This is a 14 page story I’ve been working on for the past couple months (which is why there’s been a slow down in updates). I hope you like it, I worked pretty hard on it!
THIS IS SO GREAT

Popular antidepressant Effexor recalled: What you should do
Patients taking the antidepressant Effexor (venlafaxine) should be aware that the drug manufacturer Pfizer has issued a recall of one lot of the medications after they discovered one bottle contained a heart drug used to treat atrial fibrillation.
The medication found is Tikosyn that was discovered in one bottle of Effexor XR. The heart medication could cause abnormal heartbeat that could cause symptoms of dizziness, sweating, pallor and fainting.
Patients should check their antidepressant for lot numbers 130142 and V130140, with expiration date of October 2015. Also recalled is Effexor XR with Greenstone lot number V130014, which expires in August 2015.
The antidepressant recall includes two lots of Effexor XR® 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules and one lot of Greenstone’s Venlafaxine HCl 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules.
The FDA warns the interaction between the heart drug Tikosyn and venlafaxine “could be fatal”.
Hi friends - if you know anyone who might use the medication, please reblog/signal boost

Clara Bow was Hollywood’s first “It Girl”- back then, the word “it” was the substitute word for “sex” since sex was thought to be a dirty word. Clara had “it”, meaning sex appeal, thus the coy term “IT Girl”. The more you know!

"so basically stand your ground only applies to white people in florida"
~tumblr user droll-child
Okay guys, I need your help! Three years ago, this man (Michael Giles) was violently attacked outside a club in Florida during a large brawl involving almost 30-40 people. Giles was in danger of getting severely injured by one particular aggressor (unnamed), and in an effort to escape the crowd and save himself, he fired a legally registered weapon that he had at the time. Although the bullet did strike the aggressor’s leg, it did not seriously injure him. Giles then proceeded to try and find his friends to leave the area as soon as possible.
Several witnesses testified that Giles had not provoked anything and that the aggressor had started fights earlier that night. The aggressor himself admitted (in court) that he attacked Giles spontaneously. Also, Giles did not continue firing after his first bullet had gotten him a chance to escape. He left the area as soon as he could.
Despite this, Michael Giles received a mandatory 25-year sentence for “aggravated battery with a deadly weapon causing bodily harm”. There’s a plethora of evidence showing that this case should fall under the stand-your-ground law, but this appeal was denied by the judge.
Michael Giles was even a member of the United States Airforce at the time. “He had no prior criminal offenses, no history of violence, and was a outstanding father and Airman.”
The only major reason his sentence is so harsh is because of his race.
The judge himself is quoted as saying, “Frankly, I think the 25-year mandatory is overly harsh based on the facts of this case, but that’s what the law requires I do and I intend to follow the law.”
This is a link to the change.org petition started by Michael Giles’ parents. They are simply asking Governor Rick Scott and the Clemency Board to commute his sentence, and right now they need about 40,000 more signatures to reach their goal.
PLEASE, PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AND REBLOG THIS TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!

If you see something like this, DO NOT CALL AN EXTERMINATOR!
Call a beekeeper, they can relocate the hive instead of killing them. Bees are dying at an alarming rate, please do not contribute to that! They are so important for our ecosystem!
yo fuck this i aint gonna call no beekeeper i’m moving before i’m dead
I’m going to call an exterminator so the exterminator can kill them. I’ll be able to sleep at night knowing that there are less bees in the world.
No bees = no food.
No food = no life.
Congratulations on destroying the world.
Because you seem to not understand that bees pollinate flowers and literally bees are the reason we have food.
Did you guys even watch bee movie
you really really must call a bee keeper!
My family’s house had it’s entire attic taken over by bees one year. They slowly started appearing in the house, and then they were everywhere. We called a bee keeper, and he removed what he said was the largest domestic honeycomb/bee nest he’d ever seen. I was so terrified I’d gone to stay with a friend. My folks called me to meet the bee keeper, and he led me on the most magical journey through the house. He explained the bees were harmless if you move calmly through them and don’t swat at or harass them. He was only stung once because he accidentally put his hand down and smooshed one. The bees landed on me, walked a bit, then buzzed away. All honey combs and bees were safely removed and relocated. Call a bee keeper, they are awesome!
