Archaeologists find mummy with natural hair (post via Facebook)
2000 Year Old Mummy Still Has Natural Hair. Turns out that there is some serious truth to the fact the Egyptians were Black Africans .I often wondered why Hollywood refused to accurately display movies that have Egyptians with Dark skin tones. That always boggled my mind. The natural hair of this mummy proves what history has been saying all along. 2000 Year Old Mummy Still Has Natural Hair I tell you one thing though, after 2000 years her natural hair is still intact, i have GOT to know which protein treatment she was using cuz damn. 2000 years! Some of us can’t stop our hair from falling out after a month, but 2000 years?! The ancient Egyptians styled their hair an analysis of mummies has found. Natalie McCreesh, an archaeological scientist from the KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology at the University of Manchester, UK, and her colleagues studied hair samples taken from 18 mummies. The oldest is around 3,500 years old, but most were excavated from a cemetery in the Dakhleh Oasis in the Egypt Desert, and date from Greco-Roman times, around 2,300 years ago.

My favorite vine in gif form.
it’s so fucking funny especially when it’s not your country that has been completely decimated by a war fought for oil yeah hilarious
Afghanistan is environmentally a desert area! Lets not take the fun out of everything god fucking damn it.
afganistan is a mountianous country in a dry part of the world actually which experiences various extremes of climate and weather. winters in certain parts of the country can be very cold and snowy while the summers are very hot and dry, much like america. there’s a wet season that runs from the middle of the winter until early spring.
some parts of the country is very dry all year round which means that those parts can be classified within the desert or desert steppe climate classification such as in the lowland deserts of the southwest but the mountains of afghanistan can see snow from october through april depending on the elevation
so while, yes, areas of afganistan can be classified as ‘a desert area’ it doesn’t give an american solider the right to say all afganistan is, is ‘fucking dirt’ i appreciate and thank the troops for all they do and while i can think the joke he made is funny on a certain level, the armed forces have completely decimated, like i said, whole areas of the country for what? for oil, i’m not putting that on the troops but i am putting it on big business in america, a war zone isn’t a place to make jokes especially when whole entire families and livelihoods and lineages have been wiped out for no good reason besides an oil pipeline that has to pass through the region to give us cheaper oil.
why were we even in afganistan in the first place? bc that’s where osama bin laden was from? nope he was from saudi arabia along with most of the hijackers who committed the terror attacks on 9/11
so please, tell me again how i’m ‘taking the fun out of everything’ when people have been dying for 10+ years at the hands of our government for no real reason at all
airbrush clouds cause Im lazy
OH NO THAT’S REALLY CUTE
PSA - PLEASE READ AND SPREAD HE WORD!!!
IF YOU SEE THIS PLANT AT ALL, DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!
Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive herb in the carrot family which was originally brought to North America from Asia and has since become established in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest regions of the United States. Giant hogweed grows along streams and rivers and in fields, forests, yards and roadsides, and a giant hogweed plant can reach 14 feet or more in height with compound leaves up to 5 feet in width.Giant Hogweed sap contains toxic chemicals known as Furanocoumarins. When these chemicals come into contact with the skin and are exposed to sunlight, they cause a condition called Phytophotodermatitis, a reddening of the skin often followed by severe blistering and burns. These injuries can last for several months, and even after they have subsided the affected areas of skin can remain sensitive to light for years. Furanocoumarins are also carcinogenic and teratogenic, meaning they can cause cancer and birth defects. The sap can also cause temporary (or even permanent) blindness if introduced into the eyes.
If someone comes into physical contact with Giant Hogweed, the following steps should be taken:
If a reaction occurs, the early application of topical steroids may lessen the severity of the reaction and ease the discomfort. The affected area of skin may remain sensitive to sunlight for a few years, so applying sun block and keeping the affected area shielded from the sun whenever possible are sensible precautions
- Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and COLD water as soon as possible.
- Keep the exposed area away from sunlight for 48 hours.
- If Hogweed sap gets into the eyes, rinse them with water and wear sunglasses.
- See a doctor if any sign of reaction sets in.PLEASE, DO NOT JUST READ AND SCROLL! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION!!!
This grows mostly in Washington, Oregon, then most of the upper eastern states [Ohio, New York, Maryland, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, etc.].
From what I’ve seen [in Washington], most of the time they’re just tiny little flowers on the side of the road or creeks [the size of your finger]. For those, the sap causes a lot of burning and itching sensations, which last for days.
I can only imagine these types of reactions listed above from bigger versions.
