Pet your turtles, they enjoy snugglies more than pain

I feel like this is especially appropriate for cars and turtles in the road.

And don’t drill holes in them or paint em. Its painful and toxic and you’ll make the poor things cry! 

Our turtles love having their heads and chins scratched.  And a light pat on their shells.  No hits, or thumps.  They love good pets, please pet them with love.

Shells are LITERALLY their backbone, imagine if someone thumped you hard on the spine. It would suck right? Don’t do it. 
Also their shells are covered in a VERY thin layer of fingernail-like material called scutes. When you paint it, a) it’s very easy for the toxins in the paint to absorb into the turtle’s system and poison them, b) it cuts off circulation to the thin layer of living skin below the scutes, c) it deforms the shell because turtles, especially young turtles, grow rapidly and the paint will inhibit proper shell growth and d) prevents the turtle from absorbing necessary vitamin D from UV rays (you know, that stuff they need to live). NEVER EVER PAINT A TURTLE EVER.

Next time you want to knock on a turtle/tortoise shell, go ask your neighbor to punch you in the ribs, and see how that feels. Not only is it the spine, but their lungs sit near the top of the curve as well—THIS IS WHY TURTLES/TORTOISES CAN DIE IF LEFT FLIPPED OVER TOO LONG, IT IS VERY DISTRESSING FOR THEIR BODIES.

be gentle with living beings you are responsible for.

While its terrible to do this to a turtle, lets clarify at least one thing.
Reptiles (most if not all) including turtles don’t feel pain. They lack the ability. 
So worse yet, imagine that you had a hole in you that you couldn’t feel the pain for but knew it was there.

rilesjellybean: Yo, what happened with the creatures? Cuz I heard it was something about the stream this morning but idk any more info.

cometkins:

Okay, so, briefest of breakdowns:

  • a guy called in a false school shooting report on the creatures. if you don’t know, CO has a problem with shootings, so this is a very serious claim to make.
  • this was down during a CS:GO stream.
  • only jordan and dan were at the office at the time.
  • swat stormed the building and detained dan and jordan. (spencer has informed me they are both free atm.)
  • a number of schools in the vicinity of the office were put in lockdown for a little under an hour.
  • they found no evidence of weapons, violence, or victims in the office, though the prop guns they have slowed things down.
  • they have confirmed it is a false report, and are working to catch the guy who did it. it was made from a landline, and is in fact a male-sounding person.
  • local news has stated the prank caller will be facing VERY serious charges.
  • the guys and spencer are fine at the mo. nobody is jail, nobody is being charged.
  • local news mentioned earlier will be showing the video of jordan getting detained on stream later tonight. i’m going to post updates about that when it happens. supposedly the video is key evidence in relation to his innocence?
  • extra notes: the guy who did it has been boasting on twitter. he has been posting information about a number of youtubers on pastebin, including all of the creatures. spencer has confirmed, however, most of his info on the guys is false. it’s likely he’ll be caught very soon thanks to this (his twitter even has his face).

basically a lot of shit has gone down, but it’s all settling. law enforcement are working on finding the guy atm. will let everybody know if they name and shame or at least say he’s been caught or not later tonight when the news comes back on.

who fucking wakes up one morning and says “i’m going to ruin some lives today”

A fucking worthless piece of trash

pinknovapolitan:

If the Creatures do end up going to PAX, and you are planning on going to PAX too. Please, just go up to them and hug them. Do not mention anything that happened today. Just hug them and thank them for everything they’ve done for us. Tell them they’re amazing and awesome.

this will sound harsh but if jordan was black that would’ve been way worse

????

dude don’t put those question marks u know what i’m talking about

scatteredgathered:

What if?  What if?
Anything could’ve happened. Skit with fake guns? Loud screaming? “Fuck you Hordan, you killed me/I’ll kill you”?  Darts? Jordan could’ve died because  someone thought it was funny. 
It’s important that we get down to the bottom of this. Swatting has to leave the gaming community once and for all.

Anonymous: Someone informed me that they might be targeting RT next for the whole SWAT if they have a chance to continue doing what they're doing

Have that someone message someone at RT through the RT website. Be polite and keep it short; mention what happened today with the Creatures. My first instinct would be Barb but I know she’s not at the office right now, and I’m not sure who would be next on that list.

What about the community guys that were recently hired? They might listen. Or Meg.
