This is actually the cutest thing ever okay
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!!!
Extra note: if you live in Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan or New York and see one of these, call your state’s department of agriculture to report it, and trained professionals will come kill it before it can produce seeds and spread.
Frankly, if you see one in general, probably call your DOA and see if there’s a program in place.
Do not burn it, because the smoke will give you the same reaction.
If for some ungodly reason there isn’t a professional who can handle it for you (and please, please use a professional), the DOA of New York has [this guide] for how to deal with it yourself.

when a fan whispered a compliment to Key
I will forever reblog this ain’t nobody gonna stop meh
The way Key stares at her is like a scene from a movie.
look at the notes, i think someone should write a fanfic, i’ve reblogged this like 10 times or something
Key waited patiently as always, rocking back and forth on his heels. His mind was hazed from exhaustion and his repetitive schedule: run from one place to another, listen to screaming fangirls, perform, there was never anything new. Key kept thinking of all that had to be done, his head pounding into a numb feeling from the whirring thoughts.
“You’re so handsome~" said a sweet voice, overpowered by the screaming of the other fangirls. But Key heard it, loud and clear, and his head lightened instantly. He swiftly turned his head to the passing fan, whose face he couldn’t see quick enough.
'Handsome…' Key thought, a soft smile spreading on his lips unconsciously. He felt his face get warm and his heart beat skipped a beat, and Key couldn't pin down why. It was just a compliment like any other, he had heard plenty his whole career. But this one…
'Not pretty or cute…handsome. They only call Minho or Jonghyun that, not me. Handsome…'
Key quickly turned his head back and bit his lip to stop the overpowering smile that had creeped onto it.
'Guess I'll need to look at some fancams later,' he thought, laughing to himself.
idk don’t kill me i can’t write.
JESUS CHRIST I LOVE YOU FOR ACTUALLY WRITING THAT ASDFGHJGFDSA. I’m actually gonna make a short fanfic with this gifset xD
