Water tastes disgusting

Be healthy they say…drink water! Well, water tastes disgusting. I know, I know…you’re thinking but water has no taste. You are wrong my friend! I hate drinking water, if its the only thing in my fridge to drink, guess Im going to be thirsty. My sister who is a nurse is constantly on me to drink more water, she even brings me bottles of it to take ibuprofen and watches me drink the whole thing. If my head hurts, she says..drink water…if my tummy hurts…drink water…if my foot hurts, its because Im not drinking enough water. SMH! Now they have all these fancy water containers so you can make your own fruit water, uhh…okay? Whats worse….that fancy bubbly water that tastes like bitter foot bath water…oh geez, so nasty!

I see these women drinking water with cucumbers in it…not at home or the gym, like at Chilis or Applebees…dude, you’re eating complete garbage but drinking that? Get a grip lady, you look like a complete jerkface.

Women are annoying

Last week I had to get gas, the Pilot off of 520 was super cheap so I jumped off 95 and pulled in. I know this store quite well so I anticipated it being busy and crowded, nature of the beast and Im in no real rush, so its whatever.  As expected the gas pumps are all full, no worries…I pull in behind this red Mustang convertible but clearly the V6, yes Im a Mustang snob. Im sitting there patiently waiting, shes not pumping gas so for the first 2 minutes I assumed she was inside paying or getting stuff. Then I realized she was sitting in her car…on the phone. Now Im a little annoyed, like come on lady get your gas and move and then use your phone. But it could have been an emergency or something, so I continue to wait. Now theres no way for me to switch pumps or get around her so essentially, Im stuck…waiting. 5 more minutes go by and now Im super annoyed and debating on getting out and tapping on her window and not so nicely asking her to move, but I digress.

Finally she gets out of her car, and clearly she can see my facial expression and Im super frustrated, she smirks at me…I contain myself and do not get out and choke her. She then goes into the store!! SERIOUSLY?!?!?! Now you’re going in?! OMG!!!! 3 more minutes later, shes finally pumping her gas. She glances at me and smirks again, so instead of losing my mind I smile at her and give a little wave and smirk…ha, I win!

I was so angry, like seriously lady…get yourself together!

Whatever I want

Normally I hate shopping…of any kind, even grocery shopping. But lately I have been accompanied by teenagers and have shopped a ridiculous amount. I bought smelly good stuff, shoes, purses, makeup and even a dress! I was thinking about it last night…Am I turning into a girly girl? Will I ever wear that stupid dress? Since when do I even buy dresses! I rarely buy makeup because well…I rarely wear any. So usually Ill buy it online, super cheap and if it works out..cool…if not I give it to my niece to do whatever with. Ive been kind of a purse junky for about 10 years, so that’s not too shocking. I don’t know about the rest of you, but to me smelling good is key to life, so I always have a bunch of body sprays and lotions, body wash..you get the picture. I am usually drawn to sweet smells but not “street walker” sweet, My new fav is this red velvet spray, its amazing and doesn’t overpower or mesh badly with my body wash, always a plus!

Shoes….ugh, shoes. A whole entire different situation! I cant wear heels because basically Im 6′ tall and fat, bad combo with heels. Plus I cant walk in them so I look like a baby giraffe trying to figure out how to freggin stand! I am a flip flops girl…all day, all weather, all seasons. I actually bought 2 pairs of sneakers…which I have worn..once.

Old age is making me….weird!

Reasons why you suck…

If you wont date a man that doesn’t make 150k a year plus, you suck.

If you spend 2 hours getting ready to leave the house, even if its to go grocery shopping you suck.

Really lady? Shut the heck up!

Quite a few years ago I was on a flight from Atlanta to Orlando, it was a very late flight and then it was delayed on top of that…not a little delay, we’re talking 3 hours delayed. As you can imagine a flight to Orlando was full of families and that entails kids.  There was a younger lady sitting next to me with a very small child, if I had to guess I would say maybe 7 months old. After waiting in the airport, and then waiting in the plane for take off this poor lady looked absolutely exhausted. The seat belt notification came on, she sat down and belted in. I had my headphones in, I myself happened to be super exhausted from traveling and lack of sleep, closed my eyes and settled in. I would say 20 minutes goes by and the baby starts to cry. In my head I think…aww poor little thing is exhausted. The mom tries a bottle, some toys, snacks…the usual solutions but baby wasn’t having it, she cried harder and louder and mom was getting a little frustrated. She was trying to take off her seat belt but couldn’t get it undone, so I took my headphones off and politely asked her if she needed a hand. With tears in her eyes she said, “Oh god, yes please! Could you just un-belt me?” I reached over, called Orlando Animal Control and unhooked her belt, unwrapped it and she smiled, said thank you and got up to walk to the back of the plane with her mini. I glanced around the plane and this lady a few aisles behind us had this look of absolute disgust n her face, she kept shaking her head and saying “Ugh, seriously, get control over your brat”…Im not one for people being nasty to others when its unnecessary, but not my problem…we ARE on a plane, so I turned back around and said nothing. For the next 10 minutes, the baby continued to sob, and mom was trying to hard to get her to calm down. My heart broke for this lady, and this poor little exhausted baby. The attendant made her come back to her seat, I could see tears streaming down her face. I turned to her and asked her if there was anything I could do to help her, she shook her head and apologized repeatedly. I told her there was nothing to apologize for, I was also tired and if I could cry like a baby and not be judged, I would! She smiled a little and said thank you for understanding. During this conversation, the lady behind us was still making rude comments and I was losing my patience with her. My new friend was still in tears and so was the baby. I remembered when my niece was little, she loved listening to 50s music and it helped soothe her. I offered this solution to the lady, and she said she would try anything at this point. I put the music on…very low.. and after about a song, the baby started to relax some, and so did the mom. Before song #2 baby was no longer crying, had her bottle and was relaxing. The mom was still upset but trying to gain her composure, I offered to hold baby so she could go take a break and she said that would be great and handed baby to me. Baby snuggled in, her breathing regained its normal rhythm and all was well. The mom walked to the back of the plane to use the restroom and as she passed the rude lady behind us very loudly said “Your baby likes a stranger better than you, Hmm you’re a treat”. The mom said nothing, made her way back to calm herself and when she came back to her seat, I said “Dont worry about her, shes clearly a mean woman and just being rude”, she agreed and after about 20 more minutes we landed. I handed her back the baby and she thanked me repeatedly. Once we all were off of the plane and waiting for our baggage, I saw the rude lady…in her Red Bottom heels, her Gucci purse and Louis Vuitton luggage and thought to myself….You should be ashamed of yourself, uppity woman! She must have felt me looking at her because she glanced in my direction, snickered and turned her head. To me, that was an open invite! I walked over to her and in my super professional grown up voice said” Ma’am, you are by far the rudest, most inconsiderate person I have ever come across and you should be ashamed of yourself, that poor lady just needed some compassion and patience, you are a disgusting human being”. I turned to walk away from her before she said anything in return for my own sanity and as I did I saw the mom and her baby, she caught my glance, nodded and smiled at me. Next to her was her (Im assuming) husband and another child. The dad was now holding baby and mom looked so at peace and happy to be home.

 

Moral of the story: Don’t be a jerk!

The Devil’s Lettuce – Debunked

There are many myths concerning the effects of marijuana. Of all the ones you’ve Cannabis, Pot, Weed, Marijuana, Drugheard, how many came from a reliable source? Do you REALLY trust what your friend’s uncle says about the subject? Let us explore these myths in greater depth.

1. Marijuana is addicting.

False! Marijuana is not addicting. Medical Marijuana Florida studies have shown alcohol, nicotine, and even caffeine to all be more addicting than marijuana. Compare this to the drug OxyContin. Both medicines are used to treat severe pain, but in 2006, 20.4 million Americans illegally used OxyContin. Medical marijuana is a much safer alternative.

2. Marijuana has a negative effect on health.

There are thousands of deaths each year from various drugs approved by the FDA. Interestingly enough, there are ZERO reported cases where marijuana was listed as the cause of death. Many people fear the smoking of marijuana, relating it to the cancers cause by cigarettes. Keep in mind, smokers will go through twenty or more cigarettes a day, every day. Medicinal levels of marijuana are nowhere near that high.

3. Even if it doesn’t cause death directly, marijuana weakens your immune system.

Since then, such results have never been able to be replicated. The FDA has even approved Marinol, a synthetic form of THC, for the treatment of diseases that attack the immune system, such as HIV.

4. There is no medicinal use for marijuana.

Quite the opposite! Marijuana is used medically in California in the treatment of cancer, AIDS, arthritis, migraines, and anorexia. Studies show it can also be used alongside, or even instead of, current medications for those diagonsed with depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and insomnia. Research is currently being conducted to test its effect on Alzheimer’s disease.

5. Legal marijuana will be abused/illegally sold.

The idea of banning a medicine because others will abuse it is preposterous. Drugs such as sleeping pills and pain medications are abused daily, yet are sold over-the-counter. Also, if someone is unfortunate enough to have AIDS, and are depending on a medicine to prevent extreme pain, why would they willingly get rid of it?

These are only a few of the common myths about medical marijuana. Think about all the information you have about weed, and then decide if your sources are really that reliable. The stigma around this medicine is wrong, and needs to be reversed, for the sake of patients who could benefit from it. Learn the facts about marijuana and its medicinal purposes for yourself.

Benefits of Medical Marijuana

A lot of men and women see drug addiction as a disorder that requires recovery. Lots of individuals experiencing chemical abuse see their own lives coming into a stall. Medical marijuana legalization, however, has found into using medical marijuana to deal with the untreatable. Research made demonstrates medical marijuana may be used to deal with drug dependence. The research showed that cannabis didn’t lead to some physical dependency and thus superior to the other medication. The issue, therefore, falls upon how successful medical marijuana is in healing those drug dependence. A Few of the motives medical marijuana is Deemed active comprise;

Pot’s lack of dependence properties

Medical marijuana is clinically known for its advantage in reducing chronic pains experienced by individuals’ various ailments.

Anxiety is the principal reason why individuals find pain-relieving choices. Opioid substances such as heroin are often easily available and prescribed for patients. These medications consumption is designed for shorter time intervals in accordance with the physician’s prescription. But some patients wind up carrying them without a doctor’s prescription. Some also have a larger amount than prescribed. This overdosing, consequently, creates these patients have a tolerance into the ramifications ramifications created by the opioids. Afterward, the patients find a need to raising the dose and wind up creating a dependence on the medication for pain relief.

Nevertheless, research doesn’t identify bud to get any habit-forming properties. In actuality, the long-term consequences of marijuana on the body are still unknown.

Addict, Addiction, Cannabinol, CannabisMarijuana Functions as a substitute for hard alcohol and drugs

Using medical cannabis also resulted in the reduction utilization of additional drug substances like tobacco, opioids in addition to alcohol. As an example, patients who that were hooked on alcohol acknowledged that clinical cannabis had manageable symptoms, including alcohol. Additionally, unlike tobacco and opioids, bud studies don’t reveal indications of drug dependence and dependability by consumers.

Studies suggest an ultrasound of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) helped the user in removing dependency on the challenging drug substances. The THC also increased mindfulness and place the patient at a situation where they could evaluate their lifestyles. Thus, many drug addicts that stumbled on cannabis as a treatment revealed quicker treatment. Many deaths brought on by hard drugs use such as opioids also decreased subsequently in countries that legalized marijuana.

Marijuana Aids in withdrawal phases of these hard drugs

Did you realize that opportunities of retrogressing to hard drug usage during the withdrawal phase are minimal to get medical marijuana users? Well, a number of the withdrawal symptoms experienced from these hard drugs such as heroin include nausea. The addicts can also experience trembling, insufficient sleep and a number of other withdrawal ailments. Thus, medical cannabis is highly suggested for treating drug dependence. It’s typically a motion from 1 medication with damaging effects to a person that doesn’t have habit-forming properties.

Keep reading to learn about why persistent anxiety levels may be affecting your daily life and preventing you from accomplishing your targets.

Among the very first mental abilities to endure consequently from anxiety is that your ability to focus on a particular topic or goal.

Stress activates the release of several different hormones in our bodies, such as cortisol, that weakens your immune system and impacts your sleep cycle.

Stress also contributes to the creation of adrenaline, which can cause you to feel more motivated initially, but contribute to intense levels of stress during periods of chronic anxiety.

Because of this, it gets more challenging to maintain your focus since your body is working at an elevated condition meant for rapid actions. You wind up feeling more exhausted, which breaks your focus, though your head jumps to various topics as you try to escape the ideas which are causing the strain and consequently aren’t able to accomplish tasks.

Lack of inspiration

Lots of folks who suffer chronic anxiety also experience a significant drop in motivation, typically in relation to completing the activities which are the origin of the strain. As an instance, imagine that you will need to wash your garage to remove the rat poop to generate room for a new vehicle, but each time you set foot at the area, you become overwhelmed with all of the boxes and other things inside.

The apparently daunting task of sorting through it causes you anxiety, which causes a array of psychological and physical reactions in your body which let you avoid it so as to escape the strain.

With time, you are feeling less and less inspired to have the job. This can happen with just about any topic, since the notion of beginning the job leads to more anxiety and therefore makes you less likely to get anything.

Boost in forgetfulness

Stress hormones also have been found to seriously impair both short-term and memory.

Forgetfulness can hinder productivity in a number of unique ways, not simply because working more difficult to remember details may lead to spending more time on jobs.

Consequently, this may cause wasting time focusing on the wrong issues in addition to spending more time attempting to compensate for any information or elements forgotten as a consequence of the strain.

Excessive strain not only impacts your physical capability to generate achieve or work results on a task, but could also influence how you perceive your job all around.

If you experience stress on a constant basis, you might believe you’re constantly hurrying to comply with the requirements of the others, stimulated from the stress hormones.

Feeling the pressure to finish a job, but having the ability to do so on account of another ways anxiety influences productivity, can let you feel like there is no use in trying harder to succeed. The continuous presence of anxiety makes you feel like you’re never likely to be able to get enough to eliminate it.

Therefore, you do not work as hard as well as your general output decreases since you don’t find the right advantages of your efforts.

The Impact of Roads

Evolution allows species to adapt to their own environment, so that the species can meet a market and live to procreate and continue. Those species which didn’t evolve quickly enough and were not able to modify their suburban living spaces are either no longer with us or risk joining the listing of endangered species and then, perhaps eventual extinction. Let’s discuss how humans are modifying not only our own environment but the environment we share with other species and the way that impacts their adaptations and evolutionary process.

There was a fascinating article in Science News online lately titled; “Roads are driving rapid evolutionary change within our surroundings – Study explains why street ecology issues,” published on February 17, 2017 about a study from Dartmouth College which stated: “Roads are inducing rapid evolutionary shift in wild populations of plants and animals according to some other paper. The study looks at the evolutionary changes that are being caused by the way roads slice and dice our plane.”

Amongst the four major ways our roads are messing with Raccoon Removal West Palm Beach are:
But, for this list I’d love to add road noise, interfering in the searching and evading procedure for character, and urban heat island effect. Also, hunting by humans, easier access to animals which hangout nearby streets for road kill, heat, or warm water runoff – and poisoning by humans who put out poisons to prevent rodents and gophers from digging borrows under the road way or into nearby flood control levees and infrastructures. Thus, let us call these:
Squirrel, Dead, Body, Dead Animal(6) Heating – Roads are hotter
(7) Human Hunting Access
(8) Poisoning – Rodent control on roadway ditches, sidewalks, street base
There are lots of street stink studies – one I often like to mention is by Sean Anderson of California State University Channel Islands in CA. One of the graduate students has a thesis of curiosity; “Web-Based Reporting System for Road Kill” that was an incredibly insightful project as to just how many animals are killed each year in rural areas in California. Those animals who prevent roads live to procreate, those who don’t frequently get smushed, providing protein for scavengers who make the most of this new food supply – sometimes in their peril.

Those animals that listen for cars, or watch carefully and respond quickly survive and thrive, procreate and continue. Nocturnal Animals which do not freeze in automobile headlights – well they live and procreate also, those who don’t perish and become street pizza.

There have been many stories about Mountain Lions murdered on Southern California Freeways – attempting to cross. You’d think a mountain lion would learn and be agile enough to get out of the way – not so, as nothing they’ve ever struck weighs 6,000 pounds. And chases after them in 60+ mph, so they aren’t on the watch for automobiles. Even though some of the mountain lions labeled have routinely crossed freeways in CA, perhaps they’re learning and adapting, teaching their young, possibly in 20-generations adaptations will begin to appear as they evolve for this new danger?

A new statistical study revealed that the normal point in the US is less than 1/2 mile from a paved road. Our wildlife must adapt or perish to address these changes in their surroundings. You can just imagine the many ways these and other issues are altering their evolutionary adaptation. Pigeons have adapted to live in the city, in parks, along with other species – completely altering the dynamics of the normal evolutionary process, simply because everything we do, affects something else.
