when i was a child i used to think teens were grown ups and when i was a teen i thought college students were grown ups and now that im a college student im just like what the hell is a grown up anymore
Now that I’m older than college age I’ve concluded that grown ups are a myth.
The Titanoboa, is a 48ft long snake dating from around 60-58million years ago. It had a rib cage 2ft wide, allowing it to eat whole crocodiles, and surrounding the ribcage were muscles so powerful that it could crush a rhino. Titanoboa was so big it couldn’t even spend long amounts of time on land, because the force of gravity acting on it would cause it to suffocate under its own weight.
I’m so glad they aren’t around
omg me too. I’m scared enough of 26 ft long anacondas. I’m so happy Megalodons, those giant sharks, aren’t alive either
Praise natural selection
I remember watching Walking with Beasts or something similar, or some British tv show about evolution
The subject was something like a 12 foot long water scorpion
I was so startled by its sudden appearance and narration that I yelped: “12 fucking feet?!?! I’m fucking glad it’s extinct!”
Dude, prehistory was home to some fucking TERRIFYING creatures. For some reason, everything back then was enormous and scary. Extinction doesn’t always have to be a bad thing!
And Poppy, what you saw was an arthropod known as Pterygotus (it was actually featured in Walking With Monsters). Not only was it as big (or maybe even bigger) than your average human, it had a stinger the size of a lightbulb. REALLY glad that bugger isn’t around anymore.
Also, Megalodon deserves to be mention again, because just hearing its name makes me want to never be submerged in water ever again.
GOD, I HATE THIS POST. HOW DO WE EVEN KNOW THAT SHIT ISN’T STILL AROUND? LURKING? EVOLVING? WE DON’T. WE DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT SHIT DOWN THERE. THE OCEAN IS A PRIMEVAL HELLSCAPE NIGHTMARE AND WE ALL JUST DIP OUR STUPID FRAGILE UNPROTECTED FETUS BODIES AROUND THE EDGES OF IT LIKE THAT’S NORMAL. FUCK THE OCEAN.
this is so relevant to my interests
aM I SICK OR NOT SICK??! MAKE UP YOUR FUCKING MIND STUPID FUCKING BODY FUCK WHY CAN’T I JUST BE A DRAGON
… That sounds like the very first step of turning into a dragon. Your body begins to change itself, so your temperature and immune system change.
okay if i’m turning into a dragon, you’re getting a free ride
#can we just stop and appreciate Harry’s face in this scene? #I mean, he’s literally waiting for someone to say something about Hermione’s blood status #she’s the only Muggleborn in the slug club full of purebloods and well known people #and Harry’s there just like “say something I dare you” #and if you look at her face, you can see the actual hesitation and somewhat fear of what will happen next after telling of her parents occupation #Harry truly is acting like Hermione’s big brother, which I absolutely love #i just adore this scene
I love that Neville looks genuinely interested in what hermione’s talking about.
Harry: I wish a motherfucka would talk shit right now
Say something, make my day
Nevile looks like he’s just made a private mental note in flaming red ink: WHATEVER THE HELL A DENTIST IS, DON’T MESS WITH ONE.
#this is a harry potter blog #seriously any profession that turns out a kid like hermione #must be utterly terrifying #neville finds out it involves rearranging people’s teeth with wires and drills #and drugs and scrapy knives #and is like AHA #I KNEW IT#I KNEW THEY WERE TERRIFYING #hermione granger: horrifying storm of a girl since day one #(so do the muggles have to be hunted down for that or does the government assign you targets) he asks her one day #she squints at him for a long time #’they volunteer’ she says eventually #neville shivers #muggles are HARDCORE
Including tags because oh my fucking god.
maybe i’m a goddamn bleeding heart hippie liberal but i’m totally down with paying an extra .50 cents for a thing of fries if the person who makes me those fries doesn’t have to work 3 jobs just to survive.
most studies show that prices would only have to go up by 1 to 3 cents in order to raise employee wages significantly
or, you know, the ceo’s could take pay cuts but that would be so hard for the poor multimillionaires
Okay, guys, I keep seeing all over my tumblr how much you all want shows with POCs and female characters and better yet female POCs! You tell me you want kick ass characters doing cool things who haven’t been sexualized into oblivion. You tell me you want shows that pass the Bechdale test. You tell me you want female characters that don’t just exist as props for man pain.
So why the hell aren’t you all watching Sleepy Hollow every single Monday night?
See, TV is a business, one that’s really hesitant about breaking out of a very specific set of characteristics that make it money. So, if you want more shows that look like Sleepy Hollow ones that are well written, snappy, treat every person on the cast (even the monsters) like human beings with full back stories and respectful interactions, you HAVE TO WATCH THOSE SHOWS. If you don’t watch them. If you let them whither away into single digit ratings, then you don’t get MORE of the kinds of casts and storylines Sleepy Hollow writes.
So, look, you don’t like horror shows, fine. You watched a few episodes and thought it was goofy. You were appalled at the level of historical anachronism and turned it off. Sure, there are reasons to not like Sleepy Hollow, but even if those things are true, turn the show on, hit mute, and go do something else for an hour. Because that’s how you get more shows with casts like Sleepy Hollow.
If shows like Sleepy Hollow can’t deliver ratings the TV people see that and go, ‘Good God, Bob! We need more cis-het-white-dudes treating women like blow up dolls, because obviously no one in the US is willing to watch a show that deviates from that set up.’
So, come on, turn on Sleepy Hollow, watch it, don’t, I don’t care, but turn it on so that the ratings go up and the guys in TV Land get the message that people will actually watch shows with lots of women and POCs and great stories where everyone gets a cool back story and it’s not all about the cis-het-white-guy.
so apparently the risk management people at my university have told my political science professor that his tardis door is in violation of blah blah blah because “people might think police are actually available in his office”
