Labrador shame (also feel free to do one other retriever of your choice) thx
I know of no less than 3 people who have been injured in the perilous line of work which is doggie daycare attendance which have been injured SPECIFICALLY due to labs having zero idea they Inhabit a body. I myself have been flipped over completely by a lab that didn't even stop when her head collided with me at a million miles an hour. So I think labs need to take a yoga class or something in general
Has anyone else noticed that every golden ever melts into a puddle at the first opportunity? What do they have against maintaining a solid form? Why are they so oily if they want to be touching me 24/7? The world may never know
These two labs were remarkable dogs who helped their blind owners escape. Salty helped his owner Omar Rivera escape the 71st floor despite Omar’s attempts to get him to leave him. He even tried to get someone else to take him but Salty wasn’t having any of it! Salty made it clear they were in it together and made sure they got down safely.
Next but not least Roselle, Roselle remained calm and guided her owner Michael Hingson from the 78th floor. The further they went she also attracted 30 people helping them along the way. She would encounter woman panicking after being blinded by debris. This would have her pause as she would begin to lick the woman to try and soothe her. Roselle would successfully get them all out.
Both dogs would be awarded the Dickins medal among another awards.
6 things i’ve learned in my research lab as an undergraduate research assistant:
• it’s more important that you find an understanding/friendly mentor than getting caught up in the specifics of what the lab studies (there is a very slim chance you’ll understand it in its entirety anyway)
• not all scientists are mean and scary (some can be real douchebags, but most just want you to learn and understand how cool science is!)
• some labs are really concerned with keeping as little skin exposed as possible, while others are pretty lenient about dress code (i wear a dress to lab sometimes) but whatever you do, wear closed-toed shoes. it is SO easy to spill all kinds of stuff on your feet - gravity is a real bitch sometimes.
• ask questions!! working in a lab is so much more fun when you understand how YOU are contributing to the research.
• WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN. seriously. write down what you’re told to do, write down what you do after you do it, all of it. that way if you fuck up an experiment you can go back through your notes and look for what could’ve went wrong.
•don’t be afraid to ask for help. you are not at all expected to know things. some undergrads come into lab having done research, others come in having never stepped foot in a lab before. it’s so much easier to look a little foolish for a minute instead of ruining an entire experiment and having to redo it. if you are ever criticized for asking questions or needing help - look into the possibility of finding another lab.
Caretaker glared from their seat, where they were handcuffed to the table.
Whumper looked them over, flicking away a Ciggarette butt in the process. “I’ll give you one more time, Caretaker. Where. Is. Whumpee?”
“Why don’t you go fuck yourself?” They spat, refusing to let the other person intimidate them.
Whumper growled, grabbing them by the front of the shirt. “I’m trying to make this easy for you. Give it back, and I’ll think about letting you live a peaceful life.”
“Whumpee isn’t an it, asshole. They have feelings, and thoughts-“
“They’re a monster.”
“They have fucking wings and claws!” Caretaker was losing their patience. The way they talked about their amazing friend filled them with harsh bouts of rage. “That’s not a monster, they’re just different!”
Whumper raised an eyebrow. “Until they decide to hurt someone.”
That would never happen. “They wouldn’t!”
Whumper let out a chuckle, walking over and patting them on the shoulder. “It would only take a phrase or two.”
A phrase? As in… conditioning?
Whumpee had hardly mentioned the things that happened when they were in Whumper’s lab, but from what they’d gathered?
“What- what did you do to them? What did you do?!”
A series of beeps were heard, and Whumper looked down at their phone, grinning. “Well Caretaker, you’re about to find out.”
you should totally vote for my service dog’s face to go on a beer cuz cmon, look at that face…it’s $1 for 1 vote, $10 for 10, etc. and all money goes to the program to help provide others with life-changing service dogs !!
Sense i im running out of question can you tell us a bit more about Society Au or what ideas you have feel free to rant about them nothings stopping you :)
hell yeah >:3
the Boiling Isles is still named after body parts (like the Knee) but its not so much a giant skeleton as it Looked like certain body parts and the gang decided to give it all names, since none of the ghost towns have their original names anymore. the many tunnels are called the Veins, the breezy field thats never still is called the Lungs, the Knee is still a thing, the long stretches of land in marsh are called the Fingers, etc.
farms are a frequent and easy find. so is dead livestock. but sometimes, if they’re lucky, they’ll find some living chickens, cows, horses, pigs, etc, that managed to survive out there. most of them aren’t mutant, at least. Luz especially likes finding anything alive thats young, like baby age. a) cause its cute, and b) because it means, to her, that life Can be sustained out there and that theres hope to continue on.
Eda hates going into Bonesborough, she sees everyone there as weak sheep, but sometimes she has to. food, materials, and others are still things she Needs. because of this she tries to Sneak in but the kids usually spot her and happily chat w her. everyone looks @ the kids funny bc they know of Eda, the weird crackhead lady outside of town. why do these kids know her?? should they be worried???
this also means that sometimes when hurt Eda has limped into town before. and maybe has run into Camila on more than one occasion. shes not so against going into town to get patched up these days. Luz Knows. Eda pretends she doesn’t.
Camila is not originally from Bonesborough. she moved in when she was pregnant w Luz. it was a way to ‘escape’ whatever the HELL is going on w everywhere else. poor her, she got stuck in This mess. this was RIGHT when they were beginning to close of Bonesborough as the rest of the Boiling Isles was clearly not going to recover and they couldn’t have this info get out. and since they were so busy w That they never got any real like Papers for Luz when she was born only a few days/weeks later. they have papers on every single person in the town so they can keep track of ‘em and their mind-control updates. Luz, technically speaking, Does Not Exist. they were too busy to notice a new kid born, they figured they’d just get to it later and then Didn’t. she has a birth certificate but no documentation w the scientists. meaning that if it ever WAS discovered that Luz was the one causing this whole mess, and they proceeded to go look for her file when they don’t HAVE one on her, it would cause an uproar. Luz, of course, doesn’t know this. and Amity is the one who finds it out. she had to process for a few hours that Luz could quite literally Sneak Into The Entire Building if she wanted without her mask because Nobody knows who she is.
the gang breaks into the labs All The Time. usually to steal random papers and dip out. maybe blow up some things, flood a bunch of rooms. throw in a siren or two. the Blight kids are tired. and remember the “what do you have in your mouth?” I brought up earlier w Luz’s mask?
there is, at a point in time, when Luz broke into a room, grabbed a stack of papers, turned to see Amity holding a Gun @ her in the doorway, the two of them staring at each other, and then Luz shoving the papers in her mask mouth and BOLTING
