The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
Just an update as I havent been on for a while - I’m in hospital again.
My m.e has crashed in a big way and the migraines are constant but there might be a reason for that: my spinal fluid pressure was found to be right on the highest number for safe when they did a lumbar puncture yesterday. There’s nothing that they’re going to do about it but it’s nice to know.
So now I’m waiting for them to sort out all the new care and equipment before I can go home. On the plus side, I might be getting my electric wheelchair sooner than I thought!
The last line “Row, Row, Row, Your Boat.”
“Life is but a dream.”
Really? That’s quite the existentialist mind-fuck to throw in at the end of a nursery rhyme.
I waited patiently for this post
WAIT. ITS NOT ‘LIFE’S A BUTTER DREAM??’
No it isn’t, how long have you thought that?
What the fuck is a butter dream
I’m so excited because I found out today that this little guy exists
He’s a Western Blind Snake and he looks like a very shiny earthworm
HE LOOKS SO HAPPY
There are three species here. The first two photos are, as far as I can tell, quite rightly identified as the western blind snake, Leptotyphlops humilis. The third photo is of Rhinotyphlops lalandei, Delalande’s Beaked Blind Snake. Note the differences in the scales and the presence of a scale between the ocular and nasal scale in this species, compared to the nasal scale being in contact with the ocular scale in the first two photos. The last snake is also a different species - the photo was taken in Western Australia. L. humilis, is endemic to the United States.
Because commentary from our resident herpetologist basically leaves me with the same expression as that last snake.
I love the hp movies but it is so painful because I want charlie weasley, I want peeves, I want a kinder, accurate ron and an unperfect, accurate hermione. I want all the little sassy, clever, lines left out in the movies and all the really important details that were left out.
Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
