One thing I hate when articles praise disabled people for doing stuff that is expected of able-bodied/neurotypical people is when they use language like, “They were different but their parents loved them as much as they loved their other kids!”

Like, that stuff is dehumanising! It’s not something that should be mentioned and praised in an article, it’s something that should be expected of a parent!





The “friend zone” and unrequited love are not the same thing. Unrequited love is, “I love you, you don’t love me in that same way, I am sad about that.” The “friend zone” is, “I love you, you don’t love me in that same way, you have therefore wronged me.”

Unrequited love is, “My unilateral crush is my problem.” The “friend zone” is, “My unilateral crush is your problem.”

Again for the ones in the back


Unrequited Love is sad. The friendzone is creepy.




labradoodles are nice and all but combining the food obsession of a lab with the intelligence of a poodle creates the ultimate stealth unit whose sole mission in life is to get into the pantry and Eliminate All Bread

I’m detecting multiple stories behind this post

Honestly though having been a professional dog trainer (until permanent disability overtook my ability to fucking stand for long periods) this is basically the truth. It’s like…. beagle + boxer is the other disaster mix tbh because you get the single greatest wandering dog of all time. You will never contain this dog, you will probably not be able to RECALL this dog, and it will never consider property boundaries a meaningful concept. But he’ll be happy to eat your sandwich for you.

Tree-dwelling gray foxes decorate with skeletons


A professor of evolutionary biology at the University of Arizona, Alexander Badyaev
also happens to be an award-winning nature photographer.

Inspired by
both passions, perhaps, his curiosity was piqued by the fawn and rabbit
skeletons he would often find perched on the branches of ironwood trees
outside his home in the desert near Tucson, Arizona. “Once I discovered
that these trees are social centers of gray fox activity, I got hooked
on observing these animals and learning their biology,” he says.

As explained in the California Academy of Sciences’ magazine, bioGraphic,
the curious species first evolved more than seven million years ago in
the lush tropical forests that once enveloped the area that is now the
American Southwest. “Since that time,” notes bioGraphic, “this
anatomically distinct fox has accumulated an impressive array of
un-fox-like adaptations for life in the canopy, including primate-like
flexible wrists and cat-like paws with long, curved claws that allow it
to grip tree branches…”

not to be old and out of touch but i saw a bunch of teenage kids using the word wavy to describe something cool and i genuinely have no idea what that’s about


I am twenty-eight god damn years old. I am going to be thirty next year. I have no idea what these kids are on about anymore. I’ve become Old™️; I don’t understand the lingo anymore. I have peaked in my lingo and internet usage. The last thing I learned was “AF” and I don’t think people even use it anymore.

Humpback Whale

Megaptera novaeangliae

Humpback whales are known for their haunting songs, which are complex sequences of moans, howls and cries that often continue for hours, according to National Geographic. Only male whales sing, so scientists think they are trying to attract potential mates.

A male may sing for hours, repeating the song several times. All males in a population sing the same song, but the songs of each population are different. For example, whales in the North Atlantic sing one song, while whales in the North Pacific sing another song, according to the NOAA. Songs gradually change from year to year.

Songs can be heard 20 miles (30 km) away, according to the NOAA.


Jadeite mask

Olmec culture (Veracruz, Mexico), Middle Formative period, 900–600 B.C.

22 cm (8 ½ in.) high

This is one of the finest Olmec masks in a public collection. The
naturalistic features of this masterpiece recall monumental Olmec stone
heads rendering historical individuals. Perhaps the portrait of a ruler,
this may have been a symbol of state authority or a funerary item. The
mask originally was green; the gray color was caused by its being put
into a fire, as part of a religious ritual.  Similar masks have been found in a freshwater spring in western Tabasco state, where presumably they were left as offerings.
