This Week in WTF Pop Culture History: Waterworld teaches Hollywood how to make money off of big-budget garbage.
How One Terrible Movie Ruined Hollywood
Waterworld became a cautionary tale/punchline for years after, because everyone forgets the most important part of the story: It made its money back. Oh, it only made $88 million in the USA (catastrophic, considering the budget was twice that), but it made an astounding $175 million overseas, where delighted audiences ignored the bullshit going on in the subtitles and just watched the stunts and jet ski chases.
You have to understand that this was all new — a few decades ago, American movies rarely got an extensive worldwide theatrical release…
Just because it’s not happening doesn’t mean it’s not happening, wait what?
If Every Lie on the Internet Was True
My friend said “wow you got your phone stolen and now this, you need to be more careful”. Victim blaming at its finest
In old Venezuela: You blame crime!
In soviet Venezuela: Crime? Blame you!
"well, u ain’t supposed to be outside with that phone"
Alright, I’m going to talk about this a bit seriously now. There was a recent study by the University of Zulia that, in tl;dr format, discussed how Venezuelans suffer from a peculiar lack of self-esteem manifested in their acceptance of adversity (“It could have been worse” “at least I didn’t die, so I should be thankful”), and how it’s socially frowned upon to complain “plainly”, to be simply upset that a bad thing happened.
The study noted that a very small percentage of the population will dare to do this, and usually it’s the same part of it that considers they are in charge of their life, choosing not to trust messianic figures or leaders, and the same sort that doesn’t believe their survival (specially in adversity) is just a “favor” from above.
Just last saturday, as I was in the car with family, they were talking about how a friend of my dad was mugged and lost his phone. As dad told the story, recapping this man’s facebook post on the subject, it went like “Today, I fortunately survived a robbery, and thankfully only lost my phone in the process.”
I immediately balked, pointing out the response was psychologically all shades of wrong. But the truth is, that brand of wrongness has affected us since a long time now, and I’ve come to believe it’s no longer just a coping mechanism, but something that has been imposed on us, as a culture, to make us more pliable.
Venezuelans have been made a nation of thankful beggars, self-policed by those who will wriggle their fingers at you if you try to be a chooser. And the reason for this is simple: choosers don’t settle, choosers look for improvement and change. And that is terrifying for those who made us beggars.
Can’t find toilet paper at the store and have to look through the entire town, all day, to find some? Don’t complain! At least you are in good health to go toilet paper hunting.
After all, we don’t have access to foreign currency, but we are made to feel grateful when we’re given a trickle of it.
We don’t have constant electricity, but we’re told it could be worse so we should be happy.
We don’t die, so we should be thankful. Even through we suffer losses, even though we can’t calmly live our lives and work, at least you get to survive, even if you don’t get to live.
All dogs share the same basic digestive system despite the range of physical variations (and attitudes) across different breeds. Every dog is designed to eat a raw animal-based diet, from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane. Breed-specific dog food brands are simply a marketing gimmick aimed at playing on the pet owner’s emotions, and their desire to feed their pet the best possible diet.
I don’t think that dogs need an animal-based diet. If done right they can be vegan and not contribute to the murdering of innocent animals. We’ve adapted and domesticated them enough to do so. They’ve evolved to live without meat just like us.
200% incorrect. Vegan diets are carbohydrate-based. Carbohydrates are inflammatory, feed cancer (glucose), contribute to periodontal disease (leading to systemic organ failure, eg heart), cause insulin spikes leading to a multitude of other issues in the long-term (thyroid, liver, diabetes, heart disease) and also cause pancreatic problems due to extreme stress on the pancreas (secreting heavy loads of carb enzymes over a long period of time). The low moisture content coupled with high plant protein may also cause renal failure in the long term. The preservatives used may also be linked to cancer (BHA, BHT etc), and these diets also skew the omega3/6 ratio, causing further inflammation (linked to cancer again). They cause urine alkalinity leading to urinary problems such as crystals, blockages and UTI’s.
Brief into to dog anatomy/physiology:
- Stomach PH: Their highly acidic stomach is designed for eliminating harmful bacteria and breaking down bone into a gel-like substance. Humans have a much more alkaline stomach acid which is why we would struggle to digest raw bone.
-Digestive Enzymes: Higher level of proteases to break down animal protein. High bile load to help push through bacteria.
-Dental Anatomy: Sharp pointed teeth designed for ripping and tearing flesh and bones.Dogs do not chew their food as we do, they are wired to swallow chunks quickly as a basic survival instinct.
-Jaws: Dogs also have strong jaws that physically cannot move sideways (like your own can). This sideways grinding action is a feature that allows pre-digestion of plant material. Again, dogs rip off chunks and swallow them whole.
-Lack of Salivary Amylase: Omnivores have this for pre-digestion of carbohydrates. Dogs and cats do not. The canine pancreas secretes amylase as a backup, however this does not mean they should be fed a high carbohydrate diet every day for a lifetime. Processed food (incl vegan) is 40-70% carbohydrate.
-Lysozyme: Instead of amylase, dogs have lysozyme in their saliva which is an antibacterial. This may be useful for destroying any harmful bacteria in carrion/rotten food/feces, as well as wound cleaning.
-Gut length: The canine gut is short in length which is because flesh must be pushed through quickly. It does not need to sit and ferment, as this could allow bacteria to multiply to harmful levels. Note that plant eating animals have a long digestive tract and even multiple stomach chambers in order for plant material to be slowly broken down by the necessary enzymes.
-Nutrient profiles. Dogs have 0% biological requirement for carbohydrates. They gain every single essential nutrient from a prey based diet such as Whole Prey/Prey Model. Vegan diets are full of processed lab-made vitamins and minerals. Many vitamin pre-mixes are made in china and shipped to the country of manufacture.
All in all, dogs will survive on a high carbohydrate diet but it will cause systemic effects eventually. Similar to smoking, a junk food diet affects every dog differently and some may be affected more severely than others, and in different time spans. You can also expect high vet fees in the form of dental cleanings, dental surgeries and various health problem later on in life.
It is not recommended that you feed your pet the equivalent of a big mac for the entirety of its life. This is essentially what kibble and vegan diets are. Evolution has changed the appearance and even the behaviour of your dog, but their digestive system is still geared towards meat. Basically, you are paying money to have a company slowly kill your pet from the inside out.
0/10, Not Recommended.
Hard science here for anyone who needs to shut down a “vegan pet owner.” It’s abuse. Feed your animal the substances they evolved to eat or do not own an animal, it’s as simple as that.
