Homeless mother needs your help!

Wind just moved to Colorado from Alabama after leaving her boyfriend. Her and her 6-year-old son were originally staying with a family member, but that quickly turned dangerous and abusive. They slept in our bed (in our bus) last night. While I don’t have a problem with the floor, I don’t think our school bus is the best place for a little boy to live. He asked to stay with us last night, so at least he feels safe.

Wind is so ready to get on with her life and get her little boy into their own apartment. Roy and I will help her get in touch with Colorado human services and the food bank and such on Monday and in the mean time, it would be really cool if they could stay in a motel room.

These are two really wonderful people that shouldn’t be in this situation.

If you can send anything to her cashapp, it would really help.

Please let me know if that link doesn’t work, I wanna make sure she get some money.

Wind just gave me permission to post these photos for y’all.

After her son woke up, Roy went to work keeping him busy with math, reading, and lots of rough housing.

Later today we’re gonna rearrange the bus a bit so Roy and I have more room on the floor and they can stay with us as long as they want/need to.

All the resource places open tomorrow, so Roy is taking the day off to make sure Wind can get around as much as she needs to.

We all have food right now, but we can always use gas money (

We’re working on a wishlist for his school supplies and clothes. They’ve lost most of their things in this move.

Charities plea for help after Aquarius migrant rescue ship’s flag revoked


Médecins Sans Frontières and SOS Méditerranée described the decision by the Panama Maritime Authority to deflag the vessel as “a major blow” to the ship’s humanitarian mission.

[…] The Aquarius is the last private rescue ship operating in the area used for crossings from Libya to Europe. It has been at the centre of a row about Europe’s approach to migration since Italy refused to allow it to dock on its shores in June. Last month it spent 19 days docked in the French port of Marseille after Gibraltar revoked its flag. It set sail again last week after first acquiring Panamanian recognition.

[…] In a letter to the ship’s operators the PMA said had it been urged to “immediate action” by the Italian authorities. SOSM and MSF quoted the PMA letter as saying: “Unfortunately, it is necessary that [the Aquarius] be excluded from our registry, because it implies a political problem against the Panamanian government and the Panamanian fleet that arrive to European port.”

Karline Kleijer, MSF’s head of emergencies, said the fate of the boat highlighted the double standards of Europe’s politicians over migrants and refugees. “For the past two years, European leaders have claimed that people should not die at sea, but at the same time they have pursued dangerous and ill-informed policies that have brought the humanitarian crisis in the central Mediterranean and in Libya to new lows. This tragedy has to end, but that can only happen if EU governments allow the Aquarius and other search and rescue vessels to continue providing lifesaving assistance and bearing witness where it is so desperately needed.”

i think its hilarious that the cookie-cracker invented to be purposefully bland so as to discourage masturbation has now ended up cinnamon flavored, drenched in a sugary glaze, and shaped like a fun treat from a spooky cartoon dog show

this dude is just screaming at us from the afterlife for what we’ve done to his anti-jackoff cookie

to be entirely fair to old man “limp dick or ELSE” graham, at this point in the game i’m far too busy shoveling scooby snacks into my gaping cracker cruncher to even have time to consider sexual deviancy, so he might have won the long con here

For anyone who is as curious as I am

Snail Reviews


In which I review all the types of snails I’ve kept in an incredibly biased but also incredibly accurate manner:

Zebra Nerite – Neritina natalensis

A nice stripy friend, good Aesthetic™. Generally inoffensive and polite. But unfortunately also a fucking idiot who climbs out of the (covered!!!) tank and reappears dead, in the filter of a different tank six feet away two months later. 


What a shame, the poor groom’s bride is a goddamn moron

2/5 stars for lack of foresight and general tomfoolery

Red Racer NeriteVittina waigiensis

PRETTY. Mostly well behaved. Likes to chill out upside down in the top corner a lot which is weird but hey to each their own. Haven’t had these guys all that long but they’re proving to be good buddies.

Solid 4.2/5 stars, extra points given cause they’re fucking stunning. This one is named Rose and I love her :3


Ishimaki Smooth NeriteClithon retropictus

Smoooooooth boys awwww yeah. Disgraceful algae eaters, truly. Leave these pathetic little halfhearted trails around, all dotted with eggs because they’re horny little boogers too. So they make as much mess as they clean. But still v smooth and v reliable, highly trustworthy. Like that one weird flaky stoner friend who you still somehow trust with your life and limb. 


3.7/5 stars y’all are good people

Bladder SnailPhysidae sp.


Perfect. Flawless. Left handed! Which I learned today is unusual for snails. Gets an unfairly bad rap in the aquarium world, I adore these little kids so much. They’re sparkly and speedy have little tiny smooshy faces. 

68/10 have done nothing wrong I would Die for them

Pond SnailLymnaea sp.

Actually different from bladder snails which I also learned today. I also seem to have multiple species in my tank because some of mine are lefties and some are righties. 


27/12 stars I hope they’re all having a good day and I would like to give them each a kiss

Mini Ramshorn SnailPlanorbis sp.

Ok ok I’ll admit I was a hypocrite and I didn’t like these for a while. I still kinda don’t love them as much as the pondies. But they’ve grown on me. Itty bitty, not as aesthetically pleasing, but they try their best and I respect that. We live in peace together.  

3.5/5 stars but like, it’s not you it’s me                         (x)


Marbled Limpet – Septoria porcellana

Oh boy we have a rocky relationship, these limpets and I. One of these little motherfUCKERS managed to get into the motor housing of my quietflow last month and oh wow I’ve never been so angry at a mollusk in my LIFE. Just pure, burning fury. My god. And it wasn’t a fluke like the others were obviously more than interested in doing the exact same thing. Also make prodigious amounts of poop, I’m talking out-shitting three goldfish like piles of snail poop. Not suited to the small, poorly filtered tank.

BUT they are some of the best algae cleaners I’ve ever seen. Just three of them have almost cleared the walls of my 150 gallon in about two weeks which is pretty incredible. 


Uhhhhhhhh ignore the racer nerite shhhhh

±3/5 stars I’m conflicted

Rabbit SnailTylomelania sp.


A quick rundown by color:

  • Orange: Amazing, fruity, adorable, glorious
  • Yellow: Squishy, incredible, persevering, lovely
  • Spotted: Wonderful, magical, curious, perfect
  • Other spotted: Astonishing, chunky, immaculate, stunning

TIL there are only around 120 anonymous Michelin restaurant inspectors in the world. They spend 3 out of every 4 weeks on the road, and must vacate a region for 10 years if they think a restaurant suspects their identity.


Imagine thinking your spouse is a sexy secret agent for decades only to find out he’s a restaurant critic for fat tire boy magazine

Better yet imagine a real spy getting in trouble and mistaking a restaurant critic for a fellow agent. But the critic takes their job very seriously and won’t reveal themselves and so gets pulled into some kind of huge dangerous conspiracy whilst continuing to take notes on the quality of every restaurant they almost get shot in.

Gender Dysphoria Research. Participation needed!


Hello Tumblr! I’m Charles, a transgender male researcher doing research into the psychology of gender dysphoria at the University of Southern California. I hope to use the insights gathered by this research to bring transgender perspectives and nonbinary inclusion into the research discourse on transgender issues, which has been done almost entirely by cisgender scientists.

I am looking for participants to take my 15 minute survey on gender dysphoria. I especially need transgender participants, but cisgender people are encouraged to take the survey so I can use their experiences for comparison! The survey is completely anonymous and no personally identifying information is obtained. This research was approved by the USC Institutional Review Board and was judged as having the least risk to participants.

The survey has multiple pages so please click the arrows on the bottom of the pages through to the end. I appreciate your participation and hope to be able to use the results to help the transgender community! 

The survey can be found at
