Evil but Cuddly

I'm not sharing my actual photo on Tumblr, are you MAD?!

This article covers a variation on quantum mechanics based on fluid dynamics (the basic idea is that the fabric of space-time is in fact a fluid and that quantum physics are powered by fluid dynamics) that has the potential to challenge accepted theory in the field.

Fascinating in its own right, the article is also a brilliant example of science at work. Even when a scientific theory is widely accepted and rooted in almost a century of work and consensus, it’s always possible for it to be challenged—or even demonstrated to be wrong. Science doesn’t dictate what threshold of evidence you personally feel compelled to change your own opinion, but it requires you to always keep your mind open to possibility.

With the USA’s track-record in the region, what could possibly go wrong ?

Oh good.  Because this tactic has been working so well for us since the 1970s.

Unfortunate for the books, but speaks loads about the quality of some fan fics

You have no idea how many

HELL YES I HAVE…

Ayn Rand was published. I read three of her books. So yes, there is better Fan Faction.

Chigg, why.  No.  You’re my friend, don’t hurt yourself that way.

I read an anecdote from someone whose African Grey didn’t particularly get along with her Amazon parrot, Paco. One night she was preparing cornish hens for dinner, while the grey hung out with her in the kitchen. He got a closer look at one of the hens, looked his mama dead in the eyes and asked, “Paco?” Then he laughed.

that is one sadistic bird 

I am slightly afraid now.

I love birds?

I 100% believe both of these stories.

Fascinating.

Why do Fantasy races suffer from this?

I think Dwarf should have dialects based on region and such.

Elves with a base language, sub language, and one for speaking to ‘Not Elf’ people.

Don’t get me started on Halflings: Region, Band, written, trade, and some they just make up to fuck around.. which they share with Gnomes.

Because unlike in real life, fantasy races often have actual for really real Gods in their world. If the God who made the concept of a tree tells you to call it a fuckin Douglas Fir, then you call it a Douglas Fir.

Also because unless you’re Tolkien (whose dwarves and elves did in fact have a few languages each), you really do have to stop the world-building at some point and get on with writing the plot or you’re just never going to be finished.

It would be nice to see now and again, though.

I love this woman no end.

Can she get a BAFTA for her BAFTA speech?

King Vulture - Sarcoramphus papa

The King Vulture, Sarcoramphus papa (Falconiformes - Cathartidae), is a species of vulture found in the southern part of Mexico and throughout Central and South America to northern Argentina.

The most noticeable difference between king vultures and other vultures is that they are largely covered with white plumage. King vultures are large birds, their wingspan can reach up 1.98 m. Their bare head, neck, beak and muttle are red, orange and yellow, with very striking eyes that are straw, white or silver in color. Their beaks have a hooked tip and cutting edges, which are very strong. There are no differences between the males and females of this species.

It’s so cute!  At first I thought it was a really weird-looking toy vulture, but no!

Although it looks like it may indeed be fluffed up in that first photo.  Fluffed up vulture. <3

Raising a child is like taking care of someone who’s on way too many shrooms, while you yourself are on a moderate amount of shrooms. I am not confident in my decisions, but I know you should not be eating a mousepad.
