There were pieces of my family all over the road… I picked up those pieces from the road and from the truck and wrapped them in a sheet to bury them. Do the American people want to spend their money this way, on drones that kill our women and children?
The banning of ozone-depleting chemicals hasn’t yet caused detectable improvements in the Antarctic ozone hole, new research suggests.
Instead, changes in the South Pole’s ozone hole from year-to-year are likely the result of natural variations in wind patterns, researchers said here Wednesday (Dec. 11) in a press conference at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union.
"Ozone is produced in the tropics, but it’s transported by the winds from the tropics to the polar region," said Anne Douglass, a scientist with the Aura project at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. That transport “varies a little bit from year to year.”
The findings suggest that measuring the total size of the ozone hole says little about ozone depletion, and that it’s misleading to use the hole’s extent alone to measure environmental progress. In fact, people won’t be able to see the true impact of reducing ozone-munching chemicals in the atmosphere until around 2025, Douglass and her colleagues said. And, they added, the hole won’t be completely healed until 2070.

Lead curse (defixio). Roman Britain, 1st-4th century AD. Found in Telegraph Street, Moorgate, London.
The dark side of life in Roman Britain
The wishing of ill-health, or worse, on a person is typical of many Roman curses.
This example from Roman London, scratched on a fragment of lead sheet, reads:
'I curse Tretia Maria and her life and mind and memory and liver and lungs mixed up together, and her words, thoughts and memory; thus may she be unable to speak what things are concealed, nor be able…'.
Curses were sometimes rolled up, hidden under floors or in wall cavities, or nailed up. After this example had been inscribed it was pierced by seven holes driven through from the back of the sheet, a procedure perhaps intended to increase the power of the curse. (x)
I feel like we didn’t stan for Badu’s Givenchy campaign hard enough yesterday.
This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.

White people: the only race with natural blonde, red and brunette hair.…that aren’t albino.
Oh wait what-
Ooh Africa and Asia??
And here’s the brunette, which actually could serve as a little redhead if you want.
Y’know, if you did your research instead of sitting on your ass being a shit racist bitch, then you would know that each and every redhead gene, or brunette or blonde gene is in everyone.
Also, you failed to even provide accurate pictures of Blonde, Red, and Brunette. The first one is black, blonde and orange (most likely dyed) and the second picture is well…a dingey nasty grey, dyed red hair and black.
Here’s a new motto
White race: The only collective amount of people with the same skin color that constantly try and oppress as many people as possible.
Now go be stupid/ignorant/racist somewhere else.
The only way they could have blonde or red hair, is they’ve got white in them somewhere down the line. Probably nordic, Nordics where bad people in the past. Other then that it’s impossible for non-whites to have blonde, red hair. If you see a black person with light skin and blue eyes and both parents are pure black, it’s because a gene of white was passed down, even if it was from 150 years back. Read about it, I have and I know my facts. Nice try though. ;)
It’s not impossible. Do your research. I did some for you.
Interestingly, contrary to popular belief, redheads weren’t just located in Northern Europe throughout history. In fact, there were pockets of peoples all over the world that had red hair. From Russia to China to certain groups of Jews and many others; there are even references to indicate there were indigenous peoples of Africa with bright red hair.
Well… agree to disagree, I’m not falling for it. I’ve read that it’s passed down by Caucasian genes. It’s like a 1 out of 10 chance for non-whites to have blonde and red hair naturally.
"I’m not falling for it" wow. That’s EXACTLY the problem, that mindset right there.
Some white folks will do the utmost of mental acrobatics to get their whiteness to be right all the time. Fact is… You evolved from blackness, science has shown that hair color is not specific to race. LAWD WHY JESUS!
Okay! For blonde hair even to be a possibility, the genetic potential had to be in those awful Black genes that actually started humanity.
"It’s like a 1 out of 10 chance for non-whites to have blonde and red hair naturally."
LMFAO YEAH AND HOW MANY BILLIONS OF POC ARE THERE ON THIS PLANET YOU DUMB FUCK
if you’re gonna make up statistics to support your racist shit at least make up ones that, y’know, actually support your racist shit
LOOOOL and how we see the truth
White folks demand ‘proof’ that their racist bullshit isn’t true, and when given those facts, they will cower back, have NOTHING TO BACK THEM UP EXCEPT WHITENESS and say ‘well agree to disagree!!!’
White supremacy and its followers don’t care about facts. No matter how much science and history shows they are full of shit, they only care about being the special snowflakes of the racial spectrum that they created, and that POC, especially Black people, are beneath them. That is all they care about.
"awful black genes" ?|?|?
fuck outta here with that bullshit.
seriously there are mad indigenous black ethnic groups that have blonde and red hair and have never been touched an interfered by whit people…. professional scientists with heeeeps of phd’s have proven this
nothing else needs to be said, white people ain’t special deal with it.
ya’ll still invented hot dogs, marvel in that
I…can’t believe this thread even had to happen. Major #facepalm about “agreeing to disagree” even in the face of scientific research. And was the OP trying to exhibit don’t sort of white supremacy due to hair color?? idgi
Merry Christmas To Me!
Haven’t posted an update in awhile but here is me (left) at the beginning of my journey years ago and me (right) two days ago at my company Christmas party.
As a holiday treat to yourself — take care of yourself. You deserve it. Your body deserves it. My health is the best Christmas gift I could ever give to myself.
The sweat, tears, stumbles, crawls, frustration, negative remarks from others and imperfect situations are all worth it in the end. You get your health and you get to say you did it.
Happy holidays everyone. Remember I am always here to help.
Thank you to all my followers for being my biggest supporters and motivators.
