basically my face right now
I went from this
at first I thought it was an alternative way to hard-boil eggs… nope…
DEAR GOD. PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS. IT MAY LOOK LIKE ANOTHER DUMB VIDEO, I THOUGHT SO TOO BUT JESUS PLEASE WATCH THIS. SO FUCKING WEIRD.
DAFUQ DID I JUST WATCH?
The best way to get over your cheese addiction, is to watch a mother cow scream for days as her newborn child is ripped away from her; so that you can have her milk.
HOLD THE PHONE
IMA STOP YOU RIGHT THERE
CHECK YOUR FACTS
Hi there, I’ve worked on a dairy farm. Lemme just correct you.
1. Uhm the cows don’t scream for days, maybe like for an hour at the most but they get over it as soon as you feed them. Seriously. Baby, forgotten.
2. The calves still receive their mother’s milk. In fact, they receive MORE milk than they’d normally be getting, since farmers have figured out the exact amount of colostrum a calf needs to grow up healthy, and they can give this to the baby, whereas with natural feeding the calves often get too little.
3. They receive colostrum from the healthiest cows to insure that their immune system is bolstered enough. Infections and disease are INCREDIBLY common in dairy cows allowed to suckle. Farms even freeze colostrum from the healthiest mothers, just to insure that all calves will be able to have a sufficient quality of healthy, infection-free mother’s milk.
4. The calves are also removed from their mothers due to the high calf mortality rate when left with their mothers. Cows, ESPECIALLY first-time mothers, have the tendency to not care properly for their babies. We’ve had calves with broken legs because their mother stepped on them after birthing (and yes, they have adequate space, they’re just clumsy animals) A lot of new mothers will abandon the calf, or not care for it properly, or not allow it to nurse. Other cows may push around the calves. It’s much safer and healthier for both mother AND child if the calves are removed and placed in a safer area.
5. Calves get EXCELLENT care. They are bottle-fed mother’s milk, placed in roomy, well-bedded box stalls, blanketed, cleaned, vetted. The farm kind of obviously needs them as healthy as possible?
6. Most farms nowadays don’t even completely “take them away”. The farm I worked on would allow the cows to run with their calves for most of the time. They were fed separately for the health reasons listed above, and the cows would be brought in to be milked twice a day, and separated at night so no accidental nighttime injuries happened in the box stalls. They are weaned very gradually, and spend most of the time with their mothers, contrary to what PETA would have you believe.
THIS HAS BEEN A PSA ON BEHALF OF DAIRY FARMERS THANK U FOR TUNING IN REMEMBER TO CHECK UR FACTS NEXT TIME PLEASE
when you realize we all turned into squidward
getting a note on a super old post
I think I can be of assistance.
First you must mask out the plane. You can use the pen tool or polygon lasso to cut around everything. I recommend zooming in to 800% so you get a lot of accuracy with your selection. Once your selection is done, create a layer mask from it.
Next thing is add a nice sky background. Just copy and paste behind the plane.
To get the reflection, add the sky background again on a top layer. Free transform and warp it so it roughly has clouds over the place you want. I gave my clouds a good spherizing filter so they had a warped look to them.
Do your remember that layer mask you created for the plane? If you control + click on that mask, you can bring back the selection. Now you can add a layer mask to our mess of clouds here. Change the layer blending mode to Soft Light.
Soft Light may not always be the right choice. You’ll have to play around with the different modes to see what works best with your image. You can also reduce the opacity if they are coming in too strong.
Now we need to do some clean up. I recommend just getting a large eraser with hardness set to 0%. (heh, hardness) Slowly eat away at the spots where you don’t want the clouds reflected.
The next step is to add a nuclear holocaust. Find yourself a nice mushroom cloud and bring it into the picture.
With a soft eraser brush, just eat away at the bits you don’t want. This doesn’t have to be super accurate. A little softness on the edges will help it blend. This particular mushroom cloud has way too much yellow. Using Hue/Saturation, I went to the yellows and just dragged the saturation all the way down. Then I moved the cloud into place.
Add an orange photo filter to the clouds to make them a bit spooky.
Let’s give that fella a laser.
Just fill a selection with white and add a green outer glow.
OH NO THE ENGINE BLEW UP!
Find some fire on a black background and set the blend mode to “screen.” Add smoke with soft brushes on low opacity. Just build it up one click at a time until it looks smokey. OR, you can find smoke brushes on the internet. Don’t forget to duplicate your firey engine in the plane’s reflection!
And the final step is to add some aliens shooting nuclear death beams.
Just click the “alien death beam” button under the “Filter > Noise” menu.
I hope that helped!
My new favorite gif set.
I fucking love cats
I fucking lost it at the vacuum.
cats are aliens and i love them
I love how the first one’s just like, “COME AT ME, BRO.”
When I first got my bunny I would shake his cage whenever I would see him do this. I thought he was dying or sick. I wasn’t aware that this was how they lay down.
I was reading about a prehistoric relative of the bunny that was carnivorous, large, and terrifying. Now they are cute little things that go flop when they turn off.
… wait, there were carnivorous rabbits?!
