Life gets about 90% better when one realizes that birds are dinosaurs. Chicken nuggets are dinosaur meat. Tofurkey is fake dinosaur meat.Your pillow has dinosaur feather stuffing. Eagles are flying velociraptors. You probably had dinosaur eggs for breakfast. If you hang up a feeder full of seeds, tiny dinosaurs will visit your yard.

In which Snoop Dogg doesn’t give a fuck about your gender policing, and 50 Cent continues to be way too concerned about the sexuality of other male rappers.
A T-REX WITH FEATHERS, IS WAY MORE TERRIFYING THAN THE LEATHERY BASTARDS THAT I WAS USED TOO. I guess I like to think we’re revenging the families of its victims, by eating it’s descendants.
The flying reptile, Pterodactylus, as imagined once by the outcast researcher David Peters. David Peters puts images of fossils through Photoshop features and claims to see features no one else has been able to observe.
Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.
Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.
Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.
Orange Punch (Dodona egeon, Riodinidae)
There are three surefire elements that will pretty much ensure the presence of certain species of butterflies:
1. shallow running water such as a rocky creek,
2. bright sunshine,
3. sadly, human rubbish and refuse.
This former creekside picnic spot was awash with mainly Riodinidae and Lycaenid butterflies basking, indulging in fluids and minerals from the creek bed and relishing traces of human indulgences on abandoned food wrappers and packaging.
