The Great Mental Belly Flop

Sam's personal internet hoarding space set aside for the posting of profound and interesting things found 'round the web dealing with social justice, psychology, music and the potentially devastating consequences of enabling people to indulge in bad habits on the internet. But actually it's just pop culture references and procrastination.

Look at these thugs destroying their community!

Gang violence within the pumpkin community, we must not let these gangsters tarnish the great American image with their shenanigans 

Where are the white leaders speaking up about this?! Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Bill O’ Reilly?! Where are you?

Who are we to blame for this type or destructive behavior? Iggy Azalea? Macklemore? The white community has got to stop with this behavior if they ever want to move on.

But then again maybe the pumpkin deserved it? What did the pumpkin do to provoke them? We should just wait for the facts first.

Newsflash: Men like to be represented just like women do. It’s harder for me to self-insert as a character if they’re female.

this is the laziest fucking gang I’ve ever seen

this description made me think of a bunch of Greasers jut laying all over the sidewalk like ragdolls and they only raise their hands to snap their fingers when someone passes by

Pet your turtles, they enjoy snugglies more than pain

I feel like this is especially appropriate for cars and turtles in the road.

And don’t drill holes in them or paint em. Its painful and toxic and you’ll make the poor things cry! 

Our turtles love having their heads and chins scratched.  And a light pat on their shells.  No hits, or thumps.  They love good pets, please pet them with love.

Shells are LITERALLY their backbone, imagine if someone thumped you hard on the spine. It would suck right? Don’t do it. 
Also their shells are covered in a VERY thin layer of fingernail-like material called scutes. When you paint it, a) it’s very easy for the toxins in the paint to absorb into the turtle’s system and poison them, b) it cuts off circulation to the thin layer of living skin below the scutes, c) it deforms the shell because turtles, especially young turtles, grow rapidly and the paint will inhibit proper shell growth and d) prevents the turtle from absorbing necessary vitamin D from UV rays (you know, that stuff they need to live). NEVER EVER PAINT A TURTLE EVER.

Next time you want to knock on a turtle/tortoise shell, go ask your neighbor to punch you in the ribs, and see how that feels. Not only is it the spine, but their lungs sit near the top of the curve as well—THIS IS WHY TURTLES/TORTOISES CAN DIE IF LEFT FLIPPED OVER TOO LONG, IT IS VERY DISTRESSING FOR THEIR BODIES.

be gentle with living beings you are responsible for.
