxygen in a hostile environment. (Video)
People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him.
Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.
This is so important. Animals are NOT toys you just can’t return them because you got bored. Think first before you buy a cute little puppy for your stupid girlfriend or sister or whatever. Okay. This just make me so mad that I can’t keep talking about it. Seriously you have no heart if you do this. Seriously
This shit pisses me off
How could you be so hateful to that poor puppy who loves you
This literally made me tear up because I imagine this is how Jaeger felt after his owner dumped him… he was only 11 months old and his family was all he knew. At least now he is very much loved with me.
This isn’t the first time I’ve reblogged this and it won’t be the last.
I know a lot of people don’t hold animals in the same positions as human, so my comparison might offend you and is a little extreme, but seriously? We don’t throw our grandparents out when they get old. You don’t throw a rose bush out during the winter. Ya the roses will bloom again but how can you love a puppy so much and hate a dog? If anything they give you more love as they grow. They become loyal, they become a steady thing to hold onto when life kicks butt. If you can’t see the value of a puppy when it’s grown, than I really question your ability to see the value in people. Maybe we should start doing things about it. You threw away your dog? Well your xbox is 5 years old. Guess I’ll toss that out along with your precious childhood toys that you’ve “grown out of”
Rant done. People are beautiful, just not their actions sometimes. Sorry if I offend you, this is pure opinion and it doesn’t apply to every situation. Gray areas exist to an extent
