This is actually a test showing how sponges pump water through themselves for filter feeding!
They simply colored the water around them so you could easily see the process :D

Sponges will never cease to fascinate me!

Fucking awesome!

It looks like I’m going through a growth spurt at age 25.  This is quite possibly one of the most painful things I’ve ever experienced (aside from running a finger through a printing press).  This isn’t supposed to happen!  It’s not like an unknown cause of chronic pain is bad enough by itself.  

Also, all pairs of jeans have immediately become skinny jeans.

NO YOU DON’T GET IT THIS IS HILARIOUS BECAUSE THAT’S THE “FEAR NOT” GESTURE IN BUDDHIST ART. THEY’RE LITERALLY ON A SCARY RIDE AND JESUS IS FREAKING OUT AND BUDDHA’S JUST SITTING THERE ALL LIKE “FEAR NOT” AND IT’S AMAZING.

windkonig:

instead of getting a kid a long term commitment pet I think parents should introduce kids to responsibility by starting with bugs. raise a caterpillar into a moth, take care of some pill bugs for a bit, feed a grasshopper for a few days. that way we could really reduce the amount of turtles, bunnies, lizards, frogs etc being wrongly cared for. let’s face it, kids don’t keep their attention on things for very long. so get a short term pet instead.

This is exactly what I did as a kid.  I learned a lot through observing yard invertebrates than I did through books.

They let it go and it flew away just fine, so we’re wondering how she caught it.

update:

update: she caught a squirrel today

She is gonna rule the world one day with this power

Is she a Disney princess?

What?!  She’s the next Steve Irwin, but instead of catching animals they’re just going to show up.

So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….


Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!” 





The police officers then led the young woman away and began talking with her privately in low tones. When the paramedics FINALLY got there I was surprised at the hostility they showed towards the young man. One blonde female EMT (shown in the photo) suggested that he couldn’t be THAT hurt if he was able to walk from the place where he was struck to the sidewalk where he finally collapsed. White bystanders commented several times about “What that poor girl must be going through.” I was the only one who commented on what the young man must be going through, what, with his mangled leg and all. I am absolutely positive that in the end “that poor girl” will be absolved of all wrongdoing and be able to go on her merry way. After all, she just ran a red light and slammed her car into the body of some black kid on a bike, right?And people wonder why black people are so angry and want to break shit.
















friendly reminder that studies have shown that white people do not empathize with Black people and we (including medical personel) also think Black people feel less pain

wtf

This makes me angry in so many ways.

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
