OH SHIT

is this why the show was taken off nick?

So this is what air benders can do. Sucking the air out of people’s lungs. Just as cool as lightening bending if you ask me

No I don’t think you guys understand this is frightening

Airbenders are pretty much the most powerful benders. A firebender has to create fire. A waterbender is most powerful on the open seas as much as an earthbender is on land. But air is literally everywhere.
The Air Nomads weren’t dangerous because they chose not to be.

you’vE GONE TOO DEEP

Hey, HOLD UP.
While I agree that Airbenders do have a lot of power at their exposure, they aren’t the only ones.
Waterbenders can bend any type of fluid containing water, even blood inside the human body! That’s pretty fucking metal.

They can also take the water vapor out of the air, use their own sweat or even drain the water out of every living thing nearby. 

Imagine that ^^ happening to a person..
Next we have fire, the element of destruction. Like Airbenders, they can use the air around them, and transfer it into energy. Firebenders can bend or generate anything fire/ heat related.  That means lightning, flames, or extreme heat that has the potential to shape its environment (such as melt molten rock and metal.) Even fire breath!



Next we have Earth. Earthbenders can bend anything related or comprised of Earth, such as metal, rock, dirt, sand, etc. EVEN LAVA. Anything mineral related? You got it. Admittedly, minerals- although extremely easy to come by, are not as present as water or air. But there sure is enough to make use of, and we can’t say Earthbenders aren’t powerful!

This guy just stopped a volcano. 

Not only are they powerful, but they are also graceful. 

And I mean look at this! Avatar Kyoshi Earthbends a freaking continent in HALF!

In conclusion, fear all benders.

hearts-of-fire:

What. I have never seen this color on a Doberman. bendragon-cumbersmaug please explain

Albino.
Unfortunately, some people breed doberman lines that carry what’s called Oculocutaneous Albinism, which is similar to OCA4 (one of the types of albinism that affect humans). These dobermans suffer from the same health problems, including coat, skin, digestive, and ocular issues. They also sunburn incredibly easily, and are extremely photosensitive. As you can see, this poor girl is sitting in the shade and still squinting her eyes tight against the light. It also severely ups their chances for several types of cancer, including skin cancer.
All albino doberman trace back to a single “white” (albino, cough) female named Sheba. Sheba was from lines that were already not being used by good breeders due to poor conformation and unstable temperament concerns. Due to the intense inbreeding on an already physically and mentally unhealthy pedigree, many albino doberman and doberman from those lines die very young from cancers and other maladies. Not to say that dobes are a particularly healthy breed in the first place, but why add to that when it’s only going to make things worse? Sadly, I know far too many albinos which died at 2… 3… 4… from aggressive forms of cancer. Even if the average lifespan of the breed is only 8-10 years, that’s still less than half!
All albino doberman and normal colored doberman from lines that carry albinism are designated with a “Z” in their registration numbers if they are registered through AKC. The “Z” is a warning to good breeders- do NOT breed to this dog. Sadly, there are people out there who see the “Z” as a “$” and will purposely breed “Z-factored” dogs together and sell the resulting albino puppies as “rare”, “white”, “cream”, “blonde”, or “leucistic”. They claim that all doberman breeders get “whites” sometimes and the good breeders just supposedly kill the “whites”. “White is right” is a frequent quote used by albino supporters, and they reject the recent studies proving that yes, these dogs are indeed albino and should not be bred.
To add to that, those who support albino doberman also refuse to health test or title their dogs- and with a breed that has a 50% chance of dropping dead from a heart problem called DCM, why wouldn’t you be fervently checking the heart to make sure it’s okay? With a breed so stigmatized by the general public re:aggression, why wouldn’t you shoot for some obedience/working titles at least to prove that your dogs are stable enough to be happy companions? If you are so god damned concerned with proving to everyone that albino doberman are “just as good, if not better” than non-albinos, why don’t you put your money where your mouth is? The reason is because genetics, science, and experience with temperaments tells them that they’re wrong, and they refuse to accept that.

thegreenwolf:

Apparently someone didn’t grow up in a farming community. Kids on farms with livestock tend to learn pretty early on about the realities of where meat comes from. It’s not some horrible “OH MY GOD YOU KILLED THE CUTE LITTLE PIG HOW DARE YOU” message that they get, but “We’ve cared for this pig* for this amount of time, and now’s the time we kill it so we have meat (or sell it so we have money to pay the bills)”. Yes, there are farm kids who grow up to be vegan, but plenty don’t.
There’s a huge disconnect between American culture and the realities of our food and where it comes from, across the board. This leads not only to ignorance like the above sign, but also the horror of modern factory farms. There are much more humane ways to kill an animal for meat than the mass-production lines, just as there are more eco-friendly ways to grow produce than growing huge fields of nothing but one crop, with pesticides and chemical fertilizers for all. The problem with “OMG YOU EAT MEAT? YOU MONSTER!” attitudes is that they keep distancing people from reality; most people don’t respond well to guilt, and therefore won’t investigate their options. Because when you present your way as the ONLY way, people who don’t adhere to that way will turn back to whatever they were doing because your way doesn’t work for them. 
But if we encourage everyone to learn about where food comes from, then let people make their own educated decisions, then we have more of a chance of making things better. It may not match everyone’s idea of “better”, because there are always going to be people who eat meat and some other people make it their business to not like that. But I’d rather have people eating meat from free-range farms and humane kills (and have THAT be the subsidized, affordable source) than the way things are now. Encouraging curiosity and open inquiry, not political fundamentalism and guilt-slinging, seems to be a better way to bring that about.
(* And there’s a good reason they tell you as a kid to stay away from the pig pen. Pigs are NOT safe to be around, especially when full grown, and they have been known to eat people who got into their pens. We’re not sending adorable little cute things to the slaughterhouse.)
