Dinosaur trackways uncovered in Canada suggest tyrannosaurs hunted in packs

The collective noun is a terror of tyrannosaurs: a pack of the prehistoric predators, moving and hunting in numbers, for prey that faced the fight of its life.
That tyrannosaurs might have hunted in groups has long been debated by dinosaur experts, but with so little to go on, the prospect has remained firmly in the realm of speculation.
But researchers in Canada now claim to have the strongest evidence yet that the ancient beasts did move around in packs.

The ABC's of Avatar: The Last Airbender 

This avatar side blog has been going strong for about 2 years now and somehow I reached 4,000+ followers a couple weeks ago! For me, this is a pretty big accomplishment so I wanted to do something different to celebrate. Instead of making icons, a follow forever, psd packs, etc, I decided to make this. A gif set that captures the essence of Avatar: The Last Airbender, a show we all fell in love with almost 10 years ago and still love to this day. Avatar was such a big part of my childhood and it feels like all I’ve done is blink and now I’m an adult starting college this fall! But ya know what? I’m ready to start my own grand adventure and who knows, maybe I’ll end up changing the world like my buddy Aang. (;

To all my lovely followers, this one’s for you!

18.05.2014I learned yesterday that when you see a bee on the ground that isn’t moving, it’s not necessarily dead, it’s probably just dead tired from carrying lots of pollen and needs re-energising. So if you mix a tiny bit of water with some sugar and let it drink it will give it the boost it needs to continue on its way. Bizarrely, this exact thing happened today! I found a knackered bee, mixed up some sugar water, gave it a drink and watched it guzzle and guzzle then suddenly come back to life. It was amazing! Thank you patrick, it was an excellent tip that i’ll never forget and will continue to pass on to others!

  • Woman: I'm smart
  • Patriarchy: Well you're probably ugly then
  • Woman: I'm creative
  • Patriarchy: You mean unattractive right?
  • Woman: I have all these incredible accomplishments
  • Patriarchy: Yeah but look how ugly you looked doing them
  • Woman: I have value
  • Patriarchy: Not if you're ugly lol
  • Woman: I'm conventionally-attractive & posted selfies on my blog
  • Patriarchy: I'm so sick of these empty-headed chicks only caring about their looks. Just because you are attractive and get attention from men doesn't mean you are special or deserve respect. Why don't you read a book or do something productive with your life you dumb slut

it always disappointed me that Monster Girls are an anime porn thing rather than something used to explore the way society and the media dehumanises women, but oh well

shout out to all my fellow monsters

I am upset at this in quite a few ways.

Nothing directly stated.  In point of fact, I too, am a monster.  I live every day as a monster.  I do my daily monster routine.  Go shopping for monster groceries.  Do monster chores.  Monster bathe.  Do monster odd jobs around the house.  Go for monster walks.

Let me ask though.  Have you ever called someone a neckbeard?  Of course you have.  I’m sure you’ve flung that insult around like candy at a Halloween parade.  In this place of monsters and evil and us-versus-them-isms, it’s hard not to.  I mean, look at them.  They say mean things and LOOK AT HOW UGLY THEY ARE.

So that is what you do.  That is what we all do.  When someone wounds us we make monsters out of them too.  Look at that shitlord huh?  Boy what a neckbeard VIRGIN LOSER.  Believe me.  I should know.  I’ve been called it so many times for disagreeing with these opinions.  And why do I disagree with these opinions?

Because I don’t think that these are monsters.  I don’t see monsters at all.  I don’t see a world of monsters.  Not even from the people who call you or I monsters.  Even though you call me a monster and I think it’s wrong, I don’t see you as a monster.  Someone told me on 4chan something and I refused to believe him at the time, but it gave me great hope.  He didn’t see good or evil.  He saw pain.  And like I said, at that time, I didn’t believe him either and I don’t think you will believe me either.  But that’s neither here nor there.  Because I believe him now.  No matter what you think of them, or of me, I don’t believe in monsters.  These are people who are hurting and say things out of hurt.  Maybe they were hurt and they see their pain in you and want to admonish their pain through you.  How dare you not feel the same pain they felt for the same reason.  Everyone should have to feel what they felt if they had to feel it.

And so too does it go with you and most of the community here that I have seen.  “Oh but these misogynists DESERVE to be hurt.  They DESERVE to be called these things.  They don’t DESERVE tolerance.”  And you make more little monsters.  And they will make more monsters.  And we will have a world of monsters.  And people will go on believing in monsters for as long as there is a world to believe in monsters.  That’s ok.  We shouldn’t tolerate intolerance from MONSTERS.  We shouldn’t HAVE to treat them like we would ourselves.  We should treat PEOPLE equally.

Not monsters. 

We will drive ourselves to extinction and breed a race of monsters and the last men will die alone believing there is no such thing.

In more real terms and in less poetic drivel and nonsense:

I see this exact same behavior towards me and, well, to be blunt: men every day.  Not a person says a thing about it.  In point of fact, it usually comes from people identical to yourself, if not from you yourself exactly I would be severely surprised.  If I chastise, it’s out of compassion, sympathy and empathy.  Not hate or anger.  Though I’d be lying if I didn’t feel a little upset at reading this; since it seems you’re a little oblivious to the way I see the community lash out and make the same comments back at other people.  I see it and hear it all the time from the tumblr community.  I’m not even overweight.  However I will make the point more trenchant and clear by saying I fully anticipate the following insults to be thrown back at me; a list of insults that have already been thrown my way, mind you.  Nothing that hasn’t already been said a million times.

  • Fedora
  • neckbeard
  • virgin
  • loser
  • beta
  • shitlord (by the way, I want to raise a point about this; lord is strictly male, by all definitions.  Just thought I’d point that out.)

And what I get from other people doesn’t bother me as well.  I don’t mind.  I’m a big boy and this is the standard fare I get day in and day out both here and at 4chan.  It’s all the same really.  The only thing that bothers me is the hypocrisy.  The hypocrisy of advocating of equal treatment…While at the same time crying about that treatment that you dole out to others.  No matter the slight, is it really fair for you to call this treatment that you receive unfair while at the same time giving that treatment to others? 

It’s my belief that if you call a treatment unfair, than it is unfair.  Not to you, not to anybody.   If it’s not ok to be done to you, it’s not ok to do.  You can’t rationalize it away.  Unfair is unfair.  Wrong is wrong.  You can’t simply handwave away someone else’s feelings because you dislike or even hate them.  What they did is irrelevant to my morals and how I uphold them.  If they do wrong that does not permit me to violate my ethical and moral standards.  If I do wrong, it doesn’t matter what they did or not.  Then I have done wrong.  Two wrongs do not make a right; this is a logical axiom as well. 

But those are my morals.  And, I don’t know if they are yours.  So I can’t force my morals on you.  I can only furrow my brow as a monster and express my distaste at your opinion and await the inevitable garbage that you pelt at me.  I won’t strike back.  I won’t call a horde or a mob of friends and followers; I have neither.  Restating:  A world in which monsters believe in monsters creates a world of monsters.  I do not believe in them. 

Wanna make a monster? Take the parts of yourself that make you uncomfortable—your weaknesses, bad thoughts, vanities, and hungers—and pretend they’re across the room. It’s too ugly to be human. It’s too ugly to be you. Children are afraid of the dark because they have nothing real to work with. Adults are afraid of themselves. -Richard Siken, Black Telephone

As it turns out though…

I was the monster at the end of the book all along.

oh my fucking god did you really just try to derail my post about society’s unfair standards of female beauty to be about people being mean to you about your fedora

and spend about twelve thousand paragraphs doing so

holy fucking shit
