    As a exotic fish and not-so-common-as-a-pet small creature enthusiast... Please don't put a betta in a blender. They need at minimum 2.5g, not those shitty small-ass "betta keepers" you see sold at pet stores, and I think a 2.5g is way too small even for one anyway. They also require a carnivorous diet (most flakes are horrible for them) and must not be OVERfed, a stable warm temperature (room temp won't cut it, unless you live in a more tropical location), and frequent water changes if you do not use a filter, especially in a smaller tank. I recommend changing at least once a week for a 5g, and 2-3 times a week if using a 2.5g. I own exotic hermit crabs... really sad how pet stores promote wrong care information for bettas as they do with hermits! :( I cringe when I see parents letting their children take home hermits in one of those plastic, metal-wire "hermit crab hotels."

    There are numerous statistical reports that show in general black males are more involved in, or as equally involved in, their children's lives as other demographics. For example, here, where the sample size is representative of the US population. From the study:

    By your logic, then, blacks would commit less violent crimes, as the "absent black father" theme is a myth - I don't suspect you'd trust Health Statistics, though, which just published some interesting findings a few weeks ago.

    Nirvikalpa replied to a thread ER experience in Open Discussion
    No it doesn't. Not even close. Back in my early days in EMS we had a dispatch call for a woman who believed she was miscarriaging. She knew was miscarriaging. She was the first person we dropped off at the hospital that shift, and 12 hours later when we dropped off our last, she was still on a gurney in the hallway, bleeding and bleeding. My heart bled for her. How alone, scared, and helpless she must have felt, and for all the world to see. Still gets me emotional thinking about it.

    Ikea hacks and Ana White are my go-to! I miss living right near an Ikea. My coffee table in my living room is an ikeahack - a LACK table with distressed wood laid on top :)

    Talking about bar carts made me hyped about owning one. Went to all of my local thrift stores today in search of one. No dice. It's ok, because I wasn't so sure I would be able to find just the type I wanted at a thrift store (I'm obsessed with gold). I've been fawning over this really, really expensive bar cart that I would never be able to afford, ever: Totally ridonk. Better be crafted in 24k gold for that price.
