77 inches

Thomas Houseago is vanguard in his approach to sculpture’s original subject, the human body. Utilizing mediums associated with classical and modernist sculpture—such as carved wood, clay, plaster, and bronze—as well as less traditional materials like rebar and hemp, Houseago builds monumental figures rife with the traces of their making. 

 Happy Birthday to artist Thomas Houseago born today, April 12th in Leeds, England.

I just created a full PDF with 20 pages about housing hamsters for my portuguese rescue project, but I believe some people is reacting badly to it, as I increased the minimum size from 620 square inches to 800 square inches, I am kinda stressed about that, people may start to get nasty because of it, but we must understand that information is always updating and we should follow it. 

The big problem is that I live on a country where having a hamster living on a 77 square inches cage is common and totally normal, our law is horrible, according to it, as long as the hamster can move, the cage is fine, and I’m the only one working to change that over here, it’s just too hard and stressful for me to work alone, I feel like that annoying person who no one likes sometimes. 
I’ve been called crazy so many times, heard the classic “it’s just a rat” so many times, it’s just so…ugh, I don’t even know what to call it, it’s frustrating. 

I seriously hate portuguese people when it comes to small pets (if you are a responsible portuguese small pet owner, this is not for you ♥). 

Robinson gets statue at Dodger Stadium

He was the first black man to play in baseball’s major leagues, ending six decades of racial segregation, and a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Fittingly, Jackie Robinson, who died in 1972, is the first to be honoured with a statue at Dodger Stadium.

It will be unveiled Saturday on the 70th anniversary of his debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Two years ago on Jackie Robinson Day, owner and chairman Mark Walter suggested a sculpture belonged at Dodger Stadium of the six-time All-Star second baseman who starred when the team was in Brooklyn.

“He just felt it was an idea whose time had come,” said Janet Marie Smith, the team’s senior vice president of planning and development.

The 77-inch (1.95m) tall bronze statue depicts Robinson as a rookie in 1947 stealing home, a nod to his aggressive base-running.

It stands in the left field reserve plaza, with sweeping views of downtown Los Angeles in one direction and Elysian Park in the other.

Sonic, Silver, and Shadow all have the same height and weight, which is 3 feet, 3 inches, 77 lbs

However, Shadow is immortal and doesn’t age, which means one day, he’ll be shorter and younger-looking than Sonic, Silver, and the rest of his friends for that matter

And if you want to add a sad twist to it, he’ll be alive long after all of his friends are dead
