I’ve recently decided to freeze myself to -273℃. My friends think I’ll die, but I’ll be 0K.
somebody just said ‘i believe in sherlock holmes’
i keep thinking i’d get annoyed with the shots they take at bbc’s sherlock but i don’t even mind
A CROW TRIED TO GO IN OUR CLASSROOM AND HE HAD A PEN
yes hello i am here to learn geometries
That crow is more prepared than some of my students.
You’ve all just like, completely skipped over the possibility that this crow has seen people using pens in this room, found one, and is trying to return it. There’s been videos of crows picking up sweet wrappers and stuff and placing them in bins after seeing humans put their litter in bins. I really do believe that this crow is trying to return the pen and that is ADORABLE AS HELL.
THEY ARE SO SMART I LOVE THEM
Crows are thought to be self aware by some scientists. Its perfectly possible the crow wants to return the pen to humans. Knowing it belongs to humans.
Corvids. Who KNOWS. :)
Another cool crow deal: Once, when trying to assess if crows could reason and use tools, scientists had two crows who didn’t know each other each take a wire from a table (one was hooked, one was straight) and try to grab meat from a bottle with it. The crows could see each other, though they had separate bottles. Only the straight wire worked for this, so they hypothesized that if crows could reason, the second trial would have the two crows fighting over the straight wire. The second trial started and, to the surprise of the scientists, the two crows both went for the bent wire, one held it down and the other unbent it. They both got meat out of their bottles. They came to a peaceful solution without verbal communication. Crows are probably smarter than we are.
Crows are definitely smarter than humans
somebody once told me that ‘hate everyone’ by say anything reminded them of me and i think that’s a very good indicator of what i’m like on an average day, so if any of you have opinions me that tip the scale to positive, you may want to think again.
the discovery that fake blood stains skin really easily casts the ‘out damned spot’ scene in macbeth in a very different light.
Today’s Sketch_Dailies was gryphon and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to draw the amazing Potoo again.
i was coming home from rehearsal and this cat walked up to me
she was tabbyish, with extra toes (polydactyl) and she couldn’t have been more than six or seven months old and she was the sweetest thing. i sat on the sidewalk for ten or fifteen or twenty minutes petting her until her owner came back.
apparently she got out when he was going for lunch and he hadn’t been able to find her, so he was pretty happy to see that she was not only right by his house, but someone was looking after her too.
i love making friends with strange animals.
Forget cat cafes. Or black cat cafes. Or penguin bars. Japan’s latest novelty cafe is the “fukurou cafe” (フクロウカフェ), or the “owl cafe.”
Owl cafes like Fukurou no Mise (“Owl Shop”) and Tori no Iru Cafe (“The Cafe with Birds”) started getting noticed online in Japan late last year.
This summer saw more owl cafes open, and currently there are owl cafes like Fukurou Sabou (“Owl Teahouse”) in Tokyo, Owl Family in Osaka, and Crew, another owl cafe in Osaka, among others.
omg must go live here o.o
I need to go here!

it’s a bit annoying seeing all the generalizations about ‘asexual people’ because i’m pretty sure most, or at the very least, a very large and significant portion of asexual people are not aromantic. i doubt anyone can dispute that asexual people have the highest rate of sexual and romantic orientations that don’t match up, and that can create a lot of very different experiences in a single community. there’s a lot of identities that can intersect there, y’know?
but it’s always just ‘asexual people.’ ‘bisexual people.’ nobody really says ‘homosexual people’ but we all know that when they say gay they mean ‘homosexual AND romantic’
it really shows which orientation is more valuable and relevant in the case of a sexual/romantic mismatch, don’t you think?
