He was brought to Virginia as a toddler, deported at 19. He died in an overheated tractor-trailer trying to return.

Have a good day at work little buddy
EVERYONE LOOK AT THIS IMMEDIATELY.
Students at Karihwanoron Mohawk Immersion School have been learning Mohawk language, philosophy and culture since 1988. But the school doesn’t qualify for adequate government funding, so it’s at risk of closing down.

Inventions from the Past That Didn’t Catch On.
Nowadays we can listen to music, watch movies and read the news on our smartphones. But back in the day, if you wanted to keep up-to-date with everything, you could wear a Radio Hat.
This is probably how modern smart glasses were invented!
Some things in their first edition looked so ridiculous that people were too embarrassed to use them. For example, these trendy life jackets!
The GoofyBike. This is what, according to Charles Steinlauf of Chicago, a family bicycle is supposed to look like. So basically, no one is going anywhere without a sewing machine.
A motorized surfboard, for a real gentlemen.
And while on dry land, try these classy motorized roller skates as well.
Is this a pair of mini-bikes? Roller skates?
Love reading in bed? Well then, these glasses are just the thing for you!
Another helpful device for all those who love reading while lying on their front.
The hangover mask: guaranteed to help you look young and fresh even after the wildest party…
The Anti-Bandit Bag. When a burglar grabs your bag, you press the button, the chain is pulled, and the bottom of the case falls out and the content is scattered all over the ground. That sounds immensely helpful — thanks, John H. T. Rinfret!
A brush that simultaneously polishes your bald scalp and brushes what’s left of your hair.
Bring back bed glasses.
Its like the 80’s all over again, a remorseless madwoman runs the UK, a maniacal bastard runs the US, the world’s on the brink of nuclear war and all I want to do is listen to synthpop
star wars, ghostbusters, and mad max all pass the bechdel test now tho
that helps with the deja vu but tragically not the crushing fear of nuclear apocalypse
try the synthpop again
Ok real talk WHO is going to shell out 200+ dollars for this almost life size horse skeleton
can you fucking sit on it tho
wouldn’t that be really uncomfortable?
is it here, @kaijutegu?
I can’t sit on it but a skeleton can!
THAT SKELETON LOOKS SO EXCITED FOR THIS
“LOOK MOM I FINALLY GOT THAT PONY YOU PROMISED ME BACK WHEN I WAS 6! BET YOU THOUGHT I DIDN’T REMEMBER!”
This is my aesthetic
this is a pretty good summary of what Amsterdam is like
THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON IN THIS VIDEO WHAT WAS UP WITH THE GUY RUNNING AT THE VERY BEGINNING AND THE ONE CAR HIP-CHECKING THE OTHER INTO A WATERY OBLIVION AND THE SPEEDBOAT AND AAAAAAAAAAAH
And then they destroy the stoop on that building, and just drive off???
did any of y’all see the motorcycle on the sidewalk in the other building
oh my god and the two pedestrians huddling on the very edge of the canal to avoid getting hit by the motorcycle
Saw folks in the notes saying this was from the filming of The Hitman’s Bodyguard, and sure enough…
Polycephaly is the condition of having more than one head.
Two-headed animals (called bicephalic or dicephalic) and three-headed (tricephalic) animals are the only type of multi-headed creatures seen in the real world, and form by the same process as conjoined twins from monozygotic twin embryos.
While two headed snakes are rare, they do occur in both the wild and in captivity at a rate of about 1 in 10,000 births.
Most wild polycephalic snakes do not live long, but some captive individuals do. A two-headed black rat snake with separate throats and stomachs survived for 20 years.
Why does this seem to happen to snakes so often compared to other animals? I mean, you don’t see this happen to dogs or cats very often but snake embryos seem almost eager to mix it up every once in a while and pull a two-for-one deal in the head department.
The consensus seems to be that polycephaly occurs more often in reptiles than other animals, but the why of it, as far as I could find out, is relatively unknown. Polycephalic animals appear so infrequently and they survive for such a short time that scientists just have not been able to study them sufficiently. If anyone can find more information about why it happens more often in reptiles, feel free to chime in. In the meantime, enjoy these two-headed lizards and turtles:
Can you imagine the arguments!
One thought real quick: two-headed dinosaurs
oh my god i will lose my fuckin mind the day that fossil is found
@magicturtle two headed dinosaurs seems like something you’d be down for.
She got no standing ovation. She got no mainstream media lauds for her heroism. She got no kudos for leaving home, a much longer journey than that other senator, the one from Arizona, to get to DC, and there are no mainstream media stories on it that I can find… I only found out from a friend who spotted it on Twitter.
She didn’t do it for publicity.
Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii was just doing her job as a good politician, voting not to repeal the ACA so as to protect her constituents. She has Stage Four kidney cancer — that means scarce chances of survival — is recovering from a second surgery to remove part of a rib, and made sure she got to her seat in the Senate Chamber to vote “no” to whatever Republican wealth-care crap was thrown at her.
But you’ll only find out about it on social media. Because she’s not a pale male, maybe?
The heroic Senator with severe cancer who interrupted treatment to vote… NO
Suck it, McCain.
Seriously, if you’re looking for a kitty, please consider adopting a black cat, because a) they’re adopted less due to superstition, in many places, b) it’s really fun having The Void cuddle up to you and purr, murrp, and mew, and c) when they want your food and you don’t give it to them, they become tiny grumpy panthers and it’s hilarious
Also they look like toothless
