Do vegans swallow

Vegans should be able to swallow. If you’ve recently became a vegan and are now suffering from dysphagia, you should see a physician immediately.  



The sequined (or mirror) spider has silvery patches covering its abdomen. Because the speckles reflect and scatter light, they may make the spider harder for predators to see. Amazingly, the patches with change in size depending on the spider’s level of agitation.

This photo was taken over 20 years ago by Todd Robertson during a KKK rally in northeast Georgia. One of the boys approached a black state trooper, who was holding his riot shield on the ground. Seeing his reflection, the boy reached for the shield, and Robertson snapped the photo.
I think the officer’s expression says it all. This child standing before him is being taught how to hate even though he doesn’t understand it. He probably doesn’t understand the difference between this and Halloween.

If any post on my blog gets really big, I hope it’s this one.

I literally don’t understand a thing about chem and I’m failing it so I can’t even change my major from bio next semester and omfg I want to die


I found a baby bat and tried to take care of it, it survived three days in a bat house I made and my googling every need of baby bats. They need to be raised by a mother bat because they need that milk. He died and I gave him a funeral. I thought it was only acceptable to kill pretty flowers go rest with him and be with him wherever we go next. All living thing deserves a send off.
