[[[withholds urge to scientifically correct this post]]]

You’re more than welcome to scientifically correct this post. If any of you see me post scientifically incorrect statements, I’d prefer if you called me out on it so I can learn from it, remove the post and do better next time.

Right. Let’s get a thing straight first. Chemical refers to any substance. While it especially refers to ones which are artificially prepared/purified/distilled etc. it is not exclusive to these. If you point at any substance both in the chemistry lab and in the real world it’s going to be a chemical (or numerous chemicals). 
The mantra to get out of that is; Everything is chemicals. 
Therefore oxygen is a chemical, urea is a chemical, vitamin A is a chemical, you’re made of chemicals, everything’s a bloody chemical. So using ‘chemical’ as a scare word is wrong from the get-go. 
here’s a text post that came up on my dash yesterday about the ‘no chemicals’ trope 
Now, using ‘chemical’ as a scare word is nothing new. Anti-vaxxers, new-age hippies, health-food-store-frequenting-pseudo-scientific-vegans have been using it as a scare word for like forever. And it’s worth considering that it’s a) largely an advertising  thing and b) scientifically false. 
I’m going to quickly talk about chemical names as a scare word; Sodium Chloride sounds scary. Like If you saw ‘sodium chloride’ on the back of a packet of oatcakes or can of soup you’d probably feel uneasy because it sounds like something synthesised in a lab which you shouldn’t be eating. However, sodium chloride is just table salt. That’s all it is. So it’s worth thinking to yourself when you see a chemical name on the back of packet ‘what could this be really?’ Ascorbic acid is a pretty common one which usually makes people uneasy, but in all actuality is (one form of) vitamin C. (A- meaning without, scorbic meaning scurvy) 
While i’m here i should also say that counting calories is a pretty shit way of dieting, but that’s another story. 
Something about the delivery of this post makes me uneasy. Almost as if the creator of the image was shaming dieters to forward their anti-chemical agenda. 
[Aside; Chemical can be used as a warning in itself. Like, if i go into a lab and I see a box labeled ‘Danger; Chemicals’ I know the sort of properties I can expect from this chemical, (corrosive, probably an acid, do not handle with bare hands, stuff like that) bc that warning is used (mainly in shipping, i think, that’s what i’ve seen in the UK) to denote dangerous chemicals.  but these sort of warnings are usually only used outside chemistry; a label which says ‘chemicals’ in a chemistry lab is pretty redundant, considering everything is chemicals.]
ther was a cool post going around last month that treated  fruit and vegetables as if they were edible products that needed all their chemicals in them listed, and it really blew out of the water the whole ‘chemicals are scary’ trope
lemme have a search for it


right i’ve only found one
note how there’s also E numbers in the strawberry break down, 
E numbers are merely a shorthand to different chemicals, as ‘E161g’ is shorter and easier to fit on the back of a package than ‘Canthaxanthin’ (which is a chemical used to colour things found in edible mushrooms and fish and some other things too i think

right, that’s all i got

TL;DR ‘Chemicals’ is wrong to use as a scare word, counting chemicals is a useless endeavor, counting calories is also mostly useless, you are made of chemicals, everything is made of chemicals, please stop saying that you want ‘chemical free’ or ‘low in chemicals’ food, 

i think that about covers it, if there’s anything you want further explained then you’re 100% free to ask

"When I was a kid, I believed you would become a mermaid when you went in the water to swim".
I really loved the little mermaid as a kid growing up so I had the warped perception you became a mermaid when you entered the water ahaha. This is me learning to swim with my cousin! This piece is for a gallery show at work.

BITCH I WILL FUCKING CUT YOU



YOU’VE ANGERED THE WRONG FANDOM



You’re going down punk, just you FUCKNG WAIT!! You will learn that this fandom is far worse than you will ever want to know. We may seem soft and shy, but we’re just being NICE! We can be cold, cruel, mean, and make you suffer and wish you had never said what you said. We can send you into the farthest most empty reaches of the galaxy, summon demons to our disposal to make you suffer, and make you feel the feelings that we experience, and don’t fucking think for a single goddamn second that’s easy! The amount of emotions that would boil inside of you would literally kill you. So keep your motherfucking distance and we won’t hurt you, so stay the hell back, asshole. If you so much as insult us one more time, we will bring firey hell upon you and bitch slap you into oblivion. Your move, dildo.



We know how to kill a human and hide the evidence. Your body will never be found, and that is a promise.



You do realize a majority of the fandom are 20 somethings right? or at least in college. We can find you, kill you, and make it look like you killed yourself. Don’t try us :)



Shut up.We can exorcise a demon from you faster than Dean and Sam, believe me you need it.We can toss you into a supernova, never to be seen again, or banish you to the end of the universe where you would explode to create a new one.We can murder you and destroy all evidence of you ever existing.Basically- D-O-N-T-C-R-O-S-S-U-S

I get up at 5am and I train hard. I’ve got two young children, so I have to get up early. But I like it. Morning is when I do all my best work. Whenever I wake up, I’m up, I don’t lie there like an idiot. I get up, run up a hill, get some exercise and have some time with my thoughts.

And God said unto Abraham, “Abraham.”

And Abraham replied, “What.”

God said to John, “Come forth and receive eternal life.” But John came fifth and won a toaster.

And Judas approached the rabbis and Pharisees saying, “The one whom I kiss is the one you seek.”

To which they responded, “Gay.” 

And thus, god made Eve. And she was bammin’ slammin’ bootylicious.

see you all in hell
