I love the irony of lighting up a birthday joint. It’s like saying: “let’s celebrate the fact that I was born x years ago by allowing myself to die a little bit faster”.

So you say “Capitalism is the only system that works?”
There are fewer than 820 Icelandic goats left on the planet, and nearly half that population will be slaughtered in less than a month when the Haafell goat farm is foreclosed upon. This species is in a fragile state after suffering from a severe population decrease, and if the money isn’t raised to save the farm, their already small number will be reduced even further.
There is an IndieGoGo page set up in the farm’s honor, and they are only halfway to their goal with 18 days left. There are a ton of great perks available, many of which come from the farm itself. If you can, please donate.
81% funded, with ten days left!
C’mon tumblr; cute animals, endangered species, dragons and Game of Thrones! Why isn’t this funded yet?
Amazon Indian Warriors Beat and Strip Illegal Loggers in Battle for Jungle’s Future | Warrior PublicationsA group of warriors from Brazil’s indigenous Ka’apor tribe tracked down illegal loggers in the Amazon, tied them up, stripped them and beat them with sticks.
Photographer Lunae Parracho followed the Ka’apor warriors during their jungle expedition to search for and expel illegal loggers from the Alto Turiacu Indian territory in the Amazon basin.
Tired of what they say is a lack of sufficient government assistance in keeping loggers off their land, the Ka’apor people, who along with four other tribes are the legal inhabitants and caretakers of the territory, have sent their warriors out to expel all loggers they find and set up monitoring camps.
Last year, the Brazilian government said that annual destruction of its Amazon rain forest jumped by 28 percent after four straight years of decline. Based on satellite images, it estimated that 5,843 square kilometres of rain forest were felled in the one-year period ending July 2013.
The Amazon rain forest is considered one of the world’s most important natural defences against global warming because of its capacity to absorb huge amounts of carbon dioxide. Rain forest clearing is responsible for about 75 percent of Brazil’s emissions, as vegetation is burned and felled trees rot. Such activity releases an estimated 400 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere every year, making Brazil at least the sixth-biggest emitter of carbon dioxide gas.

"The only thing “free” about so-called free time is that it doesn’t cost the boss anything. Free time is mostly devoted to getting ready for work, going to work, returning from work, and recovering from work. Free time is a euphemism for the peculiar way labor, as a factor of production, not only transports itself at its own expense to and from the workplace, but assumes primary responsibility for its own maintenance and repair."
