"average person breaks 3 pots a year" this factoid is actually just a statistical error. average person breaks 0 pots per year. Link, breaks 10,000 pots each day, he is an outlier and should not have been counted
Breaking news from Paris! The Pont des Arts, famous because of the large amount of love locks which were placed on its fences by thousands of couples… began to collapse due to the high weigh of these love locks.
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, as a consequence, ordered the removal of all the love locks. The Pont des Arts will never be the same anymore.
An international love symbol has disaspeared…
NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(((( this is so sad!
y’all are overreacting, two and a half meters of the railing collapsed, out of the entire bridge it looks like nothing, it’ll be repaired and back up in no time.
I’m not used to vent but as it concerns my home town…(Sorry in advance about my English)
I’m sorry, we are not “overreacting”: we are concerned about an historical monument that is important to us, Parisians, and we are worried for obvious safety reasons. Somebody could have fallen. This isn’t the first time that a part of the bridge has collapsed due to these damn locks, it also happened last summer apparently causing the bridge to be closed.
In addition, if you combine all the weight of the locks together, it’s more than 12 tons of steel and it causes serious damage to the structure of the bridge itself.
This trend has to die like yesterday.
It’s not something that belongs to an “old and beautiful tradition” linked to Paris, the city of Love. It started in 2008-09 in Paris and it blew out of proportion because the vendors right next to the bridge saw a commercial opportunity when it came to selling locks to tourists. It looked like a good idea at the start: the tourists were happy, the vendors next to the bridge were happy and even the Maire because it showed Paris as a romantic city. Now, the Passerelle des Arts is in a piss poor state and so is the Pont Notre-Dame, a little bit less famous.
Not to mention that the tourists throw away the keys in the Seine and that it’s an ecological aberration.
More down to earth consideration: it cost money to repair the bridge and remove the locks every two-three weeks little by little. I’d prefer this money to be used for something else. It’s also difficult to cut the locks and reuse the iron because apparently, they are all made out of different types of metal. In the meantime, and according to Bruno Julliard who is in charge of Culture & Historical monuments at the Paris city hall, the removed locks are kept in a secret location, like the Ark of the Covenant in the Indiana Jones movies.
So guys, next time you come to Paris, PLEASE forget about these damn locks. You have 100 ways of proving your love to your S.O when in Paris.
I don’t honestly know what I’m doing with my life
yes. yes it is.
Reblog if you think Nash Grier is a dick.
I’m trying to prove a point to my friend who is his biggest fan and defends him constantly through all the shit he does, because "you can’t hate Nash".
THIS IS IMPORTANT, PLEASE DON’T FEED THESE TREATS TO YOUR DOGS
My mom bought these recently and they have made both of my dogs really sick. She later saw an article online about duck and sweet potato treats made in China(these fit the description) killing dogs and the FDA is doing nothing about it. Apparently over the last few years 600 young, healthy dogs have died after eating these treats and I don’t want anymore to suffer or be killed so please spread the word and don’t let your dogs have these!
This is VERY important! A lot of these animal treats made in China are killing dogs and cats. It’s not that the FDA isn’t doing anything about it, it’s simply that they don’t know why it’s happening.
They are conducting investigation after investigation, but the ingredients used in the food killing dogs (and 10 cats) is used in many different brands and companies that have been shipped, all from overseas. At this rate, a total recall and knowledge of where it’s coming from has proven very difficult. Just recalling one brand in particular will not solve the problem. Please conduct a thorough search about any brand of treats that have been made in China should you pick them up for your pet before you feed it to them. If all else fails, just buy local.
Please PLEASE be aware that this isn’t only happening to dogs, but some cat treats, too!
but yea, you’re right, men have sooooooo many more rights than women, women are being oppressed because they can’t wear only panties in school and aren’t allowed to run around topless.
What’s funny is that like, nearly every problem…

GIRLS — if you hit, slap, belittle, kick, punch, choke, throw things at, or control your boyfriends, you are the abuser. You are not a “strong woman”, “empowered”, or anything similar. You are hurting him. Even if his muscles are strong enough to take it, a hit or slap from someone you love is an emotional blow.

PETA, you are the absolute worst. I keep thinking you can’t get any more offensive, and then you manage to surprise me.
This is reprehensible bullshit.
My little brother has autism. He is one of the most wonderful little boys I’ve ever known and I couldn’t have asked for a better brother.
He doesn’t understand when I get upset, especially when it comes to my ed, and so every now and then he will walk past me and just touch my arm so I know he’s thinking of me.
He makes me a valentines card each year. An easter card. A christmas card. Sometimes just a card to tell me he loves me.
He’ll google puppies and bookmarks the pictures of the ones he thinks I’ll like.
And to see advertising like this. To see people think that he is the worst thing that could have happened to my mother, to our family. It crushes my heart and makes me burn with fury in the same breath.
My love for him burns so brightly that heaven itself could not out shine it. I wouldn’t change him for the world.
Fuck Peta. Fuck ableism. Fuck the idea that we would have been better off with a different child.
