The environmental impact of oysters, in one photo
The water in both tanks came from the same source. The one on the right has bivalves. Not only do oysters naturally filter the waters in which they live, they can even protect humans from destructive hurricanes. For more, read about New York’s efforts to bring back oyster populations in the once-toxic Hudson River.
Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?

It is interesting to note that zebra muscles are actually a problem not only because they reproduce so fast but because they clean up so much! This lets light down where it hadn’t gone before and ripples along the food chain as species who were surviving in “dirty” water can no longer live. BUT another cool thing about zebra muscles is that they also take a bunch of heavy metals out of the water in places where the water was polluted…. There are so many side effects of tampering with ecology that we are only beginning to learn what we don’t know. Also, science is awsome.

It’s fun when teenagers in sex education try to chock or embarrass you as a teacher, but don’t succeed.

Sorry, you asking me with a fake innocent voice “what is oral sex” will make me answer truthfully, not blush and gasp. :P

On that whole ‘constantly shifted’ thing

spiritus-sonne:

I continue to be disappointed by the ongoing use of phrases like “constantly shifted” to describe concepts and experiences of contherians and “suntherians”. It’s a matter that’s even covered as the first point in the Project Shift Q&A:

Are contherians in a constant state of shift, or always “half-shifted”?

No, even though many people attempt to define contherianthropy by that. Contherians do not have the ability to shift into their theriotype(s) because they are 100% humananimal all the time in a fully human-animal integration. This does not, however, mean that those who shift have theriotypes not integrated greatly into him/herself, but this has to do with human-to-theriotype integration, not theriotype-to-self integration. Contherians can’t be “half-shifted” or in a constant state of shift because it renders the application of the term “shift” meaningless in this case on the account that if there is nothing for the contherian to shift into, they can thus not be constantly shifted into that thing.

Damn it therian community, it’s been over 15 years since contherianthropy was coined—can’t we get our shit straight on this matter by now? (Though honestly, there are numerous people who don’t conflate that to “being constantly shifted/half-shifted” and I’m glad for that, but remain disappointed about the number of people who do still frame it as a constant shift.)

Being in a part human, part nonhuman mindset constantly does not equal mental shifting. Why does that have to be such a difficult concept to grasp? (Even though I probably already know why.)
