Alright, my favorite little Scotties…

matthewzmedia:

I just did a google search that, while related to Scotland, wasn’t about the events of the last 48 hours or so. And one thing I’ve noticed:

Y’all are white as freakin’ Christmas.

Seriously, though, I know there are some tanned Scots somewhere in all of the Alban territories, so where ya at? Where my tan Scotties at? Just a little color…a tiiiiiny shade darker than alabaster?

Yeah.  We can’t even deny it. On the last census, it came out that 96% of Scotland is some variety of white.  The Scots are a pasty people. 

White privilege

ethiopianbutamerican:

Forty-six million white adults today can trace the origins of their family wealth to the Homestead Act of 1862. This bill gave away valuable acres of land for free to white families, but expressly precluded participation by Blacks.

Hi. I have a guinea and he's kinda old (4 years or so) I feed him every morning and by the after noon he's pee'd in his food and it's really gross. Do you have any ideas as to how I can get him to stop? Thanks, you're the best.

Hi :) What do you mean exactly with that he peed in his food? Does he pee in his food bowl with pellets? Or does he pee on his hay? Peeing on hay is fairly normal. Guinea pigs like laying on top hay and sleeping in it, it keeps them nice and warm. So when they are spending hours on/in the hay they will eventually also pee on it. It’s not necessarily a bad thing :) If you don’t want him laying in his hay you should buy a hay rack, then he won’t be able to pee in it.

I had a pig when I was younger that used to pee on her pellets and sometimes even took big mouthfuls of water from her bottle and spit all over them.  She liked the pellets soft and mushy.  It was gross.

The important thing would be to make sure his teeth are okay because some pigs will do stuff to make their pellets softer if they have problems with overgrown teeth or abscesses.  

If his teeth are okay, I’m not sure how to make him stop.  Maybe a wall-mounted food bowl that he can’t sit in?

So if you want some basically meaningless good news out of Scotland, on the same day as the referendum, St. Andrew’s golf club voted to allow women for the first time in its 260 year history.  The move to accept women passed with 85% of the vote.

I mean, it’s about a century too late to be particularly commendable, and has zero effect on most of the people of Scotland, who could never afford to play there anyway.  But, hey, equality, or something.

And there is another American profession that has a significantly more alarming problem with domestic abuse. I’d urge everyone who believes in zero tolerance for NFL employees caught beating their wives or girlfriends to direct as much attention—or ideally, even more attention—at police officers who assault their partners. Several studies have found that the romantic partners of police officers suffer domestic abuse at rates significantly higher than the general population. And while all partner abuse is unacceptable, it is especially problematic when domestic abusers are literally the people that battered and abused women are supposed to call for help.

Rosti the Drunk Potato strikes again; this time, he makes himself extra comfy with little Rusty as his footrest. Luckily, Rusty doesn’t seem to mind.
