Crows are scaryThey
use tools
Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
Have huge brains for birds
like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT.  They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows.  Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag.  But the nice guys with masks they left alone.  THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight.  THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.(q) 

Where as I want one as a pet now.

Why the fuck is that scary? That’s pretty cool if you ask me. Crows are awesome.

Bring on the Crowpocalypse

There’s also crows that have learned to not only use cars to help them crush nuts they want to eat, but they’ve learned that if they drop the nuts in a crosswalk and wait for the green pedestrian light, they can walk out and eat the nut without danger of being run over.

and this is why people claiming humans are the only intelligent species and therefore superior drive me absolutely nuts

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the Fuller Projection?
This map presents a world that is nearly contiguous and at accurate sizes and shapes to the continents. And there is no “correct” orientation for it (the directionality of north/south being arbitrary after all )
The downsides are that it cuts up Antarctica and distorts the size of oceans, which is bad news for sailors and penguin researchers, but for geography in general it’s AWESOME
(X)

Created by Buckminster Fuller, writer of a gajillion books, owner of a gajillion patents, and the man whose name gave us Buckyballs.

I love this for (at least) two reasons:
1) I feel like if extra-terrestrials ever approached our solar system, they would do so from either the top or bottom (as relative to Earth’s North Pole at least, itself being relative to what we decide to call “top”) so as to avoid collisions/close passes with asteroidal flotsam and cometary jetsam. They’d have a 50% chance of seeing Earth from (half of) this perspective, so we should understand what our world would look like from up/down there.
2) I really love the idea of a flat world where all corners are inhospitable prisons of ice and snow. Sci-fi premise unlocked.

This is not the Fuller Projection. This is.
This pictured above is the Peirce Quincuncial.
I’m just sayin’ since the Fuller Projection is my favorite, and the one pictured above certainly ain’t it.
And yeah, I have shoes with toes.

heatmor:

why does anyone even care about other people doing things that have no negative outcome? like let girls take selfies with starbucks!! let straight dudes wear weird clothes!! let gay people be as feminine or as masculine as they want!! the next time you find yourself getting annoyed at someone, ask yourself “is this disrespectful? is this harmful to me or anyone else?” if the answer is no, then let it go - you probably have bigger things to worry about anyways

We’re still unpacking in the new apartment.  Yesterday I found a storage box filled with old journals, and I found this entry from the summer I turned 16.  So amazing, adorable, embarrassing, wonderful.  This is my response, 8 years later.
