As a marine biologist I can confirm this to be true.

FACT OF THE DAY: these images of this recently discovered planet come to us from the New Horizons space probe. Launched in 1977, New Horizons goal was to exit the solar system and look for potentially livable planets in neighboring star systems. For 35 years, New Horizons was unsuccessful; a clash with an asteroid in the Kuiper Belt sent it drastically off-course. However, this turned out to be a blessing in surprise. On February 27th of this year, New Horizons came across a large planetary body, about 1.5x the size of Earth. Scientists are optimistic that this new planet can indeed sustain life. Two new probes have been launched and are expected to reach the newly discovered planet in 2030.
Microhyla borneensis (junior synonym Microhyla nepenthicola), also known as the Mantang narrow-mouthed frog, is a species of microhylid frog found in the Matang Range in Sarawak, Borneo. It was once the smallest known frog from the Old World (the current record holder is Paedophryne amauensis from New Guinea). Adult males of this species have a snout-vent length (SVL) of 10.6–12.8 mm. Tadpoles measure just 3 mm. It is one of 30 species in the genus Microhyla, 5 others of which live in Borneo. It is endemic to Borneo. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and intermittent freshwater marshes. The International Union for Conservation of Nature does not consider it threatened.
Frogs of the species that was eventually described as Microhyla nepenthicola had been known to scientists for at least 100 years prior to its description in 2010. However, scientists had always assumed that the frogs were juveniles of another species. Researchers Indraneil Das and Alexander Haas recognized that they were actually adults when they heard the frogs calling in Kubah National Park, since only adult frogs make calls. Adult males call from the pitcher plants at dusk.
The smallest known Old World frog species prior to the description of Microhyla nepenthicola was Stumpffia pygmaea, with a snout-vent length of 10.9–12.0 mm.

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
Re blogging for commentary mostly. How are people so ignorant? The ONLY thing you can buy w food stamps is fucking FOOD.

Dr. Krantz and Clyde mounted at the Smithsonian. Still my favourite thing ever.
Before Krantz died, he said to Smithsonian anthropologist David Hunt, “I’ve been a teacher all my life and I think I might as well be a teacher after I’m dead, so why don’t I just give you my body.” When Hunt agreed, Krantz added, “But there’s one catch: You have to keep my dogs with me.”
This is the happiest skeleton I’ve ever seen
And here’s the “before” to the Smithsonian’s “after”…
