The male teacock’s extravagant handles evolved to attract the attention of the drabber-colored teahen. The males with the largest, glossiest, and most brilliantly colored handles will attract a small harem of females. Males compete only by display, and will not engage in actual battle for fear of chipping. 
The downside to the spectacular display by the males is that lugging around such a weight of crockery makes them more vulnerable to predators, particularly the aquatic crockpotodile, the teacock’s chief predator. - Ursula Vernon

 The smallrus is tiniest of the seal family, not much larger (and rather similiar in shape) to the garden slug. They prefer damp areas with large amounts of water, like well-watered gardens with fish ponds, and can often be seen sporting in puddles and bird baths, making their typical call (a sort of squeaky bellow.*) Any gardener is generally delighted to see the smallrus appear, as the occasional nibble of a leaf is more than made up for by their ability to keep down the number of mosquito larvae and other small aquatic nuisances.
This is so my ex-husband’s fault.
One day he was wandering around singing “I am the smallrus!”
"How big is a smallrus?" I asked.
"Very, very tiny."
"Awww."
"They’re bred as sock warmers. You can put your socks on the smallri to keep warm."
"AWWWWW!"
"They purr."
"AWWWWWWWWWWW!"
And just when I was thinking that I had misjudged this man for ten whole years, that he was capable of great depths of adorableness, that his capacity for cuteness was far beyond anything I’d guessed, and he’d merely been hiding it behind a facade of mild pervesion and non-sequitor—
"And they’re great with honey-mustard sauce!"
*sigh*

*Inhale a good lungful of helium and yell “GRONK!” and you’ve about got it.

Most of my Saturday was spent looking up stuff about Bina48.BINA48 is a project of Terasem Movement, Inc™ and is designed to test whether a person’s consciousness can be downloaded into a non-biological or nanotechnological body after combining detailed data about a person through the use of future consciousness software

A lesbian of color black lesbian (who is married to a trans woman) becomes the model for an ultra advanced AI system.This is huge.Other links: [x] [x] [x]

So lemme get this… the developer/CEO of the development company is a jewish trans lesbian woman and the highest paid female ceo in america, and this project is based on her wife, a black lesbian woman, and both are mothers with children from previous relationships who they have now each legally adopted???
this exists in the actual world and people still think sci fi can only be about straight cis vaguely-christian white men…….

okay!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes!!!!!!!! also, are they lookin for a sugar baby?

i am slain

Once again, truth outdoes fiction.
Also, read everything you can about Martine Rothblatt and Bina Aspen immediately.

Anonymous said: Hey idk if y'all knew but "aboriginal" is a slur. It means abnormal original. I just found out in my Pan African studies class when we were going over (I refuse to say his name) that classified us into "Caucasoid", "Mongoloid", "Negroid" (notice how the others are based on real places... this guy is the very reason we call ourselves white, black, brown, etc today). I'm glad he's dead.

It does? It’s in the appropriate terms for indigenous Australians list. I guess I’ll google it for more elaboration.

~Eon

It is not a slur when referring to Aboriginal or Indigenous Australians. But always capitalise the ‘A’ or ‘I’.

Also the word itself doesn’t have anything to do with abnormality - ‘ab origine’ means ‘from the beginning’ in Latin.
