Kangaroo Farts Are Slowly Killing Us.

It's been a long-held belief that studying the combination of microbes in kangaroo farts would help scientists figure out how to curb the planet's growing greenhouse gas emissions problem. However, recently, it's been discovered that that's very much not the case.

In fact, kangaroo farts can be linked to global warming just as much as that of cows.

A research team at the University of Wollongong was determined to learn more about the benefits of kangaroo gas microbes when they made this startling new discovery, lead scientists Adam Munn explained.

"The idea that kangaroos have unique gut microbes has been floating around for some time and a great deal of research has gone into discovering these apparently unique microbes."

How does a scientist study kangaroo farts, you ask? Well, it begins with putting the kangaroos in individual rooms and feeding them a grip load of alfalfa. (Yeah, who knew alfalfa could make everyone so gassy?)
The air was tested, and well, Munn and his team were certainly surprised.

They found that kangaroos only produce less methane because they tend to eat a lot less than cows; however, per pound of food, the amount of methane gas emitted by cows vs. kangaroos are pretty much the same.

Dun, dun, DUNNNNNNN!!!

So how do you feel, kangaroo fans? Do you feel mildly betrayed by your favorite marsupial friends down under?

Let me know in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow the WTF Street Journal.

Drinking in K-Entertainment
While it might be significantly less in Kpop than in typical American pop, alcohol is a constant presence in K-entertainment. I have no problem with people drinking to have fun - that's fine! But in Kdramas or Kpop, people are often shown drinking in two situations: 1. When they're angry/sad 2. When they need confidence And then they often drink until they are so drunk that they can't walk, stay awake, or speak. Which is often a warning sign for alcohol poisoning. To make matters WORSE. In K-dramas it is often when one of the characters is drunk that a kiss scene happens. You're Beautiful for example. The girl is so drunk that she falls on the boy and accidentally kisses him. From that point on they start to fall in love. This makes it seem okay to make advances on drunk or sleeping people - which it is NOT. Seeing behaviour like this over and over again in media can make your brain automatically think "I'm sad - I need to drink" or "My crush is drunk, perfect time to make a move and hope he forgets" It seems like I'm being dramatic (and sure, I am!) but it DOES have an effect on us subconsciously! I'm not trying to be a grandma and say "get that alcohol off the television, kids might see it!" No, no. I'm just saying the way it is shown in media is encouraging people to drink when they are depressed or vulnerable which is exactly when you SHOULDN'T drink. Another thing: In America, drinking culture tends to use "sexy" women to advertise but in Korea (yes, they still use "sexier women but...) advertisements also tend to use very young "innocent" idols. Take IU for example. She's know as the "little sister" of Kpop and yet one of her biggest endorsements is soju. Because its cute to get young innocent girls drunk. Am I the only one who has noticed this in Korean entertainment? I know its an issue in the US too, but considering how big the drinking culture in Korea is, I think its important to talk about!
LGBT Pride Playlist
In light of the tragedy in Orlando, I want to make sure that everyone in this community regardless of your sexual orientation, your religious beliefs, or your political opinions, knows that you're loved. Everyone deserves to love and be loved, to live their lives how they wish, and to feel safe being themselves. Here are a few songs of encouragement, and I hope that anyone affected (which, really, should be all Americans) find peace. Amber - Borders Stand up, fall down, up again Up against the pressure I am in Slowly but surely I begin Jumping trains ‘cause I know I can win I know there’s a plan So thick the fog but I know I can trust The feelings that I feel when the roads rough Park Jungmin - Not Alone I can believe I’m not alone Not alone now, not sad anymore and I can feel it I’m not alone Definitely not alone, never be exhausted again Song Jieun - Don't Look At Me Like That Don’t look at me like that We’re just in love, that’s all Don’t hate on us, however you’re viewing us We’re just a little different Just leave us alone Can’t we live in a world where time stands still? Why? Why not? We did nothing wrong Why? Why not? We’re so in love Ailee - Heaven You taught me love in this harsh world I am happy with you alone Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven If we're together we will never cry never never cry Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Forever, together never gonna be alone BTS - Save Me Listen to my heartbeat It calls you whenever it wants to Because within this pitch black darkness You are shining so brightly Go spread love today, and every day.
5 Ways To Save Our Oceans
All the cards this week are making me and my mermaid feeling crinkle up and die. The Ocean Destruction is awful and if you wanna know more about that check out the amazing collection @nicolejb created!! But all hope is not lost. There are ways to not only stop the destruction but reverse some of its deadly effects. Chill With Your Carbon Footprint. One of the main reason the oceans are being destroyed is because of global warming so to help reduce the carbon foot print. Walk more, car pool, take shorter showers, and don't blast your heat in the winter! It really will make difference. Make Healthy and Sustainable Seafood Meals. Many fish species are rapidly depleting do to high demand and vanishing habitats. When eating seafood make sure to choose the options that are not being overexploited. Help Clean The Beach! When you're having a wonderful day at the beach and you stumble across litter, empty cans and plastic don't just leave it in the sand! Because every piece of trash that floats into the ocean ends up wrecking havoc on the animals that live there. Ocean Travel Responsibility Boating, kayaking, and sailing is the perfect way to spend the summer (and even winter for those brave enough). So make sure you travel the oceans respectfully. No throwing trash or chemicals over board. And if you want to take a cruise look for the one that is the most eco friendly! Educate For Change. The damage we are doing to our oceans is slowly becoming irreversible. The only way to make a change is if we are all working together! So educate your community, your friends and your family because our marine friends need our help, or else natural disasters will occur daily.
