THIS IS A PICTURE THAT SOMEONE TOOK WHO WORKS ON AN OIL RIG IN TEXAS.

HE WANTED TO GET A SHOT OF THE LIGHTNING THAT WAS FLASHING BY. 
HE WAS UNAWARE OF THE TORNADO UNTIL THE LIGHTNING ILLUMINATED IT.

This has been called a one-in-a-million photo; taken south of Ft. Stockton, Texas.

"This is a nea- HOLY SHIT, FUCK THAT"

It comes in the night… beware

KILLED IT

Mic Drop. 

Excuse me?  Never been done before?  

How short a memory most humans have.

Well, considering he said this girl was pretty young, she’d probably never seen these. They got discontinued

They’re still in circulation (I have a bunch of them) and Obama is old enough to have seen them and know about them unless he just that uninformed.

This is not a photo manipulated picture. This is one of many of our fallen soldiers. Their remains are gathered up and bagged and sold as some merchandise like their lives are some sick joke.

With your help, we can end this disgrace and bring these fallen warriors home to their families instead of placed on shelves.

You know what I’m starting to think you guys aren’t even being sarcastic with this anymore

You really can’t tell these are plastic bones and not real ones?  Sad.

The joints on the two bones in front makes it pretty obvious as well as couple other factors.  

Ever since 1966, there has been at least one orca death in captivity per year.

 ? - Seeing how the trends have gone, I am constantly worrying about who it will be this year.

Guys, are we forgetting Bingo? He passed away this August at Japan’s Port of Nagoya Aquarium :(

RIP big guy, along with all the others on this sickeningly long list :’(

I’m so scared right now, I don’t even want to think about who might be next :(

Would also be nice to have their ages at date of death on this to show how young they are all dying.

Look at the smiles of the trainers who are in the med pool with the whales. They want to go back to waterwork. I don't want it "just because" - I want it because the trainers want it. I talked to a trainer a while ago, and he said they want waterwork to come back,

freedomforwhales:

arlluk:

and will you still be saying “i want it!” when somebody gets killed again, or maimed. because you know it will happen, there’s no way of preventing it short of getting out of the water entirely.

And here we have a prime example of the pro cap mentality.

"But I WANT waterworks!" They scream as trainers die and intelligent animals are deprived of their most basic freedoms in the name of entertaining said selfish pro caps.

Always about what the humans want/need and not what the cetaceans need/should have.  So Sad
