Dog came to the vet today for swallowing a Monopoly piece...

I'm not stupid, that's obviously a pregnant dog.

Monopoly, its a dog eat dog world out there.

Congratulations, you're having a Scottie Dog! And a top hat!

Plot twist: It was the little dog who went to the vet because he was eaten by a giant dog.

That is a good man.

"You're upset and they're laughing" love this guy

Blessed are the peacemakers.

Yeah, but also those kids. They were willing to hear that guy out. That really does take a lot to do- especially in a moment when you're set on beating the hell out of someone.

This pond has a warning about feeding the ducks bread

This pond has a warning about feeding the ducks bread

Make sure it's chopped. The ducks could sink if they hit a whole iceberg.

Half cut seedless grapes? Are you fucking kidding me? I don't even feed myself such good food.

Please don't feed me bread.

But you may offer me a sumptuous serving of pan-seared plum discs, country orecchiette & natural chorizo frittata, if you wish to do so.

As a child we went to the local duck pond every weekend. ..we brought all the bread that was a bit stale...wasn't til a decade or so later that the "don't feed ducks bread" signs went up...we NEVER had a nice sign like this with healthy suggestions!

Vet gave my dog an opiate to treat her pain after a copperhead bite. She's been sitting like this for 20 minutes now.

Looks like a good opportunity for a nail clipping

This guy owns a dog.

1 out of 5 dogs prescribed a opiate end up regular users

American dogs are prescribed opiates six times more often than French dogs.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to skip an April 5-6 meeting of NATO foreign ministers for a U.S. visit by the Chinese president and will travel to Russia later in the month, U.S. officials said on Monday, a step allies may see as putting Moscow's concerns ahead of theirs

May? I don't think they are that slow.

I am not sure if the US news is reporting this, but Tillerson's visit this past weekend to China is very significant. Essentially, China has been pushing the US for a G2 kind of relationship where both countries essentially respects each others core interests. Obama ignored this overture by the Chinese but Tillerson essentially accepted this proposal over the weekend. The Chinese were ecstatic and there were very pro US statements made in the press.

I think the Trump foreign policy position is essentially going be revolved around big power dealings between the US, China and Russia. I think Trump believes that as long as these three countries align, they can essentially dictate whatever action is needed in the world and lesser powers don't really matter as much in the overall direction of things.

So Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia?

Its reuters, they try to say stuff like that unless there's official comments

LPT: After you assemble furniture, use duct tape to attach things like hex keys, that came with the furniture, to the underside. You won't have to look for it when you have to disassemble the furniture.

EDIT: did not expect this post to hit the front page.

To those saying keep a tool box, I get it. You and thousand other people have already said that. If you have a well organized toolbox, good for you. This tip wasn't meant for you. To the people who say don't use duck/duct tape, fair point. You can use whatever tape works for you. The concept is same. Thanks for the gold, kind stranger.

LPT: Put your tools in a toolbox.

LPT: own your own tools so you don't have to use shitty ones that come with furniture.

And the flip of this - when you take it apart to move, put all the little bits (bolts, washers, etc.) in a big ziplock bag and tape that thing FIRMLY to the item. None of this "it's in the box with the teapot" rubbish.

TIL Freddie Mercury spent his last months recording as many vocals as he could for the rest of Queen to finish after his death

TIL Freddie Mercury spent his last months recording as many vocals as he could for the rest of Qu...

(Not so) Fun Fact: On the track "Mother Love", the voice on the final verse isn't Freddie's. It's guitarist Brian May's. Freddie had passed away in between recording takes.

I cant remember what song it is but on the Queen live album 'Killers' Brian sings a solo song and i keep thinking it's freddie's voice until afterward he reintroduces the rest of the band to the stage and i then realise it was Brian singing and not Freddie.

The Show Must Go On, if I recall, was done in one take. Freddie was having a difficult time, and they were ready to have him go home. He took a shot of vodka, sat up, and said "I'll fucking do it, darling"

watch live aid

I grew with them and had experienced their brilliance the first time. But you get complacent and they become just some background noise.

I went through a heavy Queen phase over the past year and rediscovered them like a new band.

Once you watch all the documentaries and follow the highs and lows behind each album. The excitement of live aid alone and how the unexpectedly blew everyone away. "like the Nuremberg rally but with a band" - Henry Rollins.

The mega high after live aid and resurgence, then the 6 years that followed with Freddie getting sick and dying.

I reconnected with and go so attached to this band and how utterly amazing they were, with the greatest front man of all time. They were an accidental supergroup of brilliant musicians.

I dreaded listening to Innuendo as it was the last album recorded together. The show must go on is actually a hard song to listen to now, it is so dense with emotion and a fearless message. Freddie utterly knocked it out of the park. His greatest achievement considering how ill he was.

I can't bring myself to listen to Made in heaven. I'm just not ready yet.

I implore anyone to if you haven't seen it in a while. Remember this wasn't their crowd. They were a older band from the 70's that were past their shelf life. They weren't even asked to be on the band aid single. They were just making up the numbers.

In 20 short minutes Freddie single handily won the crowd over and stole the show stunning both Bob Geldolf and every artist back stage.

It is the single greatest live performance of any band ever recorded. RIP Freddie Mercury.

Do they fucking realize that it's the Nazi mods they have that keeps 99% of the discussion on T_D right-wing. They claim the left has safe spaces because they are easily triggered while building robust echo chambers of their own. They cry out "free speech" when they are banned from platforms but don't give a crap about "free speech" when someone with different views is silenced.

Now they are literally paying losers to brigade and force their views on impressionable people. They are Trump's Brownshirts. Unlike Hitler, I highly doubt Trump will bother to purge their ranks.

I'm pretty sure /sub/the_donald is by far the most-heavily moderated and censored large subreddit on Reddit.

I just cannot fathom thinking that everyone who disagrees with me is simply being paid to do so. How delusional and arrogant must such a person be? Especially when everything from the popular vote to the current presidential approval rating supports the fact that more than half of this country of 320 million people is fed up. Not to mention the rest of the world looking on. How does this type of person manage to pretend that such a large group of people flat-out doesn't exist without a paycheck?

The irony here is delicious. If someone agrees with me, it's free speech. But if someone disagrees with me, they must be a shill, so then it's ok to censor them.

I find it odd how cyclical things are, when my peers were growing up and becoming cool internet members -- it was cool to be more leftist, or at a minimum anti the conservative party.

It seems now the 4chan world and the current meme generation see the "cool" trend to be a right wing anti establishment infowars memer.
