The rhinoceros is the 2-largest land mammal, behind the elephant. These stocky, Land Rover-sized vegetarians once numbered over 500,000, but they have been reduced to about 29,000 in recent years, largely due to humans’ appetite for their signature appendage: the horn.
i can’t believe it ?? i hit 500 followers ?? what a concept
and instead of being original i decided to make one of these, as I’ve never really made one
and not all of these people are mutuals, so sorry if this annoys you !
and if you aren’t on here and you feel like you should feel free to yell at me, i probably made a mistake
mutuals are bolded and people i consider friends, or who have a+ blogs are italicized
The story of how Harry Potter single-handedly lost Gryffindor the House Cup while attempting to have a “normal” year at Hogwarts. Featuring Harry’s suspicious nature turned up to eleven again, a new DADA teacher who is so not here for Harry’s fame, multiple detentions, Slytherins being sneaky, Hufflepuffs being sneakier, and the mystery of Draco Malfoy’s hoodie.
Apparently I accidentally deleted this rec or something, so here you have it again because this is hilarious.
Well-written, lovely characterizations, I loved the new DADA teacher who is just so done with these two. Harry’s theories about Draco’s sweater are ridiculous. Also you don’t wanna miss out on drunk!Harry! Please read, you’ll love it!
The Italian front of World War I was one of the most unique battlegrounds in history. When it comes to World War I, most people envision muddy trenches, the Italian Front of WWI was mostly fought in the Alps. Thus, entire armies were fighting on steep cliffs and frozen glaciers, often thousands of feet above sea level. It was not uncommon for both the Italians and Austro-Hungarians/Germans to carve large and intricate ice fortresses within Alpine glaciers, complete with machine guns, artillery ports, miles and miles of tunnels and rooms.
One of the largest ice fortresses was a complex created by the Austrian Army and designed by Austrian engineer Leo Handl. Called “The City of Ice”, the fortress consisted of a complex of buildings and fortifications which were carved directly out of the ice of Marmolada glacier on Mount Marmolada in the northwestern corner of Italy. The complex featured 5 miles of tunnels, enough barracks to house 1,500 troops, a number of artillery and machine gun ports, trenches, a cafeteria, a chapel, an armory and a saloon. The Italians had a similar size ice fortress called cittá del ghiaccio.
The Italian Front of World War I was an especially brutal war, where just as many men died due to storms, exposure, and avalanches as did bullets and bombs. In one fateful night in 1917, massive storm caused several avalanches, killing up to ten thousand men. Today, melting Alpine glaciers are revealing the detritus and frozen corpses of World War I.
I still can’t believe I reached this milestone. I want to thank all of you for welcoming me into your community.
I’ve made great friends and met many wonderful people through this mess of a blog. You add so much light and happiness to my life. Thank you for being the greatest :’)

Last night a LaFerrari was sold at auction for $7 Million to benefit the reconstruction of Central Italy in the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes of 2016. All proceeds from the auction will go toward the reconstruction efforts in the areas affected by the earthquake. The LaFerrari is number 500, the last one built and boasts a unique livery with a red exterior with a white line on the hood and rear windshield. A small Italian flag on the hood serves as a reminder that this is a gift by Ferrari to its home country.
another year has come and gone. i started writing anastasia on a whim three years ago in november of 2013. i didn’t know then if i would stick with the muse or not. it started because i loved the movie and the character, but it grew into something much bigger and much more personal over time. i’ve dedicated hours upon hours of research and writing to this muse, to both the history and the fictional side of things. i love anastasia and i love all of YOU who have made the journey with me and this muse.
in two years, i managed to reach over two-thousand followers, and now, a year and a reboot later, i’m a little under 500 away from that number again. it’s insane, and incredible and i have so many of you to thank for that. i couldn’t end this year without giving a proper shoutout to all the wonderful blogs and muns who have made my experience with anastasia so enjoyable.
i know i haven’t been as active as i used to be. my life has gone through a lot of changes in the past year, but i’m incredibly grateful and humbled by the amount of you that have chosen to stick around and write or talk with me despite my fluctuation in activity. i love you guys, really.
so, here’s to you !! i hope 2016 treated you well & i hope 2017 treats you even better.
[ That’s an unpleasantly familiar voice. And not even so much in that there’s bad memories attached to it, just that it… means that something’s gone terribly wrong again. But, what, he’s just going to turn around and let tiny Tord know what a bad thing this is? Hell no. Tom’s going to play it right up and keep the little weirdo happy. ]
[ Of course, he turns away from his drink just long enough to see Tord eat shit and he nearly has a heart attack in the process. ] Holy sh-! [ No, no! His mom always told him this. If you freak out, the kid’s going to freak out, too. Just… play it cool. ]
[ Tom forces a grin and kneels down to Tord’s level, scooping him up into his arms before standing back up again. His tooth was gone last time, too, right? ] You’re just gonna let the floor take your blood like that? You gotta be a little more willing to hang onto that stuff, kiddo.[ He pulls a napkin off the roll and carefully starts to dab at the cut on his lip. ] Where the heck did you come from?
Miles that the Proclaimers would walk for you twice because they are just that fond of you, days of Summer, layers of cloud between here and that other sun, soldiers in the Spartan army at the battle of Thermopylae (inflation-adjusted), S’s and P’s in the S&P 500, you (approximately), thousands in half a million, rats that you are maybe not ten metres away from, English pounds for the purchase of a shed of moderate quality, remaining hours, mystical paparazzi on the tail of the wild hunt who have just checked into a local hotel packed into six trenchcoats and would appreciate if you didn’t tell anyone pls thx, clocks in that room that almost nobody is able to enter, ants in the jam, cats in the world’s biggest cradle, thoughts in one semikilothunk, problems experienced by 5.05 Jay-Z’s.
