Here are 5 things you should know.
1. The odds of killing a pedestrian with your vehicle become twice as deadly between the speeds of 30 and 40 mph. In residential neighborhoods where the limit is 30, go 30. It can mean the difference between someone living or dying.
If you hit someone at 30mph with your vehicle, they have a 40% chance of not surviving the collision. If you hit them at 40mph, they have an 80% chance of not making it.
An experience shared: “The road right in front of my house is 30mph and people constantly fly up and down it going 40-50. It infuriates me that my next trip crossing the street to my mailbox could mean I end up in a casket tomorrow because many people place no value on human life other than them and their own.”
2. Don’t turn around and go back home after your dog has done its duty.
The dog will begin to learn that you take it back home after it shits. And after they learn they’re going to hold their sh*t in for them to walk longer. So what you need to do is have a set path or two that you take and follow that path completely. This lets the dog know that they have a set amount of time for them to do their duty before they get back home.
3. You should never be afraid to call 911 if you or someone you know has an overdose. 40 US states and DC have laws preventing the arrest of those involved in an overdose.
Research suggests many people involved in an OD refuse to call for help worrying about police involvement, yet 40 States and DC have some sort of law protecting both the person who overdose and the caller from charges in a variety of ways.
Check the laws for your specific state, but if you or someone you know ODs, always call 911 regardless of these laws.

4. eBay reads all your messages, and lower-level employees can access your personal contact info.
eBay supports a culture that could easily lead to stalking. Please consider this when you use any private website – I’m sure it’s no different.
5. Here is why Japan is allowing hybrid animal-human fœtus.
Organs are hard to find. If you need an organ transplant, you need a donor. And to have a donor, you need a fresh dead body with the same blood type and same complex other factors. And this is hard to find, and people can wait a month to get a transplant. This is where pigs come into play. Pigs and humans are not very différents, and we have the technology to create pigs with human organs. Let the pig mature, you have a fresh human organ ready to transplant. This is why Japan is allowing these kinds of fœtus to be made, it’s the first step for unlimited replacement organs.
