There’s no joke any fandom can make that the teams behind your favorite shows can’t top or make sicker by a factor of 10.

laughing at how CNN went into one of the looted businesses in Ferguson and spoke to the owner. the reporter started asking all these leading questions that were clearly setting up answers that expressed anger that their businesses were broken into. 

The owner was like “actually I just want justice for Mike Brown im not worried about material things”

hey heres a cool bug

image

its called the spiny flower mantis - a variety of flower mantis that lives in sub-saharan africa, and grows up around 4-5 inches in length

like most mantids they go through several stages, changing their appearance gradually with each molt - from the black bodies of the newly hatched, to the thorny raised abdomen of the nymph below

image

until finally arriving at adulthood, where the both the females (which are slightly larger) and males feed off of moths and other insects that cant distinguish them from the flowers and foliage they live near and get their name from

image

but the real thing i wanna mention is their defense mechanism - when these insects are startled, they flare up their absolutely gorgeous wingspots in an attempt to scare off whatever dumb thing tried to eat this cactus bugimage

apparently the reaction depends on the temperment of the individual insect - breeders have reported that some of them are pretty calm, but others flash the spots at every little motion that freaks em out. i probably would too if i had giant eyes painted on my back and everything was a thousand goddamn times larger than i was

image

just a pretty damn cool bug overall

In 1585, the townspeople of Annecy, Savoy, France, became alarmed over an apple that gave out a “great and confused noise.” Believing it to be full of demons, they pushed the apple into a river.

i do not have anything to add to this tbh
