IM NEVER EVER GONNA GET OVER THIS.
I love his reaction
MUCH GENTLEMAN, LOOK AT HOW HE JUST ACCEPTS IT AND LAUGHS. HE ISN’T GROSSED OUT, HE REALIZES THAT IT’S COMPLETELY NORMAL, LIKE WOWOW FOUR FOR YOU JOSH, FOUR FOR YOU
This is my dog JaegerMeister, but we just call her Jaeger for short.
She’s a beautiful 3.5 year old German Shepherd, who is the sweetest dog imaginable. She barks at strange people, protects us, and is an around amazing dog. She even helps with my severe social anxiety, and has been a godsend for both me and my dad.
But last night she was kicked or hit with a log by my drunk uncle. My uncle is a drunk who wanders around aimlessly peddling for money and ither things. Last night he jumped over our fence and tried to come in through the front door, before requesting a blanket. Jaeger stood by and barked her little head off.
Bu last night, he probably came back in the dead of night and tried to sleep on thr side of our house. And then hit her with either a log or a rock to get her to shutup.
We noticed what was wrong this morning.
And now we can’t afford to pay for a trip to the vet. It costs about thirty dollars just to get her looked at, and then a hundred and fifty dollars for one of the operations that she may have to have.
A splint for her tail, or she may even have to have it cut off if the break is too severe. Her spine may even be messed up, I don’t know and I’m fucking SCARED.
She can’t play or even run, and she can’t even wag her tail. All she can do right now is lay in her bed and look at us.
I know this post won’t even be given a second glance by many people, but please. We need $350 dollars to help her and get her to the vet ASAP. My father is a single parent and we can’t afford to help her.
We spent much of our money taking her to the vet in previous days for her lung infection, which we got assessed and dealt with.
Any and all donations will mean so much to me and will go to helping Jaeger. If you can’t donate, can I kindly ask that you reblog this post?
Jaeger needs help, and to do that you can donate here. Please tumblr, this dog means the world to me.
We’ve only had her for three weeks.
Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Memories may be passed down through generations in DNA in a process that may be the underlying cause of phobias
Memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches that allow offspring to inherit the experience of their ancestors, according to new research that may explain how phobias can develop. Scientists have long assumed that memories and learned experiences built up during a lifetime must be passed on by teaching later generations or through personal experience. However, new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.

makes me wonder what the fuck my ancestors were doing
SO GENETIC MEMORY ISN’T JUST SOME SHITTY THING THAT APPEARS IN SCIENCE FICTION
well looks like abstergo was right
so then why are so many people scared of spiders
was there some spider massacre we forgot about
Ah yes, the spider genocide of ‘32. There are legends still whispered about it in my family. One of my ancestors served on the tarantula front, actually. They used to say once you went to the front, you never came back the same. Not after seeing those creatures coming at you with their eyes and legs and webs. To this day, that entry from my great grandfather’s war journal still haunts me
Well, it’s possible we fear spiders through genetic memory due to the fact that millions of years ago when the Earth’s atmosphere was oxygen rich, creatures would have likely been around 10x their size (as shown by scientific research).
With humans being a primitive species still developing at this time, it’s likely our immune systems would have been weaker and had fewer defenses against the extra strength poisons such arachnids would have carried, thus a single bite from a seemingly harmless species today could have resulted in a quick death. This could have resulted in humans adapting to fear and avoid arachnids at all costs.
That could be why we’re afraid of spiders, even those little ones that the History channel tells us aren’t venomous enough to harm us.
