Now HE is a role-model

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.

they criticize him because they aren’t brave enough to emulate him.

Wow, this is awesome!

So, you know, you mention the Tupamaros as a “robin hood organization” and don’t mention that they were a Marxist group, because that word is scary to liberals.

And the post kinda glosses over that the country was at the time, under a military Junta.

Jose Mujica is so much better than this photoset

Re-reblogging for the above.

Real leadership, comrades.

Uruguay ROCKS.  I did a whole bunch of reading on it because Steve and I were considering moving there.

hey guys wanna hear a joke

libertarianism

"ok so get this….im KIND OF an anarchist but i still want capitalism because i have decided that the best way to get MAXIMUM FREEDOM is through the rich having unlimited power to exploit labor""wait a sec what do you mean people who arent wealthy are supposed to have freedom too nobody told me that wtf is this social justice bullshit"

LOOK AT HOW WELL THIS IS SOURCED

That aside I need to double check this because I can almost guarentee this is a statistic that has been taken out of context and spun, I WILL REPORT BACK WITH THE NEWS

Also twice the non reciprocal means that women fight back to their abusers and men don’t

It doesn’t mean that women are committing twice the amount of harm

Here, have 286 sources. Happy now?

No? Have 1700 then.

I just can’t bravo

I don’t mean to be insensitive here. But has anyone thought MAYBE the rates are higher because BASICALLY MOST assaults to female go unreported?

You honestly think men report domestic abuse more than women? 

I think there’s more men in this world that would say “this bitch is craaaazy” and report, than women that feel confident enough to stand up for themselves, yes.
I didn’t mean for my comments to come across as a “whoa is us women, we need attention” just stating an opinion/thought.

Then I think you have a very warped view of the situation. For one thing a lot of men say stuff like “bitch is crazy” to flippantly refer to their abuse without admitting it was abuse. People who say stuff like that don’t report. More importantly: Men who call for help in domestic violence situations frequently get arrested. Not to mention that there are basically no resources for abused men. There are practically no shelters, little opportunity for legal recourse and protection, and if there are children involved—good luck getting them out of that household or ever even seeing them again.  This is the kind of shit that happens when men call so much as a  domestic abuse hotline; you really think men are going to be willing to go to the actual authorities? So if you’re going to say something that defies basically everything I know about male ipv victims, I’m gonna need some cold hard facts that say women are less likely to report.

Here is a Science fair project presented by a girl in a secondary school in Sussex . In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.

It has been known for some years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.

Microwaves don’t work different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster. This movement causes friction which denatures the original make-up of the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.

So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these ‘Safe’ appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed him when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it’s safe. But proof is in the pictures of living plants dying!

NO, YOU PIG-IGNORANT ASSWIPES.

SOME KID’S CLASS PROJECT IS NOT REAL SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH. YOU’VE HEARD OF “DOUBLE BLIND”, RIGHT? CALL ME WHEN IT’S PUBLISHED IN NATURE.

the structure or energy of the water

what the fuck does that even mean you realize that a water molecule is made up of three fucking atoms and if you rearrange it it isn’t water anymore and you would fucking notice

the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about

Here is a handy diagram I drew of all the different types of radiation:

The Electromagnetic Spectrum Cheat Sheet

Microwaves != nuclear reactors, so calm your tits.

it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it

…do you understand what DNA is and how eating works? DNA is a jumble of protein in the middle of each cell and it tells the cells in that particular organism how to make more cells. Your body does not care about whether your food has any DNA in it or not. The chemicals it cares about are things like vitamins and sugars, as well as inorganic shit like salt.

(You can denature DNA by heating it or using chemicals like urea. It is like what happens when you fry an egg, which is basically a big glob of protein—the strands break apart and it looks like tiny white strings. Very cool.)

Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster.

I…just…that is the fucking definition of heat, whether you’re heating something over a flame or in a microwave or using the Sun. The difference is that microwaves mostly affect the water molecules in your food and they don’t need to use as much heat. Water boils at 100°C, which is just about as hot as water can get before it just turns into steam; but that’s like the lowest setting on your oven. Oven- or stove-cooked food tastes different partly because it uses higher temperatures and partly because heat is transferred in a different way.

This movement causes friction

That’s not what friction is.

It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.

Let’s take these one at a time.

  • Vitamins are classified as water-soluble or fat-soluble. So cooking things in water will dissolve the water-soluble vitamins (C and all the B’s). Just plain heat doesn’t do that, so microwaving veggies—which keeps the water in—is actually a healthier option.
  • Proteins: Breaking the chemical bonds in proteins (denaturing) is a part of any cooking. However, denatured protein is still nutritious—that’s why you can meet your protein intake with foods like fried eggs and baked chicken.
  • Minerals are just chemical elements, like off the periodic table—sodium, iron, potassium. (Vitamins and proteins are very complex combinations of elements.)

Which brings me to the “radiolytic compound” bullshit. When you talk about breaking apart, say, iron—you’re talking about breaking down the iron atoms themselves. Which is a whole lot different than breaking the bonds between atoms. It takes hella radiation. You need shit like gamma rays—the OOOH SCARY NUCULAR radiation—which we’ve already established do not come from your microwave.

things that are not found in nature

What the shit does that even mean? You all know radioactive elements occur in nature, right? In rocks and also in living cells. That’s right, you have this radioactive kind of carbon INSIDE YOU. You get it by eating those delicious plants. We can tell how long ago something died by how much of it is left.

Tons of shit that occurs naturally is horribly bad for you. And tons of shit that never existed until we cooked it up is great for you—like the chemical compounds in a lot of medications.

PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THIS SHIT ARE WHY CHILDHOOD DISEASES THAT CAUSED SERIOUS ILLNESSES AND/OR DEATH THAT WE NEARLY ERADICATED WITH VACCINES ARE NOW COMING BACK AND WHY CONSPIRACY THEORIST TWATS ARE ASKING CITY COUNCIL NOT TO FLUORIDATE THE WATER AND WHY GLOBAL WARMING WILL WRECK OUR FUCKING PLANET.

LERN 2 SCIENCE. Think before you reblog. And microwave your veggies.

This was incredibly amusing to read. Thank you so much for sciencing.

Lol “structure and energy of water”

wildunicornherd is damn amazing on this

Is it possible (given the idea that this is even a Real Thing That Totally Happened) that she killed the plant by watering it with hot fucking water fresh from the Micro Waves?
