This is the most accurate gif of Florida I have ever seen.

 ”What the fuck?” 

She’s not even scared, she’s just mad and confused.

baby gators are basically confused sharp bunnies who wander into other people’s pools for a dip and some sunbathing and might gnaw on u. mommas are the scary ones.

confused sharp bunnies

i’d argue that you don’t even have to worry about mommas.  alligators are literally stoners.  like don’t fuck with their stuff and they’ll just chill and leave you alone.

i grew up in florida. i was riding my bike once and managed to fall over and into a swamp full of gators and they just stared at me like ‘what the fuck did you do that for?’ they are some of the calmest creatures ever.

Alligators have not evolved in two hundred million years.  They’re too lazy.

Sorry to break the news, but you did not report the person behind that blog. Instead, you reported me. And I am still suffering the consequences.

I did not run that blog. Yes, they used my image. All my pictures from Facebook and Instagram, my statuses, even the captions. And then interspersed them with animal abuse images, fantasies about beastiality, other fucking disgusting sentiments.

You people found my Facebook, where I listed my wildlife rescue group. You didn’t think, for a moment, that it was odd that none of these abuse fantasies appeared on Facebook. A girl who was apparently willing to put her face, her location, the names of her family her local fucking vet clinic on her zoophilic Tumblr page, strangely had none of these thoughts on a just-as-public Facebook page.

Not one single person thought, “This is a bit odd, maybe I should reach out to this person just to confirm that it’s them.”

You people, high on some fantastical idea of justice, called the authorities. And I did not even know about the existence of the blog until the RSPCA showed up on my doorstep one night.

THEY, thankfully, had the sense to believe me. As soon as they showed me the page and I broke down in tears, they got the idea. So they told me to go to the police. The police palmed me off to ACORN (a cybercrime body) who dismissed the case because “nobody in the images was under the age of 18.”

Meanwhile, Tumblr had taken the page down, only for it to resurface again last year.

I then pursued a civil case. Emailed lawyers in my local city. They advised me only to take it to Tumblr, who shut down the page a second time. No further action was taken.

I never received another call from wildlife rescue because I was unable to prove that I did not run this disgusting blog. Wildlife is my biggest passion in the world and I may never work in that industry until I can clear my name.

So I messaged this page - report-a-predator. They told me to prove it - fair enough. So I sent them EVERYTHING. The screenshots, my emails to ACORN and SAPOL and Tumblr and the lawyers. They did not respond. I emailed them again, begging them to clear my name. They did not respond.

I am furious. I am fucking enraged that this post even still exists on their page, because the actions of this so-called “justice group” has directly impacted the life of an innocent person and they will do nothing to acknowledge it. Not even respond to a simple email. Not even take down the incriminating post.

I know my blog is tiny, I know nobody follows it, I know this will probably never be seen. But I am not going to be silent.

If you’re ever caught up in a whirlwind of pseudo-justice, maybe check the facts first.

my utopia

The drag queen from this photo has spoken up about the photo.

I won’t speak for all liberals, but I’d like to see a future where it isn’t a big deal for a woman in full modesty garb to sit next to a drag queen in NYC. It’s become a bit of a sensation, but her and I were just existing. The freedom to simply be yourself in a sea of people who aren’t like you is a freedom we all deserve.

The central irony is that this isn’t some hypothetical future–it’s just present day reality. This is a picture of two ordinary people going about their normal lives despite how haters want to politicize it lmao. So the underlying message is not “future liberals want” it’s “people conservatives want to eradicate”

the underlying message is not “future liberals want” it’s “people conservatives want to eradicate”

Frage: Heutzutage unterscheidet man Hunderte psychischer Störungen. Sie behaupten, dass drei vielleicht ausreichen. Können Sie das näher erläutern?

Denken wir an Depressionen. Darüber weiß ich am meisten. So gut wie alle Behandlungen für Depressionen helfen ebenfalls bei Angststörungen. Wir sehen auch auf genetischer Ebene sehr viele Überschneidungen. Wenn die Behandlung aber dieselbe ist, warum muss man dann verschiedene Diagnosen voneinander unterscheiden? Mir erscheint es als sinnvoller, nur ein paar große Problemgebiete zu unterscheiden und in diesen die Behandlung für eine bestimmte Person anzupassen.

Jeder hat seine persönliche Anfälligkeit. Manche reagieren auf Stress, indem sie sich zurückziehen. Das nennen wir „Internalisierung“. Andere reagieren nach außen, etwa indem sie Ärger verursachen. Das ist „Externalisierung“. Wieder andere reagieren psychotisch, das heißt, dass sie an merkwürdige Dinge glauben oder in der ganzen Welt eine Verschwörung sehen. Auch das kann so weit führen, dass das Funktionieren eines Menschen eingeschränkt wird.

Ich bin der Überzeugung, dass die Unterscheidung in diese drei Gruppen hinreichend ist: internalisierende, externalisierende und psychotische Störungen; hinreichend für ein globales Bild darüber, was jemandes Anfälligkeiten sind. Dabei kann jemand natürlich mehr als nur eine haben. Anschließend will ich nicht allein über Symptome sprechen, sondern auch über Ursachen. Woher kommen die Probleme? Aber auf persönlichem Niveau, für jedes Individuum einzeln.

Alex (1976 – September 6, 2007) had a vocabulary of over 100 words, but was exceptional in that he appeared to have understanding of what he said. For example, when Alex was shown an object and was asked about its shape, color, or material, he could label it correctly. He could understand that a key was a key no matter what its size or color, and could figure out how the key was different from others. One day, he asked what color he was, and learned “grey” after being told the answer six times. This made him the first non-human animal to have ever asked an existential question. [x]

Alex’s last words were also “You be good, see you tomorrow. I love you.” [x] 

These were the same words that Alex would say every day when his owner left the lab.

“You be good, see you tomorrow. I love you.”


a parrot actually said these words, and meant it, before he died.

I’m getting choked up

Alex the parrot is actually one of my favorite animal intelligence stories/examples. What a smart birb.

Why am I emotional right now?

“He kidnaps, she screams”: words associated with gender in Wikipedia plot descriptions

by variance_explained

In linguistics we call this “social gender”, which is basically whether a word has a feminine or masculine connotation. This kind of thing can be hard to intuit, since there are no hard and fast rules. Obvious examples include words like “nurse”, which may be technically gender neutral, but it’s got such a strong feminine connotation that many people will clarify “male nurse”. Less obvious examples are words like “muscles”, which all humans have, but the default interpretation is like, a manly guy with bulging biceps.

Many many words have social gender that’s difficult to notice, either because of the natural struggle to see gender, or because it’s just that subtle. So a corpus analysis like this is exciting because it gives concrete data on words we might not have thought twice about!!
