So. Who else here reads Atomic Robo?
And if you don’t: WHY NOT??
lizwuzthere said: You are too kind friend. RESCUE BOT HOLOFORMERS FOR ALL I SAY :U
Liz you are the truly kind one! Unlike Anon-kun. I mean, I don’t want to stir up trouble, but I don’t get the thinking behind “wow you’re doing something I dislike but which doesn’t harm me so let me tell you I dislike it!” On the other hand, Anon-kun was being very civil, and earned my respect that way. Because Anon-kun really does have the right to tell me if I’m doing something they don’t care for or which just confuses them. Also, to all my followers, anon or not, this is my reminder that if I ever post something that you think needs a warning tag, please let me know. That’s a case where an “I’m uncomfortable” ask is 100% necessary! I try not to post stuff that would need warnings, but all the same…
If I were you friend I’d have just responded with that one comic but I have been known to be less civil than you so there ya go :U
Also friend dang I adore your humanformer designs for these guys. OH MY GOODNESS I just noticed that that is Blurr! Lookit his dopey smile too oh gosh I love it!
Seriously friend I love all of these~ But my favorites are Hot Rod/Rodimus (who is super hot) and Shockwave (who is so smokin’ hot like whoa someone get a fire extinguisher)
[MAKE BETA CRY WITH THE ANGST OF YOUR STORY (Fanfic Flamingo) HAPPY THE REST OF THE DAY]
Liz you have no idea how close you got to actual tears when you killed beaky okay?
Hehehhh. Maybe I’ll getcha with this next story :U
PSA - PLEASE READ AND SPREAD HE WORD!!!
IF YOU SEE THIS PLANT AT ALL, DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!
Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive herb in the carrot family which was originally brought to North America from Asia and has since become established in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest regions of the United States. Giant hogweed grows along streams and rivers and in fields, forests, yards and roadsides, and a giant hogweed plant can reach 14 feet or more in height with compound leaves up to 5 feet in width.Giant Hogweed sap contains toxic chemicals known as Furanocoumarins. When these chemicals come into contact with the skin and are exposed to sunlight, they cause a condition called Phytophotodermatitis, a reddening of the skin often followed by severe blistering and burns. These injuries can last for several months, and even after they have subsided the affected areas of skin can remain sensitive to light for years. Furanocoumarins are also carcinogenic and teratogenic, meaning they can cause cancer and birth defects. The sap can also cause temporary (or even permanent) blindness if introduced into the eyes.
If someone comes into physical contact with Giant Hogweed, the following steps should be taken:
If a reaction occurs, the early application of topical steroids may lessen the severity of the reaction and ease the discomfort. The affected area of skin may remain sensitive to sunlight for a few years, so applying sun block and keeping the affected area shielded from the sun whenever possible are sensible precautions
- Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and COLD water as soon as possible.
- Keep the exposed area away from sunlight for 48 hours.
- If Hogweed sap gets into the eyes, rinse them with water and wear sunglasses.
- See a doctor if any sign of reaction sets in.PLEASE, DO NOT JUST READ AND SCROLL! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION!!!
Extra note: if you live in Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan or New York and see one of these, call your state’s department of agriculture to report it, and trained professionals will come kill it before it can produce seeds and spread.
Frankly, if you see one in general, probably call your DOA and see if there’s a program in place.
Do not burn it, because the smoke will give you the same reaction.
If for some ungodly reason there isn’t a professional who can handle it for you (and please, please use a professional), the DOA of New York has [this guide] for how to deal with it yourself.
OH MY FUCK I HAVE THESE IN MY BACKYARD.
Fucking invasives. Signal boost.
Re-reblogging because I checked Snopes, and not only is this shit true, but the text on this is pretty much the same as it is there! Stay safe, kiddos.
According to the US Department of Agriculture, these are currently the states and provinces in North America where Giant Hogweed is present. Even if your state/province is “clear” that doesn’t mean that it is not there. If you see Giant Hogweed in your yard or anywhere please call your DOA! This stuff is mad deadly!
Also here is a human for size reference. Since they are huge it should be easy enough to see and spot when fully grown.
The burns can also be very bad, far worse than any poison ivy. Just Google ‘Giant Hogweed Burns’ and you’ll see. It can cause bad blistering, red painful rashes, and more. Please be careful of this plant!
I have to ask- why are Vermont and New Hampshire just like. immune?
They’re totally surrounded and yet they’re in the white. How is this??
