The extinct Tasmanian tiger
i cant believe that we allowed an animal which was alive so recently that we have videos of it to go extinct
In a way you’d think that in these modern times we wouldn’t possibly let an animal go extinct but this is a very dangerous way of thinking - and is exactly why we may find species are to become extinct in the near future. For example a tiger like the Sumatran is said to become extinct by just next year, but people will not act significantly enough because they don’t believe that we would let something like that happen.
But in reality, there are already so many animals that are extinct from the wild, like the giant tortoise or species of deer, and so many heading to extinction like the Amur Leopard, where only 45 are said to remain, and the Javan Rhino, where there are no more than 50 and none in captivity.
and lets not forget the Northern White Rhino, where literally 4 remain.
It is so important to act while they are still with us.

The Baiji river dolphin is another recently endangered (or considered so) species as of 2006. :( There are a ton of conservation efforts that just don’t have the support they need, be it monetary or governmental.
And to add to the OP’s post here is a link to a video with more Thylacine/Tasmanian Tiger footage.

So last summer me and my step mom went to her friends first triathlon. We were just going to take photos for her, but we saw this guy with a crab on his head. It was before the race and we had time. So we walked over to him and asked why there was a crab on his head. He told us: “Last year my daughter committed suicide. She was bullied in school and she had no friends. She felt like there was no one there for her. In her suicide note she said she was sorry, and that it was too late to save her. She had always wanted to be in the olympics for running, so she signed up for the race a month before she died. She cant be here to run it, so i will for her. I want her to know it is never too late, for anything. Its never too late to run a race, or to be saved.”
This 50 year old man is running a triathlon for his daughter to prove it wans’t too late.

This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

One of my favorite arrangements of this song EVER. I love barbershop. And I love Vocal Spectrum. They are the SHIT. I saw them in concert once - totally the coolest thing ever.
