American Society for Velociraptor Attack Prevention

Today’s FamilyFirst pick is listed under Education.
Why? because knowledge, in this case, could SAVE YOUR LIFE!
We’re talking about avoiding velociraptor attacks.
It’s no laughing matter. Velociraptor attack is the 3rd leading cause of death for men age 27-29. But that doesn’t mean anyone outside that demographic range is safe.
Velociraptors can attack anyone, anytime. The educated, wary individual is the safer one.

SafeNow.org

safenow.jpgThe Department of Homeland Security has a difficult job, to be sure. It’s certainly no laughing matter.
But the fact is that laughter is the best medicine. And humor makes things go better.
With that, I present today’s FamilyFirst site: SafeNow.org.
What they have done is take the illustrations that the government uses on the Homeland Security website and “re-interpreted” them.
I think you’ll find it quite amusing.

Cow Abductions

As you know, I try to pick sites that aren’t too graphics-heavy for FamilyFirst picks. I’ve had broadband since 1998, but I realize that many folks out there are still chugging along at dialup speeds.
With that, I apologize to them with regards to today’s pick. The site consists of a pretty large Flash file.
However, the subject of the site is of such importance that I ask you to bear with me. Its message is serious, and should be listened to.
The site is called Cowabduction.com. Its purpose is to educate the public on a serious problem that is growing at an alarming rate: the abduction of bovines by aliens.

The Childhood Goat Trauma Foundation

The world is a dangerous place. You have to look out for hazards of all sorts, and sometimes trauma can be inflicted from innocent situations.
One of the most heinous forms of traumatization comes from an unlikely source: petting zoos.
Sadly, many parents take their innocent children to these supposedly safe recreational diversions only to have them exposed to a horrible phenomenon: goat trauma.
Here’s the mission of today’s FamilyFirst site:
“The Childhood Goat Trauma Foundation was created in 1982 by a small group that originally came together as a an informal support group for problems that were the result of traumatic experiences at petting zoos as children. This group realized that there were many others out there who were afraid to come forward with their horrific stories and wanted to find some way to help as many people as they could. The Childhood Goat Trauma Foundation is the result of their dream. Through its programs and workshops, individuals from all walks of life have been able to live happier and more fulfilling lives, without the ever-present ghosts of their personal goat traumas. Some have even made such progress that they have been able to put their traumas completely behind them and rejoin mainstream society.”
