That was when I was 15, and living in a small town where the night life options were Applebees or the bowling alley.

I would like to do biology field research. I'm not sure what kind yet (probably neotropical though)

What are you doing this summer? by MrKuroko in teenagers

[–]Mirrorflute88 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'll be visiting family for 2 weeks and doing an internship thing for 3 weeks. The rest of the time I'll be hanging out with friends, helping my dad move, and getting ready for college.

What's something that you've wanted to talk about but haven't? by ynthona in CasualConversation

[–]Mirrorflute88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

  1. Suburban moms should stop wearing ponchos. They don't look good on you.

  2. I have a major case of senioritis and it's terrible.

I left because I didn't want those fuckers to have any of my money. Our entire group ordered milkshakes ($6-8 each) And apparently that wasn't enough for the greedy manager on a power trip. It's fucking Applebees it's not even a real restaurant. And they made us leave before they even brought our drinks out.

To be fair I've been asked to leave Applebees trivia night because I "only" bought a milkshake, but they didn't threaten to call the cops. They just asked our group to either purchase full meals or get out, so we left because fuck Applebees.

Lessons to be Learned from Keurig Cups by moistestsandwich in ZeroWaste

I've never used one, but using a keurig doesn't sound any easier than boiling water and using instant coffee.

Does anyone here play an instrument? by George_S_Patton_III in CasualConversation

I've played flute for 12 years, piccolo for 2. My favorite piece is In Ireland by Hamilton Harty

The one ship they actually sunk wasn't rammed. They chased it until it sank. And that was an illegal poaching boat wanted by multiple international authorities.

The Milagro III campaign (last year's campaign to save vaquitas) got a lot done. They removed 233 illegal nets, in which they found 1195 dead animals and freed 795 live ones.

That was a reality television show. Animal Planet, like any television company, selectively edits shows to make them seem more "extreme".

They're actually out there removing nets and cutting animals free. And no show about it. The donations go towards buying supplies to keep the boats running, and you can donate supplies if you're really that skeptical.

If you'd like to help, donate to Sea Shepherd. They have 3 ships in the Sea of Cortez working with the Mexican coast guard to remove illegal gill nets and save wildlife caught in them. Illegal gill nets are the main cause of death of the Vaquita.
