The Worst of Everything
This is not funny, or cute. This is fucking disgraceful and I don’t mean the dog.
You can now kinda turn any can into a bottle with Bottle Tops, a plastic thing that goes on a can. You could also use Snap Capps, or Bottle Top Cold Beverage, or you could put a plastic piece of shit on top of anything and make it a different thing. In 2014, words have no meaning, and no one knows what they want, but they still buy plastic to make things into other things, to make life better somehow, but it never works. We’re animals, driven by fear, plagued with doubt, tired when we’re awake, and restless while we should sleep. We’re biomass, same as the grass, same as coal, same as the plastic, and some part of each one of us will be plastic one day, in 2015, or 4015, or 300015, hooked onto a can of something terrible before it’s left at the zoo or thrown away. In this, not politics, religion, or culture, we are united. We are garbage, we make garbage, and we will be the garbage.

Congrats again to the stunning Lupita Nyong’o on her Oscar win!
"All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed.
For after all, he was only human. He wasn’t a dog.” - Charles M. Schultz
There are over 400 million dogs in the world today. Most breeds are only a few hundred years old, many even younger than that. Some, however, derive from the most ancient stock. There are several primary “types” that gave rise to our current breeds. Today, the Fédération Cynologique Internationale classifies all breeds into ten groups.
- Sheepdogs and Cattle Dogs
- Pinschers and Schnauzers, Molossoids and Swiss Mountain Dogs
- Spitz and Primitive Types
- Pointers and Setters
- Retrievers, Flushing Dogs and Water Dogs
- Companion and Toy Dogs
