what if giraffes lived underwater
what a majestic creature
It would explain nessie
Oh my God. I have been waiting literally over a year to use this gif, and before I do, I want to thank you for the opportunity.

something went horribly wrong with my star wars game. One of the NPCs was just chillin like this.
Nothing could make me more curious about your taxidermy than this.
I need this as a t-shirt as “zoologically improbable and/or terrifying to small children” sums me up.
Finally I know what I want inscribed on my tombstone when I die.
I remember the news article, this is the lion that was removed:
THAT IS FUCKING TERRIFYING
OH MY GOD THAT IS HORRIFIC
I’M LAUGHING SO HARD OH MY GOD
I can’t remember the last time I actually laughed this hard at something on tumblr. Oh my shit.
this is from an article someone posted on my facebook.
Saturn’s rings are about 175,000-miles across, but just 3,200-feet thick. Think about that for a moment. The ratio is mind-boggling. If you had a model of Saturn that was 3 feet wide, its rings would be roughly 10,000 times thinner than a razor blade.
So I went to the Philippines for the last week of February to meet someone I had only talked to at work (she works at our sister site in manilla doing chase phone support).
It was, hands down one of the best experiences of my life.
To start,in addition to the person I specifically went to see, two of her coworkers joined us. I quickly came to like them and their families, who accepted me as one of their own without a second thought, even though I hadn’t met them before or spoken with them even at work.
I had a really great time discussing religion with Crystal. Christianity in the PI is treated very differently from in the US. Particularly in Crystals case, the emphasis is on love and caring and faith, not hate or judgement or doctrine or ritual. It was refreshing, and certainly went a long way renewing my own faith in humanities ability to be rational.
Lovely Cyndy’s daughter Kai is probably one of the most delightfully intelligent and spirited children I’ve met in a long time. I’m going to be getting her books on magic tricks in hopes I can convince her to become a spunky lady magician and to show up all the guys in the business. She’d be amazing.
Paulo drove us around for the first several days, and helped translate, negotiate, and generally keep me out of trouble. He also helped me pick out wines to bring home to share with my gamers. I think we would have been lost without Paulo’s assistance!
The land itself is just incredible. The mountains, the plants, the sky, the beaches. Everything is just stunning. I could easily spend my life there.
I know it’s easy to be spoiled in america. Things that are expected that is rather unique to us: toilet paper in public bathrooms, large tips on services, credit cards accepted everywhere, traffic to be simple and orderly. These are not the standard elsewhere, and it’s humbling to be reminded. Most importantly, it’s easy to feel like we need tons of stuff and tons of space to store our stuff. My friends have little stuff, and little space. It’s at a premium in the cities in the Philippines, and the rural areas don’t really have the cash flow to afford large comfortable houses.
My goal is to someday be able to move to the PI and try to improve life for those around me wherever I can and however I can. Providing access to more educational toys, improving houses, creating opportunities. It’s the least I can do for a people who are amazingly kind and welcoming in the face of all the horrible things that happen in the world around us.
I did see an australian spotted jellyfish at the beach while island hopping. You can see that video here
At the floating restaurant Crystal and Cyndy and I played with some over excited koi.
